    don't you wanna end up with this mister?
    he is just being nice with his kisses and he
    thinks you're not one of the smart ones
    (say it, s-say it!)
    doesn't seem like you want that kind of honey, honey

    an isle, a bright shining isle
    stands forever, alone in the sea
    of rock and of sand and grass
    and shale, the isle bereft of trees

    small. a speck in the wide blue sea
    'tis the last of all the land
    a dweller upon our lonesome isle
    the last, lonely man?

    by the gods he is there to never leave
    to remain all his life
    his punishment for evermore
    to attend the eternal light

    the lighthouse, tall and brilliant white
    which stands at the end of the world
    protecting ships and sailors too
    from rock they could be hurled

    yet nothing comes and nothing goes
    'cept the bright blue sea
    which stretches near and far away
    'tis all our man can see

    though, one day, up high on rock
    a bird did perch and cry
    an albatross, he shot a glance
    and wondered deeply, why?

    could it be a watcher sent?
    a curse sent from the gods
    who sits and cries and stares at him
    the life that they have robbed

    each year it comes to watch over him
    the creature from above
    not a curse but a reminder of
    the woman that he loved

    oh weary night, under stars
    he'd lay and gaze
    up towards the moon and stars
    the suns dying haze

    time and again, Orion's light
    filled our man with joy
    within the belt, he'd see his love
    remembering her voice

    the twinkle from the stars above
    bled peace into his heart
    as long as she looks down on him
    he knows they'll never part

    one day good, one day bad
    the madness, the heat, the sun
    out to sea, he spies upon land
    his beloved Albion

    cliffs of white and trees of green
    children run and play
    "my home land" he cries and weeps
    why so far away?

    eyes sore and red. filled with tears
    he runs towards the sea
    to risk his life, a worthy cause
    for home he would be

    into the sea, deep and blue
    the waters wash him clean
    awake. he screams. cold with sweat
    and Albion a dream

    such is life upon the isle
    of torment and woe
    one day good. one day bad
    and some days, even hope

    the light at the end of the world
    burns bright for mile and mile
    yet tends the man, its golden glow
    in misery all the while?

    for fifty years he stands and waits
    atop the light, alone
    looking down upon his isle
    the gods have made his home

    the watcher at the end of the world
    through misery does defile
    remembers back to that single night
    and allows a tiny smile

    his sacrifice was not so great
    he insists upon the world
    again he would crime, again he would pay
    for one moment with the girl

    her hair, long and black it shone
    the dark, beauty of her eyes
    olive skin and warm embrace
    her memory never dies

    'twas years ago, he remembers clear
    the life they once did live
    endless love and lust for life
    they promised each would give

    alas, such love and laughter too
    was short as panting breath
    for one dark night, her soul was kissed
    by the shade of death

    agony, like none before
    was suffered by our man
    who tends the light now, burning bright
    on the very last of land

    anger raged and misery too
    like nothing ever before
    he cursed the gods and man and life
    and at his heart he tore

    a deity felt sympathy
    and threw our man a light
    "your woman you may see again
    for a single night

    but think hard and well young man
    there is a price to pay
    to tend the light at the end of the world
    is where you must stay

    away from man and life and love
    alone you will be
    on a tiny isle. a bright shining isle
    in the middle of the sea"

    "i'll tend the light, for one more night
    with the woman whom i love"
    screamed the man, with tearful eyes
    to the deity above

    and so it was that very night
    his lover did return
    to his arms and to their bed
    together they did turn

    in deepest love and lust and passion
    entwined they did fall
    lost within each other's arms
    they danced in lover's ball

    long was the night filled with love
    for them the world was done
    awoke he did to brightest light
    his woman and life had gone

    to his feet he leapt. to the sea he looked
    to the lighthouse on the stone
    the price is paid and from now on
    he lives forever alone

    fifty years have passed since then
    and not a soul has he seen
    but his woman lives with him still
    in every single dream

    'tis sad to hear how young love has died
    to know that, alone, someone has cried
    but memories are ours to keep
    to live them again, in our sleep

    burning on just like a match
    you strike to incinerate
    the lives of everyone you knew
    and what's the worst you take
    from every heart you break?
    and like the blade you stain
    i've been holding on tonight

    you live for times of solace
    within a sign there's a promise
    don't lose all faith cause you shake at night
    it's in the art of the process

    We-
    organic images
    dissolving earth

    Our future children
    sure at us unfixed
    from a residence of stars
    in their sidereal ships
    ho sailing beyond within

    Their eyes
    black in kingdoms of gold
    like the rocks of this desert
    where we wander in circles
    tails up the ass of time

    And our vision
    goes backwards
    the traces we see
    after something
    ot even existing
    beyond the prints

    All dreams end here
    where our cries began
    resounding to museums
    of a world we believed
    neverending

    And we stop
    exhausted
    beginning
    not again

    And the panic
    like the light
    of some star
    exploding

    Flashing in black holes of not knowing
    if we ever made a away out of this mud

    waiting by the stairs - waiting by the stairs
    waiting i despair - waiting i despair

    our whole life is a dark room.
    one. big. dark. room

    somehow i ended up here in the inbetween
    where there is always the comfort of knowing i'll never be seen
    when i fall
    when i fall
    i wait for just one touch
    and i fall

    an exit to eternal summer slacking
    Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
    To seize everything you ever wanted…One moment
    Would you capture it or just let it slip?

    His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
    There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
    He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
    To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
    What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
    He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
    He's chokin, how everybody's jokin now
    The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!
    Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity
    Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
    He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy
    Is he? No
    He won't have it , he knows his whole back city's ropes
    It don't matter, he's dope
    He knows that, but he's broke
    He's so stacked that he knows
    When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
    Back to the lab again yo
    This whole rap shit
    He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him

    You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
    You own it, you better never let it go
    You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
    This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo
    The soul's escaping, through this hole that it's gaping
    This world is mine for the taking
    Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
    A normal life is borin, but superstardom's close to post mortar
    It only grows harder, only grows hotter
    He blows its all over, these hoes is all on him
    Coast to coast shows, he's know as the globetrotter
    Lonely roads, God only knows
    He's grown farther from home, he's no father
    He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
    But hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water
    These ho's don't want him no mo, he's cold product
    They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
    He nose dove and sold nada
    So the soap opera is told and unfolds
    I suppose it's old potna, but the beat goes on
    Da da dum da dum da da

    No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
    Tear this mothafuckin roof off like 2 dogs caged
    I was playin in the beginnin, the mood all changed
    I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
    But I kept rhymin and stepwritin the next cypher
    Best believe somebody's payin the pied piper
    All the pain inside amplified by the fact
    That I can't get by with my 9 to 5
    And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
    Cuz man, these goddam food stamps don't buy diapers
    And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
    And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder
    Tryin to feed and water my seed, plus
    Teeter totter, caught up between bein a father and a prima donna
    Baby mama drama's screamin on and
    Too much for me to wanna
    Stay in one spot, another day of monotomy
    Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail
    I've got to formulate a plot fore I end up in jail or shot
    Success is my only mothafuckin option, failure's not
    Mom, I love you, but this trailer has got to go
    I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
    So here I go is my shot.
    Feet fail me not cuz maybe the only opportunity that I got

    You can do anything you set your mind to
