[Chorus]

 

There’s no reason for the drive-bys or knife-fights at midnight

If we’re all rich and fly; profits standing sky-high

  It just takes a little time; and a hundred pounds of grind

Have Bugatti money waiting when they’re old enough to drive

 

It’s time that we applied all the lessons we’ve derived

A generation of kids back to playing outside

Not concerned with drone strikes or the media’s lying

Let em strive and take pride as their communities thrive

 

[Verse 1]

Criminal-minded; like Madoff was behind it

Unwind with sidewinders while inhabiting the skies

Disguised by environments that are lined with surprises

Inclined to find out what the most recent lie is

 

Someone remind me again just what the grand prize is?

Arm wrestle Craig Titus, and develop better vices

Might be whiter than a box of Uncle Ben’s white rice is

But the heart should be admired and regarded as priceless

If I’m in the right climate; and I expertly time it

Pen out sixteen lines; and I’ll do my best to rhyme it

The mind state I’m in; it goes far past designing

If you find a diamond mine it; or a bargain, go buy it

If your people mean the world; doesn’t matter what the price is

Divisiveness is driving us to timed bids and life, kid

Spiteful’s not the right way; if you hope to be admired

Cops swinging Mag-Lights; rivals blast on-sight

 

[Chorus]

 

There’s no reason for the drive-bys or knife-fights at midnight

If we’re all rich and fly; profits standing sky-high

  It just takes a little time; and a hundred pounds of grind

Have Bugatti money waiting when they’re old enough to drive

 

It’s time that we applied all the lessons we’ve derived

A generation of kids back to playing outside

Not concerned with drone strikes or the media’s lying

Let em strive and take pride as their communities thrive

 

[Verse 2]

A comedian trapped in an artist’s body writing

Moonlighting for three nights; as the Punisher’s driver

The car doors ajar; Uzis hanging out the side

Firing wildly at the sidewalk and people passing by it

No need for hiding; I don’t care if I die trying

But put a mask on my face like a scuba-type diver

Cause privacy and niceness disappear like the night is

A survivor with pride; I still got the gun license

 

Unsigned and unrefined; after studio time

Couple labels said goodbye; didn’t sit around crying

The royalty art and bars; couldn’t make em see the tie-in

Lines timeless like a pocket watch that never stopped trying

 While I’m on the track vibing; how foul is Joe Biden?

Eyes black, like a demon’s in the back of his skull hiding

Probably takes it out at night when he’s shampooing and drying

Cosigning legislature meant for bounding and tying

 

[Chorus]

 

There’s no reason for the drive-bys or knife-fights at midnight

If we’re all rich and fly; profits standing sky-high

  It just takes a little time; and a hundred pounds of grind

Have Bugatti money waiting when they’re old enough to drive

It’s time that we applied all the lessons we’ve derived

A generation of kids back to playing outside

Not concerned with drone strikes or the media’s lying

Let em strive and take pride as their communities thrive

 

In a trance-like state that I don’t even understand

Like George Carlin himself was guiding my writing hand

The lifespan’s expired; on the assault rifle ban

It hasn’t stopped Senator Feinstein from trying it again

[Verse 3]

The noose and guillotine both used to treat treason

Robots are invading; seeing evil for no reason

Seeking freedom from the demons; and the secret allegiances

The voice doesn’t matter; hear the words I’m speaking

The world stinks of diseases; I can see its face leaking

Jesus please, give me strength; line it up again and squeeze it

Call up your connect; cause I might need to see em

Keep the meeting a secret; like a federal subpoena

If a problem arises, I’ll be the first to greet it

Meet it face-to-face; take its breakfast and eat it

On a Phillee Nate beat; turn it up and repeat it

Can’t sing, but pretty sure that the game still needs it

More cheese than a man with the bird flu sneezing

Jewelry stores happy; cause you know they just seen him

Vacations Norwegian; let the credit card freeze em

Four Seasons; only reason to withdraw for the evening
