Then take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind

Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves

The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach

Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow

Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free

Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands

With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves

Let me forget about today until tomorrow

 

Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" can be overplayed sometimes, but hell with a final verse as legit as this it doesn't matter. But really any number of his tunes could be put in this topic.

 

My love she speaks like silence

Without ideals or violence

She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful

Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire

People carry roses

Make promises by the hours

My love she laughs like the flowers

Valentines can’t buy her

 

In the dime stores and bus stations

People talk of situations

Read books, repeat quotations

Draw conclusions on the wall

Some speak of the future

My love she speaks softly

She knows there’s no success like failure

And that failure’s no success at all

Getting shocked with a pole"

There are some little sections and lines from a few songs that I've had my mind around, lately:

 

"Push Button" by Stolen Babies

The more you believe, the less that you think.

The less that you think, the more that you speak.

The more that you speak, the less that you see.

The less that you see, the more you believe.

 

"Centipede" by Shaolin Death Squad

Look at the centipede as he crawls around on the ground.

Moving in darkness, his legs find prey without a sound.

 

"Pandora's Musical Box" by Mind's Eye

The way that you use the bible priest,

smashing my face with discipline.

 

 

Without lyrics, a song would be boring

 

I must disagree with this statement. If you rip away the vocals from a song that already exists, then of course it will probably be boring to hear. But the voice is only one mode of musical expression. There are a lot of instrumental works that don't abide by today's standard rock song form; you have to open yourself up to different genres. Bands that really let out a ton of expression through musical instruments (a lot of today's guitar solos go for speed rather than musicality) rather than voice are out there, you just have to find them! The media (and 15 year old girls) despise change!

Without lyrics it would be called a tune. And instrumental music is not boring at all, quite the contrary, a song is likely to be less complex than a tune because it has to fit with the lyrics.

Just remembered a song:

"Adhesive" by Stone Temple Pilots

 

My friend Blue he runs the show

It's hot pink purple china glow

His family trees are molded

No longer grows in summer

He holds it closer

Lets it go

Picks a fruit but keeps it whole

Can't keep the submarining

Can't keep the light from fading

 

Grab the hate and drown it out

Grab the beat and drum it out

It's all so confusing

 

Ain't the same for you and me

Cartoon-like reality

Dogs and cats and children

The deepest wound is hidden

Ain't the same for you or me

Comatose commodity

The superhero's dying

All the children crying

 

Sell more records if I'm dead

Purple flowers once again

Hope it's sooner

Hope it's near

Corporate records' fiscal year

 

Down the river

Down the river

 

Have a listen

Lend an ear

Here's a song now if you care

I'll just hum along

Words don't matter anymore

Grab the hate and drown it out

Grab the beat and drum it out

It's all so confusing

 

Adhesive love

Adhesive

Adhesive love

Adhesive love

Adhesive

Adhesive love

 

Flying high across the plain

Purple flowers ease the pain

Here now have a listen

Ain't the songs you're missing

 

Down the river

Down the river

 

Stitch the womb and wet the bed

With a whisper I'll be dead

Don't let the living die yet

Grab the hate and drown it out

Grab the beat and drum it out

It's all so confusing

 

Adhesive love

Adhesive

Adhesive love

Adhesive love

Adhesive

Adhesive love

Yeah

Yeah

 

Very mellow.

I've been drawn into this song like a drug addict to cocaine. It's a little weird, and some people complain that the accordion doesn't fit in. If you ask me, it actually does well in complementing the other instruments and achieving a dark, unique atmosphere.

 

 

 

I can see the lifeless, I can feel the darkness under you

I can see behind me

I can try to hide it but without a will to see the truth

I can feel a heartbeat slowing to nothing

 

Why don’t I go when I know there’s nothing I should want here?

Why do I stay when I know there’s nothing I should say?

 

As I stand behind you, lost in all the things that I would do

Never really with you, quietly halfway in the room

Do you see behind you, do you see behind you?

 

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay when

I know there’s nothing I should want here?

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay

when there’s nothing you can see?

