Afraid of Everyone

Then I'm radio and then I'm television
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone
Lay the young blue bodies, with the old red violets
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone
 
With my kid on my shoulders I try
Not to hurt anybody I like
But I don't have the drugs to sort
I don't have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out
 
I defend my family with my orange umbrella
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone
With my shiny new star spangled tennis shoes on
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone
 
With my kid on my shoulders I try
Not to hurt anybody I like
But I don't have the drugs to sort
I don't have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out
I don't have the drugs to sort
I don't have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out
 
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Soul soul soul soul soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Soul soul soul soul soul
 

Killers Who Are Partying

I will be gay, if the gay are burned
I'll be Africa, if Africa is shut down
I will be poor, if the poor are humiliated
And I'll be a child, if the children are exploited
 
I know what I am
And I know what I'm not
 
O mundo é selvagem
O caminho é solitário (É, é, é)
O mundo é selvagem
O caminho é solitário (É, é, é)
(É, é, é, é)
(É, é, é, é)
(É, é, é, é)
 
I'll be Islam, if Islam is hated
I'll be Israel, if they're incarcerated
I'll be Native Indian, if the Indian has been taken
I'll be a woman, if she's raped and her heart is breaking
 
I know what I am (God knows what I am)
And I know what I'm not (And He knows what I'm not)
Do you know who you are?
Will we know when to stop?
 
O mundo é selvagem
O caminho é solitário (É, é, é)
O mundo é selvagem
O caminho é solitário (É, é, é)
 
Eu sei o que sou
E o que não sou (É, é, é, é)
Eu sei o que sou
E o que não sou (É, é, é, é)
O mundo (Wild is the world)
Wild is the world (É selvagem)
Wild is the world (É, é, é, é)
 
I know what I am (God knows what I am)
And I know what I'm not (And He knows what I'm not)
Do you know who you are?
Will we know when to stop?
 
Wild is the world
And lonely is a path
To come to you
 

Better For You - Better For Me

Fly away to the world of fantasy.
Fly away and you are free.
 
In this world
lives a dream for you and me.
In this world
dreams are reality.
 
It's better for you - it's better for me.
We are strong, you will see.
It's better for you - it's better for me
to find a way to feel free.
 
So stay with me in dreams of fantasy
and I might feel that your love is real.
 

The First Time He Kissed Me

First time he kissed me, he but only kissed
The fingers of this hand wherewith I write;
And ever since, it grew more clean and white,
Slow to world-greetings, quick with its 'Oh, list,'
When the angels speak. A ring of amethyst
I could not wear here, plainer to my sight,
Than that first kiss. The second passed in height
The first, and sought the forehead, and half missed,
Half falling on the hair. O beyond meed!
That was the chrism of love, which love's own crown,
With sanctifying sweetness, did precede.
The third upon my lips was folded down
In perfect, purple state; since when, indeed,
I have been proud and said, 'My love, my own.'
 

End of the world

It's been a hell of a night, I blame it on you
I wasn't trying to fight, it's just what we do
Instead of fucking you got into one of your moods, ah yeah
Sometimes we yell just to yell, sometimes I hate you
Sometimes it's all my fault and I frustrate you
It's as if we make up just to do it all again
 
But if the sky came falling down
And all the cities were burning
I would still come running
For you
 
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
You're the only one I want by my side
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
You're the only one I want by my side
Yeah
 
Love that look in your eyes when you get angry
Doing anything for you even if it kills me
I don't care I we have problems, never change our feel yeah
But if the sky came falling down
And all the cities were burning
I would still come running
For you
 
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
You're the only one I want by my side
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
You're the only one I want by my side
 
We've been to hell and back
But we had heaven all along
We just keep on falling
Yeah we both keep on falling
Yeah we've been to hell and back
But now we're right where we belong
We just keep on falling
And yeah we just keep on falling
 
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
You're the only one I want by my side
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
When it's the end of the world
You're the only one I want by my side
 
You're the only one I want by my side, yeah
 

Me and My Charms

You can come back
When you want
Just know that I'll be here
I haven't left this step
And when the lights go out
I pick the angel up
I only have two hands...
 
