2 The Bottom

I got my head down, my shades on, 6 inches under my feet
Heads turn yeah heads turn, they all looking at me
Bout that party line on a Friday night, I was born free
Buy me another round, it’s going down
I’ma drink, drink, drink, it down to the
Bottom I ain’t stopping till I’m stuttering
Getting lifted, hazy, wasted than I ever been
It looks like we need another round if you’re down let me hear you
Say oh, oh, heyo, heyo, heyo
We gonna need another bottle
We beat it down to the bottom
I keep my head down and my hands up
Cause the dj playing my song
Give me another shot of that absinthe
Cause the last one got me gone
I’m sweating down to my ...
Hands all over my body
You came with her but he left with me
We keep the party going to the
Bottom I ain’t stopping till I’m stuttering
Getting lifted, hazy, wasted than I ever been
It looks like we need another round if you’re down let me hear you
Say oh, oh, heyo, heyo, heyo
We gonna need another bottle
We beat it down to the bottom
Throw your hands to the sky as we toast to this life
Tomorrow’s not promise so make it count tonight
So get that drink off in your cup, got money then spend it
That’s your man don’t be offended, I just drop down and bend it over
Dancing all with my shoes off, throwing back that...
This is how we take it to the bottom
Bottom I ain’t stopping till I’m stuttering
Getting lifted, hazy, wasted than I ever been
It looks like we need another round if you’re down let me hear you
Say oh, oh, heyo, heyo, heyo
We gonna need another bottle
We beat it down to the bottom
Say oh, oh, heyo, heyo, heyo
Yeah we need another bottle
We beat it down to the bottom
Yeah we need another bottle
We beat it down to the bottom yeah.

I Love My Dog

I love my dog
as much as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through.

All he asks from me
is the food to give him strength
All he ever needs
is love and that he knows he'll get

So, I love my dog
as much as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through.

All the pay I need
comes shining through his eyes
I don't need no cold water
to make me realize that

I love my dog as much
as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

I love my dog
as much as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

I love my dog, baby,
I love my dog. Na, na, na...
I love my dog, baby,
I love my dog. Na, na, na...

Devil's Road

Goodbye sweet world
Leave you on your own
Going to cross the border
See you when I'm home
I'm checking all my engines
Gonna tune'em up just right
Tonight I'll be runnin' hard
The Devil's Road tonight
It's so hard to find
I'll find the reason
To love you one more time
Flyin' into the darkness
Find the morning light
Won't be home tonight

Going down the Devil's Road
And He's not too far behind
Carrying such a heavy load
It's bringing down my mind
Oh, when I look into those eyes
Oh, seems like magic in the sky
No, it's like I'm going down
That narrow road one more time
Ooww

Going down the Devil's Road
Is right for me
Terrorified, a place to hide
Cause He'll never set you free
Oh, when I fly into the night
Oh, trying to catch
The morning light
No, trying to run that narrow road
One more time

Going down that road
[Repeat x7]

50 Shades Of Grey

50 shades of black and red wine
Now it's bottoms up, good times
Roaming the streets
You're all mine

50 ways to wreck, get in line
Sneak up and attack, it's all fine
Here we go, time to show
My dark side

Oh my darling, hear me howling

I'll slice you to the moon

I can be a witch, a bitch, a murderer
Show you the tricks, the kicks I prefer
So I leave my note and hit the road
And roam

Now it's bottoms up, good times
Roaming the streets
You're all mine
50 ways to get, you to whine

Then push comes to shove, a bad sign
Rolling the dice
The moon shines
49 who's next, honey need to confess

I'll make you cry like a baby in my blood staines dress
50 well is you, are you ready to die

Say a little prayer on your last goodbye
Oh my darling, hear me howling

You'll never leave the room

I can be a witch, a bitch, a murderer
Show you the tricks, the kicks I prefer
So I leave my note and hit the road
And roam

I can be a witch, a bitch, a murderer
Show you the tricks, the kicks I prefer
So I leave my note and hit the road
And roam

Destiny

Romance never has crossed our paths
So many moments passed
Wanting you without knowing how to ask

Waiting hoping you look my way
Hoping that you would say
You're so tired of all the games we played

Tell me...
Tell me I'm not a fool
Baby, won't you tell me...
Tell me you feel it, too
I'm so in love with you

Tell me...
Tell me my destiny...
When you are next to me
I see visions of love and ecstasy

Tell me...
Tell me my destiny...
The feeling inside of me
Tells me we'll be together
Every hour: our destiny!

