Get Back In Line

Original and similar lyrics
Facing the world ain't easy when there isn't anything going Standing at the corner waiting watching time go by Will I go to work today or shall I bide my time 'Cos when I see that union man walking down the street He's the man who decides if I live or I die, if I starve, or I eat Then he walks up to me and the sun begins to shine Then he walks right past and I know that I've got to get back in the line Now I think of what my mamma told me She always said that it would never ever work out But all I want to do is make some money And bring you home some wine For I don't ever want you to see me Standing in that line 'Cause that union man's got such a hold over me He's the man who decides if I live or I die, if I starve, or I eat Then he walks up to me and the sun begins to shine Then he walks right past and I know that I've got to get back in the line

Call Of Duty

JAY ELECTRONICA
[Winston Churchill:] Centuries ago words were written to be a call and a spur to the faithful servants of Truth and Justice: Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valor, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be. [Jay Electronica:] You know the story, when real see real, we recognize When you see the steel flash, you petrified Steve Jobs seen death after just retiring Takes vision to build, God bless the dead That's Mac, that's Pac, that's Pun, that's Big Shit, niggas know the sunshine eternal I burn slow like "Disco Inferno" Burn slow like blunts with' yayo Uh, I went from MySpace to the top of the food chain The sperm hit the egg like a missle Then nine months later, the celebratory news came "Exhibit C" gave the whole world a mood change Electronic, niggas call my album Detox 'Cause they know I'm finna bring the next Chronic Roc Nation, Cole World, it's a wrap, nigga Put yo' diamonds in the sky, take that, nigga Mobb Deep Yeah Put your diamonds in the sky Wave 'em side to side, get jokes when you shine As time go by, we live by an eye for eye ...an' I'll die for you, your drama is mine Put your diamonds in the sky Wave 'em side to side, get robbed 'fore you shine As time go by, we live by an eye for eye I'll die for you, your beef is mine Uh-huh To whom it may concern If it's hate, wait your turn, dig a crate, make a urn Please, God, tell Flex drop a bomb on me Tell the minister to tattoo the Qu'ran on me Before the men in black try to pin a crime on me And Rupert Murdoch and his goons get to lyin' on me The Lord is my shepherd So tell the royal family to order my records And spread 'em 'cross Europe in a organized method We could heal the planet with' a organized effort The Jews and the Christians and the Muslims and the Buddhists And the Sikhs and Scientologist is all of my brethren Play this on the radio You never heard another nigga say this on the radio We made it out the ghetti-o Brunch with the Rothchilds, dinner with the Carters Jay Elect stop the press, criticalest artist (What the fu...)

Doin' My Job

T.I. "Trap Muzik"
[T.I. - talking] Ay I'm working here, know what I'm saying Try to put yourself in my shoes for a second Its not personal I'm just sayin though [Verse 1] Ay look From when the moon came out 'till the sun came up I was supplyin the days when where they flame up Our mamas passing, by trying to explain us Pissing in the bushes like they never house trained us But, try to understand thats how we came up You get to know us, you'll love us but you can't change us (naw) Really we rather be rich and famous But in the mean time were forced to slang dust 'Dro or crack cocaine, Penicillin to Rogaine Ecstacy, Viagra, whatever'll get the dough mayne Im tired of people mis-representing my dough mayne Oh you think we out here killing for nothing, hustling for no gain (picture that) [Hook (sample playing in the background)] Hey man I'm just doing my job Hey lady, don't mind me I'm just doing my job I don't wanna make your life more harder, I'm just doin my job You live here, I work here I'm doing my job [Verse 2] I don't know if you don't know, don't care or can't see Every time something up in the hood, it ain't me And I ain't always up to no good and know the crease And we ain't always gotta pass through the hood without speaking (how you doing) We ain't out here threatining your lives, raping your children We just out here staying alive, making a million (you know) Working hard, trying to survive chasing a mill-ion You hear us talking loud, just think of this is chamelion React to the situations, but accusations is still We vulgarizing you how...hey man you just hurting my feelings (maaan). We got lives, we wanna live nice too We got moms, dads, wives, kids just like you But our options are few it hell in high school When your helping with the rent lights and the gas bill too So before you go judging us loving us won't hurt Yeah under 25, staying alive is hard work [Hook] [Verse 3] And for you to see what I'm saying, open eyes will help If you could think about somebody besides yourself Why you pointing fingers at me, analyze yourself Quit all that chastising and try to provide some help Instead of calling the law, you busting my balls With all due respect, we don't even need to be fucking with y'all (maan) And we can't help it cause it is like this We don't like it no more than you that we live like this Always stuck in the grind summertime to wintertime Cutting school to sell fifty dimes by dinner time See everything we know we learned from the streets Since thirteen I've been hustling and earning my keep [Hook]

Make It Shine

QUARTERFLASH "Take Another Picture"
There's a miracle waiting, there's a ticket worth taking There's a reason to believe your eyes An ounce of conviction is the only admission Yeah, it's risky, but it's worth the ride And all the dreams that you've held inside Yes, they're waiting to break out, you just have to try Make it shine, let your heart beat right in time Make it shine, lay your whole world on the line Find a clue and unfold it, shake the dust off and hold it If it tells you something let me know So much is forgotten, so much worth unlocking Won't you tell me how to break the code And never worry 'bout the things you read It's so easy to tear down, so hard to believe Too may dreamers are fading, shine on, shine on, shine Live -there's a life to live Give -there's a gift to give Yes -there's a reason to make it Shine on and make it true, Work -make it work for you Yes -there's a reason to make it shine Find a secret and learn it, find a key there and turn it Do whatever you do through the night A skill in your fingers like a memory lingers You gotta do it till it comes out right You never know till you take a chance If you're out on that wire you might as well dance

This Time

AMERICA "Here & Now"
When the whistle blows And the goodbye hugs are over Then the train pulls out of the station and rolls towards the dawn With that old suitcase in hand and a surefire plan gone over This time it will work it can't go wrong Cause I've got all of our dreams mixed up with my schemes Rollin' around in my mind I know the sun's gonna shine Shine on me this time In a week or two I'll be writing to you with good news And I can just see your smile as you read about all that I've done Cause I've got all of our plans right here in my hands And things are gonna work out just fine Cause I know the sun's gonna shine Shine on me this time I've seen confusion in your eyes I've seen uncertainty and fear Keep on lookin' for tomorrow Soon it will be here This time, it's gonna be this time This time, it's gotta be this time This time, this time (it's never never) This time, this time (the day is coming) This time, this time (it's never never) This time, this time (the day is coming)