Is she here?
Is she here right now?
Drive her off
Don't bother to call
I'm checking out today
 
Me and my charms
Me and my charms
When I kiss the angel
I have a taste of you
When I take the angel
I have a piece of you
I have a piece
I have a piece
 
You can come back
I haven't left you yet
And when the lights go out
I pick the angel up
I only have two left feet
All I have in my hands
All I have in my hands
 
Me and my charms
Me and my charms
When I kiss the angel
I have a taste of
Me and my charms
Me and my charms
Down on the ground
You can't leave me now
You can't leave me now
I haven't left you yet
 

Texas Hills

A pair of jeans, boots and yellow bandana
A shirt, a Stetson hat are all the clothes that he owns
A worn-out Ford gets him where he needs goin' just fine
And when he's broke, the back seat is his home
 
And when the sun settles down for the night
on the lone Texas Prairie
And when the last night of day makes the highway a ribbon of gold
He turns his eyes (He turns his eyes)
to where he left me here waitin' alone
Those Texas hills are callin' him home
 
No claim to fame when it never came easy, no way
But I don't mind, we knew that all from the start
Ain't got a dime, (Ain't got a dime)
he's just a Rodeo Cowboy, that's all
But to me he's the King of my heart
 
And when the sun settles down for the night
on the lone Texas Prairie
And when the last night of day makes the highway a ribbon of gold
He turns his eyes (He turns his eyes)
to where he left me here waitin' alone
Those Texas hills are callin' him home
 
I just can't wait to have that cowboy home
Me and those hills are callin' him back home
(back home)
 

LAI

[Esko]
Миым, ашиды тым, пиғылыңның неге бәрі лай?

Ай ай ай...

Бірақ та көздері қара түнек.

Бірақ та білетіні қараңғы еді.
Шарабым менің, мен мас болып едім,
Өзіңе байлау тәсілің еді, біле тұра неге қасыңа келдім?

I Don’t Want To Think About It

Meet me in a doorway
I'll be painting pictures of gates
You were so crazy
I was so chaste
I don't know what happened to me
I don't know
I don't want to think about it
I don't want to think about it
You rendered me conscious
You cut my innocent face
I'm not really bitter
Then again I'm not amused
I just want to kick you till you cry
I loved I really loved you
Meet me in a doorway
I'll be wearing Middleton's lace
It's as sterile as chess
Nobody'd guess
You were touching me between the love of God and sister mercy
 

Mower stopped by stone

К черту эти разговоры, давай просто помолчим,
Забираем светофоры, в голове поиск причин.
Справлюсь без твоей опоры, дойду до своих вершин.
И слова, будто узоры, на стекле. Так дорожим,
Тем, чего не собрать, тем, что не изменить
Тебе не буду врать, не буду делать вид
Тем, чего не собрать, тем, что не изменить
 
Нашла коса на камень, мы с тобой утонем,
В одном из касаний. Знаешь, я всё помню
Нашла коса на камень, мы с тобой утонем,
В одном из касаний. Знаешь, я всё помню!
 
Знаешь, я всё помню.... знаешь, я всё помню
Знаешь, я всё помню....
 
В руках пачки Navigu, мы запачкались в снегу
Разговоры не о чём лучше я приберегу
Коротаю, как могу, век играю, как могу
Мы запутались с тобою, будто забрели в тайгу.
Выше-выше, это город томных одиночек.
Стоп глазами двигать. Эта рана кровоточит.
Все секреты спрячу, будто рот заклеил скотчем
Пламя на удачу разжигаю этой ночью
Я не верю больше твоим мокрым глазам
Я отвечу позже, дверь откроется заново
Ты под моей кожей, как особый дизайн
Мы так можем, мы умножим, с нами весь зал!
 
Нашла коса на камень, мы с тобой утонем,
В одном из касаний. Знаешь, я всё помню
Нашла коса на камень, мы с тобой утонем,
В одном из касаний. Знаешь, я всё помню!
 
Знаешь, я всё помню.... знаешь, я всё помню
Знаешь, я всё помню....
 

Shirley

Welcome the first lady to try and qualify in an NHRA-dragster competition ~ Shirley Muldowney!
 
Feels so real
Crushing the steering wheel
How many times
Must we toe this line
Halting me
Is a fantasy
 
Cha-cha! call her cha-cha!
What's drag racing coming to?
 
How many times must you be told
There's nowhere that we don't go
 
She's got good traction!
 
I suggest you find a seat in the grandstands,
Because you don't want to miss this!
 
