The Knowledge

Original and similar lyrics
Insight to what's going on Information keeps us strong What you don't know can hurt you bad Take it from me you'll be walkin around sad Cryin for a better day Until you educate for a better way So if you wanna be in control Ya gotta get yourself in the know Get the knowledge That you really want The knowledge Do you really want It's the knowledge What you really want The knowledge That you really want Spreading vise don't believe the hype You don't find the knowledge in a pipe Too many lives go up in smoke It's nice to laugh but don't be the joke To get over get better Try to be the possessor Of the one thing we all need in life To succeed take my advice Get the knowledge That you really want The knowledge Do you really want It's the knowledge What you really want The knowledge That you really want Prejudice No! Ignorance No! Bigotry No! Illiteracy No! Listen it's up to everyone If we're gonna change the way the world is run The way to start is to rid the children of Prejudice & ignorance We've gotta teach our kids to read and write That's the only way to win this fight for life Education is the goal so If you wanna be in the know Get the knowledge It's the one thing we all need in life

Love Yourz

J. COLE "2014 Forest Hills Drive"
Love yours Love yours [Hook:] No such thing as a life that's better than yours No such thing as a life that's better than yours No such thing as a life that's better than yours No such thing, no such thing Heart beatin' fast, let a nigga know that he alive Fake niggas mad, snakes Snakes in the grass let a nigga know that he arrive Don't be sleepin' on your level cause its beauty in the struggle nigga Goes for all y'all It's beauty in the struggle nigga (Let me explain) It's beauty in the struggle , ugliness in the success Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress I grew up in the city and though some times we had less Compared to some of my niggas down the block man we were blessed And life can't be no fairytale, no once upon a time But I be God damned if a nigga don't be tryin' So tell me mama please why you be drinking all the time? Does all the pain he brought you still linger in your mind? Cause pain still lingers on mine On the road to riches listen this is what you'll find The good news is nigga you came a long way The bad news is nigga you went the wrong way Think being broke was better [Hook] For what's money without happiness? Or hard times without the people you love Though I'm not sure what's 'bout to happen next I asked for strength from the Lord up above Cause I've been strong so far But I can feel my grip loosening Quick, do something before you lose it for good Get it back and use it for good And touch the people how you did like before I'm tired of living with demons cause they always inviting more Think being broke was better Now I don't mean that phrase with no disrespect To all my niggas out there living in debt Cashing minimal checks Turn on the TV see a nigga Rolex And fantasize about a life with no stress I mean this shit sincerely And that's a nigga who was once in your shoes Living with nothin' to lose I hope one day you hear me Always gon' be a bigger house somewhere, but nigga feel me Long as the people in that motherfucker love you dearly Always gon' be a whip that's better than the the one you got Always gon' be some clothes that's fresher than the ones you rock Always gon' be a bitch that's badder out there on the tours But you ain't never gon' be happy till you love yours [Hook] Heart beatin' fast, let a nigga know that he alive Fake niggas mad, snakes Snakes in the grass let a nigga know that he arrive

Step

SALT 'N' PEPA "Very Necessary"
I'm your honey-dipper so you say, you know Then you react and attack every flirt and ho But oh, no - you gots to go now, bro To and fro, unh-unh, no more So just walk out the door and be out like Margetta I've been through this before, but now I think I better Kick ya to the curb cuz this hurts, word You dis and wanna kiss Now that's absurd Yo, Spinderella ain't the kind type to be pulled down, ya know Before I go out I go blow-for-blow So tell those hos that sittin' there waitin' by the phone That they can have you cuz you's gone [CHORUS] All you gotta do is just step-step Me and you, we're through so just step-step All you gotta do is just step-step I hate to be ya I'm not the one to be gone You better go out and get someone else, hon Who can eat your lies when you feed it to her And take that little thumb when you give me to her Cuz you was packin' now you're lackin' You used to be stackin' when you was the mackin' But that's alright, it's a small thing, a small thing A two-minute brother, girls, I stress a small thing Yo, back to the track in the matter I don't need to see you think you're all of thatta Regardless of you my purse and pockets will be fatter I leaved ya flat, I leave ya flat, I left ya flatter [CHORUS] I wouldn't take ya back if ya paid me It was so sweet, oh no, I can't believe ya played me I'll admit you pulled it off kinda well But guess what I did it, too, so what the hell You reap what you sow, you know, you know how that go I know you're kinda shocked, but it was you who showed me so Swallow your pride, take it in, be a man I understood, now you understand That the minute you started showing me neglect Is the same minute I started feeling the effect Why I held it in I didn't wanna accept That it could be over just for cheap sex Experience is what we need to learn from I know we all made mistakes, but you're a big one So to the lucky man who's up next Either treat me right or just step (step-step) [CHORUS]

A Better Life

JOURNEY "Generations"
Morning sunlight on her face As he wakes her with a kiss She's been everything he wanted They were married as high school sweethearts Never dreamed it'd be like this Finding nothing for them comes easy Trying hard just to make a living Seems life won't give them a break Well as long as they've got each other Ooh, they'll find a way There's a better life Waiting out there somewhere They gotta learn to fly Need to spread their wings to soar There's a better life They'll find it together (keep holding on) She shows him rainbows every time he sees her smile They've been more than lovers There's no mountain they can't climb Can't stop dreaming dreams together Gotta rise above the crossroads Beyond the streets they were born To a place where prayers are answered And battles are won There's a better life Waiting out there somewhere They gotta learn to fly Need to spread their wings to soar There's a better life They'll find it together They keep holding on It only makes them strong They wanna learn to fly Gotta arise above the crossroads Beyond the streets they were born To a place where prayers are answered And battles are won There's a better life Waiting out there somewhere They gotta learn to fly Need to spread their wings to soar There's a better life They'll find it together (keep holding on) She shows him rainbows every time he sees her smile There's a better life (Waiting somewhere) They gotta learn to fly

I95

Francis Dunnery
I just bought a ticket for the journey of my life I gotta do this thing so I can feel all right Oh not me again, not me again Someone points a gun up to my head but I'm alone I want to run away but I can't let it go Oh not me again, not me again Drove down the I'95 with a cigarette in my hand 2000 reasons that I don't understand The Philly sun is shining in my eyes I start believing when I hear that voice inside Hey there man, do you wanna be happy, do you wanna be free? Blessed be the angry for angry they will be I gotta change this thing that screams inside of me Oh not me again, not me again Drove down the I'95 with smile across my face I see the flowers bloom I see the human race I got my power back from talking to my friend 60 miles of reason and I hear that voice again Hey there man, do you wanna be happy, do you wanna be free? Drove down the I'95 with the whole world in my hand Got all the things I need to finally understand Still on a journey that I started long ago The car is round the corner but the wheels have just come home. Whats the point of hanging on to an image of yourself? I question my redemption and I knew it had to go because the story about the struggle in life is completly over.

This Is The Life

Deacon Blue and Ricky Ross "This Is The Life"
You're unchanging I'm unchangeable That's a difference We have to recognise Some folks never row Their ways seem like paradise But inside we all know That this is the life You're the greatest Thing I've ever seen You make my eyes bleed And others turn to green Make the road open The future all gold Make my world spin When I open the door This is the life You'd better get used to You know you don't choose it, but This is the life This is the life Anything goes Oh if anything goes You can wave it away This thing won't come back again And take me round And let me see What was I thinking about Cause now is the time For you to see me We can walk away, darling Or we can say This s the life The best thing yet You'd better not change Cause this is the life This is the life Anything goes Oh if everything goes You can wave it away
