about

Once upon a time in the city of Avalondon, all was well and wild.

A gentle metropolis, sprawled on powerful leylines, Avalondon was adorned with a cosmic triple threat:

Lush greenery, a pristine river and a unique medley of Individuals; ripe conditions for beauty, love and Art to flourish.

Music perfumed the air! Dance ruled the streets!

Every other human was an artisan and Life was a pleasing ritual that nourished both land and PEOPLE...

..and oh, the people!

Electric parades of colour and zest, from North, South, East and West,
rushed in like serotonin to Avalondon’s sweet head.

Turned on by the the glistening scent of her creative juice and magical allure, they came, spread seed, lay roots and were heartily received by the Natives.

“The more we share, the more there is to share”

And thus mingled a thousand flavours. One city. Indivisible under G.O.D

Poetry baptised the night! Art electrified the aisles!

Until the deadly day, a bestial enemy arose from within armen with an axe, a plan and a box.

"Nobody saw it coming…

...for if they had, the horror would have surely been aborted.

A tragedy that grew and grew, alone, in an oily room.

No one saw him coming...

...and by the time he was close enough to name, Dr Stu O. Tauq had unleashed an epic nightmare from which no one could escape."

Scarring and grotesque “GrImBoXeS” were abruptly assigned to each “Citizen”. This culled creatives for a time but proved costly.

A solution finale was found (“Yes! We shall have them consume themselves!)-the sickening "Jetabolsi X virus" was disseminated and a heaving cloud of doom choked the city and the sand grains fell.

The Avalondoners grovelled for Death to free them from the excruciating tyranny but were granted no such relief for even she had her Price now.

Then faintly on the horizon, a mystery appeared. A smudge at first, then a bold lightening smear daubed across the river...

Slowly drawing nearer until the illusion evolved into a Moon white vessel draped with golden blue gossamer sails and a flag that bore an Anarchy sign melded to an Ahnk symbol.

The ship of P.I.R.A.T.E Rose. An intergalactic rebel, with a cause, a guitar but no clothes...

to be continued...

Track Name: The Price of The Ticket
The Price of the Ticket

Verse 1
Here lies the tail of two alluding worlds:

One is BEING, one is, you do as you are told
Know the roads to toe
Know your role
And it’s easy you say
So live your life to this

Chorus
Oh God, the price,
the price, the price of the ticket
Oh no, no no the toll of these dreams

Verse 2
Since I recall I never feel at home
Have I seen it, do I know
The smell of rhino?
Or the baobab shade?
I’ve paid the price

Mid section
JAMES BALDWIN

All the pieces fall in situ
And a vision..

Chorus+outro
Oh god the price, the price
The price of the ticket
Oh no, no no the toll of these dreams
I’ve paid. I’ve paid

Coz that’s what destiny means to me
That’s what destiny means to me
And boy, do you know the price I’ve paid?
And what of the plans we made babe?

(I had plans with my boy, goals with my boy)
Oh baby…
Track Name: Good Look
Good Look

Verse1
Early morning I see it bluish-green
I feel the timing
Early morning I vow to synchronicity
The dreamer of the dream

Chorus
And with this high, what means more
Than anything I do to keep a good look on your face?
In all this time together, what means more
Than anything I do to keep a good on you?

Verse 2
Early morning and I see it for what it is
I feel let down, passed blue
Early morning, new moon
I want more…
Green come and fuel my shift
To a new high in my body

Chorus 2
I’m high
I want more of everything you do
To keep a good look on my face

Mid section
Boy you know I really want you to come in, come in me
And I know it’s wrong to want you like I want you
But I do, I do, I do

Verse 3
Early morning I feel your arms around my neck
I turn around and I turned around and I
Took a good look at your face

Space Drop
And I saw f.e.a.r
I heard you scream
But I…I…I need more time

Last chorus
Time, forever
Time to do anything I want to for you
Come here
Early in the morning
Track Name: Saturn
Saturn

Eh!, Eh! Eh!

