Heal Up Wheel Up Bring it back Come Rewind Poppa Got Some Gear On That Reflect the Time Pick is in his hair and my Momma is a Dime Neither is Aware what they about to find In the satin sheets is where they both'll climb 7 Steps to Heaven ~ Miles running down the line 7 steps from Heaven I'm runnin down the line The trumpets blow in stereo announcing my decline No tears shed upon my departure I shot a glance at my Heavenly Father He nodded acknowledging forthcoming collaring I had to smirk told em soon i'll be hollerin My fellow angels laughed dapped up and raised glass Sounds from the stage I'm caged in start to play as Drums start to drown the sounds from all around I nestle in ~ Mom's hearbeat Pounds Rites and Rituals ~ Life's a Bitch but Wow We All Addicts til we Kiss the Clouds Clinging to the Curtain ~ Don't End my Earth Game I'm Come to Conjure Nirvana Amongst these Birdbrains It was 11/12 Months after Summer Sam Hello Mrs. Gary it's the stork with a telegram You've been chosen to guide this little boy to man And you are in for a ride he got them older ancestors in Em From beginning ~ Poppa had a funny feeling Notha rhythm ~ Suttin Different ~ Nothin like them other children We better get to gettin ~ Split before the gutta get em This city make you to a star or sap your love for livin No Prophecies over me when I was born my Momma Screamed Doctor smacked me in the face and told me welcome to the Dream Birth of a recurring theme ~ Earth ain't never what it seem Swore I had the crown til they told me I was Burger King Sprintin out the gate I got tripped up upon the hurdling Take me back to Heaven Lord I hollered no one heard a thing This place it looks absurd insane prolly bout to burn in flame Momma holdin me she think it's sweet but I got her to blame I like this life more with eyes closed than open I wake in fear of that which can't be spoken My limited vocab and these primitive folk have Driven me to disagree with all the wisdom my soul has How do you convey to folk you know more than them When you look in they eyes and realize that they are all pretend No more real than cartoons or Jim Henson's Muppets I just left the master clearly you all play the puppets Truth is ~ Although i piss on myself and toothless I'm sheddin my tears cause it appears you fittin my neck for Nooses And you callin me the Nuisance Nah ~ I just got New Sense Or maybe I'm an ancient Chosen from the thrown but forced to face initiation Left behind the Palace for some bunk beds in the basement To Rise again a wiser man todays the Coronation

Poor Bub, He showin signs of a Thug Guess the BX tuffed his Love Dad saw that just like a Dad does Now the birthplace of Hip Hop is where I WAS Say goodbye to the Boogie ~ Hello to the Head Where the barbers are white ~ So I froed instead Growth got stunted as if frozen egg My city streets turned to cows I begged Get us outta here Daddy ~ I know Bub acted Badly But we can still go back and be a family All these white kids callin me Nigger And I ain't tryin to be a public figure But still they stare ~ I feel their glare And my teacher just asked if she can feel my hair And I see the way security's watchin us Daddy how come these cops keep stoppin us No reply just glassy eyes On the ice cold face of a classy guy Who drivin while black for that there's no ticket When we moved in the neighbors built picket Fences. It's Senseless. But still we emerge from the trenches Chorus: Just close your eyes child the planet's yours Is your skin so deep? Have ye lost no sleep? Hold on tight now we're at the door Are you in so deep? Sold your soul so cheap? Took some time now we on our way Couple fists to the face showed em we don't play And I live here ~ it's where i'll be all day Had a chip on my shoulder they called me Frito Lay But you can't feed on me Salty as I was I would beat on thee Still Devil's on the D Low see Although we rising in the ranks they tried to pee on we Just so happened we were born to be Ballers Pops planted the seed and we were his followers Gametime come whole fam left hollowest Coach 'pposed to lead ~ he chose to collar us The chains remains ~ the names have changed But when it comes to the game ~ yo it's all the same Still a case of a Black man / White man's world And I have not the time to address the girls Chorus There's two sides to this tail/tale I tell ya Not all dark deeds come from paler Golden Child ~ Dead center of the spectrum While white folks observe ~ Brothers neglect em One would think when against all odds We would embrace our own knowin times are hard Contrare MuFrare Crabs in the barrel stay clippin at my hair Why he speak so good ~ He's not hood He's not black if he's President It's all competition ~ All opposition I guess they rise while they crush your postion How childish ~ We been through college The struggles unprecedented dukes Pay Homage The flesh shall wither yet the soul is timeless And it took everyday of my path to find this

