BEAT INSIDE MY SOUL
Find that funky feeling deep inside your soul
That’s the beat you can’t deny — release it after all
Catch that funky rhythm pumping thru your vein
When the groove is on the move, you cannot stay the same

Chorus:
That’s the beat inside my soul
That’s the groove I can’t control
That’s the beat inside my soul
That’s the groove I can’t control
That’s the beat inside my soul
That’s the groove I can’t control
That’s FUNK!

That’s a kind of fever coming from inside
You can feel it in your chest when bass and drums collide
Throw back all your worries, float down with the beat
Nothing can embarrass you while funky breaks repeat

At first you have to learn the past before you go ahead
Know the roots
Make ‘em all reunited
‘Cause knowledge is the only way to free your head

SOUL SYSTEM
Build up something genuine and daring
It’s so easy to begin
Build up something extraordinary
Just to show the things unseen

Free your soul now just to be connected
To the rhythm of your life
There’s no chance to stay unaffected
When the system gets overdrive

Chorus:
It’s like a soul system
You give me yours
I give you mine
Changin’ all the time


Let your heart be kinda power station
Generating love around
Let it move in permanent rotation
Breaking every single bound

Let’s get started — there’s no time to wallow
On the laurels of the past
Free your mind and your ass will follow
Don’t you worry ‘bout the rest

PUT THE LIGHTS DOWN LOW

It’s so strange to feel your absence
When I need you most of all
You have left to find the answers
I am here to bear my fault

I’ve got so much time for waiting
But we got to ask ourselves
What’s the use of contemplating
As for me, it makes no sense

Chorus:
In my mind I cut the distance
Time accelerates its flow
That excuses my existence
But my feelings got too slow
So I put the lights down low
I put the lights down low


There’s no chance to win a battle
Seeing things we’ve said and done
There’re two sides to every medal
Got to see the other one.

YOU DON'T KNOW
You don't know what is trouble every day
You don't know what it means to lose your way
You're among your first world problems
That you could easily delay

You don't know how to manage on your own
You don't know how to live your life alone
You've been spoiled and pampered baby
Since the day that you were born

Chorus:
But when your joy depends
On pain of someone else
You just don’t get it right
You just can’t get it right
Because my freedom ends
When someone ties my hands
It’s time to get it right
It’s time to get it… get it on


Let me know when your games come to an end
Let me know when you try to understand
That the real size of your ego
Is smaller than a grain of sand




Тексты песен с альбома 'Like a Supernova' (2015)

 
JUST GIVIT TO ME
Take this thang as natural — I'm restless
Funky music makes me goin' crazy
Lights so bright and bass so tight on the dancefloor
Turn it up 'cause crowd is screaming for more

No cheat, no fun — just celebration
I can't resist funkyfication
No fear, no jive — just excitation
Cause I'm tonight
Just like dynamite

Givit to me
I said givit to me
Just givit to me that groove

Get the rush inside your heart — amazing
Funky beats will make you goin' crazy
Catch the rhythm inside your heart on the dancefloor
Burn it up 'cause crowd is screaming for more

No cheat, no fun — just celebration
I can't resist funkyfication
No fear, no jive — just excitation
Cause I’m tonight
Just like dynamite

Givit to me
I said givit to me
Just givit to me that groove

The beat goes pumpin'-pumpin'
Can't stop the traffic in my mind…

Givit to me
I said givit to me
Just givit to me that groove

THE WHEEL I'M SPINNING (IS IT REAL)
There're too many ifs and don'ts that I’ve been told before
Now it's time to move on up — what am I waiting for?
Life's about the living
What else should be given to my world?

Loaded with the questions that appear inside my head
I deny the easy way to free my mind instead
That's the wheel I'm spinning
Full of stuff I bring into my world

Is it real? Is it what I'm looking for?
I can feel I was born for something more
Than spoiling all my life complaining 'bout the state I'm in
Spinning wheel…

Will I ever learn to tell the right ways from the fake?
It’s so hard to make a choice without a second take
What's the use of planning?
I'd be rather playing with my world

Is it real? Is it what I'm looking for?
I can feel I was born for something more
Than spoiling all my life complaining 'bout the state I'm in
Spinning wheel…

All I need is to know I'm on my way
Like a seed to become a tree someday
I'm reaching to the sun but still I'm asking all the time:
Is it real? Is it really-really real?