Lovestruck
Lonely in every way
Love can be so cliché
And the loneliness haunts me every day

Somewhere
Deep in this heart of mine
A glimmering hope can shine
Leavin' all of my fears of love behind

Tell me...
Tell me I'm not a fool
Baby, won't you tell me...
Tell me you feel it, too
I'm so in love with you

Tell me...
Tell me my destiny...
When you are next to me
I see visions of love and ecstasy

Tell me...
Tell me my destiny...
The feeling inside of me
Tells me we'll be together
Every hour: our destiny!

Crushed

I'm tired of living alone
I've just discovered alone
I feel uncovered with you
I feel right here

I'm kinda silly I know
I'm not your lover allthough
I shouldnt bother I fall for the deep clear

eyes blue
And you know
I'm in line with you

I'm tired of giving enough
I've learned from living it rough
I think I know when i must make myself clear

I'm tired of living alone
I've just discovered alone
When I'm uncovered with you
I feel right here

Cant you see
I can fly but I'm not free

care for you
All alone in the clear blue clear

And you see
I can fly but I'm not free

Its kinda of silly I know
I'm not your lover allthough
I should'nt bother I fall for the deep clear

I can fly in the clear blue
Care free
Dry my eyes in a cool breeze
And you see

I'm alone when I lie still
And care free
I can fly but I'm not free here
I can fly but I'm not free clear
I can fly but I'll fall clear
I can fly through the clear blue

Autumn in New York

Autumn in New York, why does it seem so inviting?
Autumn in New York, it spells the thrill of first nighting
Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds in canyons of steel
They're making me feel I'm home.
Its autumn in New York that brings the promise of new love
Autumn in New York is often mingled with pain
Dreamers with empty hands, may sigh for exotic lands
It’s autumn in New York, it’s good to live it again.

Autumn in New York, the gleaming rooftops at sundown
Autumn in New York, it lifts you up when you're run down
Jaded rose and gay divorcees who lunch at the Ritz
Will tell you that it’s divine.
This autumn in New York transforms the slums into Mayfair
Autumn in New York, you'll need no castle in Spain
Lovers that bless the dark on benches in Central Park
Greet autumn in New York, it’s good to live it again.

Kisses In The Moonlight

Oh, what a night
Now don't you feel like flyin'
Everything's right
You can't blame me for tryin'

Love, look up there
The stars are all aligned
Now don't you think it's time, ho, ho, ho

Closer to me
I want to feel your breathing permanently
Cause darling, I'm not leaving here
Till I get what I've been waiting for
Some twenty-five or more
That's all I need, oh

Kisses in the moonlight, sugar
That would make this night complete
There have got to be
Oh, kisses in the moonlight, sugar
Fly away with me

Most of our days
We get so busy runnin'
Lost in a maze
We've got no time for fun and dreams

Every now and then
A dream is real
And this is how it feels, yeah, yeah

For once in your life
Forget about tomorrow
Tonight is the night
Our worries seems so far away

You'll hold me in your arms
So tenderly
I only want a taste
Of your sweet, sweet, ooh

Oh, kisses in the moonlight, sugar
That would make this night complete
There have got to be
Oh, kisses in the moonlight, sugar
Fly away with me
Oh, fly away with me

Don't let this night end right now
Cause in your arms is where I need to be
Oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah
Kisses in the moonlight
And you know
Oh, oh, oh
Ooh

Oh, kisses in the moonlight, hey
That would make this night complete
There have got to be
Oh, kisses in the moonlight, sugar
Fly away with me

