All the hours seem to fade away when I’m with you, when I’m with you All my days seem to fade away when I’m with you, when I’m with you When I’m with you, with you, with you…

Lost in a labyrinth of love And I wonder which way to go It’s hard to find a road When you standing in a crowded dome For heaven’s sake Will you take the time to notice fate Oh, my mistake Didn’t know you went and locked the gate We gotta slow it down, slow it down And look around us We gotta slow it down, slow it down And find our own trust We should try, we should try Should try to get to know each other By your side, by your side Let’s find a place away from others We should try, we should try We should try You gotta habit for lust Hold on before you lose control You left heart to rust Need to find a place to rest my bones For heaven’s sake Will you take the time to notice fate Oh, my mistake Didn’t know you went and locked the gate We should try, we should try Should try to get to know each other By your side, by your side Let’s find a place away from others We should try, we should try We should try

One is the loneliest number Life can lose it’s wonder Chasing someone else’s Dream Far from where you started Before the broken hearted When being free was everything Let’s go back to when we started Before the time of the broken hearted X2 When your heart was true And still belonged to you

But the story didn’t end there, so we didn’t stop there We beg your pardon America We beg your pardon because the pardo you gave this time Was not yours to give The call it due process and some people are overdue We beg your pardon America Somebody said brother man gonna break a window, Gonna steal a hubcap, gonna smoke a joint Brother man gonna go to jail The man who tried to steal America is not in jail America leads the world in shocks Unfortunately, America does not lead the world in Deciphering the cause of shock We beg your pardon America We beg your pardon because somehow the pardon did not sit correctly The man who tried to steal America is not in jail America leads the world in shocks Unfortunately, America does not lead the world in Deciphering the cause of shock

I can see it like a distant storm, looks so dark but It feels so warm, I can see it dancing through my door, she wanted to be so much more I can make it read like a red letter day, we can get lost in your favorite place, I can believe it's better this way, I can believe whatever you say. Even though it looks like rain it feels like sunlight. You know why it hurts me so, why I can't let go and why you'd want it anymore, somethings I will never know. I can turn the whole world upside down, earth on the ceiling clouds on the ground, I can hear color I can see sound, we can be square I'll see you around. Even though it looks like rain it feels like sunlight. Look at the bright side, don't let it get you down, let's look on the bright side, let's be realistic now. Even though it looks like rain it feels like sunlight.

Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long way to look down A long way ahead and a Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long away to go And It feels like Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long way to look down a long way ahead and a Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long away to go (repeat) Keep looking ahead and moving on Keep putting one foot in front of the other We’ve all made our share of mistakes It’s what has what brought us to this place And so….it feels like Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long way to look down A long way ahead and a Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long away to go And It feels like Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long way to look down A long way ahead and a Here we are now standing on a bridge Got a long away to go It feels like (Repeat)

