Original and similar lyrics
A FERVORED IMAGE OF ANOTHER WORLD IS NOTHING IN PARICULAR NOW AND IMITATION COMES NATURALLY BUT I NEVER REALLY STOP TO THINK HOW AND EVERYONEIS A CLEVER CLONE A CHROME COVERED CLONE AMI SO IN THE ABSENCE OF A WAY OF LIFE JUST REPEAT THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN [CHORUS] HEY HEY COME OUT TONIGHT HEY HEY COME OUT TONIGHT POPSCENE ALRIGHT I'M LEAVING TOWN TO RUN AWAY RUN INTO YOUR TWISTED ARMS NO QUEUES AND THERE'S NO PANIC THERE JUST DANGLING MY FEET IN THE GRASS MY LACK OF NATURAL LUSTRE NOW SEEMS TO BE LOOSING ME FRIENDS SO IN THE ABSENCE OF A WAY OF LIFE I'LL REPEAT THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN [CHORUS]

24 Hours

10CC "Windows In The Jungle"
Here on the street Feeling the cool of the dawn Shuffling feet Faces are ragged and worn They've been working all night Waiting for the curtain to rise While you're under the sheets You with the stars in your eyes Letter box noise Snapping the day into life Newspaper boys Cutting the mist like a knife We're beginning to rise Curtain up the drama begins It's the start of the race All of us wanting to win People rushing shouting pushing Got no time for conversation Inner city population The struggle for communication People trying pressure rising Hook and hustle flex your muscle It's all part of living Do you wanna get away Restaurant smells Mix in the heat of the day Telephone bells Kissogram girls on her way Someone's thinking of you Birthday boy is in for a treat And the message is clear Once a year life can be sweet Caught in a flash Cover girl freezes her smile Media trash Blinding the crowd with such style It's a dazzling affair A fantasy to star in your dreams Do you want to believe Everyone knows what they've seen Twilight time in the city And the shutters are down That's when the singles are lost in their doubles The happy hour comes round To help you unwind in the shadows Takes the tension away It's been a hell of a day in the city Now it's your time to play Living under pressure Do you wanna buy a dream I say Phil can you get it he say Alright alright alright Tell me when can I get it he say Tonight tonight tonight I want money on delivery hey That's right that's right that's right I say baby don't you trust me he say The city's a jungle where the strongest survive Neonic heat Flooding the darkness with light The capitol beats Feeding the pulse of the night It's the music of life Listen to the sound of the crowd Where the rhythm's so strong And the music is playing so loud Where the rhythm's so strong And the music is playing so....

Bulldog Baby

Echobelly "Lustra"
Stood up at a border street A souped up strut on swollen feet My loss remembered incomplete What memory knows I can't repeat Offered army soul salvation Sandwich choice of God and nation Haloed voices, chiselled faces Fill my head with empty spaces Out of the breakdown of the whole Back to the choices on repeat Out of a life put on hold Once again a bulldog baby Classified as cheap and lazy Inner pity meat mutation Pay the price for approbation Welcome to the new dictators Power, drugs and imitators Out of the breakdown of the whole Back to the choices on repeat Out of a life put on hold Mother's dressed in alligator All good children love to hate her Out of the breakdown of the whole Back to the choices on repeat Out of a life put on hold Into the fallout of belief

BLACK STAR "Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star"
[Talib Kweli] So many emcees focusin on black people extermination We keep it balanced with that knowledge of self, determination It's hot, we be blowin the spots, with conversations C'mon let's smooth it out like Soul Sensation We in the house like Japanese in Japan, or Koreans in Korea Head to Philly and free Mumia with the Kujichagulia TRUE Singin is swingin and writin is fightin, but what they writin got us clashin like titans it's not excitin No question, bein a black man is demandin The fire's in my eyes and the flames need fannin (3X) With that what? (Knowledge Of Self) Determination *repeat 4X* [singer] Things I say and do, may not come quite through My words may not convey just what I'm feelin [Talib Kweli] Yes yes come on, yes yes Knowledge Of Self is like life after death With that you never worry about your last breath Death comes, that's how I'm livin, it's the next days The flesh goes underground, the book of life, flip the page Yo they askin me how old, we livin the same age I feel the rage of a million niggaz locked inside a cage At exactly which point do you start to realize That life without knowledge is, death in disguise? That's why, Knowledge Of Self is like life after death Apply it, to your life, let destiny manifest Different day, same confusion, we're gonna take this hip-hop shit and keep it movin, shed a little light Now y'all bloomin like a flower with the power of the evident Voices and drums original instruments In the flesh presently presentin my representation With that what? (Knowledge Of Self) Determination *repeat 6X* - - - - these two parts overlap - - - - Things I say and do, may not come quite through My words may not convey just what I'm feelin *repeat 2X* [Talib Kweli] The most important time in history is, NOW, the present So count your blessings cause time can't define the essence But you stressin over time and you follow the Roman calendar These people enter Cona like Gattaca, you can bet they tryin to lock you down like Attica, the African diaspora represents strength in numbers, a giant can't slumber forever I know you gotta get that cheddar whatever Aiyyo I heard you twice the first time money, get it together You must be History, you repeatin yourself out of the pages You keepin yourself depleatin your spiritual wealth That quick cash'll get your ass quick fast in houses of detention Inner-city concentration camps where no one pays attention or mentions the ascension of death, til nothing's left The young, gifted and Black are sprung addicted to crack All my people where y'all at cause, y'all ain't here And your hero's using your mind as a canvas to paint fear With, broad brush strokes and tales of incarceration You get out of jail with that Knowledge of Self determination Stand in ovation, cause you put the Hue in Human Cause and effect, effect everything you do and that's why I got love in the face of hate Hands steady so the lines in the mental illustration is straight The thought you had don't even contemplate Infinite like figure eight there's no escape.. From that what? (Knowledge Of Self) Determination *repeat 4X* Things I say and do, may not come quite through My words may not convey just what I'm feelin *repeat 2X* .. Things I say and do, may not come quite through My words may not convey just what I'm feelin *repeat 2X* What I'm feelin, what I'm feelin, ooooh, what I'm feelin...

