ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brave New World is Midnight Kahuna's third album release. The content is a fusion of World and Rock Music stacked like a concept album without being a concept album. This album is the perfect vehicle to touch on all the blended influences that make up the music of Midnight Kahuna. It is "audio escapism", to use a borrowed term, at it's max. Recorded in Midnight Kahuna's hometown of Miami, Florida, the album takes you on a sonic journey from song to song.

The first track, Mufasa Returns, is the perfect introduction to your new musical adventure. Provacative and alluring, the song sets the stage for what surely is a different album experience than one would expect. In other words, expect the unexpected.
Brave New World, is World music meshed with Rock-n-Roll. It starts off like an early morning filled with hope and then changes steadily until you have a full head on attack. The song challenges the idea that the world ever does truly change.
Tarzan & Kalimba, takes you for a ride in the jungle infusing African Rhythms and choral arrangements. One can only imagine the happenings between Tarzan and his lover as the listener approaches the climax which is topped off with a beautiful comparsa that leaves you somewhere in the caribbean.
A Little Distance, keeps you in the caribbean with an honest tale about letting time and space work their magic.
Diamond, is reggae rock and like a diamond, pure brilliance.
These Dreams, is island rock paired with harmonies of yesteryear. It is a song for lovers and friends.
Easy and Cheap, is a rocker reminiscent of an age gone by. Good music with a simple message.
Maybe, is another rocker that brings us back to the states. You can feel the heartbeat of the city in this tale of "not seeing the forest for the trees."
If Ever You Should Fall, is a ballad with a gospel type of tone with the ocean as a backdrop. It is a song from a father to a son. It is a song that any parent can relate to and a song that children come to understand and appreciate only with age and experience.

Brave New World
------------------------------
They say we live in a new world
They say we're living in a Brave New World
I look around
I see the same old planet
I stand beside myself my eyes open wide
I try to listen, hear the same old lies
More hope and change and everything else that cash can buy

Do you remember when we were young at heart?
All our dreams were real
Wished upon a star
But we're older now and it's a different game
And though the rules have changed, the players stay the same...

I sit and contemplate the new and strange
It seems familiar in a whole new way
A different wording but the message is more of the same
Turn on my radio to hear whats on
A different rhythm to the same old song
Another sample for the eager Brave New World....

Do you remember when we were young at heart?
All our dreams were real
Wished upon a star
But we're older now and it's a different game
And though the rules have changed, the players stay the same...

They say we live in a new world
They say we're living in a Brave New World
I look around
I see the same old planet...

I see the same old planet...

A Little Distance
--------------------------

I want to thank you
For letting me down
I want to thank you
For cutting me out

I aint got no beef
Yeah but I don’t want no grief

Let’s put a little distance
Between you and me

I can’t lie, my face don’t wear no mask
I can’t hide, these feelings that I have
I have tried, to act like I don’t care
It’s an act, of which I’m well aware

Don’t give me no resistance
It’s me I’m deceiving
Let’s put a little distance
Between you and me…

I aint got no beef
Yeah but I don’t want no grief

Let’s put a little distance
Between you and me

I can’t lie, my face don’t wear no mask
I can’t hide, these feelings that I have
I have tried, to act like I don’t care
It’s an act, of which I’m well aware

I can’t lie, my face don’t wear no mask
I can’t hide, these feelings that I have
I have tried, to act like I don’t care
It’s an act, of which I’m well aware

Of which I’m well aware of…

Eeeyo oh!!!!

Give me a little distance...

Diamond
-----------------

You got bright green eyes, but a sailor's mouth
Got beautiful skin tone, but you never smile

Baby, baby, you're a diamond... (in the rough)

Wanna take you dancing, but I'm afraid
That you're gonna go ghetto, take the center stage

Baby, baby you a diamond... (in the rough)

You got potential
To make the cut
You got the goods
It ain't enough
A strong demeanor, don't mean a thing
A bird can't fly, with a broken wing

Baby, baby you a diamond... (in the rough)

Want to take you to dinner and out to a show
Gonna give you a polish, from head to toe
A sequin night dress and some high heeled shoes
Are you too tough for romance
What have you got to lose?

