GATTAGC
No one makes a fool of me
CCGTGCA
That's enough work for today

Head west, my pretty
Fly away far
Ride to the city
On the drafts of the cars
Head north, my pretty
Float on the breeze
Pass where you please
Be who you are

AGTGTCA
Let the double helix fray
CGATGCACT
You've come to set them free

Stay strong, my pretty
Fly away high
Spread through the city
In the evening skies
Stay pure, my pretty
Don't intermix
Don't fall for their tricks
Just be who you are

C for Cash and G for God
A's the lash and T's the rod
Sweep the table nice and neat
Day is done
My job's complete

Hey There
Got around to finally hearing this. Enjoyed it. Not exactly sure I get the acronym thing, but that is probably just me. This has a children's song kind of vibe to it. Vocals are great as always. Keep up the good work!

OMG
This is the best I've heard in a long time, and not only on MJ. I love this track to bits and pieces. What a sensitive creative song, and how well performed. I think the idea of the letters is brilliant, and brings a childish/naive edge to it. The proximity voice adds to that, and a voice that is emotionally well controlled - you know exactly what you want to express, and you succeed in it damned good. This is an instant download, to enjoy whenever I want to spare some quality time with myself. Splendido.

Adenine, guanine, cytosine, tyrosine. What will be will be. (I wrote before but didn't click.) Enjoyed it because of the tune and the singing. Thanks.
