Runnin in this capitalistic game Got me feelin much of the same Ignoring the pain in search of the green and fame I’m pretty sick of exhausting myself in this sadistic white man's gerbil wheel Matter fact, I quit! Fuck this shit! But what about the kids? And I know my ancestors got their bids Gotta take of my loved ones for when my bodies gone Play this game of thrones And sittin’ on my royal throne Wonder if I find happiness or trap my bliss Or raise my trip to the feeling of consciousness And not flaunt my shit In order to make my family proud Connected like the proud family Or find my friend like boy meets world Or boy meets girl that gives em’ entire world Of the unseen shit they call the metaphysics Shit the third eye gets and brain sees on shrooms or lucid Or death of the physical Body that lobbies for hotties and Outies for hobbies and judge thee for bein’ thee I wonder, I catch thee or be free? From, lobbies and hotties and Outies for hobbies and judge thee for bein’ thee I wonder, I catch thee or be free? From, lobbies and hotties and Outies for hobbies and judge thee for bein’ thee I wonder, I catch thee or be free? Round and round and round in circles Ready get set go Really nothin’ different from the new and from the old Round and round and round in circles Ready get set go Really nothin’ different from the new and from the old I’m lost at sea with no paddle And slave with no shackle A snake with no rattle A scholar no tassle Razzle no Dazzle A king with no castle I’m tough but I’m fragile Sometimes you reap what you sow sometimes you watch it unravel When I shoot from the hip it’s a risk (Bang, Bang) Double back for the ones that I missed (Damn) Ima be late for my shift Believe it or not it’s all in the wrist Ignorance ain’t gon’ always be bliss Question my vision, I’m pleading the fifth If you don’t shoot then you can’t even miss Weighed all the odds and I’m takin a risk, yea Gut is filled with newports Guts, syringes, and good intentions Magnum rubbers, beer cans Bourbon bottles, and empty pensions Whole state taxin’ my wages Swear I ain’t prayed in some ages Samuel stay in your pockets Sallie gon’ get her payments Devil keep tryn my patients Long as judges is slammin gavels And authors is pinnin’ novels Ima live life a strong shot no chase Smooth chords loud bass Expensive taste, fuck yo rat race nigga I ’aint won a jammie yet I just deserve to And I ain’t got a smoke I just prefer to Careful with them friends that might dessert you Same ones you love will be the same ones that hurt you Careful with them friends that might dessert you Same ones you love will be the same ones that hurt you Careful with them friends that might dessert you Same ones you love will be the same ones that hurt you Round and round and round in circles Ready get set go Really nothin’ different from the new and from the old Round and round and round in circles Ready get set go Really nothin’ different from the new and from the old From, lobbies and hotties and Outies for hobbies and judge thee for bein’ thee I wonder, I catch thee or be free? From, lobbies and hotties and Outies for hobbies and judge thee for bein’ thee I wonder, I catch thee or be free?

Slave to the chain Slave to the chain Slave to the chain And then chained to the whips And they never come through and they always talkin shit I said slave to the chain and they chained to the whips and they never come through and they always talkin Live by my black hands black plans with black friends blacks jams And bblack president black movement benefit of bein’ x gen And shot down by the police, like shot down by the Nazis Cuz some sheeps disguised as wolves and some wolves killin’ black men And hunt for sport they play to win Watch the game on CNN Get their trophies with their badge then plant the crack ‘nd go hunt again A million ways to die in sin Mine was walkin’ on a continent Infected with the biggest hypocrites, immigrants that no longer welcome in But I ain’t mad no I ain’t mad just gimme my bag right now I ain’t mad just gimme my bag right now I ain’t mad just gimme my bag right now I ain’t mad just gimme my bag right now Slave to the chain And then chained to the whips And they never come through and they always talkin shit I said slave to the chain and they chained to the whips and they never come through and they always talkin shit like ( Court Case) Birthed at 3 pounds 5 ounces on the 3rd on May Washed in blood now I tug at life in mortal ways How i find human kind a love that’s so divine But filled with stress and death and mine was eager to show blind People of the thing that caused you so much void and pain Embedded in you before birth its in your DNA That was passed down to me Caused me to birth to early And now I’m written’ you this message from the sky don’t worry I probably wouldn't like baby food or school lunch or doing my chores or working hard for SAT scores so, Ii was sent as a letter in a bigger message composed by babies that were brought across the North Atlantic Dear Human Race, I hope this letter finds you well. We're writing to you even though we didn't learn to spell. We wanna’ know if you can find a way to treat our moms right? They've been feelin home alone for years without no spotlight. And that's the blame for the reason we cant tell her "Hi!" Or learn to cook and share our pieces of sweet Apple Pie. Or at least we think it's sweet that's what the other spirits say. Either way we DEF wanna build and sing. Those are things you do when you want to express yourself right? And build some structures that make life a little simpler, right? Yea that sounds like a beautiful human dream. And when we do it we promise to share it with the human team. After all, thats what its about? Sharing love? Building trust? Healing wounds? With the truth? With the crew? Me and you, me and you, we and you? at least that what the other spirits say Either way I hope you find yourself in the letters Never spelled I hope you find yourself in the letters Never felt I hope you find yourself in the letters Never spelled I hope you find yourself in the letters In the letters Sincerely Still born babies of color.

