(Verse)
Sapelo's a place off Carolina
Speaking tongues that run into each other
Dance the Buzzard Lope
Is simply what they do
If the spirit moves you to you know they'd
Love to dance with you
beautiful people on these Islands full of life and love
Speaking words of truth and freedom
So much overcome
If you don't get there soon
You're gonna miss them when they're gone
You're gonna miss them when they're gone

(PreChorus)
Gullah never have to answer where did they come from
Geechee always knew their freedom came from up above
If you don't get there soon
You're gonna miss them when they're gone
You're gonna miss them when they're gone

(Chorus)

HEAD GAMES
Yeah, I like AfroBeat. This isn't exactly that style but I used a GaGa rhythm that is played in (Cuba) and a singer from Senegal who says they don't listen to Afro-Beat in Senegal. Anyway, the song is about how the media pushes fear.

JUSTIFIED
A slightly spooky song about lost. This was my mom's favorite. Unfortunately, I lost her 3 days after I released it this album which is why I didn't really put any true efforts into marketing it, until now. I can't listen to it any more, but I hope you like it. I dedicate this one to her beautiful soul & spirit.

MISS CON STRUED
Just listen to the song, you'll get it.

Chorus:
She's twisted
Words intertwined with lies
She got my words all turned them 'round
She heard them upside down
I know you hurt inside
But this is just a lie
This is not the truth
The girl has tricksied you
She is Ms. ConStrued

FREDDIE THE CHUMP
I wanted to play with drum grooves in this song. I studied percussion for over 20 years and I wanted to see if I could create a "Tango" type of danceable breakbeat groove. I think I did pretty good.

BIZARRE
This song is about wanting to be yourself. Accepting you and not worrying about keeping up with the Jones'.

Chorus:
If I had to, I could be you
But I want to, Just be me.
If you want me to, Be just like you
But I won't fit in
You think I'm bizarre, how twisted we are

(Double verse)
Now when you wanna hang
you wanna do the same thang
I never know just what my flow is.
Now I'm to into me, that's how its gonna be
Ain't' bout to keep up with the Jonses.
And when its all said and done what you got to show
that we looking for a similar vision.
To the next level of the game
it may not be the same, that's the human condition.
So let's agree to disagree cause you don't understand me
I appreciate your confusion.
Let's not complex or perplex this simple pettiness
What you see is what you get.
This is beauty, don't forget the real me
With all the flaws and the finesse.
I know I ain't perfect, but tell me who is
