BEN HARPER lyrics - Welcome To The Cruel World

Don't Take That Attitude To Your Grave

Original and similar lyrics
You say what's mine is mine And what's yours is mine too Now you've got more than you can spend But all of the money In the whole wide world Is not gonna help you in the end Now while there's still time to be saved Don't take that attitude to your grave Might be too late for you I'm afraid Don't take that attitude to your grave Don't you take it there I hear helicopters Over my house every day Shining their lights and flying low Treat a child like a criminal From the day that he is born And you're gonna reap just what you sow Now while there's still time to be saved Don't take that attitude to your grave Might be too late for you I'm afraid Don't take that attitude to your grave Don't you take it there So you can move your court case Way across town You can move it across the whole wide globe But it ain't gonna help your court case Up in the sky When you go to put on your white robe Now while there's still time to be saved Don't take that attitude to your grave Might be too late for you I'm afraid They don't want it there Don't you take it there And you dare the children To stay off of drugs Now I dare you to stop letting them in And how dare you point your finger At a gang out on the street While it's you who is committing the sin Now while there's still time to be saved Don't take that attitude to your grave Might be too late for you I'm afraid Don't take that attitude to your grave Don't you take it there They don't want it there You know your mother taught you better Don't take that attitude to your grave

Focus

ANNAH MAC "Little Stranger"
Really should be studying But the day's so fine Just chilling at the beach Takeaways Cheap white wine Killing time whistling At every boy who walks by Time for the gym Not one looks down or acts up shy I can hear the old man in my head and I Haven't even spoken with him for a month Riding shotgun in a shirt deep red Driving us out to the wharf in bluff Girl focus Where'd this attitude come from You're my oldest Focus If I put in the time I know I'd do good Make him proud Whatever else I swear I would But there's just other things And I don't try There's nothing wrong with minimum and I get by And I can hear the old man in my head and I Haven't even spoken with him for a month Riding shotgun in a shirt deep red Driving us out to the wharf in bluff Girl focus Where'd this attitude come from You're my oldest You're my oldest No more No more early nights to re-negotiate No more Arriving home loaded with boys and beer Cause freedom comes and then it's too late It's too late It's too late Oh, oh, oh, oh Oh focus Where'd this attitude come from You're my oldest And girl I need you too show me some Focus (Oh) Focus Focus (Oh) Focus

Renegade

EMINEM
(jay z) Motherfuckers - say that I'm foolish I only talk about jewels (bling bling) Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it? See I'm influenced by the ghetto you ruined That same dude you gave nothin, I made somethin doin what I do through and through and I give you the news - with a twist it's just his ghetto point-of-view The renegade; you been afraid I penetrate pop culture, bring 'em a lot closer to the block where they pop toasters, and they live with they moms Got dropped roasters, from botched robberies niggaz crossed over Mommy's knocked up cause she wasn't watched over Knocked down by some clown when child support knocked No he's not around - now how that sound to ya, jot it down I bring it through the ghetto without ridin 'round hidin down duckin strays from frustrated youths stuck in they ways Just read a magazine that fucked up my day How you rate music that thugs with nothin relate to it? I help them see they way through it - not you Can't step in my pants, can't walk in my shoes Bet everything you worth; you lose your tie and your shirt [Eminem] Since I'm in a position to talk to these kids and they listen I ain't no politician but I'll kick it with 'em a minute Cause see they call me a menace; and if the shoe fits I'll wear it But if it don't, then y'all'll swallow the truth grin and bear it Now who's these king of these rude ludicrous lucrative lyrics Who could inherit the title, put the youth in hysterics usin his music to steer it sharin his views and his merits But there's a huge interference - they're sayin you shouldn't hear it Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit Maybe it's beautiful music I made for you to just cherish But I'm debated disputed hated and viewed in America as a motherfuckin drug addict - like you didn't experiment? Now now, that's when you start to stare at who's in the mirror and see yourself as a kid again, and you get embarrased And I got nothin to do but make you look stupid as parents You fuckin do-gooders - too bad you couldn't do good at marriage! (Ha ha!) And do you have any clue what I had to do to get here I don't think you do so stay tuned and keep your ears glued to the stereo Cause here we go - he's {*Jigga joint Jigga-chk-Jigga*} And I'm the sinister, Mr. Kiss-My-Ass it's just the [Eminem] RENEGADE! Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at, any given time of day Cause I'm a RENEGADE! Never been afraid to talk about anything (ANYTHING) anything (ANYTHING), RENEGADE! (jay z ) Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at, any given time of day Cause I'm a RENEGADE Never been afraid to holler about anything anything? Anything ANYTHING! (jay z) I had to hustle, my back to the wall, ashy knuckles Pockets filled with a lot of lint, not a cent Gotta vent, lot of innocent of lives lost on the project bench Whatchu hollerin? Gotta pay rent, bring dollars in By the bodega, iron under my coat, feelin braver Doo-rag wrappin my waves up, pockets full of hope Do not step to me - I'm awkward, I box leftier often My pops left me an orphan, my momma wasn't home Could not stress to me I wasn't grown; 'specially on nights I brought somethin home to quiet the stomach rumblings My demeanor - thirty years my senior My childhood didn't mean much, only raisin green up Raisin my fingers to critics; raisin my head to the sky Big I did it - multi before I die (nigga) No lie, just know I chose my own fate I drove by the fork in the road and went straight [Eminem] See I'm a poet to some, a regular modern day Shakespeare Jesus Christ the King of these Latter Day Saints here To shatter the picture in which of that as they paint me as a monger of hate and Satan a scatter-brained atheist But that ain't the case, see it's a matter of taste We as a people decide if Shady's as bad as they say he is Or is he the latter - a gateway to escape? Media scapegoat, who they can be mad at today See it's easy as cake, simple as whistlin Dixie while I'm wavin the pistol at sixty Christians against me Go to war with the Mormons, take a bath with the Catholics in holy water - no wonder they try to hold me under longer I'm a motherfuckin spiteful, DELIGHTFUL eyeful The new Ice Cube - motherfuckers HATE to like you What did I do? (huh?) I'm just a kid from the gutter makin this butter off these bloodsuckers, cause I'm a muh'fuckin [Eminem] RENEGADE! Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at, any given time of day Cause I'm a RENEGADE! Never been afraid to talk about anything (ANYTHING) anything (ANYTHING), RENEGADE! (jay z) Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at, any given time of day Cause I'm a RENEGADE Never been afraid to holler about anything anything? Anything ANYTHING! [Eminem] RENEGADE! Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at, any given time of day Cause I'm a RENEGADE! Never been afraid to talk about anything (ANYTHING) anything (ANYTHING), RENEGADE! (jay z) Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at, any given time of day Cause I'm a RENEGADE Never been afraid to holler about anything anything? Anything ANYTHING!

