Choice Of Colors

Original and similar lyrics
If you had a choice of color Which one would you choose my brothers If there was no day or night Which would you prefer to be right How long have you hated your white teacher Who told you, you love your black preacher Do you respect your brother's woman friend And share with black folks not of kin People must prove to the people A better day is coming for you and for me With just a little bit more education And love for our nation Would make a better society Now some of us would rather cuss and make a fuss Than to bring about a little trust But we shall overcome our beliefs someday If you'll only listen to what I have to say And how long have you hated your white teacher Who told you, you love your black preacher Can you respect your brother's woman friend And share with black folks not of kin I said now people must prove to the people A better day is coming for you and for me With just a little bit more education And love for our nation Would make a better society And if you had a choice of colors Which one would you choose my brothers If there was no day or night Which would you prefer to be right And If you had a choice of colors Which one would you choose my brothers If there was no day or night Which would you prefer to be right

Black Cloud

JOE BUDDEN "Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst"
Nothing stays the same forever.....not even me Check this...check it [Joe Budden - Verse 1] Something must’ve changed me, niggas might defame me But things that used to taint me, no longer seem to restrain me Strangely I’m no longer sad, mad or angry Shame-ably it pains me, feeling like this just ain’t me Mainly what do I tell all the people that thanked me Mainly those who ordain me, aside from can you blame me Motivation again was supplying me is no longer providing me Jason Williams something killed whatever was driving me Worrying less about the past more about the now Less about what I’m going through more about the how It’s for certain it’s been 30 years being fit for hurting Now I’m a different person with nothing to overcome in the mist of burdens For certain, got 6 figures in my sock drawer And honestly this year I expect to make a lot more It’s hard to live without a budget when life is corrupted In a house thats so peaceful that I’m trying to disrupt it Scream fuck it not because I have to but because I love it Which makes me as fake as the puppets that I speak of disgusted Without a paddle up shit’s creek Dig deep and see it ain’t life it’s just me So be warned as I’m putting on like I’m deformed Only so y’all can accept it as being my norm Maybe I quit working on me, maybe I given up Maybe I been lying to myself maybe I give a fuck. [Chorus] It’s enough to make you black out, pull a mac out Aim it at the sky while I’m running from a black cloud Every day we playin cat and mouse as I watch it hoverin over my glass house It’s enough to make you spazz out, pull a mac out Aim it at the sky while I’m running from a black cloud Tired enough for me to pass out, tired of running from the black cloud. [Joe Budden - Verse 2] I say it loud hoping someone can hear me clearly Trying to make my girl get it she don’t know that it’s very scary But she’s a nympho she can come barely near me She still want the God in her, think she’s mary mary The prettiest bitches just want to service me While niggas prettiest bitches wouldn’t get a word from me Some of you haven’t heard from me, some of you wouldn’t mind murking me Found that news funny likes its straight from Ron Burgundy These niggas ain’t never seen dough They can’t dream though I bump into ‘em in between shows People say I’m emo, what that really mean though? Is though the song can’t breathe I actually make it seem so I lost loved ones because they couldn’t deal with me Cherish whoever still with me though the marriage be killed in me Normally it’s just me and my lonely mind Everyone storm is different so this forecast is only mine Fans recognize my misery uplifted me Shifted me to my epitome, guess the curse is a gift to me Maybe it’s serendipity, maybe it’s weighing on me physically Maybe I should man up and tell God not to solicit me Been medicated, meditated Sedated, hated Character assassinated, all theses years I masqueraded Hard headed, if it was on my mind I had to say it Tongue on the devil’s pitchfork to see how disaster tasted Rap is fabricated, rappers are so exaggerated Wouldn’t be scared of the truth if they weren’t castrated Grab a mag, spray it, surrounded by people to shoot it before me Better unconditionally love my beautiful ugly Now lemme speak to who I cater to Would you love me to sang before my weeks were not favorable Promised to maintain being unique but relatable All while suffering from a disease that could do away with you Poetry on the beat, spoken-word for the masses Therapy over pro-tools, every word is on acid Consonants on Kush, every vowel is blunted Highly wanted this whole organization privately funded This is bigger than the Eiffle, this is alert to public Had a cop us by our tunnels and our bridges with the rifle Sentences meant to stifle, this is a man aching This is the dam breaking, contraband in the making This is panic unveiling, got potential but I never met it He be trying to come over, it seem like God won’t let it Either he never got my invite or he jus dismissed it But if all I’m hearing are the sounds of blackness, why am I pessimistic? You’ll never progress if you’ll never try All I ask, let every word I birth never die My wings spread, but when I’m at the sky Weather didn’t change like I thought and had me petrified. [Chorus]

