Written for the ‘Social Contract me Baby’ Album

Shake the Tree (trust the future)

Let the wind blow

Let it be what it will be

I must trust the future

For my ideas are free

 

Spread my wings

keeping it good

Spread my fingers

in the woods

 

The beating of my heart

The air that I breath

being me is so easy

it is not an exact science

 

The right thing will come

that I need for me

In no particular order

I will let go

 

Let the wind Blow

Let it be what it will be

I must trust the future

For my ideas are free

 

Spread my wings

keeping it good

Spread my wings

in the woods

 

What the mind my sow

this delicate feeling

Rhyme of reason

for all things we believe

 

It can be done

We can be one

 

Let the wind Blow

Let it be what it will be

I must trust the future

For my ideas are free

Spread my wings

keeping it good

Spread my wings

inwards

 

(spoken)

Just few things left to stand out in this

Get on up / Step into the Light (Lyrics)

Get on up / step into the light

Written by Cousin Lee released on ‘Social Contract Me’ 2015 featuring Pinky B

 

Modern politics is such a bore

Give me someone who says what they feel

World economics disempowers me

Got to vote for some one who is 500 hundred miles from me

 

Get on up

Get up

Get on up

Get up

I am so dazed confused

The rain falls mainly on the poor

 

Social Democracy

I wanted it contracted

wake up and feel my rights

not to complicated

 

Show me where my taxes go

Work for indifference

Protection from whom

Something worth protecting

 

Get on up

Get up

Get on up

Get up

Heading for the light

The rain falls mainly on the plain

 

Bureaucratic in office

Says were not any economic centre

What should be taught to my child

reason for things to love

disempowerment I was taught

The need for social security

Personal relationships

Of uninspired lives

 

Get on up

Get up

Get on up

Get up

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

 

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

 

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

 

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

This song was recorded in Augusts in September 2013 in Gypo's Buggane studio.  The song idea dates back about 15 years ago when I was playing in grunge band in the Netherlands we used it as an intro to a song called fake.  I think the idea behind that song is exploring ideas and becoming engaged in events that surround you. Of course it is perspective. However when one is younger it is possible to feel very uninspired and that change for the better is a hopeless goal. This is not so.

Pre recording we did a number of sessions with Gypo where ideas were thrown against a wall to see what would stick. I had an acoustic demo but substantial rewrote the song and recorded the drum that you hear on the finished version. Gypo took that demo and really reworked it using Pro tools, not only adding trumpets unbeknown to me that he could play himself but also really applying years of knowledge and understanding. He was stickle for the rhythm where I have tendency to let things be very loose he made it tight which is what any dance track needs and took the track to whole new level. While the track is political motivated it was also the point to make something that was danceable uplifting and seductive. We start off at a dark place and move to the light. One can hear that each chorus is progressing somewhere. Pinky B provided the Vocals for this track. In her first studio performance and after much persuasion she put a vocal that required little or no effects and was pretty much spot on.
