Periphery

Original and similar lyrics
Oh, the periphery They throw good parties there Those peripheral idiots Always have a bite to bare Bear it if you can If you really want to Go to the periphery Have them celebrate your name Have them forge you a pedigree and then you'll be Left to run the races lame But if you want If you think it's worth it Go now, with me Cause I don't appreciate People who Don't appreciate All that loving must've been lacking something If I got bored trying to figure you out You let me down I don't even like you anymore at all Oh, the periphery I lost another one there He found a prettier girl than me With a more even-tempered air And if he wants her, he should get her Cause I think he thinks she's worth it And maybe they'll move from the periphery By themselves, or on a plot of land And I'll care in a different capacity, I'll just be Hoping he makes a good family man And if he finds himself yearning For his throne on the silly side Nothing wrong as long as he's learning Besides, you can take it up with his brethren Or with his bride, just not with me Cause I don't appreciate People who Don't appreciate All that loving must've been lacking something If I got bored trying to figure you out You let me down I don't even like you anymore at all Oh, the periphery Oh, the periphery Oh, the periphery Oh, the periphery Stay away Stay away Away, away Stay away, away

My 1st Song

JAY-Z "The Black Album"
[Notorious B.I.G. interview] I'm just, tryin to stay above water y'know Just stay busy, stay workin Puff told me like, the key to this joint The key to staying, on top of things is treat everything like it's your first project, knahmsayin? Like it's your first day like back when you was an intern Like, that's how you try to treat things like, just stay hungry [Verse One: Jay-Z] Uhh, uhh, yes, yes Y'all wanna know, why he don't stop Y'all wanna know, why he don't flop Let me tell you pe-eople why Came from the bottom of the block I When I was born, it was sworn, I was never gon' be shit Had to pull the opposite out this bitch Had to get my ri-ide on Eyes on the prize, Shawn knew I had to Had to had to get these chips Had to make moves like Olajuwon Started out sellin dimes and nicks Graduated to a brick No exaggeration, my infatuation with the strip Legendary like a schoolboy Crushin merely nearly every every chick Heavy shit - that's how schoolboy got whipped And got left on some 'Just +Me, Myself and I+' On some Trugoy shit Had your boys threw place up, to a place of no return Had to play with fire and get burned Only way the boy ever gon' learn Had to lay way in the cut, 'til I finally got my turn Now I'm on top in the spot that I earned [Chorus] It's my life - it's my pain and my struggle The song that I sing to you it's my ev-ery-thing Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first And my thirst is the same as - when I came It's my joy and my tears and the laughter it brings to me It's my ev-ery-thing [Verse Two: Jay-Z] Like I never rode in a limo Like I just dropped flows to a demo Like it's ninety-two again and And I got O's in the rental Back in the Stu' again, no prob' livin was a whole lot simpler When you think back, you thought that you would never make it this far, then you take advantage of the luck you handed Or the talent, you been given Ain't no, half steppin, ain't no, no slippin Ain't no different from a block that's hidden Gotta get it while the getting's good Gotta strike while the iron's hot, 'fore you stop Then you gotta bid it, good riddance Goodbye, this is my second major breakup My first was, with a pager With a hooptie, a cookpot, and the GAME This one's with the stool, with the stage, with the fortune Maybe not the fortune, but certainly the FAME [Chorus] It's my life - my pain and my struggle The song that I sing to you it's my ev-ery-thing Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first And my thirst is the same as - when I came It's my joy and my tears and my laughter it brings to me It's my ev-ery-thing Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first And my thirst like the first song I sang [Outro: Jay-Z] Woo! It's like the blues - we gon' ride out on this one Ta-tah, be-hah Yo Hah, 'member you was makin them dashes for them niggaa at radio and shit?

Castles

JOE BUDDEN "No Love Lost"
[Verse 1:] My castle started shrinking, something's gotta give Ended up being the smallest place that I had ever lived One of the reasons I would do away with fame, to say the least Don't know who these people are, their names ain't on the lease It's a different type of monster, entertainment is a beast Was supposed to eat together, then I became the main feast If you preying on my kindness, taking advantage of Joe's cool I'd have to ask, what's your definition of soul food? I bust my ass for my whole life, and I worked hard for my profit And envy I know cuts like a knife, so you probably work hard to stop it If you know me like you claim then how could you disregard my logic? You know I cut my arm short and put my heart in my pocket A pretty good judge of character, maybe I mistaked a few Cut some people off, but had no choice, it's what they made me do Why would you take advantage when it's something I'd have gave to you? And in the long run, it doesn't take from me, it takes from you You'll probably tell me I'm a fucked up nigga You got it wrong, I just won't be fucked up with you Which forces me get distant, and I never want to act a way with you But passion and desire never blends with lackadaisical No longer enable you, that's no longer favorable But pride is on your sleeve so you'll just act like nothing phases you Which can never equal good, in fact So love can't be lost, I know exactly where I put it at [Interlude:] Word. Got no problem with nobody though So have no problem with me. Figured No beef, no malice. I got no vendetta with y'all So I only want better for myself Might even want better for y'all [Verse 2:] My castle started shrinking, I tried my best to fight it Don't know how it happened, don't know how they got invited Was good with cabin fever, and maybe that helped create the space Fuck your good intentions, more concerned with what's taking place But everyone feels entitled, made up their mind they got a right to My peers transforming right before my eyes into my rivals Y'all can have the cars, ya'll can have the clothes, take all that shit that I don't love I'm learning fast that recognition is it's own drug And what's worse than some of your actions being feminine Is I got no way of knowing if your moves are really genuine You there when it's bright, better be there when it's dark You wasn't there for the ride, don't be there when I park Figure I love niggas enough to let the world come and stay with me And I'll stay trapped in this room to keep ya'll away from me What's supposed to happen when I'm not hot anymore? Your job rely on me being crazy, but what if I'm not anymore? The funny shit, them molly's were cool when we all were doing em But nobody recalled when I was the only one they were ruining I learned a long time ago in life that not much is fair So No Love Lost, but not much is there Deja vu, this happened rapidly before Everyday's a constant struggle and you're a casualty of war Which could only equal good, in fact So love isn't lost, I know exactly where I put it at
