Wild Flowers In A Mason Jar

Original and similar lyrics
(Linde) January, back in '55, we rode a Greyhound bus through the Georgia midnight. Grandpa was sleeping and the winter sky was clear. We hit a bump and his head jerked back a little and he mumbled something, he woke up smiling, but his eyes were bright with tears. He said, 'I dreamed I was back on the farm, 20 years have passed, boy, the memory still warms me. Wildflowers in a mason jar' He told me those old stories 'bout that one-room cabin in Kentucky. The smell of the rain and the warm earth in his hands. He slowly turned and stared outside, his face was mirrored in the window, and his reflection flew across the moonlit land. And he dreamed he was back on the farm. Tilts his head and listens to the early sound of morning, wildflowers in a mason jar. An old man and an eight-year-old boy rolling down that midnight highway, Kentucky memories from a winter Georgia night. I started drifting off and Grandpa tucked his coat around me, I think I tried to smile as I slowly closed my eyes. And I dreamed I was with him on the farm. Grandpa, I can hear the evening wind out in the corn, wildflowers in a mason jar, wildflowers in a mason jar, wildflowers in a mason jar, and the bus rolled through the night.

Poker In The Sky

JOE BUDDEN "Some Love Lost"
Just trying to explain the unexplainable More than trying to attain the unattainable Trying to make it sustainable Collecting all the parts, see if they interchangeable Killing me slow, but I'm glad it's entertaining you Everyday it amaze me The same thinking that pay me the same thinking that plagues me How can I think I'm crazy? Sway me Cause to profit off of shit that aches me is actually pretty wavy I'm painting the perfect picture Only perfect cause the imperfections are highlighted To gross currency off of that kinda sickness Changes the meaning of mind my business Giving what was given to me So the soldiers come over unsober And call me Yoda instead of Joseph I be like "why they come to me for advice?" They should really come to me for a vice I got 'em all Got a counter full of liquor, pocket full of pills The illusion of control, I can tell you how it feels Accounts full of paper and the women I play with All got criminal bodies, innocent faces Come around and we have a ball, could have it all Well, I ran out of Adderall, but that's a matter of a call, check it Odds is they start telling me they hardships Regardless, they end up wanting hard dick, aww shit You would think they been ordained Got her legs in the air, she screaming the Lord's name I'm feeding her more game, more game, more game I started fucking her mind, that's when all them thoughts came She keep saying if I want her I should fight for her My plight for her says I don't know if I'm right for her Even so know there's a fire I ignite for her Staring at her ceiling, seeing me like I'm a nightcrawler It's like she love me, but she don't That's when she lose me, that's when she confuse me It's what I get appalled with, can't call it She think I should remove her hurt since I installed it But I wish she knew I was returned 2 birds Feel it hurt me more knowing I hurt you Even though it exists I don't ever bring it up We don't be doing nothing, but it's everything to us Presently she bring up the past and it's filthy You not talking to who I was or who I will be But that's my own assignment You want to take all the feelings and the time spent And give it realignment Check the catalog, lateral God I self-sabotage, I'd explain further, but I'd rather not Salute, on me, everybody have a shot I do it for the niggas they said wouldn't have a shot But some days are better than some days Still yet here I stand on numb legs Women don't give a fuck that I have these scars I'm fucking the same hoes that the athletes are What a rollercoaster, we argued and we sexed Face in her box, James Harden in her texts Nigga from the Clippers every morning text her "good morning" She be sleep, he just be talking to me, my nigga None of this is a pain to see I only care about her if she pertains to me Shit I'm tending to emergencies with urgency That urge in me is my daily fight in her purging me Fuck hoes, I ain't got time to be sprung now Grandpa's cancer just made it to his lungs now In 2012, docs gave him few months; wild He's alive somehow, outlived 2 sons, wow So no the observation Says he'll die quicker with chemo and radiation He ain't strong enough to even go through operation Know that death's coming, he just in the house waiting So you telling me there ain't a way to fix the shit? Or is grandpa too old for you to give a shit? Let's switch the shit, give you my predicament Wonder how you would feel if I was telling yours live with it And it's traveling to his heart soon Of course it all hit me like a harpoon I was in shock and then it was all clearer When he called me and asked me to be his pallbearer I was floored But then the next second was back To being self-centered, self-absorbed And it became about me, fought it off long enough I could help carry your weight, but I ain't strong enough But why do I have to be? This the shit I be naturally asking me, I'm such a catastrophe See me breaking down with my father in back of me So for me to attend, I'm trying to think of a strategy But I'm happy for my dad He was incarcerated, but his mama didn't make it So for him to get that chance again with you Means the world, he could be there til it end for you and me I bleed out through this pen for you Can't carry this around, gotta vent, it's due Cause now, grandpa'll be closer to his wife Have cards when I come, we playing poker in the sky