She's just here wants
What she wants to do
 
I wonder if Shirley's got in her to hold that throttle down
 
Kills your jokes
As she's burning smoke
 
Shirley Muldowney is pulling ahead... and she takes the red light
 
Yeah, feels so fine
Crossing the finish line
 
Shirley Muldowney has just set a new track record!
 
Satisfaction!
 
How many times must you be told
There's nowhere that we don't go
 
She's got good traction!
 
What's a beautiful girl like you doing racing in a place like this?
 
Winning
 
Winning. winning. winning. winning
 
The lady got through it
Winning
 
What's drag racing coming to?
 
There's nowhere that we don't go
 
What's a beautiful girl like you doing racing in a place like this?
 
Winning
 
Winning. winning. winning. winning
 

Until Forever

Just take my hand
take your fears away
let me hear you say
You understand
Together we can be
as free as the wind
It begins
with two hearts beating in the night
shine on for me
Your love's my guiding light
 
Now until forever
will be together
there is no better way
cause love should last a lifetime
You'll always have somewhere to run
until forever comes
 
Through the bad and the best
we might swim inside our tears
but we'll drown in happiness
I'll hold you In my arms
and everything's alright
So tonight
I pledge to you eternal love
the most precious gift
that veryone dreams of
 
Now until forever
will be together
there is no better way
cause love should last a lifetime
You'll always have somewhere to run
until forever comes
 
And I know
deep inside your heart
I'll find the answer
You are the answer
 
Now until forever
will be together
there is no better way
cause love should last a lifetime
You'll always have somewhere to run
until forever comes
 
Until forever
Will be together
cause love should last a lifetime
You'll always have somewhere to run
until forever comes
 
until forever comes
 

This Island Full Of Love

I:
 
Don't feel so sad and glum, ready to bust
Put on a smile, just grab our hands and come with us
You say your blind old love was built to last
Come to our island and forget about the past
 
Chorus:
 
Oh, just clap your hands and dance along with us
and put on a smile , don t be a fuss
Be free and smile to the sun above
Lay down your hair, be happy on this island full of love
 
II:
 
Now raise your hands above, move to and fro
sway to the left, sway to the right and let it go
The sun is shining in our dreamy place
Forget of everything and find again your ways!
 

Rosemary's Sister

Brother of disaster, sister of our fate
Do you count the tragedies we see?
And brother of confusion and sister of debate
Do you remember the sister of Rosemary?
 
The doodlebugs were flying, the blitz was at its height
Rosemary lay sleeping with her sister, only nine
And no one heard the one that hit, the one that blew the lid
But Rosemary came out crying, and her sister never did
 
You fligh high, your dreams are all in vain
One moment you are singing and the next you cry with pain
And high above the heavens, in a host of angels' wings
Rosemary's sister will be dancing
 
Her mother cried all that year, as so many others did
There were moments when she'd pull through now and then
And the people there in Bethnel Street, in the rubble and the stone
Just swept it up and started on again
 
When tyranny is biting, you do your best to try
To stifle all your heartaches until it's safe again to cry
And when the darkness disappears and the light comes shining through
You gather all that you have left and start anew
 
And you fly high, your dreams are all in vain
One moment you are singing and the next you cry with pain
And high above the heavens, in a host of angels' wings
Rosemary's sister will be dancing
 
There's a teacher in the classroom, there's a mother in the hall
The children sit and wait for the bell to go
And Rosemary stands watching, she has a child there of her own
And she's waiting to collect and take her home
 
Sometimes in the firelight in silence where she sits
Her mind goes back to Bethnel Street, the darkness and the blitz
And she's heard if there's another one, then the end will be complete
Well, I wonder what they'd say in Bethnel Street
 
You fly high, your dreams are all in vain
One moment you are singing and the next you cry with pain
And high above the heavens, in a host of angels' wings
Rosemary's sister will be dancing
 
You fly high, your dreams are all in vain
One moment you are singing and the next you cry with pain
And high above the heavens, in a host of angels' wings
Rosemary's sister will be dancing
 

Jolie Girl

Oh, we walked the streets of Greenwich Village
Holdin' hands like school kids in the summer August sun
Smilin' at the passing strangers on their way
And wishin' the end would never come
 
Then a flower lady sold me one red rose to give you
For your chestnut hair, just to make it shine
Then I held you close to me, and I whispered
Jolie girl, when will you be mine?
 
