Track Name: Nothing
Yeah, yeah
This is shamanix
Right here tonight, I'm going to tell you a story about nothing

(N-n-nothing is everything)

From the beginning to the end
From the bottom to the top
When there's nothing left, this is what you got

Verse 1:

I made you sick but you're better off dead
so I can resurrect ya with the ink from my pen
it's funny to think you only live on paper
eating money for lunch but I'm still hungry like bums
stomach grumbling for something that means something
so I can eat something other than crumbs
so I can breathe something into these smothering lungs
I need to see something other than these meaningless sums
so I can relieve the struggle to be something
other than the beast that comes
from beneath when I can't feed myself like a feign on drugs
I need to speak something that means something
deep like in mother tongues
something other than this nothing you keep flinging at me like dung
id rather be a grunt slinging mud than live in the slums
of my mind thinking there's something other than love
doing grunt work make my back hurt
but at least I'm still rich in my blood rich like the mud
planting seeds from fantasies to dreams to something
real that comes from the nothing you're giving me
and that’s everything from nothing you see
and now there's nothing left

Chorus:

The day that you die
There's nothing to hide
You rise through the sky
And look in God's eye to see
Nothing at all

N-n-nothing is everything

The day that you die
There's nothing to hide
You rise through the sky
And look in God's eye to find
Nothing but love

N-n-nothing is everything

Verse 2:

Everything is nothing but that’s still nothing you see
if nothing is everything then nothing ain't what it seems
awake from the dream its coming like prophecies
there's nothing new under the sun but I'm still hunting
for something true under the sun
that means something other than nothing
life is what you make it
unmask the makeup blast the birthday cake up
good for nothing but fuck it
unwrap this something or other everything in kick the bucket list
oh you suck at this life's a bitch and she rapes you like a mother fucker
still trucking still got my nuts to tuck
but ya tell me I'm good for nothing
say something, growing the garden of dreams
mark my territory pile of shit chew on this talking stick yellow spit
it's your turn to speak but the speech means nothing
unless you got something beneath the fronting you keep clutching
you're gonna get whats coming to ya
there's no escaping nothing so its now or never this or nothing

Chorus

Verse 3:

you're either dead or you ascend, same as nothing
you're coffin's gotta wingspread that’s better than nothing
ya got something but youre doing nothing
when it takes everything the stakes all or nothing you see
everything is nothing so if ya got nothing to lose
put your truth on the table
something that means everything to you
now that’s something here goes nothing…

Chorus

Deep in my heart
there's nothing at all
N-n-nothing is everything
Deep in my heart
there's nothing but love
N-n-nothing is everything
Track Name: Warriors
Intro:

There's a war going on.. but it's not a physical war.

This is a war for control of your mind, your thoughts, what you believe in, who you think you are, the decisions you make in life.

This is a war that is fought in multiple-dimensions simultaneously… it's all around you, in everything you do, everywhere you go, and it's deep inside you.

It's a battle for your soul, a battle for your sanity. This is a war of spirit…


Verse 1:

I climb the world tree axis mundi
like a space monkey monkey mind
you find me wherever you go
like space and time
speed up the pace of the rhyme
leave the rat race behind
in a race to find gates divine
make haste theres no time
to waste outside space like einstein
the stakes are high
like empire state (states)
building states of mind like architects
brave like Jason and the argonauts
marching on like an army of god
unite the earth and sky like a lightning rod
channeling light walking free
like a vagabond with no shackles on
bareback like a native chief
we riding on

>> ICARO

Chorus:

We look into the next dimension
Moving through space and time
We warriors, we warriors, until the day we die
(that's right)

Verse 2:

on the path no matter whats going on
we battle on hear the war drum
pound the ground in your chest
like a stampede amplify the heartbeat
prepare to meet the king of the deep
undefeated like a paragon
half man half beast like a matador
sound the bull horn invoke the warlords
guardians at the four doors
angelic sworn swords
I summon impenetrable wards
warding off whatever attempts
to come against us with discord
fully armored like a well defended fort
fortified on all four sides plus the earth and sky
we're commanding immortal resources
they wanna do something they can't
but they can damn sure try

>> ICARO

Chorus 2x


So who are you really fighting?

Who are the enemies on the battlefield?

And when it comes down to the last man standing, whose face do you seen in the mirror?

Whose life do you see laying besides you?

And when it's all done, you can put the warrior to rest, and go home to your loved ones.


