Not Just Out-There

-

The whole world

It's so dark

This whole time

Thought it was all mine

Could you rap up my thoughts for me?

I feel a flow comin' on

I've been screamin'

But I ain't no demon

I've been seein'

What to love means anything?

Out of peace

Out of griefe

No time left to say "goodbye" to me

You're gonna have

To say it amongs yourselves

I'll get well

And we'll all know what to feel

When the words rhyme the deal

Just cold harded anger

Wets the dry land

But you already know

I became a man

-

The whole world is over

And we're all growing older

And soon we will be dead

And when this love is over

And nobodies comin' over

How great will be our deaths?

-

I couldn't ask too much of God

I know not "at all" what could

__still go on

But I could pick myself up and laugh

Knowing we are going to fall

-

Drink with me

I know nothing

And nothing knows me

I came to capoture my memory

Of anything I can find

Hope to God, I didn't go blind yet

I don't wanna be dead

But that's whole I'll be

And when I calm down

I'll be sittin' under a tree

Held down

Tired

And not around

Losing myself so harshly

Lettin' go

Who has my money now?

It's not me

Blessedly hold me down

I don't wann escape

Thee only way around

But drive me to the deepest depths

Of insanity

__and I'll never know why

__no, I'll never know why

__I will close my mind

__and I

__Will start

__to feel ev'rything instead

__maybe it'll go to my head

__maybe

__or maybe I'm just too messed up

The world is over

And we are growing older

And soon we will be dead

And when this love is over

And nobodies comin' over

How great will be our deaths?

-

I couldn't ask too much of God

I know not "at all" what could

__still go on

But I could pick myself up and laugh

Knowing we are going to fall

Sentences

Fall out of line

Marches to the rescue

Drops like dead flies

A hurtful intro scoundrel

Upbeats the meaningless cry

I ain't up

Been down for all I know

I ain't about to gain my portion

Of my true share, just yet

But put it in my heart

Let it stir me up

Leave it out of bounds

Let's not all

Forget lunch

A lot like a shark of loans

It's what time I have left

That makes me old

But could it be that way?

Can it be candy?

Perhaps when you look

It's more than just books

-

The whole world is over

(We ain't a part of it)

And we are growing older

(We have no future soon)

And soon we will be dead

(Bullets won't be the cause of it)

And when love is over

(And they're still slangin' on the corner)

How great will be ourt deaths?

(Put the thoughts out of your heads)

-

I couldn't ask too much of God

(Yet He wan'ts me to ask a lot)

I know not "at all" what could

__still go on

(Land the space ship here

__one more time)

But I could pick myself up and laugh

(Maybe tell the world when you can)

Knowing we are going to fall

(Maybe that's "nothing at all")