Then we stepped up to the first stand on the corner
For some coconut champagne
And a taxi driver cussed us, 'cause a blind man got his tip
And tapped 'thank you' with his cane
 
And we ducked out of the rain into a dusty little shop
That traded books and fluffy hats, rings, and beads
Then I held you close to me, and I whispered
Jolie girl, you're all I need
 
Aw, Jolie girl, please don't ask me how long I'll be stayin'
You'll just damn the simple dreams that we could share
Tomorrow is just another day, I may be far away
Jolie girl, I might be anywhere
 
So let's spread our blanket in the park and hold each other close
The night is comin' on and soon we'll have to go
But remember, Jolie girl, oh remember
Jolie girl, I love you so
 

If It was Love

You used to know what I was thinking
You could read my mind
We were as close as anybody could be
it was another place and time
But we moved two different directions
and we grew apart
Oh we can't go on like this anymore
it's not fair to our hearts
 
If it was love
it's over now and we both know
If it was love
it's time to let go
 
It won't be easy, but we both know, what we had to do
I'm going crazy going through the motions
I know you are too
We had some great years full of passion
then our hearts were young
though those memories are being torn apart
by what we've become
 
If it was love
it's over now and we both know
If it was love
it's time to let go
 
What we had is gone
it's time to face the truth
But there will always be a special place in my heart for you
 
If it was love
it's over now and we both know
If it was love
it's time to let go
 
You and I are living a lie
it's cared with the memories
if it was love it always will be
 

Crowds

What do you want of me
What do you long from me
A slim Pixie, thin and forlorn
A count, white and drawn
What do you make of me
What can you take from me
Pallid landscapes off my frown
Let me rip you up and down
 
For you I came to forsake
Lay wide despise and hate
I sing of you in my demented songs
For you and your stimulations
Take what you can of me
Rip what you can off me
And this I'll say to you
And hope that it gets through
 
You worthless bitch
You fickle shit
You will spit on me
You will make me spit
And when the Judas howl arise
And like the Jesus Jews you epitomize
I'll still be here as strong as you
And I'll walk away in spite of you
 
And I'll walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
 
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
 

Smoke and Mirrors

Don't ever think perfection is love
It's just an illusion you're dreaming of
It lurks in the corners of your mind
baby admit It, It's what you hoped to find
but you better stop looking
That ain't what love's about
 
Forget those expectations
Or you're gonna find out?
 
It's just smoke and mirrors
Another illusion of love
Smoke and mirrors
A smoldering fire
looking back at us
Shattered Glass
and shattered dreams
nothing's quite the way It seems
Smoke and mirrors
that ain't how I want It to be
 
We've built something good and It stands a chance
so don't start reflecting
and say It won't last
The truth as you see It just ain't the truth
I know we can make It
our love is the proof
But you know I'm real
I can hurt and I can bleed
and If you never see It
you won't know what I need
 
Smoke and mirrors
Another illusion of love
Smoke and mirrors
A smoldering fire
looking back at us
shattered Glass
and shattered dreams
nothing's quite the way It seems
Smoke and mirrors
that ain't how I want It to be
 
Let the smoke turn into fire
a testament to our desire
let the mirror crack
so we can look inside
I'll hold you
love you all night long
baby that's all that I want
 
Smoke and mirrors
Another illusion of love
Smoke and mirrors
A smoldering fire
looking back at us
shattered Glass
and shattered dreams
nothing's quite the way It seems
Smoke and mirrors
that ain't how I want It to be
 

A Sinner's Prayer

A sinner's prayer is never answered
A sinner's dreams cannot come true
The one I love now loves another
So sad am I alone and blue
 
Upon my bosom lies your picture
With tear dimmed eyes I placed it there
Down on my knees I pray to heaven
But angels heed no sinner's prayer
 
A sinner's prayer is never answered
A sinner's hopes are all in vain
The one I love now loves another
I'll never see my love again
 
Dear Lord above please hear my pleading
Bow not my head in darkness fair
She's all I love she's all I needed
Oh won't you hear a sinner's prayer
 

I think I'm okay

[Chorus: Machine Gun Kelly]
Watch me, take a good thing and fuck it all up in one night
Catch me, I'm the one on the run away from the headlights
No sleep, up all week wasting time with people I don't like
I think something's fucking wrong with me
 
[Verse 1: Machine Gun Kelly]
Drown myself in alcohol, that shit never helps at all
I might say some stupid things tonight when you pick up this call
I've been hearing silence on the other side for way too long
I can taste it on my tongue, I can tell that something's wrong but
I guess it's just my life and I can take it if I wanna
But I cannot hide in hills of California
Because these hills have eyes, and I got paranoia
I hurt myself sometimes, is that too scary for you?
 
