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

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

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

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

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.
