Track Name: Moon Talk
(Hook)
so I look up in the sky, I'm staring at the moon
everybody round me tell me imma make it soon
everything's a lie, it's never what i thought
then i realise it was all moon talk, Moon Talk, Moon Talk

(Verse 1)
everybody thinks I have it all, but i ain't got shit
all i got is myself, my fans and my music
and i gotta use it to power your amusement
problem is im from a city with no future in music
gotta keep it real, where im from its illegal to dream
ideas they steal for money makin machines
i remember last year no labels wanted to sign me
now they wish there were 2 ShiGGas like i was born Siamese
hard-headed so my attitude collided
anybody that claim they Fly tell em im Pilot
my dreams infront of me now, i'll never let it go
they say its a mistake im makin, in time we'll know


(Hook)
so I look up in the sky, I'm staring at the moon
and everybody round me tell me imma make it soon
but everything's a lie, it's never what i thought
then i realise it was all moon talk
[talking on the moon, talking on the moon]
So I can't stop won't stop, palala palala


(Verse 2)
incredibly incredible aint nobody identical
radical to the game but never really had a role
how can they miss the kid when his flow so Sick
Hospital rhymes, hot spitter man they dont know shit
these little haters look into the mirror, and they see me
cause who they really wanna be, is me
although i was so Broke, homie never had a Fix
so tell your favourite rapper that ShiGGa Shay got next


(Hook)
so I look up in the sky, I'm staring at the moon
and everybody round me tell me imma make it soon
but everything's a lie, it's never what i thought
then i realise it was all moon talk
[talking on the moon, talking on the moon]
So I can't stop won't stop, palala palala


Uh, yeah. And they call me shigga, said they call me shigga..
Track Name: Let's Roll
(Intro)
this goes out to everybody with a dream..
Yo listen.. Uh.. if you ever fought for what you believed in
This one's for you..


(Verse 1)
So I came in the game and imma state my stand
cause i feel like im insane, they dont understand
the pain living behind these huge brick walls
everybody hates you and nobody ever calls
imma chase my dreams man i never wanna wake up
imma be that guy that people say that they love
i ain't a iphone i can't be touched
with my fist I clutched, throw it at such and such
and im losing friends for pursuing my career
but i promise when i make it imma still be here
they try to bring you down, they gotta chance to hate you
like a video game, they try to play you
man i wish you could see the situation im in
imma win nothing can stop me even a whirlwind
if you ever NEED somebody im here with you
brace up homie i gotcha back too


(Chorus) x 2
say aye!
for ya city when you touch the sky
say oh!
for ya city when you ready to fly
got a whole bunch of people that are ready to go
so lets roll
got a whole bunch of people that are ready to go
so lets roll


(Verse 2)
they tell you how to do it when they aint done it before
imma do it my way, twice, call it an encore
gimme pressure I'll turn into a diamond and shine
name any place in the world imma claim that city its mine
starin at success thinkin when is it my turn
thats the question from THEM who watched stages that ive burnt
imma make it im NOT just somebody that wants to
kick me when i was down, now i turned into a monsta
i aint talkin bout self-esteem
but it seems like everybody who's seen
is tryna go and shatter our dreams
well it means I did more than whatever the rest did
if believing was a crime then i should've been arrested
you'll be tested so when they knock you down, GET UP
you gon fall but dont you ever dare just LET UP
tell a hater that hated, imma go hurt some
no asians ever made it? well im about to be the FIRST ONE

(Chorus) x 2
say aye!
for ya city when you touch the sky
say oh!
for ya city when you ready to fly
i got a whole bunch of people that are ready to go
so lets roll
got a whole bunch of people that are ready to go
so lets roll

(Outro)
put ya hands in the sky if you ever gotta dream
its time to shine make every city light beam
imma put my city on the map
cause love is something that my city never really had
dont stop, even when they tell you to
you gotta rock, whatever they bring to you
tell everybody imma go destroy the game
if you lookin for something different homie i am the change (LETS GO!)

(Chorus) x 2
say aye!
for ya city when you touch the sky
say oh!
for ya city when you ready to fly
i got a whole bunch of people that are ready to go
so lets roll
got a whole bunch of people that are ready to go
so lets roll

(Outro)
Don't ever let anybody stop you..
and ya know it… we're ready….
Lets roll..

