I Did It For Sho

Original and similar lyrics
Yea I did it It was time Yea Why keep asking me Keep harassing me All those questions about who and what she means to me I’m a lucky guy I found someone that I Can paint the town Run around Someone to talk with Such a lucky fit Baby she be it You wanna know if I’ve fallen for her I tell you quickly Free up some energy Cause I don’t want to let her go [Chorus] I did it for sho All the trips abroad (trips abroad) Max’d out credit cards (credit cards) Throwing down to Mr Chows (Mr Chows) I did it for sho Meant to let you see (let you see) You just can’t sleep on me (sleep on me) Another on will come around (around) I feel we had our chance And it’s come to an end Now you wanna come around Naw girl go with your friends We used to love them streets But now I need my sleep So I can dream of things That you couldn’t even see She’s got a vision So much she put me in it You wanna know if I’ve fallen for her I tell you quickly Free up some energy Cause I don’t want to do her wrong [Chorus] I did it for sho All the trips abroad (trips abroad) Max’d out credit cards (credit cards) Throwing down to Mr Chows (Mr Chows) I did it for sho Meant to let you see (let you see) You just can’t sleep on me (sleep on me) Another on will come around (around) Ohhhhhhh Ohhhhhhh There comes a time When things have to change and People have to go their separate ways and You know all the talk Beyonce with “to the left, to the left”, there’s nothing left Not here, for you So I’m putting it all on the line I’m letting you know I’ve been spending time So I need you to spin wheels And I’ll see you when I see you [Chorus] I did it for sho All the trips abroad (trips abroad) Max’d out credit cards (credit cards) Throwing down to Mr Chows (Mr Chows) I did it for sho Meant to let you see (let you see) You just can’t sleep on me (sleep on me) Another on will come around (around) I did it for sho All the love we had (love we had) You took for granted and (granted and) You thought I'd never write those vows (write those vows) I did it for sho Shouldn’t have slept on me (slept on me) Thought I’d be left lonely (I’d be left lonely) We just bought a place across town (town) Oooooh Oooooh Oooooooh Oh uh oh hoo ohhh Oooooh Oooooh Oooooooh Oh uh oh hoo ohhh Oooooh Oooooh Oooooooh Oh uh oh hoo ohhh

Citizen Zero

KAMELOT "Haven"
I wait to surface Above these bellowed growls To sweep the shallows of utopia I am the anchor And the rope around your feet In a river deep I hold you down I’ve come to stage your abdication I’m the creation of your sins Embrace me When the hounds are out Feeding me a lie When the hounds are out My sickness is released When the cards are down For all the world to see When the cards are down And the strings are cut These mannequins will sleep In the center Of your greed infected wounds I am a thorn of endless sorrow Just one of thousands In your self selected crown A king to wallow in the mire And roll in defeat… I will protect the incubation I am your bottomless decease Embrace me When the hounds are out Feeding me a lie When the hounds are out My sickness is released When the cards are down For all the world to see When the cards are down And the strings are cut These mannequins will sleep Pater noster Invidia Ira gula Superbia acedia Luxuria Avaritia Pater parce meis peccatis All I see Is mine to take To have and to hold… To suffocate All I want Is mine to keep And I want it all So father forgive me… When the hounds are out Feeding me a lie When the hounds are out My sickness is released When the cards are down For all the world to see When the cards are down And the strings are cut These mannequins will sleep

Heat

JETHRO TULL "Under Wraps"
When the rats are running and the boys are gunning for heads on a tin plate --- you can hear the footfall softly in the back yard. And the black jack is called face up on the last card. You'd better call your witness in your dirty business. Trop tard sera le cri. Better run while you can --- better set the tall sail. Better make deep cover before the boys have you nailed. There's just one chance to get away --- I'll catch up with you another day. I'll close my eyes and count to ten and come right after you again. Grab your credit cards --- cash in on your resources. Take your passport from the drawer, don't stop to change the horses. Get out of the heat. Now can you feel the pressure Have you got the measure of being a wanted man Cold drink in your hand --- hot sweat on your brow. And there's no understanding going to help you now. Grab your credit cards --- cash in on your resources. Take your passport from the drawer, don't stop to change the horses. Notify all parties of an earlier vacation. No use trying to board the train after it's left the station. Get out of the heat.

