[Verse 1: Imagine] Yo, uh Things have changed but you’re not that different Just bits and pieces that you brought back with you Struggling through the cold ass winter Life is hard you know we all have issues Sometimes it would be easier to just runaway But if you think about it you’ll feel better when the sun awakes Another way we wish we’ll find before we leave The less life we have left the more we breathe Don’t leave it all behind, when she don’t show no signs Love and happiness are two feelings that will cure your mind And what’s yours is mine, that’s what we all say The world is fucked up but it ain’t nobody’s fault here Let’s make it all clear, we are the cause here If we don’t stand up you know we’re bound to fall here What’s new in stores here? Words from yours truly Looking at the earth, just tell me how can we ignore beauty? [Chorus: Imagine & Dr Koul] Uh, yo Looking at the earth, just tell me how can we ignore beauty? How can we ignore beauty? (Eh) Looking at the earth tell me just how can we ignore beauty Eh, said I’m looking at the, uh, uh [Verse 2: Dr Koul] First to be last, last to be first Thirst to expand like birds from the nest Open hands outlast closed eggs But groping hands caused an outbreak of closed legs Like open banks cause an overdose in hopelessness And no-man’s lands cause an influx in homelessness Don’t pretend you didn’t notice this: The more a man lends, the more his friends owe him shit And you could say I need an optimist lens I’m no optometrist, but with the cause 100 percent I’m all in 20-20 with nothing left And despite my pessimism I’m in love with my life Don’t need rose-tinted glasses I don’t see with my eyes but with my heart, And the heart never ignores the beauty of life, even in dark [Chorus: Imagine & Dr Koul] Looking at the earth, just tell me how can we ignore beauty? Uh, how can we ignore beauty? (Eh) Looking at the earth tell me just how can we ignore beauty [Verse 3: Evita Koné] Feeling weak through bleak times I’m showing evidence of peaks through deep likes On the sides of my cheeks I show sings That I am meek though I once smiled I nosedive into a blissful oblivion Where there’s no balance within the meridian An elusive and ethereal comedian I ask if hiding is a part of healing when you’re Already in the deep end When you're already in the deep end I’m losing sight of what to do Getting tangled as i trip over my roots I’m tryna understand that To be strong, you gotta be loose too

[Intro: Dr Koul & Imagine] Yo, uh S-K-D (motherf*****) (DJ, y’all) Come on, uh [Dr Koul: Verse 1] Break the machines like "error, error" Breaking your dreams like "error, error" Hate and deceit brings terror Better learn before you burn, better late than never ever Wage war with every page you turn, it's "error, error" We use your drones against you Your schools, your tools, it's all in a fool's errand Your soul is spent through like the tip of a pencil And the drip of a stencil, it's the end of the old era [Imagine: Verse 2] When is the right moment to make the best move To keep your light glowing and let the rest groove Lie in denial or choose to learn something In the fire of desire who doesn’t burn something? A trail of failure or a mountain of knowledge In this fairy tale what does the coward acknowledge? Open your mind and see what hides behind the scenes It’s a thin line between you and I but we can find some peace [Chorus: Evita Koné] You're allowed to make mistakes but not to hide them The underground ain't for fakes so don't try bluffing You know you got what it takes when failure's not an option Ride with precaution You're allowed to make mistakes but not to hide them The underground ain't for fakes so don't try bluffing You know you got what it takes when failure's not an option Ride with precaution [Imagine: Verse 3] Are you the yin or yang, why d’you stay in the ranks? Who’s gonna fill the banks with no more bills to spend? Watch them all kill the lands, how can they still pretend? They made this shit commence, who’s gonna make it end? [Dr Koul: Verse 4] When perfection is impossible and error's unavoidable The lesson is you've got to know your limits And the choice is to let go and take the risk Or let it roll and reposition It's a battle of the wits so win or lose you’ll gain wisdom The brain listens, the muscles are tamed with it The aim's limited when you're stuck with the same gimmicks We shuffle lyrics and spit with the greats in this game We make business with chillers whose names will remain [Imagine: Verse 5] Yo it all goes together, everything’s connected Mind body and soul, all should be respected Stop looking for perfection, it doesn’t exist Mistakes are new directions so that you can persist Come on [Chorus: Evita Koné] You're allowed to make mistakes but not to hide them The underground ain't for fakes so don't try bluffing You know you got what it takes when failure's not an option Ride with precaution You're allowed to make mistakes but not to hide them The underground ain't for fakes so don't try bluffing You know you got what it takes when failure's not an option Ride with precaution [Scratches: Dj Tiny Tim]