[Chorus: Machine Gun Kelly with YUNGBLUD]
Watch me, take a good thing and fuck it all up in one night
Catch me, I'm the one on the run away from the headlights
No sleep, up all week wasting time with people I don't like
I think that something's fucking wrong with me
 
[Verse 2: YUNGBLUD]
Roll me up and smoke me, love
And we can fly into the night
Roll me up and smoke me, love
And we can fly into the night
You take drugs (Take drugs) to let go (Let go)
And figure it all out on your own
Take drugs (Take drugs) on gravestones (Gravestones)
To figure it all out on your own
 
[Chorus: Machine Gun Kelly & YUNGBLUD]
Watch me take a good thing and fuck it all up in one night
Catch me, I'm the one on the run away from the headlights
No sleep, up all week wasting time with people I don't like
I think that something's fucking wrong with me
 
[Outro: YUNGBLUD & Machine Gun Kelly]
You'll find me alone at midnight
Inside my mind, tryna get things right
(Something's fucking wrong with me)
They want to keep you calling
So you don't wake in the morning
(Something's fucking wrong with me)
Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight, yeah
Find me alone at midnight (Goodnight)
Inside my mind, tryna get things right (Goodnight)
They want to keep you calling (Goodnight)
So you don't wake in the morning (Goodnight)
 

Lily of the Valley

I grew up in Alabama in a valley I called home
And I learned to love sweet Lily from the start
But I had to do my duty, yes, I had to do my part
But the thought of leaving Lily breaks my heart
 
If this war could just be over and I could go back home
If I could hold and kiss her once again
Then if I should die tomorrow after lovin' her tonight
Then I would not feel my life had been in vain
 
'Cause she's my Lily of the valley
And I want her for my wife
She's my Lily of the valley
I guess I've loved Lily almost all my life
 
All my life
 

Blind Man

On a cold concrete sidewalk, on the corner of Fifth and Main
Sits an old black blind man, and no one knows his name.
He plays the same old guitar, he plays the same old tune
And when the people pass him by, some are heard to say
“Play, let the blind man play”.
 
He was a cotton picker down in Alabam’
Daddy never amounted to much; died by his own hand
He lost his sight one terrible night by the hand of the Ku Klux Klan
Burned his eyes with a branding iron some are heard to say;
 
Play, let the blind man play
Maybe you’ll be around another day
Dreamin’ about those little things you know you’ll never see
So play, let the blind man play, let the blind man play!
 
The years were kind while the man was blind, but he knew his time was due
And no one cried when the blind man died, with the name that no one knew
They made his coffin outta knotty pine, with a wreath of laurel too
His epitaph was short and sweet, and all it said was 'Play'.
 
Play, let the blind man play
Maybe you’ll be around another day
Dreamin’ about those little things you know you’ll never see
So play, let the blind man play, let the blind man play
Maybe you’ll be around another day
Dreamin’ about those little things you know you’ll never see
So play, let the blind man play, let the blind man play
 
Play that guitar blind man!
 

You've Got Me Crying Again

You've got me crying again
You've got me sighing again
What is this love all about?
I'm in, I'm out
 
Your kisses right from the start
Came from your lips, not your heart
You made me happy and then
Somebody new looks good to you
You've got me crying again
Just crying for you
 

You Never Know

[Verse 1: Immortal Technique]
She was on her way to becomin' a college graduate
Wouldn't even stop to talk to the average kid
The type of Latina I'd sit and contemplate marriage with
Fuck the horse and carriage shit, her love was never for hire
Disciplined, intellectual beauty is what I desire
Flyer than Salma Hayek or Jennifer Lopez
Everyone told me, kickin' it to her was hopeless
At first I just thought she didn't mess with broke kids
The thug niggas always talkin' about how they smoke kids
But the rich sniff-coke kids got no play
'I'm not even interested' is what her body language would say
Everyone around the way gave up tryin' to get in it
It didn't matter how good your game was, she wasn't with it
On the block, bitches was jealous but wouldn't admit it
Talk shit, and deny to everyone that they did it
Cause they regretted the long list of niggas that they let hit it
And no one ever gave them shit except McDonald's and did-dick
Smokin' weed, with thoughts of envy whenever they lit it
She spoke intelligently and they bit it, always tryin' to copy
But when they tried to use her vocab they sounded sloppy
She had a style, all her own, respectful and pure
I was sick in the head for her, and there wasn't a cure
 