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay when

I know there’s nothing I should say?

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay when

I know there’s nothing for me here?

 

How I see you now is all wrong

With my hands full and it’s all wrong

And I shouldn’t have looked ‘cause now I can’t look away

 

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay when

I know there’s nothing I should want here?

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay

when there’s nothing you can see?

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay when

I know there’s nothing I should say?

Why don’t I go tell me why do I stay when

I know there’s nothing for me here?

"Long ago, I wandered trough my mind...

In the land of fairy tales and stories.

Lost in happiness, I knew no fears,

Innocence and love was all I knew

 

Was it illusion?

 

Soon the days were passing into years...

Happiness just didn't come so easy,

Life was more than fairy tales and daydreams.

Innocence was just another word...

 

Was it illusion?"

I'm bumping this topic in a cheating kind of way.

 

Brief background(that you may not understand) - Some people here at GTAF call me a hippie, but to be more precise, I am a Deadhead hippie. There are books written on traveling with the Grateful Dead, so if you really need to know...feel free to read. Or get lazy and watch a documentary. I spent years being one of those people who traveled with the band.

 

There is no explaining what we had, and there is no way to relay how missed it is.

 

Every so often memories sneak up on me. Great memories that make me sad, yet smile with a tear in my eye.

 

I would love to offer up a real version, but there would be less of a chance of anyone here listening to it over a studio version. The song popped into my head, so I pulled up a version from 'my' years to listen to. It pains me to offer up the studio version. anyway....

 

If you like lyrics - listen away.

My vagina has two sets of lips

But I don't get monthly blood drips

My vagina hardly even used

 

My vagina's got lots of extra skin

They took my outtie and made it an in

Changing Donnie to Marie Osmond

 

Operation successfull

But now I gotta pee

Through a miniature hole

Gotta remember to put the seat down

And when I wipe my ass

I go from front to back

Cause I don't want a bladder infection

 

I never thought I'd miss my vas deferans

I traded it in for a pair of huge cans

Now I get to hang with lesbians

 

Operation paid up front

Now I show all my friends

My new designer c*nt

They think I'm kinda weird

But that's OK with me

Cause now I kick their ass

Playing from the ladies tee

Theres nothing finer than having a vagina

Without lyrics, a song would be boring (with a few exceptions).

Try listening to Instrumental rock and Neo Classical metal for example. You'll change your mind quickly....Only if you listen to Justin Bieber or rap crap, then you won't change your mind.

 

Listen to Joe Satriani's Always with me, always with you song.

Jason Becker's Altitudes.

 

You'll see what I'm talking about. Music doesn't have to have lyrics to be emotional and interesting.

The sky is falling.

Got to tell the king.

The sky is falling and everything.

The sun come down.

Tell us a story.

The sun come down.

Tell us a long story.

If I break my hand…

 

The sky is falling.

Got to tell the king.

The sun come down and everything shine – (Don’t save me) –

 

Think I lost my keys.

It’s a disaster.

If I sold my car.

We could get there faster.

If I take your hand, we could start walking.

If I kiss your mouth, we could stop talking.

If I break your heart, we could get there faster.

If I lost my mind, it’s only plaster.

If I break my hand, I could get there faster.

If I lost your mouth, it’s only plaster.

 

The sky is falling.

Got to tell the king.

The sky is falling and everything shine – (Don’t save me) –

Chicken Little,

Ducky Lucky,

Henny Penny,

Goosey Loosey,

Turkey Lurkey…

And Foxy Loxy…

Maybe Foxy Loxy wants to come too.

 

 

 

Hazy…need some nourishment…

Feed me some delectable time

Feed me tasty impulsions

Gear-wheels all shouting in unison: FEED ME !!!!

