ME PHI ME
from the Me Phi Me album, "Opus No. 3 in
But I thought that something stronger remained
of the money
...and the family
...and the fame.
It sent me into shock when you blew out our brains!
Maybe I walk a mile in your shoes
You know I'd probably do the same.
But you see I didn't, so I shed this here tear for
Wishing you'd remained.
Hard life from day 1
Grew up tough
Running like a thug
Huh, I knew
how it was
But we use to say, 'if they could give me enough'
my ways and tried to spread a little love
Yeah, I Keep My Head Up
But I was confused
'cause they told Me 2 stay down
|How far down?
Six feet deep it seems
And the whole
world could not suppress a gangsta's dreams
U know what' I'm sayin'?
Gotta live howyawanna live?
Love 4 that!
And I'm gonna miss U
We cry when the Messiah gets here
There ain't enough brilliant brothers like U 2 help me handle it
So I pulled out my
own pistol and threw it in the sky
U ask me why?
I don't wanna see another Black Man die!
I can't see another Black Man die.
Turned on the TV.
believe what they was telling me!
They said my hero would no longer be
The type of
personality we all see.
So even though he got mansions and yachts
It's not enough to stop becoming foolish about the twat.
Top of game.
King of sport.
I wish you would've kept up your shorts.
Had to make a run to the store, but I had to pull
I couldn't take no more.
With tears in my eyes I pulled into a gas station.
we gotta' live in a fucked up nation.
Pull out a Trojan.
Blow a ballon.
brilliant ones burn out so soon.
The whole world at your foot.
Was the ass that good?
hard to believe how we can lose so much and yet gain so much.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
