Bon Voyage

lyrics

[Chorus] - MuRli
I told my Mama that I'm gonna be greatest
That’s why you see me moving had to search for greener pastures
So I had to leave, don't hate me coz I love you
I am trying to make us better man I am doing it for us
I told my Mama that I'm gonna be greatest
That’s why you see me moving had to search for greener pastures
So I had to leave, don't hate me coz I love you
I am trying to make us better man I am doing it for us

[Verse 1] - God Knows
Should my head ever inflate up like a balloon pop that
I know El, I know Mike, him ah Kool Kat
Rusangano hard to pronounce like Okmalumkoolkat
Kid I don't wanna freestyle I already told you that
Dad I told nuff times I wanna do Rap
What does music mean to you?
I'll migrate and become an Eskimo and live in an igloo if I get a bad review,
How does that sound to you?
I told my my best friend right before the grad
That I'm gonna be the greatest, right then he told me he was gonna be a dad
And that was that
That's why I had to leave, had to search for greener pastures
And move on with the others
The music industry used to have a hand in my dreams
Now they got a hand in my streams
What is this world coming to?
Actually the more important question is what gigs are you coming to?
Hahaha that's not a joke though, I want to play in Kyoto and Lesotho
Book me a resort though, I'll take a B&B that's the last resort though
Oh Oh, forgot my tooth brush, haha I'll send you a postcard and take photo's
I promise!

[Verse 2] - MuRli
Yo it's the R-A double P E-R M U R L I aka boycotter of lies of silence
Words you couldn't say to my face but they're a growing menace
They thought me silence is golden but misquoted the carats 
My brothers confirming their fertility getting me embarrassed 
While I had my eyes on the throne like brothers in Paris
Fresh out of my teenage I promised to break allegiance
Fed up with the system I dared to become a nuisance
Fire on all cylinders, engineering the difference 
With our backs against the wall we were born to play defense
But me I take offense, bring it to you first
Give you thirst for something fresh like greed in reverse
If death is a promise every day's a bonus
Beat around the bush my whole life now I'm under the onus
On the flight to success everybody's bogus
Hocus-pocus is so widely spoken you gon’ lose your focus
But Heaven is my brainfeeder I'm a flying lotus
Fading out of your line of sight I don't care if you notice
Some will only love you when you still novice
I'd rather hurt you and write you a solace
Compromised but at least I'm honest (I’m honest)
Bon voyage!

Chorus(MuRli)
I told my Mama that I'm gonna be greatest
That’s why you see me moving had to search for greener pastures
So I had to leave, don't hate me coz I love you
I am trying to make us better man I am doing it for us
I told my Mama that I'm gonna be greatest
That’s why you see me moving had to search for greener pastures
So I had to leave, don't hate me coz I love you
I am trying to make it better man I am doing it for us

(...When you are called to talk to the people about their souls, this is what let the dead bury the dead means)
