Lyrics

ROBAMA


* I've been living on the edge
For a bit and quite some time
Trying hard to figure out
Your little mind

* Ive been doomed by your love
And I've tried to let it pass me by
But Hey who am I
To even try

CHORUS: You need to look in the mirror
And try to realize
And maybe you can just maybe
See the reflection of your lies

* You think you can walk away
With your Arrogance and Pride
Fooling the world with your
Sweet and poisoning shrine

* Ya habibi albi ma'ak
Wa ana aisha fi gharamak
Mouch fakrak wana karhak
Wi tayha fi sarabak

CHORUS: REPEAT

BRIDGE: ROBAMA...ROBAMA...ROBAMA

CHORUS: REPEAT

great original sound....very cool musical interplay

Absolutely LOVE this song. Dug the vocal in a B -- I -- G way. Excellent power, projection, modulation, attitude, phrasing, tone (what else is there? - oh yeah, judgment about what to put where). Liked the unique sound with that sort of Arabic sounding scale near the beginning and that popped up a couple more times like around 2:01 and right after that where the vocal hits -- "You need to..." That just nailed it so very solid. Hope you're not offended, but vocal reminded me a little (a little) of Grace Slick at her best, but with more power.