Track Name: Break Me (Ft. Muzique)
(Verse 1)
No money in my pocket, made use whatever brought to me
never be a star unless i graduate Astrology
dont wanna wake up from my dreams so i hit snooze
born to win mama never raised her son to lose
always was a rolling stone, spent my birthdays alone
nobody knows me inside, only numbers of my phone
For real, I feel like I've been thru Hell
they don't want me to succeed? Imma do it by myself
Everybody that hated gon' be on my bandwagon
acting like they ridin with me ever since it all happened
making sure mama never window shops again
"im so proud of my boy" she gon be tellin her friends
2 years down look where it all done came to
bout to do it for my city and im still that same dude
Imma scream till everybody tell me they heard it
if i die making history homie it's all worth it

(Chorus) X2
Now take a look, look at me now
Ive come so far to the top and im here to stay
Now take a look, look at me now oh
ive seen the top and no ones gonna break
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
No ones gonna break me


(Verse 2)
I aint perfect, im young and made alotta mistakes
imma make it out here, whatever it gon take
Life is a Movie but i cant figure out my script
if grinding is a Crime then success gon be my Verdict
nothin is forever even Flowers gon Wither
nobody gets my Food for Thought too Bitter
they tell me Im Number One and im second to none
breathe life to the game even if I lose a Lung
so i tell em on my own when i get in my zone
and i be lookin around and all i see is my clones
you need something real just listen to me & my heartbeat
its destined to come true everytime the stars meet
when I sell out arenas with sold out shows
and ShiGGa Shay gon be a name everybody knows
I'll never give up even if they try to make me
try ta knock me down but you can never Break Me


(Chorus) X2
Now take a look, look at me now
Ive come so far to the top and im here to stay
Now take a look, look at me now oh
ive seen the top and no ones gonna break
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
No ones gonna break me


(Bridge)
take everything away but you can't touch my drive
when everything was wrong Mama kept me alive
get my Etta James on cause I finally made it
middle finger to every one of those that hated
i was just a kid wit a dream to put my city on
we here now Lion City man my city strong
Yeah, man my city strong
(Putcha hands in the sky everybody sing!)


(Chorus) X2
Now take a look, look at me now
Ive come so far to the top and im here to stay
Now take a look, look at me now oh
ive seen the top and no ones gonna break
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
no ones gonna break me (I see the Stars in the skies tonight)
No ones gonna break me
Track Name: Echoes (Ft. Sylvia Ratonel)
(Intro)
Somebody find me an..
Uh, yo


(Verse 1)
see i gave her my all but she played me like an X-Box
it was all an act, and a moment fact so fake like a Mascot
aint nothing right when you left me nothing in the corner, torn and surprised
born from a lie, that smile of yours was all a disguise
now listen if you were in my position trapped in a whirlwind
step inside my shoes and you can see how my world spin
after all that you did to me, why do i still care
you sucked memories outta me and turned em all into nightmares
the past, from livin the life to tryin figure out what my life is
i hope karma hits you and your heart shatters like mine did
can't believe after all you were only pretend
im done with this shit i swear i'll never be in love again!

(Chorus):
somebody find me an angel one you can take away
never realised i loved you until you were gone
all i hear are these voices
get it outta my head, outta my head
ive had with this broken promises
and it kills me inside
just hearin your Echoes,
(in my head and its driving me crazy)
hearin your Echoes,
(can't believe how much it's changed me)
Hearin your Echoes,
(why was it all just taken away)
hearin your Echoes
(can't lie no more, man im not okay)
and it kills me to hear your Echoes,
(said its killin me inside right now)
Im hearin your Echoes (man its killin me inside right now)
im hearin your echoes (said its killin me inside right now)
and it kills me to hear your echoes

(Verse 2)
crazy how it's been 2 years since you passed away
and ive got alott bottled up that i really have to say
you would be so proud to know what ive been through
i would give up everything that i have just to get to see you
havin you believe in me, was, the greatest gift you gave
but leaving me to the family had me caught up in a maze
everything you did for me was all well worth it
i love you Papa but now its too late for you to hear it
when they criticized me, you told me to man-up
you taught to be a man so forever i stand tough
if we had money to pay the doctors you wouldve survived
its fucked up society's not anything that is televised
it kills me to know that i wasnt there at your last breath
eats me alive thinking how we havent said goodbye yet
its weird now everyone misses you dearly
im shouting to the sky i just need to know if you can hear me


(Chorus):
somebody find me an angel one you can take away
never realised i loved you until you were gone
all i hear are these voices
get it outta my head, outta my head
ive had with this broken promises
and it kills me inside
just hearin your Echoes,
(in my head and its driving me crazy)
hearin your Echoes,
(can't believe how much it's changed me)
Hearin your Echoes,
(why was it all just taken away)
hearin your Echoes
(can't lie no more, man im not okay)
and it kills me to hear your Echoes,
(said its killin me inside right now)
Im hearin your Echoes (man its killin me inside right now)
im hearin your echoes (said its killin me inside right now)
Im hearin your Echoes
(man its killin me inside right now)


Breakdown:
Sometimes I just wanna let it go tomorrow,
try so hard to only feel my sorrow,
I turn around and I only see me,
lookin' in the mirror and I only see me...
and I'm hearin your Echoes..
and I'm hearin your Echoes.. your Echoes.. oh..
Your Echoes.. Your Echoes..
and I'm hearin' your Echoes.. Your Echoes..
Your Echoes.. and I'm hearin' Your Echoes..
(I swear I'll never be in love again!)
(I just need to know if you can hear me!)
(I swear I'll never be in love again!)
(I just need to know if you can hear me!)
