Story

http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/amittaiblakk5

A unique synthesis of jazz, hip-hop, old school R&B and rock, Amittai Blakk conveys an unmistakable intensity and soulfulness that carries listeners to another place. Drawing from diverse influences, including Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Parliament Funkadelic, and Rare Earth, Amittai Blakk has forged a sound uniquely their own, and one that defies genre… A sound that follows no traditional rules. Through collaborative songcraft and seasoned, professional musicians, this 7-piece, Charlotte, NC-based band is already a must-see” live act. The first single, Levels, is an explosive and dynamic tour de force, poised to take college campuses by storm.

Lyrics

V1st/ Momma got a bill

She want me to Pay

 

and my woman

Got a frown on her face

 

Cause she think

I forgot about our dinner date

 

I'm sorry baby

But I can't stay out too late

 

Hook/ I gotta roll

When the thunder

Calls me down

 

There's so many levels

When it comes

To wearing my crown

(Repeat 1X)

 

Hook./ Can you hear me now

Cont. Can you hear me now

Can you hear me now

Can you hear me now

(Repeat 1X)

 

V2nd/ My daddy called me

Over for a drink

 

Now my friends

Upset I didn't visit them

 

I can't be

In two places at one time

 

Thought I'd remind you

Cause I gotta catch you next time

 

Hook/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 

Bridge/ There's so many levels we gotta play

But it ain't no fun if ain't no funk in it

There's so many levels we gotta play

But it ain't no fun if ain't no funk in it

 

Hook/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Vamp/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lyrics

Verse 1/ Life is so simple
Yet man complicate it for his own greed
While the world is on fire
Because of inequalities
Many names are called when we pray
But I come to let you know
Hook/ There's one
Only one
There's one
Only one


Verse 2/ Man label messengers of truth
So the majority of people stay fooled
If they can't convince you that they're God
Corporations will discredit you too
When they come for me I'll be ready
Cause I believe


Hook/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Verse 3/ The fight to control all of our minds
Will spark a world revolution
Whichever currency you have in your nation
Could never take the place of the creator
When I needed shackles released off my spirit
I found only one


Hook/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Vamp/ Make no difference what you call him
I believe there's only one
You can call him Elohim
You can call him Jehovah
You can call him El Shaddai
You can call him Allah
You can call him Jah
Oh I believe there's only one
And I don't care who know it I believe in God

Lyrics

V1st/ Lost and wondering
Who I really am
Said there's digital faces
Trying to enter my head
I don't mine
But I need the truth
That's why I'm working
To get back to my roots


Hook/ Oooh..........ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh


V2nd/ My life kept on spinning
In that wheel too long
Said my soul kept on sensing
That something was wrong
And I don't mine
Fighting for the truth
That's why I've decided
To go back to my roots


Hook/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


V3rd/ Times I was standing
At the crossroads of my life
Choose the wrong direction
Ain't no telling what I'll find
Papa taught me
Do what you gotta do
That's why I'll always
Go back to my roots


Hook/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Break/ Yeah... I'm going back to my roots
down I'm going, I'm going
Back to my roots
