lyrics

(How long, how long, how long will it take? How long will it take to be free)
Chorus
Professor with the Midas touch beats to gold
Reap sown seeds so must be the flow
Grown through the process of actual habitatual
Natural life trust me I know
This bassline aint battery farmed
If you box your existence you gradually harm it
You don’t wanna see your creativity stunted

By some jargonistic genre blogging chronic dumb shit
Up on top of his lap
With a facade more see-through than what I got from the tap
This Cilla humour gets a “lorra lorra” laughs
But I flow to take the land back twoking the map
So face the day the flavour maker kids you not
This is not time to waste on if it’s laser bass or glitch hop
Cos serotonin is essential to the brain
We need the sunshine like the consequence of rain
Essentially the sentence stays the same
Re-arrange the format come another day
The words’ll make more sense if put another way
I’ve got a funny feeling that the seasons have changed
We’ll soon have monsoons not drizzles in June
And winters so cold you’d rather live on the moon
So in short get yourself out experience the freshness
Give me a cheer if you get this...

Chorus

Break the safety barrier make it hasty
Do the DIY take the piece of pie pastry
Nature made greed and greed hated nature
That’s why the simple danger was the final infiltrator
Set the contract to do greed’s dirty work
Soon people flew to the task like the early bird
In the thirty-first century is likely we might be
Drowned by Aquarius and rightly so
The flow was code 42 the most thought he drew
Plans would grow surely true
But he forgot the damn anomalies
Rocking man’s science and a lot of mad philosophies
The madness probably took him in the end
But the bend that he took himself had a sad honesty
Techno-sapien wired up inside man
Is why the ‘devil makes work for idle hands’

(How long, how long, how long will it take? How long will it take to be free) X4
