Sometimes I wanna get away from all the confusion Causin' pollution I know you wish you could run away, from this institution Cause there's no solution, to survive
Another day when I'm waking up I turn my TV on CNN Another homie done bit the dust, my best friend's back up in the pen Somebody hit the twin towers, my boy, and the buildings came tumbling down All we could do was watch in tears While the people of America wondered how we let it go down Then, I heard a sound when I turned around This old man said pray for me (what'd he say?) Said I've been in the world for 88 long years and go now can you stay for me? (& what u do?) I looked him in the eyes, and gave him a smile and said mister I don't mean no harm But you ain't going nowhere, so just pull up a chair I got greens fresh off the farm (then what happen?) And with that he pulled a bottle from his pocket and said youngin' ima give it a try (give it a try boy) I said hold up pops, I ain't forget about the knowledge that you promised so pass it by and then he said...
From dusk to dawn, mom's always tellin me you must move on Let the past be the last thing to dust you son And I trust you mom But the dozen ain't my lust for fun, wanna bust my gun Wasn't much to some, then you measured up to most started walking down the road To the treasure up the coast You just never f***ing know what you gonna see, where ya gonna be, who you gonna meet It's true you gonna sleepin, slip into silence Shot guns firein', choppers and sirens Spotlight shinin, flashin on the glance At a boy without a chance and the Devil on his ass
I be sayin though, livin my life... wishin' and hopin I be sayin though, chasin the dreams... I be sayin though same thing that will make you laugh will make you cry That's how we know man, why ask why
I be sayin though taken away from the frustration I be sayin though teach me to use my imagination I be sayin though same thing that will make you laugh will make you cry That's how we know man, why ask why