Chorus 2x

(Until the day we die)
Track Name: Reincarnation
Chorus:

I'm seeing my life, my life
All the confusion is gone
I am a long way from home
Reincarnation

Verse 1:

Since birth
I've been in a constant search
in a constantly changing universe
after rounds and rounds of birth and rebirth
its like who needs a church when you’ve got the earth
sky conjurer spread the dirt and disperse
among the people first from the womb they nurse
listening to her sing the songs that soothe the hurt
and we choose our turn cuz it soothes the yearn
nothing left to do but learn what suits the purpose we serve
ready to made head with birth of all life in the purse
enlightenment first lighting the pipe with a messenger
who sends five men to give lessons to churn
in a maloca a shaman administers
a potion in a sacred urn he motions that its your turn
To drink the ocean outside body floating
time folding and unfolding in a single moment
frozen in time I see the mind exposed
like a flash of light captured
usurp the past flash forward one more turn
the wheel in the sky fire bird from the ashes you rise
one more time times up the great gig in the sky
born again but not ready to die

Chorus:

I see the mirror, mirror
All the delusion is gone
I am a long way from home
Reincarnation

I'm seeing my life, my life
All the confusion is gone
I am a long way from home
Reincarnation

Verse 2:

I began ritual invocation for medication
and nows its beginning to set it in
I’ve been patient gazing
at the canvas and the hand the paints it
will it let ya in will you let ya be so to see
what prophecies are seen when you've enter the stream
no less than seven left youve come believe
this is just one of many occupancies
its your time sit upon a rock until you see
one to none back to one breaking bread with some
breaking backs in search of the sum
of the way to one the way to none and back again you see
whatever your life seems it wont be
youve entered the stream and cant help but begin to see
remembering the dreams of your life on a rock at sea
stormy weather creates the last memory
until death you continue on the path to be free
six lives five four three two lives times the death of each
until theres one left theres one death
now take a breath
you got one more life to live on this earth breast
this is the trek the vision quest born in the nest
it might be best cuz it’s the worst for the rest
theres no rest your restless in this life before you lost the freshness
of your last life in west this is the first and last test
whats next is whats left and whats left is right
whats right is right now
right now your last life

Chorus:

I see the mirror, mirror
All the delusion is gone
I am a long way from home
Reincarnation

I'm seeing my life, my life
All the confusion is gone
I am a long way from home
Reincarnation

(I'm a long way from home)
Track Name: Shamanix Beatdowns
Intro:

Yo most of these rappers
Just keep getting whacker and whacker
disposable like candy wrappers
exposing the phonies like thoroughbreds to ponies
they're mirco-phonies

I wanna be clear that im here to drop realness
like nuclear bombs dropped out my moms when I popped (it’s a boy)
and now that ive got undivided attention
your invited to a (shamanix beatdown)


Verse 1:

first things first im laying the groundwork like a grappler
with alligator tactics im hunting these whack rappers
im hungry to eat you like cattle who cant see
what lurks beneath the hand that feeds you
and now your defeated before you even knew
there was a battle this isnt personal its universal
like the speed your heart beats when a rattlesnake
shakes its death rattle I cant help myself for calling out
the prattle that keeps coming out your mouth
you think its spit but its just dribble and drabble
and if this rattles your cage you’re the one im calling out
it doest matter to me the perceived clout
or pedigrees that you tout or how loud
your grit your teeth scream and shout
like a feign I need something with substance
or its just more of the same nothing your uttering
that lacks meaning like stuttering (stuttering)

Chorus:

We handing out
We handing out
We handing out shamanix beatdowns

Verse 2:

Eh yo
I express from deep in my chest
serious like cardiac arrest this is not a test
I get the impression that most of these cats
who spit spat on are only interested
in whats connected to their necklaces
perpetuating the negligence and enslavement
mental states like peasants
they might have bank but their lacking investment
in significant measures
my lessons manifest in sentences
no room for stupid punch lines
im out of my mind like tyler durden
close the curtains its gonna get buck wild for certain
tuck your tail and hold your skirts protect your intestines
I'm coming for you with the truth gutting
until there's nothing left no questions (um, excuse me, what did he say?)

>>> ICARO

Chorus 4x
Track Name: Hey You
Intro:

I am only as strong as I am open
my heart has no boundaries
I open to you as the sea opens to the ship
love is the wind
the strength of our sail is the strength of our commitment
the destination is nowhere
but the journey is eternal
take this journey with me

Verse 1:

hey you
when I first saw you I knew
without a shadow of a doubt
like a cloudless sky all blue
how you moved me with the way you move
from a place where I
didn’t know what to do and now I do
that’s her shes the one with two
delicate eyes all blue
like a baby bird so cute
it still blows my mind how you
body soft but so strong on the inside
the strongest I ever had the pleasure to know you --
changed my world in word yes I do
express my gratitude for all the little things you do
the way you care for me unlike anybody and you
know that’s true because you got me too
deep on the inside in the special place
where only you and I go to…

Chorus 2x:

I wouldn't be nothing
I wouldn't have nothing if it wasn’t for you

Verse 2:

hey you
will you dance with me
in the sand no shoes
the way the ocean dances with the moon
emotional lost in the ocean that is you
soothing me like a queen you
rose to meet me in the dream I had of you
now I see the truth illuminated
by the full moon in june
summer night sommer white sand
jamaican beach its me and you
moving in harmony
it's our time to be best friends
in love with your everything
it’s the best thing
first impression that’s her shes the one
blessed in the medicine
beyond conception divine feminine
it's true the way I feel for you
you’re a queen to me my one and only
sweet like a summer dream
come true in life with your as my wife

Chorus 2x with ICARO

Hey you
Hey you
Yes I do
Hey you
will you dance with me in the sand no shoes
hey you
your'e a queen to me
my one and only

Chorus 2x with ICARO
