about

It's difficult to describe the journey that music has taken me on ever since I took its hand and started down this path of unimaginable twists and turns. In a world of surprises, disappointments, friends, foes, hope, despair, luck, and hard work, I quickly discovered that the only consistency in my life was inconsistency. But somehow through it all I was able to anchor myself to that one feeling we all seem to make such a big fuss about. Love.

We are a product of what we choose to feed our hearts and minds.
So why not allow ourselves that daily dose and learn to

Be Love.

Track Name: 30 Day Trial
You can call me crazy when you put down all your magazines
Pages filled with spectacle and fantasy of bloated dreams
We take advice from plastic people
Looking from their plastic steeples
I think they're evil but we're all just people

But they tell us how to live and how to love
About our luck and how we all should...

Everyday
Every hour every minute every generation
We fill our lives with distractions
Everywhere
Every man and every woman from across the nation
Are looking for affection

I don't need celebrity to tell me what to wear and eat
Can you tell me when the hell we came to accept this defeat?
Cuz' if you're asking me if I'm ready to rumble,
I'd say I'd rather see a world,
That's a little more humble

But they tell us how to live and how to love
About our luck and how we all should...

Everyday
Every hour every minute every generation
We fill our lives with distractions
Everywhere
Every man and every woman from across the nation
Are looking for affection

Everyday
Every hour every minute every generation
We fill our lives with distractions
Everywhere
Every man and every woman from across the nation
Are looking for affection
Track Name: Be Love
So I'm back to the place where it all began
A house in Japan but this time I got a plan
Got an arsenal of friends all over the globe
A new set of skills in my frontal lobe
I got a view of the world that makes me want to sing
From Boston to Beijing and all that's in between
Got a heart full of love for the path I'm walkin'
Just give me the mic and I'm a keep on rockin'

Four long years that went by in a flash
Years filled with tears and hurting for cash
Days full of music and nights filled with song
While taking a couple of hits off our trusty...
Stooping it porching it talkin' bout tomorrow
learning to share and not afraid to borrow
and learning now that we're on the other side
There's nothing to fear here, on the outside

If I have anything to offer,
It would be the words of my Mother

Just be love
Just be love
Don't be waiting on the clearest skies
And don't be waiting on the rain to pass you by

So the last time I told you I was living in the midst
But now I'm living in the present look at my list
Coming in at number one is an open heart, and an open mind
But that's only the start yo
Number two is for you and for everyone here
So let go of the fear and won't you lend me your ear
Cuz' having a interaction that turns into connection
doesn't always have to lead to some form of fornication
Number three is for me staring at my reflection
Trying to see who I am through my own deceptions
Leo my man is this a dream or Inception?
Turning aspirations into tangible creations meaning song,
Meaning groove,
Meaning love,
Oh and making you move

If I have anything to offer,
It would be the words of my Mother

Just be love
Just be love
Don't be waiting on the clearest skies
And don't be waiting on the rain to pass you by

Here right now we can fantasize,
Of the possibility to harmonize
To free ourselves from all the lies
That always have the tendency to generalize
We've been taught to internalize
All our dreams that could mesmerize
A sea of different people who don't realize that
Everyday of life,
Is the biggest prize

If I have anything to offer,
It would be to love on another

Just be love
Just be love
Don't be waiting on the clearest skies
And don't be waiting on the rain to pass you by
Track Name: Heavy Heart
Like a child
I stare at the clouds above
Looking for pieces of
Something I'm dreaming up

Like a child
I cry cuz' I need your love
and I try to stay happy,
And I try to stay ready
Held down by this heavy
Heavy heart

Like a boy
I look at the stars above,
And I try to find some meaning,
In all that I'm thinking of

Like a boy
I smile cuz' I feel the love
and I try to stay happy,
And I try to stay ready
Held down by this heavy
Heavy heart

I just need to look at the face of the people around me
If everybody's smiling than I know it will ultimately guide me
To the place I want to be

Like a man,
I bow to the ones above
And I try to find the reasons
To make it up to the top

Like a man
I'm numb from the words of love
and I try to stay happy,
And I try to stay ready
Held down by this heavy
Heavy heart
Track Name: Life On Hold
Trying to paint a picture
Of what it means to be complete
Trying to find direction
While pondering defeat
Looking for potential
But they're never gonna measure up
To the women I've been building up
In my head

