A Prayer For Micheal Vick & T.I.

JAY ELECTRONICA
I never got shook up by talks of Illuminati I'm from where niggas talk that talk Then walk around the streets all day Carrying heat like the human body Stress – we mastered that Death – we laugh at that You niggas sweeter than the cog-ni-ac I never sleep and when my eyes is closed I'm in a deep battle for sheep. I'm an insomniac But when it comes to the rhymes, a hypochondriac The flow so sickly, splash a hot round on me Peel off quickly, luckily Not one of you niggas could fuck with me I hit you with a plus degree Mind detect mind, plus mind detect matter With that I say peace to the G.O.'s And all my niggas locked away in cages, giving shit to the C.O.'s Doing long stretches on the track Cause they fell into the trap of the Neo's The Farrakhan of rap, giving dap to the people Busting shots at the eagle With the arrows in it's talon, sneaking shots when you peep through your peephole Spit the abracadabra, manipulate matter with a black magic created to eradicate evil So if they call me a rapper, okay yeah I can dig it But if they bring me before the congress, then I can kick it I send the devil to hell every time that I get wicked Ayah to ayah sura by sura yeah, yeah, I get lifted [Sample:] "People do say I'm cocky, some say I need a good whoopin', some say... I talk too much, but anything that I say I'm willing to back up... I have fulfilled all of my prophecies, I'm up to date on all of my predictions, my train is running on schedule." One for money, two for the pussy and fame Three hundred'll go to the court to change my name Like Cassius, the past just show me lessons Stay on my grind and pray that time will show me blessings Was my own model, I'm from the Magnolia Projects Where dice rollers and heroin addicts is role models So I had no choice but to kick it to full throttle My nigga's in Philly'll probably tell you – the boy's thorough Now, either you with me or you with me Cause even if you against me, running with my enemies They ain't nothing but mini-me's That I created long, long ago And they only want to cut off My lineage like the Kennedy's That being the case You should be aware I blast many a face And left niggas displaced like Katrina did And gave them very little with nothing like FEMA did And I ain't never seen a bid Well, there was one time when me and Ali tussled with one-time For claiming our sovereignty as a nation and bloodline You niggas should give a standing ovation To the MC who stands in the face of Satan Hitting them with Creation

Talk About The Good Times

ELVIS PRESLEY "Rhythm Country"
(Words music by Jerry Reed Hubbard) Well I remember when I was as children The time the people used to treat the neighbor like a fellow man And all their singin' and big prayer meetin's When a man was proud to walk up and shake his neighbors hand Oh you talk about the good times, Talk about the good times Oh if you ever needed help a friend was there Some good neighbor Help lift your burden Mmm, and the simple joys of life a friend would share Times are harder and the people are changin' Now most folks couldn't tell you who their neighbors are All their guns are loaded, the front doors are bolted Ain't this ol' world takin' hate and fear just a little too far Oh you talk about the good times, Talk about the good times I wish I could go back to the days I'm speakin of When a friend would meet you And a smile would greet you What this ol' world needs now is a little old fashioned love My granddaddy God rest his soul now Well we had a big long talk together the day he died Said son this world is full of hate and venom An' I can't wait to leave this ol' place and rest on the other side Oh you talk about the good times, talk about the good times Talk about the good times I'm gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol' days We'll have a big hand shakin' An' sit and talk together Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away Oh you talk about the good times, talk about the good times Talk about the good times I'm gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol' days We'll have a big hand shakin' An' sit and talk together Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away Oh you talk about the good times, talk about the good times Talk about the good times I'm gonna see all the friends I knew in the good ol' days We'll have a big hand shakin' An' sit and talk together Sit down by the river Jordan and sing our blues away

Silence (Pretending's So Comfortable)

AS IT IS "Never Happy, Ever After"
Four walls and a door; we used to call home The rest of our lives, but not enough time, 'til we're both alone I try to steady my hands You hurt to know why I open my mouth and just trip over sounds But my eyes speak goodbye The silence tells us all we need to know I breathe nervous and slow (Well you're desperate for air) My eyes sink to the floor (Yours compelled still to stare) In my tears, you know I meant all I said (As every elegant word I said sinks in again) The silence tells us all we need to know (Need to know) Pretending's so comfortable But I have to, go for the last time (Go for the last time) [x2] You challenge all that I speak (So this won't mean the end) I rephrase and repeat (Leaving nothing unsaid) Your hysterics hide the last words you'd hear (As I stand to abandon your, lonely four walls full of fear) The silence tells us all we need to know (Need to know) Pretending's so comfortable But I have to, go for the last time We won't, talk at all We'll just wonder We won't, talk at all We'll just wonder We won't, talk at all We'll just wonder We won't talk at all We won't talk at all! We won't, talk at all We'll just wonder what, we still swallow glass for each other We won't, talk at all We'll just wonder what, we still swallow glass each other The silence tells us all we need to know (Need to know) Pretending's so comfortable But I have to, go for the last time The silence tells us all we need to know (Need to know) Pretending's so comfortable But I had to go

We Don't Talk

GABRIELLE "Find Your Way"
We don't talk Like we used to do before Many things have changed We're both not the same, no Empty nights You're never by my side I waited so long How can I carry on I misunderstood Don't know how I could You were giving signs I guess I didn't read them right Said you needed change Had to go away Guess I should have known That I'd be all alone 'Cos we don't talk like we used to baby 'Cos we don't talk like we used to baby No conversation, no communication Can't remember the time When your time was mine Seems so long ago That we used to hold Time has come to pass You see I've woken at last I misunderstood Don't see how I could You were giving signs I guess I didn't read them right Said you needed change Had to go away Guess I should have known That I'd be all alone Should have seen That things weren't right We could never meet See eye to eye We're not talking anymore So there'll never be a chance For us to fight anymore 'Cos we don't talk like we used to baby 'Cos we don't talk like we used to baby Should have seen That things weren't right We should never meet See eye to eye We're not talking anymore So there'll never be a chance For us to fight anymore