They All Get Mad At You

ATMOSPHERE "Sad Clown Bad Winter #11"
Once upon a time there was a concept Someday we can all skip the nonsense Work hard let the rewards connect and Maybe we can soup up all the trash off the front steps Silly man he believed in that ethic Seems planted the needle to the wreck Its in the plans that he set out to perfect But every few steps was a thief with a message Who speaks up for them half nights Lets seperate the players and the mascots Little miss success is a back dropping You kind of look like a jack pot Give me what you got or get got Aint no getting off at the next stop Dont get caught with a wet top I thought the best shot was the best spot, guess not They all get mad at you so see through Not much they had to do but read through Turn off the attitude they need you No time to act a fool, just be cool [2x] Now keep your defense up right, No choice but to be tense up tight, Not one type baby ever just might throw shots at your body, character even love fight But why they gotta turn them wheels in? Try not to hurt them feelings But burn pride or burn that ceiling In between the search and the curse of the dreams, man Girl look at how they stare at cha Pass judgement to gather their chapters Come back the year after the happily ever after And i wonder what the world'll look like from their ladder And now you had it up to right there Hey mama put the kid back in the high-chair Act like you care that life aint fair, nah let them finish up their nightmare They all get mad at you so see through Not much they had to do but read through Turn off the attitude they need you No time to act a fool, just be cool [2x] And when they open up them cracks you gotta overreact It dont stop it just seems so relaxed You know they never cross over them tracks With a scarf like that they keep pullin you back Is that really how it works now? Is they hurt style even worthwhile? Return it with a smirk or a smile Take yourself off the dirtpile when you had your first child Its too easy to call it envy, everybody wanna be all they can be Graffiti makes them feel so heavy but they all get friendly when your walls are empty Its always the same approach, they just want a little fiend to hold You cant save they soul, so just chase your goals Let em hate far away or let em hate up close They all get mad at you so see through Not much they had to do but read through Turn off the attitude they need you No time to act a fool, just be cool [2x]

Leave (Get Out)

JOJO "Jojo"
I've been waiting all day up for ya babe So won't cha come and sit and talk to me And tell me how we're gonna be together always Hope you know that when it's late at night I Hold on to my pillow tight And think of how you promised me forever (I never thought that anyone) Could make me feel this way (Now that you're here boy all I want) Is just a chance to say [Chorus] Get Out, (leave) right now, It's the end of you and me It's too late (now) and I can't wait for you to be gone 'Cause I know about her (who) and I wonder (why) how I bought all the lies you said that you would treat me right but you was just a waste of time (waste of time) Tell me why you're looking so confused When I'm the one who didn't know the truth How could you ever be so cold To go behind my back and call my friend Boy you must have gone and bumped your head Because you left her number on your phone (So now after all is said and done) Maybe I'm the one to blame but (To think that you could be the one) Well it didn't work out that way [Chorus] I wanted you right here with me but I have no choice you've gotta leave Because my heart is breakin' With every word I'm sayin' I gave up everything I had On something that just wouldn't last But I refuse to cry No tears won't fall from these Eyeee-eeee-eeees oh-o, no-o, oh-o Get out!!!!!! [Chorus X3]

Big Time

Linda Eder "It's Time"
He said, You've got the goods to make the big time And then he puffed on his cigar We'll make a killing, We'll get top billing I'm gonna make you a star First we'll improve a bit on mother nature I've got a doctor friend you see Imagination, Plus augmentation Viola! A brand new me Up here in the big time, you need big time looks A shady accountant who can cook the books A couple of well-placed friends, Some dynamite eight-by-tens Before you can reap those big time dividends Before you know it I was moving up there Don Perignon and caviar A late night Yes sir , leads to good press sir And takes a girl pretty far So now my name's in lights above the title Or it's not on the dotted line On the back lots now, I call the shots now When there's a contract to sign I'm up in the big time, so I make them wait I'm up in the big time, so I'm always late I tell them all Let's do lunch , Then give them that one, two, punch I'm part of the big brass, first class, big time bunch Big! Big time! Big time games! I Hit the right places I Cover my bases I Do what I have to Smile till it hurts baby, Wear shorter skirts baby, Cry in a pinch baby, But I won't dare give a single square inch, baby! Up here in the big time, I've got big time friends Who wanna make sure my big time never ends My motto is I've got mine , I live on the bottom line Up here in the a-team, wet dream, big, big time It's comin' up roses, And Barrymore noses Worth all the sweat dear Worth it? - You bet! When you make the climb, From the nickel and dime, To the simply sublime... Big time!
