Truths in the city of blues


                          WORLD NEWS TODAY
Somebody please listen,
Please, let me get this off
I got some thoughts in my head,
 going back and forth like Aaliyah on tennis courts
Why the cops had to ring the bell for Sean before his time
Why they had to buss at him 51 times
Why he had to die the day before he married his bride
Why the president start this war and hang Saddam
on CNN Live
And them shots that flew by, you know
the ones that infested a city
They said it was a flu shot fighting the flu in the city
 Mad cow disease,
our meat is so tainted
Little girls bodies be blossoming,
before it catches up with their ages
Chicken wing and duck sauce at the end of every corner
Nigger juices in the hood, three for a quarter
Cameras in traffic lights, shit, that ain’t nothing new
They been filming you, since you knew you was you
We take it all for granted, granted by a nation of grand wizards
Its white hoods, in the hood, without a hood, during a snow blizzard
 Hip-hop is dead, it’s what they always wanted
She’s hip to the head, whenever she get blunted
Babies having babies, embryos have no soul
Abortions make the mother cry
 it was murder she wrote 
Needles leave tracks that run trains on the hoes
For a gram of that soda, she’ll follow your nose
It’s a cold, cold world, look at the freezing orphans
They should’ve fucked with Bush, for some of that global warming
For some of that technological, inter-galactic, space touring
If you knew what I knew, you’d listen to the specifics
Flat lines cut the body from the soul, with spiritual scissors
Energy savings, but they charging us, for what’s inside of us
Its like we’re paying for ourselves, to see the light in front us  
The light inside them bulbs, is the same light inside of you
Its not the inner G in you, it’s the energy in you
The inner light in you, and when your body dies, the sun sets in you