Oh, kisses in the moonlight, ho, baby, ho
That would make this night complete
There have got to be
Oh, kisses in the moonlight, sugar
Fly away with me

Oh, kisses in the moonlight

Strange Brew

An afternoon walk through the park
I keep to the shadows until it's dark

I am not educated nor free of sin
I carry thoughts of giving in

There is a void surrounding me
No sound, and in the black I can not see
There is a chasm between you and me
You have no face, no body, no words to speak

There is a wickedness in me
I can't seem to make it go away
I am a spiritual leper but I can see
A flock of believers gone astray

There's eternal night in my gaze
I'm cast out and I am not like you
Find my way on through the haze
I'm liquefied in a strange brew

An early morn walk through the park
I look to the sun when it is cold and stark

I blend with the crows of robot minds
Never a leader, I am always behind

A voice through the rain tells me I'm here
A glance from a veil brings me to tears
A voice through the rain tells me I'm here
A glance from a veil brings me to tears
A voice through the rain tells me I'm here
A glance from a veil brings me to tears

A voice through the rain tells me I'm here
A glance from a veil brings me to tears

Thinking About You

I wake up smiling every morning
Yeah, I don’t mind sleeping alone
People ask me if I don’t miss you
But I ain’t been thinking about

All the nights we’ve spent together
And how your skin felt on my skin
And I’m just calling to let you know
Uuuh, I ain’t been thinking about you

Been thinking about you
Been thinking about, thinking about, thinking about
I ain’t been thinking about you
Been thinking about you
Been thinking about, thinking about
I ain’t been thinking about you

I go out every single evening
I drink a little bit too much
People ask me if I don’t miss you
But I ain’t been thinking about

Nights when we went out together
When it was us against the world
No, I’m just calling to let you know that
Uuuh, I ain’t been thinking about you

Been thinking about you
Been thinking about, thinking about, thinking about
I ain’t been thinking about you
Been thinking about you
Been thinking about, thinking about
I ain’t been thinking about you

[Hardwell (Jay Sean):]
I ain’t been thinking about you
I ain’t been thinking about you

[Jay Sean:]
No, I’m just calling to let you know that
Uuuh, I ain’t been thinking about you

Been thinking about you
Been thinking about, thinking about, thinking about
I ain’t been thinking about you
Been thinking about you
Been thinking about, thinking about
I ain’t been thinking about you

I ain’t been thinking about you

Billion Dolla

Hey baby things are getting crazy
It's outta control
Now all the people wears the hot blood
from head to the toes

I want the music louder now
My boys want it loud (Wow)
Stop beating for nothing
Let, let me get this right

The things we sing tonight, things that make us fly

Take it, take it, baby come and take it

Hands up to the sky, shake them left to right

Shake it, shake it, shake it till you make it

Make me say 'Oh no'the everything

Has gone cold, cold I need my wings

I want my world world and share it all

Not a billion dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla Not a billion dolla

What's so nice in this world without peace
So the bills ain't the one that I'll pick
Let me be here to hold you tight, Hmm
You should feel the same way too

Fast money and fast car
Do I count them first? I guess not
Don't wanna rush I'm Young enough
but grown enough to think twice

Say what's in your head (Just spit it out)
All the dreams you had (I make it pop)

Want a little bit of love and a little bit of faith
Don't hesitate to say
Yes I'm on my way

Make me say 'Oh no'the everything

Has gone cold, cold I need my wings

I want my world world and share it all

Not a billion dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla Not a billion dolla

They want me fall down but NO
Want my world and share it all

Not a billion dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla Not a billion dolla

Not a billion dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla dolla Dolla dolla dolla
Dolla dolla Not a billion dolla

Ventura Highway

Chewing on a piece of grass
Walking down the road
Tell me, how long you gonna stay here, Joe?
Some people say this town don't look
Good in snow
You don't care, I know

Ventura Highway in the sunshine
Where the days are longer
The nights are stronger
Than moonshine
You're gonna go, I know

