Like We Own it People, people everyday Try to say just what they mean and to mean just what they say Hustle and grind all day and night With the mind to find our shine while the shadow chases light So talk and talk and toke'n, toke'n toke'n Talkin's just a token from the vibe that we've been smoking Toke and toke and talk and talk and talkin bout the line around the block and this show we bout to rock Come on lets Walk - like we own it Dance - like the night will never see the light while diggin the skin were in – Theres no need to keep it down if we want to throw a party Then were gonna bring the sound Act a fool, we just don't care cause when the freaks are at their peak we throw all hands in the air Come on lets Walk - like we own it Dance - like the night will never see the light while diggin the skin were in Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Everyday, Everyday I know Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey…….I know, I know (Walk, Dance, See the light) we can have it all, we can have it right now Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Everyday, Everyday I know Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey…….I know, I know Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Everyday, Everyday I know Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey…….I know, I know

123 I can tell by how your dressing I see it when we drop the bass I can tell by how you party all the time You from that Colorado place Drenched in sunlight, high and dry What you're selling we will surely buy It's no secret, look at the sky we got it , were gonna show you why 123, everybody you and me we’re soakin up this love from the sun and if it goes away, the last ray on our face Will light the night until the world has spun you can feel it from the downbeat all those hands up in the air staring deep into the darkness of their eyes and pretty pretty everywhere Nightlife turns into daylight Clouds are thick and sky is wide Celebrating as we put this day to rest We’ll be returning mountainside 123, everybody you and me we’re soakin up this love from the sun and if it goes away, the last ray on our face Will light the night until the world has spun Why don’t you come get some…..

Extraordinary high She's a lover, astral hoodlum, tagging the sky a swirling and elusive question.. why? hips unwinding, eyes beguiling locked to the beat A seismic movement felt under my feet The brighter the fire, the darker the shadow the pull of desire, and the push of the seedling to break through and grow Hey, I do remember and it came with an extraordinary high. falling headlong, wrapped in colors, numb to the breeze playing on the human mind trapeze body pulsing, sound elixirs, drawn to the peak questions are only for those who seek The brighter the fire, the darker the shadow the pull of desire, and the push of the seedling to break through the snow Hey, I do remember and it came with an extraordinary high.

Knock it Down They're telling me talk is cheap but cheap talk will cost you much my friend Sometimes you got to take a break Before you break, know how much can you bend it's certain that the costs are steep when steepin, know how strong you like your tea You give me pieces of your mind, but piece of mind your never given me How bout a change of attitude what will it take to get you in the mood Now cant you all see that we are havin fun Aint got no place to hide, aint got no place to run Can we keep it real….. if you speak your mind, we can work it out this time you on attack bout how they act but what cho know bout walkin in their shoes Deeper than the ocean blue but no depth of emotion in your blues…… How bout a change of attitude what will it take to get you in the mood Now cant you all see that we are havin fun Aint got no place to hide, aint got no place to run Can we keep it real….. if you speak your mind, we can work it out this time Set it up, knock it down keep all the pieces, hangin around when you find yourself, a little glue put yourself together, we've been waiting here for you Can we keep it real….

about

The new album, which is self-titled, boldly states that this is the band The Motet has strived to become. The whole has become greater than the sum of it’s parts with each member of the band contributing to the writing and arranging of the songs, telling a unified story through syncopated rhythms and melodies. If you've loved The Motet for years or are just tuning in, listen up, you haven’t heard The Motet like this and you won't be disappointed.
