The Return 02:50
(Chorus: Smokey the Ghost & Aerate Sound) it's the return of the G, like Andre put your hands in the air make arms sway if you're bad to the bone and feeling alright in the hard hard days (Verse 1: Smokey the Ghost) I'm here to joke about some people that I know collect your sense of humor, sit back and listen to close Not so long ago, when rap wasn't so cold nobody knew what we do, me and BV spitting flows As the days keep on ticking, one day we met a soul Said he's an organizer and also CEO turned to V and said, I like the way you rhyme so sign the dotted line, don't read the print is fine Flash a curving smile, said he wants to make us rich said he wants performance but no pay, he hit the switch (Switch) 10 years to this day, still payments kinda vague Krunk they do me a favors, to give me what I made my rap, I rap away and replace the R in RSJ Azadi's political until you're pressing play so careful what you claim, and look before you aim the trees and frogs the same, Anti-social sort of name Selling out to crooks, broke artists are to blame so don't call this a comeback... (Chorus: Smokey the Ghost & Aerate Sound) it's the return of the G like Andre put your hands in the air make arms sway if you're bad to the bone and feeling alright in the hard hard days (Verse 2: Smokey the Ghost) Let it be known that I am the greatest that ever rock the mic, Like a clock, I strike This industry fucked up, made a cynic out of Rahul Giri But show no pity, I go all out Pallemoni Can't leave rap alone, the game needs my alimony See Raps my wifey, and Rap is sleeping with sand above it I Wake the princess with no kisses like I'm disco puppet I'm from the basement I hope to make it to cosmic's attic I cross the line Take what is mine Delay my payment Elusive vibes Take back your lies, your Views and your likes Fuck it I'm quitting rap and ill rap when I'm saying that, and I snap and you play this back, cause punk never craved the craft, I bunked every day of class, thunk every punch impact In fact, don't call this a comeback... (Chorus: Smokey the Ghost & Aerate Sound) it's the return of the G, like Andre put your hands in the air make arms sway if you're bad to the bone and feeling alright in the hard hard days it's the return of the G like Andre put your hands in the air make arms sway if you're bad to the bone and feeling alright in these hard hard days (Verse 3: Smokey the Ghost) They put out the spark now a days it's so dark now days, Can't see the vision, pinch of salt now days Don't let my brother Naqu Project his art, now a day, so fucking hard now a days, don't pray to god now a days now a days, I'm driven... on alcohol now a days, blinded on our mission, wannabe stars now a days given that our vision don't go far now a days When the heights of ambition tall is dwarf now a days it's so cold now a days, yours and mine now a days, my brother joe felt a shiver down his spine now a day I went to magnetic fields, stood in shade now a days Times is grave, greed is plague now a days, its the return

Breathe 04:08
(Intro) (Verse 1: Smokey the Ghost) Hello world, The code of beginning How far have we come on this ball that is spinning Apart from the armor of ego defenses It must be the winning of capitalism (Breathe) Is Killing a family's filling of stomach When Syrian sons, are still in the syrup As cynical winners administered sinners To blow up the building of trade (Breathe) You're trumping a Donald, he's actually goofy But that all folks You killed David bowie Act like the Muslims don't even know thee, you're changing a vote to give it to... (Breathe) Tsunami that swallow the seas Demontize all of your greed Nobody cheese Surgical striking your efficacy (Breathe) Sounds like your human, don't know what your doing, voting for change in search of the chosen Hating the homos and dissing our women RSSVP Hitler and Lennon Ain't we just human, or have we forgotten By blaming the others, you're part of the problem, look up inside you, I ask you to breathe Ain't you just human, I ask you Breathe But I don't receive an answer, Human self has fallen to feet... (Chorus: Smokey the Ghost & Aerate Sound) Dead So i put my Ears To your head You spoke And you said In the last of your breath (2) Hello world (Hey) Hello world (Did you see?) (That we been) Hey Did you know That we been... Hey Did you see That we been... (Sax Solo by RJT) (Verse 2: Smokey the Ghost) For flyovers, you took all our trees Cause Human superior breed The white man is senior still, more melanin needy for cheap Labor and whipping Your cheek is turning like Gandhis on fleek I figured the father of speech, has vigor to pardon the weak The scissor you sought to your sheep Cause human superior breed... The white man is senior still, more melanin needy for cheap Labor and whipping Your cheek is turning like Gandhis on fleek I figured the father of speech, has vigor to pardon the weak The scissor you sought to your sheep (Chorus: Smokey the Ghost & Aerate Sound) Dead So I put my Ears To your head You spoke And you said In the last of your breath (2) Hello world (Hey) Hello world (Did you see?) (That we been) That's all folks (Breathe adlibs & Sax Solo by RJT)

