    Designed by Jennifer Pitoscia, you won't regret buying this limited edition compact disc. The cover feels so smooth and inside you'll find a drawing I made when I was 10 years old. Nothing feels better (than a hot tub) than unwrapping the plastic of a fresh album cover and hanging it where ever you WANT. Use the cd as a decoration on your wall or even as a cool K8A pendant. You can also appreciate listening to it, but hey, we're just trying to find other fun uses. Enjoy, dear gems. Shipping is free for people living in Canada!

Track Name: Astro
i could follow you in time
different parallels in mind
spaceships won’t cross dimensions
we both had our directions

is there some place I could rest
without disturbing my sis
stars are telling me the truth
i’m drowning in this fountain I call you

mystery surrounds our universe
we should all live our lives in reverse
history is telling me that repetition is a curse
so you wake up and be the one who stands up first

his soul
divine
soft words
hypnotize
his touch
way too fine

wind against my will, wind against my will
wind against my will, wind against my will
dust into your eyes
blind so I could hide

i’ll be the moon and I’ll let you be Sun
how high the moon Ella knows but you’ll wait til
i’m done, I am done

empty the room so space can posess
my mind is full exhaling the thrill of the thought
the thought

wind against my will, wind against my will
wind against my will, wind against my will
dust into your eyes
blind so I could hide

dislexic mind
misread your lips
hide from all sounds
See clearly you thought it was gold
it was gold

i could follow you in time
different parallels in mind
Track Name: Siberia
conspicuous circle of feathers
I sent an owl on him
oral traditions are etched on
aurora borealis
creation of catharcis
aurora borealis

siberian winds
kept a
secret from me
the darkest wolf has been seen
large facing eyes wants to
go after she cries
red painted rock
that looks just like your heart

you’ve been in my dreams
materialized with chills I can’t speak
chills I can’t
Lada
sage in my hands
your home is still strange to me
cause Lada runned, runned
runned from your bad luck
Lada
runned, runned
runned from your January cold

siberian winds
kept a
secret from me
the darkest wolf has been seen
large facing eyes
wants to
go after she cries
red painted rock
that looks just like your heart

conspicuous circle of fire
I poured some water on him
veiled up a canvas crafted by your stars
strewn it with madness
Track Name: 8-100
eight hundred years ago,
it could have worked
pure golden temples and
green grass walks
i had to climb mountains
slept in the rain
then got that secret serum
kept him from my pain

fermented for a while
opened up your wounds
then looked at me and smiled
opened up your heart

i had to climb mountains
slept in the rain
then got that secret serum
kept him from my pain

these sonorous desires weren’t mine
it was misconcieved
the only thing that matters now is fine
i won’t believe
a somnambulist, it’s fabulous
how tropical desire still gives you fever
you pushed me into your own swamp and both weren’t free

the ocean gets deeper when you dig up the blur
and my mind gets greener cause I fed it with dirt
did you know eight hundred years ago
if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t know
dreams can get clearer move your body
through words

eight hundred years ago,
it could have worked
pure golden temples and
green grass walks

i had to climb mountains
slept in the rain
then got that secret serum
kept him from my pain

fermented for a while
opened up your wounds
then looked at me and smiled
opened up your heart

i had to climb mountains
slept in the rain
then got that secret serum
kept him from my pain

your eyes are feeling swollen
your breath starts to shorten
your hands are near the sunken
treasure

ya drown in the sunken treasure

you drown near the sunken treasure
Track Name: Layin' Sleek
Softly pull out
A silver line from my head
See if you look ahead
Opened a world that could spread for

Miles I could walk miles
Away from shallow undertones
Sending waves to your ears
Mindfull pieces you hear

K8A can take it
Cause it’s paused and away
And foggy days won’t escape
Your aura’s glowing through grey

I remember
To surrender
For a while

Time backwards
Let it go now
And rise

The more you want it
Look the other side
Two poles alike
Both repel at touch

Crash a wall
Precious way
Free my hands I’m stalling now

Roam through life
Push away
Laying sleek won’t go too far

rap Milla Thyme
Sometimes this life is strenuous, like jail sentences
connect my thoughts like commas do to sentences
so my mind can be at ease on the penmanship
not a care in the world and my intention is to hit you with the real
from the ghettos and favelas all the way to beverly hills, people can feel
the same story universally spoken
whether it’s blatant hate or a heart that been broken, I'm trying to get your mind open
with these soliloquies to think about the possibilities that we can reach
I use the weapon of speech to teach, those inherently weak
that life can be the opposite of bleak, it’s vibrant
like all the faces from places I've been
I'm at the table I'm grateful, amen
before I eat and when I sleep
it gets deep like the words in my voice, negativity is just a choice
a sign of the times and the struggles we all go through
I know I'm out of my mind but still I hope to
persuade you to take a trip with me, forget your troubles and your worries then just flip your seat
just recline with the intertwine of ya inner mind
keep hustlin' cause all good things come with time
these are my thoughts and the things I try to get across, even when the lines are blurred and all is lost

We gotta keep it groovin’, we gotta keep it movin’
we gotta do it for you and yours and all us humans
we gotta keep it groovin’, we gotta keep it movin’
we gotta do it for you and yours and all us humans