Chrome Plated Heart

MELISSA ETHERIDGE "Melissa Etheridge"
I got a chrome-plated heart I got wings on these fingers trying to tear it apart I got angels crying from up above And they got rust in their eyes They got rust on their love But I have learned to leave no stone unturned And keep the wall against my back And the love is real as the day is long And the night is black As black as night I got a two dollar stare Midas in my touch and Delilah in my hair I got bad intentions on the soles of my shoes With this red hot fever and these chromium blues And I will feel another lovers wheel And drive for miles and not look back And the love is real as the day is long And the night is black As black as night On my chrome-plated heart Wings on these fingers trying to tear it apart I got angels crying from up above And they got rust in their eyes They got rust on their love And the only way I know where the train will go Is when I'm sleeping on the tracks And the love is real as the day is long And the night is black As black as night And the night is black As black as night

Them Old Love Songs

WAYLON JENNINGS "Are You Ready For The Country"
Down the dusty Dixie road My old Levi's draggin' tracks Nobody cares about where I'm going They all know I'm coming back. Wish I had me a true fine woman Let her rock me all night long Baby we could get it together Like people do in them old love songs. I can hear somebody laughin' Funny how it makes me sad Lord I wish it was Sunday morning Saturday night sure looking bad. Wish I had me a true fine woman Let her rock me all night long Baby we could get it together Like people do in them old love songs. I wish I had me a true fine woman Let her rock me all night long Baby we could get it together Like people do in them old love songs. Yeah baby, we could get it together Like people do in them old love songs...

The Return Of The Crazy One

DIGITAL UNDERGROUND "The Body Hat Syndrome"
Wussup wit' the love wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love wussup wit' the love? Now men want racism black folks in prison me bar What's goin' on with the luh uh ove? Boo ya kaw is the sound brothers goin' down in the worst way I got my son a gun for his birthday. Now we've had enough everybody wants to be tough But I give the props to brothers on my level instead of trying to be above, 'Cause I see nothin' feminine about givin' your brother some love. Look deeply in each other's eyes: you know we are the ones Racism is a cloud that blocks us from the sun. One brother speaks in African, one sings Jamaican songs, Both of them are black men, but they still can't get along. Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? [Yo, I know this brother named Tony, he beat up his own mom, man. [Nah, man]. Straight up. Him and his two brothers, they all live in the same house with his mom, right. [Right]. They all in their twenties, she the only one working. Anyway, one night she needed to get some sleep, she told him to turn his music down, and he just straight flipped on her: slapped her all up against the wall, cursed her out...] Mommy and Daddy they got married, they make love every night But Momma's gettin' tired, and Poppa hits the pipe at night. I see 'em kissin' wishin' I got the props that Pops, I mean the rocks, got I hope she hugs me, 'cause she never dug me. I figure still I hustle, tussle with the fool at school, The one that Momma sold my sneakers, thought she says he's freakin' her, Had the doubt until I caught 'em, then I fought 'im, then she slapped me, Hollered at me talkin' 'bout I messed up her ten dollars. God damn! Drug dealers dealin' to the kiddies, Livin' in the city ain't no pity on the itty-bitty. We try to cry, but still they all die, I try to speak to the youth, and the truth is they all high. What can I say but watch your back, youngster, As I sit and wonder, my other brother's steadily goin' under. It's like a curse, and it hurts 'cause it's worse, Momma's crazy 'cause her baby's in a herse. Wussup wit' the love? [Yo, my homey was joggin in this upper-class white neighborhood, he had his headphones on, right, you know, just joggin'. This old lady called the police. Just 'cause he was black, they stomped my homey. He couldn't here 'em though 'cause he had his headphones on. They ain't chase him, they didn't shine their lights on him. They just shot him ...dead!] This land once owned by Indians, who then would learn to burn. A treagedy, because from them there was so much to learn, You will find the key to life is checking for you friends, Everything's gonna be alright, I got to let you know that I'm in love with you. [Dope fiends sellin' their babies] I'm so in love with you. [I know man, you can't even say 'what's up' to a brother no more] People, I'm in love with you. [Fool talkin' about 'what's up', fool don't know me man...] Yes I'm in love with you. [...I put one in him! Hey, yo, you got your thang? Yeah, man, I'm strapped] It blows my mind to see so many people sufferin' [So many people] It blows my mind to see so many people down, [Everybody's down] And I just can't understand, why there must be such fighting, [Everybody's acting crazy] It blows my mind to see the pain that's all around. [...the pain that's all around] Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wake up! Wake up! Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wussup wit' the love, wussup wit' the love? Wake up! Please....wake up.