[Hook: Jean Grae]
Don't you know that time waits for no man?
My fate, it's all planned
I'm blessed just to know you
I've loved and I've lost just to hold you all night
Can't find a reason why
God came between you and I
If I had the chance again, I'd never let you go
Hold tight to your love, ‘cause you never know
 
[Verse 2: Immortal Technique]
Her eyes are brown and beautiful, yet empty and sad
I used to talk to her occasionally, and she was glad
That I wasn't just another nigga tryin' to get in it
So every now and then we'd stop and talk for a minute
I didn't have a gimmick, so the minutes turned to hours
On her birthday I gave her a poem with flowers
Then I took her out to dinner after her cousin's baby shower
We talked about power to the people and such
We spent more time together, but it was never enough
I never tried to sneak a touch or even cop a feel
I was too interested in keepin' it real
Perfectly honest and complete
She would always call me 'cariño' and never Technique
Bought me a new book to read every two or three weeks
Forever changin' the expression of my thoughts when I speak
It was because of her I even deaded all of my freaks
She convinced me to stop hangin' out on the streets
To stop robbin' and stealin' from people like you
Instead I took her out to the Apollo and the Bronx Zoo
Museo del Barrio, and the Metropolitan too
Got to the point when I was either with her or my crew
So I decided one day to tell her my feelings was true
I couldn't live without her, so I told her, facin' my fears
But honey's only response was a face full of tears
She could only sob hysterically, holdin' me tight
I tried to speak, but she wouldn't stop until I left sight
I felt like a moth who got himself too close to the light
Except I didn't burn, I turned cold after that night

[Verse 3: Immortal Technique]
I went on with my life, college and my career
Ended up locked up like an animal for a year
Where the C.O.'s talk to you like they were the overseer
Then I got sent to the hole when my exit was near
At night in my cell, I'd close my eyes and I'd see her
Hold her close in my dreams, but when I woke she disappeared
Just an empty cell until the state gave me parole
In the summer, came back, intact and on track
But the fact of the matter is I still felt cold
Even after my mother hugged me, cryin' at home
My real niggas would catch me thinkin', outta my zone
Fuckin' lots of different women, but I still felt alone
Relatively well-known around the New York underground
But I kept thinkin' of her and how we used to be down
The sound of her voice, and the beautiful smell of her hair
Though gone physically, somehow it was still there
I had to do somethin' because the shit was too much to bear
So I went and visited the building where she used to live
The world looks a lot different after you do a bid
The way your life done changed
While primitive minds are still stuck in the same game
Like her cousin who was on the corner, slangin' cocaine
Stepped in the lobby, and tapped the button next to her last name
Her mom buzzed me up and hugged me up like a mother oughta
But her facial expression changed
When I asked about her daughter

[Verse 4: Immortal Technique]
She told me that there was a note, for me, that was left behind
And she had left it there waitin' for such a long time
I was inclined to ask about it, but she brought it up first
I saw a tear swellin' up in her eye, and then she cursed
She told me where the letter was, and I started thinkin' the worst
Reversed my position, stepped over and opened the door
And sure enough there was an envelope
With my name on the floor: 'Nobody loves you more than me, cariño,' is what the letter said
'By the time you get to read this, I'll probably be dead
But when you left in '97, a part of me went to Heaven
I thank God at least I got to know what love really was
But it hurt me to see what true love really does
‘Cause even though we never made love
You were all that there was
It was because I loved you so much that I had to make you leave
You made me doubt the way I thought
You made me want to believe
And then I slipped up, and I let you get close to me
It was hard to not be openly when people spoke to me
This was not the way I thought my life was supposed to be
Baby, don't you see?
I had a blood transfusion that left me with HIV
Hope didn't exist for me since late in 1993
I died a virgin, I wish I could've given myself to you
I cried in the hospital because there was no one else but you
Promise that you'll meet me in Paradise inevitably
No matter what, I'll keep your love forever with me.'
What happened for the rest of the day is still a blur
But I remember wishin' that I was dead, instead of her
She was buried on August 3rd
The story ends without a sequel; and now you know why Technique don't fuckin' fall in love with people
Hold the person that you love closely if they're next to you
The one you love, not the person that'll simply have sex with you
Appreciate them to the fullest extent and then beyond
‘Cause you never really know what you got until it's gone
 