Burn Dem ~ Bleed Dem ~ Babylon A Demon Down Press the Humble Man and Uplift the Heathen I see the Youts dem a Misleadin Said Them Rhyme no Reason Freedem Freedem Freedem Me chant a Freedem Rhyme with no Reason A yo I'm stressin out can't even define what I'm depressed about This voice inside my head is tellin me I'm on a lesser route Teacher's on my nerves seems everyday she tryin to test me out No refuge on the court cause all my coach he do is flex his mouth And he ain't even played this game before Simply sabotagin my stage to soar Damn it my wings are sore ~ From being caged and clawed While my Pop's is trying to make a man of me and I hate him for it They tell me praise the Lord ~ That's empty rhetoric Marx said religion is the opium ~ The sedative And I don't even care to live A universal narrative Start to think that hell might be Heaven compared to this I'm at a age where I'm wise beyond my days But I'm forced to fit the system so I'm driftin off in Haze Twisted up and Blazed ~ While I'm lifted out the maze It's my birthright I chose this but I'd wish it all away We come from Shattered homes ~ Nappy Domes Teeth are broken ~ Half a comb Battered Mom's ~ Dad's are Gone ~ Joker like I laugh alone Shadows overcomin me ~ Rug snatched out from under me Patted at the door cause Momma think I got the gun on me And no one's ever seen me like this God Damn's and Jesus Christ's (Crisis) All my life I've played along despite the mental poltergeises And I wonder my classmates and I appear lifeless Is this what you laid out ~ Is this perfection How in your right mind can you lead in wrong direction Claim it's for protection when you haul us to correction Meanwhile the real crooks are ballin off elections And you ain't gettin my vote my mind My Soul my time my hope my shine I'm from a lineage of Bold not Blind And we nah limit to your borderline I could drown in a puddle of my own self pity Miss my City ~ Everyday's Shitty Got me stranded in the country out here where none of dem get me Really ~ Miss my City I'm chained to the classroom Stayin in the Bathroom Longer than I need to Just to avoid D'evils On the brink of paintin a classic til they stole the easel In Babylon they don't murder you ~ The slowly bleed you Taken from the home at 5 ~ Disciplined when showin Life Force fed fables til they able to control ya mind How am I supposed to shine ~ When everyday there's souljahs dyin And not the one's wit weapons but who reppin with they own design I'm an architect only lackin mentorship Middle passage left the ship Return to master well equipped to snatch the whip Since elementary my only problem was the lip Dunce I decorated it with Poems Prose and Sacred Scripts

Run Go tell Momma Her Favorite Son no come home no longer Alas he has summons his thunder Don't worry don't lose no slumber Ya baby boy done come up stronger Lost in the books and the halls and the classes My youts still seek they Rites of Passage I turn my eye to they Heavenly Passage How can I be Christ when I'm tied to campus Age 10 he was gone with the wind Seeking all types a teachers all of Earth's creatures Meanwhile I'm bein spoon fed by some chick recycling some ish she read Should you blame the shephard when the sheep are misled Or simply deflock yourself and watch yourself I payed my dues played along with these fools From Cairo to London all the way to Santa Cruz Before a brotha find himself sometimes I had to lose Whether tokin on the Ganj drownin sorrows in the booze It's Amazing that I done so well So my youts Run go tell ~ I say Run go tell Every quest demands a lil challenge Even hometown heroes gotta leave they parents I been back and forth seeking balance Knowin I been blessed with a wealth of talents Jesus ~ Moses ~ Buddha knows this New day same block brings forth hypnosis You may be not the force you hoped-ed Cool J ~ Sweet shot but not the coaches That's why I'm leavin this town Weavin the sound ~ Seekin definition on unbelievable ground Thought I was royal til they peed on my crown See I was biggin up myself while they was beatin me down But yo ~ What don't kill me will make me stronger Gotta go now Mom I'm not getting younger No man on Earth shall take me under I'll be OK Momma don't you wonder Til we meet again ~ I'm a keep the pen In my hand and write some things to send I know you you gonna read it again and again While you wipin the tears wit ya hand But don't you worry bout a thing You know the vibes that I fling And the way I magnetize what I bring I'm not just gone til November I might be back in the Spring I might be out there in the tropics somewhere laughin wit Kings Catch me in the Congo ~ Freakin the Bongos Dancin round the fire with nothing but fine models Don't tell Momma but we'll prolly have some bottles Cause life's not always deep sometimes it's shallow But in the meantime ~ I'm done with this dream I'm Ready to deal with the real ~ Wanna be signed Wish I could tell you otherwise ~ But I'd be lyin But let me hop on my way with a Peace Sign