[Scratches: Dj Tiny Tim] [Verse 1: Evita Koné] One man’s trash is another man’s treasure And one man’s stress is another man’s pleasure Who am I to say which one of these men is lesser? We pretend to crack the codes But really we are all just guessers That someone else’s greenery is alway greener than in reality Have you looked up at the scenery Sometimes that shit’s beyond belief So take a deep breath And you can save yourself a little grief No worries comparison is only joy’s thief [Chorus: Evita Koné & Imagine] You stop, you look, you listen What’s missing? It’s not so bad Don’t be mad, it’s time for a new beginning [Verse 2: Imagine] Don't know which side of the coin will find me enjoyment Because I'm at the point, need to let it out so I can finally be joyful If my mind isn't open, I will so blindly be focused Asked mother earth if she could write me a poem A life to be told here, the liveliest moments In a world of chaos we be fighting the omens Uniting our forces, we be lighting the torches Our goal is simple: to use all the words we have Until the rhyming is over. [Chorus: Evita Koné & Imagine] You stop, you look, you listen What’s missing? It’s not so bad Don’t be mad, it’s time for a new beginning You stop (you stop), you look (you look) You listen (you listen), what’s missing (what’s missing) It’s not (it’s not), so bad (so bad) Don’t be mad, it’s time for a new beginning [Verse 3: Dr Koul] Hate is a hot coal so don't hold a grudge Your plate of revenge is cold and probably infected with bugs Is it not so? You're seeking the perfect chill Warm sun and a breeze, calm trees and a still sea over effort's hill But you've got to build up your skill, And you've got to work on being humble What is there when your thoughts distill, And you look into your heart and there's only jungle? Put down the machete and gather the fruit of your labor and eat your fill Come around when you're ready and open the gate and be friendly so we can build [Chorus: Evita Koné & Imagine] You stop (you stop), you look (you look) You listen (you listen), what’s missing (what’s missing) It’s not (it’s not), so bad (so bad) Don’t be mad, it’s time for a new beginning You stop (stop), you look (look) What’s missing (missing), it’s not (not), so bad (bad) It’s time for a new beginning [Scratches: Dj Tiny Tim]

[Scratches: Dj Tiny Tim] I got something I want to say to you [Verse 1: Evita Koné] Oh, oh, oh, oh I bring vision to the blind I make the mean spirited kind And if you try a little tenderness When your heart is so calloused I’ll give you what you need, I’ll give you what you want I plant a seed and I watch it grow Sing a little serenade and we can lie down in the shade And say, “Wassup?” I’m happy, to be spending time with you, wassup Share a little stolen moment I think its cool and I’m just grateful To spend a moment just us two, oh I Wassup, wassup Wassup, wassup Can you lay in the shade with me, oh I know, I know things have been so frayed lately Can you lay in the shade with me I know that it ain’t been easy, oh, just all I need [Chorus: Evita Koné] Summer’s almost up and I don’t wanna rush into nothing You leave my soul humming My special something Because summer’s almost up and I don’t wanna rush into nothing You leave my soul humming My special something Wassup, (uh!) wassup, wassup, Wassup, wassup, wassup, wassup Wassup, wassup, wassup, wassup Wassup, wassup, wassup, wassup Wassup, wassup, wassup [Imagine: Verse 2] Wassup girl, it’s been a minute! Let’s hold this feeling until it’s finished A dedication, eulogy Just meditating, you and me are left here waiting At the funeral of our memories The energy is scattered, whatever we imagined We’ll never know what happens, we might never leave this magic Things could go wrong if we plan too much And this is just my way to thank you, love [Dr Koul: Verse 3] I was blind but now I can see Because I finally closed my eyes, now my mind is free And accepted the darkness That’s where begins the light, that’s inside of me I used to be blind by reflections And looking too hard for perfection I was afraid of the loneliness But now I feel OK if there is only us, yeah [Chorus: Evita Koné] Summers almost up and I don’t wanna rush into nothing You leave my soul humming My special something Summers almost up and I don’t wanna rush into nothing You leave my soul humming My special something Ooh, oh, oh, oh