Animal In Man

DEAD PREZ "Lets Get Free"
*Two Guys Talking* (Guy 1) Help me! (Guy 2) You want me to help you? Man is evil, capable of nothing but destruction (Narrator) Once upon a time There was a very serious situation growing There was a farmer and a farmyard filled with animals And this is the story of their times Verse 1 Old man Sammy had a farm Walked the land with the wife Most of the time shit was calm His whole life was maintained off the everyday labor from the mules in the field to the cattle in the stable This is how we kept food on this table (maxing) You would have he was disabled by the way he be relaxing Acting like Mr. Magnificent But the animals were thinking something different The sentiment was tension in the barnyard Throughout the years they had been through mad drama with the farmer, word is bond And they all came to one conclusion They argued there was no way they'd ever be free If it was up to humans Therefore the only course left was revolution which was understandable And since the pigs promised to lead in the interest of all the animals They planned a full attack Under the leadership of Hannibal The fattest pig in the pack The next morning on the farm Everything was calm Just before dawn But before long The sun got so hot it made the farm seem electric Now check it This is when that shit got hectic Directed by Hannibal, the animals attacked Old Sam was in a state of shock And fell up on his back And dropped his rifle Reaching in vain Each and every creature from the field at his throat Screaming Kill, feel the pain. Chorus This is the animal in man This is the animal in you This is the animal in man Coming true (2X) Verse 2 After they ran the farmer off the farm The pigs went around and called a meeting in the barn Hannibal spoke for several hours But when talks about his plans for power That's when the conversation turned sour He issued an offical ordinance to set If not a pig from this day forth then you insubordinate That's when the horses went buckwild One of them shouted out You fraudulent pigs, we know your fucking style! Hannibal's face was flushed and pale All the animals eyes full of disgust and betrayal He felt the same way Sam felt They took his tongue out of his mouth And cut his body up for sale, for real You better listen while you can Its a very thin line between animal and man When Hannibal crossed the line they all took a stand What would have done? Shook his hand? This is the animal in man Chorus (4X) Narrator Remember...

Grandpa Was A Carpenter

JOHN PRINE "Sweet Revenge"
Grandpa wore his suit to dinner Nearly every day No particular reason He just dressed that way Brown necktie and a matching vest And both his wingtip shoes He built a closet on our back porch And put a penny in a burned out fuse. Chorus: Grandpa was a carpenter He built houses stores and banks Chain smoked Camel cigarettes And hammered nails in planks He was level on the level And shaved even every door And voted for Eisenhower 'Cause Lincoln won the war. Well, he used to sing me Blood on the Saddle And rock me on his knee And let me listen to radio Before we got T.V. Well, he'd drive to church on Sunday And take me with him too! Stained glass in every window Hearing aids in every pew. Repeat Chorus: Now my grandma was a teacher Went to school in Bowling Green Traded in a milking cow For a Singer sewing machine She called her husband Mister And walked real tall and pride And used to buy me comic books After grandpa died. Repeat Chorus:

Fireman

Jawbreaker
Dreamed I was a fireman I just smoked and watched you burn Dreamed I was an astronaut I shot you down like a juggernaut Dreamed we were still going out Had that one a few times now Woke up to find we were not It's good to be awake. Dreamed I was a tidal wave I ravaged your coast, There were no survivors. Dreamed I was your landlord I showed your place when you had lovers. If I was a vampire, I wouldn't suck your blood. Then I dreamed I was you Sweetest dream I have had. [CHORUS] : If you could hear the dreams I've had, my dear, They would give you nightmares for a week. But you're not here, and I can never sleep Come home so I can be a creep. Dreamed I was a dream I stole you away, away in your sleep. Saved you from a fire, a gun for hire, Introduced you to a vampire. A wave crashed on the beach We rolled around in its foamy grasp, Kissing in the chaos of a kelpy sea Seems I couldn't save you from me. [CHORUS] Maybe I'm obsessive to think like this Probably not impressing you with my cheap tricks Honey, it's depressing what depression does to some. I'll play the part for hours, But I know you'll never come. [CHORUS]

We In This Bitch

IGGY AZALEA "Reclassified"
[Verse 1:] Right, Iggy back no playtime I just gave y'all some break time to miss me So stressed on what's next My last little bit of success ain't even hit me So keep it light on the advice Look at us, we must be doing something right clearly In convo I don't talk to too many I just talk to the fans in the songs cause y'all feel me Now let's reflect on what we left on New Classic I overstepped what was expected, I blew past it So best bet is respect my perspective Or go get your sight checked for new glasses The fact is you combine the stats with The history I made, the message should be established I guess what I'm explaining in laymen's Is ain't nothin' about miss Azalea average [Hook x2:] Now we in this bitch Admit it get borin' with no me in this bitch Now we in this bitch What's a world with no I-G-G in this bitch? [Verse 2:] Unpolished product of my environment Tryna get the same type love and respect as peers I be rhymin' with But everything is so one-sided, divided and biased That I can't get a fair judge panel not in the slightest bit In light of this, I had to write a hit to get this type of chip Ridin' dick won’t get me nowhere and I ain’t that type of chick That's so unladylike 'specially knowin' they be like "Iggy this and Iggy that" long as you say it, say it right Right, they might be playin' but Iggy ain't 'Til Iggy faint, I just wanna fill this Iggy bank See I emerged from the smoke without a smudge on me So back up up off of me unless you got some love for me, right [Bridge:] Even with my back against the wall I still don't know fear and won't shed a tear Cause when I think back, I've seen it all And everything that ain't stopped me got me here so [Hook x2] [Verse 3:] Look in my eyes and see what I see You know that nothin' happenin' surprise me It's like I seen this before This is everything I was dreaming for Relax your mind let ya conscious free I got expensive taste and I ain't waiving the fee It's like I seen this before Life is now everything I dreamed and more And more, life is now everything I dreamed and more And more, life is now everything I dreamed and more And more, life is now everything I dreamed... [Bridge] [Hook x2]
