Track Name: A Fresher Shot
(ExP)
Flame Grillin' since 2 thousand and summat/
Killin' it off, you didn't know? then you're about to discover/
Now here'’s another/
Album for you since our proud introduction/
Before the studio we put our lyrics down in a cupboard/
But...…JND and his Dad came round for a cuppa/
And converted my garage to DubWhy and a mountain of rubble/
And it’'s sounding so good, you come round in the summer/
We got the doors open, beats blazing, and we'’re shoutin' and cussin'/
And callin' it cyphering
If you were from West Yorkshire I would always invite you in/
But times have changed, be a while till Mr Nice again/
…There'’s only so much urine on the toilet floor you can wipe and then/
I had to shut the door, and concentrate on something more/
The reaction to the debut album’'s nothing that I could have saw/
Could have seen, could have anticipated/
Gotta make sure we spread to different places and preach the hip-hop basics/
Step one, keep it real, stop faking/
Step two, sick beats, no 808s and/
Step three, dig crates, takes patience for dope breaks/
A whole day on the same beat’'s not wasted/
Shouts to crate diggers in the charity shops/
Or your sampled vinyl borrowed from Granny and Pops/
You may end up with a copy of Abba a lot/
But there'’ll always be a gem that you’'ll happily chop…...what//

(Chorus)
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
It’'s time to bin the old, get a fresher start/
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
Stop complaining and just make a fresher start//

(JND)
A fresher start, on some first month of Uni tip /
Fresher than your Nan's best tulips or petunias /
Spring cleaning out your potty mouths with exuberance /
We'll show you how it should be done and dusted in the truest sense /

Of the words, what I'm meaning is I'm Mr Muscle /
Compared to me you some weaker cats too quick to buckle /
A different hustle, while slinging pins to prick your bubble /
I'm taking shots at you from space aboard the distant Hubble /

Yeah..... you been warned, keep off the grass /
I'll turn the coolest hipster to a boxing bag /
Mad Fresh, I keep a toxic mask handy, why? /
Coz I'm tired of your stink filling up my alveoli /

Force the rhyme; I know I mispronounced it /
Say something, I'll come round and kick your house in /
I couldn't care less if Fabreze was your sponsor /
Or you passed the Daz challenge whilst stood in your boxers /
You bought twenty year ago from Managrove /

Y'still aren't passing go /
Not on my watch like Casio /
I'm fresher than a Winter's day in your birthday suit /
These words are proof, mess with me and it's certain doom //

(Chorus)
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
It’'s time to bin the old, get a fresher start//

(Addverse)
I moved away just to try make a change, switch lanes and throw dice for different games/
Kind of like the old saying no pain no gain, miss my family and friends but needed to break the chains/
I know you think I'm strange and I probably am, I know there's many of you thinking there's a problem with Dan/
But honestly, damn, I've never felt as trapped as I did, was disappointed with my life and the promises as a kid/
A fresher start cos a change is as good as a rest/
Deep breaths, feel blessed, love life, and fear less, clear chest, clean conscience and new intentions/
I'm living out my dreams with a true perception/ cos my old school moves seemed to lose the lessons, sitting in detention,
tensed up and venting/
Feel the negativity entering my resemblance, now I'm inventing power to devour my sentence/
So...turn the page the great escape/
Learn a new way to make what you yearn to take/
Nothing's for certain, some say so straight is the method, but you never cut corners to shave off the seconds//
Cos

(Chorus)
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
It’'s time to bin the old, get a fresher start/
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
Stop complaining and just make a fresher start//
Track Name: Ricky's Journey
(Chorus)
And I can hear the time ticking away /
And I'm picking my brains as I figure my fate /
To try win at a game we all lose though /
We all lose though //

(JND)
I can hear the time tickin', but I don't wanna listen now /
Or sit around as the sand grains trickle down /
See the glass break, spill 'em out /
And what's your life worth? A lot more than this amount /

Don't wanna cross swords with pop sorts with big accounts /
No beats with the Jigga bounce, dig a different sound /
Keep it underground; Vin Diesel prison bound /
And build my vision out of anything my little town has offered me /

Be it success or loss, at least I haven't given up on what I wanna see /
I know tomorrow's not promised, and we shouldn't forget that /
Still forgive those who trespass on your fresh patch /

Do what you can in the time that you get, that's /
Something I'll stress as more important to heads that /
Bumped boom bap, probably listened to Chess' raps /
Coz they might understand where my heads at //

(Chorus)
And I can hear the time ticking away /
And I'm picking my brains as I figure my fate /
To try win at a game we all lose though /
We all lose though //

