[ RECORD ]
CONTAINS :

... that subscribe, to the old world, keep on vibing and sliding off. What the monkey will see, the monkey brain will do, so try your best to resist, the light at the end of the tunnel, too. I will sip my tea,while you go ahead and do you,

do

you

baby.

OH, MY DARLING, I KNOW IT'S HARD. TEMPERATURE RISING, BUT IT'S COLD. DON'T YOU WORRY, I GOT YOUR BACK. THE WORLD IS CRAZY ON THE NEWS.

OH, MY DARLING, I KNOW IT'S HARD. TEMPERATURE RISING, BUT IT'S COLD. DON'T YOU WORRY, I GOT YOUR BACK. THE WORLD IS CRAZY ON THE NEWS.

OH, MY DARLING, I KNOW IT'S HARD. TEMPERATURE RISING, BUT IT'S COLD. DON'T YOU WORRY, I GOT YOUR BACK. THE WORLD IS CRAZY ON THE NEWS.

OH, MY DARLING, I KNOW IT'S HARD. TEMPERATURE RISING, BUT IT'S COLD. DON'T YOU WORRY, I GOT YOUR BACK. THE WORLD IS CRAZY ON THE NEWS.

Oh, my darling, don’t worry your

mind. what goes on outside, is never here. Let “the crazy” carry on, close the blinds, forget it all, tonight. Oh, my darling, I know it’s hard. nothing ever is what it seems. Let them go crazy - wild outside. chill out cool, with me - tonight. baby. tonight

LYRICS
ARTWORK

What the monkey will see,

                   the monkey brain will do.

so try your best to invest in buying boxes in the empty gift shop, too.

I will sip my tea, and not say a word,

                  do you baby

                   tell me your lies.

If all old is right, all new is wrong.

keep on insisting on stories about times when you were not around,

         it was much better back then,

              everybody loved each other, and everybody was a friend

Baby don’t tell me what to be,

I be a dinosaur but I’ll be free,

I do whatever I want you see,

and I catch you later if you can catch up with me.

what goes up must come down

what goes up must come down

I walk, I crawl, I do whatever I want,

stay in the back I be in the front,

and you can say whatever you want

I won’t listen though...

and we can talk about it when I hit the goal.

What goes up must come down

look around .

what goes up must come down

lick the ground .

outro

I be a lion, a tiger, a dinosaur,

I do whatever I want, and then some more.

and while you’re occupied and defining me,

I unlock another level, another key.

so keep it moving, what goes up must come down,

and take away what’s mine, I come around,

and paint another new world, and if you’re nice...

I’ll let you come for a twirl.

what goes up must come down

look around

what goes up must come down

lick the ground

YOU NEED THIS. IT'S SO YOU. IT'S MAD ILL. and - IT'LL MAKE YOU LOOK COOLER TOO. ONLY A MILLION DOLLARS, A FREAKING STEAL. THEY WERE SON INNOVATIVE -

NAMNED IT THE FUCKING WHEEL.

v2 THEY TRY TO TELL YOU, WHO TO BE. AS IF

Baby don’t tell me what to be,

I be a dinosaur but I’ll be free,

I do whatever I want you see,

and I catch you later if you can catch up with me.

what goes up must come down

what goes up must come down

I walk, I crawl, I do whatever I want,

stay in the back I be in the front,

and you can say whatever you want

I won’t listen though...

and we can talk about it when I hit the goal.

What goes up must come down

LISTEN TO THE RECORD

LISTEN TO TALK & AUDIO COMMENTARY

The music was written and recorded in New York summer/fall 2016 and released summer 2017. Produced by Sean C & Lv (Jay-Z, Dead Prez), co-produced by KISSEY and executively produced by A-trak and Nick Catchdubs. The recordings are mixed by Blair Wells and mastered by Tatsuya Sato.

In this talk and commentary you can hear KISSEY speak about how 'Unplug The Delusional Monkey' came about, while she gives insight about her journey and process. You will also be able to gain a deeper understanding to what some of the songs are about and the concepts behind them. This intimate commentary is recorded in her living room in New York (2017).

 
WHAT IS THE PROJECT ABOUT ?

This is a project that was sketched, written and created during the timeframe of December 2015 to 2017. It is released as an audio recording (album:EP) on Fool's Gold Records.

 

On this page you will be able to find out more about the thoughts around the subjects it touches upon; information, data and format. The overall intention with the project is to present a certain perspective and to inspire [You] to disconnect from external views, expand, question, and find out internally who you are and how you relate to things around you. Macro problems (global) are changed on a micro level (domestic) and we all hold the key to editing our world and can claim the power which is rightfully ours. Whatever we decide - from small everyday decisions to larger events -  changes the equation of what we experience in life; the overall outcome. [You] and [I] constantly manifest the reality we live in and surround ourselves with (actively or inactively).

To listen to this record and experience it you don't have to feel as I do, nor do you need to agree with these opinions - But let this record be an inspiration for you to explore and investigate what is important to you - what it means to be the individual drop in the ocean that  [You] are as a person living in this world. There is nobody who has the same perspective as you do, and when we understand and can hold that knowing - it becomes part of our power.

 

Made with Love from all of us involved, for you to experience, 

KISSEY.

ABOUT THE VIDEO FOR UNPLUG

The video for 'Unplug' is directed by Nick Ace and Mari Juliano. KISSEY explains the concept behind the video to The Fader:

"Over email, KISSEY told The FADER how the vibe she captured recording the song carried over to the music video. "I met with [director] Nick Ace and told him about how I was working on transferring a lot of energy that I was honing in meditation to creating the EP itself, and how this was a completely new way of creating for me," she said. "As we continued to talk - he taught me about how photographers in the late 19th century did extensive exposure-experiments to "prove" that other dimensions existed and how he had been extremely interested with this lately. He wanted to translate that energy in to this video. It all became such a beautiful correlation to me personally; I was reading about String Theory and the theory of an existing multiverse, and I feel is the same vibration of proving something we yet can not see."

So many tries, so many goodbyes,

so many words.

so many nights, so many stories,

so many hurts.

so many times we never found each other,

and,

so many nights we ran away from one another.

so many times, I thought that this is who I am,

that this is love life,

and you were my man.

so many times I catched your heart from slamming,

into the sidewalk, into the floor.

So many questions, and so many thoughts,

so many times we both the truth fought,

so many days we thought that this - was love,

that there was nothing better and nothing above.

that true love is drama, and always hard,

and only for the tough ‘cause it leaves you with scars.

how delusional

how delusional...

My heart, like broken glass,

can’t make, endless time last.

I’ll survive, and you’ll be fine,

and this ain’t love...

and I’ll survive, and you’ll be fine,

and this ain’t love...

it’s the end.

 

Delusional.

Delusional.

And go ahead and pretend that you can tell me another lie, and go ahead and pretend that you can tell me another lie, that everything was much better back then, before you were around or even had a friend,come on. tell me your lies,

                                                             go ahead,

                                                              tell me your lies.
