Chika – Fairy Tales Lyrics (feat. Bj The Chicago Kid)

[Intro: BJ the Chicago Kid]
It’s up to you (It’s up to you)
Yeah
If fairytales are true, yeah

[Verse: CHIKA]
Fairy tales are stories with lessons and allegories
That tell us about the world that could be
But I see no mention of bad shorties or niggas sippin’ on forties
No heroes inside a book look like me
I don’t ever mourn my childhood
Know my folks is happy that they child good
Imperative a narrative reflect what’s up in my hood
Figured that the remedy is simple
Let’s make a couple hits for all the kids that need a symbol
Let’s remind them that they matter, the media can chatter
And peer into their lives to form statistics, like we data
Spin a yarn ’bout candy ladies or ’bout waking up on Saturday
Mama blasting gospel, cleanin’ house gon’ take ’bout half the day
Afterwards, we pass a J, think of all who passed away
Smoke blown out the window
That’s a sin, though, know what Pastor say
In services ’til late noon, wafers paired with grape juice

Create a classic spittin’ ’bout some shit we can relate to
‘Cause ain’t nobody talking bout a beanstalk, nigga
Lemme tell you when the threes drop, nigga
We get higher than the treetops, nigga
Pied Piper gone to jail because the streets talk, nigga
Role models only real until the beat stop, nigga
Karens love the coloreds if it’s Deepak, nigga
But her walls so dry, call it sheet rock, nigga
This is heat rock, bigger than the world that I’m livin’ in
If I gotta kill a beat, I’ll make it deliberate
Fee fi fo fum, we live, go dumb
Get a little streetwear, now you think you know some
Show and tell, dress up, little weird after you four-some
Fiendin’ for oppression, I can really let you hold some
Better bet they show they ass, better bet I throw sum
Jumpin’ through the hoop like an acrobat
Then a nigga jump into the booth after passin’ that
My people the truth and so it’s true, they be after that

Young Fathers – Turn lyrics

[Intro]
I’ve always been this way
All my days
I’ve always been this way
All my days
I’ve always been this way
All my days
You really don’t want the imitation
You really don’t want the imitation

[Chorus]
I’m not like you
I’m not like you
It’s just like you to
Ooooh ooooh
Wanna turn

[Verse]
Money buys you isolation
Give the Pied Piper a raise
Sold my shortcomings
For a price at the Bureau of Change
Champagne socialite
Blue eyed soul boy
Too big a fight to fight
Yeah, you’re better off dead boy
Soon the peace will come to an end
So gimme gimme a chance
To change
So take the basket to collection
Here’s the thing about progression
I didn’t work this damn hard
To stay where I belong
I didn’t work this damn hard
To stay where I belong

Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah

[Chorus]
Wanna turn
My eyes blue
I’m not like you
I’m not like you
Don’t you turn
My brown eyes blue
I’m not like you
I’m not like you
Oooh oooh

[Bridge]
You sing your lilt
And drink your milk
To make you strong
And you ain’t wrong
To use your skills
To get where you belong
You set demands
You take your chance
But you are not special
Learn your lessons
No such things as blessings
You sing your lilt
And drink your milk
To make you strong
And you ain’t wrong
To use your skills
To get where you belong
You set demands
You take your chance
But you are not special
Learn your lessons
No such things as blessings

[Chorus]
Wanna turn
My eyes blue
I’m not like you
I’m not like you
Don’t you turn
My brown eyes blue
I’m not like you
I’m not like you
Oooh oooh

Always been this way
Always been this way
Always been this way
Always been this way
I’m not like you
Not like you
I’m not like you
Not like you
I’ve always been this way
Not like you
I’ve always been this way
Not like you

[Chorus]
Wanna turn
My eyes blue
I’m not like you
I’m not like you
Don’t you turn
My brown eyes blue
I’m not like you
I’m nothing like you
Nah nah nah

A Perfect Circle – By And Down The River lyrics

Moving in and out of the shadow
It’s no easy mission, holding on to how I picture you

Showing only bits and pieces
‘Til the light betray you and your empty allocution

Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility
Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility

