about

"I started this album in October of 2012 and after three long years of life changing experiences, catharsis, failures, epiphanies, inspirations and mental growth, it has finally come to its conclusion. I make music because it is my escape. I listen to music because it uses our sense of hearing to capture the essence of a time period, tying it in a knot of nostalgia so that we may temporarily bring life into those moments once again when a familiar tune is heard from days past. We associate meaning to what we listen to. It becomes a part of us.

I invite you to let this album play in the background, or during a commute, or a trip, or an afternoon of studying, or a jog, or an evening with friends and family. I want you to listen to it while you observe a wondrous vista, a skyline, a landscape, rain at a window sill, or even just the corner of a room where the light hits the furniture just right. I invite you to associate your own meaning to it and breathe life into it in a way most suitable for you. I hope you enjoy the music."

~ Nafeu Nasir

Track Name: The Last Red Velvet Kiss
Now I know that it hasn't been too long
But no regrets from me for giving you this song

As you can see evidently I'm just a lost soul
Looking for affection
A real connections all I need

And I'm tired of the hate
And I'm tired of the lies
No time for trash talk and fake goodbyes

Listen to me I'll be honest with you (honest with you)
Frankly girl I'm attracted to you (attracted to you)
But can I trust you to accept who I am

It all started at the pool table no fable
I was racked up with enough stress to keep my mind unstable
But I went with you, VIP, can't you see
Billiards shot me off more than a blank pool pocket mystery
Thoughts misleading for me I was confused, refused
Didn't know if you I should choose, if this would be me avoidin the blues
But girl you know I left the clues, more 8-balls, straight hits, stripes solids and cues

That warmth that I felt when I held you close to me
Tellin me I'd be accepted for who I'm s'posed to be
So I coast for free, on these lyrics that I wrote for thee
So can you be that girl that is my she
Please, tell me I ain't just bein a fool (tell me I ain't just being a fool x2)

That warmth that I felt when I held you close to me
Tellin me I'd be accepted for who I'm s'posed to be
So I coast for free, on these lyrics that I wrote for thee
So can you be that girl that is my she
Please, tell me I ain't just bein a fool (tell me I ain't just being a fool x2)
Track Name: Curve Sound (feat. Maria Carmela)
I wondered if I'd ever see you here again
Desire left me waiting way too long

I could use a kiss or two from you right now
Don't make me believe in anything more

Curve sound, wind me down, yeah
A whisper and we're gone (x4)
Track Name: Tell Me (feat. Anika Ahmed)
Tell me did you see it
Tell me did you feel it (Ohh whoa)
Did you ever mean it
Did you ever mean it

Yeah Yeah (x8)

Tell Me, Tell Me, Tell Me, Yeah (x4)

Sometimes you can't go on, loving the one you want
Its easy to lose the game

Sometimes you can't go on, loving the one you want
Its easy to lose the game, yeah its easy to lose it all

Tell me did you see it
Tell me did you feel it
Did you ever mean it
Did you ever mean it
Track Name: Socrates (feat. Coburn)
The wisest man knows nothing
And I don’t plan on vanishing

The wisest man knows nothing
And I don’t plan on vanishing

It’s like searching through kaleidoscopes
This world we know is a placebo

And I can read her disposition, not so sweet it causes fission
In her mission to kill the living, no forgiven because my mind is driven
To beguile the hostile lifestyle you’ve concluded worth while

The trees are growing underwater now
They're hiding from their sons and their daughters

The trees are growing towards the shore
Growing ever taller, ever more

But we search down, down, down, down,
We search down,

Somebody loves you they just don’t know it yet
Just at the lake the light, it wasn’t lit
Track Name: Aside From Loneliness (feat. Maria Carmela)
Nothing, nothing else, nothing (x2)

Aside from loneliness you have nothing else to blame
There is no way to decide which way to go

I'm at a loss for words
I'm at a cross for worlds

Aside from loneliness you have nothing else to blame

Nothing, nothing else, nothing (x2)

Aside from loneliness you have nothing else to blame
There is no way to decide which way to go

I'm at a loss for words
I'm at a cross for worlds

Aside from loneliness you have nothing else to blame

Aside from loneliness you have nothing else to blame
There is no way to decide which way to go

I'm at a loss for words
I'm at a cross for worlds

Aside from loneliness you have nothing else to blame
Track Name: Need You To Stay (feat. Polaris)
Girl I need you to stay (x2)
Please don't leave me this way (x2)

Girl I need you to stay (x2)
Please don't leave me this way (x2)

I need you to stay (...)
Track Name: All The Other Wonders (feat. Maria Carmela)
I wanna be neutral I said now
I wanna be careless I said how
So care now, oh oh