Start from scratch
Start from single sound
You know it’s hard to the first step
When no one supports you
No one gives a damn 'bout the complications you've come thru
It's not about time
It's about your faith
That inspires you to make things real
Just look around
You've done it on your own
Ask yourself:
What is it?

Is it real? Is it what I'm looking for?
I can feel I was born for something more
Than spoiling all my life complaining 'bout the state I'm in
Spinning wheel…

All I need is to know I'm on my way
Like a seed to become a tree someday
I'm reaching to the sun but still I'm asking all the time:
Is it real? Is it really-really real?

SUPERNOVA
Chorus:
Shine like a newborn star
Like a supernova
I wanna be
Wherever you are
Don't tell me it’s all over

You seem like a star
That was newly born into the space
Your light comes from afar
Though I feel you close as face-to-face

And there's no other star that shines so bright
And you're the one to guide me through the night
So let me tell you…

Chorus:
Shine like a newborn star
Like a supernova
I wanna be
Wherever you are
Don't tell me it’s all over

Night comes to an end
And the midnight stars glimmer away
But I still pretend
That your lonely light brightens my day

And there's no other star that shines so bright
And you're the one to guide me through the night
So let me tell you…

Chorus:
Shine like a newborn star
Like a supernova
I wanna be
Wherever you are
Don't tell me it’s all over
DO MY AFRO
It ain't hard to choose
Lifestyle that will never bring you down
Livin' thru the funk
You will sho'nuff groove it all around
Take your boogie shoes
Dance 'em like you never did before
Freak your funky style
With ya super-kinky-afro comb

Do my afro with your funky comb
Won't you do my afro with your funky comb?
Won't you do my afro with your funky comb?

Ain't it funky now?
Sure funky now!
FUNKIEST SITUATION

I'm in doubt 'bout this funkiest situation
And I feel that I'm out of communication
Gotta be cool but I'm falling down!

COLOR OF MIDNIGHT
Quietly you're slippin' in
Gently you pull my strings
Teasin' me with hint
Choosin' diff'rent tints

Candle lights, Chili wine
Chills run up-and-down my spine
I touch you with my fingertips
It gets me high —
Well, it’s about your skin's
Got a color of midnight…
Your skin's got a color of midnight…

We're playin' hide-and-seek
You maze me with your tricks
I’m pleading for recess
To cope with your playfulness

Lights are low, night is high
I can't stop, though I try
I make you burn from deep inside
It gets me hot —
Well, it's about your skin's
Got a color of midnight…
Your skin's got a color of midnight…

Atmosphere gets boiling hot
As we tear things apart
I make you scream, you blow my fuse
It gets me mad —
Well, it's about your skin…

Your skin's got a color of midnight…
Your skin's got a color of midnight…
BAD TIMES

Understand it
Time runs faster than light
We go thru changes even if we don't
Take it for real
I can't stand it
Things they seemed to be right
But after all that happened they're gone bad
That's what I feel

Hope you realize
I’m talking 'bout the Bad Times — Bad Times
If you don't believe —
Just look around!
Wish I'd dramatize
Talking 'bout the Bad Times — Bad Times
But not this time…

Bad Times
I've seen dreadful signs
Something's going on
It beats me out of my mind
Bad Times
I've seen dreadful signs
Something's going on
It kicks me out of my mind

I can feel it
When they tell all the lies
You can't imagine how inventive they
Can be when they need
Don't believe it
Wealth may dazzle your eyes
But if you dare to have opinion, they
Will hurt you indeed

Hope you realize
I’m talking 'bout the Bad Times — Bad Times
If you don't believe —
Just look around!
Wish I'd dramatize
Talking 'bout the Bad Times — Bad Times
But not this time…

Bad Times
I've seen dreadful signs
Something's going on
It beats me out of my mind
Bad Times
I've seen dreadful signs
Something's going on
It kicks me out of my mind

MIND OF A CHILD
I wish I had a mind of a child
Just to see all the things
As they appear inside my dreams
And if I had a mind of a child
I would do anything
To put my dreams into my life