Searching your eyes for a hint or trace of it
Searching your eyes for humility
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace
I’m still searching, searching

Showing only bits and pieces
‘Til the tide betrays you and your empty allocution
Float the Piper by and down the river
Carcass crippled underneath the pounding waves of adoration

Pied Piper, float on down the river
Bloated carcass crippled me, the weight of adoration
Moving in and out of the shadow
It’s no easy mission, holding on to how I picture you

Eminem – Lose Yourself (Drum & Bass Remix) Lyrics

[Intro]
Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted, in one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

[Verse 1]
Yo! His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There’s vomit on his sweater already: Mom’s spaghetti
He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s choking, how? Everybody’s joking now
The clock’s run out, time’s up, over—blaow!
Snap back to reality, oh, there goes gravity, oh
There goes Rabbit, he choked, he’s so mad, but he won’t
Give up that easy, no, he won’t have it, he knows
His whole back’s to these ropes, it don’t matter, he’s dope
He knows that, but he’s broke, he’s so stagnant, he knows
When he goes back to this mobile home, that’s when it’s
Back to the lab again, yo! This whole rhapsody
Better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him

[Chorus]
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better…

[Verse 2]
His soul’s escaping through this hole that is gaping
This world is mine for the taking, make me king
As we move toward a New World Order
A normal life is boring; but superstardom’s
Close to post-mortem, it only grows harder
Homie grows hotter, he blows, it’s all over
These hoes is all on him, coast-to-coast shows
He’s known as the Globetrotter, lonely roads
God only knows, he’s grown farther from home, he’s no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose, ’cause here goes the cold water
These hoes don’t want him no mo’, he’s cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose-dove and sold nada, and so the soap opera
Is told, it unfolds, I suppose it’s old, partner
But the beat goes on: da-da-dom, da-dom, dah-dah, dah-dah

[Chorus]
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better…

[Verse 3]
No more games, I’ma change what you call rage
Tear this motherfuckin’ roof off like two dogs caged
I was playin’ in the beginning, the mood all changed
I’ve been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin’ and stepped right in the next cypher
Best believe somebody’s payin’ the Pied Piper
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can’t get by with my nine-to-
Five, and I can’t provide the right type of life for my family
‘Cause man, these goddamn food stamps don’t buy diapers
And there’s no movie, there’s no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard, and it’s gettin’ even harder
Tryna feed and water my seed, plus teeter-totter
Caught up between bein’ a father and a prima donna
Baby mama drama, screamin’ on her, too much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony’s
Gotten me to the point I’m like a snail, I’ve got
To formulate a plot or end up in jail or shot
Success is my only motherfuckin’ option—failure’s not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer’s got
To go; I cannot grow old in Salem’s Lot
So here I go, it’s my shot, feet: fail me not
This may be the only opportunity that I got

[Chorus]
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better…

[Outro]
You can do anything you set your mind to, man

Lux Occulta – Pied Piper letras

Beautiful and wealthy is our town of Hamelin
Neighbors are green with envy, proud my fellow citizens
Our stomach’s are full, our dreams are calm
We can either kill or buy all that comes our way

Please your honors – said he – I’m able
By means of a secret charm, to draw
All creatures living beneath the sun
That creep or swim or fly or run
After me so as you never saw!
And I chiefly use my charm
On creatures that do people harm
The mole and toad and newt and viper
And people call me the pied piper

But there’s this small embarrassing thing
Filthy, disgusting, stinking rats
They don’t belong here
They don’t match
Did almighty lord create the scum?

You can have your perfect world
But you will have to pay the price

‘Cause there’s the small, embarrassing thing
Filthy, disgusting, stinking us
We don’t belong here
We don’t match
Your father in heavens didn’t create us

Pay your bills fellow citizens
Or we will take your children with us
It’s not about hatred, we’re not your enemies
But you see, we have to feed the rats

And you will never learn
Who’s the hunter and who’s prey in this game
And you will never learn
Who is Pied Piper and who’s rat in the end
And you will never learn
Who is the leader and who’s been lead
