about

We are all one. We are connected. Whether we choose to see it or not, this is the way the universe is spun. Police violence against Black and Hispanic youth is a major issue in America. This song explores those violent, racial tensions through the prism of the cosmic truth, that we are one. You are me. And I am you. On some basic level of consciousness, being as connected as we are, violence committed against another is violence committed against oneself.

lyrics

Cosmic Struggle
Music & Lyrics by Stavros

Two Ham Sandwiches
On the edge of the Universe
Cosmic lights flashing pursuit
Chasing the Comet of Youth

I run you down
It's my Will
It's my Will

I run away
Seek to fade
From your gaze

Hustlin' & Holdin'
An enterprising neighbor
You call me, "Hood."
But I got the cosmic flavors

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

So, now we're tusslin' & fightin'
Clawing up from the bottom
Each atoms of stardust
Clashing in a fury of lust
To bring symmetry to a system of rust
Calcifying Will & Eroding Trust

I shoot at you
To bring you down,
Bring you down.

I die in vain
Another one slain,
Another one slain.

Round & Round & Round & Round & Round
The Sun we go
Friend, Family, Neighbor, or Foe
The Justice of Life, is the Kindness to Grow

Strongest Survive!
Strongest Survive!
Strongest Survive!
Strongest Survive!

Fuck all your kindness
Your blindness, your hope
The sappy society of Heavenly lights just can't cope
With the violence of Nature,
The impact of Change
The Will of a galaxy to Evolve beyond it's game.

Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' &
Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin'.
Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' &
Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin'.
Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' &
Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin'.
Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' & Spinnin' &
Spinnin' & Spinnin'; DJ!

Strongest Survive!
Strongest Survive!
Strongest Survive!

But you know
This is how it goes
Us. Them.

No, No, No, No!
It can... It can...

about

Cherokee Starlight Albuquerque, New Mexico

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