Baby, baby you a diamond... (in the rough)

These Dreams
--------------------------

Hello my friend
Hello Again
It sure is nice to see you in this weather
It sure is nice to be again together
When we sleep this night these dreams they'll last forever

No more goodbyes
Turn out your lights
Things you know are only getting better
Now that you and me are back together
When we sleep this night these dreams they'll last forever

And when we go down on the road
Will we try to save our souls
Or will we stand here getting older by the seconds
And when we wish upon a star
It won't matter where we are
We'll sleep this night, these dreams they'll last forever

Hello my friend
Hello Again
It sure is nice to see you in this weather
It sure is nice to be again together
When we sleep this night these dreams they'll last forever

And when we go down on the road
Will we try to save our souls
Or will we stand here getting older by the seconds
And when we wish upon a star
It won't matter where we are
We'll sleep this night, these dreams they'll last forever

When we sleep this night these dreams they'll last forever

These dreams...I keep on having these dreams

I keep on having these dreams...

Easy and Cheap
------------------------------

I like them easy, easy and cheap
I want them sleazy, sleazy and mean
I want to eat them up and spit them out
I want to tear them up from inside out
I want them easy, easy and cheap
I like them sleazy, sleazy and mean

Don't care if she gets me, I'm just enjoying the ride
Don't care if she brakes me, I'll take it all in stride...

I want them easy, easy and cheap
I like them sleazy, sleazy and mean

I want to eat them up and spit them out
I want to tear them up from inside out
I want them easy, easy and cheap
I want them sleazy, sleazy and mean

I like them easy, easy and cheap
I want them sleazy, sleazy and mean...

Maybe
-------------

I saw you standing there and to my surprise
There were tears that filled your eyes
I couldn't contain myself and I had to ask you why
You said your love had said goodbye
Well, I used to see you here most everyday
With a smile from ear to ear
Your's was the face, I could never erase
So, I'm here for you my dear

And I know you must be afraid
I'm not your type you say
I would never, turn you away

Maybe I'm a little crazy
Maybe I'm a little wild
Maybe I'm a bit too lazy
Maybe I'm a bit too loud
If you're looking for the perfect one
You're sailing on a ship of fools
But if you want to touch the sky
Maybe I'm the one for you

And I've been known for messing around
I've been accused of letting a couple people down
Whoa oh oh oh
As for promises
Hell, I've broken a few
But I've never felt this way about anyone
Like I feel about you, ooh, ooh

And I know you must be afraid
I'm not your type you say
I would never, turn you away

Maybe I'm a little crazy
Maybe I'm a little wild
Maybe I'm a bit too lazy
Maybe I'm a bit too loud
If you're looking for the prince of charms
I think you've found the prince of fools
But if you want to touch the sky
Maybe I'm the one for you
Yeah now, maybe I'm a little crazy
Maybe I'm a little wild
Maybe I'm a bit too lazy
Maybe I'm a bit too loud
If you're looking for the perfect one
You're sailing on a ship of fools
But if you want to touch the sky
Maybe I'm the one for you
Yeah now, and if you want to touch the sky
Maybe I'm the one for you...

If Ever You Should Fall
--------------------------------------

My son, my son, you've made me proud
I strike the chords and I sing it loud
I love the days that we have shared
I pray the Lord these days to spare

For as we both get older
I notice that the days grow short
I'll send you a reminder
For when your ship sails out...

If ever you should fall
I'll be there to catch you
No matter where you are
I'll come running for you
If you decide to call
I'll be there to answer
If ever you should fall
I'll be there with you through it all...

Times get rough I've been around
But worry not, your safe and sound
Have faith that you can overcome
'Cause I believe in you my son

If ever you should wonder
If you can carry on
Pull yourself together
And know I'm never far...

If ever you should fall
I'll be there to catch you
No matter where you are
I'll come running for you
If you decide to call
I'll be there to answer
If ever you should fall
I'll be there with you through it all...

Don't lose hope in the dark of night
Everything will be alright
Don't lose hope in the dark of night
Every day the sun must rise...

If ever you should wonder
If you can carry on
Pull yourself together
And know I'm never far...

If ever you should fall
I'll be there to catch you
No matter where you are
I'll come running for you
If you decide to call
I'll be there to answer
If ever you should fall
I'll be there with you through it all...