I wanna be sitting before the first steps we took together. Whoa-oh

I wanna be separate in tone, so please don't try
Don't try to blend the colours, Whoa-oh

And I had a life before this all came crawling down my shoulders

And I had a smile inspired by all the other wonders

And I had a smile inspired by all the other wonders

And I had a life before this all came crawling down my shoulders

All the other wonders (x3)
Track Name: Eternity Only Begins Here
Eternity only begins here (begins here)
No flash to bring you back, we're set in stone

Entering a new day
Arriving at the empty space
Controlling a new wave
Open your page and turn

Eternity only begins here (begins here)
No flash to bring you back, we're set in stone

Eternity (x8)

Entering a new day
Arriving at the empty space
Controlling a new wave
Open your page and turn

Eternity only begins here (begins here)
No flash to bring you back, we're set in stone
Track Name: Your Perspective (feat. KnottRudy)
Waiting for a change in your perspective baby
Waiting for a change in your incentive baby
Waiting for a change in your perspective baby yeah
Waiting for a change in your incentive baby

Whoa-yeah yeah (x4)

Waiting for a change in your perspective baby
Waiting for a change in your incentive baby
Track Name: Time Is Secondary
So start again, walk me through halls of comfort gone

Late December fog come over and cover it all yeah
Hazy but its true, I can't get enough of you now

What am I expressing, I feel myself repressing
Care for my confession, I can't help myself but fall in love with you now

Even if it might be temporary
Even if the thought can feel so scary

Floating 'cause my weight you seem to carry
On your shoulders when your words hit me so airy

warm me oh so very
time is secondary
warm me oh so very
time is secondary

warm me oh so very
time is secondary
time is secondary
time is secondary

(x2)
Track Name: Something Useful (feat. Maria Carmela)
I really gotta say it
I really gotta whisper to ya, boy

I really gotta hold you close and
I really gotta kiss you further

You got me caught in something useful (x8)

Lots of things I realize, washing through my very eyes
Feelings are so synthesized, levitating hips and thighs

Lots of things I realize, far away from my demise
Hush away all of the cries, inside me

Keep this lucid dream going (x4)
Track Name: Rhino (feat. Coburn & Maria Carmela)
Truth is I can't be every guy, and you can't be just one girl
And you killed us in cold blood and I'll stop driving so slow now slow now

Fuck the extended metaphors, and pretty words filled with a kiss
There is a truth you need to know, I'm not dead, we're dead

Don't look at me, you've got the smoke cocked gun
Don't look at me, you've got the smoke cocked gun

Truth is I can't be every guy, and you can't be just one girl
And you killed us in cold blood and I'll stop driving so slow now slow now

Remember the night you turned your back on me
Remember the night you said I've never loved
I've never felt uglier than the day that I fell for you
But I'm a coward and I'm afraid you may be right

How cliche that it rained, I died of restlessness
And I wish I could tell you, I'm a child and I'm crying for attention

I wish you could see how much I love to hate you, as you know I can't
I wish you could see how much I love to hate you, as you know I can't
I wish you could see how much I love to hate you, as you know I can't
I wish you could see how much I love to hate you, as you know I can't
Track Name: Small Scale Walls (feat. Maria Carmela)
Don't stop now you're holding me (x4)

Don't stop now you're holding me
Maximize the feeling everyday
Don't stop now you're holding me
Maximize the feeling everyday

And you needed me
To be there every second of the way
But what you can't see
The shoulder that you lean on fades away

Behind these, small scale walls
Behind these, small scale walls that you built

Do they protect you?
Do they protect you?
The small scale walls that you built

This coziness is temporary
Infatuated its necessary
This coziness is temporary
This hesitance is hard to carry

Small scale, small scale walls that you built (x2)
Track Name: Minutia
Love, love
Love, love

The moment when I breathe you in
Love, love, love it when you exhale baby

Love, the moment when I breathe you in
Love, love it when you exhale baby

I love it when our lips touch, the moment when I breathe you in
Love it when you exhale baby

I love it when you exhale, the way it feels on my skin
Love it when you exhale baby

I love it when our lips touch, the moment when I breathe you in
Love it when you exhale baby

I love it when you exhale, the way it feels on my skin
On my skin

I love it when our lips touch, the moment when I breathe you in
Love it when you exhale baby

I love it when you exhale, the way it feels on my skin
On my skin

(...)
Track Name: Reinvented By Silence (feat. Maria Carmela)
Break down the palace doors
Spread across the marble floors

Break down the palace doors

In this titled world, straighten the frame
In this titled world

Black noise and silence
Black noise

Black noise and silence
Black noise

I'm paralyzed, paralyzed, paralyzed
I'm paralyzed, paralyzed, paralyzed

Reinvented by silence, recreated once again
Once again, once again
