Kelvyn Colt "We were so broke we had to share our dreams" thank you for being who you are.
Thank you Leo aka GoldDust, the way you play the giutar is magical.
After showing me that place, something changed, thanks for sharing that aura with me Ruben Liska.
I also want to thank Adisa, Bryant & Michael for being a part of this project.

Track Name: Experience
Part.I

No time to waste we got to make experience
After-life may our soul come back in new appearance
And all the bad we did will interference
Reflection of my own I see a kid walking home

How little does he know - where his mind will grow to
All he has is dreams, questions how he’s going to do
Don't stand around and let what others say come true
It might be positive or negative but it's nothing new

Hook

I got no time anymore
Cause it seems to fly by faster then ever before
I got to make experience
I got to make experience

Part.II

While we here we have so much to learn
How come that all the good we give won’t come back in return?
The little spark inside you that can make the bush burn
Your mind is gasoline and every thought is fire
Addiction takes you higher -

But it leaves you behind
Reminiscing 'bout the days you thought you wehre fine
Like a vinyl you lend to a friend years ago
Time go make a record skip
Needle marks another hit
Re-design your life when it all could be so God knows different

Hook.II

And I got no time, anymore
Cause' it seems to fly by faster then ever before
I got to make experience
I got to make experience

Part.III

Knowing what is happening - feel every emotion!
But a tech when it - when it tries to bring you down
Happiness and health seems to walk hand in hand
Life is nothing but a traffic jam

I'm waking up, waking up all these lies
I'm passing them. Pushing down paddle on metal
Speeding like im traffic-en
Cocaine !
I'm sweating boy don’t you be foolish
Ending up using some - losing son

Hook.II

And I got no time, anymore
Cause' it seems to fly by faster then ever before
I got to make experience
I got to make experience

Part I

So much hate in this world it's a dirty place
Earth - once a present to keep our children safe
Novocaine against poverty that should probably
Solve the problem: politicians - hashtag comedy

What I was once proud to be, I became ashamed of
It was just a word, something that we named us
Master - take them chains of me
What do you think my grandmother would've gave to be free
Pardon me!

Part II

Where is the education?
Money, greed dosen´t mean
That the gates will open up top
Lord forgive us to stop
Trying to make a life worth living
We need to understand that this life is God-given
A chance to accomplish Great
Let hate see what great does, let great be where hate once was

Apologies spoken out to the one's
The children with guns, bullets buried deep down in their lungs
A tragedy but a normal picture beneath the sun

Part.III

Generation "Why?" we what the answers
We all blood and flesh but do we have similar chances?
Teachers told me I wasn’t shit, but i went past that
Words are whips - so many scars lasted
I'm a child of God, who do you call bastard?

At the end of the day it could be ashes or casket
Now teach me right if I'm wrong
As long as God is on my side
I have the proper guidance to grow individual strong

Track Name: Gold Inside
[Bryant]

Someone please - hello
Someone please wave goodbye
Someone please sit n my shadow
When I'm not gold inside

When I'm not gold inside


[Elijah Hook]

Walking 'till our feet hurt
Is that something we really
Consider as us?
Cause' I've walked you this far
And it seems like we both can't get enough
My addiction I need more stuff

We all alone, but sister stay strong
We worth the purpose
It's in every each and one of us

The color gold when we are born
It seems to be torn
By the years on our back
Sins, little lies -
The devil has its impact

In fact it leaves an infection
Be the cure, seal the wound
Darling, be my connection
The one of kind -

A Guide when it's weakness inside
I show - but cover with pride
All I need is somebody to wave
Goodbye when I leave

Am I asleep? Am I awake?
Last breath so deep
Lost track of of my heartbeat

Gate opening up many miles away
With comfort smiles they wave "welcome"
When the world has said farewell to me


Hook


[Bryant]

Someone please - hello
Someone please wave goodbye
Someone please sit in my shadow
When I'm not gold inside

Someone please understand..


PartII


[Elijah Hook]

Are you the one isolated in the shadow of sand?
Growing up with nothing but a mind to understand
The weight of the world on our shoulder, are you able to stand?
Questions every day to give closure on Almighty's plan

Do we all get to the point where we brake?
Leading us to miss actions, we regret - call mistakes?
First experience in a forest getting bit by a snake
The pain fades away the fear creates hate!

Key-moments exist, to find out before it's to late
Certain appearances - Universe will have to set straight
Meanwhile practice strength and keep up faith
Respect indeed - the first error to be made

No pressure - brainstorming on what it could take
Following the flow from the source of a lake
It's mankind who’s digging up humanity's grave
And at times it feels like no one's ever be safe


Hook


[Bryant]

Gold inside

Someone please - hello
Someone please wave goodbye
Someone please sit in my shadow
When I'm not gold inside

Someone please - hello.. hello.. hello..


[Elijah Hook]

Would you please stand in my shadow - when I'm not gold inside?


[Bryant]

Hello... hello... hello...


Part.III


[Elijah Hook]

So we loose the glowing color little by time
What makes us laugh, can make us cry
The fruit we eat to live can make us die

New relationship goals
Sport-cars, fancy clothes -
Matched out wardrobe

I understand what you trying to tell me
But don’t come up in my galaxy
Talking all that nonsense!
Consequences is all I read in your words
Let me live my life and you live yours

It's like we loose ourself, trying to find who we are
Planting for tomorrows promise, it can make you star
Head hanging out the window, dropping seeds out the car
Our destination is meant to become beyond far

Superficial words can’t hurt us
Nutrition's love, trust, believe in yourself
Being has purpose -
Fearless - I'm aware that one day
All beings believing in God or not
Will be relieved by leaving this surface



[Bryant]

Someone please lend a hand, cause I'm on my own
And are you the one?
And are you the one?
And are you the one?
And are you the one?

My dream is to have lots of dough like Rothschild
On Buddha craft my lao-tze quotes though hostile

Philosophies embedded in my skully
From the womb to the tombs
Coons be headed for the money

We dehydrated and we thirsty
Can it be I made it
See no Kennedy
They did not murk me

My celebration thought's
A Thot with her ass fat
Without pause bro
Up and down in stocks like Nasdaq

What I visualize
Emphasize I'd smash that
Hashtag scratch that
Let us have a flashback

From nine five
My pedigree's on nine fives
Real Titans dog
If you pussy they take nine lives

Don't believe the hype
Don't believe the hype

Elijah hook and Kelvyn colt's all you want and like

Off to war we go
For the money junkies gold
Nothing new in the west
As my flesh reaps my soul



Hook


[Elijah Hook & Kelvyn Colt]


Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Cause the media's got our minds

Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Cause the media's got our minds



[Elijah Hook]


Don’t believe the hype
The parasite is still inside
It doesn't act polite asking if I'm black or white
Questions, questions puff puff pass
Won’t brake my head for shit that didn’t make sense in the past

I need to cut the television of - my head is hurting
Mom gets home before I start my after school work
This ass is burning - assassinations, john does, pornos
My whole afternoon ruined by something so normal

I'm only six and you can find me on the internet
You are telling me, these old filthy men ain't in to that
Book faces and phone eyes, home control systems can’t you see these lies
Make up - make up

Your life is not as pretty as it could be
But why? When commercials are showing you precisely how it should be
Follow us if confidence is your weakness
Through my good words and your money -
Sure, we can achieve this!



Hook


[Elijah Hook & Kelvyn Colt]


Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Cause the media's got our minds

Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Don't, don't don't believe the hype
Cause the media's got our minds
