In Search 03:07
“In Search” Written by Jameel Farruk Dear city of mine You’ve held me all this time Now it’s best I make my way High up in the sky crossing an ocean In search of what’s within Give in to all pleasures and sins I’ve been searching for the strangest ride Let it take me from my home Let it show me a bold new world Let it teach me all the things I thought I’d known Dear lovers and friends I’ll get back to you again Till then the world is mine Been longing to be one with the world The stories I now write They took me five years and a girl I’ve been searching for the strangest ride Let it take me from my home Let it show me a bold new world Let it teach me all the things I thought I’d known

Flows 04:32
“Flows” Written by Jameel Farruk I look around New friends, they surround me We all touched down The beaches of Langkawi This new love We all came to make it This new love Nobody’s gonna waste it We feel it in our bones Can you feel it? Can you feel it? Come and feel our flow We trade off rounds The barman slinging Tigers Underneath his tin-roof bar We turn the flow up higher This new love Ain’t nothing gonna shake it This new love We know that we can take it Everywhere we go Can you feel it? Can you feel it? Come and feel our flow

“Island Tripping” Written by Jameel Farruk Dreams of yesterday Eyes on Ha Long Bay We’ll dream again tomorrow Our dreams are only borrowed Where you wanna go? Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh We’ve been island tripping All over Southeast Asia Where you wanna go? There’s something about you It keeps me hanging on There’s something about you It makes my world feel smaller There’s something about you (There’s something about you) Wish I was hanging around Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh We’ve been island tripping All over Southeast Asia

A Ghost 04:03
“A Ghost” Written by Jameel Farruk I don’t have a thing you want What I have is all I got Don’t think past what’s clear to me Still unsure what my life means I slip into the Andaman Lose my legs, find them again On Railay Beach with Mary Jane I have something I need to say I’m empty and I’ve lost my way I loved someone, she wouldn’t stay She left me cold and feeling grey She threw our last five years away I hope you help me with my pain Please warm my lips and kiss my brain Come mess me up but keep me sane Don’t fuck me like that bitch cocaine Then promise me I’ll be okay Show me there’s a better way Calm me through this endless night Pick me up and hold me high I don’t know what you need All I have is what you see The love I had, better than most A girl I love, she’s now a ghost I drown her in the Andaman Don’t look back, don’t give in On Railay Beach with my friend, Ryan Laughing cause we’re fucking high Gaze up at a mackerel sky Satellites that blink and spy Calling out each others’ lies Stories we mark classified Talkin’ ‘bout the by-and-by Place bets on the rising tide Holler as the girls pass by We think we’re acting superfly It’s more like drunk and super sly Magic shakes, we’ve lost our minds Fall into an endless night Get back up and get on high I got all that I want All I need is what I got

Fields 03:35
“Fields” Written by Jameel Farruk We’re kicking up a dirt road Paddies and sundowners in Siem Reap The velvet in the sunset Reminds me of a woman from N'orleans I wish we had just one more day She’s driving out to Cali I wore my heart out on my sleeve I hope she’s thinking of me And only me We’re kicking up a dirt road Paddies and sundowners on motorbikes I’m posting on my Insta She’s peepin’ on my Insta She’s sendin’ likes She texted me last night She’s having her a good time She’s doin’ yoga in the hills While soaking up the sunshine She’s doin’ fine I really hope I see her again I really hope I see her again I really hope I see her again I really hope I see her again Till then I walk my way I talk my talk I text my game Keep a cutie in play She sticks to her moves She got a rebel heart It’s got me stickin’ like glue How she plays me so cool

Views 04:04
“Views” Written by Jameel Farruk You are from somewhere I am from nowhere We don’t care I’m feeding you lines You’re chewing on my words Back and forth again I’m hanging on a groove It leads me to a view Where my head comes clear (My head is so clear) Gunung Raya Easy on the eyes Wishing you were here I’ve taken up control I find myself a view I find myself a view I find myself a view I find myself a view As beautiful as you I find myself a view I find myself a view I find myself a view As beautiful as you ēk, dui, tin, chā

H K 07:58
“H K” Written by Jameel Farruk Daydream in the harbour (Daydream in the harbour) Where are you, where did you go? We saw her up from the peak We watch as she drifts to sea Victoria calls for you Victoria calls for me Cross Vickie on the ol’ Star Ferry We’re off to Kowloon side Hitch a ride to the Peninsula In a brewster green Rolls Royce Libations are a fine dilemma I help you make a choice Sunsets behind a grand clock tower The Star. she blows her horn Vickie’s stirring up the seas any minute It’s time we hop on board A melody whips around my ear It strikes a perfect chord I’ve been running through a daydream Chasing after a melody I’ve been running through a daydream Chasing after a melody A melody that plays Like puppets in the rain A melody that sounds Like cartoons in the clouds I’ve been running through a daydream Before it fades into a memory I’ve been running through a daydream Before it fades into a memory Memories, they fade Like stones that turn to dust The memories I’ve made Are never quite enough A daydream slips away

“The Lost Ones” Written by Jameel Farruk Dragonflies and Christmas lights A German girl cuts through the night Strike a match and light her cigarette Two shots, two limes, that’s the plan She licks the salt from my hand Lost in Hanoi with a German girl We end up dancing in the street How sweet this world can be At twelve AM she’ll be twenty nine She grabs my beard, laughs as she pulls it tight I taste the salt from her bottom lip It’s getting late and I wanna go to bed I wanna take her to bed Lost in Hanoi with a German girl We end up dancing in the street How sweet this world can be How sweet this world can be Lost in Hanoi with a German girl We end up dancing in the street How sweet this world can be
