about

"The ever-changing originality of Detuned Kytes is especially quenched in this hip-hop/pop ballad infested, futuristic disco-hood, drive-by of an album called, "The Parade" - the album brings robotic sex-like weapons to war in a rather beautifully composed apocalyptic sound-scape of urban confetti life. If that makes any sense? Mashing together hip-hop, rock, pop & psychedelic genres, it's a new DK sound with fine-tuning. In songs like "Boredom Postmortem, Steady Slippin, Valerie & A White Flower" Palmer sets hypnosis of a gentle-hearted pulse with arena-like emotions. While songs like "Exotics, Dizzy When Thumpin & Fukkit" show Palmers' abilities of being able to write songs of any mood with downright conviction to bring his listeners on an extraordinary trip."

Track Name: Dizzy When Thumpin
nothing but blocks covered with paint
nothing but pain in the concrete brain
but i've got style much more style
everyone move to my beat with style
dizzy when thumpin
dizzy when
round and round and round we go
dizzy circles while we flow

dead smothered in red
said the wrong words got a bullet in the head
dripping red nothing but red
the cop cars roll & the hole drains red
streets so still, dizzy when thumpin
the bass in the trunk & the shells keep pumpin
you've got style much more style
show the whole world about your motha fuckin style
dizzy when thumpin
dizzy when

round and round and round we go
dizzy circles while we flow

now let me expose
the motha fuckin fakes
i roll up with your bitches like i own the fuckin place
the break down master
the freddy krueger slasher
ya fuck with this & i'll produce right past ya
i just smoked greens
and everything is low
til i hear the fuckin beat & i know i have to flow
ya roll with this and you're high class strollin
i let the smoke blow & the beat keeps rollin
dizzy when thumpin
dj scratchin
808's clappin
everybody stand around like they don't know what happen
like a nigga flash forward everything went black
quick to react when you reaching for that strap
you gon' feel the bass when we thumpin on the track
th-thumpin on the track th-thumpin on the track

round and round and round we go
dizzy circles while we flow
Track Name: Exotics
you

you
a pure despotic
ooh, a new narcotic
ooh, i think we're exotics

high, high, higher
we're so high
so high

you
fix the chaotic
you
a pure despotic

high, high, higher
we're so high
so high

high, high, higher
we're so high

Track Name: Hood2Hood
hood to hood
block to block
you can hear it hit the body
when the bullets hit the body
you can hear this at the party
with my dick up in your body

we was bumpin the beats
just my homie Wes & me
steady puffin them blunts
& taking in society
reminiscing about the times
we used to have in the city
while we're flowin' to the rhymes
that taught us about Cali

you can hear it hit the body
when the bullets hit the body
you can hear this at the party
with my dick up in your body

verse by verse you know i fuckin kill it
you end up in a hears 'cause i'm the motha fuckin villain
piece by piece i've built this bumpin puzzle
i've kept it inside like a barks that's been muzzled
but now i've unleashed like a beast on the streets
a fucka so smooth with a beat so mean
they flex their fuckin triggers
blood everywhere
put the bullets in the air as the megaphone yells

as the sun was gettin hotter
our minds were gettin higher
keepin clear of shady cops
hood to hood block to block
as we roll through the streets
by the compton swap meet
a couple wrong turns
got us into shit deep
before we had the chance
to roll a different way
we're stuck on wrong streets
in the compton parade

a certified hardwood stuck between your knees
a certified hardwood stuck between your knees
a certified hardwood stuck between your knees
a certified hardwood stuck between your knees

you can hear this at the party
with my dick up in your body

so i say fuck it
Track Name: Boredom Postmortem
this soul i know
came from the planet unaware unknown
unknown i know
everything comes at a crushing blow
but if you can manage
don't try to plan it
keep it selected and it will be worth it

so don't you
give up
or you might
spend a life
wandering & wondering
wishing you
could've been

this sould
i've known
gets over-worked and becomes unknown
but i know
i know everything comes at a crushing blow
but if you can manage
you can't explain it
when everything happens
just like you wanted

so don't you
give up
or you might
spend a life
wandering & wondering
wishing you
could've been

shoulda' woulda' coulda'
but but ya' didn't
livin' with regrets
from what what you missin'
you could've had it all
but it wasn't your decision
now you stuck wishin'
wishin' on a star
wishin' for a car
wishin' for a better today and tomorrow
but the only thing gauranteed
that deaths gonna' come merrily

so don't you
give up
or you might
spend your life
wandering & wondering
wishing you
could've been
Track Name: Valerie
in the jungle maybe lost in space
we could own the planets
and then ask for a raise

valerie valerie can you help me?
i think i've finally lost it completely
valerie valerie can you save me?
i think i've finally lost it completely

livin' in a mansion left unknown
with the only zombie girl i know

valerie valerie can you help me?
i think i've finally lost it completely
valerie valerie can you save me?
i think i've finally lost it completely

and when the clouds released the sun
they found my body but my body was done

(its too late)

valerie valerie can you help me?
i think i've finally lost it completely
valerie valerie can you save me?
i think i've finally lost it completely
Track Name: Steady Slippin
slitherin' down the boardwalk
learning from the sea
i can feel the waves of panic
come crashing over me
and they say
too late child
all has slipped away
and i say too late people
i have slipped away

and with the waves all behind me
they push me towards the sand
and if i don't think i can make it
i hope you'll understand
and it says
just right child
lets just slip away
and i say its okay people
i have slipped away

dead on the shore
lies a body of truth
collapsed over-board
and beaten & bruised
through every rain storm
comes a rainbow
i suffer for reasons
that you'll never know

and they say
its too late child
all has slipped away
and i say
its too late people
i have slipped away
Track Name: A White Flower
when i'm with you
nothing finds me
its love its love its love its love
in the morning your smile defines me
its love its love its love its love

she wears a white flower in her hair
(the heart is restless, the world is reckless,
you need a love who makes it stressless)
she wears a white flower in her hair

laying with you i feel your heart beat
its love its love its love its love
wrap me inside you your warmth surrounds me
its love its love its love its love

she wears a white flower in her hair
(the heart is restless, the world is reckless,
you need a love who makes it stressless)
she wears a white flower in her hair

from the hands of the devil
i have crawled to light

she wears a white flower in her hair
(the heart is restless, the world is reckless,
you need a love who makes it stressless)