You can Run ~ But can't hide from Yourself Pocket full a cash but you still lack wealth Push-Ups ~ Pull-Ups Build thyself I used to act fake just to shield myself New place ~ New face Everything my Pop's had taught me erased Pure little boy ~ Replaced I gotta stay cool my rep is at stake But still waters run deep My soul gettin sold up the river for cheap So I can hang with my peeps Had a good yard but I wanted them streets Confusion ~ I'm losing myself in This whirlwind of people I need to get back to my Discipline ~ Strict Within ~ Thick or Thin Fuck if I Can Fit With Them Find My Zone ~ Leave Me 'Lone ~ Free Be Strong Only Way You'll See ya Thrown Back on my grind ~ I'm tryin to get right Chest all swole get my six pack tight Work all day and I read by night The world's gonna know my name 'fore I die Do or don't there's no room for try I breath the wind and it keeps me high You can't see Free less you got 3 eyes I move the crowd like the moon moves tides I cruise with the few that choose to be fly Get love from the bay to out to NY I'm prolly strongest when I let myself Cry My cool is killin me these eyes stay dry A shame that we rock these masks to get by And kids gotta rob they folks to get high I speak my piece of this so-called pie So when folks see me they will know that I'm You cannot get ready wit a X-Box stick You will not get deis while you watch a flick I thank God that my Pops was strict He would put us out the house wit a ball and a stick Off on adventures from Parks to the Creek Had a athletic crew and a country clique How you think I got so quick Nabbin all the honey's playin catch and kiss Step to this Get ya one step two step left and twist Bein fly yo it's effortless When you're real wit yaself and ya catch your niche I'm reachin for the Sun We could be the one's To read a little ~ Write a little ~ Run Not reachin for the gun cause Peace will never come And i don't wanna die til I'm done

Freedom Cry Tell Me God are we gon die Oh Me Oh My If life is Love do We Apply Now in Tigray~This family of 3 Has to ration out their eats when before they used to feast The children got they vitals in and Momma got the last thing On nights when it was nothing she claimed that she was fasting Damn wish the good ole days were everlasting All she sees are shadows of a Love lost a past thing Age 14 and caught up in the madness The family starts to chat about where baby girls Dad is 10 Years back when Selassie's Assassin Was pluckin off the lineage with no questions asked and Poppa had to leave em all ~ Hoofed it to Sudan Left with no choice but become a new man Some kinda news came Moms was hysterical Could not decipher if doomsday or miracle Wiped back the tears to share ~ Forget me never Ya Father just sent for you ~ He's in America Chorus Touched down in Portland ~ Maine not Oregon Chain round her neck shows her name and her origin Spoke not a lick of the language ~ Her Anguish Had just begun in this world full of strangers You know how kids do ~ You down they kick You One sound they pick you ~ Apart and strip you Down til your issues ~ Is all that's visual And so went the battering despite all she's been through But wait ~ All the hatred motivated her To disarm they weapons give em nothing they could say to her Sensing opportunity she grabbed they words and ate em up Spit it out ~ No hint of doubt ~ Stole they ball and layed it up Crack a joke and they'd erupt Start to get the feeling as if God had said "OK Enough" Here's some brighter pastures for weathering those days of rough Shorty got her Masters ~ From down and out to Lady Luck

Sometimes it just don't fit ~ Off the scipt ~ So frustrated on some shit Wipe the teardrop off ya lip ~ Swear you leavin you forget It takes some heart to call it quits ~ Deny the calls and halt the clips The flashbacks the past racks the mind it reenacts that Member you canceled trips often pissed ~ Swore you'd cross him off the list Gave him years and all for this ~ He torched ya soul that arsonist And not that all the fault is his ~ I seen you make mistakes forgived Sometimes you hate to Love ~ Hate to Live ~ Hate you wanna make his kids Everyone tells me I should move on (It's time to move on) Been waiting for things to change for too long (I hate that you don't see things my way) Every tick of the clock my heart breaks (Wanna start a family and see how true love can be) I Need to find the feeling only one thing makes Unconditional Love Mi Amiga always good to see ya Tell my why that man he got you sheddin them tears Not up in ya biz ~ But you know this is The only thing that ever really brings you stress Don't know how to say this ~ But baby you a sadist Think you fell in Love with all of Love's ideas Don't have to be a seer ~ Psychic or a Cleo To recognize that you my friend could do much beater I mean better Baby keep ya head up They say if you can weather the storm then it will let up And I can't be your umbrella when you love a fella Who got you sinkin so low you should play the cello Or even sing the Blues ~ What's today's excuse Are you together outta love or just afraid to lose Not what you say but do ~ And he got ways to sooth But you a diamond ~ Fuckin wit fugazi dude Things started movin quicker Days turned to months turn to years now ya fears get thicker Dated other dudes but her mind never moved it was always on that nicka Biological ticker whisperin in her ear girl stick wit him All she wants is some children And she filled him in Even though she was only half feelin him If my parents had a been this picky Earth would never get me What you wan me wait til 60 I'm a Sistine Pristine simply coexisting looking for my own Davinci If Michaelangelo had a hand to hold She would a left old dude a couple years ago But yo this land is cold she'd been abandoned So she proceed to never need another man to mold

