about

The summer of 2016 King Ly Chee is heading to the US for the very first time in their 17 year career to open Sick of it All's 30 year anniversary east coast dates. It was probably this occsasion the importance of a band from Hong Kong being invited out that inspired King Ly Chee to look at ways to represent Hong Kong when out there.

INTRO
Inspired and energized by the idea of representing Hong Kong we got together with a Hong Kong hip-hop legend Mastamic to create music that would help set the stage letting people know that a band from Hong Kong has arrived and about to show you how we do this. Hearing Bruce Lee's voice - THE hero of Hong Kong - fills us up with immense pride.

BE WATER
Inspired by a true Hong Kong legend Bruce Lee and his philosophy of being like water...especially when things don't go your way, be like water and go with the flow. Or the idea of how we spend so much time and effort overthinking something, when we should just go out and try and see what happens.

EMBRACE IT ALL
King Ly Chee tipping their hat to the world of punk rock that set the stage for hardcore as we know it. Lyrical content is pretty clear...just a song about embracing everything in life - the good, the bad, the ugly...chronicling our lives as young kids first getting into music, into grown ass adults raising our own kids!

Track Name: Be Water
It takes courage
Facing the unknown
That natural flow
Life isn't set in stone

There's a force we keep fighting
Our hearts keep telling us something
We trap our minds behind our fears
What could've been had we let ourselves go

It's not
That you're
Giving up

It's just
Time to
Try another path

Empty
Your mind
Let yourself go

Be formless
Be Water

Be Water
When life seems out of control

Be Water
Empty your mind - set free your soul

We spend our lives
Overthinking
Instead we should be
Living, Feeling

It's not that you're giving up
There has to be a better path
So start living

A rigid mind won't help us grow
An openness will help our soul

Shed those
Self doubts
Start living...live today

Be Water
When life seems out of control

Be Water
Empty your mind - set free your soul

Be water my friend just let go

Empty your mind
Strengthen your soul

Empty your mind
Strengthen

FREE YOUR SOUL
Track Name: Embrace It All
Just a little kid on the corner wide eyed,
Watching all these dudes on skateboards fly by
Little did I know this would become my life.

Now a grown man with a daughter by my side
On my record player flipping 45's
Little did I know this would become my life.

Little did I know what I...
Little did I know what I...
Little did I know what I had in store.

Life you just never know
What's in store and where you'll go
Twists and turns along the road
Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh...
Embrace it all

Fresh new AC/DC tape in my hand
Pakistani kid falling in love with bands
Little did I know this would become my life.

She walks around singing words to songs
The same songs got me through life all along
Little did I know this would become my life.

Little did I know what I...
Little did I know what I...
Little did I know what I had in store.

Life you just never know
What's in store and where you'll go
Twists and turns along the road
Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh...
Embrace it all

The good, the bad, the ugly
Through it all it helped define me
Don't shy away
Embrace it all

Life you just never know
What's in store and where you'll go
Twists and turns along the road
Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh...
Embrace it all
