Holiday From Real

Original and similar lyrics
She thinks I'm much too thin She asks me if I'm sick What's a girl to do With friends like this She lets me drive her car So I can score an eighth From the lesbians Out west in Venice Oh, California in the Summer Ah, and my hair is growing long Fuck yeah, we can live like this But if you left it up to me Everyday would be A holiday from real We'd waste our weeks Beneath the sun We'd fry our brains And say it's so much fun out here But when it's all over I'll come back for another year I'll look for work today I'm spilling out the door Put my glasses on So no one sees me I never thought that I'd be living on your floor But the rents are high And LA's easy Oh, it's a picture of perfection Ah, and the postcards gonna read "Fuck yeah we can live like this... We can live like this" But if you left it up to me Everyday would be A holiday from real We'd waste our weeks Beneath the sun We'd fry our brains And write it's so much fun out here Hey Madeline (hey Madeline) You sure look fine (you sure look fine) You wore my favorite sweater Being poor was never better A safety buzz (A safety buzz) Some cheap red wine (Some cheap red wine) Oh, the trouble we can get in So let's screw this one up right But if you left it up to me Everyday would be A holiday from real We'd waste our weeks Beneath the sun We'd lie and tell our friends It's so much fun out here But when it's all over I'll come back for another year When it's all over I'll come back for another When it's all over I'll come back for another year

Amateurs get hung with they own gold chains - Rebel INS There it is!! I declare that only live niggaz rap this year - Prodigy [Pos/Plug Won] The average MC sells terror We nail terror up against the wall for target practice Not one of your top five MC's but I see clearly with ease you lack this Coast to coast, we pop up on your scene like toast playin host to your regiment who rally to boast, but now boast no more They got floored by the sight of my ledger print I came specifically, to fracture yo' ability to grandstand anywhere next to me This is the year, when the true better man keeps the cheddar and writes to his destiny (word!) Timeless episodes of talent got me nominated by the ones who hated me on spittin tighter Salute these Supa Emcees for bein clever; and never use the weed as a ghost writer [scratching] I declare that only live niggaz rap this year - Prodigy Jam's off the meter yo, this {shit} is hot - P. Smith Run a rapper through a maze like a experiment - Malik B Yeah, word up! I declare that only live niggaz rap this year - Prodigy [Pos/Plug Won] Contrary to popular truth, these youth are runnin scared so in one stare they gettin strapped Cash rules NUTTIN from below the belt The dick choose to melt asses where them dollars at? (Where them dollars at?) Musta been bitten by a rabbit Actin silly like that; your pop culture need a diaper change I'm snatchin the mic, like I'm lootin with a whole lot of shootin while you're keepin out of sniper range Your aim's to please, my aim's to freeze you dead center in your tracks with your hands high Ain't no tricks, we set it to fire like Hendrix All the hard rocks at liquor spots All over the scene, makin it messy so we make a clean getaway to a better day Can't say the same, for them cats who left the game cause they couldn't claim the better pay This ain't no masquerade so the mass parade of people need to stop frontin There's truly a few makin them hits while us, we got our mitts closed cause you on the field buntin Make it to third bass, but never reach home The word is, your whereabouts is unknown While we're that point of view, that you never really knew with the stitch to keep the cut sewn (De La!) [scratching] I declare that only live niggaz rap this year - Prodigy Jam's off the meter yo, this {shit} is hot - P. Smith .. ROCK A BYE BABY!! ON THE TREE TOP!! WHEN THE WIND BLOWS!! THE CRADLE WILL ROCK!! ROCK!! RO..