(ExP)
Bin fightin' a losin' battle with the clock since day one/
But sleep under the same moon, wake under the same sun/
Pace myself but someone needs to find/
Something to stop my cells replacing one another with a weaker type/
...Can never achieve a peaceful mind/
Knowing that my consciousness is to cease and die/
I don't get any comfort knowing I coulda bin a meteorite/
And could go on to become part of a genius or a piece of pie/
Please define, my state of being, my eyes were made for seeing/
My lungs were made for breathing, my brain was made for me and I hate to waste an eon/
Waiting for a reason to make myself believe in the afterlife/
Like I should sacrifice my wants and needs/
My appetite for songs and beats/
And graft till night for the constant greed/
Of some Godless thief and stress about it till I've lost my sleep/
I just want to dream!/
it's a nonsense scheme/
Last century the whole working to live thing served for a purpose/
But I've researched it it's worthless/
We were basic and were herded to churches to be told without worship you'll worsen/
But writing verse is my service/
My home and family is where and who I prefer to do work with/
Until the day I'm murdered by the clockwork turning and burned in a furnace//

(Chorus)
And I can hear the time ticking away /
And I'm picking my brains as I figure my fate /
To try win at a game we all lose though /
We all lose though //

(Addverse)
And with each day the plot thickens, there's no escape from the clock ticking, and time takes from what's given/
As I find my way, living like life is infinite when really it's as finite as twilight twinkling,/
every thing that lives has to die,
times dwindling,
Light waves vibrate
and cycles begin again,/
Till the day comes where your minds in oblivion,
Some say with Christ, others say we die ignorant,/
Every now and then we get an Einstein flippin it,
Darwin took life and design on a different tip,/
A little chance given time now were killing it, 6 days divine on the 7th try chill a bit,/
We're just little blip, blind to the bigger picture passing us by as we're still tryna figure,/
With kaleidoscope eyes
what and why we now think it is, innocently playing I spy like some little kids//
Track Name: Balance It Together
(ExP)
I was...thinking of quitting but decided just to chill a bit/
Married, pushing 30, got a house but I'm still a kid/
Prefer to stay up late and wake up late, smoke a spliff and drink/
The grown up knows I shouldn't and should use some chuffin' discipline/
Not much point to life if not you're livin it/
But not much point burning for half as long cos your light was twice as brilliant/
Too old to be doin' well for my age/
Too young to be giving up anything at this stage/
I just get rid of it/
Inconveniences and time wasters that thrive making my life basically 5 eighths of it nice/
The rest is admin,
patience in lines
waiting for my opportunity to break out and find the sun rays and the shine/
Sittin' in nice environments/
Sipping a pint of Heineken/
Isn't this nice, I'm finding life isn't a grind I'm smiling and/
I've risen from schneidy mindlessness/
Hatin' what I don't like/
Enjoy what I do/
Ignore the rest, if you don't mind/
Forget your head, clear your diary of negativity/
Others seem to travel faster, that’s the theory of relativity/
All this pessimism seems, like you’re trailing and beat/
But you’ve gotta fail to succeed or you’ll fail to succeed//

(Addverse)
Trust me I can tell what you're thinking cos I've been thinking it/
Yeah, rap sank but I swam from that sinking ship/
And brought a little bit back from the boat/
To plant the seed in the hope that it grows/
And takes hold, so the scene can evolve/
And in itself reap the benefit/
Rappers sacrificing themselves in attempt to sell a hit/
But still I keep it relevant if anything, and/
I never sell out cos that's never been a part of the plan/
I remember why I started as an artist in my heart it is cathartic/
Doesn't matter what position I am charted/
If the mainstream's pop, then the stream remains retarded/
In a stagnant cess pool of name any artist/
So I lose faith, switch off, two faced hip-hop has left me with a sour taste/
Listen and allow my grapes to grace the taste buds of anybody listening/
I'm trying to find a balance to stop me from falling in again//

