about

Esoligh Auckland

I make music as a healing process for myself and to make a contribution to the world. I hope everyone listening takes something away with them from this. I'm making music with a purpose from the bedrooms to the boondocks. In the forest there are trees, and within the trees, the wairua dwells. As it is with this. Bless! ... more

Track Name: Osirus
Osirus by Esoligh (Skywards Haz beat)

Verse One
The windy mountain path blocks progress,
Yet determined I take each step,
My heart bereft by past mistakes,
I head towards the inner lakes

Bravey swells within me as I make the pass,
Classy words drip like snow off my mask,
This is the life of adventurers,
My past mistakes melt me to bliss

The samsaric world an illusory dream,
Growing within me is balanced steam,
Walking past the frontier of Dancing Wolves,
I realise it is here I need to be cooled

Missions home many years ago,
Taught me things I couldn’t know,
About life that I live with love that I’ve earned,
Pushing past the broken glass to days certain

Chorus
ODB, BIG BABY JESUS, OSIRUS, you know this,
RZA, GZA, REBEL INS,
U-GOD, METH, RAE, GHOST,
CAPPADONNA is the man and we say yo,
MASTA KILLA, keep it going to the day yo,
Yo, and I flow til the days end,
Then I sleep and wake up and do it all again

Verse Two
I’m about to go on a journey into my past,
Depression, darkness, it couldn’t last,
Gonna tell this guy of adventures past,
To find my way back from the darkest paths

To find a landscape you love to be in,
It’s a possibility to be surrounded by love,
Surrounded by a positive environment,
You don’t need to sit back and be controlled by

Rise to the sky with joy unbounded,
Find the conscious seed within and around you,
My broken heart was blessed freely,
Io will do the same for you, be yourself like ygb be

The world is a game that no one wins,
Who’s got the biggest yacht or the hottest girlfriend,
Find your soul within and climb mountains to the sky,
Outlive the lie beyond negative alibi’s

Chorus
ODB, BIG BABY JESUS, OSIRUS, you know this,
RZA, GZA, REBEL INS,
U-GOD, METH, RAE, GHOST,
CAPPADONNA is the man and we say yo,
MASTA KILLA, keep it going to the day yo,
Yo, and I flow til the days end,
Then I sleep and wake up and do it all again.
Track Name: Lifted
Lifted by Esoligh (Haz Beat - Better)
Verse One:
Stepping outside my epileptic fit,
The way I see and write about it,
On this crushed bus I sit,
Less than a Japanese train must be within it

A means to get me to Birkenhead easily,
Writing rhymes while juvenile minds sit behind me,
Potential motion to a soluble solutionally, institutionally,
Something non-toxic, non-pollutionally

All this I’m writing in my new moleskin,
Graduating from Uni and from being text book Tim,
Who am I? A man with a genius,
Living in spaces surrounding my meaningfulness

Achieving, another level of skill,
Readjusting to life after the red pill,
With skateboard skill, like Jason Dill

Chorus:
Sing over sample

Verse Two:
Yesterday I had my first Mirimiri,
That I had, to add, functionality,
It was a beating painfully received,
Creatively carried out to readjust me

Helping me be full of equanimity,
After I arrived home got ready for Waihi,
Cruising with a crew of 5 to a Taoist Monastery,
Where the yin and yang intertwine truthfully

My Kuia said it didn’t used to be this way,
Bad energy on the news every day,
Being boiled alive like a gourmet cray,
Pretty ugly, I must say

How is it we can rearrive,
At togetherness of yin and yang derived?
I know it’s something we have to do,
Enabling passage for us to go through and through and through
Track Name: Star*Peace
Star Peace (Skywards Haz beat)
Verse One
Leia, Luke and wookie chewie,
Jamming jedi knights like Rui,
Flowing phatta hong kong phooey,
Kai Pai rawe rattatouile

Han solo falcon flies through bluey,
What is it you decimally Dewey,
Boomtown like Star Wars thru me,
Solid beats these Haz beats sooth me

Finding books of Yoda's duty,
Breaking backs like deffest booty,
Which Jedi flows by Count Dookie,
In bathrooms after spicy stewie

Skywalker routs minds so gooey,
Jedi mind tricks see right thru thee,
Lifting lights above harmful brewies,
Anakin rearrives at sight most truly

Chorus
Woooookie? Wookies up!
Skywalking like dela sup!
Millennium Falcons fly by like pups,
Light enshrines one love’s syrup! (x2)

Verse Two
Crush this hate with heartful love,
Fly like Leia like white doves,
Shove the shadow Darthest rough,
Light like sabres bust up mud

Flying X-Wings with righteous blood,
5 steady virtues are the rub,
Who is Mace Wingdu above?
The thugs, mugs and daily tugs

Bright hearts break black with suds,
Lifting up weights we rip it up,
Stuff the suck we Obi Wan love,
Heal heartless hands with oneness tough

Who is the stuff of mightiness?
It is the force itself, the mightiest,
Step to dark arts with Jedi best,
Trough Darth Maul with deft blessed itch

