    About the track:

    One of the best things about the traveling circus that is the music biz is meeting those who also wish to share their shine after watching you share yours.
    'Me against Me', conceptually was spawned from one of those moments. We were in SF on a triple-late-nt-day-break with a couple of bros from Sactown, when conversation lead us to the discovery that one was professional Boxer and 2 time world champion Kickboxer who goes by the name, Erik "The Hitman" Reagan. He was the nicest, unassuming fella you could ever meet. After fielding about an hour of questions (as both Bob and I have always wondered about the squared circle), I asked him how he handled all the sh*t talking those cats do in the ring, being that he's so nice? He looked at me smiled and said, "Burke, by the time I get to the ring I've already won or lost the fight. I was never fighting them, it was always me against me. This is common knowledge in places like on the golf course and in the weight room however, coming from someone who was the best in the world at something so intense, it was like a light went off when talking about the hustle and bustle of this music game.
    Later that week we're in LA for a show and spending the day working on a collaboration (this song you hear) with our homie and beat-smith mogul, Stephan Jacobs. So I threw out a text to our old homie Souleye just to let we were in the area working on a new track. He and I got into a nice reunion chat, he ended up at the studio and the rest is in the tune. The theme is relevant to all of us. The only person we need to be better than is the person we were yesterday.

    Lyrics:
    Shouldn't make me figure it out

    Chorus (2x)-
    and thats me against me
    uh ah better fuel it up this time
    what i thought i heard was somebody else
    and i know theres no better way to invite you

    V1 (Burkeybaby)
    Invisible the thread that connected us
    butterfly affected us
    tidal wave in Thai type of chain react and tempted us
    Yeah pinch it like a backend
    i'll call it Karma man cuz yo it had to happen
    I push and push to fuel the rush
    if not first the chicken than it must have been the
    and all ya needed when ya
    once conceived it in ya
    backspace then evolved it
    and then E-and then Evolved it
    a yup yup indeedy
    if you ain't got a plot than the seeds just for the feeding of the birds
    I guess I best be fertile with my words
    I guess I'll trade my handful of dirt
    for a 5th story desk full of drawers
    affordable mahogany
    leather bound books full of poetry
    honestly i'd rather make a mockery our of hard earned irony
    big big big shouts
    throw my desk off the balcony
    call me Valkarie.
    my failed attempts at capturing all the bigger fish
    just a mockery to confidence
    and i'm flashing in the confidence
    and laughing off the consequence
    pushing rocks off the top drop proposterous
    nope nothing like a gimmic
    experience and give it all back in an instant
    way before its vintage
    i'm gone

    V2 (Rob Hurt aka B3K)
    So everything that I've made
    And every time I hit click on that trip to engage
    It's just me against me
    But that took another's voice
    So it's just myself

    But I can use a little help
    I gotta few ticks
    Hopefully I fix so in the meantime I use them as a gift
    Digest a liquid appetite when in my lochness
    With a purpose that I can't begin to process
    Procrastinate on a later date, time don't atop
    I rip a hole through this black space
    Create the quickest lines of travel on my babel
    And at the other end you waited for arrival
    Approached your body with a smile
    But ya bright light lit through the air
    Like a moth onto a street light
    So much attraction
    I'm back to back
    Toe to toe
    Tit for tat
    Tap tidal wave dancing
    And she's in better shape than I am
    Saw her glowing
    And in the belly of that nature
    It was growing
    But not the time or the place
    Nor the rhyme or my space
    Called for me to be responsible for owning
    And so again it was I against I
    And then an eye for an eye
    Till the sky see's me floating

    Ch (2x)-

    V3 (Souleye)
    You are invited
    And Im delighted
    By the invitation
    The Temptation
    To raise the temperature
    Heat It Up
    When the place gets cold
    Embrace the Soul
    A man of Bravery told me
    He Said
    If you are searching for something
    First close your eyes
    And Look Inside
    Then see what you will find
    When Silence is your Guide
    It Provides you with the Ultimate
    Unlimited given the fact
    That there's no time limits
    Give up the silly gimmicks
    Come on now why we Living
    Are you Running or Not
    Afraid to Die
    If its I against I
    Then its me against me
    And the only Outcome
    Shall set us Free

    Ch (out)
