'KINGDOM (feat. Joe James)' is taken from the Brother's Testament upcoming album '4:7'


This place it makes me sick they love what’s plain and fear what’s weird and strange
They walk the same they talk the same I ought to but I tend to stray
The bouncer searched my pouch and soul at heaven’s gates denied me access so I went away crawled back from whence I came

But Jah still with me every day the sun his gaze his tears the rain the storm his rage his calm what makes it clear as day
Who knew that it could be this beautiful to hear some pain
I hit rock bottom then showed courage from a fearful place

Tearful bass mixed with Caleb’s keys with cheerful cadence
The kicks and snares reek of a displeasing fragrance thank you drummer
The way the hi hats say hi too quick with no regard for patience
And then there’s me to add complexity to an already convoluted situation

And turn it into a fusion of conversation and equation far too far-fetched for comprehension from either Einstein or Isaac Newton

Call me young Isaac Newton
Drifting by just kind of fluent
Contradicted by some violent movements if you try my patience

Ladies love us trident hate us
Self destruct they try to aid us
Decline their help the most high save us

College dropout messed my grades up
Used to write in isolation
I still write in isolation
Life’s not fair but life’s amazing
Life’s too short for time to waste
And life’s too long for nights spent raving

I met the love of my life when I was a youngin
Her heart was tranquil all whilst mine was racing

They say our eyes are the windows to our souls well mine’s locked I‘ve lost the key and mine’s got double glazing
She bricked it and she forced it open

I let her in cos she was awful broken
She just like Arthur pulled the sword from stone and slayed the dragon with displays of passion went and saved the kingdom


She went and saved the kingdom

She won and saved the kingdom