 

Destabilization of the gapless mechanism: C-O-M-P-L-E-T-E

You must be aware that I drag the past, grab your map and reign supreme

I swing the currents…Hypnotize…

Carry on…carry on…

Don’t ignore me…

 

Hull is breached

This inner sanctum is being bleached

The unfed pendulum is starved

 

It was in Limbo…doing the eternal Mambo

…and I screamed…and I screamed…and I screamed for lunch

Not a Tick, not a Tock, not a Tick-Tock snack to be found

( Where was the nice personoo ??? )

 

El takidnys sed selliugia

El takidnys sed selliugia eralced (enu everg)

Numbers on strike

 

Hull is breached

This inner sanctum is being bleached

The unfed pendulum is starved

 

Mathematical cartilage of the eternal spin

Too busy to care

The engine disintegrates and disrupt the circular ritual

Devour life, feed the clock ( ME!!), dance with a dead corpse

and don’t forget to remove your boots ( politeness !! )

This biological network filed an official complaint

at the “Mental Misconduct” Department on floor 404

__File not found __

 

Hecatomb of a wavering signal…

Slipping between the keys, being nothing more than a presence on hiatus…

…waiting for some inputs…vacuumed by life…

…but my life is safe…

 

Emptiness took my hand to ease me

Imagine stillness, but even slower

Immaterial massage, pizzicato of the cortex

Motions vibrating between inaccurate time spheres

 

I move on the bomb of my memories

Squeeze the motives tormenting this surface

 

Odd band. Odd, poetic lyrics. But damn it sounds good. icon14.gif

Not my favorite, but this song has a bunch of punchlines:

 

[Eye-Kyu:] Now what you know about a sweet MC, from the 313

None of these skills you bout to see come free

So you wanna be a sweet MC, you gotta become me

If you ever wanna be one see

 

[Eminem:] Man what you know about a sweet MC, in the 313

None of these skills you bout to see come free

So you wanna be a sweet MC, you better become me

If you ever wanna be one see

 

[Verse 1: Eye-Kyu]

Yo some people say I'm whack, now if that's right

I'm the freshest whack MC that you ever heard, in your lifetime

My slick accapella sounds clever with the beats

Boy I'm the deepest thing since potholes to ever hit the streets

Forgot a gold digger's succubus , my souls thick with ruggedness

With the mic I'm like a dyke, can't no nigga f*ck with this

I got more Different Strokes than Philip Drummound

On open mic I bone your women just to keep my lyrics coming (bitch)

We elevated to new heights premeditated

Let it be that I stated they hate it now that they see that I made it

The escalated can be put to the test of greatness

Snatch the heart from MC's and I ate it

So I take it that's the reason I'm hated

To represent my temperment

If rap was a dick all you so called hard MC's would not be impitant

But pimping it, and acting like you could rock a show (so)

Harder than LL's Rock the Bells, but you is a ho (now)

Everything that you collaborate I lacerate

My rhymes they keep coming like nympho maniacs that masturbate

At a faster rate, yeah I got something for your ass to hate

I blasterate, and have you all running master gates

And as for face clutching and touching the flows

I got them open like marijuana smoke up in your nose

Bucking these hoes, I got that sh*t down to a science

Leaving them hot and bothered, turned on like an appliance

Defiance, no we won't have that

You want your sh*t to blow up?

Well I'ma stuff some dynamite in your ass crack

And blast that sh*t to kingdom come

Then bring them some of this real hip-hop

I drop beats and you ain't singing or gonna do a thing about

And you all knew from Meeko

That you couldn't hold your own with the strength of Lou Forigno

So stop that bullsh*t and flow

Yo, you need to come with the real skills, and act like you know

 

[Chorus: Eminem]

So what you know about a sweet MC, in the 313

None of these skills you bout to see come free

So you wanna be a sweet MC, you better become me

If you ever wanna be one see

 

[Eye-Kyu:] Now what you know about a sweet MC, from the 313

None of these skills you bout to see come free

So you wanna be the sweet MC, you gotta become me

If you ever wanna be one see

 

[Verse 2: Eminem]

