Back to the Roots

Album Notes

​Back to the Roots is a recording that encompasses Mosey Beat's  original sound. The mix of witty lyrics, soaring guitar, groovin' bass and fat drum beats developed a landscape of earthy sounds for this album.  

With hints of Rock, Jazz and Reggae  Back to the Roots possesses the feel of a modern jam-band but with structures that resemble classic rock music.  This recording puts it all out front for the listener without drawing your ear to one instrument in particular.

Special Thanks to:

Ben Matos - Former Bassist/Co-Founder

Lyrics

 
 

BNS

Chillin' like a villain and I'm ready to play

I've got my guitar in my hands

and I just wanna say

That my days always filled with darkness and demons so if I'm a little late

you know where I'll be then

Rollin up a pinner sparking up that tree man, awh yeah

Let's hear it for these east coast stoners

call em' up on a telephone sayin'

what I got is what you need

Just hit me up when your fienin' for the green, I heard Bradley back in 2006 and I thought

man I could play that shit

So I made it my mission to fix my own ambition and now I'm always playing like I was wishing

in my lyrical mission I search for precision keep adding on shit like it was addition-ally

I wanna thank the fellas who without wanna another we would not be who we are

time is only a state of mind, it's just a state of mind and the rhyme is always right on time 

it's just too easy to find

All I ask of you is what I need to know

am I gonna do or should I pack my shit and go

a whispers all I need to stay so tell me to go and I'm on my way

Hell I'm on my way

I don't go looking for materialistic things

to fill my world

I just fill it up with the peace and love and you can be the whole damn world

cause one and one and one is you

and if you are one well I am two

then are we all one really really true?

Is it true I'm one with the universe writing down

a sick verse everybody's suffering

from their own curse

I keep on living like a rebirth being a kid acting like a stupid jerk just remember material dies and nature will enter your mind

remember material dies and nature can enter your mind

All I ask of you is what I need to know

am I gonna do or should I pack my shit and go

a whispers all I need to stay so tell me to go and I'm on my way

Hell I'm on my way

 

Like the words that I feel and the beats that I kill I'm an assassin every style that I pass in

take a little bit store it in my head and then I let it all out nobody notices the words I said

but DJ's and MC's don't mean shit to me

they beg and say please don't battle me but I'm trying to be the best

untouched by all the rest this is your captain speaking and no this ain't a test all broads aboard your bound to get wet 

how about that recital make me an idol if you want a brand new star Mosey Beat's gonna make it far.

All I ask of you is what I need to know

am I gonna do or should I pack my shit and go

a whispers all I need to stay so tell me to go and I'm on my way

Hell I'm on my way

Exist

No time is wasted until you

stop to think about it just

two hands on a clock saying tic-toc sit down to examine yourself

you've got two hands to use and legs to walk eyes to see and a mouth to talk

you've got ears to hear all the things that I'm singing and a body to gel with

your nose to smell with

yourself to express to us so go on and do it in the time you're givin' as long as we're still here

we might as well be livin'

All that I'm sayin' no matter what you're doin' gotta be happy with yourself

this world is the only place we really know at all

now that you've heard me

let's sing our own new song

wear our hearts on our sleeves

cause we just want to love

 

I meet new people all the time

they tell me that their life is fine

but they're hiding I can see it

oh I just can't quite perceive it so if you're open with me I'll be open to you and we can help you to get on through

the one thing you need to know, nothing really happens at all

even when someone's remark makes your skin crawl, just remember words are something small

take the negativity flip to creativity

All that I'm sayin' no matter what your doin' gotta be happy with yourself

this world is the only place we really know at all

now that you've heard me

let's sing our own new song

wear our hearts on our sleeves

cause we just want to love

 

Cars keep passing people keep

walking nobody's stoppin' nope no talkin' today

all they wanna do is stare at their phone they want to make this escape from home,

but the one thing we don't realize

you're stuck in this vessel with out a doubt

so you might as well just push it then kick it brother

 

All that I'm sayin' no matter what your doin' gotta be happy with yourself

this world is the only place we really know at all

now that you've heard me

let's sing our own new song

wear our hearts on our sleeves

cause we just want to love

 
 

Harmonic Possibility
 

Everything that I know I learned

from my eyes

at least that's what I'm told to believe

but if all that's true how to explain

I can play this game

with a blindfold and know the road to go

is that fate or destiny

I don't know, so pity me

 

The way the vision lights up my sky

when I close my eyes it's like

a thousand dancing flames

and which one to chose how to fuel the fire,

take the darkest route,

quickest way to go insane

 

Vibration combination of this constant

want to feeling

vibration continuation of this constant

want to feel it

where is the love? It's hiding in each and every one of us

I've got the love teach the youth peace love compassion focus

It's a whole new world full of possibility

let's choose the best and we will rebuild it

Stretch for the light because with each darkened choice

it gets you feeling good like you knew you would

but after a while like you shouldn't have

and there's no turning back times stuck on this track like a train

don't get in its way or down you'll go.

