Locked Doors (Transit Demo)

Original and similar lyrics
Okay, take a look, look, look at you Gotta match the face with the feeling Check the flash, record, start the healing Right now... right now... Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, start again It's hard admitting you're not fitting with your old friends The clock is ticking, and the clicking is the only thing in your head In your head Pieces of your love life Came crashing down And breaking up And locked doors aren't that hard to bust through Did you stay true to what's been true to you? When all of the wreckage settles Will all of your precious metals Sleep with you like the devil who seduced you? You'd better get used to waking up alone Okay, take a look, look, look at this It's a wreck, a wreck is what you needed Check the stats; you're better when you're bleeding I'll wash my hands, these bloody prints So stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, start again It's hard admitting you're not fitting with your old friends It's so disarming watching all the walls come closing in In on you, you've got no clue; one, two... Pieces of your love life Came crashing down And breaking up And locked doors aren't that hard to bust through Did you stay true to what's been true to you? When all of the wreckage settles Will all of your precious metals Sleep with you like the devil who seduced you? You'd better get used to waking up alone Oh, whoa, my head is screaming at me It's screaming at me, 'cause I Put my money where your mouth was, mouth was Tastes good, does it? Can't sleep because it always was the... Pieces of your love life Came crashing down You're breaking up These locked doors aren't that hard to bust through Did you stay true to what's been true to you? When all of the wreckage settles Will all of your precious metals Sleep with you like the devil who seduced you? Well, you better get used to waking up alone You better get used to waking up alone...

In My Sleep

JOE BUDDEN "Padded Room"
[Verse 1 - Joe Budden] Baby girl told me in my sleep I was talkin So it's only natural I asked her what I said? (said) She said she woke up when she heard But she was so damn tired she couldn't make out a word" (out a word) She said she was tryin to see if eventually I would scream the name of a bird (bird) I told her that's absurd ('surd), and then gave her the face like "word?" (word) And then she replied yeah, said it was quite weird, said she was type scared I said "that's a side effect that you get when you trade bad dreams for some great nightmares" ('mares) When I close my eyes (eyes), I escaped the Poltergeist my escape from reality, just what I needed Brings me to a place where shorty never cheated (hey!) And even if she tried and succeeded In this other world I wouldn't even get heated Fuck (fuck) the details, I don't care about why I'm chillin with my grandmother, she ain't die (she ain't die) I was browsing online and seen Mike on a banner That said "you can be like me and beat cancer" Anything I touched, I'd feel (feel) No inspection but it seemed so real (real) Was leavin out the casino with a nympho Yes, Ray it can be so simple (oh) Here's how I arrive a problem with my kin folk Learn how to build me a house with no win-dows And that's when I think I saw a ribbon in the sky but it wasn't from an in-tro 'Cause where I'm at is no rumors or gossip but still got love for Ms. In-fo She said in my sleep I'd be laughin, but shit be funny to me (oh) Look, my ice cream was two hundred degrees if it dripped, I'd get a hole in my dungarees See, my anonymity is my protection (what else?) and me and hip-hop have no connection (what else?) Which got me to reflectin, is that why the mirror won't show my reflection? When I close my eyes, there's no dollars so we can scratch that one as an excuse (or) Or why folks do the things they do (or) or why people act so brand new (let's go) I had wings on flyin out a prison with a ratchet was only there 'cause someone snitched Look (look here), no one's poor but no one's rich just my way of creepin if life's a bitch Took a walk on the ceiling just to get my mind right That was yesterday (so), so in hindsight Since I was able to haul off I took it as God tellin me I'll never fall off (off) Got rid of name brands in the jewelry (why?) most people just use it as medicine Like it take 'em somewhere they ain't never been (but) but here you better off not better than (oh!) Stuck in the room with a elephant Opened the closet and dapped up my skeleton Had a convo with a man with no ears And all of a sudden everything became so clear (clear) Have no fear, I just bought a first class trip to nowhere - everybody goes there But they don't stay the whole year, me? I got three hundred and sixty-five shows there My girl said in my sleep, I'd be walkin (walkin), so I ask baby, where I go? Uh, she said I be walkin slow but she don't ever want to get out of bed, so she don't know I went to see a man walkin on water (and) Asked if he'd ever get things back in order (and) I've been there two years, over a quarter But everytime I open my eyes, it's like torture (torture) He said "please, I gave you a whole 'nother world for you to go do with as you please Just so you appeased, mixed with a couple of signs about real life while you make believe" So I (so I), teleported out of there with a grin Met a bum with a mansion, invited me in Then (then), we politiced, about politics Said somethin about Def Jam, I ain't acknowledge it I went to see a virgin with AIDS, yeah I thought about smashin that (why?) yeah her ass was fat So appealin, tattoo on her inner thigh said "she doin better than she was feelin" (feelin) I think I seen shorty before (like), maybe in a club or somethin Or, maybe in VIP, but wasn't nobody there but me And the club was all red (red) Then she started playin with my head (my head) And then I came Then I asked shorty, "what's her name?" And it was weird 'cause she fucked around, disappeared (uh, 'peared) like what a cruel joke (look) Cig lit but from it was no smoke Flicked in the ash tray and seen Stack's face Flash through a school hallway on a half day Was gettin chased, couldn't tell by who (or) Then a hallway turned into a cliff (what else?) Screamin piff before I was dead Some coward chopped my ass up out that bed Then baby girl told me in my sleep, I was screamin (screamin) so I said that's a lie (that's a lie) She put her right hand in the sky and said "you was, but I don't know why, got to go, goodbye" (goodbye, goodbye ...)
