Corporate America

Original and similar lyrics
(Tom Scholz) Who can stop de-evolution of the human race? Look at you, Corporate America, you're in disgrace Globalize; cigarettes, business jets, you love it Maximize; but you can take your bottom line and shove it Gotta get away (gotta get away) Gotta get away, but I need a little help tonight What 'ya gonna say (what 'ya gonna say) What 'ya gonna say when you never even seen the light See the light Corporate America, look out, look out Corporate America, who's gonna save us, who's gonna save us now? You and I; DVDs, SUVs and cyberspace Flying blind, virtual reality is in our face This Earth desecrated by the human race Now what's it worth? When do we evacuate to outer space? Corporate America, look out, look out Corporate America, who's gonna save us, who's gonna save us now? I see the future in the past Just took the corner way too fast, the reckless ride of modern man Flattened everything that stands Fooled by the sales pitch for progress at a dizzy pace We idolize the filthy rich for giving us synthetic taste Computer calls, urban sprawl Is the world a better place, is the world a better place? Fare thee well, global extinction's forever So what the hell, order your Mercedes in leather Veal crates, ozone holes, and toxic waste And don't count out religious hate Who can survive this manmade fate? Gotta get away Gotta get away, and I need a little help tonight What 'ya gonna say Wha 'ya gonna say when you couldn't even see the light See the light Yeah

A Ballad For The Fallen Soldier

JAY-Z "The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse"
[Jay-Z] This here's a ballad for all the fallen soldiers I'ma bout 'ta show you how a hustlers life (this is life man) and a soldier's life, parallel And the one thing they got in common is pain (forget about me for a second) Picture split screen On one side we got a hustler getting ready for the block (human beings) Other side you got the soldier getting ready for bootcamp (soldiers) They're both at war (this is life) Stay with us [Chorus] Did you ever notice, before you think, life goes fast So don't you worry, about what you see, it will pass [Verse 1] You lost him mama, the wars calling him Feel its his duty to fall in line with all of them He's a soldier Rose through the ranks as the head of your house hold Now its time to provide bank Like he's supposed tah Now just remember while he's going to November Theres part of him growing up His shirts soaks up your tears as he holds yah Your heart beatin so fast speeding his pulse up Yeah i know it sucks, Life aint a rose bud A couple of speed bumps You gotta take your lumps Off to Bootcamp, the worlds facing terror Bin Laden been happenin in Manhatten Crack was anthrax back then, back when Police was Al'Qaeda to black men While I was out there hustling sinning with no religion He was off the wall killing for a living [Chorus] [Verse 2] Days turn to nights, nights turn to years Years turn to 'how the fuck we make it in here' My barracks average couple fights a day Get you locked in a hole wont see the light of day And I feel like I'm just writing my life away I never thought shit could end up quite this way There's a war going on outside no man is safe from I'm here for the good fight only the fakes run I'm here for the purple heart, if I cant take one For my team or my siblings whats my reason for living I love my niggas more then anything else This war's about my family, me needin the wealth You dont understand how useless as men we felt Till you become a 5 star general Shout out to my niggas that's locked in jail P.O.W.'s thats still in the war for real [Chorus] Your baby boy is getting grown So your baby boy is moving on I've gotta chase (gotta chase it) If I'm gonna make it (gonna make it) Your baby boy is getting grown So your baby boy is moving on I'm gonna make it Even if I gotta take it (gotta take it) [Verse 3] Mama said pray your sons becoming a man This wars taxin to 'em like Uncle Sam Hear the noise make the right choice, understand Every choice that he make he makes it for his fam It's death before dishonour And if hes gone you should honor his memory Dont cry we all gonna die eventually But if he's locked in the penetentiary send him some energy They all winners to me (What's up kid) [Chorus]

Gangland

The Business
You Grow up fast thinking nothing will last you grow up hard, so young and so scared When your poor you got nothing to lose just a life full of anger and booze So when your backs up against the wall and your mates can't hear you call when the wolves gather in their packs and there's no time for you to look back ain't no light gonna shine on hate only darkness on this side of town Wiyth guns we shoot each other away when your living dead in a crime wave you got junkies on your stairway wanting something for free spray paint on the brick walls your firm's name big and tall Gangland - Life - Fury the only place that matters to me ain't no light gonna shine on me cause there ain't no life on my street