Chinese New Year

JIN "XIV:LIX"
My peoples keep their head up In the truest display Do what they gotta do Just to get through the day Back in Hong Kong Where they grew up and stayed Until they immigrated to the US of A Chasin’ the American Dream A ruff ryde for my pops Guess what He still shut em down Open up shop In the back of the kitchen Makin’ wontons Late nights out with my moms Playin’ mahjong See I was a young’n But the culture was inside of me Playin’ cards Big 2 Never want the diamond three Every Sunday It was part of the tradition While y’all was at church Dimsum was our religion I’m on a quest for love That’s just part of my pursuits No matter where I go I’m always stickin’ to my roots Show you my world That’s all I’m tryin’ to do here Cause for me Everyday is Chinese New Year Gung hay fat choy New day new hope But I ain’t new here Lai see dao loi Everyday is Chinese New Year Gung hay fat choy New day new hope But we ain’t new here Lai see dao loi Everyday everyday While we on the topic I got something to reveal Can I be real though I mean really real Cause at one point Yo I was losin’ sleep Thinkin’ bout the first song That I ever released Lookin’ back it was a Lesson in my eyes And if you never heard of it Hey that’s just A blessin’ in disguise Learn Chinese dropped Things never been the same Credibility gone Charge it to the game Truly though seemed like a Scene straight outta movie I was in the studio With 1/3 of The Fugees It’d be a understatement To say I was excited So when Clef said that’s it I ain’t hesitate to write it I was barely 21 But that’s not an excuse I got on my own two feet And walked into that booth To make y’all proud That’s all I’m tryin’ to do here Cause for me Everyday is Chinese New Year Gung hay fat choy New day new hope But I ain’t new here Lai see dao loi Everyday is Chinese New Year Gung hay fat choy New day new hope But we ain’t new here Lai see dao loi Everyday everyday Roll out the red carpet Guess we’ve finally arrived 0% luck 100% drive For your safety I went through the crash test Life is a road trip Can’t rely on MapQuest This is for my sisters And my brothers strugglin’ Here’s hopin’ that You can find comfort in your skin Not better not worse We just equally blessed They say we fresh off the boat Yeah the key word is fresh Walk a mile in my shoes Feel the pressure produced When you’re mentioned In the same sentence as Bruce Leeway none given Hard to fill a tall order Almost drowned in the hype Now I’m just tryin’ to be water Chinese or not This is for whoever will listen Listen we are more similar Than different Unite us all That’s what I’m tryin’ to do here Cause for us Everyday is Chinese New Year Gung hay fat choy New day new hope But I ain’t new here Lai see dao loi Everyday is Chinese New Year Gung hay fat choy New day new hope But we ain’t new here Lai see dao loi Everyday everyday

Revenge

PAPA ROACH "Infest"
Remember the girl Abused with forks ,knoves and razorblades She finally left him, she had enogh of her man's rage Band-aids cover her scars, she left him bloodied Beat his ass with a bat, face sunk like Silly Putty Y'all can sit back so I can study Destruction of the family design And how the morals of society decline Essentially is beats to rhymes like grapes to wine It's alright we're in love Can't live with or without See, see she can't live with hime and can't live without him Stress got her down, she needs to deal with her problems While the drama gets deeper, I put on the reefer She took the last step and sent his ass to the reaper Chaos is what she saw in the mirror Scared of herself and the power that was in her It took over and weighed heavily on her shoulders Militant insanity is now what controlled her Kill it, before it reaches you Missiles won't it's approaching the mainland Waht if it reaches the metropolitan areas, cosmopolitan areas Secure the lines, prepare for departure, calm, calm, calm It is big business and seems to be advanicng underground Because my style is underground I'm green with my red eyes mad tint Flee, flee, flee, rapido rapido She feed plentiful, electrifying the nation Don't you see that we are in danger How will we stop it She is attacking

Gabrielle

Beth Hirsch "Early Days"
Windy autumn Evening by the river Stands a man A man and Gabrielle Real looker Her back began to shiver Reminders of the months Under his spell He spoke in measure She recognized his rhythm Been a year A year without a sound She saw it comin In gestures he delivered Her eyes just kept The ground.... Cause Gabrielle Has learned to tell The gap from False to real And needs a man Who's sane at hand In tenderness Revealed (He goes) I acted badly Can you understand me? The prace I'm making Cause I'm a changed man (I was) such a fool In how I used to trat you Such a fool To beat you out of life Gone the days I leave you with no traces Gone the day You hate to see my face I know it's late I sweat and hesitate Wouldn't it Be great? Cause Gabrielle I mean you well And we have healed In time For all the girls In all the world It's you I seek To find, Gabrielle“ She stood dazed Nude in amazent She heard his words A hundred times again A fantasy has haunted her For ages That fantasy had now become Her friend She came upon An earring in the street Tearful pearl With silver to the sides She finally won Her walk became a run She felt as she Could fly Cause Gabrielle Has learned to tell The gap from False to real In her's the fan Who'll meet the man Cause love is Strength revealed Gabrielle....
