Alabama Shakes – Sound & Color

OVER MY HEAD-Alabama Shakes
I’m in over my head
I don’t think of you in bits and pieces
I think of you only like a miracle
Loved him so deeply
I feel it through all my past lives
It feels good, I’m never saying goodbye
It feels good, I’m never saying goodbye
(I’m in over my head, over my head)
(I’m in over my head, over my head)
Signs, they explain it to me
There’s no joy I can take with no one worth waiting
Here for now, but not for long
When will my mind slip away, explain that to me
(I’m in over my head)
Loving so deeply, I’m in over my head

Ibeyi – Ibeyi

RIVER – Ibeyi
Carry away my dead leaves
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Sink my pains and complains
Let the river take them, river drown them
My ego and my blame
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Those all means are so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them
Come to your river
I will come to your river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again

Ghostface Killa & BADBADNOTGOOD – Sour Soul

SOUR SOUL – Ghostface Killa & BADBADNOTGOOD
Yo, cleanse me, cleanse me of my sour soul, I’m vicious
My mind races from the satellite dishes
No technology, this world’s corrupt
They Can’t feed my food for thought, I won’t budge
I’m a twisted individual they say critical
I say “Nigga I’m on top of my pinnacle”
Chest boards and swords, alphabetical darts
FOOD – Ghostface Killa & BADBADNOTGOOD
Them light as the sun, the sun’s the father
The father is the man on Earth, we try harder
To teach one, preach one
Just acknowledge the wisdom
Can’t figure right form wrong, it’s a tough decision
My vision is light, some come to me when yours black out
Follow the footprints as I lay the tracks out
He’s a righteous God, I want the best for mankind
Navigate through this war without blowing a landline
My light shines from the East my brother
Verbally I spit, I’m a beast my brother
March through the blackness, search for the ray of lights
Don’t walk barefooted through the grass
Cause that’s where the snake strikes
Proteck ya neck, evil lurks in the shadows
Darkness is best where the Devil wins battles
The weak fall victim, the strong sound diligent
Guerilla, we gullible but manage to stay militant
Super stars, our ego is so top billin’ it
Follow me son and I’ll show you how I’m killin’ it
These wolves is vicious, assigned to danger
The changer, I’m bout to pull you all through the chamber
