Passport: FlowEthics Collab with Re:plus on “Let the Story Tell”‘

Japanese Jazz/Hip-Hop outfit, Re:plus, have tapped the talents of another Asian-American act – none other than Flow Ethics. Once you think about it, FE seems like a perfect fit for a feature on a Re:plus production… they did compete on Kollaboration Acoustic a couple years back after all. And you know what? They make a strong a team as any as the song, “Let the Story Tell” is one of the best tracks I’ve heard yet from the California group. Take a listen below! This is from the album Ordinary Landscape, available in Japan.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hook – Zanna (Rosanna Gamboa)

Sometimes we find it all to well/

Maybe it’s time to let the story tell/

Even though you may not speak/

Your eyes are all you need to talk to me/

Verse 1 – Romen (Raldy Coloma)

So we working and we building til we comfortable/

For the fairly odd stars like cosmos/

And we not defined by the amount of time/

But we seem to use our lies as our line of fire/

But these nine to fives got our minds surprised/

And suppressed to even have a good grind at life/

So my words on a paper speak light like a saber/

Give advice, I’m gonna right all the wrongs that I made up/

I’m a stay up I’m a keep it I’m a do it til I reach it/

This is what I call that “figure it speeching”/

It’s deaf tone plays in movies like touchstones/

Engrave my expression on a rock like rushmore/

To mush-on keep my foot in the front door/

To run off like a sentence that doesn’t make sense/

But it’s sentenced in your head/

To remember it’s FE and replus from Japan, let’s go!!

Hook – Zanna (Rosanna Gamboa)

Sometimes we find it all to well/

Maybe it’s time to let the story tell/

Even though you may not speak/

Your eyes are all you need to talk to me/

Verse 2 – sDot (Samuel Labuen)

I can feel the pressure, it’s getting closer now/

Ain’t no second guessing, how am I suppose to sound/

When everybody trying to push you around/

Then they see you on stage, and try to give you a pound/

But I give daps back, you ask why?/

Cause eye for an eye, can make the world blind/

And I ain’t about that, I’m about tracks/

ain’t about stacks, I’m about facts/

Oh you can’t see, just hit the playback/

On this CD, get you eyes back/

Tryna find strength, what your life lack/

Gotta learn to ride your own path, no high jack/

Keep em on beat like a hi hat do/

See me on the street, say hi my dude/

Push up to the sky, to your heart be true/

Weather this  storm, I’ll be there for you/

Verse 3 – T (Tristan Reparejo)

Open your eyes up to a new day/

Leave the past behind, let’s never lose faith/

No matter what the grind, let’s never lose strength/

And we goin ride together until the blues break/

Hardship, hard work, make my back strong/

Hard beats, hard verse, make the track strong/

Storm coming, never running, stay head strong/

Never die, either you with or you’re dead wrong/

Cause I ain’t the type to up and leave/

I take my art to the heart, through the pen I bleed/

And this is real life never make believe/

And you just blind to the fact, but imma make you see that/

No matter how hard the climb is/

Still shine through all kinds of climate/

Stand strong, the spirit keep on rising/

Until we reach the top we surviving. We alive man/

Hook – Zanna (Rosanna Gamboa)

Sometimes we find it all to well/

Maybe it’s time to let the story tell/

Even though you may not speak/

Your eyes are all you need to talk to me/