A Day In The Life

DIAMOND
featuring Brand Nubian [Lord Jamar] Aw yeah back to basics kicking shit in Asics it's like this It's just a day in the life (of three black men) (Repeat 3x) Day one... I wake up to the sun in the morning after justice hour Refinement is in order so I bust this shower Get dressed but first my mind gets blessed Not words but best cess compressed in a philly Silly of me to think that I Could ever have a morning where the phone didn't ring, I am sir A sweet young thing, once a romancer I didn't really fancy her, so build equality I get a beep downstairs from Y.Z.O. Knowledge in his head, beats pump the red Geo Tracker, and in it, we get much blacker Ride around town running down crackers Last Sunday of the month so to Harlem we went Not clubbing, the parliaments of Harriet Tubman Peace to the Gods, peace to the earths Peace to the seeds, peace to the birth Of the nation of the 5% That's it, I tell the gent brothers to represent We left the rally now we're maxing uptown 8th Ave, 25th, 45th, and the Polo Grounds And when it's time to refuel Lord Jamar jump in the car, say Back to the Rule It's like that y'all, you know it's as sharp as a knife It's just a day in the life, it's just a day in the life [Diamond] It's just a day in the life (of three black men) (Repeat 3x) Day two, yo check this out Every day when I wake up, phone calls seem to take up My time, but I don't mind because it's fine I don't get heated even though I can't sleep Jump in the shower, then I brush the teeth Hit the stereo in an instant Then I twist up a bud, light an insync Call up a honey if I'm not feeling sunny Or call up my boys when I want to make noise The brother Lord Jamar, the brother Derek X Ahem, oh I forgot, I meant Sadat X and I flex when I'm writing a rhyme I got thousands in the bank but I never did a crime Afternoons I go shopping, but I don't lift Back in '84 I used to wear K-Swiss Catch me in Yonkers in the mall buying gear Take in a movie and sit in the rear I might be in the studio hard at work Making hype tracks that sell by the stacks When it gets dark, I chill with my cutie We almost broke up because she started acting snooty When I'm with the fellas, I hit the clubs The building, Red Zone, always see a head flown But I walk away from the bullshit And you don't stop, and you don't quit [Sadat X] It's just a day in the life (of three black men) (Repeat 3x) Day three... I wake up after 8, a shower, then I take a shower See a tip from last night still left in the tray Some stick of boom music cause I found a fat L Nine times out of ten I used to start this way Then I study jewels and gems instead of Christianity hymns Then walk past him to see my man Marco Polo who works in sports stuff Your two shirts that's tough, a baldie that's rough Call up the Gods, slide to three main places We know a lot of faces so the romp game came work Do you think that I'm a jerk because on my face there's a smirk? Used to party to party rock from body to body But my nightly smokes are spent on the cool down low Rolling up dough and doing mad shows Not dealing with hoes because AIDS is a bitch In the nightime I get rich because kids pump the tape Uptown Bronx from the porch to the fire escape, and you don't stop So to my prehistoric days and dinosaur phase I was completely energized using Islamic rays I'm the royal highness, so clear your sinus Put your trust in the plus and conceal the minus Your head's unravelling, my force is of a javelin Your tounge is in a knot and you're babbling on To the pre test is the God human? Come from the darkness to where I'm looming The hardest working man, ever I see a land I got the power to devour what MC's withstand