So what, you know about a sweet MC, in the 313

You don't know sh*t so when you see one flee

You can be Run-D, you'll never beat the MC

I'll stop the alphabet at S and got it down to a T

I'm sure your bound to agree, a sweet MC crashes the spot

I'll make the roof hot like I was Rock Master Scott

Your ass forgot, so just in case you don't remember me

I'll run your brain around the block to jog your f*cking memory

It's either them or me man, kill or be killed

You will and be sealed your casket closed you still gonna be billed

My facilities filled with fans, packed to capacity

I'll send a rapper back with the crack of his ass sh*tty

If he's acting soft and he cowers

He better come cleaner then Jay Rue jacking off when he showers

You flowers got no clout with a thing

You could date a stick of dynamite and wouldn't go out with a bang

I showered the slang, simple as A,B,C's

Skip over the D's and rock the microphone with E's

Dethrone MC's and I'ma max alone

Relax your dome like a solo from a saxophone

So facts are known, writers get treated with shocks

I rock a beat harder then you could beat it with rocks

I'm greeted with flocks, of fellow follower's singers

You couldn't make the fans throw up their hands if they swallowed their

fingers

But you can bring yours let's see what you got

But don't front and never try to be what you're not

Cause you can be quick, jump the candlestick, burn your back

And f*ck Jill on a hill, but you still ain't Jack

 

[Chorus: Eye-Kyu]

So what you know about a sweet MC, from the 313

None of these skills you just seen come free

So you wanna be a sweet MC, you'll never become

I'm going to make this easy so people may actually read the lyrics.

 

I'm a huge Devo fan, and you may not know that the bulk of their old songs are weird and oddly sexual.

 

 

Here is a wacky incest bit from the song 'I Been Refused':

Bought a Kodak brownie*

Develop film at home

Took some shots of sister

Pants were full of foam

 

Took a couple back views

Took some up front

Three tries, wallet size

I was looking at that c*nt

 

 

*for you youngsters, a Kodak brownie = the first instant film camera available long before digital cams.

 

 

 

 

Feel free to expand you mind and enjoy the whole song

Not every song needs lyrics. Souljah Boy made Turn My Swag On, which was an absolutely terrible song, quite similar to his usual work. But the instrumental was straight fire.

Yes all songs need vocals. If a song has no vocals in it it would not be a song it would be an instrumental.

I'm in a positive mood so I'll choose something uplifting with "Unity" by Devin the Dude.

 

My talk is slightly different and my walk is not the same

I can't pronounce a couple words that's in the dictionary, man

I know it's easier to call me names than to understand my nature

You and me might disagree but that don't mean I have to hate you

Take some time to talk to someone who has a totally different culture

You just might learn something new, it ain't gonna hurt ya

To collaborate, combinate and ya'll can make the change

Instead of fighting each other cause your life is so plain

(Now he got his thang and you got yours

She got hers since the day she was born)

So we all got to get a long cause ain't nobody better than the next

No matter what race, color, creed, or sex

But you can better yourself by listening to others

And what they got to offer treat them like sisters and brothers

Love them even though you disapprove sometimes

We all have faults I know I got mines

Michael Jackson They Dont Care About Us

 

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, aggravation

Everybody allegation

In the suite, on the news

Everybody dog food

Bang bang, shot dead

Everybody's gone mad

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

 

Beat me, hate me

You can never break me

Will me, thrill me

You can never kill me

Jew me, Sue me

Everybody do me

Kick me, Kike me

Don't you black or white me

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

 

Tell me what has become of my life

I have a wife and two children who love me

I am the victim of police brutality, now

I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate

You're rapin' me of my pride

Oh, for God's sake

I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...

Set me free

 

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

trepidation, speculation

Everybody allegation

In the suite, on the news

Everybody dog food

black man, black male

Throw your brother in jail

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

 

Tell me what has become of my rights

Am I invisible because you ignore me?

Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now

(From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/michael-jack...us-lyrics.html)

I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame

They're throwing me in a class with a bad name

I can't believe this is the land from which I came

You know I do really hate to say it

The government don't wanna see

But if Roosevelt was livin'

He wouldn't let this be, no, no

 

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, speculation

Everybody litigation

Beat me, bash me

You can never trash me

Hit me, kick me

You can never get me

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

 

Some things in life they just don't wanna see

But if Martin Luther was livin'

He wouldn't let this be, no, no

 

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, segregation

Everybody allegation

In the suite, on the news

Everybody dog food

Kick me, Kike me

Don't you wrong or right me

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

(they keep me on fire)

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

(I'm here to remind you)

 

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don't really care about us

i can see this easily turning into a thread with 100 pages that no one ever takes the time to read, especially as a number of you have already decided to post several hundred words at a time.

