Warm In The Light is a song specific to hard drug use written by Robbie Gallo & Matt Burke for Vokab Kompany & Gabe Lehner for 9 Theory.

The verses are written for my little brother Brian. He is currently in a rehab facility in San Francisco undergoing some major treatment but on a very positive path up and forward.

We hope the song will reach out to those experienced with this topic be it family, friend or addict, in hopes to connect with them and let them all know they are not alone!

This is song 1 of a 2 song EP called, Beneath The Shallow by Vokab Kompany & 9 Theory

Special thank you to Gabe and Burke along with the team at Recovery Brands, JayWat Production Studio, Delancey Street and all of you.


Warm In The Light by Vokab Kompany & 9 Theory

Rob Verse 1:
8 years getting close to a decade
Use to cook ya grilled cheese and a lemonade
Member days in December at the casa
It was you, me, G and our mama (and E)
At the time might of thought I was a little tough
I tried to hold you in the snow, make you give up
But oh no not you
You were way to cool
We called you B
Bee like a bumble
C how we sting
When our wings gave us trouble
But it was fun when we flew
Run, run me and you
‘Till the breeze felt new
And it was fun with the crew
We used to play Kung Fu and break fake bamboo
New shoes every Easter so we looked rich
Old clothes so the mama gave a new stitch

Burke Verse 2:
We growing up, big schemes
Watching as the jet skis
Intermesh with our jet streams
I’ll let you know that the best dreams
Be the stress free
Type of best me
And a belly full of hope
And I ain’t gotta use a telescope
To calculate the message
And tell you what you need to grow
Between your past and your present
Is that you shouldn’t waste a second
To forgive your transgressions, listen
Took a lot of burning bridges
And kicking in the doors ‘till they swingin’ on the hinges
And roof top singing for bringin’ in a new day
Watch the sun rise high over crystal bay

Burkey Bridge:
And it seems like the time we all got high
Summertime Tahoe, 4th of July
We all got a reason for the things we do
9 Theory Chorus (repeat x2):
Don’t be the one
Not having fun
When there’s a sun burning bright
It’s warm in the light
Turn it around
Stop looking down from such incredible heights
It’s warm in the light

Rob Verse 3:
Truth is you were born with a good life
Hard to know which friends would be worth while
Just kids trying to find another planet
Who'd a thought that cha find another habit
Back then it was nothing but a little fun
That all changed when you found that prescription
Can't understand you could love it more than us
But then again it was something that I never touched
A soft high in the clutch there was no plan
Went from pills, to a pipe, to a spoon man
Truth stands in the back 'till it's called up
Until then all your talks just stuff
God damn man hoping that you'll catch a clue
But me and you will see it through, never make do
We had a view of the world baby all smiles
Just a child and you're forever worthwhile

9 Theory Chorus (repeat x2):
Don’t be the one
Not having fun
When there’s a sun burning bright
It’s warm in the light
Turn it around
Stop looking down from such incredible heights
It’s warm in the light
