Welcome 01:23
Miami Beach 04:08
There’s nothing we can do now The earth has spoken Miami beach is now part of the ocean We used to go swimming there Where they’re now drilling (drill, drill, drill, spill) Wish we could all put our hands in Touch rings and fix it like Captain Planet There’s nothing we can do now The earth has spoken Miami beach is now part of the ocean (call it romantic I just miss the clean atlantic before it was filled with plastic.) If we don’t do something the earth will be broken Miami beach will sink into the ocean
Gotta go and get it Layin low for too long We know what it is (random bullshit) Gotta go and get it Fought the feelin too long I’m over this (random bullshit)
Milk and salt poured on my memory Layers of flesh rest on my energy Weight of you and everyone When I said stop you said no why This is my vessel, I hold it with my insides
A.I. 04:34
oh they’ll be here soon for me and you there'll be no room
We are all part of the animal kingdom
Stardust 03:08
I’m a shooting star Imma break apart Rain on myanmar Dustin the bazaar
(Hark Madley) Every day I buy weed Like it’s any other grocery Green kush gonna set me free My serenity So we gotta think critically About the people in the penitentiary Who were locked up for doing the same shit Smoking some tree like me (Lando Chill) plant from the earth, damn whatchu think it’s worth, legalize the shit but give a damn if my people hurt, drug war work, Tricky Dick ran up on our turf, put us in the lurch, from Ronny Reagan, on Bill we hatin, no deal relating, getting 5 to 10 while rich folk out here money makin, prejudicial havens, mass incarceration, a plague to us black and brown, Kim hold it down? that’s some maturation, be the tip of the spear, whatchu hear ain’t what they saying, commodify the herb that birthed the word dope, marijuana smoke in my blood, this what showed me love when a kid was down, this bud took me ‘bove, blow that smoke around, just cut the red tape, (yo) and let the homies delegate, (yo) ain’t no heaven sake for making up for lost years lost years… lost years... (Chorus) this for the kinfolk who caught up in the jail house, this for the plant who understand who we all about, this for the bud who gon guide us on the hardest route, this for the change to the game we gon make it out.
this, my best dreamline
Tomato Soup 04:36
We’re longing for a change It’s been way too fucking long now We’re longing for a change We’re longing for a change It’s been way too fucking long now We’ll die if we don’t change (it’s been way too fucking long now)


Our planet is burning,
Our people are hurting...
