REIMAGINE EDEN Taught me how to turn blue into gold Taught me how to see through these old dusty lies Something starting to brew Of a different kind A little revolution’s good for the soul sometimes They’ll try use your brain To Harvest hearts to half a man Don’t let them touch your pain but Or eclipse your deep down strangeness I feel the people waking up today I feel the people waking today Unexpected mothership Building with my brothers this Eden reimagined Father of the sun eclipsed Time to uncover this Raw as a bloody fist Weak as newborn Relying on the one who lifts Us up and breaks us down Can we redefine purpose Surrender to the sound of the circus? Simple Gypsy young witch growing with me Ancient return to the now Fate kissed me I fainted Taught me how to turn blue into gold Taught me how to see through these old dusty lies Something starting to brew Of a different kind A little revolution’s good for the soul sometimes Revolution of the mind mankind creative alchemy Make art outside of your gallery not defined by salary How can we Exchange pain without the fame and the cash? If the cycle don’t change It’s just the same as the past I’m looking at the future present Truth and the essence The lesson the stress and the blessing Movement progression A new collective of collection connection Loving the beauty of my imperfection Some carry the yolk with a rope around cattle neck Words spoke provoke to show Emperors broke on a palace steps I focus on ideas that are dope but haven’t happened yet Like my homies living in the woods With babies in a bassinet Watch your mouth Everybody trying to be somebody Talking tough But you crumble when you’re all alone Shut your mouth Cause we’re all nobody Just a house For spirit to reanimate Reimagine Eden

THROWING BONES Ragdoll torn need more yarn Lose my head trying to hold on Apocalyptic I’m reborn And the bones don’t lie Throwing them bones Ragdoll there’s someone behind you! Ragdoll, there’s no one behind On the mast of the ship Like a master chimp Hit the affidavit with the acronym It stands for I don’t sit down when the storm comes Way we make ‘em dance When you know that these are war drums The breeze might blow a strange whisper Lights might flicker you’ll feel it when it gets under your skin Ragdoll there’s someone behind you! Ragdoll, there’s no one behind Getting out of bed with a big yawn Sitting on yo ass getting fat, huh? I pity that rich boy yessir Cause money don’t help when you die All the time we waste on expensive things Trying to dance with extravagance again Will it become you? Ragdoll there’s someone behind you! Ragdoll, there’s no one behind They can’t see the mountain That only you can climb So you climb your mountain And I’ll climb mine Alone together now.

TAME MY STRANGE: Holding me gently like these reigns I wasn’t ready for her melody I’m telling you, I’ve changed This memory is framed By the same mind That is entertained by Villains and the savior People trying to tame my strange What you know about that thunder? Really though, got that hunger Belly ache walk like hunter Peace though, enemy I love ya But if you cross the beast gon’ gut ya Piece in my teeth From the feast of the under..world As I curl by the fire in the tundra Wolf taught me how to cry when I want to My old identity has changed I got a hunger and it’s killing me It’s filling me with shame We hang our heads the same With the same eyes Circling the great fire Preying on the prayer pyre People trying to tame my strange If I don’t like ya But the photosynthesis still excites ya We could go the limit with reuniting All so stubborn like kids a fighting Hid the lightning, I’m tapping in Strike again The return of the happiness It begins Always with a woman with a grin Always in the shallows with the fin Hollow as a bone till I bend till I break Till I let her back in here again Till I AM, I will never be free.

