Tears From My Inkwell

Original and similar lyrics
Sunrise Serenade Glen Gray (#1 in 1939) - words by Jack Lawrence, music by Frankie Carle Good mornin' Good mornin' You sleepyhead It's dawnin' Stop yawnin' Get out of that bed Say the air is soft as silk It's time to get the mornin' milk Come on! Wake up! Get up! Look at the grass Silver in the sun Heavy with the dew Look at the buds You can almost see How they're breakin' through Look at the birds Feedin' all their young In the sycamores But you better get on With your mornin' chores Just take a breath Of that new-mown hay And the sugarcane Looks like tonight There should be a moon Down in lovers' lane There you go daydreaming When it's time that you obeyed That sunrise serenade

Good Mourning

TALIB KWELI "Reflection Eternal"
Good morning, Brook-nam Another stop... on the train (wake up... wake up... wake up...) We come to a stop that everybody got to make... Whether you local or express [Talib Kweli] What's the meanin of ghettofabulous Not ridin the back of the bus I'm a revolutionary antagonist Some playas is mad at us for just doin our music out of love Some underground heads is hatin cause we have fun at clubs I'm probably on some government list for my rhymin You a fool if you don't think they already tapped your line Medicine is big business so my remedies is herbal It's music is for the people so we Reflection Eternal Listen, you hear the difference between science and science fiction We blow it out like if you leave on every appliance in the kitchen at once; still rolling kind bud in Cuban blunts On the corner watchin how kids comin to Brooklyn for they fronts Niggas run past what they need chasing after what they want Fuckin chumps, you walk down the street and get jumped Brooklyn cats like to bubble out of town no lookin back When you a ghetto chef you mastered the art of cookin crack Some get caught sleepin on the Mother City so when they go They come back as tales of niggas we used to know Never looked up to see the stars in all they heavenly glory Just straight ahead cause the peripheral is buildings with mad stories Not floors but dramas is played out, shorties get laid out like respect and fade out like TV sets into the banks of our memories (let it be) we'll never forget you Lyin on your deathbed askin for God to bless you [Hook: Talib Kweli] Good mourning, good afternoon, good night What have you done with your life Everybody time comes to be embraced by the light You only scared to die when you ain't livin right, man I'm puttin up a hellafied fight {*Hi Tek scratch: Stay awake to the ways of the world *} [Talib Kweli] I need you all to be clear on exactly what I'm sayin With your attention span I understand that I ain't playin You mistaken if you somehow think it's just me you facin Starin me down while your enemy is standin adjacent My heart is racin but I know just what I stand for We chasin death carelessly like +Jessica+, I +Care Moore+ Who said, Just because no one can understand how you speak don't necessarily mean that what you be sayin is deep In case you die in your sleep you ask the Lord for a blessin Sometimes they sneak up so quiet that the silence is deafenin You'll never know who the assassin is until it's your time to go Your life is flashin, askin for forgiveness but you move too slow Now the people that you love bear the pain that you once harbored You was livin for yourself so you could never be a martyr Life is hard, death is harder; you somebody baby father Someone's lover, son of your mother, somebody brother Somebody nigga, now your spirit in the air like a whisper Hearin your name mentioned when we pourin out some liquor The days go by quicker and the nights don't seem to differ It's gettin cold, so I shivered and asked my soul to be delivered [Hook: Talib Kweli] Good mourning, good afternoon, good night What have you done with your life Everybody time comes to be embraced by the light You only scared to die when you ain't livin right, man I'm puttin up a hellafied fight {*Hi Tek scratch: Stay awake to the ways of the world *} [Talib Kweli] Yo, the time come for everybody.. It ain't somethin you can really prepare for Yo, yo, Mad Duke, rock rock on and Curtis Mayfield, rock rock on and Grover Washington, rock rock on and My Aunt Hazel, rock rock on and Big L, rock rock on and Freaky Tah rock rock on and Jerome Green, rock rock on and Slang Ton, rock rock on and We celebrate life.. {*echoes*}