Cherry orange Yall need drugs (belly bottom) I guess we all need drugs (disregarded) I guess we all need drugs (dwell in darkness) Ya'll need... Cherry orange

(Intro & Kannada sample) (Verse 1: Smokey the Ghost) Living up in Bangalore man I thought that everybody walk this way wake up to pe cos, my mojos peak when I sip this haze Vidhan Soudha lion got every cubb-on the park to play, All hail the queen that put Empires on a churches way No fan of Gandhi, my punches echo in Koshy says So Chinnaswamy let identity teleport away you probably can start it, I'll follow wherever UB Cantonment of coolies, enrolled in the gravy to float as IT reverse AKs make a Area-code Ashoka took golf balls, no birdes to hole, they fucked my city my soul Cause a Hideous growth Turn my moody Monroe, into a dubious hoe, But I Got to be patient Thank goodness gracious Hearts full of latent emotions that never made it Incarcerated by Self-doubt You try to fake it Dwell in thoughts that never was, Her Rebel cause Overthunk reality, she's walks the peril par An idle mind stations nothing but the devils shop Control by the chemicals, turned her to an animal, escaping a 9-5, be slave of mechanicals Remember that you got to be patient Black white or Asian Follow no nation Troubles we face em Without standing ovations Welcome to home, post-colonial invasion (Chorus: Aerate Sound & Smokey the Ghost) Turn on your vision, our two eyes frown don't you See no Religion, sing I'm alright Turn on your vision, our two eyes frown don't you See no Religion, sing I'm alright (Verse 2: Smokey the Ghost) Living up in Bangalore, man I thought ill never make it In a city populated full of silly occupations We travel so majestic, like tipu's summer palace Never Sold it in an auction, so national's the market, Similar apartments same cinema of solace As synonyms of people still differ where the heart is City of the gardens, girls are pretty, boys are honest Every breath is cherry orange, Lal bagh is like a forest. I'm nothin but a petal, you all nothing but a flower, Bangalore's a plant, man it's sunny when it showers Got women weed and Weather, and our anthers so developed, but I wish our ways were higher like we vishaveshwar iyer Love scatters like its Raman, haters sprouting every autumn, take steps full of caution or be stuck up in the bottom Treasure the distortion, mix a measure of emotion, to make a song about my home, the hole I feel it often But I Never Leave Bangalore broken My vocals are spoken by the people thats woken Open mind and they focus, unless they croak up in opus, welcome to home... Unless you doubt this is Bogus Please Remember that you got to be patient Black white or Asian Follow no nation Troubles we face em Without standing ovations Welcome to home, post-colonial invasion (Chorus: Aerate Sound & Smokey the Ghost) Turn on your vision, our two eyes frown don't you See no Religion, sing I'm alright Turn on your vision, our two eyes frown don't you See no Religion, sing I'm alright (Outro)

about

The Human Form is a story about a flower. A flower of five petals: black, white, brown, yellow & olive. As the flower blooms from Smokey's dead and decaying body, the cherry orange that is the sun feeds it and gives it new life. As light becomes dark and dark becomes light, a gripping story unfurls.