'Cause the free wind is blowin' through
Your hair
And the days surround your daylight there
Seasons cryin', no despair
Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

Wishin' on a falling star
Waitin' for the early train
Sorry boy, but I've been hit by
Purple rain
Aw, come on Joe, you can always
Change your name
Thanks a lot son, just the same

Ventura Highway
In the sunshine
Where the days are longer
The nights are stronger
Than moonshine
You're gonna go, I know

'Cause the free wind is blowin' through
Your hair
And the days surround you daylight there
Seasons cryin', no despair
Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

Lonely People

This is for all the lonely people
Thinkin' that life has passed them by
Don't give up
Until you drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky

This is for all the single people
Thinking that love has left them dry
Don't give up
Until you drink from the silver cup
You never know until you try

Well, I'm on my way
Yes, I'm back to stay
Well, I'm on my way back home

This is for all the lonely people
Thinkin' that life has passed them by
Don't give up
Until you drink from the silver cup
She'll never take you down or
Never give you up
You'll never know until you try

Agenda Suicide

You could follow logic
or contest it all
the work solution makes the common house a home
The element of progress
that you mention is gone
it de-evolved to something you were headed toward
As i lay to die the things i think
did i waste my time, i think i did - i worked for life
All we want are just pretty little homes
our work makes pretty little homes
Like a cast shadow
like a father's dream
have a cut-out son
what's a worse disease
to get that pretty little home
As i lay to die the things i think
i don't want to regret what i did - and work for life
All we want are just pretty little homes
our work makes pretty little homes
agenda suicide, the drones work hard before they die
and give up on pretty little homes
(like a cast shadow)
our work makes pretty little homes
our work makes pretty little homes
agenda suicide, the drones work hard before they die
and give up on pretty little homes

Tears in ocean

'Tears In The Ocean'

You told me I don't love you, don't say that
Put no one above you, you know that
I know that I fucked up, one time
Don't right me off for life, it ain't right
How many sorry's will it take?
How much of me talking will set it straight?
Don't even remember the girls name
You're my forever and that won't change

You said you only ever wanted honesty
I'm standing here tryin' to give you all of me
Don't tell me that you're love is running cold for me
When we both know that's not true
I dropped a tear in the ocean
When they find it, that's when I'll stop loving you
Now I'm lost in a sea of emotion
Forever blinded, falling deeper into the blue
Oooh, you'll never find my tears in the ocean
Oooh, they'll never find my tears

Who knows where to touch you like me?
Who's gonna love you like me?
Who's gonna run to you when you're lonely?
Oh you know it's me, girl you know it's me
You said you only ever wanted honesty
I'm standing here tryin' to give you all of me
Don't tell me that you're love is running cold for me
When we both know that's not true

I dropped a tear in the ocean
When they find it, that's when I'll stop loving you
Now I'm lost in a sea of emotion
Forever blinded, falling deeper into the blue
Oooh, you'll never find my tears in the ocean
Oooh, they'll never find my tears
Just say something, say anything now
Look at me, don't hold your head down
Weren't we some shit, we can turn it all round
It'll take some work
It might sound like I'm making some excuses
When I say baby look I'm just a man
She was just a flash in the pants
Something that I didn't plan
But it's all I gotta give
And for you I shed a tear
I dropped a tear in the ocean (in the ocean)
When they find it, that's when I'll stop loving you (loving you)
Now I'm lost in a sea of emotion
Forever blinded, falling deeper into the blue (into the blue)
Oooh, baby you'll never find my tears in the ocean
Oooh, they'll never find my tears
Said you'll never find my tears..
Said you'll never find my tears..
You'll never find my tears
In the ocean
Aah....