 

let's keep this simple -- this hook was on my mind today, and has been off and on for a few years, since i first heard it:

 

turn the light on

wait, wait

( Believer, from 'A Moment In Prime' )

 

 

and BTW - there are many many entire genres full of beautiful music that have no lyrics whatsoever, so i absolutely disagree with the idea that music needs them - but agree wholeheartedly that they're important. what you listen to seeps into your head and affects the way you think, act and feel, no matter what you may tell yourself differently. don't fill your head with crap - take it from someone who's probably 3x older than the majority of the forum - music is more powerful than you probably imagine.

I can't realy decide which one of my favourite songs have bad lyrics. But then I tought about one Evanescence's song. I don't know exactly why.

So, I guess this is my favourite lyrics. One of them, of course.

 

"(...)Fear is only in our minds

Taking over all the time(...)"

 

 

 

I like all lyrics of Eminem's songs. Anyway, if I start searching, it will take me one day to find all my favourite lyrics.

Amazing video to accompany this song and lyrics. I wish they made more videos like this. Like more abstract or more arty kind of shorts with a little story that keeps you guessing: "what's going on" a bit like that Radiohead video there the guy is on the ground.

 

Anyway here are the lyrics and video...

 

 

wrong

 

wrong

 

wrong

 

wrong

 

I was born with the wrong sign

In the wrong house

With the wrong ascendancy

I took the wrong road

That led to the wrong tendencies

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time

For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme

On the wrong day of the wrong week

I used the wrong method with the wrong technique

 

Wrong

 

Wrong

 

There's something wrong with me chemically

Something wrong with me inherently

The wrong mix in the wrong genes

I reached the wrong ends by the wrong means

It was the wrong plan

In the wrong hands

The wrong theory for the wrong man

The wrong eyes on the wrong prize

The wrong questions with the wrong replies

 

Wrong

 

Wrong

[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/d/depeche-mode...ong-lyrics.html]

 

I was marching to the wrong drum

With the wrong scum

Pissing out the wrong energy

Using all the wrong lines

And the wrong signs

With the wrong intensity

I was on the wrong page of the wrong book

With the wrong rendition of the wrong look

With the wrong moon, every wrong night

With the wrong tune playing till it sounded right yeah

 

Wrong

 

Wrong

(Too long)

Wrong

(Too long)

 

I was born with the wrong sign

In the wrong house

With the wrong ascendancy

I took the wrong road

That led to the wrong tendencies

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time

For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme

On the wrong day of the wrong week

I used the wrong method with the wrong technique

 

Wrong

"if i knew the way

 

i would take you home"

 

( The Grateful Dead, from 'Ripple' )

Look hi atop this page and you will notice I posted the whole studio version of the song.

 

Robert Hunter(wrote almost all of the Dead's lyrics) is great for lyrics.

From Talkin' Money Tree:

After awhile I got so board I just gave the whole thing back

All I kept was a bar and grill by the northbound railroad tracks

You can stop by here anytime of night

Or any time of day

The second cup of coffee's free..., but the first one... you've got to pay.

 

 

 

It is under a minute long. Expand your mind and give it a listen - It is a cute song.

Reminded me of A Boy Named Sue, the sound and style. Nice little song though.

 

Simon & Garfunkels songs always paint this great imagery in head.

 

Writen by Paul Simon: America

 

"Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together."

"I've got some real estate here in my bag."

So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner pies

And we walked off to look for America

 

"Kathy," I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh

"Michigan seems like a dream to me now"

It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw

I've gone to look for America

 

Laughing on the bus

Playing games with the faces

She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy

I said "Be careful his bowtie is really a camera"

 

"Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat"

"We smoked the last one an hour ago"

So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine

And the moon rose over an open field

 

"Kathy, I'm lost," I said, though I knew she was sleeping

I'm empty and aching and I don't know why

Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike

They've all gone to look for America

All gone to look for America

All gone to look for America

 

 

 

Another favourite of mine....

