Swansea is a step-out, fun electro-swing tune with gypsy horn-lines, filtered saw-tooth bass and an upbeat inspiring message! Swansea is also a peace song for the middle east and features lyrics that pay dues to yoda and my Gran Hilda. You know it makes sense! Is it? Is it? check the youtube video for this song at www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-iVeiEhwZE


You know me come from Swansea
Is it is it?
Hmmm? (Yoda)
In'ts it?
You know me granny's name is..
Is it is it?
Isnt it?

Was it a visit from the wise men three?
Are we descended from a chimpanzee?
Did we really fall from grace?
Whats the story of the human race?

Sending love sending love to the jews
Don’t really want anybody to lose
Giving love giving love to the arab
Hope we rise all rise like a scarab

But is there just one way to mystic?
I’m looking me for a new holistic
Kiss the earth in a thousand ways
Im living free and I love my days


Here we are in the promised land
Feel the love while I hold your hand
Elohim all around we see
(Its) only talk that we’re not free

So is it this is it that who knows?
We surrounded by sisters and bros
If we know our history
We’ll give in to the mystery