Burnin roads to the dying sun In lions fur Never crossing for fun Light it comes and goes like tidal flows But burns so slow Makes us predictably numb Always thought we had the time to see But now we must we will walk in the dark So Maybe we'll talk Maybe we'll laugh Maybe we'll dance Maybe we'll sing In our next lifetime Might be the right time In our next lifetime Might be the right time One rose for the pedal that was never smelled One pour for the liq that was never drank One thank to person that made me dance all night on the broken roads To loose control If I could just thank your soul Maybe you could enlighten my goals Enlighten my soul One knock for the grimm standin’ at my door 2 tears for the eye that left too soon 3 wishes for the time we could’ve had Oh so sad but not so bad Cuz the time you had Touched some souls Maybe you did enlighten my goals Enlightened my soul Always thought we had the time to see But now we must walk without dark So Maybe we'll talk Maybe we'll laugh Maybe we'll dance Maybe we'll sing Maybe Next lifetime Might be the right time Maybe Next lifetime Might be the right time Maybe Next lifetime Might be the right time Maybe Next lifetime Might be the right time

Its half past one again, look whos arguin, us two They say boys dont cry but, i cried for you And I thought we'd make it past hard times Another notch on our belt to tighten But this time babe, this weight is to much And there's no songs for the weekend And there's no songs for the weekend Woke up this morning got my check in the mail It's the perfect timing, it's the birthdate for my little girl And on that day I lost your mother And your the spitting image of her But don't cry babe, your very much worth Those no songs on the weekend Those no songs on the weekend In the moment never saw my blessings Too focused on negativity I reckon Too dark for light of heart Broke to be my part Late to strong my start Cold to share my warmth And i wanna be a star one day?? Bright and warm even in a cold dark space Please charge it to my head Not unto my heart Probably do it again if not for search within And it'll make your head wanna spin Liking drinking 40oz of loco mixed with gin Then turn around and play merry go round with like 10 kids Knowin' darn well you shouldn't have done it I gave blood at 10am Respected more still are bad men I can still have a chance to be president I should focus more on love peace gratitude forgiveness Focus more on love peace gratitude forgiveness Still through bad times we have those love peace gratitude forgiveness love peace gratitude forgiveness And still through bad times we have those love peace gratitude forgiveness love peace gratitude forgiveness And still through bad times we have those love peace gratitude forgiveness love peace gratitude forgiveness And still through bad times we have those It's half past 1 again look who's singin' songs Us two

I woke up and brushed my teeth this morning Thinkin bout you And all the things you do and I made my breakfast with eggs no sausage Thinking about you I must be a fool cuz I walked out the door with keys no wallet thinking bout you That's why I call you my boo so I had to make this call for to tell you Im was thinking bout you And it must be true that I don't know where you come from But they say girls come from Mars And I don't know where you come from no No no no But they say girls come from Mars So Mars must be heaven and Your heaven sent, and girl you not too far from innocent. But in a sense you know more about the world so call it rent for energy That you give to me and others every day in your sweet ways or call it a ray I hope that the cycle is complete Give and take I hope we give you what you need, so you'll see, that the world ain't your oyster and I ain’t your pearl that's why I call you my girl You're more complete than centuries analogies I hope that this feeling will never freeze, so you'll believe That my body is worthy to go on a journey through space with no worry If Mars is the name, heaven is the body And if you are from Mars and we're goin’ tomorrow Somebody put me on that spaceship Somebody put me on that spaceship Somebody put me on that spaceship Somebody put me on that spaceship And I don't know where you come from And I don't know where you come from And I don't know where you come from And I don't know where you come from If mars is the name then heaven is the body And if you are from Mars and we're goin’ tomorrow Somebody put me on that spaceship If mars is the name, heaven is the body And if you are from Mars and we're goin’ tomorrow Somebody put me on that spaceship

I plant my seeds in time of past And now I see how they will grow Won’t see stars if they don't Glow Won’t sail far if wind never blows It’s pretty cool to be seen but I much rather be heard Whatever happened to that dream preferred In those words of Jay Jackson, now I must turn around and mind my faction for action to bring attraction to the things that I deserve I never asked to be dirt I never asked to be God I better pass on these things that bring down my vibe Not only do I survive But i'm built to thrive So when I cry I finally feel what hides deep inside These buried walls they like to call the act of being a man But When will we understand that lean on me means take a hand Man take a stand against the plan to bury your heart Yea play your part unearth those walls Meet your call Share it with all Yea bright your glow till its a star And I I got a my, Tarot Cards in my pocket Can't stop it, can't lock it 'Til I get a portion of the world's largest market So mark it in your hearts if you got a problem with Ngozi That's only somethin’ you can take up with the one that made thee They say to understand a problem you gotta break it into parts Is that why we’re tearin' this earth apart I can't fathom where we'll be in 50 years Only to imagine we'll be swallowing tears and and drowning in fear So forgive me if it sounds like I'm comin' off harsh, But what the fuck are we doin' If we ain't Tryna keep this world from falling apart So start your journey, to source, the course, the force ain't forced it's lured within the kin so get your friends, and notice that we're all in this together It's the only way we're gonna calm this storm and make perfect weather. They say we got 99 problems but we choose to solve none So until then I'll get my portion and make 98 for fun. Cuz I got my I got my, Terra Cards in my pocket Can't stop it, can't lock it Til’ I get a portion of the world's largest market So mark it in your hearts if you got a problem with Ngozi That's only somethin’ you can take up with the one within thee cuz I plant my seeds in time of past now I watch life do the rest And yes I know life brings growth and change But I hope, hope stays the same I plant my seeds in time of past now I watch life do the rest And yes I know life brings growth and change But I hope, hope stays the same Stays the Same