[Dr Koul] I speak rhizomes in freestyle poems that leave my dome To meet my opponent with greetings and eyes open A wise omen to those who tried roaming too close to the wide open But chose to confine others to lines closed It's a fine road that we trod and fall off from Lie to cope with lack of self-love that we laugh off We tie a rope to our dreams, dying of sad thoughts Defeatist I am not, the foetus of mad love Is born from a war-torn tone-deaf sound of a bomb dropped In a sworn oath to never a abandon hope Rolling rock like a band on road, ever stoned without a gram of coke We demand our cut of grandma's rolls Never over in graves, we came over from caves To so-called civilization and we lost all of our hard-earned greatness Under tar roads paved, where a car drove for ages to far-off places And still lost the amazon to corporate waste Copy and paste as we carry on sampling grace Aiming for outer-space with a culture we re-create We will be saved by our innocence Placed here as middle men between what we planted and ate We are the children of fate, we never planned on change But now adapt to return back to our original shape It's called Hip Hop

[Verse 1: Dr Koul] Here we go, here we go, here we go, here we go Yo, Middle class like John Lennon People party like Vlad Lenin Media savvy like Don Lemon Tragicomedy like Jack Lemon Astrophysics like Tyson Knuckles itching like Tyson Academic like Dyson Life’s a gamble, throw dice in All the snake eyes, I could make ice out the venom At the same time, can’t complain I’m quite the gentleman Born with privilege, torn from within Missed opportunities I’d been given Scorned the influence and then just jumped back in again I’m a warrior for peace, I’m a doctor for the sickness Done just enough school to know it’s all a big business I got just enough cool to choose to be a musician Broke just enough rule to know ruse can’t make up for wisdom, Wassup? [Verse 2: Evita Koné] Oh, oh-ooh-oh I am that black light, help you find that silver lining Shining like a backlight, sit down and get your facts right Better act right, because I’m passed wise I prophesized, don’t listen up it might pass you by Karma circumvents just like a satellite (like a satellite) Because I’m an old soul with much to bestow Truth is best when it's stone cold because we both know I been down these same old roads When your ego’s in a choke hold And you never let the ghosts go And you can’t take off the blindfold You don't know that you’ve been sold (that you’ve been sold) [Verse 3: Imagine] We got a lot of things to say (say) but we’re not sure we’ll be okay (okay) Now let us ride a different wave (wave) so we can finally be awake Start from scratch mind the fire, heart’s the match Light it up, cross the path We’re on a universal quest, yeah And you can be our guest here Open doors, that’s what we’re hoping for We let life teach things we didn’t know before “Dreams took place here”, we know where we wanna go We make music for the soul, so if you want to feel the love Connect to the above, now you can let it go You can let it go, you can let it go [Evita Koné] You can let it go [Outro: violin by Julian Azkoul]