And if I had a chance to re-live my life
I wish I'd never grow old
'Cause I don't wanna see all these nightmares anymore
I'm just a child inside

I wish I had a dream of my own
Never touched by a hand
Of evil-minded greedy man
And if I had a dream of my own
I would keep it away
From those who'll never understand

And if I had a chance to re-live my life
I wish I'd never grow old
'Cause I don't wanna see all these nightmares anymore
I'm just a child inside

I wish I had a child of my own
Just to see how he grows
Into this wild and dizzy world
And if I had a child of my own
I would do anything
To keep the childhood in his heart

And if I had a chance to re-live my life
I wish I'd never grow old
'Cause I don't wanna see all these nightmares anymore
I'm just a child inside

TALKIN' 'BOUT THINGS

Let me introduce my ego
I'm so glad you've come along
It's like never ending Lego
I'm sure that you'll enjoy the song

I've spent years of my life in talking
'Bout the thing I don’t even know
By the time I became professional
Like that guy on a late night show
And I'm chitting this — and I'm chatting that
And you better do believe me when I tell you…

I’m so busy makin' money
That you just can't say a word
And to entertain me honey
Tell me something that I haven't heard

People say I've got no feelings
They are wrong — I can feel your cash
But I don't even need no stealing
'Cause you'll pull it out of your stash
And I'm chitting this — and I'm chatting that
And you better do believe me when I tell you…

I’m talkin' 'bout things!
I’m talkin' 'bout things!

I'll be Mister Mighty-Mighty
When I reach the highest ground
Sometimes I become so flighty
Changing with the speed of sound

I could sell you a lot of nothing
You can count on a special price
But be sure to see me laughing
When I give you a bunch of lies
And I'm chitting this — and I'm chatting that
And you better do believe me when I tell you…

I’m talkin' 'bout things!
I’m talkin' 'bout things!

I'm gonna tell you one thing
Baby there is nothing
Not a thing that I don't know
No-no-no-no…

You gotta trust me always
Just because there's no way
To find out if I am wrong…





Тексты песен из альбома "Funk 2.0" (2012)

 
FUNK 2.0
Listen everybody!
We’ve got funk 2.0
Feel the groove united
Fresh down to the bone!
Hot, cool and sexy
Funky dynamite
Funky Bizness makes it
Burnin’ up all night!

Funk two-dot-O… (repeated)


Listen to me baby
I’ve got some funk for you!
Got to be crazy –
Girl you know it’s true
Hot, cool and sexy
Funky dynamite
Funky Bizness makes it
Burnin’ up all night!

Funk two-dot-O… (repeated)

(NO WAY) TO GET DOWN
I’ve got all my things together
But then found myself apart
I think I should do better
With fully empty heart
And all my friends & enemies
They pass without a trace
I’ve washed off all my memories
The rain is on my face
So I’m walking alone…

Been down-and-out for too long
Now ready to restart
I’m taking my advantage
With fully empty heart
And all my complications
Have ended one by one
With ruined expectations
And things I haven’t done
So I’m dreaming alone…

Chorus:
No way for me to get…
…Get down!

It ain’t no use in feeling
If feeling kills itself
I’d rather break my willing
Than put it in the cell
You gotta understand this
Before I go away
I ain’t that sort of person
To make me go astray
So I wake up alone…

Chorus.

I’ve stranded my positions
White flag is now unfurled
I’ve lost my intuition
That kept me from the whirl
No way for me to stand now
On this unstable ground
It’s time to pack my things now
And leave this place around

Chorus.
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU
It’s all about my baby
She makes me jump and shout
But when it comes to talkin’
I wonder where to start

She’s so amazing
My heart goes spinnin’ ‘round
But I’m feeling crazy
To make a single sound

Chorus:
It’s all about you
‘Bout the way you walking
It’s all about you
‘Bout the style you talking
It can’t be true
But I ain’t no joking
When you make me feel
Like freaky baby –
It’s all about you!

I dialed your number
To make a date with you
But you were prancin’
The conversation thru

Was it your sister
As you then told me? No –
You’re kinda twister
To treat me mean, mean, oh –

Chorus.

