about

to the listeners, i encourage you to hear this EP with hopeful ears. Although _HUNGER CITY] is a story of difficult circumstance, emotional bruising and harmful lockdown; it is also a true example of freedom, self discovery and soul empowerment.

lyrics

i was born from the womb of a wounded child
who was enlisted to be prophet of the harlem mob
but she was hiding low in the wild downtown
making drinks for people in the village crowd … it was so loud

its the way we flex our lungs, she said
its what we do with our tongues -
throwing stones at the sun in hopes it will shatter

i was saved by a man who was watching me cry
across the room in a cabin filled with liars and wives.
he pulled me aside and said to write down; all the fears in my head - the pain poured out. it was so loud.

its the way we flex our lungs, he said
its what we do with our tongues -
throwing stones at the sun in hopes it will shatter

its the way we flex our lungs, he said
its what we do with our tongues -
throwing stones at the sun in hopes it will shatter

if you’re there with the child or you’re there all alone,
and you're scared late at night; with pain in your bones...
being abused and being let down,
trying to be heard in a world so loud …. you don't have to shout

have no fear - there is help on the other side.
you’ll find the way, baby
no more tears.
make your way to the other side; where its safe - go escape.

(if you ever feel alone my love, and you forget why you sing songs … pick up a stone)

his fists and money wont hold us down