The more I see
The less I know
The more I love
It's getting harder to let go
But the more I breathe
I loosen my grip on my life that's been on hold
Or maybe I'm just doing everything that I've been told

It's not about replacing
The feeling of your open hand
Reminding me I'm half the man I can be
It's funny how you made me
Out to be the one that's always right
But the words that echo in the night are of me

The more I see
The less I know
The more I love
It's getting harder to let go
But the more I breathe
I loosen my grip on my life that's been on hold
Or maybe I'm just doing everything that I've been told

I swear the sun shines brighter on you
and for that there's no substitute

The more I see
The less I know
The more I love
It's getting harder to let go
But the more I breathe
I loosen my grip on my life that's been on hold
Or maybe I'm just doing everything that I've been told
Track Name: Kimino Okage
You call it love
I call it gravity
You call it poetry
I call it a symphony
We're both enrolled in life academy
And they've been teaching me
To sing and be free

心の底から愛してるなんて
ドラマの中ではぽろっと言うよね
ここまで来れたのは君のおかげ
とはっきり言える大人になれるよね?

When you're being tough
I know its still love
When you're feeling down
I'll be your jester and your clown
Cuz' like a game of Chess
You know that you're the best
So if you're feeling free let's all sing

心の底から愛してるなんて
ドラマの中ではぽろっと言うよね
ここまで来れたのは君のおかげ
とはっきり言える大人になれるよね?

愛があれば
I can sing forever
愛がなければ
It's better late then never

心の底から愛してるなんて
ドラマの中ではぽろっと言うよね
ここまで来れたのは君のおかげ
とはっきり言える大人になれるよね?

Love, love, love...
Track Name: Your Own Two Feet
Early to bed early to rise
Happy to help and willing to compromise
Oh that's who you'd be, in your fantasy
Your hair would be a little bit brighter
Your skin would be a little bit softer
and your perfect eyes,
would be another perfect color

Whether you find yourself alone,
Whether you find yourself in good company
The journey is your very own
You've got to use your own two feet

And whether you find yourself at ease
Whether you find yourself at odds with your heart
there really is no guarantee,
that you'll have it all from the start

On top of the world on top of your game
Ahead of the curve and everyone knows your name
Oh that's who you'd be but in reality
you know you have to try a little harder
you know you have to climb a little higher
and your perfect plans, are just as good as any other

So don't go searching
for some reason to blame yourself
and don't go searching
for some reason to blame the world

There's no guarantee
That you'll have it all

Whether you find yourself alone,
Whether you find yourself in good company
The journey is your very own
You've got to use your own two feet

And whether you find yourself at ease
Whether you find yourself at odds with your heart
there really is no guarantee,
that you'll have it all from the start
Track Name: Astronaut
Have you, been waisting your time?
Denying all that you want?

You said you wan't to be an Astronaut
You wan't to be a star
You wan't to be a winner
You wan't to go far

But every painting has been hung
And every worthy songs been sung
And every story has been told
Made to fit a lifeless mold

Have you, been closing your eyes?
Relying on the ones around you?

You said you wan't to be an Astronaut
You wan't to be a star
You wan't to be a winner
You wan't to go far

But every painting has been hung
And every worthy songs been sung
And every story has been told
Made to fit a lifeless mold

What you fear might make it clear
If you let your heart grab the wheel and steer.
Cuz' what you feel right now you know is real,
Tonights the night it's your world premier

But every painting has been hung
And every worthy songs been sung
And every story has been told
Made to fit a lifeless mold
Track Name: Heaven Bound
They say shoot for the stars
But don't aim to high
Find your true love
But you can be a bad bad boy

Because sometimes you wait
And sometimes you go
And sometime your late
But somehow you let it go
Sometimes you smile
But sometimes is upside down
We're only here for a while
Then we're all heaven bound

People will tell me
I've got to slow down
While others just say
You've got no time

Because sometimes you wait
And sometimes you go
And sometime your late
But somehow you let it go
Sometimes you smile
But sometimes is upside down
We're only here for a while
Then we're all heaven bound

The seas may roar
and your wings they may be clipped before you soar
I wan't you know
What you living for

Because sometimes you wait
And sometimes you go
And sometime your late
But somehow you let it go
Sometimes you smile
But sometimes is upside down
We're only here for a while
Then we're all heaven bound