You came back from heaven
That’s what people say
I keep lovin’ you baby
Stronger every day

But I’m just a downtown boy
Learnin’ life so hard
And your ignorance baby
Is tearing me apart.

Chorus.
SOPHISTICATED LADY
Got myself a headache
Nothing but a heartbreak
Messin’ ‘round with girl of that kind
Let her be my mistress
Don’t you know what is this
When you realize you were blind?

She’s like politician
Using my condition
Made me do whatever I’m told
Killing my ambitions
Changing my positions
Feeling like I’m sixteen-years-old

Chorus:
Ooo-oooh…
Sophisticated lady!

She is now my madness
I wonder how she made this
I’m just paralyzed with her smile
I became her puppet
But I’m gonna stop it
Paying back by crampin’ her style

Girl you better listen
Now you’re only missin’
Playing “Itchy-Scratchy” with me
Better find another
Inexperienced lover
I’m to be your best enemy…

Chorus:
Ooo-oooh…
Sophisticated lady!
Ooo-oooh…
Sophisticated lady!
Ooo-oooh…
Sophisticated lady!
Ooo-oooh…
Sophisticated BITCH!
KEEPING THE FUNK ALIVE
Listen to that lesson baby
Message from the heart
Now it’s time for you to know
What is really hot
Keep the funky fire burning
Soul is on the run
Let the music be concerning
Guarantee for fun

Chorus:
When the beat is tight –
It gets you on the floor
When the groove is right –
It makes you want for more
When the horns do bang –
Goosebumps do arrive
Funky Bizness Gang
Is keeping the funk alive!


Start the funky education
From the zero point
Feel the positive vibration
With this heavy joint
When the hip becomes outdated
Good groove’s still alive
Even if it’s underrated –
It will surely drive!

Chorus.
(GOTTA MOVE ON) OUTSIDE
I gotta lot of a things and thrills and hots and chills
I’m gonna give it to your ear now
But first
You gotta open it up and turn it on and tune it in,
Better copping everything out
It’s all about the nasty funk, the dirty funk, the crazy funk
A pocketful of skunk funk
You feel the beat goes on, tough and strong
On and on, so let’s start the song!..

Fear of unknown
That makes you so alone
Is living deep inside
Yesterday dreams
All broken at the seams
Are living deep inside
Faith and belief
Will help you only if
You’re digging deep inside
I gotta move on
To find my own way outside

Keeping a smile
You never show nobody
What is deep inside
Tricking a style
You darken all the secrets
Hidden deep inside
But in the end
You fail to find yourself
In moments deep inside
You gotta move on
To find your own way outside

Chorus:
‘Cause if you’re only dreamin’
Dreamin’…dreamin’ of a brand new start
You gotta raise your feelings
Really coming from your heart!

Chorus.
BRAND NEW LIFE
Never ready to
Change the way of life
Never able to decipher some important signs

But there’s only you
To make up your mind
No-one else and there’s the only thing you need to know

Chorus:
No way
Only way
No way
That’s the only way
No way
Only way
No way
That’s the only way to Brand New Life

When the time has come
You can’t run yourself
All you have to do is use your circumstances right

But I’m telling you
When you go thru change
Don’t you hope that everyone will get it, get it right

Chorus.
SHARE WITH YOU

Angel is watching down at you
Guiding every step you do
And you’re dancin’ thru the day
Smiling all the blues away

If it makes you satisfied
I can break up all my pride
Just to be the guardian angel by your side

Chorus:
I can spend my love
Sharing it with you
Just like guardian angels do
Even if you fall
When I hear your call
Surely I’ll take off my wing
To share it with you
Share it with you…

Lately have I realized
What the pride is all about
Gently love will fade away
Like a star in light of day

If it makes you satisfied
I can break up all my pride
Just to be the guardian angel by your side

Chorus.
SEVEN MILLION WAYS
I’ve got seven million ways
To put a smile upon your face
Easy
And for seven million times
I found loving in your eyes
Teasin’

Chorus:
You drive me to a million wishes
Not endin’ in a million years

I’ve got seven million dreams
But there’s only one that seems
Endless
And like million times before
When I open eyes I’m sure
It lasts

Chorus.
