Hey, look, yo!
No castaway, no survivor
I ain't lost and this ain't shipwrecked
I feel small in this big wide world
And mommy ain't said 'Honey, I shrunk the kids' yet
I ain't Jesus, but I'm walkin' on water
There's no bombs here, there's no war 'cause
I can break out of jail with a lighter,
So is there any point in makin' laws blood?
This ain't Atlantis, are you sure?
I nearly suffocated when I touched the shore
No rain, condoms imported
And up the road, you'll never guess who I saw

It's K.A.
Look, skip on the beat like Ali in the gym
Honey, I'm home, this is where I wanna live
Just found it like Nemo on the de-low
I don't know if it's greener, but it's green though
On the other side of the fence
Bye to the ends, look, no fence, no stress, no rent
No superficial shit, this real folk
Where the women look hot, but the beat's cold
And the speech goes like, "hi, little lady"
Sex on the beach, wanna try for a baby
Word in the village, I'm a little bit crazy
Swagger on a hundred degrees, not eighty
Look, if heaven had a VIP, this is it: white sand, blue sea
But I don't know who they are
And I'm damn sure they don't know me, but I come in peace

Cool! White Flag! White Flag!
No war!
No guns!
No poor!
Just life
Just love
No hype
Just fun
No ties
Just me and my mic
Just me and my wife
But tell me if I'm dreamin', 'cause I don't wanna wake up 'til the evenin'
And I don't wanna be left sleepin' from all the diseases that I breathe in
Look, respect the island, no stealin'!
And don't bring religion here, no three kings
Integrated and we ain't leavin'!

We come on a peace thing
White flag?
White flag!