Inside Intuition

Kick off your shoes and get real loose

we are the Mosey Beat

and if you're tappin' you're feet

could you get on up out of you're seat and keep movin' to the groove the time you never lose

you never had it before in the first place it keeps on comin' and goin' the same rate

we are all just hear and now,

chillin' in my own hrydiam

Got a little bit of blues and I'll mix it in

quite a bit of truth sing from within

a tiny bit of compassion and you got rhythm

all that's left to do is all above, just add the love

 

A self proclaimed tamer of the dames

I've loved everyone, just the same

tried relationships I got tired of that shit, played the single life and I'm a god damn hit

all I'm searching for is that old tall tale of love that's real between a boy and a girl

do you think I'll find it? In time I will but for now let's get together I'm ready to chill

Got a little bit of blues and I'll mix it in

quite a bit of truth sing from within

a tiny bit of compassion and you got rhythm

all that's left to do is all above, just add the love

 

Why is it always about the love?

you ask me that everyday

my answer is very simple its my only way

so keep on going to everything in your head your gonna get out

probably go insane, better listen to

your heart instead.

Got a little bit of blues and I'll mix it in

quite a bit of truth sing from within

a tiny bit of compassion and you got rhythm

all that's left to do is all above, just add the love

 
 

Give

The path I walk it winds twisting turning every corner of my mind

I see beauty all the time from a blue jays song to the conversation moving along

let the stresses weigh on me and then I'll take it in and bury it deep

some days it gets too much so I sit down with my breath and I

I wake up to see a flower in it's bud ready to bloom from the change to sun from moon

taking night and day as the same place where your shadow hides true love shows it's face

when the shadow spreads it seed you see the beauty and know love is what it needs

take the promises we make be sincere,

be real clear, we all know

 

I never thought love could be any more than what this give and take?

When I'm all out I could take it

take it just as I please

and when the lovin' return to me I'll be sure to spread my wings

give it right back,

right back to the love that makes me sing

I wake up to see a flower in it's bud ready to bloom from the change to sun from moon

taking night and day as the same place where your shadow hides true love shows it's face

when the shadow spreads it seed you see the beauty and know love is what it needs

take the promises we make be sincere,

be real clear, we all know

Nighttime Brother

Started back when I was young

7 years old and learning to drum

I had a rhythm flowing through my veins,

all of a sudden it opened up my brain

started up this click track

and I could not reverse that

I learned what I could do with

1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4

They keep on plastering

images on TV screens

trying to control your life

but don't take heed to all the lies

where your at is where your soul resides

People always ask what style did I choose

I cannot tell you but I'll tell you what I do

I like to rap and I like to sing

but I like a little bit of everything

and I'll try new things until they're old

and I'll still be hot while your veins are running cold.

They keep on plastering

images on TV screens

trying to control your life

but don't take heed to all the lies

where your at is where your soul resides

 

Got a lot of things I'm grateful for,

Blair on the drums shaking the floor

I got Dave laying down the licks

so I can give myself a little kick

music is where I'm at what I love is what I do

oh god I've got to go gotta keep on going to

They keep on plastering

images on TV screens

trying to control your life

but don't take heed to all the lies

where your at is where your soul resides

 

WANNABEYOU

Wrong coast right state of mind I'm chilling east side almost all the time

people wanna always be right, thinking they can tell you how to make the music tight

but I live day to day playing shit my own way, you've gotta be yourself can't rely on no one else

no no no and I'll say

 

Call me what you like call me what you will

call me wannabe is that what you tell me

if i'm just a wannabe would you

pick up my guitar

show me a style I can groove to,

wanna be moving to a groove

who do you think you are,

calling me a wannabe

I rap circles around your head, then I'll play guitar instead

hop straight to the keys if it's what you need play a beat on the drums

Blair's got it covered for me

to top it all of I'll sing my favorite song a melody about my favorite green, miss mary jane

miss everyone knows her name

Call me what you like call me what you will

call me wannabe is that what you tell me

if i'm just a wannabe would you

pick up my guitar

show me a style I can groove to,

wanna be moving to a groove

who do you think you are,

calling me a wannabe

 

I like chillin' cruisin' maybe a little boozin' smoking jokin' I hear time is what I'm losing

but we are all just here spending our days getting lost and lost in all that haze

swing back and forth and to and fro I feel my skateboard starting to flow

master of rhythm a poet formed in time I keep coming up with rhymes that seem to be fine

like the women my eyes are drawn to, my name is Taylor how do you do?

Is it a little funky lovin' and out in the morning or do you need a man cause I just need a warning

to run run the other way, I've got no time to stay

Call me what you like call me what you will

call me wannabe is that what you tell me

if i'm just a wannabe would you

pick up my guitar

show me a style I can groove to,

wanna be moving to a groove

who do you think you are,

calling me a wannabe