Late Bloomer

Bouncing Souls
I saw you walking past me just the other day, another heartbeat with thoughts of yesterday You looked the same, years are only time, I still wonder why our hearts could never rhyme. You stood beside me, you didn't recognize me., funny how things never change. And when you walked on by a memory surprised me, smoking cigarettes, your girlfriends by the pool. Your smell I could not forget, that's as close as i could get you were so fucking cool. I'm no good, you're no better, wouldn't we be perfect together? All I wanted was a piece of your heart, you left me torn apart. Fuck the rest before me and their crimes, for your love I'll serve their time I'm no good, you're no better wouldn't we be perfect together?

The Good Die Young

2PAC "Still I Rise"
[Talk] These is hard times we livin' in Churches burnin, planes fallin from the sky Murder, the good die young The good definitely die young This is a lil' somethin' To help you get through the day If you could It was more than a tragedy Emotions be grabbin' me Plane fell from the sky We tryin' to figure what happened Burnin' churches, fearin' God Who can be so cruel We all ignorant to AIDS Till it happens to you Just be a man, make plans Listen to your voice A woman's tryin' to make decisions We should leave them a choice Cause who are we to say who lives and die Breathes and stops All this judgement on other lives Needs to stop What are we livin' for Givin' more back than takin' On my knees still waitin' for my own salvation Now I feel abandoned cause Pat Bucanan say I'm greedy You can take my taxes, send me to war But can't feed me It's so easy to regret things After they done Babies catchin' murder cases Scared to laugh in the sun The tragedies that we all need Love in doses In times like these we feel closest The good die young Does anybody have an answer why It seems the good die young Can anybody tell me why Can anybody tell me why (2x) Now in my world will it get worse When I been trapped since birth But I had to sleep in a hearse Cause it was my bed first My grands probably burnin' Turnin' in they grave Some folks ain't even get to see a high age But they did so I ain't afraid And this money got me feelin like a star And this murder got me Feelin like my death ain't far And the land (?) and stolen cars Don't get no better Don't get no weaker or no harder I was raised in a rush without my moms And my father So tell me somethin If I grab my gat and get the dumpin' Would God get to lookin' at me funny Rest in peace to my mother Aquillah Beale Rest in peace to my father Salek Beale Rest in peace to my grandparents And thug in peace to my brother Seike You know I love you Witch world first storms (?) and then Al Pac and then Yak Redrey (?) Brown Coulda' sworn I seen ya face in a cloud Family grievin' on your last breath Close to the heart whether you know it or not I swear the love won't stop Jewel, that's my boo Mom, Duke and Lou >From jump You kept it true, helped to feed the crew The good die young Livin' fast jumpin' the gun Mama blamin' the community for killin' her son My cousin Darren wasn't scared of goin' But never knowin' he was dyin' slower I guess I see ya when I see ya soulja Does anybody have an answer why It seems the good die young Can anybody tell me why Can anybody tell me why I know my life ain't promised That's why the wise move in silence Analize these scandalous times It's hard dogg but we manage Schools turn to war zones Even homes unsafe Leavin' children to play caged and raged They hate, how come Someone explain why the good die young Why the bad die slow and outlive everyone It's time somethin' is done For our young kids They growin' opus (??) That ain't the way to live Tell me why Days go past and as they pass Time move quicker No time for wastin' Put your hustle down my young dealers Cause the end is nearer But at least that's what they tellin' me Hell, all I know brothers Ain't ridin' 4 3 felonys It's time to plan, plot, and strategize Capitolize, mobilize We in the war y'all It's for all y'all My family to the ones that stabbed (?) me Little bit mo' love is what's recommended Yeah, and it's plain to see The seeds from you and me Gon' be the ones to lead us towards unity That's if we treat them right Man, teach them right Raise your kids better than you was And see what it does But if you don't Man, we sho' to be done We'll all see exactly why the good die young Does anybody have an answer why It seems the good die young Can anybody tell me why Can anybody tell me why (2x) [Talk] This is for all my homeboys that passed away And all yo' homeboys that passed away I send this out to all the fallen soldiers That's in the cemetaries buried Never got to see they dreams For everything I touch you touch For every step I take you take For every breath I breather you breathe Every dollar I make you make I told you we'd make it to the sunshine one day You just got there a little quicker But like my homeboys Thugs say I'll catch ya at the crossroads The good die young This song is dedicated to all them Young kids and people that are innocent That died young At Columbine High Rest in Peace (Oklahoma) Outlawz Lil' young Xzandafer Tasha, all them All the fallen kids The dead babies The closed caskets