Verse 1

Feeling Sweet uneasy on the edge of myself
I find I switch so easy these days
I feel it creep up on me in waves
It’s heavy, heavy

You slide in my Dm’s I clock your avatar
I scroll away, too easy. I’m getting harder
By the day. Beast mode is on
I’m too far gone to love you now

Chorus

Since that day, that day
Don’t wanna be laid up no,
I’d rather stay paid up
Since that pain I felt
Don’t wanna be laid up
I’d rather stay, stay paid up, paid up, paid up, paid up….
Saturn, Saturn

Verse 2

Grinding for that money, yeah I’m wrecking my health
I’m so one track minded these days
I feel the weight of Saturn, dem rings, dem rings
So heavy, I swear

You slide in my inbox I flick the screen
No more time for your wiles,
I’m chasing evergreen. Beast mode is on
I’m too far gone to love you now

Chorus

Since that day, that day
Don’t wanna be laid up no,
I’d rather stay paid up
Since that pain I felt
Don’t wanna be laid up
I’d rather stay, stay paid up, paid up, paid up…. Saturn
Track Name: Beyond The Sea
Beyond the sea

Verse 1
Strangely calm
Pain disarmed
No alarms, no sirens
Only Ocean...only Ocean

Love has gone
On too long
So I’m not your girl?
Ship in motion...Ship in motion

Pre Chorus
You say it’s been
The best year of your life
I know it’s true
I’m glad you’re good
Now I’ll go
While I am warm
With all this Ocean
Between all my feelings
For you and the wreck of our destiny

Chorus
Beyond the sea, beyond the sea
Beyond the sea, beyond the sea

Verse 2
I never see you
These days
I miss your face
Oh, it’s been a while
My ship’s in motion

My soul is easy
I’m out at sea
I know I was your life’s
Only Ocean. Only Ocean
Only Ocean

Pre chorus
You say, with me
This year? The best of your life!
I know you’re right
I was your light
So now why am I gone?
Why are you alone?
It just feels so wrong
What a wreck of a destiny

Chorus
Beyond the sea
Beyond the sea, beyond the sea

Verse 3
Your answer’s too late
Boy my ship’s in motion
My heart hurts
I won’t fight to make you mine
I’m the ocean
Your only Ocean

Outro
Only O-
Only O-

Track Name: LDN BBY
LDN BBY

Intro

It’s a LDN thing, it’s a LDN thing

Bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-rum-pum,… X 4
Bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-doo

Verse 2
Bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-doo
Oh those tube doors close in my face.
Bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-doo
I’m holding all my woes inn place

I’m up and down, round and round
All with 9 million souls

Chorus
This is LDN BBY
Anything goes
In LDN BBY
Anything and everything goes

Verse 2
Yeah Bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-doo
Weed in the cracks
Ah, bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-doo
Mama nature’s fighting back

In Peckham park, after dark
Where the crows and the foxes lark

Chorus 2
Inna, inner LDN BBY
Anything goes
In LDN BBY
Anything and everything goes

Middle section

I wonder through each chartered street
(ooooh, Ju ju, ju ju..)
Near where the chartered Thames does flow
(oooh, city, city…)
And mark in Every face I meet
Marks of weakness
(did you know your Queen is a reptile?
Marks of woe
(it’s hard core, but it’s all I know)
In every choir of every man
(every postcode send a girl)
The mind forged manacles I hear

(Ju ju, did you know your city is alive?)
Through midnight Streets I hear
How the youthful Harlots curse
Runs in Blood down Palace walls

Verse 3
Fam, come bubble!
Kudos to those feet
Bum, bubble lip-a limp, bi-rim-bim-bi-doo
Come reclaim your streets

There’s Springs and ley lines
Deep down Skull dug
Revolution! Rebellion!
Original pirate material you’re listening to the streets of…

Final Chorus

LDN BBY anything goes
LDN BBY anything and everything’s in
LDN BBY anything goes in
LDN BBY anything and everything goes
It goes, it goes, there it goes…...
