Album Art by Oluwafemi:


You may like what you see,
but it's trouble going nowhere.
NEVER, (not necessarily!?!)
but that's the way it's got to be.

Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh

Look don't touch oh
Look don't touch it

Ale that flows like water.
BEHOLD your "fallen nature"
No means NO young sapling.
Please don't make assumptions

Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh

Look don't touch oh
Look don't touch it!

Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh Ah Eh