Best Rebellious

Secret parts beneath
It's all i know
You're going out of this way
Would you come with me to far?
The moment you float like roll
Denial, again
So i always knew what future holds
again
Secretly, soulfully
I'm going home
Secretly, patiently
I'm going home

Near the End

And when you fell you're near the end
Will you just turn it over and start again?
Is there a stirring in your heart
As the time comes when we will have to part?
And when you feel you're near the end
And there's a stranger where once was a friend
And you are left without a word
Only the whispers that you've overheard
Standing in silence, holding my breath
Disconnected and dry
And though I'm certain that there's nothing left
To hold on to, to give or to try
Some things never change, no don't ever change
And I'm feeling the cold
Thinking that we're getting older and wiser
When we're just getting old
And when you feel you're near the end
And what once burned so bright is growing dim?
And when you see what's been achieved
Is there a feeling that you've been deceived?

All my friends are coming over, over now

Work On It

(Work on it, work on it, work on it baby)

Oh baby
Some may think that we moved too fast
But I know you and you know me
And yeah baby, that's what makes it last

And oh darling
So many lies were spread about us
Oh that's the heartache, that's the heartache
That makes us build all our trust

I know some people like to say
That the easiest way is to fake it
But we gonna make it
If we try

Gotta promise not to abuse it
If you use it, don't lose it or break it
'Cause we gonna make it
You and I

When they see us coming they gon' say
Oh oh oh
(When they see us coming they gon' say)
Oh oh oh yeah
Work on it, work on it, work on it baby

Some days are hard, there ain't no easy way
No matter how we try, nobody's perfect
(Work on it, work on it, work on it baby)
But if we just love each other through it all
Baby know that, that makes it worth it
(Work on it, work on it, work on it baby)

I know some people like to say
That the easiest way is to fake it
But we gonna make it
If we try

Gotta promise not to abuse it
If you use it, don't lose it or break it
We gonna make it
You and I, I

When they see us coming they gon' say
Oh oh oh
(When they hear us coming they gon' say)
Oh oh oh
Work on it, work on it, work on it baby

When they feel us coming
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh
(When they feel us coming they gon' say)
Oh oh oh
Work on it, work on it, work on it baby

Oh we're gonna work on it, baby
Me and you
We gonna work on it baby

St. Andrew's Fall

Big stretch and not much sleep
I got a couple of plam trees on each side of my cheek
And it's a bright blue Saturday
And the rummage sells the rubbish to me

But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'
Over this bed of mine
If I could climb these vines
And maybe see what you're seein'

If you were standing on the corner staring straight
Into the eyes of Jesus Christ

One porch, one dog, one cockroach only way to be
I got sewage fruit and it's growing out back from roots
I don't know if they belong to me
But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'

Over this bed of mine
And if I could climb these vines
and maybe see what you're seein'

Sittin' at the edge of this building,
Twenty stories below,
A' twenty stories below
Twenty stories below
Twenty stories below

I can't tell you how many ways that I've sat,
And viewed my life today, but I can tell you
I don't think that I can find easier way
So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand
With a three armed man, you know I'll understand

(Pockets full of crappiness
Can't piece together my day
So I pose myself this question
Maybe sleeps gonna get me in the shade
I got my head buried in this pillow
I got my head buried in this pillow
So low...)

But you should have been in my shoes yesterday
You should have been in my shoes yesterday

The Beginning (Interlude)

I feel like history on the turntables
Old school to new school
Like nothing ever been realer
On the history of the turntables
I'm the mystery of what's inside the speaker cables
I'm Nina Simone in the park in Harlem in the dark
I'm the musical to the project fables
I'm the words scratched out on the record label
I'm the wind when the record spins
I'm the dramatic static before the song begins
I'm the erratic energy that gets in your skin
And if you don't let me in
I'm the shot in the air when the party ends

She Don't Really Care_1 Luv

She grew up in Brooklyn
She grew up in Harlem
She grew up in Bronx
She knows she was a queen
She lived in Queens
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

She lived in Somalia
Her parents from Egypt
She was a queen in Cairo
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

She picking all the wrong ones
As she looking for the right one
In the wrong place
You remember her face
The prettiest face, the prettiest face
She looking for fulfillment
You would think she was looking for love
Searching for love
She just looking to be taken care of

