Readjustment Blues

Original and similar lyrics
(Danoff) Just out of the infantry this morning, I had to pay my dues across the sea. No one back in boot camp ever warned me what the readjustment blues would do to me. 'Welcome to Havannah', said the pilot. 'We must have made a wrong turn on the way. Let's buy some cigars and keep it quiet, if they don't know we're here we'll get away.' Just as I had realized he was joking, I saw we were in Washington D.C. 'Cause there was all the patriotic buildings, just like I had seen them on TV. It must have been a holiday, 'cause there was this parade. People carried signs, I couldn't read, that they had made 'Till I got closer and my heart fell to my socks, there was a battle raging and the air was filled with teargas and rocks. There was the flag I'd fought against so often, the one I fought for hanging upside down. The wind was blowing hard, the dirt was flying, it made the city sky look dark and brown. I saw a girl, she could have been my sister, except her hair was long and in her face. She explained this was a demonstration against the war and for the human race. Now, I've seen a lot of strange things in my travels. Cannibals, yes, and aliens galore. But I never thought I'd see so many people saying we don't want your war! The troops all had on uniforms just like the one I'd worn, but they were all domestic and my duty chose war. They carried guns just like the ones across the sea, except this time, I was the citizen, and they were pointing their guns at me. Yes, I was just a citizen, and I was walking down the street, And it was just that night, the readjustment blues got through to me.

Brief Description

ATMOSPHERE "Overcast!"
[Sample: Have you heard it? Sing along with it. If you didn't hear it you're gonna hear it right now. ] [Slug] Bam, the door way opened for me I saw ways and told the story Raw day dreams of holding glory Junior high, Hall way kings Lockin' taggin' MCs Beat boxin', breakin' Zulu Nation wannabees It didn't take long to see who would stay strong High school upon Some B-Boys put their gang bangs on But some kept on doing Step on to ruin Others that were pursuing the same shit we thought we ruled in But what a surprise The passion for being the best Puts a quest for allies to rest Dead In the Midwest where heads Is just a hand full In a land of gangstas Players, replacements, pricks, banjos We scramble To break MCs that may appreciate it Guided by their envy insecurity and their hatred Separated by the gimmie props technique And a desire to be the tops this week I gotta floss the speak Cause talk is cheap Even the broke kids can afford it That's why I stand close and if you're dope then I'm supportive But if not We'll keep the mic warm For the next one Respect the artform And make your wishes on the stars born Within the movement Fact checkin' tryin' to completely avoid all channels of backstepping From the lines of painted the concrete that reside on lakestreet To the way we close our eyes to sleep And drift through Deep Space 9 type shit To find this I've been around for as long as sound I've been to that not so fresh faze And that not so serious state but I've evolved Metamorphed manifestate I used to be young, dumb and full of vision Like it was religious rituals I made initial decisions I wanted to be a rapper world renowned From Minneap to the Bronx Capture girls and crowns Snap, crackle and stomp That's what I found The abyss that sits in-between the one that holds the mic and those that don't even listen Formed some crews Rocked talent shows at schools Saturdays on the 18 make my way down to the record pool I met a grip of people that was bullshit Was down with a lot of people that was bullshit But I bull shit from the asshole of an angel before I let him hassle and strangle The love triangle between me the mic and the turntable Went to studios We want to make demos We want to do shows and rock our own instrumentals Do our own production Fuckin' around with this kid Kazir Nitwit engineer Barely knew his own equipment, Atmosphere The prefix was urban Wrecked shows Made friends made foes Overall we made flows And right now as I sit here writing this I'm buggin' off of the people in my life that made me like this Within the movement Fact checkin' Tryin' to completely avoid all channels of backsteppin' From the lines of painted concrete that reside on Franklin Ave To the dead bird on the elevator To that short in your cross fader I never got lost later For efforts to pester Just throw your hands up in the air like a leper I've been to that not so fresh faze And to that not quite so serious state Metamorph manifestate Well sometimes it rings and I don't answer it That's it no asterisks No thirst to find the circumstances It was planted in me deep It was nurtured and it grew Gave it sleep and nutrition It was efficient let it through There are a few that have developed when I let them in my spectrum For the rest of em I give them just enough to cause infection Not trippin' on attention But if you ofer it it's welcome Open arms patient charms I know the words and I can spell them Seldom is it When one inquisits Do they leave with this interest In fact most begin crave the visits Bringin' me to the table That's it no more no less The love the life the stress Slug, the mic, the mess Tested Yes, I've been tested and I've tested some I'm not sayin' I'm the best Believe I'm not Like the rest of em Just sayin' I'm better than you That's my mind state My rhymes take me into When I check one two I guess some do get pissed But intentions were to inspire Built the empire before I get tired The ones that tear me down don't know it But they're the same ones that build me Now quiet lean your head say, Yes you can feel me. [Sample: Asking himself, even before the curtain goes up, what am I? I am now 80 years old, and more, and I am determined to find precisely what I am, what I amount to. They tell me I am everything, they flatter me everyday, of my life. I am now going to subject myself to a rigorous test in order to find out really what I am. I don't care about? I don't about rule, anymore. It is of no importance to me, as such, but I must find out what I am before I die. ]

