lyrics

(King Dylan)
We were just ...
Small kids with Wide eyes and Big dreams
High fives for Tie Dyes with ripped jeans
play fights and bike rides and little leagues
we were alive without Wi Fi or big screens
we chose happiness and love over paychecks
we paid the price a hundred times, we had to break necks
broken backs, broken hearts, but we're okay, gents!
broken rides, broken dreams, but we've stayed friends
some days I drink and I may seem a little bitter
I won't quit but I'll admit it I have never been a winner
but we get together, we have dinner, and remember
that we're just a bunch of simple men, singing lynyrd Skynyrd
"You'll find a woman, and you'll find love (You'll find love! you'll find love!)
and don't forget son, there is a someone up above"


we have holes in our socks
we're all broke and hate our jobs
let's touch the sky
and live among the stars

we have days we didn't eat
We live our dreams we never sleep
let's touch the sky

(Buttnz)
Mirror, mirror mirror mirror on the wall
who's the most beautiful emcee of all
I can't keep on ignoring the call
guess I just took 6 years off
Whatcha mean white men can't jump?
Lift my foot up, down come stomp
when the switch gets flipped and this bitch lifts off
and the business gets what the business wants
At the top of this world it's anomolous
the more we're hot the more we wanna be autonomous
the more we got the more we wanna be anonymous
the more we're not the more the paparazzi follows us
so what's the problem this cause is affecting us
of course we didn't really gawk at the consequences
I can't stop, touch the sky, like the God's above us
I'm Superman and Hip Hop's my Metropolis

(GQ)
Let us touch the sky, so we'll never die,
never live a lie, give up what we really love for a bigger piece of the pie,
but no, never us, we're living for the rush
of being up on the stage, & touring the world on a bus,
I went bankrupt yup and I then said so what,
because my life all fell apart while i was doing what I love,
I don't need to die with lots of money on my grave
Just as long as the world lives to talk about my face,
Sometimes you don't know what you got until it's gone,
I never lost music but I bleed it all day long,
then I turn my sorrow into songs,
Remember '94 we put that 2pac tape on,
I got my reasons, I walk the lonely road
an all I ever wanted was someone to hold me close,
I keep falling down (farther/father) when I try to stand,
I shed a tear every time I hear Simple Man.

CHORUS

(MC Mossberg)
Lengthy days blend away I pace myself in this expensive space
everything I make wastes away and it's a waste an extensive chase
and we're eventually paid but not before friendships are made
we all relate to a treacherous fate and put heads together
and make something that you can't desecrate cuz it remains
as long as man will persist, still changing your views
after I cash in my chips, so many passionless puppets
advance in the biz when the suits put ads on the back of our disc
I'm trapped in the system, I'm lashed in the pit
I reach for the sky and grabbing a handfuls of shit
so what's the answer to this, I think it's having a wish then
infecting the listeners til it crashes the system
we're backing the victim and crushing The Man
so Ball up your fists, Up with your hands!
