released June 17, 2017

For those of you who don't yet know us, BURNT is a 100% independent band from California. We dabble in various styles of rebel music, from ska to reggae, hip hop, punk rock, high-life and so much more. We've been a band since 2003, and have independently produced seven albums and two mixtapes of original material, and this year we embarked on a recording project and Kickstarter campaign to produce Majestic Walrus.

In November 2016 we started recording this project, and like most BURNT albums this album has been a collaboration with many of our amazingly talented musical friends. This includes members of The Debonaires from Riverside, California, B-JAH from the band Beyond Rhythm, legendary hip hop artist Karmic Basis, Michael "Miguel" Happoldt from the Long Beach, CA based band Perro Bravo, Nathan McCoy AKA Rivel contributed on tracks all the way from the UK, and many more talented friends... special shout-out to our amazing friend and artist Jimmy Ovadia for contributing to the album artwork with a beautifully painted walrus on our kick drum head!

Once we were in the final stages of music production we launched a Kickstarter campaign to get support with pressing our very first vinyl record! To all of our supporters and fans who contributed, we cannot thank you enough for backing our hard work with your hard earned dollars.

This is the result-- our epic, double album, filled with twenty new BURNT songs that span the breadth of the burnt consciousness. Sit back, turn it up, and soak in the sounds of the Majestic Walrus...

it might not matter what i say

right now the window smashes
right now the window smashes

the best things in this life are free
glad that we already know
the more we love the higher up we go
right now the window smashes

the higher up we go the more we grow
that’s when our story gets untold
and when the stars and moon align
sun and shadow dance in perfect time

Track Name: The News
riot the juvenile prison "they"
divide the youth by religion
you fine if yous a christian
to the fire with tribe provisions
inspired a new division
ice against civilians
to entice a new collision
blueprints for ethnic cleansing
arm yourself they recommendin
if you ain't from wealth descendants
everyone just in ya
in ya business
callem social politicians
black n white
i ride the gray
i might just fuckin die today
police is shoootin
agents raid
the kids fear that they goin away
them actions cause a ricochet
the anchors steady getting paid
just to spew they fuckin opinion
political minions abusing the system
media fu fuckem
i'm reluctant never trust'em
ima rudy streets i lovem
shoot your television you suckas
ain't no okie dokes

rain clouds forming over there it’s a warning
they say a big storm is coming in the paper this morning
pictures of people they looking scared and they worried for once the rain it starts pouring now who can say when it’s stopping
the drops fall and they fall and the people they scatter they feel the thunder is clapping and look the windows they shatter and now they try to find shelter but they surrounded by water they wonder will it end the wind blows harder and harder

i see the people them suffer each and every day and i wonder how and when them gonna find a better way see when the one is subjugated ain’t nobody free then they go and throw fire and then the flames they grow higher
o’lawd

me nah liberal
me cool
we nah gentrified
no coon
we nah march wit silver spoon
we know tribal livin come soon
burn illusions
burn buffoons
burn statistics
burn the news
turn the odds against the evens
as the fool becomes the muse
radicalize the poor despised
antagonize with culture lies
i recognize the plot for suicide
i'm trippin conspiracy theorized
i'm livin proof of civil rights
or civil thoughts unbroght to light
i'm still a dream of Luther King
or further back a Garveyite
soon forward and back toward
unknown agendass
we rap for it
imprisoned souls they trap for it
Fox News still cookin the crack for it
the people rushin to buy
information televised
segregation on the rise again
i'm standing firm with fam n kin

in the news they are claiming they say they know what they saying they got the facts and they start blaming see the way they are framing: it’s us and them
ours and theirs
the sane and the crazy
the propaganda pumping in so that the truth starts getting hazy
politicians makes faces
turn up the fear to win races
i see they playing their part
in the palace insulated
now they pushing up war like it’s the only solution
everybody knows that war it was the start of this confusion

right now the people them suffer each and every day and i wonder how and when them gonna find a better way see when the one is subjugated ain’t nobody free then they go and throw fire and then the flames they grow higher
o’lawd

open up the mind’s eye to see a new proposition: a world that doesn’t include a single dominant human
each and every living soul in a respected position and the happyness of all is guiding every decision
when the health of the earth is never ever a question
every action the result of a meditated intention
the walls of the world they come a-tumblin’ down and in their place a peaceful people dancing feet on the ground