[Verse 3:] Look at me I'm fresh to death I like your neck decapitated And your girl fascinated, ugh and I'm glad you hate it Aggravated, aggravated, aggravated Man I'm mad I made it, now they comparing me to these lames Man these drama sell art don't compare me these stains Man I'm just a consciousness don't compare me with brains I'm a G and that G only gon stand for Genius People are scared when they round you, simple, they never seen this And I'm out Don't be scared to call me the cleanest cause I'm back And I'm taking the spot for freshest and meanest sup with that? Man you jokers didn't believe us till I rapped And I started to speak like Jesus's fetus Lemme introduce you to rap You jokers are bleeding on my Adidas Running faster than cheetahs, I'm sorry you couldn't beat us New school have patience, don't worry we'll be your leaders That's that, lemme introduce you to rap, holy crap R-A-P, rhythm and poetry hit these jokers with the symbol so they gon know it's me It's only G [Song 2] [Verse 1:] Slum slum, don't give the public any food little crumb crumb Deep under the ground military say I'm dumb dumb But you probably dumber, machines guns in backs of the hummers Bullet proof well that should cover the summer (nevermind) It's the truth so bro I'm skipping the stutters I'm sick with my brothers That flouride get you like them fresh clothes fit you Words never see the lights until them rappers spit you and I'm out Just like your night light is Surfing tidal waves up in my dreams like I was Tidus Talking bout the clothes or the flows they the tightest Spirit of a master, head of a ibis Mathematics is precise it's like I went to school in Greece MSFTS Republic, mystery is on the fleece We just the reckless kids who like to skate up in the streets Till our parents call and say that they've been talking to police Now we out, like I'm the priest The precinct is watching me sink like I'm a thief Jumping off a tree and use a leaf as a parachute I freakin' drown these jokers if they ever get embarrassed You stab 'em with the sabertooth I'm breathing like I'm Vader's suit Jaden goes say hey to Zeus it don't fit me like Ace's shoes But I'm acing Dr. Seuss lyrics when the masons lose My mom says that I should take my shoes But I need excuses for the week, so I escape my school You freakin' kids mistaking fake for cool At night I'm watching but end of day I take my steak to school You think I'm weird but fake you skating too The rumors says I'm chilling with your girl don't make me make it true Take your fate and make it blue Take a drake and fly it to the place where they ain't chasing you Paparazzi on me rocking Roxy homie got a box of socks And don't be mad because I'm boxing OGs Charge me like a mophie, you jokers lowkey And bring the bass in, measure everything like I'm a mason The paper chasing is over, this kids amazing I'm sorry this kids amazing We tattle tell with Mason We got a church but we treat it like it's a base and water to put your face in Shoes to do the lacing, corruption when you walk Corrupt you when you talk, what you up to in the dark? It's like, R2-D2 see thru Machu Picchu You can't know this, I should eat you I'm your shifu cut the crap I don't like seafood We could hit the Staples Center bro I don't like people No I don't like people, I'm too selfish and nervous But people say Jay you're the coolest you can't tell on the surface But they listen to the music you can't tell that it's worthless You can't tell that I'm nervous well here's a lift of the curtains It go uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-uh-oh [Song 3] [Verse 1:] You should try to fit your feet in these 9 and a half shoes At 7 learned a lesson, it's only that cash rules Maybe it'd be different if we ain't have bad schools We'd have less people with snapbacks and tattoos The furthest from bad dudes, they've just been corrupted People say I sound like Q-Tip, keep you on the up tip Saying "Jaden, why you tripping, why you change the subject?" But my randomness is what you jokers fall in love with But check it The school system is seriously just a system And anyone under 18 just falls in line as a victim Like take 'em, look at our youthful and see the pain that's inflicted It's like they rented the building, I'm trying to get them evicted They're trying to get us addicted, it's wicked like we gon' stick with this The internet exists you idiot, man, we figured this Human consciousness shifting plates of the continents I never thought that I'd have an army as strong as this and rah [Verse 2:] Futuristic 'ish, revolutionary Man, the truth is buried, don't get it, the truth is scary Screw these corporations, I'm making the core proration With no fluoride in the water to support the nation Man, I'm sick of this So I divorce the nation Then drop the wickedest album hear it across the nation Man, I promise I'd never cross the nation But the boy's a man, I guess I lost my patience [Break:] This is my Michelangelo This is that fly-fly This is for Hov and Jay Brown But I'm out for now, homie, ta-ta [x2] [Verse 3:] Hopefully all you jokers can be as dope as me Once you grow up and go and live your life how it's supposed to be I'm not gon' drop it, I'm in a rocket, I'm in the cockpit Holden brought his own Glock and cocked it, it's in his pocket Man, he shot it while losing pressure, screw these investors I can do it better, screw you and your Louie sweater In 20 years, I'll be a veteran, you better let him in Because I'm ballin' like a letterman- Jacket, let it settle in (Jaden, you are sick!) Screw your medicine Poison me and Imma end up dead again I'm talking to the kids that are enlightened, the Indigo I'm talking about the kid sighing staring out of the window instead of Nintendo You are not alone Man, I'm here for you If I found out that you passed I would probably shed a tear for you MSFTS, we cheer for you, your true extended crew I'd pay for all our sins and I'd even take a speel for you I'm done