You could find her in Harlem, or Brooklyn
You could find her in Brixton, or Kingston
She's a queen
Know what I mean
She think she want a baby
And she do it with the wrong one
'Cause she looking for something
But he don't really care
He don't really care
And life just isn't fair

She grew up in Brooklyn
She grew up in Harlem
She grew up in Bronx
She knows she was a queen
She lived in Queens
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

She lived in Somalia (talk about it)
Her parents from Egypt
She was a queen in Cairo (she's a queen)
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

Brooklyn, yeah
You think she loves you, but she don't
You got to wake up, open your eyes
See the way it really is
Brooklyn, New York, the Bronx
(Harlem baby) New York
(Brooklyn baby) New York
(The city) You think she loves you
She take you for everything you got
You gotta remember that (The Big Apple)
New York City
Brooklyn, Harlem, the Bronx
Gotta wake up, brother
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Open up your eyes
Realize the truth, watch your step
Brother, watch your step, brother
Move it to the left, move it to the right
Outta sight
Better go home
New York City, watch it

It's the truth, it's the damn truth
It's the live truth, the live truth, yeah
It's where the life, yeah

All along I've ignored what I've always known
That the chair I been sitting on is a throne
Perfection kneels at the seed of my soul

Tell the truth, it can't get no better
Swear to life, it can't get no better, oh no
By the way, I been meaning to thank you
By the way, I been meaning to thank you all along

One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love

All along I was hoping understanding would be born
I was looking for knowledge to sing my song
But now I know that I am wisdom on my own

Tell the truth, it can't get no better
Swear to life, it can't get no better, oh no
By the way, I been meaning to thank you
By the way, I been meaning to thank you all along

One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love

Kill Your Mama

Shame on us
All your sons and daughters
Thieve all your gold
And we poisoned all your waters
Every piece of our soul is for sale
Now they bought us
Think we know it all
Then look where it got us

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
We're crying to the wind

Trying to play God
We been fucking with genetics
All that you have given
And we only disrespected
The rate that we're going
Premature Armageddon
That's what gonna happen if we let it

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
We're crying to the wind

Is there any saving us
We've become so dangerous
Is there any changing us
Even for the sake of love
How you gonna kill your mama
When mama's only gonna love you to the grave

Killing ourselves
Falling down with a sickness
Money is the king
It's a dirty bloody business
There will be no trial
But the child will always witness
If we are in love with hell
Why the hell would heaven visit

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
We're crying to the wind

When mama gets the belt
You gon' wish we didn't do it
Had your chance for redemption
But you fucking blew it
Now the weather is changing
And the hurricane is moving
Right in your direction
What direction are you choosing

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
Forgive us for your pain

Is there any saving us
We've become so dangerous
Is there any changing us
Even for the sake of love
How you gonna kill your mama
When mama's gonna love you to the grave

To the grave
How you gonna kill your mama
How you gonna kill your mama

The Gospel

I said we're all God's children, products of the ghetto
Momma cooked the soup, daddy did the yelling
Uncle was a drunk, cousin was a felon
When he got pinched, he told them he wasn't tellin'
Auntie was a cook, her husband was a crook
Cause every job he had they be payin' him off the books
Ghetto University, knowledge is all it took
In the tenement I was listenin' to the hook
Change gon' come, the spirit of Sam Cooke
When the Feds coming, everybody be shook
Now we doing life like Eddie Murphy and Martin
On the chain gang, I was singing into the coffin

The roaches and the rats, heroin and the crasp
Couldn't blame me, I'm just giving the facts
Tryna hit the top, the bottom ain't where it's at
Everybody got a path but you could never go back

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm telling you like it is, how we ever gon' live?
If we ain't gettin' money, how we feedin' the kids?
It's a revolving door, when brothers be doing bids
I know it sound wrong but the dope'll be what it is
Survival of the fittest, this poor girl the illest
Broke mirrors and black cats give me heebie-geebies
Life seems hard, nothing ever comes easy
Whatever's in the dark, won't always become the light
If you ain't in a battle, how you gon' win the fight?
Gotta speak the truth when I'm up in the booth
The streets be flyin' birds but they don't be on the roof
Poverty is a pain like you pulling a tooth
Told the streets don't let me go like I'm bishop and juice

