JACK'S MANNEQUIN lyrics - People And Things

Out Of It (Passenger Demo)

Original and similar lyrics
You meet me at the pier... so we can teach each other how to breathe It's been the strangest year; I almost drifted out to see I've lost my edge, and I'm barely twenty-three... Downtown the high robots... are fishin' for the rich men I say we take some shots and make a night of watching them "I would, but I'm not sure I should go out... it's just these days, I'm so afraid of crowds..." [Chorus:] We gotta get a little out of it To get out of it... sometimes Tonight I wanna get a little out of it And I'm hoping that you don't mind So we pull open the garage The clicker's fuckin' broken I say we drive 'til dawn And push the car into the ocean I watched the cops bust up our neighbor's place today Tell me where you're living, dear If it's so safe anyway [Chorus] We wander down the hill to the parking lot Where all the street lamps paint the pavement o-o-o-orange, yeah We take some pills I got from the pharmacy And laugh about a year that felt a little more like war We gotta get a little out of it sometimes Tonight, I wanna get a little out of it And I'm hoping that you don't... mind... We gotta get a little out of it to get out of it sometimes Tonight I wanna get a little out of it and I'm hoping that you don't mine.

Showstopper

AJ RAFAEL
You make my dreams come true And I love all the small things that you do, Like blink 182 You make my days go better and the way That the sun is shining through girl it's all because of you And I know it's tough right now but you'll get it together And just know that I am here through all kinds of weather I won't ever leave your side day or night or whenever But right now I just gotta say I just gotta say But you're a Showstopper you are so hot and I can't get you off my mind Showstopper you're a jaw dropper When I see you in the lights You make everything alright And I know that Id be fine if I had you You make me wanna dance Cause I'm happy but just know that I can't dance So I'm sorry in advance And You make the stars shine brighter and the way That the moonlight hits your eyes makes me wanna be your guy And I know it's tough right now now but we'll get it together And just know that I am here through all kinds of weather And I will ever leave your side day or night or whenever But at this moment I just wanna say, I just gotta say That you're a Showstopper you are so hot and I can't get you off my mind Showstopper you're a jaw dropper When I see you in the lights You make everything alright And I know that Id be fine if I had you And you make me feel like I'm flying And no one can stop me from feelin The way I do now there's no denying That you got me goin and now I'm falling Showstopper you are so hot and I can't get you off my mind Showstopper you're a jaw dropper When I see you in the lights You make everything alright And I know that Id be fine if I had you Showstopper you are so hot and I can't get you off my mind

Show Business

A TRIBE CALLED QUEST "Low End Theory"
Verse 1 [Q-Tip] Let me tell you 'bout the snakes, the fakes, the lies The highs at all of these industry shing-dings Where you see the pretty girls In the high animated world Checkin' for a rapper with all the dough If you take a shit they want to know And if you're gonna fall, they won't be around, y'all So you still wanna do the show business? And you think that you got what it takes? I mean you really gotta rap and be all that And prepare yourself for the breaks Check it out! Do you wanna be in the business? (The Business) The ups and downs with the hoes (The Business) Always gettin' fronted on at shows (The Business) People gotta stick their nose (In the Business) Verse 2 [Q-Tip] Yo, I gotta speak on the cesspool It's the rap industry and it ain't that cool Only if you're on stage or if you're speakin' to your people Ain't no-one your equal Especially on the industry side Don't let the games just glide Right through your fingers, you gotta know the deal So Lord Jamar speak, because you're real... [Lord Jamar] They're givin' you the business and puttin' on a show You're a million dollar man that ain't got no dough But you got a ho tickets backstage to a show Sedated and at that fact they elated Time pass and your ass say Where's my loot? The reply is a kick in the ass from a leg and a boot All you wanna do is taste the fruit But in the back they're makin' fruit juice You ask for slack and wanna get cut loose from the label Not able cos you signed at the table For a pretty cash advance, now they got a song and dance That you didn't recoup, more soup wit' ya meal? Cos this is the real when you get a record deal And I say... [Phife] Aw....shucks, look what the cat hauled in It's Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest, let me begin Like Chuck D, I got so much trouble on my mind 'bout these no-talent artists gettin' signed, they can't rhyme And if that ain't bad, you got bootleggers Goin' out like suckers, motherfuckers Feel it's time that I let loose the lion And if not that then I'll commence to head flyin' Seems in '91 everybody want a rhyme And then you go and sell my tape for only $5.99? Please nigga, I've worked too hard for this No more will I take the booty end of the stick Bogus brothers makin' albums when they know they can't hack it Cos they lyrics is played like 8-Ball jackets Now tell me I can't tear it up Go get yourself some toilet paper cos your lyrics is butt Do you wanna be in the business? (The Business) People can't walk a straight line in (The Business) Some of these brothers can't rhyme in (The Business) A-yo, I'm tryna get mine (The Business) Verse 3 [Sadat X] The party scene is cool, but then again it's all the same You see the same faces, but at different places When you're up and ridin' high everything is palsy-palsy Get a million pounds and all the skins give you hugs Well that's cool, I can dig it, it really ain't my bag Prefer to max on the side and let my pants sag Oh, he's a cutie , yeah, real cute But I wasn't that cute when I didn't have no loot Although I hit a pound of herbs I'm still nice with the verbs So fuck what you heard The born cipher, cipher master makes me think much faster But critics still continue to plaster My name and discredit my fame All that shit is game And I don't really give a damn Eat from the tree of life and throw away the verbal ham [Diamond D] Well, excuse me, I gotta add my two cents in Don't be alarmed, the rhyme was condensed in A matter of minutes so it must be told All that glitters' not gold Everybody wants a deal, help me make a demo See my name in bright lights, ride around in a limo My moms keeps beefin' ( Boy, get a job ) But I wanna make jams, damn, I know I'll slam Huh, well it's not that easy You gotta get a label that's willin' and able To market and promote, and you better hope (For what?) That the product is dope Take it from Diamond, it's like mountain climbin' When it comes to rhymin' you gotta put your time in Get a good lawyer so problems won't pile You don't wanna make a pitch that's wild.
