Original and similar lyrics
[Malcolm X] Many of our people.. stealing.. gambling.. Many of our people turn to.. [Run] Crime, time, nah I get mine Climb, do fine, wine and just dine Make, break, ill and just take fate for God sake a break is at stake Crack, wack, smack you right back In fact you might last to jack if I crack Cry, lie, do or just die Live positive and give, but that's why 'I'm not..' [cuts:] 'going' .. 'out, out out' .. 'like that', 'I'm not!!' 'going' .. 'out, out out' .. 'like that' (like like, like..) 'going' .. 'out, out out' .. 'like that', 'I'm not!!' 'going' ..

I Ain't No Joke

Eric B. Rakim "Paid In Full"
It's been a long time I shouldn't have left you Without a strong rhyme to step to Think of how many weak shows you slept through Time's up I'm sorry I kept you Thinking of this you keep repeating you miss The rhymes from the microphone soloist And you sit by the radio hand on the dial soon As you hear it pump up the volume Dance wit the speaker 'till you hear it blow Then plug in the headphone 'cause here it go It's a 4 letter word when it's heard, it control your body to dance (You got it) soul, Ditects the tempo like a red alert Reaches your reflex, so let it work When this is playing, you can't get stuck wit The steps, so get set and I'm a still come up wit A gift to be swift, follow the leader, the rhyme will go Def wit the record that was mixed a long time ago It can be done but only I can do it For those that can dance and clap your hands to it I start to think and then I sink Into the paper like I was ink When I'm writing, I'm trapped in between the lines, I escape when I finish the rhyme... I got soul You got it (4x) I know you got soul Picture a mic, the stage is empty A beat like this might tempt me To pose, show my rings and my fat gold chain Grab the mic like I'm on Soul Train But I'll wait 'cause I mastered this Let the others go first so the brothers don't miss Eric B. break the sticks (you got it) Rakim will begin when you make the mix I'll experiment like a scientist You wanna rhyme, you gotta sign my list 'Cause I'm a manifest and bless the mic I hold You want it next? then you gotta have soul 'Cause if you ain't got it, I'm a make an encore Take the mic, make the people respond for The R, 'cause that's the way it'll have to be If you wanna get on after me Think about it, wait, erase your rhyme Forget it and don't waste your time 'Cause I'll be in the crowd if you ain't controlling it Drop the mic, you shouldn't be holding it This is how it should be done This style is identical to none Some try to make it sound like this but you're getting me So upset that I'm wet 'cause you're sweating me I drip steam like a microphone fiend Eager to MC is my theme I get hype when I hear a drum roll Rakim is on the mic and you know I got soul You got it (5x) I got soul (you got it) that's why I came To teach those who can't say my name First of all, I'm the soloist, the soul controller Rakim gets stronger as I get older Constant elevation causes expansion I write my rhyme while I cool in my mansion Then put it on tape and in the city I test it Then on the radio the R's requested You listen to it, the concept might break you 'Cause almost anyone can relate to... Whoever's out of hand, I'm give him handles Light 'em up, blow 'em out like candles Or should I just let him melt? Then give him a hand so they can see how it felt I'm not bold just cuz I rock gold Rakim is on the mic and you know I got soul You got it (4x) Now I'm a stop to see what you got Get off the mic before I get too hot I want to see which posse can dance the best It should be easy 'cause the beat is fresh Now if your from Uptown, Brooklyn- bound, The Bronx, Queens, or Long Island Sound, Even other states come right and exact, It ain't where you're from, it's where you're at Since you came here, you have to show and prove And do that dance until it don't move 'Cause all you need is soul self-esteem will release, The rest is up to you, Rakim 'll say peace You got it (10x)

Sinister

AESOP ROCK
[Sample from Snatch ] Do you know what 'nemesis' means? A righteous infliction of retribution Manifested by an appropriate agent.... Personified in this case by me [Aesop Rock] We're all in the same gang, bread and butter Just a couple subdivisions who naturally hate each other Influences shark biting the fuck outta your brother Friendship is Professor Plum ratting on Colonel Mustard You are now witnessing the world's most craft version Of a barnstormer, reveal time with a jagged edge Arm mortars and ?free minds? for a bastard sledge On the style diamond cutter Swung before that magnificent havok sketch You fidget like a nervous culprit gulping Sweat a bullet, dead a bullshit sequence reactor Speaking disaster Who leaped off the canvas to provoke a ?style miner? Fake as the grass with a sturdy belly and his work to sell me I got my word to tell you I got absurd magic For the forks like pistons pumping through the realm my family habits (?Madder or Rabbit Hat? combination) Nah, more like I'm spitting pixleak dust Till the mixed vapor community combusts [Yeshua Da Poed] I hold words for ransom Demand some attention pays Not to mention praise for their release on a page It might amaze the light of day I never said I, gave, them all, the fight to be brave More insight to behave Raw like them others Whose ads have been paid for by some brothers While some of us lie in the eyes of others I discovered another way to stay undercover Kill everyone involved, Unsolve Mysteries, this to me is how to leave matters resolved Out of this all, you should take a break, ask the fake Get snatched out your habitat and left on the side of alake I try to debate Whether a clean getaway is harder to make Than a call to the cleaners Dropped off a seamless bag Zipped it up with enough cash to pay the cat With the aqua demeanor [Vast Aire] God is a name I call myself I don't like Ugly, Original, Synthetic I breathe rusty air logic It becomes the lung, the mind is a closet That is if it's a walk-in, cuz I'm open You fell from the clips of weakness, I scoped it I'll ball your rhyme up and stuff it inside my mouth As if this was the first grade...(C'mon man) And you'll just stand there Your eyes'll water up And your teeth'll grind cuz you rhyme first grade Seeing me is like time, I'm a caged poet But I think life is more than a jail sentence That's why I, took my time Doing calisthenics which euphemisms to hand out a life sentence When I rhyme, I put my ass crack in it And you in a glass bottom boat with a crack in it So fuck your attitude My poetry's position is the sole definition of latitude Sinister *repeated* You tell the angels in heaven you've never seen An evil so singular personified as you being hit In the face by the man who killed you

Comfortably Numb (Radio Edit)

SCISSOR SISTERS
Hello, hello, hello. Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anybody home? Come on, now. I hear you're feeling down. Well I can ease your pain, And get you on your feet again. Relax. I need some information first. Just the basic facts: Can you show me where it hurts? There is no pain, you are receding. A distant ship's smoke on the horizon. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'. When I was a child I caught a fever. My hands felt like two balloons. Now I got that feeling once again. I can't explain, you would not understand. This isn't how I am. I ha-ha-have be-come com-fortably numb. Ok. It's just a little pinprick. There'll be no more --aaaaaahhhhh! But you may feel a little sick. Can you stand up now? I do believe it's working. Uh-hu. That'll keep you going for the show. Come on it's time to go. Gotta keep you going through the show. Come on it's time to go. Gotta keep you going through the show. Come on it's time to go. Gotta keep you going through the show. Come on it's time to go. There is no pain, you are receding. A distant ship's smoke on the horizon. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'. When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse, Out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look but it was gone. I cannot put my finger on, The child is grown, the dream is gone. I ha-ha-have be-come com-fortably numb. I ha-ha-have be-come com-fortably numb. Uh-hu (x14) I ha-ha-have be-come com-fortably numb.
