Cycles

Original and similar lyrics
(Gayle Caldwell) So I'm down and so I'm out So are many others So I feel like tryin' To hide my head 'Neath these covers Life is like the seasons After winter comes the spring So I'll ?? and stay awhile And see what tomorrow brings I've been told and I believe That life is meant for livin' Even when my chips are low There's still some left for givin' I've been many places Maybe not as far as you So I think I'll stay awhile And see if some dreams come true There isn't much that I have learned Through all my foolish years Except that life just run in cycles First there's laughter, then those tears But I'll keep my head up high Although I'm kind of tired Oh I just up and left last week Friday I got fired You know it's almost funny Things can't get worse than now But I'll keep on tryin' to sing But please, just don't ask me how

My Life

Keith Murray "It's a Beautiful Thing"
[Verse 1] I'ma take you back to day one, livin in this New York slum It's deaf to the dumb, only break bread with some Moms left at 15, had no American dreams To this day, I'm sellin to my cousin who's a fiend No one would got me but my older brother Little did we know the dirt we did fell back on my mother But didn't care back then, that's why she left like that Now my parents became the street, and it's best like that [Verse 2] Some nights I pray to God and ask him to pull my cord Cuz times is hard like the opposite street'll leave you scarred Street wise with no respect for authority and shit A chronic hustler of crack, a typical bitch Raised by madu who strung out on a glass dick But every now and then I blessed her with a hit So she don't have to trick It's prevalent amongst kids today Hustle krills, stack dough, and everything's okay HOOK It's the emancipation proclamation under the self devised guidelines of self preservation and starvation (I gotta live) It's the emancipation proclamation under the self devised guidelines of self preservation and starvation (and I gotta live) [Verse 3] My life in this world wasn't about diamonds and pearls It was rough growin up around the boys and girls After daddy left, shit was a mess, momma stressed But I give her an award, cuz damn she tried her best Holdin down the household, barely had money to fold Christmas time, cherished our little shit like gold I can't front, daddy was still there for me, cared for me But him and mommy breakin up was like a nightmare to me [Verse 4] Yo this is for the younger fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers Success is nothin if it aint if it was with the others We gotta make the best out of this terrible situation If not for us, for the younger generation We gotta break the chain, and deal with the pain For all our people that was slayed in vain (revenge) For all our peoples that was falsely framed (revenge) For all our peoples that's livin the name HOOK [Verse 5] Let me show, I gotta love L.O.D., they put me under the wing And then I teamed up with the most beautiful thing In the world, cuz L.O.D. we all we got I'm a fans and my mans keep it like it or not I know it hurts, havin to do everyday dirt Police all over my back, feel like bustin them jerks When I'm my road to the riches, I stay away from snitches And them bitches, and keep my mind on business [Verse 6] Life was tough so I became aggressive like a pit The only time I felt relaxed was when the blunt was lit Thinkin me and my team can be tight like the gambino Muscle in the hustle scene respected like Leno It gets deeper than the words of Proverbs New thoughts emerge, as I cop the squat on the curb Thinkin the herb strengthen my brain like spinach And heavy shine, flooded with ice might reduce my self spirts [Verse 7] Stick em, my life is so real it hurts Like when I saw my pops bein driven off in a hearse Like when I saw my mother bein driven off in a hearse Like you school when the roach crawl out my shirt Like on Thanksgiving when we got free food from the church Back then it was DJ Red Alert and Kool Herc Rockin been stripe knees and latigra shirts Back then L.O.D. was puttin in work From the cradle to the grave We all in the struggle, we gon struggle, we gon strive to stay alive All my real people know what I'm talkin about Watch each other backs Word up, my life is nothing without my niggas, word up

Plain

311 "Hydroponic"
I'm in a good way on a bad day. Thinking of a plan a way to stay on top of it. Nailin' in I have a fit if I sit, sit doin' nothin'. Which is what. I done so far but I carve a niche which sits in my good things brain. Layin' the tracks like a loco mo, spark the Jay. [Chorus:] Tabla Rosa is my brain don't mean to bug or drive you insane. Don't have to guess just what I'm sayin if I had a point I'd say it plain. Dammit my brain is blank and now I say it would be a lie if I said I was inspired nothin' to say but that's ok.. Nod your head to this. Messin' around, I'm not having it. You bite the hand I put your head out. I come to know a travesty and so sad to see. The scene dictated frustrated former musicians. Switching' the emphasis from art to money. But I demand autonomy what else my friend. I tell you what 's wrong to me the industry's ability to manufacture stars. They churn them out like Iwojema makes cars. But the blame lies not with those suits for trying. It's the sheep that keep on buying that soulless crap. Whatever they put in front of ya. The hysteria of America. Nod your head to this. Well, stress is the enemy and not a friend to me. One thing I see is to be easy goin' throwin' down sit back. And watch my life flowin' and knowing life is but a dream. You can ask my home team. Let me tell you how I seem. My economy seems to be in words not action actually ya see yes. I'm a tempest and I rarely rest but that's what you go to do. If you want to be the best so I'm on a threshold so don't tell me no. I just flow and know I can count on my bros. [Chorus] Don't you know that the devil he's in me and God she is too. My Yin hates my Yang, but what the fuck ya gonna do. I choose a rocky ass path but that's how I like it. Life's a bowl of punch go ahead and spike it.
