about

Beneath the Shallow is a 2-song collaboration with our good friend and producer 9 Theory, who we have wanted to work with for some time. This EP is a direct response to the vibe and superficiality that can often permeate the mainstream festival circuit, particularly throughout the last decade and the rise of EDM. The EP tackles the intense and all too human issues of depression and drug abuse, but in a beautiful, raw, deep and touching way.

Track Name: Crack In The Sky [Beneath The Shallow EP]
Intro:
If you lie here while I sleep
Would you notice if I don't dream
Would you tether my body
to the bedpost with your heart strings

Chorus:
Cold stone lies
While we awake
Slow rise
A crack in the sky
Your eyes
Dried lakes
No lies

Verse 1:
So meet my principal
Not interested in principle
Just your inner growth
Searching for that inner flow
Better brighten up
More important lighten up
They take until their cups runnith over
Never good enough
Inspiration stimuli
Information never lies
Lying on the train tracks
Feet walk across the sky
I’ve been a beggar
Had a woman be my savior
Homey the only way I'll change
Comes direct through my behavior
To satisfy is a status lie
How can u expect to know what I need just from passing by
We enter every conversation through contemplation
What can I leave you with
More important leave a gift
And if the roles reversed
Would you feel it when I split
Let's split it down the middle
One for you
One for atom
Now let it ride out
Integration vibe out
Side out wide eyed
Idlewyd-ing lie about

Chorus:
Cold stone lies
While we awake
Slow rise
A crack in the sky
Your eyes
Dried lakes
No lies

Verse 2:
Gone athlete in the backseat
Got that Blackstreet bumpin’
Last we checked
We was a-ok-hey now, how ya doing?
You decided to run
You despise riding shot gun
Wonder what it meant well
What it meant well
When I wonder which hole with the largest bucket
F#####
If i could spit fire, maybe we'd match
Struck it
Cut without a leak
Thought to make it reach into the filter
Not yell on the past
Wither till we make dawn
Swell it in my grasp gone
Repeat but it's all next week
Now it's kinda nice here
Bright clear
At least I hear the radio
Blind light
Sign strike
Sign spike in the night like a flashlight
Stone skipped through the surface
Bone picked, slicked, picked-picked make it worship
3rd eye can't observe it
Impervious to slights
Fly this kite
Bare-fist
Bare-hug
Kiss
Make up
Wake certain
But I bare this burden
Shake up
Playfight like I'm Durden
Cybal
Dribble-dribble pass
Scribble on the pavement
Guess it's downhill
When the wave went by
Aloha
I know now I don't own her
I'm a ranger, lone star
Thought I only needed one bar

Chorus:
Cold stone lies
While we awake
Slow rise
A crack in the sky
Your eyes
Dried lakes
No lies
Track Name: Warm In The Light [Beneath The Shallow EP]
Warm In The Light by Vokab Kompany & 9 Theory

Rob Verse 1:
8 years getting close to a decade
Use to cook ya grilled cheese and a lemonade
Member days in December at the casa
It was you, me, G and our mama (and E)
At the time might of thought I was a little tough
I tried to hold you in the snow, make you give up
But oh no not you
You were way to cool
We called you B
Bee like a bumble
C how we sting
When our wings gave us trouble
But it was fun when we flew
Run, run me and you
‘Till the breeze felt new
And it was fun with the crew
We used to play Kung Fu and break fake bamboo
New shoes every Easter so we looked rich
Old clothes so the mama gave a new stitch

Burke Verse 2:
We growing up, big schemes
Watching as the jet skis
Intermesh with our jet streams
I’ll let you know that the best dreams
Be the stress free
Type of best me
And a belly full of hope
And I ain’t gotta use a telescope
To calculate the message
And tell you what you need to grow
Between your past and your present
Is that you shouldn’t waste a second
To forgive your transgressions, listen
Took a lot of burning bridges
And kicking in the doors ‘till they swingin’ on the hinges
And roof top singing for bringin’ in a new day
Watch the sun rise high over crystal bay

Burkey Bridge:
And it seems like the time we all got high
Summertime Tahoe, 4th of July
We all got a reason for the things we do
9 Theory Chorus (repeat x2):
Don’t be the one
Not having fun
When there’s a sun burning bright
It’s warm in the light
Turn it around
Stop looking down from such incredible heights
It’s warm in the light

Rob Verse 3:
Truth is you were born with a good life
Hard to know which friends would be worth while
Just kids trying to find another planet
Who'd a thought that cha find another habit
Back then it was nothing but a little fun
That all changed when you found that prescription
Can't understand you could love it more than us
But then again it was something that I never touched
A soft high in the clutch there was no plan
Went from pills, to a pipe, to a spoon man
Truth stands in the back 'till it's called up
Until then all your talks just stuff
God damn man hoping that you'll catch a clue
But me and you will see it through, never make do
We had a view of the world baby all smiles
Just a child and you're forever worthwhile

9 Theory Chorus (repeat x2):
Don’t be the one
Not having fun
When there’s a sun burning bright
It’s warm in the light
Turn it around
Stop looking down from such incredible heights
It’s warm in the light
