    I remember when Jada wrote Jason's lyrics
    across her heart
    lounging on third rails
    in southern cities
    train watchin from a distance
    attachin all her hopes and dreams
    to the places they might have been
    that she had never seen
    a big dreamer in a small town

    I remember that ghost from
    Wild style
    Whose name I never learned
    Whose face I barely remember
    One of many young brothers and
    War vets
    Whose message
    Like Lyric's dreams
    Were carried to places unseen

    Young prophets with no people
    Only arasol for scripture

    I remember the scene where this train
    In the NYC was covered with graffiti
    Or should I say burners, tags and throw-ups
    A million voices
    A million dreams
    all screamin from the margins. .
    But still never noticed
