about

"I am a state of BEING
Seeing the sweet streets from a birds-eye view
Giving a TWEET or two along the way
Coming back to earth making a SPARK IN THE DUST
Knowing that mothers LOVE HANDLES us
This helps me SLEEP TIGHT at night
Right after lights out before BEING REMIXED
In the kitchen sink."

- Millington

Track Name: Being
"I look into your eyes and see your heart
feel exactly who you are before we start
That first breath of yours took mine away
As i held you in my hands i felt that you
were warm like the suns rays
Ok, yeah we've just met
I know, I know, I know
There's no pressure to impress ya
From your angle of view i feel you felt it too
Baby you lifted me up over life wall
Feels like I've know you before"

"And i feel it all...."

"We'll jump right in
Go swimming with the fishes
Search too see where your bliss is
And talk in whispers
If happiness is just dreaming
Your a BEING i believe in
Through the storm a blue sky was born"

"And i feel it all..."

"Ahhh ah ah ah Ehhh eh eh eh eh"
"Ahhh ah ah ah Oh Oh"

"We'll feel it all...."
Track Name: Tweet
I was singing sweetly, singing sweetly at the top of the tree
Like the tweety bird i wanna be
Flew to the roof across the street and i took in the view
Its an urban zoo out there
Its got its cultures and its charms
Shifty character setting off all the car alarms
Over the noise i notice a little worm poking out of the ground
So i swooped on down

Then i came the seagulls
Looking for a ruckus
Musta see the worm there
Could take em on but they never fight fair. Yeah.

So i grab a hold of the worm and then i pulled him out
As the gulls started to squark and shout
I saw them coming straight at me
So i flow away as high as my little wings would let me
They were gonna be hard to out run
So i flew on higher
Got blinded by the sun
And down i spun
They were still on my tail
Thought to myself should i drop this worm and bail
But then i had an idea

So i flew into a garden
Pardon me I'm coming through
Sorry about the entrance
I didn't mean to disturb you barbacue

Ha i said , "So what you gonna do know fish breathe?"
And at the sight of these two legged mammals in sandals they turned
And flew away
I laughed like a little girl
Gobbled the worm and thought oh what a world

It got a little late out so i flew on home
I flew on home to get some rest
I thought about my babies
My babies back at the nest, hmm um.
Started to feel a little sad as the clouds came over all gloomy and grey
Then i thought about tomorrow cause tomorrows a brand new day

Then i want singing…

Track Name: Spark in the Dust
"Sometimes just to make a start is enough
Rub two sticks together and make a Spark in the Dust
The heat makes ya cheeks burn orange
And helps you keep and hold onto all your promises."

"Ayup Ayup Hooroo"
"Ayup Ayup Hooroo"

"Owoooo Howl the Wolves
In the light of the moon and this fire"

"Yeeeaw"

"Haayi yell the men
In sight of these beasts
Who are soon to inspire
Unwire us out of the dark"

"Sometimes just to make a start is enough
Rub two sticks together and make a Spark in the Dust
The heat makes ya cheeks burn orange
And helps you keep and hold onto all your promises."

"Ayup Ayup Hooroo"
"Ayup Ayup Hooroo"

"Sometimes just to make a start is enough
Rub two sticks together and make a Spark in the Dust."
Track Name: Love Handles
I love love handles
Super calories fragilistic sang Julie Andrews
With a spoon full of sugar oh yes thank you
But throw away the spoon instead I'll grab a handful
Dismantle the public eye status quo
Ya know its true the media told you so

So love love handles
There here to make a big example
Love love
No tight fits, flat hips or fake plastic tits
love love handles
There here to make a big example
love love

Zoo da Bap Zoo da Bap Bap Zoo da
Zoo da Bap

Theres a trashy magazine on the floor
So i turn to page three
Sorry mister editor I've got to disagree
Along with these head lies and bull shit articles
These slender ladies their just well formed molecules
Its hard to cue the ego
Too much bling and rings
And socially modified miracle grow
Although ya size zero looks a bit wacky
So here have a safety pin
The wrapper looks nicer than the sweety that its wrapping which i why I'm here babbling in a head lock grappling just trying to make sense of what actually happening.

So love love handles
There here to make a big example
Love love
No tight fits, flat hips or fake plastic tits
love love handles
There here to make a big example
love love

Zoo da Bap Zoo da Bap Bap Zoo da bap
Zoo da Bap Bap Zoo da Bap, Zoo da Bap Bap
Yeah

Ooooh oooohhhh

Zoo do do Da
Zoo do do Da….
Track Name: Sleep Tight
Sleep tight
Don't let the bed bugs bite ya
On your nose and your toes and the back of ya knees and your ear lobes.
Your exposed
Your head cradled by the pillow
A breeze comes through the window
And blows your hair as i just stare.

I'll drift off with you to dreamland soon
Oh I'll drift off with you to dreamland soon.
Oh oh oh….

My sub conscience sees
A lighting bult strike a tree
And all the big bright branches are hanging
Down over me
And all the people gather around and agree
Its some kinda cosmic recipe
Trying to convey a message to me

As I…

Drift off with you to dreamland soon
I'll drift off with you to dreamland soon
Take it again
I'll drift off with you to dreamland soon
One more time
I'll drift off with you to dreamland soon
Oh Oh Oh…