Out on the porch Let’s have a mid-city fiesta with your west LA connection Hop inside the vehicle start crossing intersections We learning life's lessons While we blaze this herbal essence A man was still a child and I have so many questions Struggle all my life to evade the misconceptions To find a place to live between the negatives and positives While trying to make money slanging synonyms and homonyms I went to pops house so I can visit moms and them Cut to the mall copped a brand new pair of Timberlands Then dipped down a one way trying to scoop up double k And chill with my people on this bright and sunny day My nigga spliff was sippin' Beck's I'm slappin' hands with Thes Ok the shady spot so we can circulate the stress Mary Jane invades my brain now I can't complain I'm sayin' what else is there to do besides relax Let the problems in your mind become ancient artifacts Perhaps these raps can help you alleviate The things that's got you trippin' you watch me demonstrate First you ignore the nonsense and clear your conscience Let your pen touch the paper write verbs and consonants As the words become a sentence you start to feelin' different The stress is out your mind you feel like the weight was lifted Terrific I'm glad we had this time to discuss I'm outro call me if you want to blaze one up When the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops, Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop. I let the music take over my soul, body and mind To kick back relax one time and you will find When the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops, Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop. Just let the music take over your soul, body and mind To kick back relax one time and you will find I try to keep it stress free take every day at a time Make sure the families in place and let the music unwind I got plans to take charge like major outlets Ride around the country chillin' in my LA Express On every street corner The importance of having fun Empty bottle spill tobacco don't nobody carry guns We keep our minds on fun and let the drums do the bangin' On any given day like Mr. Cooper yo we hangin' Under the blue sky that stay laced the smog Pollute your quarter inched cables with all the sound that we brought Can't get enough so brother pass another cold one Feel like a dad at a ball game lampin' with his son Chuck D yall word up we buggin' over time From the light to the lime original star time It's the Double Chris one And camel brought the ammo so we can shoot Game like thugs on your sport channel Take off the do-rag replace it with a thinkin cap If you didn't know tell the bro he should have known that We here for one thing and that's to remain What's the name...name...name... When the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops, Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop. I let the music take over my soul, body and mind To kick back relax one time and you will find When the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops, Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop. Just let the music take over my soul, body and mind To kick back relax one time and you will find Yo L.A. hit me one time make it funky Double down on my underground sound I'm feelin' lucky For this jackpot I jacks pot to filllin' my crates We lay back chillin' and feelin' the music relates We on the to the two hangin' with my crew Bullshittin' while we sittin' down drinkin' on some brew And til the afternoon turns to the moonlight Funky tracks and nickle sacks freestylin' all night Doin' it right no one with time music make it better My crew banging two blocks like shots from my Berretta Snub nose to the hoes who pose I suppose Honey you gotta understand your mans got flows And I'm leavin' you so by the time I get the phoenix Underground heads will fiend this musical genius Transglobal by the books Like Barnes with noble hooks Armed with overlooked talented guests so god bless crooks Who steal loops and keep this shit alive Something for your troops to sit around and vibe by For camel double and Thes to ease stress We brought the hip hop so have fun and god bless When the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops, Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop. I let the music take over my soul, body and mind To kick back relax one time and you will find When the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops, Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop. Just let the music take over your soul, body and mind To kick back relax one time and you will find Pop collars to this Wear ice to this Drink crys to this Yo is there somethin' we missed Pop collars to this Wear ice to this Drink crys to this Is there somethin' we missed? Yeh like my two way Throw boes and do the shoulder shake We throwin' boes up in here Do the shoulder shake Oh shit my two way Oops my shoulder shake I'm throwin' bows

Now we must understand this There are two types of people There are some people that like music kind of excitable OK? And there are some other people that like music kind of mellow OK? What we’ve got to get in our minds is that if you’re a person that likes excitable music, don’t mess with the person that likes mellow music just let him do his thing OK? If you’re the kind of person that likes mellow music don’t get on the backs of the folks that like to get down I have written a song specifically for those who like to get down (repeat)

Don’t take your love away from me

In the isle of the Unification, yeah [Chorus] Ain't a problem that the love can't fix Though I'm down to my thripney bits I must admit that Less is more, more is less In the struggle, this might keep my mind fresh This is how we knead dough, how we make bread Word edible, many may eat what I said Treat what I said like it's some deep shit Straight from the abyss, my French kiss Smack my rooney, black butter moon is Which past the moon the gunga peas cooked up Hooked up with soul but no sound for clearance Bastard, got no home and no parents Just be just, just just about just me That's why none of you here could ever trust me Got the need to secure my future Beautiful dudeness, salute my yutes for Them type of scroll a heart reflection love vivisection I dedicate this to all the peeps who keep the culture You my sculpture! Ain't a problem that the love can't fix Though I'm down to my thrupenny bits I must admit that Less is more, more is less In the struggle, this might keep my mind fresh Ain't a problem that the love can't fix Though I'm down to my thrupenny bits I must admit that Less is more, more is less In the struggle, this might keep my mind fresh Lived for more than a thousand days straight Twisted, looking inside my self-hate The more I study, the less I know And my hippie mind tells me to go with the flow So whatchasayin' brother brother Whatchasayin' mother mother Whatchasayin' sister sister Love to love and oh daddy We can't forget your part, in many cases We may regret your part And it's harsh, the life lesson that the schools don't teach For whom the heart beats to reach out to love Sacred feeling, [?] I keep the guts love Brenda, she's pregnant? Yes mama Triple blackness? Whoa, smells like death Triple blackness? Whoa, smells like life Close to paradise where the gods were near Those that don't hear will definitely feel Real deal, keeping it meal, keeping it glutton Everything is everything, nothing ain't nothing Ain't a problem that the love can't fix Though I'm down to my thrupenny bits I must admit that Less is more, more is less In the struggle, this might keep my mind fresh Ain't a problem that the love can't fix Though I'm down to my thrupenny bits I must admit that Less is more, more is less In the struggle, this might keep my mind fresh