Chorus
Woooookie? Wookies up!
Skywalking like dela sup!
Millennium Falcons fly by like pups,
Light lines enshrine one love’s syrup! (x2)

Verse Three
Rise above the dark sides snub,
The darkness in their eyes unloved,
The spark of joy we rise like doves,
Green sabres raised like, huts

A brutal game is played on us,
Sith mind tricks a gentle thud,
Adverts stream on TV's puff,
Rising live like Naboo yup

Jar Jar Binks walks through in touch,
Fighting haters with our love,
Upright chi our gift and hug,
Trusting Whanau with our strugs

Breaking mental bugs with rugs,
The warm within our soulful shrug,
Palpatine no hope to rebug,
Inside the minds of Jedi mugs

Chorus
Woooookie? Wookies up!
Skywalking like dela sup!
Millennium Falcons fly by like pups,
Light lines enshrine one love’s syrup! (x2)
Track Name: Wordz
Wordz by Esoligh (RoseLen2 Haz beat)
Chorus
Lots of words,
Lost in words,
Blessed with words,
Test with words,
The best of words, yeah

Verse One
Crash boom bash guitar Slash,
Vege mash burgundy sash,
Rash cream scene redream,
You, yours, ours, we’re mean

Pummelling broken bars til they reconnect,
Reigniting the lifeless derelicts,
This is my treasure chest, yes!
Stanzas blessed with heartfelt intellect

Def fresh, all best, boom checka chukka,
Chucks fly, they ain’t tucker sucka,
Vege heading to vegan,
Asthma bipolar dream I’m not needing

Beats blessed with big time bossness,
Bossanova with your lover to this,
Healing, health, relationships with women,
I pray a wife and kids are part of my living, yop

Chorus
Lots of words,
Lost in words,
Blessed with words,
Test with words,
The best of words, yeah!

Verse two
Many lovely wahine,
One I saw last night, and one today easy,
I must say that they are lovely,
Gotta feel pleased with their company

Who are they but beautiful beings gee,
Living around us def ultra agreeing,
I really want a new girlfriend,
Haven’t had one since 2001

True story! Since I got sick I been lame,
Couldn’t walk in the world of women,
I just want one which I can love,
Wholeheartedly, above the guff

My heart wide open working on damage,
Past pain poetically slain and maintained,
Heart bled down drains over awesome ones,
Prior love to making undone what had been

Yo I see through the bad dream,
And I'm fuckin' maintaining

My words are weapons and I use them to crush my opponents

Everybody peace
Track Name: Prize feat Semi-D & Illicit
Prize by Esoligh feat Semi-D and Illicit
Verse 1 – Semi-D
The magnificent sun is rising and a new day is dawning
This raps about us it’s a must it’s a warning
And to get on this track with Esoligh is like a calling
Something to say and not just yes yes y'alling

I, step to the mike as I reflect the past
And dwell upon the things like dreams that didn’t last
At times the light turned to darkness quick
But my inner flame remained to reignite the wick

I was Inspired by the man himself to reach others
Esoligh the passionate emcee whose soul covers
Smothers you with this blanket of niceness
Who could fight this expression of true brightness

I'm not an emcee or even a rapper
I'm just me expressing poetically, righteous chatter, yeah
And try to you move to the rhythm of life
So energise cause the prize is inside you bright

Go think about it….

Chorus - Esoligh
A prize, achieved derived,
Hives buzzing, with bees alive,
3 cultivators expressing with the humble insight,
3rd eyes eminating on the sparkling prize

Verse 2 - Esoligh
Huajianmu starts us off, hands up
And I’m here to fill the mids what’s up,
The section of the area, bury ya,
You’ll like me like a scotch terrier

I bust this rhyme hairier, veryer,
Than a savage biting terrier barrier,
Gotta try and put heart further merger,
Delete hate and make emcees earthier

Make life more like livable likeness,
Handing out with great goodness brightness,
Who are your heroes? Do you know?
Me? Oh cheers I bet it’s really Zeroh

I’m just chilling here bae walking my way,
Like a passionfruit sorbet, on past hot days,
Passing by hounds that bay for a hug,
Walking righteously daily on Persian rugs

Chorus - Esoligh
A prize, achieved derived,
Hives buzzing, with bees alive,
3 cultivators expressing with the humble insight,
3rd eyes eminating on the sparkling prize

Verse 3 – Illicit
It's time for me to dominate the mic,
I'm gonna spit rhymes tighter than a hill alight,
Blazing with the fire of the passion that I have inside,
Spitting every line with a flow that is going wide

Right around the globe I'm riding with the speed of light
I've been honing in on my talents and I'm doing right,
Every single rhyme that write is gonna coincide,
With the power of my mind I am gonna get the prize

Cos I knew it from the start that I had it in,
Nothing's brighter than the treasure that's within,
And only you have got the key to uncover it,
But finding the key is hard so you better look for it

But I guess that is the very meaning of life,
You gotta keep fighting your way all the way to the light,
You gotta find peace when everything else collides,
And only then will you realise that the prize is only found inside.
