Pacifics

Reachin' (Butterfly)
butterfly searchin for a relax
pullin from the jazz stacks cause it’s sunday
on the air is incense
sounds to the ceiling
tryin to get this feelin since monday
lookin out the window
watchin all the people go
buggin off a funny vibe
cause now it seems their equal
wonder what would trane say
wonder what my pops say
buggin off the calmness in the apple
who me i’m coolin in new york
i’m chillin in new york
the hoods is on my block
and the brothers at the court
the baseball hats is on
and the projects is calm
dream times extended

(Ladybug)
and highly recommended

(Butterfly)
but early birds like me’s up checkin out the scene
the early worms job, forget about your job
just come dig the essence while the decadence is hidden
when people act like people, the theory is in picture
if you know the norm it’s like hades transformed
on sundays early hours the city sprouts its flowers
so get with the rhythms while you gettin with the planets
vibe off the jams but don’t take em for granted
just chill (just chill)

(Sample)
new york is red hot
new york is red hot
new york is red hot
new york is red hot

(Butterfly)
we venture through the streets in search of funky beats

(Doodlebug)

(Ladybug)

(Butterfly)

(Doodlebug)

(Butterfly)
we foot it to the park where the swoon units walk

(Ladybug)
and sit with the phoenicians diggin on musicians

(Doodlebug)
hangin with the rebels sippin on a snapple

(Butterfly)
buggin wit my crew just trippin in the apple

(Ladybug)
you be thinkin peace when you vibin with your flock

(Doodlebug)
but you be thinkin damn everybody got a glock

(Butterfly)
if you got some beef please express that in silence, or else
violence

(Ladybug)
but right here is the life it’s the children of the concrete

(Butterfly)
livin off the fruits and the functions of the fat beats

(Doodlebug)
hip hop’s all around the members is growin

(Butterfly)

so chill

wake up prayin that a games on
maybe it’s the runnin rebs maybe it’s the nicks
maybe it’s a re-run of a old tv show
like hawaii 5-0 or karate flicks
maybe if the phone rings butterfly will take wings
speakin on some cool things frontin like i cope
born unto flat ground now i’m chilling shaky ground
reachin for pacific heights sunday is my rope, dig it
sundays to relax, sundays to relax
some sunday mornin drama is callin up my mama
the hotline is in i guess the silvers knew the deal
vibin off the jams of the crews on sugar hill
lay around and think aint nothin to do
checkin out some fromm, some sartre, camus
mingus is ahh um damn roach can drum
the dp’s are life there they go here they come
it’s time to grab some loot put on the timber boots
