about

Wintertape 1 is the first in a run of albums which are released every Boxing Day. Each year Wintertape acts as an outlet for any noteworthy recordings I've made that didn't make it onto other projects.

Recorded between 2011 and 2012.

Track Name: Becoming Nocturnal
Chains untied
Sleepless night
Time gets tired
Receding light
Out of sight
One red light
Spirit sleeps
Daylight comes
Storm's outside
Every night
I feel it come near, I become nocturnal

Feel it shape me (I become)
Feel it take me (I become)
Feel it break me
I become nocturnal

I feel it come near, I become nocturnal
Track Name: Billie Jean (feat. Joe O'Neill)
Verse:
She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round (Here we go again)
Who will dance on the floor in the round

She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

Bridge:
People always told me be careful of what you do
And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do 'cause the lie becomes the truth

Chorus:
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son
She says I am the one

And we dance on the floor in the round (She says I am the one)
And we dance on the floor in the round

Chuck D:
Bass, How low can you go?
Death row, what a brother know
Once again, back is the incredible
The rhyme animal
The incredible D, Public Enemy number one
Five-O said, "Freeze!" and I got numb
Can I tell 'em that I really never had a gun?
But it's the wax that the Terminator X spun
Now they got me in a cell 'cause my records, they sell
'Cause a brother like me said, "Well, Frarrakhan's a prophet and I think you ought to listen to
What he can say to you, what you ought to do is
Follow for now, power of the people, say,
"Make a miracle, D, pump the lyrical"
Black is back, all in, we're gonna win
Check it out, yeah y'all c'mon, here we go again


Bridge:
People always told me be careful of what you do
And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
So she came and stood right by me
Then the smell of sweet perfume
This happened much too soon
She called me to her room

Chorus:
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
Track Name: All Of My Life
All of my life x6

On the count of three, everybody run back to your fantasy

All of my life I felt that you were listening (Go, go, go, go, go)
Watching for ways to help me stay in tune (Go, go, go)
All of my life I felt that you were listening, listening
Watching for ways to help me stay in tune
On the count of three, everybody run back to your fantasy

This is a man's world (Go, go, go, go, go)
This is a man's world (Go, go, go, go, go)
A Man makes them happy
This is a man's world

But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing
But it wouldn't be nothing
Without a woman or a girl
Nothing (Go, go, go, go)
Nothing (Go, go)
This is a man's world
Nothing
Everything he can
This is a man's world
Nothing, nothing
Everything he can (Go, go, go, go)
This is a man's world (Go, go, go, go)
This a man's world
This a man's world
Man make them happy
This is a man's world
Everything he can

On the count of three, everybody run back to your fantasy
Track Name: Secrets
Verse 1:
Why are the doors still open?
Why do they keep on hoping?
Why not enjoy themselves instead?
I think you're all so funny
I've got my pocket money
I wanna go into the town
I'm just so nervous today
I'm acting in the play
When I just wanna go back home instead
I'm jealous of my friends who get the things I want before I do

Chorus:
So tell me all your secrets
I promise not to tell
But if you don't just let it out
Tomorrow it'll be gone
And ask me what I'm thinking
I have nothing to hide
I just don't wanna keep it all inside

Verse 2:
What have I gotten into?
I pray to God to save my life
But then tomorrow it's alright
Could I go home with you?
It will be warm when we're inside
I'm just not ready to go home
I wanna tell you something:
I've got this fear inside me
I've got this will to carry on
If you are willing with me
We'll finish up with something
Look, just relax and we'll be done

Chorus:
Tell me all your secrets
I promise not to tell
But if you don't just let it out
Tomorrow it'll be gone
And ask me what I'm thinking
I have nothing to hide
I just don't wanna keep it all inside

So tell me all your secrets
I promise not to tell
But if you don't just let it out
Tomorrow it'll be gone
And ask me what I'm thinking
I have nothing to hide
I just don't wanna keep it all inside
