Lyrics: Don’t tear down the walls of your Ancient City
Tell me stories about your culture and history

Aight cool
Adventure be calling you
So get the f... up out your hometown
Give the answer to
The little voice up in your head that’s always asking you
“What would happen if you started living fast and full?”
Open heart it all starts with a conversation
With your brain and your soul, a negotiation
It’s a conscious exchange of the information
You can’t take it to the grave or replace it (no no)

So welcome to the life of a world traveler
Generational trauma tryna unravel ya
Don’t bottle it up or push it down to your core
You gotta walk it out, talk it out
Turn away from doubt
I wanna hear your stories
Times you fell short, not only the glory
Life’s about ups and downs so let’s blaze one
Chop it up and ride around this old town, yeah (yeah yeah)

I love to get lost in your Ancient City
Show me what your about, you’re still a mystery

You can acknowledge your history without
Dwelling on it or living in a prison of the past
Those former versions of you have helped shape
Your ever-present, ever-changing self
So let those walls stand
As a monument to your own evolution

Don’t tear down the walls of you Ancient City
Tell me stories about your culture and history

Originator of the cat rap
I never had to strap
I got my backpack, backwards snap back
I never clapped for a bad act
That’s just how I roll
You can’t handle that?
Homie there’s the door…to ya mind
Open it and take a ride
To the outer reaches of the interdimensional divine
There is more to you and me that we can see with our eyes
So let intuition be your guide and read the signs

About the Artist
Space Leopard Space Leopard

For Hip Hop/Electronica producer Phil David, aka Space Leopard, music is a cosmic force that transcends species and language. It has the power to transport us across dimensions and change the way we move, think and feel.

The Michigan-born, Southeast Asia-based artist materializes this vibe when conjuring up groovy, rhythmic music that is truly unique. Harmoniously moving between moods, from high-energy and percussive to chill and eclectic, Space Leopard binds these far out sounds together with meticulous rhythms

Major influences include other genre-bending masters like DJ Shadow, Bonobo, FKJ and Incubus; bold visionaires unafraid to create truly original and unique music without boundaries. 
Over a decade of globetrotting has impacted the evolution of Space Leopard's sound. You'll find the world music influence mixed in with elements of classic hip hop , Electro-trap mashed up with funk, or exotic downtempo ethnotronica soundscapes with limitless vibe.