Postcards from the pink bath paint leisure As a cloaked horse through a stained-glass Saint Peter Hack faith-healer, cheat death to the very end Cherry wooden nickels on his specs for the ferrymen X, o, zodiac a pentagram expo Pet cemetery in electric fresco Abaddon threshold flesh-forged in the galley With undead orcs pulling oars through the algae Smash cut to a smoke-bombed quarantine Guards like "all signs correlate with sorcery" It's more a dormant cell of valor as awoken by the smell of sordid power And defecting shortly after Fist bump dry land, brackish, cat nap 15 Back to swiss-cheese the flagship, uh Blue in the menacing grip of a day for which you're manifestly unfit Final answer "not to be", "not to be" is right! Next question - to build winged shoes or autophagy Silk screen band tees, take apart a vcr, ringer off, canned peas Cabin fever mi amor Patiently adhering to the chandelier ta key-in-door To usher in the understated anarchy of leisureforce Led a purple tongue and ratty caballeros Up over the black rainbow into the house of mirrors To become a thousand zeroes Echoing a twisted alchemy, freak flags, fluttering to circadian free jazz Sleep apnea scratching "bring that beat back" I doze off, clothes on, noise in the feedbag Shhh.. om nom nom, blinds drawn Compost thrown to the spine pile, bygones, mangy Intimately spaced pylons on a plot of inhospitable terrain Hi mom! [Hook] Raise up the bridge, lower the portcullis, rain forks into mutton No abort button, heart pump assorted color sugar water Poor lummox, unexplained ailments, and doesn't work well with others Wet nose on the glass, garibaldi half cookie dough, lock jaw Don 4 walls like a wooden coat, behold the rotting fruit of excommunication A ruby tide insubordinate to lunar phases That maneuver past the beaches to the bosom of the pavement Now the bow drill smolder in a flooded bit of basement Grace of misled teen who prefers his scenes with a little Wilhelm scream The ambush predator edition, skill set of Will Tell Aim and speed over short distance Part hatter-mad, part erratic habitat, dark matter harnessing his heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack Midsummer bit crusher, mid winter bit shifter, no sleep, gold mine, front door circled, proceed, low light, 24 curfews, crows beak, cold night, unmoored virtue, proceed, snow-blind, 24 curfews

Commencement At The Obedience Academy

AESOP ROCK "Float"
Verse One: The harvest appeared less plentiful than last season I imagine sloppy seed handling avoke the stroke of tardy planting And the crops we'd have harnessed in mid November It only brushed the blossom bracket then soon sacrificed Lives to icicle jackets when the frosted I sunk to find the walk beneath the mosses Where the planted tunnel pass after the rains have run their courses But alas the portraits of these frosted corpses tortured in the grass Off of distorts or pour the one tall glass and nauseous And I'm asking you, why's this spy supply hiding in strangers When they know atop the food chains I could spot biters for acres Now be gracious, these minstools turn a bully's psycho civil By dissolving the candy coated image down to the pixels Yelp bringing the self-stop freedom brigade investors And the studies connecting one hit wonders with dust collectors Puts it down, and it's down beneath your sappy sing alongs So stick it further down where the daunted decide which ring I'm on Nova yell just took positions and advance march Parts playing a scheme parking the rain in my canteen now I'm like Point I guess I could spare a splash for a couple of heads Counterpoint during my famine I never got broke your bread Well equation of intrigue, yes, yes, let me fed sit for a bit These 'tensils need soaking before I hand out token Shut the fuck up drama like Kabuki with a heart of dirt Skull fucked cross bones hence my birth it hurts Chorus: Must not sleep must warn others Trust blocks creep where the dust storm hovers I milk my habitat for almost everything I want Sometimes I take it all and still can't feel this pitfall in my gut And I'm like must not sleep must warn others Trust blocks creep where the dust storm hovers I'm trying to walk on top of sunshine But it's ridiculous at times that's why I tore 'em with this warning Verse Two: Wanting the glory of our advance fire ants to water beetles Free masons adjacent debasing on pins and needles Pupil turned pedagogue benedicts into my dream Beam in a billion bottle rockets off the golden mezzanine I pluck the pedals off a classic blood rose one at a time Gripping the stem and right invite the thorns to dig up in my lifeline A metaphor for nighttime, ante up the slight cost of exhaustion To salute the moon of our paradise lost and you're a spectator Stringent, inch by sacred inch shoveling colon in my earthworm soul Borough up through the dirt with bloody digit lick my knuckles clean Noting the corporate clusters holding hands round the abode of the dam And what's your poison? Starlight and amaze her with a nicotine chaser Sip it clean savor the taste then sit and dream later The ollage pay their back upon they hinges twenty miles Across the glassy eye window of one less to passes by Now I'm six foot four with a sick flow walk up just to recline With no free time, the alarm storms at nine My daytime's on some, yes sir, okay sir, right away sir Sir do you mind if I breathe sir oh you do? Well excuse me sir fuck you I breathe slow, I'm running with these fantastic amalgams Painting casket bound careers to pierce gunning with classic albums Security's the javelin, catch it; labor Clocked in at seven six and haven't clocked out ever since Chorus: Must not sleep must warn others Trust blocks creep where the dust storm hovers I milk my habitat for almost everything I want Sometimes I take it all and still can't feel this pitfall in my gut And I'm like must not sleep must warn others Trust blocks creep where the dust storm hovers I'm trying to walk on top of sunshine But it's ridiculous at times that's why I tore 'em with this warning
