Midnight Marauder
Lyrics by Khalil Habrih


Verse 1:
He’s a man of many ladies
And of as many mysteries
He keeps his mind unkept
And what he wants he gets
He speaks with great verve
Often swings and swerves
He has told many lies
And often comes in disguise
You will not read his face
Yet in his eyes detect a trace
Of a longing desire
To stand next to her fire

Chorus:
The Midnight Marauder undressed her with his eyes
With a subtle stare, began to untie
The hooks and the knots leading to her soul
He’s not a crook, yet sought to take her whole

Verse 2:
A silver tongue like a snake
He could effortlessly take
Her smiles and innocence
In a ritual or tribal dance
And although it may seem
It is all but a dream
Once she wakes in the morn’
The bruises and the scorns
Upon her dignity he left
Will have been proof of the theft
And as a robber he’d steal away
Leaving her where she lays

Chorus:
The Midnight Marauder undressed her with his eyes
With a subtle stare, began to untie
The hooks and the knots leading to her soul
He’s not a crook, yet sought to take her whole


Verse 3:
He’s says he’s too tired
Can barely communicate
Or that he’s wired,
Can’t concentrate
It’s her thoughts playing tricks
On his body and soul
Oh, her mind is electric
It has taken him whole
Well, the sapphire approaches
And in its midst the feeling
Which with her voice sends, launches
The marauder twirling
Well, he has found a true rival
Beauty immaculate
A bond of intellect
Not solely bestial

Last chorus:
And now, he no longer runs
Finds himself staring at the sun
In the morning when it rises, evening when it sets
Yes, he just lets
His imagination flow…

about

Chill Beenz Reims, France

Chill Beenz was formed in 2011 by students at the Reims campus of Sciences Po Paris. Although the original band members went their separate ways, the legacy of the Chill Beenz lives on. The band rose again like a phoenix in 2013-2014, incorporating new members. Thus, the release of "Birth of the Chill" marks both a culmination of two years of the Chill, and a [Re]Birth of the Chill. ... more
