* LYRICS

never show love

for all the troubles that I’ve already had I started askin myself
dependent what’s that? women wild on the grind, you better lose your hat.
stopped getting beat and shouted at,
as soon as we licked rhyme and licked time and knew we had
to protect ours thus it would stay
stepped back on the scene to proceed to the hood
with my peoples incarcerated, being shot or starved to death
shit never change
some of them on the corner sippin the rum on the daily, what’s that
deportations on the news again
they got me hangin loose
with that skin color blues
and the lack of jobs,
where’s mother the goose?
if you wanna bring some, bring liquor and booze
but you best be quick to
clean your dirty hands
to snatch a piece of the cake
and change for the better cuz
the devil comes countin’ the heads he ought to climb like a ladder
and never look back
they want you to get new attitude
new clothes new game new flames new benz,
what’s that?
no cellular body ever told you to be ahead of your name
to achieve, so trust your guts and stay gutter
as long as you embrace your will power

REV
you’ll be able to get to what’s underneath
you’ll be able to reach to what’s above
even if they never show love
you’ll be able to reach it (x2)

as time swings hard like a hammer,
I watch the ramma damma on the streets
and if it ain’t enough
domestic life was rough, silly dreams of making up
for my nasty defect
I wouldn’t be me as far as I can reflect, I’ve always tried to use my intellect on them
only if they be steppin’ on my sensitive toes, I have em askin
why you castin’ illness to your foes?
I come quick with the black tetrahydron force of the fallen one
ain’t no light left to be shone on your twisted brains, trying to decipher my gains
man, they can’t maintain so
I never ask for more than I can contribute to the game
so I won’t have no debts
and can surely live
the life of a free person, life is handsome
so where the go getters at?
I think they haven’t arrived yet still I manage to have
them walking side by side with me
as I keep them pleasant company
even tho I let them know I’m the lonesome black panther, child of the wilder-ness
I tell them that

REV
you’ll be able to get to what’s underneath
you’ll be able to reach to what’s above
even if they never show love
you’ll be able to reach it (x2)