A Maiden to her Mirror

He said he loved me! Then he called my hair
Silk threads wherewith sly Cupid strings his bow,
My cheek a rose leaf fallen on new snow;
And swore my round, full throat would bring despair
To Venus or to Psyche.
 
Time and care
Will fade these locks; the merry god, I trow,
Uses no grizzled cords upon his bow.
How will it be when I, no longer fair,
Plead for his kiss with cheeks whence long ago
The early snowflakes melted quite away,
The rose leaf died—and in whose sallow clay
Lie the deep sunken tracks of life's gaunt crow?
 
When this full throat shall wattle fold on fold,
Like some ripe peach left drying on a wall,
Or like a spent accordion, when all
Its music has exhaled—will love grow cold?
 

Strung Out Again

You get what you see
I saw a rich fuck given charity
Saw an evil emperor
Wearing my clothes
 
They're far from the best
But they might suit you better than the rest
Just looking in the mirror
Will make you a brave man
 
I know my place
Hate my face
I know how I begin
And how I'll end
Strung out again
 
Was a parliament of owls
Fly over a city of canals
Floating on the body
Floating in the Dalles
 
You get what you see
But some things they just change invisibly
I don't know where I'm going
And I don't even want to know
 
I know my place
Hate my face
I know how I begin
And how I'll end
Strung out again
 
Standing, smiling
On some fantasy island
Looking at my lost reflection again
But a tide's coming in
And I'm strung out again
Strung out again
 

I love your back, I love your breasts

I love your back, I love your breasts
Darling to feel, where my face rests,
I love your skin, so soft and white,
So dear to feel and sweet to bite....
I love your poise of perfect thighs,
When they hold me in paradise....
 

Baby Britain

Baby Britain feels the best
Floating over a sea of vodka
Separated from the rest
Fights problems with bigger problems
Sees the ocean fall and rise
Counts the waves that somehow didn't hit her
Water pouring from her eyes
Alcoholic and very bitter
 
For someone half as smart
You'd be a work of art
You put yourself apart
And I can't help until you start
 
We knocked another couple back
The dead soldiers lined up on the table
Still prepared for an attack
They didn't know they'd been disabled
Felt a wave, a rush of blood
You won't be happy 'til the bottle's broken
You're out swimming in the flood
You kept back, you kept unspoken
 
For someone half as smart
You'd be a work of art
You put yourself apart
And I can't help you until you start
 
You got a look in your eye
When you're saying goodbye
Like you wanna say hi
 
The light was on but it was dim
Revolver's been turned over
And now it's ready once again
The radio was playing 'Crimson and Clover'
London Bridge is safe and sound
No matter what you keep repeating
Nothing's gonna drag me down
To a death that's not worth cheating
 
For someone half as smart
You'd be a work of art
You put yourself apart
And I can't help until you start
 
For someone half as smart
You'd be a work of art
You put yourself apart
 

The Hour-Glass

Alas! how swift the moments fly!
How flash the years along!
Scarce here, yet gone already by,
The burden of a song.
See childhood, youth, and manhood pass,
And age, with furrowed brow;
Time was—Time shall be—drain the glass—
But where in Time is now?
 
Time is the measure but of change;
No present hour is found;
The past, the future, fill the range
Of Time's unceasing round.
Where, then, is now? In realms above,
With God's atoning Lamb,
In regions of eternal love,
Where sits enthroned I AM.
 
Then, pilgrim, let thy joys and tears
On Time no longer lean;
But henceforth all thy hopes and fears
From earth's affections wean:
To God let votive accents rise;
With truth, with virtue, live;
So all the bliss that Time denies
Eternity shall give.
 

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
I of course replied
Something here inside
Cannot be denied
 
They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
When your heart's on fire
You must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes
 
So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
To think they could doubt my love
Yet today my love had flown away
I am without my love
 
Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes
 
Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes
