I'm Not Satisfied

Original and similar lyrics
It's hard - can't afford to stop Keep on working - till you're fit to drop Then comes the weekend and my troubles go away Monday morning brings them back again No, no, no I'm not satisfied Can't there be - more to life I can't see - reasons why Going steady - have been a while Ain't ready - not by a mile I try to tell her that I'm not he marrying kind She tells me she's gonna change my mind No, no, no I'm not satisfied Can't there be - more to life I can't see - reasons why I want a place to go I could go - leave these streets alone Everywhere you go now is just misery There's no hope living in this city No, no, no I'm not satisfied Can't there be - more to life I can't see - reasons why

Think Fast

CRAZY TOWN "Gift Of Game"
You Know that bitch baby he's talking shit about our clique but he don't Crazy You see the writing on my dick You know that trick, Tracy yeah, she's making me sick living that life we used to do the same shit shit gets drastic some kids need help some need there ass kicked and some would never learn to earn there own way living of their daddy had he not been rich they'd be broker than a joke and forced to switch you gotta change your tune or change your pitch because life ain't easy man life's a bitch shit is harder than hard about as hard can get keep on going were you're headed you's alive to regret it yes it hurts to face the truth and realize that the worlds got your neck in a noose if things ain't like they ought to be you 've got to think fast the aftermath of your actions whiplash. I know you all tired of these wannabe thugs claiming the real be running, grabbing the steel thinking they're going to peel my niggas cap roaming the streets with black hats chrome straps sipping on brew ready to react of any nigga they see that nigga could be my capital I.C.E. got a muther fucking .357 to put eleven holes in their chest thinking they could test a real riderfrom the west I roll flossin' me and my girlfriend nina ross and the ghettos' been good to me but you've got to take precautions Brothers get got what they least expect it or neglect it You'll never catch the dirty in the streets without protection Nowadays you got to pull shit Haters on some bullshit jumpin' out of cadillacs and low lows with a full clip If your tool spits Shake the spot or get your duck on Cause if you press your luck on Stupid is what you're stuck on. That girl shelia got a daugter She be clubbing every night Shelia had her daughter young still that just ain't right Plus she rides the white horse She used to ride my pony If I hit it now, I'd break it 'Cause Sheila's just too bony. Smoking speed released the lions I'm not lying I'm not sober I'm still tryingh Hiding the truth With substitutes a hundred proof A fuck up. face it One of L.A.'s wasted youth Label me as an enemy of the lost star My family's not too happy with the trouble that I've caused See we be breaking the law Somking on non-menthols thinking fast so I'm ready for any all out brawls And ya. Brothers get your hustle on Ballers and get your shit tight House parties get shot up And turned up before midnight Drive-bys and fistfights Zig zag and crack pipes There's a fifty fifty chance That tonight will be your last night.

In The Back Of My Mind

BEACH BOYS "Today"
I'm blessed with everything A world to which a man can cling So happy times when I break out in tears In the back of my mind I still have my fears I live my life with her Love her true she knows I'm sure I make her happy just living so plain In the back of my mind I'm 'fraid it's gonna change I tried to run far way from thoughts I should try to keep away But they just keep coming back to me I tried to rationalize But some day I might realize That things are just good the way they'll be I know it's so hard to find A girl who really understands your mind What will I do if I leave her It will always be way in the back of my mind

Five State Drive

LESS THAN JAKE "Hello Rockview"
Got on the 47, Transferred to the 89 Left town eastbound past all the city signs And y'know sometimes it's hard to leave, Your past behind and as I pass the crummy bars And beat up cars nothing's Gonna change my mind this time By now you think I'be found that Things changed, Just don't look That way to me. By now you think I've found That things change, And look rearraged to me. It never used to look That way to me. At half past seven I'm on the 95 Sick of malls and alcohol Just passed the next state line And I know sometimes it's hard To leave your past behind And as I think of the corner creeps And dirty streets nothing will change My mind, There's no turning back this time And when going off is like going on And never going back is just like giving up It's like I'm going nowhere fast.

Citysong

LUSCIOUS JACKSON "Natural Ingredients"
I'm taking the side streets Crusing down the alleyways Feeling the cool breeze Across my face I'm losing to find And I'm breaking to fix Cause I'm not fit To go on like this Music in my head The rhythm keeps me fed These sounds surround me In high frequencies There's no place like home There's no place like home Stone alone In the city of bastard roots When I'm about to go crazy Cause I'm still living here I just get my friends together And we dance,dance,dance Cause this is the state of the world This city tells me what it's like to live Hey bike messenger What's your name Have you got the time To talk to me Tell you what We'll sit on this here stoop And talk all about you We'll just keep sitting here Til you roll on through Serico he's still around Screwed up police ya might get found City crime's for city cops You've got to know The streets you rock The subway tells the story here This is the place to disappear I live in my open mind And I'll die in my open mind

The Hard Way

Kinks "The Kinks Present Schoolboys in Disgrace"
Boys like you were born to waste, You never listen to a word I say And if you think you're here to mess around, You're making a big mistake, 'Cos you're gonna find out the hard way, You gonna find out the hard way. No matter what I do or say, You're much too dumb to educate. One day life's going to turn around and slap you in the face, Then you're gonna find out the hard way. You'll take the hard way, Gonna take the hard way. Well, you'll do it your way and I'll do it my way, And we'll see who's the one to survive. You'll find that with no foundation Or qualifications There's no way that you can get by, No, there's no way you can get by. Why don't you take the easy way? Why don't you co-operate? Don't just sit there and vegetate. Do you want to end up illiterate? You think that life's a vacation And you've no inclination To dust away the cobwebs of your mind. Now it's time for confrontation And I'm tired of being patient, So I've got to be cruel to be kind. You've got to be cruel to be kind. I'm wasting my vocation teaching you to write neat When you're only fit to sweep the streets. Your intellect is such That it requires a killer's touch. So I'm going to play it your way, We'll take the hard way. Going to take the hard way, You can take the hard way. Gonna take the hard way, Gonna take the hard way.