Good Man Is Gone

JOELL ORTIZ "Free Agent"
[sample of Monk Higgins' "A Good Man is Gone"] "If he had left here in a natural way I would feel better when I hear me, say A good man is gone" [Joell Ortiz] In a natural way, then what? Haha What? Uhh, uhh A half a G and E&J out in the big park When it got dark we occasionally let the fifth bark You was a hustler, I was a rhyme writer You would serve customers, I would ignite cyphers We rode around, try and get ass in a white Mazda 'til one day you just disappeared like my father (hey) 'Member you talkin 'bout that out-of-town dough You was drunk, most of the time I ain't think you'd be out yo You was drunk, most of the time I ain't think you'd be out yo Sure did, took your wife and your kid out to P-A Right around my B-day; guess you had it mapped out Always knew the crack route Had them kids in that small town shook rollin dice with your gat out I visited time to time, I had to check my dude You had the hoes on a string, they always blessed the crew A shotgun shell turned my man flesh to stew Damn Jizz, we miss you [Chorus: Joell Ortiz] A good man is gone {"A good man is gone, gone, gonnnne"} Gone, a good man is gone {"A good man is gone, gone, gonnnne"} A good man is gone {"A good man is gone, gone, gonnnne"} A good man is gone {"A good man is gonnnnne"} Gone, gone, gone {"A good man is gone"} [Joell Ortiz] Uhh, I met you at Sue's Rendezvous on a Tuesday Flex spinnin, I see it like it was today Block Royal emblem on your Polo tee Handsome nigga, no homo B, you had that glow though see I 'member you asked why I'm so low-key With such a fire mixtape I need a promo V You introduced me to the family, took it out to Jers' Studio in the basement when I pronounce the words Studio in the basement when I pronounce the words I 'member you goin crazy, "Told you he get his flame on" Right after that's when you introduced me to Akon We 'posed to get a track that was nuts like acorns Years since you gone I'm still gettin my wait on Anyway, your boy gettin his fame on Aftermath gang, got my Eminem and my Dre on Still rep B-R, know I carry the name on Damn Screw, we miss you [Chorus w/ minor variations] [Joell] Uhh!

Line 'Em Up

JAMES TAYLOR "Hourglass"
I remember Richard Nixon back in '74 and the final scene at the White House door and the staff lined up to say good-bye, tiny tear in his shifty little eye, he said, 'nobody knows me, nobody understands. These little people were good to me, oh I'm gonna shake some hands.' Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. At that time my heart was all broke, I looked like ashes and smelled like smoke and I turned away from my loving kind, try to leave my body and live in my mind but it's much too much emotion to hold it in your hand. They've got waves out on the ocean, they're gonna wear away the land, Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Oh, I've seen corn in Kansas and I've seen picket fences and certain cowboy dances. I've gone lining up for shows, I've been safely placed in rows, sure I know how it goes. Another day goes by, little time machine, I'm raking my brain over what it might mean just to claim the time and to turn away, to make today today. Who waits for you, lonely tired old toad? It's your life laid out before you like the broken white line down the center of the road. Line 'em up line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Yeah, big moon landing, people are standing up, smiles for the loved ones, they go walking on down the aisles. Each re-engages stepping into the sun, I watch them turn like pages one by one by one, Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. [Indecipherable French grunting]
