about

This is one of my favorite songs right now. I originally wrote it when I was on tour in France last year and have recorded the remix for The Dreamer Mix. Enjoy!

lyrics

AIMA'S LYRICS:

Crunk. Crump. Bump. Against all the anguish
Street slang bangs on the walls of language
Spanglish. Franglais. Doesn't matter what I say
When it comes to the heart it all translates
So I transform.
Co-create. Generate bliss from the scorn
I've been working on this ish since the day born
Mind don't quit, it keeps me up till the morn
A Come on
Leave me be. Now bring me home
Push me out my comfort zone
And when I call
Don't want to hear the dial tone
So pick it up
And answer to the unknown
HELLO?
Eyes open check it
Energy electric
Company eclectic
Movements connected
When the people stand up and request it
Rise up to the occasion and be invested

HOOK:
Sound the Alarm. Switch to night vision
Questioning belief, question inquisition
World's changing all the time. I Better change positions
Ears to the curb, and all the cities listen (2x)

Verse 2:
Now why we letting people struggle so many years?
How do the people survive on them blood, sweat, and tears?
Where do we draw the line on how much pain is fair?
What can I call a truth, when lies are everywhere?
When will the veils lift, so that we all see clear?
What happens when your race, it just all but disappears?
When will our time run out, with nothing left to spare?
How do I find an answer when these questions fill the air?
It seem like day after day and I'm running out of breath
And I'm looking for an open door within eternal quest
At best, my head is out of water. One falter.
Could lead to me being pulled down under and drowning altered
Now and forever changed, well nothing stays the same
I was born into a world obsessed with playing games
Battling my failure, my dreams are my rival
There's no need to ask, this is a question of survival

HOOK:
Sound the Alarm. Switch to night vision
Questioning belief, question inquisition
World's changing all the time. I Better change positions
Ears to the curb, and all the cities listen (2x)
