    I need some ****’n paper
    I need to rid my anger
    I can’t think with the stink
    of a messed up world
    full of messed up gurls
    and boys with
    messed up minds
    in these messed up times
    polluting my air
    disrupting my way of life

    Why do I gotta be the one
    Who wasn’t born in the good ole days?

    Why do my peers
    Wanna fill up my years
    Here on a material
    Keepin-it-real
    Lets-take-all-them-bills
    And-grow-into-statistics
    And-go-balistic
    Cause-i-still-ain’t-got-no-d*mn
    House-on-the-hill
    Little-*ss
    More-love-to-the-high-class
    WORLD
    with
    Hey-shawty
    Do-sh*t-but-party
    Chill’n-all-d*mn-day
    Not-do-anything-to-make-a-good-way
    While-I’m-here-on-this-earth
    ****-my-momma-for-my-birth
    Stupid-*ss
    Stay’n-high-*ss
    IDEAS!

    Am I the only real person left?
    Am I the only one who actually got PLANS and wanna EARN my house-on-the-hill money?
    Am I the only one who tries to keep
    My legs closed
    My mind open
    My eyes wide
    And my devil low?
    I can’t deal with all these distractions

    Like a d*mn leaky faucet
    You stop one drip but it keeps dropping
    You can’t do no more
    And it keeps DROPPING
    And you can’t sleep no more
    Cause it’s still DROPPING
    Even after you shut your door
    You still hear it hitting the bottom
    Not getting any better
    Not getting any lesser
    And you want it to stop
    Think of all the precious water
    That you lost
    Why are my people still falling?
    One at a time
    but they’re still falling
    and the how we are so like the first two men
    who strode by the lonely broken brother
    who looked on as somebody’s
    father, friend, husband, lover
    leader, shoulder, with brothers younger
    weakened
    he fell from the earth around him
    the heat, the dry
    the others who pulled him down
    they watched him cry
    where’s the good Samaritan?
    He’s suppoused to be right behind us
    Maybe he’s never coming

    Somebody find me a pen and paper
    Maybe I can clear my mind
    Of these messed up times
    Maybe I can set a rag under this faucet
    Dripping from this world
    Onto the bottom
    D*mn, I need to write.

    wow, my :heart: bleeds for you. I can pen a thousand lines if I thought it would ease your pain...but then I'll move on. Go where none has been before..."WITHIN" and you'll never be without. stay strong and stay focused.