(JND)
ExP was thinking of quittin, I was thinkin’ of quittin too /
Forget rap, watch the telly in the sitting room /
But sometimes, all you need is a break /
Appreciate what you’re missing, no more beats on the brain /
No more crate diggin’, leave the domain /
You want the reasons explained, it’s never easy, life can creep in the way /
Before you know it, many seasons have changed /
Now you’re feeble and grey, 50 years for a measly wage /
Just enough to cover feeding and stay /
But you’ll never own the house that you sleep in and /
Really if you feel what I say, peace to you, you know what’s eating my brain /
Not the booze speed weed or cocaine /
Its my moods, needs, greed and the pain /
That you feel tryna keep it contained /
Fill the pages, all my demons within reach of my scheme to retain /
Some sanity, releasing my strain, coz it’s a balance that can easily sway //
You what...?
Track Name: Transitions Say
(ExP)
So easy to think the grass is greener/
I wish that I could see the beauty in every second that passes, don’t need sadness either/
Cos when I have a fever....or I feel under the weather/
I forget what it feels like to be better and at peace the/
Problem is I don’t notice just breathing comfortably/
Like life doesn’t mean enough to me,
And this seems utterly/
Detrimental to me enjoying the short time/
I was gifted on this planet before it absorbs my/
Carbon, to feed the finite cycle we call life/
We all die, it’s all right, just pour wine/
Your eyes are the tour guide of a thing of beauty/
So easy to get wrapped up in images and duty/
Most of what the government tells you is inaccurate/
Get a lungful of air before they start charging tax on it/
The chairman of Nestle considers water a commodity/
Buys up natural springs in areas stricken with poverty/
So honestly I’d not be surprised with a charge on oxygen/
...How much does owning an atom of carbon cost again?/
The people in power will always work to fill their pockets up/
Even when we vote them in so they can give us options, but/
Don’t play the game just be the change you want to see/
As long as you’re not hurting anyone F the economy/
To often we look at others and think, "what’s wrong with me?"/
But if we’re all thinking the same thing, that’s just comedy//

(Chorus)
You want your grass to be as green as it can (I'll say)
You need the rain feeding your plants/ (I'll say)
We're giving every season a chance/ (I'll say)
Even if it's freezing, there's a breeze and it's damp//

(JND)
The turf might seem a richer shade of emerald there /
But before you make the switch well you better beware /
Can we all admit to thinking that our life is unfair? /
When there's doubt in the air, don't change your route or despair /

Cos it usually isn't, you should be using your wisdom /
Instead of fuelling the negative mood, forever pursuing a victim /
One clue's in the planning, the other is through some persistence /
Clever improving your vision, then you'll be moving the mission / (eh?)

Not tryna say summat you won't know /
You've probably been through it with so-an-so /
Cos life's like a ride on a pogo, unwinding a yo-yo /
Sublime when it's going right, wrong and it's 'oh no!' /

But keep smiling cos while you're still breathing /
And while your heart's beating, the sun is gonna shine for you /
And that's cheesy but that's how I'm feeling /
The yin and yang's needed, rainy days don't make me blue //

(Chorus)
You want your grass to be as green as it can (I'll say)
You need the rain feeding your plants/ (I'll say)
We're giving every season a chance/ (I'll say)
Even if it's freezing, there's a breeze and it's damp//

(Addverse)
Well I've been living on the side of thinkin life is a grind, I'm sick of the 9-5 digging of this grave in my mind,/
I'm ready to flip back the switch and, reboot my hard-drive and activate the present like it's gift wrapped and hard wired,/
They tried to tell me that I can't escape the virus, it's inside us,
and if I break the code
then Id get fired, so I,/
Did it anyway, made the corporate enemy,
And everyday I'm getting better letting off this energy,/
I set it free, you can forget your methodology, I think you'll find you're messing with my recipe and honestly,/
I'd rather skip your policy, politics and office speak, and feel the love cos the fear's attacking the honesty,/
The fact alone that we are star dust and conscious of it, shines a light on what I see so I can spot the monsters on it,/
Cos the matter is this, once an atom exists, it never disappears it stays in the mix,/
So Im gonna live forever if the ether permits, I could be anything from weather to an elephant's hips,/
It's one hell of a trip,
To think that anything is possible,
Elements repeat it's mathematically probable,/
No matter what the obstacle,
Life still happens, if the sun still shines then it lights up the patterns,/
As it's intricately balanced while its spinning on its axis, amazingly placed in a space with no practice,/ (it's life)//

Flame Grillin' since 2 thousand and summat/
Killin' it off, you didn't know? then you're about to discover/
Now here'’s another/
Album for you since our proud introduction/
Before the studio we put our lyrics down in a cupboard/
But...…JND and his Dad came round for a cuppa/
And converted my garage to DubWhy and a mountain of rubble/
And it’'s sounding so good, you come round in the summer/
We got the doors open, beats blazing, and we'’re shoutin' and cussin'/
And callin' it cyphering
If you were from West Yorkshire I would always invite you in/
But times have changed, be a while till Mr Nice again/
…There'’s only so much urine on the toilet floor you can wipe and then/
I had to shut the door, and concentrate on something more/
The reaction to the debut album’'s nothing that I could have saw/
Could have seen, could have anticipated/
Gotta make sure we spread to different places and preach the hip-hop basics/
Step one, keep it real, stop faking/
Step two, sick beats, no 808s and/
Step three, dig crates, takes patience for dope breaks/
A whole day on the same beat’'s not wasted/
Shouts to crate diggers in the charity shops/
Or your sampled vinyl borrowed from Granny and Pops/
You may end up with a copy of Abba a lot/
But there'’ll always be a gem that you’'ll happily chop…...what//