‘till then the people them suffer each and every day and i wonder how and when them gonna find a better way see when the one is subjugated ain’t nobody free then they go and throw fire and then the flames they grow higher
o’lawd

of things that i don’t know

everybody get high
everybody get high and touch the sky
everybody get low
everybody get low and touch the floor

everybody get low
everybody get low and touch the floor
you feeling good

Track Name: Downstream
guide me lord
to the river in the sky
oh let your water fall
please guide me lord
to the river in the sky
oh let your water fall

i’m flowin downstream
over rocks and leaves
keepin away from bad vibes and bad scenes
this stream seems to take me on a journey from stressed to blessed
time to swim against the current fight to your last breath
dive harder rise high
still blinded by fire
gotta keep you inspired
to see the stars in your eyes
to focus i have to breathe
in this catastrophe
fight against currents
so one day i can flow downstream

guide me lord
to the river in the sky
oh let your water fall
please guide me lord
to the river in the sky
oh let your water fall

dive deep and rock beats
i keep swimmin
tide lines and up hill climbs
part of the mission
keep pace and say grace
i give thanks
for every little ounce of success that i make
i write lines at times
smile lines defined
hour glass design
trickle in history
pressure can break fools or make tools
so you gotta fight on
i’m livin life by my own rules

guide me lord
to the river in the sky
oh let your water fall
please guide me lord
to the river in the sky
oh let your water fall
please guide me lord
to the river in the sky
let your water fall
Track Name: The Meaning
wise up

i follow that sound sound sound until i get some healing
and when it goes down down down

Track Name: Keep
i see there’s working to be done
and so i put away my pride
in this struggle for survival
we’ve got to stay alive
some dreams are full of maybes
so i push them to the side
and face this trouble everyday
and i take it all in stride
set my eyes on the horizon
straight steady for the sun
with this love light burning bright im gonna keep my family warm
and so there’s bread upon the table
and there’s rice upon the shelf
because i’m livin everyday
for something greater than myself

this is everyday work for the bread
currently i'm out for currency
accordingly to the livity
we do this on our own terms
my kids livin fresh
my wife hella fresh
dare i say it hella blessed
sacrifices
but self is not self when self needs common wealth
and youth need good health
if i waited for my fans to pay my bills
i'd be skinny bones jones in this bitch
stomach groans in this bitch
while some artist got they momma
some got they daddy to buy'em
a nice caddy supply'em
with a life that's cavi
we be hustlin n bustlin
time card scan the clock while we muscle’n
just "to get by"
word to kweli my struggle so beautiful
i'm a realist my pretty thangs ain't delusional
workers feel this I've never given up on artistry
a cross between Mike and Joe
it's just another part of me

i see there’s working to be done
and so i put away my pride
in this struggle for survival
we’ve got to stay alive
some dreams are full of maybes
so i push them to the side
and face this trouble everyday
and i take it all in stride
set my eyes on the horizon
straight steady for the sun
with this love light burning bright im gonna keep my family warm
and so there’s bread upon the table
and there’s rice upon the shelf
because i’m livin everyday
for something greater than myself

i'm on some
rappity rappy yes yes y'all
i don't sip the lean or mumble when i talk
i ain't fitting in with trends to well
ima west side original
opposite of frail
big dog big troofy
big dreams held loosely
we prioritize differently
strategize simply
teenage daughter shouldn't worry bout a father
young boys become men
so I'm ten toes in
i mean grounded like I'm supposed to be
we are the roots
baring fruits for our branches
to become they own kinda tree
beyond scholarly
soul power everything
focus on the spirit and energy
soul everything
when I think about 'm Omni
so everything
father
husband
teacher
lover
brotha
son
worker
writer
artist
provider
i'm peace but for family
a protecta
a ridah

i see there’s working to be done
and so i put away my pride
in this struggle for survival
we’ve got to stay alive
some dreams are full of maybes
so i push them to the side

a rainbow colored cat with a unicorn horn

jack and jill went up the hill to smoke a little grass
they got so high and blew their mind
oh boy it happened fast
so jack and jill stayed on the hill and built a little shack
they’re growing weeds to smoke with me

strychnine in a pecan pie with cream