[Xoel Gonzalez] La luna es la madre de la noche El sol es el padre del día, que brilla, que bonita De buena forma, del espacio, de la galaxia Que el sol brilla más que la luna La luna brilla a la noche, el sol brilla de día Para que ayude en la noche, Porque si no en la noche no se ve nada, nada, nada Hay que haber un poco de luz
8.
[Verse 1: Imagine] Yo, yeah Let my mind travel through the heart of the night Take a pen, I’m on board, let the darkness bring light Nightly on the grind dreams are hard to find Music in my soul keeps my stars aligned Wish luck to the homeless sleeping on the bank’s steps Thinking I have choices that others can’t get Yet I keep rolling, police drive by my time is stolen Keep watching in a town of clocks, sleep walking Until the sound just drops [Chorus: Dr Koul & Evita Koné] Drive around like a fancy clown Not the same planet, same part of town Drive around like a fancy clown Not the same planet, same part of town Drive around like a fancy clown [Verse 2: Dr Koul] Riding shotgun as your ghost drives the city streets Rhyming at the top of our lungs while the city sleeps You roll a one-arm backside spliff Other hand on the wheel like a one-man army kid The jet d’eau lit up, eerie like your beat list I let go and lean back, letting the seat lift Swerve despite the level of alkie in your breathing system Hoping we ain’t stopped by the cops, because of the speeding limit Philosophies of critics and dirty thoughts Not yet erased by the sweeper cars setting off On the slumbering pavements where they clean the filth Hide what’s a daily occurance in Geneva still [Chorus: Dr Koul & Evita Koné] Drive around like a fancy clown Not the same planet, same part of town Drive around like a fancy clown Not the same planet, same part of town Drive around like a fancy clown [Outro flute by Ewan Dayot]

[Chorus: Dr Koul & scratches by Dj Tiny Tim] Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you don’t know Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you don’t Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you really don’t Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you don’t (Now you know) Don’t know [Verse 1: Dr Koul] Socrates said that he knew that he knew nothing But I’ll even question that as I rap my assumptions Indeed, so few certainties that I’m even uncertain of my own uncertainty And lord knows I’m no Socrates – and when we say “Lord knows” We’re admitting we sure don’t, and instead of giving up We trust in something beyond us and our insecurities and still have hope We’re living in a system wired by a mechanistic scientism On the basis of acquiring materialistic tokens and creating hierarchies Validated by our outlook on lightwaves and particles, but I reject it There may be so much more to this world and we can’t detect it Decolonize and harmonize the dialectic, fighting for open-mindedness Finding my life’s lessons, until death... and then what lies waiting? [Verse 2: Imagine] From a superficial handshake to a rushed goodbye that can’t wait If we’ve known each other forever then Why do you choose to look the other way? Why do we care so much what others say? And while we can’t do nothing about this It is only ourselves we’re doubting. Look at us Trying to do too much just for appreciation Mental alleviation, bunch of fake moments with no abbreviation Why do you talk so much if you don’t know shit? Is it some kind of way to keep avoiding all that you're scared to face, And so you wear a mask because you can’t bear the hate. Why do you care so much what others say? Look deep inside there is another way [Clarinet solo by Clément Meunier] [Evita Koné: Verse 3] Got nothing to prove to nobody We’re all part of a ruse, we’re just probably going Through so many costumes, nobody’s here living Like we know all the rules, it's all a drawing But I don’t have it all sketched out No drafts but the task is to take the mask off Come on and air it out, if you don’t have it figured out The picture’s getting bigger now [Bridge: Evita Koné] We would rather our worries stay underground, because What we’re looking for will not be in the lost and found [Chorus: Dr Koul & scratches by Dj Tiny Tim] Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you don’t know Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you don’t (Now you know!) Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you really don’t Don’t act like you don’t know if you know Don’t act like you know if you don’t (Now you know!) Don’t know [Outro: Evita Koné] We would rather our worries stay underground What we’re looking for will not be in the lost and found We would rather our worries stay underground What we’re looking for will not be in the lost and found

[Evita Koné with backing vocals by Dr Koul] Love, love, love Silent symphonies that rush through every single artery The song is not boastful nor loud But is as hopeful as a cloud spotted in a drought Yet you feel its cacophony from the pit of your stomach to every extremity The sweetest bitterness that just won’t let up That is there even when you’ve given up The melody felt from within and heard from all around The dialects it speaks are manifold but fear not if your tongue is weak And your ears are ill-versed in its patois, you will know it when you hear it You will know it when you hear it, you will know it when you… Love, love, love Everybody just wants to Love, love, love Beatles they say all we need is Love, love, love Grab somebody, tell them that you Love, love, love

