This spitting from penciling Poetic dichtom(y) Musical composition is like an herbal physician Botanical prescriptions for healing The indigo bio-metrical laser for medical lenses Chiropractic Cataract Vision into high definition We're on the brink of extinction the conflict catalyst flu experiments Will intelligence end the tale in apocalypse? Self ordain Solomon with a GOD-complex in this earth that spin But a man who makes trouble within His home shall inherit the wind We gonna rock you like Astrobelts Cause your universe to collapse on itself This is something that you never have felt Like the coming of 2012 Like ahh ooh This vinyl's Astro 12 inch round turntables This vinyl’s Astro It's like we are Cain dwelling in the land of Nod Ear lopes probed with electric rods In Bio nary pods to charge this Microsoft Wizard of OZ Adams (Atoms) that shuttle jog from the analogue voice of GOD Eating apples from tree of gigabytes(bites) in the garden of Macintosh This 1984 big brethren pharmaceutical gel tans 3 meals in a pill Jetsons from Jefferson We swing to evolve through Darwin's monkey bars But its evident it's death of the Homo Birth of the Robo-sapien surrogates
To all my obstacles That made this official This is a Standing O, encores and bravos For Critical Editorials shitting on the flow You haters strike a pose you made this Photo Strap my kids on my back pen and pad in my lap black woman elevated truly favored in my worst times Even though I write rhymes in social service lines my struggle feeds the message to enlighten souls and minds Tough times are necessary when goals are legendary cant believe that this is all in vain Loss gain one in the same and love and pain is whole I’d rather brave the rain then to lose my soul Work when I can and go to school late Gotta be present in my home and in my heart but in my heart theres still this part That keeps on playing the music So everyday I sing a song to the fire cause it only made me strong They said I couldnt do it til they saw me rock a stage soul stirring pregnant belly nothing to it I pursue it just because its life its my kids its my man its right its mysoul its my plan the Truth For my hand shakes like earthquakes turbulence pacing nervousness Forgot my verse verbalist like memories of herbalist Mic stage fright nail bite manicure services heckles riffle from grassy knolls of the crowd disturbances Assassinate hopes murder she wrote before I spoke lumps like oats Poked and soaked the throat I'm left like artichokes Clear the gun smoke of the folks I'm left the art of choke Like Chuck Palahniukh dinner chokes without the Heimlich hoax Larcenist and plagiarist finger prints on my manuscripts sling shot the catalyst drop the flight of Icarus Mind minimalist miming mentalist blind oblivious To their dummy spine's ventriloquist shit on the rhyme riddlist Promoters bailed renege leaving bread trails retail the tix at wholesale then trick us like we're hoes for sale Carousel spin gazelles in fine printed veils spelled in braille can't be read or scaled under the finger nail The Intel details parallel to taking Ls we still prevail para sail Rock the Bells then Cochell(a) Round of applause for the inspired writer Blocks that conspire to silence my Jeremiahs For jobs I was fired straddle the fence in dire consequence for hire or call these clocks sire PA systems signal the ear with astigmatisms the crowd couldn't hear him thought the show was instrumental Adjust the signal came back and killed'em left the victims Chopped up with lyricism as if Dexter had did them Big ups to hateration thanks to feeling complacent without these things Id never know what it is to be patient Was told just play your roll was bamboozled and pigeon holed to neo soul keep it under control I never stopped believing im stepping in my season Ive known my reason since a child plant the seed in my child Pick up my pen begin a revelution Soak the photo in solution and suddenly we appear not afraid of the exposure Free radical atmosphere Critical view on the flow you haters strike a pose Standing O

Beneath the halogen electrics phosphorescent incandescence and fluorescent Coronas glow angelic halo crescent Magnetic aesthetics syringe poetic injected You tranquilize my ear's perspective like an anesthetic In this labyrinth dissected by the epic where the entrance is the exit Radius the ray in us that's geometric Ciphers that we connected to drum lines isometric In the sand of brain glands mandalas of the etch-a-sketches Your vocal box phonetics elevate the mental building blocks to the ceiling crevasse Like a bad game of Tetris When I first started to check it I couldn't find the nouns in verbs Sounds in words ground in nerves to Gettysburg Address it I use to watch the noisettes Cut the noise in sets Battle Adam’s apples fencing bayonettes of breath and text through dialects Like Montagues and Capulets over this Juliet pose the pros in pirouettes Froze flows of laureates in silhouettes I've seen niggaz cup you disrespect you looking puzzled Why the speech of their piece release muffled like they was muzzled From wire to wireless My lips kiss you like honey suckles From dents to condensers we're a couple I always loved you Females in the past could never grasp why they thick like blackberry molass(es) From their thighs calves and ass But under cherry moon Its you my grasp wanted to grab But when it came to sex or sets I bust this vocab. I had this crush on this mic Since the first light that you entered to my sight Since the first night that you enter into my life Since the verse you recite centered under those spectra bright Convinced my search there’s no other like love at first sight I had this crush I had a crush too We're meant to be Love eternally The vessel for my souls release Dont ever leave me (repeat) I'll talk sweet to you I'll go hard for you baby Sing you a melody Don't ever leave me This flower's in bloom for you I will sing you every song honey A pretty melody Don't ever leave me You let me be the sun to your moon You reflect my every frequency Sing you a melody Baby don't ever leave me You turn me up baby And you cool me down honey Sing you a melody Please don't ever leave me

"Speakers in Black Holes" is the colorful culmination of tracks manifested within the solar hotbox that was the Summer of 2010. After months of continuous shows, growth and evolution, these tracks were recorded and produced in Richmond, VA with the assistance of Josh Scolaro and embody the hybrid sounds of what Photosynthesizers call "Tronic Soulschool Hip Hop". This EP is simply an introduction to the band's extra-categorical sounds with more audio movements to follow. Stay tuned...