The roaches and the rats, heroin and the cracks
Couldn't blame me, I'm just giving the facts
Tryna hit the top, the bottom ain't where it's at
Everybody got a path but you could never go back

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Sing)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Gotta sing)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(She's a king)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah)
And they sing New York City
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Pawn It All

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

Sometimes you gotta let it go
Just to make it possible
Sometimes you gotta do it
Be willing to lose it
Freedom has no price, you know
Thinking how we gonna make it now
How we gonna feed the babies now
We gonna make it through it
God gonna see to it
Just get up and do it now

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up

See, I learned the hard way
Now I'm doing it in my way
'Cause life is too short to fall in New York
Can't get up and get away
So I gotta let it all go
Start back from zero
'Cause I give it up, I don't give a fuck
'Cause love is my hero

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)

Extreme

Bottles gettin' low, bodies gettin' high
In the neon lights and the pink sky
I don't even know where you've been before
But I'll make it like it's your first time, your first time

'Cause you've got something bright
In those dark eyes
Mess me up,
just please don't apologize

I like it extreme
Even more than you like it in your dreams
So just take me, take me to extremes
Only you know exactly what I mean
So just take me, take me

And you know that I like it
And you know, and you know, and you know
Baby take me to extremes
Only you, only you, only you know

Bottles gettin' low, bodies gettin' high
In the neon lights and the pink sky
I don't even know where you've been before
But I'll make it like it's your first time, your first time

'Cause you've got something bright
In those dark eyes
Mess me up,
just please don't apologize

I like it extreme
Even more than you like it in your dreams
So just take me, take me to extremes
Only you know exactly what I mean
So just take me, take me

And you know that I like it
And you know, and you know, and you know
Baby take me to extremes
Only you, only you, only you know

Empires on Fire

Love, it's in my veins
Under a darkened sky we meet again! Like a ghost, you're walking through me
There are times when all I feel is pain! I'm tired of walking alone
Won't you stay?
I need you here by my side

Empires on fire
Two worlds collide
When the blind lead the blind
Through the darkness shine
Empires on fire
I watch the flames grow higher

Love, it's on your lips
From the edge your life slowly slips
From the dark you make your way
Down the lonely road where we used to play
This time I won't let rage draw the line! Between what's yours
And what is mine

Empires on fire
Two worlds collide
When the blind lead the blind
Through the darkness shine
Empires on fire
I watch the flames grow higher

Wide awake when the wolves cry
Staring straight in the whites of there eyes
Somewhere out in the lost life
You find...
Love is not weak or blind

Love is lying wide awake
Underneath every breath that you take
Satisfied to throw your stones
Across the border to our homes
Now I see what I have lost
And I know I must pay the cost
To love you like I used to do
Let the morning shine through

Cool Cat

You're taking all the sunshine away
Making out like you're the mainline - I knew that
Cos you're a cool cat
Tapping on the toe with a new hat
Just cruising - driving along like the swing king
Feeling the beat of my heart
Feeling the beat of my heart

You're a cool cat
Coming on strong with all the chit-chat
You're alright
Hanging out and stealing all the limelight
Messing with the beat of my heart
Messing with the beat of my heart

You used to be a mean kid
Making such a deal of life
You were wishing and hoping wand waiting to
really hit the big time
But did it happen, happen, no
You're speeding too fast
Slow down Slow down
You'd better slow down
Slow down

You really know how to set the mood
And you really get inside the groove

Cool cat
Tapping on the toe with a new hat
Just cuising
Driving along like the swing king

Feeling the beat of my heart
Feeling the beat of my heart - yeah yeah
Feeling the beat of my heart - can you feel it?
Feeling the beat of my heart - yeah yeah
Feeling the beat of my heart