[Verse 1: Dr Koul] Yeah, What’s that? The nonsense Of your conscience, and another love trap An obsession with your common-sense Provocation of a sort of really ugly hard smack And a blessing, dissimulated in the form of a lesson A girl that never calls back (Fall in love) Please don’t... [Verse 2: Imagine] An arrow but no aim or destination Just a simple problem with a hard solution in the midst of hesitation First look is just too vague to even know what lies there waiting. Just don’t... [Verse 3: Dr Koul & Imagine] Who’s that? It’s your conscience Telling you to bring love to an honest point No rules or conditions, just a new and improved Bound to disappoint [Verse 4: Imagine] Now wake up! It’s the only way to save us You can’t make me [Verse 5: Imagine] Gave it all to you, from the mind to the heart Don’t wanna fall for you. Please go away You think I’m yours today? (Lies from the start) you never told the truth. [Verse 6: Dr Koul] You never showed your moves, and neither did I Didn’t want to owe it to you, I guess I shouldn’t (Fall in love) I shouldn’t fall in love [Chorus: Evita Koné] I said that I should be careful with where I put my heart Because things can build up just as fast as they can fall apart But I know I’m lighting a fuse that’s about to spark But I don’t know where to start I said that I should be careful with who I fall in love We try to deal with our demons but we ain’t strong enough But I can’t help it in the end, we must be bound to (Fall in love, fall in love) [Verse 7: Evita Koné] Cautious and so careful Trying hard just not to be fearful Because I learn from mistakes Have faith in the risk that I take Every tear’s just a drop in the lake And the waves that I make bring me to the gates And from yourself, you know there’s no mistake so [Verse 8: Dr Koul] Honest and aware of how hard it can be to be faithful When you suffer a heartbreak and hardly can tolerate Thoughts that can suffocate, love that is commonplace Costly and complicated, yet constantly contemplating Other options than making me [Verse 9: Imagine] Why does it have to get worse when I try my best? Want it so bad to work, need to mind my step. (Lost in my soul but I know if I go, I will grow) Realise all the time I spent, trying to be what I wasn’t, Didn’t see what was coming, now my feelings don’t function. I don’t mean to... [Chorus: Evita Koné] I said that I should be careful with where I put my heart Because things can build up just as fast as they can fall apart But I know I’m lighting a fuse that’s about to spark But I don’t know where to start I said that I should be careful with who I fall in love We try to deal with our demons but we ain’t strong enough But I can’t help it in the end, we must be bound to (Fall in love, fall in love) [Outro guitar by Erwan Valazza & trumpet by Zacharie Ksyk]

[Imagine] Pain provided pleasure to the reason of letting go Letting go was just a matter of time Time was killed to provide pleasure to pain Pain wasted time looking for pleasure Pleasure was playing hide-and-seek with the idea of letting go When would pain let go? Time had no idea Now the idea of pleasure was painful because time didn't come And letting go wasn't a good reason So reason left more time for pain to go and provided new ideas of pleasure So pleasure finally took the time to kill the pain and found a reason to let go

