    Rollercoaster (my third addition to destee.com)

    they say life has ups and downs and ups again
    twirling in the tides and whirling in the wind
    when will this whirlwind end?
    when.. the laws of nature begin

    she will take you to the sky if you simplify
    until you defy gravity how high can you fly?

    all aboard the midnight express
    to the moonlight crescent controlling the crest
    i'm starting to see spaceships and angels undressed
    drinking fine wine thinking i'm blessed
    oh, yes

    i didn't forget where i came from
    the slums where we bang drums like untamed guns
    same young, dumb kids pitching packs for funds
    i see ol' schools and angels undressing for fun
    under the sun we sin, we men, not mice

    once
    twice
    thrice... keep shaking the dice
    thick smoke penetrated by red and blue lights...
    put that $#@! out! get ready for the ride of your life

    in pursuit of black males in pursuit of happiness
    they just happen to be taking a right
    is it true that crack sales is known as trappin'?
    then tell me why we acting like mice

    i've been through loops and zig-zags, tunnels and turns
    rings of fire and didn't get burned i just learned

    stand here, are you tall enough?
    but, are you small enough..
    to know that you are controlling this ride -Sha'iyn:wchair: :horse: :car:

    The ride I'm on is dynamite
    Sha'iyn, might have got it right!

    I enjoy such esoteric works.

    We have choices in this life, sometimes we doesn't properly fasten our seatbelts, sometimes the operator is asleep at the wheel. Your scribes are like a breath of fresh air.

    yes

    i see you understand what's going on out there

    it GOES deeper than you would EVER realize

    continue to search for the truth

    keep your head up

    and avoid that street ish

    i'm so glad you see it for what it really is

    DESTRUCTIVE

    to us

    peace