 

Expecting To Fly - Buffalo Springfield

 

There you stood on the edge of your feather,

Expecting to fly.

While I laughed, I wondered whether

I could wave goodbye,

Knowin' that you'd gone.

By the summer it was healing,

We had said goodbye.

All the years we'd spent with feeling

Ended with a cry,

Babe, ended with a cry,

Babe, ended with a cry.

 

I tried so hard to stand

As I stumbled and fell to the ground.

So hard to laugh as I fumbled

And reached for the love I found,

Knowin' it was gone.

If I ever lived without you,

Now you know I'll die.

If I ever said I loved you,

Now you know I tried,

Babe, now you know I tried.

Babe, now you know I tried,

Babe.

My favorite song is All Along The Watchtower. I don't know what it is but it just seems so true. Originally written and played by Bob Dylan in 66' (if memory serves me right) then covered by Jimi Hendrix in 68'. It's said that Hendrix was a huge Bob Dylan fan, does explain why he took a great song by in my opinion on of the greatest song writers along with one of the worst singers ever and covered it into something that is truly an epic. Unfortunately Hendrix died a few years later in 1970. He will always remain the only one who can truly play this song the way it's meant to be played.

 

 

All Along The Watchtower:

"There must be some kind of way out of here,"

Said the joker to the thief,

"There's too much confusion,

I can't get no relief.

Businessman they drink my wine,

Plowman dig my earth

None will level on the line, nobody offered his word, hey"

 

"No reason to get excited,"

The thief, he kindly spoke

"There are many here among us

Who feel that life is but a joke

But you and I, we've been through that

And this is not our fate

So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late"

 

All along the watchtower

Princes kept the view

While all the women came and went

Barefoot servants, too

 

Outside in the cold distance

A wildcat did growl

Two riders were approaching

And the wind began to howl

*buisness man there, drink my wine,

Come and take my herb.

 

 

 

Another song I'd like to add is House of The Rising Sun by The Animals. It is some what a dark song but I love it!!!

 

There is a house in New Orleans

They call the Rising Sun

And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy

And God I know I'm one

 

My mother was a tailor

She sewed my new bluejeans

My father was a gamblin' man

Down in New Orleans

 

Now the only thing a gambler needs

Is a suitcase and trunk

And the only time he's satisfied

Is when he's on a drunk

 

------ organ solo ------

 

Oh mother tell your children

Not to do what I have done

Spend your lives in sin and misery

In the House of the Rising Sun

 

Well, I got one foot on the platform

The other foot on the train

I'm goin' back to New Orleans

To wear that ball and chain

 

Well, there is a house in New Orleans

They call the Rising Sun

And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy

And God I know I'm one

 

 

 

I can't forget Welcome to The Machine by Pink Floyd. However that song scares the sh*t out of me I still love none the less...

 

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.

Where have you been?

It's alright we know where you've been.

You've been in the pipeline, filling in time,

Provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.

You bought a guitar to punish your ma,

And you didn't like school, and you

know you're nobody's fool,

So welcome to the machine.

 

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.

What did you dream?

It's alright we told you what to dream.

You dreamed of a big star,

He played a mean guitar,

He always ate in the Steak Bar.

He loved to drive in his Jaguar.

So welcome to the Machine.

Common is probly my favorite rapper of all time. he's got a good socially conscious vibe, white suburban moms can bump his sh*t out of their ford windstars and it'll sound just as good as it does when it blares out of my kia optima... check this verse out for further proof of his awesomeness.... (on a kanye song but he's a JERK and i only listen to common's verse)

 

 

A hype filled with dope

Y'all assumed I was doomed, out of tune, but I still feel the notes

The real nigga quotes

Real rappers is hard to find, like a remote, control rap is not a

Used soup it still got life, that's why I abuse you who are not thugs
