about

This new track features Hopper Race and Nicole (no last name) as we go on a weird ass journey to an alternate reality where a key moment went very differently. What would you do?

lyrics

If you had just eaten the apple
We wouldn’t be here stuck in paradise
If you had just eaten the apple
We could stay out all night
If you had just eaten the apple
That stupid snake wouldn’t be here staring at me
And his stupid fangs aren’t even full of poison to free me
And his stupid fangs aren’t even full of poison

I know we’re just two silly people
Forever stuck in this place we’re told is paradise
All of the animals are so sweet and kind and soft and they don’t fight
But I saw the way that you looked at the nymph from over the grass in the clear lake
And I got a feelin that I got some feelings
About a man named Jake
I got a feelin that I got some feelings


And though I want to save my soul
I know
That the only way we will be whole is to go

If you had just eaten the apple
We could've adopted a kid from Russia
If you had just eaten the apple
We could’ve spent our days exploring Africa
But you didn’t eat the apple so we’re here in paradise till kingdom comes
And this is the kingdom for so many victims who don’t know their lives are marvelous
This is the kingdom for so many victims who don’t know their lives

And though I want to save my soul
I know
That the only way we will be whole is to go

Let’s raise a glass though there’s nothing but water here
And let’s pray that one day another apple tree will appear

And though I want to save my soul
I know
That the only way we will be whole is to go

And though I want to save my soul
I know
That the only way we will be whole is to go

Ekurtis New York, New York

Of self-producing artist Ekurtis's debut EP, PART I, Atwood Magazine said, “It’s easy to relate to this kind of ominous foreboding; the feeling that a good thing won’t last is all too real for so many of us, but Ekurtis gives further life to that premonition through an increasing pressure-cooker of sound that builds and crests and trophs across his EP in waves of harrowing emotional anxiety.” ... more