[Verse 1: Evita Koné] You’re breaking the score, you're waging a war You’re playing the game and you’re taking it all [Verse 2: Imagine] Escaping it all, breaking the law Taken for granted, you're breaking her heart [Verse 3: Dr Koul] Too late to ignore this place in your soul The shape of a hole, can't relate to the story [Verse 4: Evita Koné] That takes the cake, your name on the wall Save it for later, you're blamed for it all [Verse 5: Imagine] You thought it was real, you’re lost in your feelings You'd never expect what your heart could reveal [Verse 6: Dr Koul] So cherish your meal, deliciously real Delectable delicacies are concealed In everyday moments you let yourself steal Emotions are sold but your soul is sincere [Verse 7: Imagine] Your spirit is growing like roses in spring Don't do what you're told, just do what you feel [Verse 8: Evita Koné] Grow like a tree, it’s branches and leaves Roots are your ancestors, moving with ease [Verse 9: Dr Koul] The wind and the breeze, [Verse 10: Evita Koné] The mountains, the peaks [Verse 11: Imagine] The source of it all, who knows what it means? [Saxophone bridge by Esther Vaucher] [Chorus: Imagine & Evita Koné] There are some things we just can’t talk about There are some things we just can’t talk about There are some things we just can’t talk about There are some things we just can’t talk about There are some things that we just cannot talk about I don’t know if I should open or shut my mouth If I tell you what’s on my mind, would you stick around? (Would you stick around?) There are some things that we just cannot talk about I don’t know if I should open or shut my mouth If I tell you what’s on my mind, would you stick around? Ooh [Saxophone outro by Esther Vaucher]

[Intro] The beginning of the end of the end of the beginning has begun. A sad finale played off-key on a broken-down saloon piano In the outskirts of a forgotten ghosttown. I'd rather not bear witness to such blasphemy (Me neither) [Verse 1: Imagine] Yo, wassup, it’s like this, Yeah, yo, one time, yo Looking for a thought like, “What if I write my best shit tonight?” Fight for everything I believe in. But in the end what do I really believe in? Smart question but no answers, so I make of this art a lesson Hard deceptions but I gotta start accepting There can be other ways that lead to different places I think I’ve been here to long it’s like I’m switching stages Damn – Like a verse I’m gonna need a structure (woah) But life is all around the place, it’s like I’m feeling stuck here So contradictory… All I know is that I’m breathing All the rest my friend belongs to mystery I just repeat myself, ain’t this just all a cycle? And it’s meaning is this thing we call survival? What makes me feel alive more than anything Music, soothing to the ear, beautiful thing to die for! [Chorus: Imagine & Evita Koné] Now you can’t tell me what to do, can’t change my point of view It’s all that I’ve been through, the music is like glue Sticking to all my moves, I know just what to do When I’m right here with you: make music, make music [Verse 2: Dr Koul] I’m wasted, but no drink Drowning, nor any drop to drink Breaking, nor any drink to drop Glass shatters around me – but no drink I’m waiting, but no tick Hands raised, nor any clock to tick to I’m pacing, like man’s late, nor any tick to talk to, Time stand still and still stays with no tick Pain portrayed in painstaking portraits Purveyed by poor paupers peddling passing protests See sex as sinful by saintly supervisors successfully Severing senses from seemingly sweet sentiments I’m stuck looking at free beauty behind bars, clutching at straws Feeling pent-up in the large-open bizarre land of the hopeless Engulfed by nothingness of the stars The beauty behind closed eyes within To behold hard the unknown, far more than the said The living more lost than the dead And all I’ve got are these thoughts in my head And I translate them into music. Music [Chorus: Imagine & Evita Koné] Now you can’t tell me what to do, can’t change my point of view It’s all that I’ve been through, the music is like glue Sticking to all my moves, I know just what to do When I’m right here with you: make music, make music [Outro chorus: Evita Koné] Now you (now you) can’t tell me what to do (can’t tell me what to do) Can’t change my point of view (can’t change my point of view) It’s all that I’ve been through (it’s all that I’ve been through) The music is like glue (the music is like glue) Sticking to all my moves (sticking to all my moves) I know just what to do (I know just what to do) When I’m right here with you (when I’m right here with you) Make music, make music (Make music, I know what to do) (Like glue, oooh) [Outro trumpet solo by Zacharie Ksyk]

