03. Boomin' / Opera Trip Interlude

Portable Sounds
by TobyMac



 

I've been around the way
I've been around the block
I got the keys to the city if the gates are locked
And a freak like me ain't ‘bout to stop
I got a hand full of dreams and a heart full of God

Everywhere we go they wonder where we're from
Well its diverse city ya'll welcome to come
It sits high on a hill you can see it for days
And even if you can't you can hear our praise
We go ...

'Cause we're boomin' out the stereo system
This goes out to anyone listening
Boomin' out the stereo system
Here to rep the most high with this one
Boomin' out the stereo system
This goes out to anyone listening
Boomin' out the stereo system
'Cause we rock for sure in stereo

If you're looking to slide, come slide with us
And if you're looking for a ride, it's a big old bus
We got black folk, white folk and Middle East
Mexican, Filipino - Jesus Freaks
Got a Haitian Princess, an Aussie Mate
East Coast, Midwest to left side of the states
And when the bus rolls, it’s out the dirty south
Tennessee and we keepin' it good and loud we go

I got portable sounds to lift me up
Portable sounds to take me higher
Portable sounds to lift me up
So don't even try to get in my head

"Opera Trip" Performed by Mandisa

Behind the Song:
"Funk meets hip-rock. Just the way the Diverse City Band and I do it “live”. I wanted to capture the essence of our sound Boomin’ through the speakers. Representin’ the “Most High” and bringin’ truth to the people in “bombastic style”. The title of my CD “Portable Sounds” comes from the bridge of this song. “I got portable sounds to lift me up, portable sounds to take me higher” No matter what life is throwin’ at you, refuge is yours through an iPod and a set of headphones. Turn it on and be encouraged. Turn it on and be reminded. Turn it on and be transported. Turn it on and be recharged. Obviously music can’t change the world but God can, and I believe music is one of his voices." - TobyMac