Blue roses is all I have to hold I'm guilty of chasing fools gold The sun shined now it's gone now I'm cold Bring back my blanket bring back my soul I've seen so many travel down the same road Promising myself to never see that hole But here I am Deep Abyss so low Damn you should a seen us glow Birds rejoiced and trees stretched to grow Caressin us Blessin us we shined so Undoubtedly a Divine flow Oh baby won't you be mine.. No The line was drawn but of course you know it's toed Round and Round round we go Words are only half the other half is what we show She said, "Free I Have to Go" I'm just Wondering Wondering Wondering Why Swore it be you and me unti we die Drinkin to drown my sorrows forgettin getting High Had me from Hello so Baby why you say goodbye My sheets are heavy now it's hard to pull em back Weight upon my chest as well My heart's black I'm not depressed but my life is all an act Keep the surface cool inside I'm fallin off the track She on my mental playback No amount of editting could rearrange the facts Souls collide and opposites attract We must a been the same Ain't no balance in that My friends say I'm buggin come back It's misery but I love where I'm at Deep up in the desert with no food or pack Nothing to remind me of the lost contact My E.K.G. would read flat Less you had some Captain's, Patron or Jack Drink away the pain to cover up just what I lack I want her back man, I want her back Chorus Grown man shed no tears ~ Appears To be Samson-esque til Delila brings Shears Used to clutch her now in turn clutch beers Defense mechanisms How you face your fears Love is what it is ~ Kids ~ try to emulate grown folks ideas But that was not like this We were on a unparalleled path from 1st kiss Used to patch the innertube when the tire went flat Submerge it in the water findin where the hole's at Put my heart up in the bottle and the bubbles showed the crack My Soul was steady leakin tried to patch it wit a sack Contact My body is a temple ~ It's been rendered to a shack All the hearts that I slain guess that Karma came back Bartender give me one more gnac

I'm here today and gone tomorrow but Back the next day be glad to catch me I dance with death like a clan in frenzy This life an emcee the next a sensei The last I rescued the ass of Kinte Was master and slave bastard and brave Before I pass yo I fast for 10 days Attract my ending while half ascending Scope out the next 6 lives I'm pending I'm done with Earth til ya'll stop pretending It's condescending and time for cleansing Far as I'm concerned by now we should a been Kings Ya Royal Highness embrace my Lioness And yes the love that I made was timeless I'll return to the Sun when it's time that I rest And hope I left a lil suttin suttin to digest Every Dog has it's Day Every King Loses Crown Every Lion Loses Pride Every up has it Down We Prolly die cause we Expecting to And this the Beat that I'm a be Resurrectin to Every Leaf reaches Earth Every Star It'll Burst Maybe All it's a Curse Doomed to Die from the Birth I'm Celebratin with What I've Got Ain't No Time for Me to Chasin What I'm Not They say ya once a man and twice a child Yo this life is wild homey write this down Said the Birth of civilization yo it sprung from the Nile Check ya sources information and there's nothing to doubt They say the Source of All Creation yo we come from the clouds I rode the rays I'm from the Sun and I came buckin em down As I considered my route I found rebirth in the now I can't be living in a past I got no wisdom about That's how they system amounts They cut you off from the fountain of truth As a youth you forced to feed off they fruits And ya roots come out from underneath ya timberland boots And there's proof in baby momma's out there singin the blues Cause it hurts to water seed but it nah spring from the Earth I reverse and bring it back to Momma she's in the thirst And on account a they hypocrisies the masses will burn Leave my ashes in Hawaii and put a match to the urn I'll be Reincarnated God made it I made it Countless the stars and bars that I done migrated Laws I violated bought malls for my lady On my favorite planet they don't talk they vibrate it Winds teaching you bird brains seeking truth Her name Hurricane Earth will never be the same Man had a shot co-created a disturbing game Take ya pick drown Earthquake or maybe burn in flame More Fiya on my funeral pyre I'm a do what I does til the day I expire As for you and ya cuz you can hate or admire Cause I know it wasn't nothing but lovers around Messiah Holy Jesus I broke the gate loose And snuck into Heaven with a bottle of Grey Goose So come sip from the waters of death And reflect on the life and times of G-Clef