[Verse 1: Evita Koné] Tell me that it's so absurd that all that we have in this world Is just a kind word. Tell me that it makes no sense that When I used up all my strength it’s all I have left Tell me that it's so absurd that all that we have in this world Is just a kind word. Tell me that it makes no sense that When I used up all my strength its all I have left and, I have bled, I have said all that needs to be said Been left for dead, heart heavy as lead But in the end I still hold up my head. Hold up my head [Verse 2: Dr Koul] Childish dreams, run like streams Teens, destined to be kings and queens Partners in crime I falsely thought that we’d end up as partners in life Castle walls, painted us gray Colorful memories, fading away Dissolved, like sand monuments Or angel wings drawn on front lawns Frost, that we’re numb to Damn – the last time I saw you The passion and fire was gone from your eyes Your beauty a far-off reminder of love’s passage in time Nothing destroyed, it only transforms At least that’s my hope for your newborn Unfairly shoehorned into this world [Verse 3: Imagine] Oh your kingdom is stolen! Wondering why did they take it away Or did you just lose it yourself? Unfaithful, untruthful you fell Now it was so easy taking you down But who’s gonna be picking you up? The luck’s gonna be missing you much When patience is waiting around Now the soul that is hidden calls back To get in the whole that you're digging. You can’t hold back the feeling You sold out your spirit, you thought it was finished. The closer you get from things that you lost the harder it is to let go And time can’t fill in all the tears that you dropped, hot enough to melt gold [Trumpet solo by Evita Koné & Zacharie Ksyk]

[Quentin Byrne-Sutton] My Friend the Moon The moon has appeared without a sound pregnant in the Eastern sky, waiting to help me on my way. The night is blue, infused with yellow rays. I turn off my headlamp, eyes adjusting to the softer light. The moon has flooded the cirque of snow and ice, ridges are cut out in black like moon shadow. We are alone together; our eyes meet. The earth is revolving underfoot but the moon and stars are turning too, that I may keep my balance on the moon path. Gazing at my friend the moon, I think of those I love imagine ponies galloping on moonlit plains, wild and fiery eyed, fish gliding under translucent ice, in a moonbeam, blue turbans of Touaregs winding through the night. Following the moon from East to West I reflect on man’s arrogance, but am soothed by its rays, knowing that moonlight comes from the sun as it treads the Milky Way, with all planets spinning through the universe; our pretentious ways as short-lived as a shooting star. Meanwhile, the night’s blueness has blended seamlessly into light of day, and for a moment the sky belongs to neither night or day, as my friend the moon fades, translucent, in the Western sky, as if to say: “I am only a passer by”.

[Verse 1: Imagine] Hello planet, organic source of life The story is only yours to write Go back as far as you can remember Memories crashing, truth will surrender Abstract thoughts of distant lands Where flowers grow on sinking sands Instant glance of eternity In the lonely brain of a thinking man Picture is shot directly to the soul Images like bullets, times are holes Situations, that climbed and rose From the shoulders of the unknown Now the crowd of doubt just wants to be alone In your house, but you don't feel at home Mystery sings a song that we can all hear If we let our fears sing along [Verse 2: Dr Koul] Hello galaxy, rotating space and time Across eternity with shape divine String dimensions unwound, in theory Unbound in the multiverse they collide Sound creates matter inside your great caverns Surrounded by somatic insights to your patterns And crowns. Your sunny complexion, I love the way it travels around Galloping the Higgs Boson, interloping gravitational pulls Ever subliminal image of God that forms a painting of you From the abyss to the stars, your black holes to your sonic boom Your attention to the chronic doom, ever-impending like a crescent moon Or lack of shadow in the sunday noon, you make the cosmos bloom We’ll come together someday soon [Chorus: Evita Koné, Imagine & Dr Koul] When the moon goes around the sun Only then we’ll assume that we found the one Until then we keep moving to the sound of drums When the moon goes around the sun Only then we’ll assume that we found the one Until then we keep moving to the sound of drums When the moon (When the moon) Goes around (Goes around) the sun (The sun) When the moon goes around the sun (When the moon) Only then we’ll assume that we found the one (Goes around) Until then we keep moving to the sound of drums (The sun) When the moon goes around the sun (When the moon) Only then we’ll assume that we found the one (When the moon) Until then we keep moving to the sound of drums (When the moon) [Outro horns section by Zacharie Ksyk]