(Chorus)
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
It’'s time to bin the old, get a fresher start/
…It takes time to perfect the art/
Nobody'’s perfect we’'re not trying to suggest we are/
Don'’t take anyone’'s lead unless it’'s XLR/
Stop complaining and just make a fresher start//

(JND)
A fresher start, on some first month of Uni tip /
Fresher than your Nan's best tulips or petunias /
Spring cleaning out your potty mouths with exuberance /
We'll show you how it should be done and dusted in the truest sense /

Of the words, what I'm meaning is I'm Mr Muscle /
Compared to me you some weaker cats too quick to buckle /
A different hustle, while slinging pins to prick your bubble /
I'm taking shots at you from space aboard the distant Hubble /

Yeah..... you been warned, keep off the grass /
I'll turn the coolest hipster to a boxing bag /
Mad Fresh, I keep a toxic mask handy, why? /
Coz I'm tired of your stink filling up my alveoli /

Force the rhyme; I know I mispronounced it /
Say something, I'll come round and kick your house in /
I couldn't care less if Fabreze was your sponsor /
Or you passed the Daz challenge whilst stood in your boxers /
You bought twenty year ago from Managrove /

Y'still aren't passing go /
Not on my watch like Casio /
I'm fresher than a Winter's day in your birthday suit /
These words are proof, mess with me and it's certain doom //

So honestly I’d not be surprised with a charge on oxygen/
...How much does owning an atom of carbon cost again?/
The people in power will always work to fill their pockets up/
Even when we vote them in so they can give us options, but/
Don’t play the game just be the change you want to see/
As long as you’re not hurting anyone F the economy/
To often we look at others and think, "what’s wrong with me?"/
But if we’re all thinking the same thing, that’s just comedy//

(Chorus)
You want your grass to be as green as it can (I'll say)
You need the rain feeding your plants/ (I'll say)
We're giving every season a chance/ (I'll say)
Even if it's freezing, there's a breeze and it's damp//

(JND)
The turf might seem a richer shade of emerald there /
But before you make the switch well you better beware /
Can we all admit to thinking that our life is unfair? /
When there's doubt in the air, don't change your route or despair /

Cos it usually isn't, you should be using your wisdom /
Instead of fuelling the negative mood, forever pursuing a victim /
One clue's in the planning, the other is through some persistence /
Clever improving your vision, then you'll be moving the mission / (eh?)

Not tryna say summat you won't know /
You've probably been through it with so-an-so /
Cos life's like a ride on a pogo, unwinding a yo-yo /
Sublime when it's going right, wrong and it's 'oh no!' /

But keep smiling cos while you're still breathing /
And while your heart's beating, the sun is gonna shine for you /
And that's cheesy but that's how I'm feeling /
The yin and yang's needed, rainy days don't make me blue //

(Chorus)
You want your grass to be as green as it can (I'll say)
You need the rain feeding your plants/ (I'll say)
We're giving every season a chance/ (I'll say)
Even if it's freezing, there's a breeze and it's damp//

(Addverse)
Well I've been living on the side of thinkin life is a grind, I'm sick of the 9-5 digging of this grave in my mind,/
I'm ready to flip back the switch and, reboot my hard-drive and activate the present like it's gift wrapped and hard wired,/
They tried to tell me that I can't escape the virus, it's inside us,
and if I break the code
then Id get fired, so I,/
Did it anyway, made the corporate enemy,
And everyday I'm getting better letting off this energy,/
I set it free, you can forget your methodology, I think you'll find you're messing with my recipe and honestly,/
I'd rather skip your policy, politics and office speak, and feel the love cos the fear's attacking the honesty,/
The fact alone that we are star dust and conscious of it, shines a light on what I see so I can spot the monsters on it,/
Cos the matter is this, once an atom exists, it never disappears it stays in the mix,/
So Im gonna live forever if the ether permits, I could be anything from weather to an elephant's hips,/
It's one hell of a trip,
To think that anything is possible,
Elements repeat it's mathematically probable,/
No matter what the obstacle,
Life still happens, if the sun still shines then it lights up the patterns,/
As it's intricately balanced while its spinning on its axis, amazingly placed in a space with no practice,/ (it's life)//

(Chorus)
You want your grass to be as green as it can (I'll say)
You need the rain feeding your plants/ (I'll say)
We're giving every season a chance/ (I'll say)
Even if it's freezing, there's a breeze and it's damp//