Half A Man 04:53
HALF A MAN Are you a part of me Or a beautiful monster in my imagination? Falling from both my eyes You held this torch for me All the years when I was following you blind Only half a man Don’t wait till the cops be calling And the ambulance singing in the morning light It’s never goodbye And that’s alright Two hearts and both beats skip Really don’t fit together And this forever is too short now Really want to sit together And block out the world that’s been making me sad Scattered distracted like half of a man And I’m gone stressing Cigarettes just to get me calm Lessons not learned That’s awkward when my son smiles But I’m off earth high In a pink hearse Trauma got me injured And I medicate but I’ll never run away from this world I’m with you Are you a part of me Or a beautiful monster in my imagination? Falling from both my eyes You held this torch for me All the years when I was following you blind Only half a man FInd change in my confines In my constraints with a calm mind I can find strength when I’m weak Welding soul blades in this hell fire, seek Other ways to get my wiggles out Nightmares coming vicious when I’m sober Trying to understand what it’s about Squirming in my personality Words limiting reality I smoke to escape harsh gravity Double edged cause when the fun is dead Poison takes its toll Take it too far you’ll end up martyr rock and roll That’s why I quit drinking Been thinking clearer still in prison though Addiction takes control Of every action slowly killing me I know Are you a part of me Or a beautiful monster in my imagination? Falling from both my eyes You held this torch for me All the years when I was following you blind Only half a man Don’t wait till the cops be calling And the ambulance singing in the morning light It’s never goodbye And that’s alright Too close to that landslide New ghost when my man died On a noose from the tree With the Lucifer leaves Leave me alone in my bones a disease That’s that moth to light shit Cost your life quick Icarus love that shine a bit too much He can’t quit, trying to ice it Cold shower, red eyed temptation Got the best of me Trying to be jedi But then the other half of me Laughed at me and lit up a cigarette casually And said, “we’re all gonna die, we’re all gonna die, Live happily..”

FRENZY IN YOUR EYES Tease me with your morning paper Wonder why I’m waking in these cold sweats Hello neighbor, I can see the frenzy in your eyes Meet your maker Burning through this tape looking for god’s breath Fingerprints, fingerprints ain’t mine.. Bit by bit by bit I wanna get My fingerprints on hundred dollar bills Wanna play but not for free The price you pay to believe in dreams She can’t even sleep without me And a dream is not a dream without her by my side Bit by bit by bit I wanna get My fingerprints on hundred dollar bills Too much time too much bloodshed To not give a fuck I be doing what the drum said You can’t tell me nothing I be running funk drunk Head first singing like everywhere is a church Trying to merge money and dreams that shit hurts Dig you for your soul still need the gold purse But everything starts in the cold dirt Love you so much, watch what we grow here and show the world like.. Bit by bit by bit I wanna get My fingerprints on hundred dollar bills She can’t even sleep without me And a dream is not a dream without her by my side

GAS MASK AND FLOWERS Gas mask and flowers that grow in the shade Called me a coward in the end I prove brave Broken only to receive Sand turns to towers and nothing remains Building this fire it started to rain Broken only to receive In the daytime hid well Frankenstein To the sound of the bells now I’m breaking down Trying to protect my little bit of sunshine My monster be running from The village mind Take time To cry it’s gonna take hell just to open me Each time I die It gets better than I thought it be Simply free Till I’m simply free Get caught in throats This is not what you thought Defined by your soul You are not what you bought Pink hearse cause death is a hoot Soft as breath of the flute Back of your neck getting goosebumps We never met I knew ya When my blue blood turns fuchsia Tell em I loved you like the buffalo Sweet mystery I don’t know my history I be feeling out of place Like Justice without the bass or Oscar without guitar tired of running in place Take time To cry it’s gonna take hell just to open me Each time I die It gets better than I thought it be Simply free Till I’m simply free Gas mask and flowers that grow in the shade Called me a coward in the end I prove brave Broken only to receive

about

When Zach met Justice, there was destiny in the air. Both pioneers in their own right, they aligned to create music for the "Daily Flows" project, which was an experiment in constant collaborative creation involving writing, recording, filming and releasing a song / video every night for 212 days. Out of this fertile, creative momentum, the seeds were planted and eventually grew into the “RAGDOLL” project. Recorded at the Skipper Room on analog tape machines, each song was written and tracked live in less than a day.

"RAGDOLL" is a modern day Pinocchio story, a hero myth about becoming a real human in conscious collaboration with spirit and not just a puppet for the collective over-culture. Created pre-covid, songs like "Reimagine Eden" and "Gas Mask & Flowers" seemed to be prophetic in nature and after maturing in the shadows for over a year, the music is more relevant than ever. Enjoy this maiden voyage adventure and stay tuned for "RAGDOLL II" coming soon..
