    False Dreams

    Howard Street separates the burb from the big city.
    Riding through the jungle is a **** pity.
    It’s early December and it’s 65 degrees in the Chi.
    Girls got on Summer dresses showing off their thighs,
    Only the Lord knows why.

    I see my people looking like zombies,
    Searching for this false dream that’s beyond me.
    My young brothas searching for the dope dollar.
    My sistahs looking for a reason to holla.

    I know this isn’t the substance my people are made of.
    My elders didn’t praise this false dream.
    They worked and died for me to have the cream.
    That’s why I know there has to be a conspiracy,

    From Cali to Miami, it’s the exact same story line.
    Do you understand my point or am I wasting your precious time?
    I don’t think you’re listening to me.
    Don’t mean to be all in your face and pushy.

    It’s just something heavy on my heart that I need to get off.
    “Friends” of mine sell dope to my parents without a thought.
    Makin’ money off my pain, then showing me what they bought.
    Phat Farm, Tommy, The new Jordans, and Platinum Fubu,
    It’s a brainwashing system when it’s all said and through.

    I KNOW this isn’t the substance my people are made of.
    I KNOW IT!

    I just can’t sit around and take it.
    I know there’s a conspiracy going on.
    From Chi Town to Atlanta, GA, it’s the same story line.
    Do you feel my point or I’m I blowing your high?
    Please except my apology…Didn’t mean to waste your ****in’ time.

    ROYAL T.

    Royal_T,

    As long as we speak the truth and continue our verbal barrage on those that sleep. eventually they've got to wake up. it's not a mattyer of if, just a matter of when. And those that refuse to wake up, we need to tell them "get the ***** out the way" and let us do what needs to be done. Nice scribe.

    Peace and truth
    blak

    Express yo' self!

    I think one has to be naive to think that
    with all the money and resources floating
    around that there actually ain't no conspiracies.
    when to so many money is god. But when
    we open our eyes and come together for good,
    good things got to happen.
    Say the thang baby gurl!

    Just hanging around in the past, thought I'd send this back instead of give a new verse. I like to take my time when I can.
