Back when Mark Walberg was Marky Mark this is how we would make the party start
Take a shot of Bicardi Dark and then follow it up with some hardcore rock
After a while of this we'll all be seein' in threes
Thinkin' the walls are converging on thee you'll hear a shout from across the room
It will be your best bud askin for some more of your shrooms
As the nights pass by ya'll start wonderin why you choose this life
instead of livin' fly then that voice in your head will say
"Boy, you sure fucked up" and they only thing you can say is
Yeah ya may be right but, but I know i am out there like a light
Guideing people to whats strong and right tellin' them not to live in fright
Cause its gonna be alright, and besides there is no time to fight
We all gotta live it up tonight if we don't we will be lettin ourselves down
Lettin the crown fall, letting that dumb doll down
He'll be thinkin he has won, but deep down inside we still know we're havin fun
Because we know not to let these nights just pass away
But at the same time you just can't live for today, ya gotta find that balance
Between work and play, that makes this crazy world go 'round
from day to day but at the end of it all ya just can't say
that it was an easy choice to live like this, sure its perfect in every way
But everyone needs some tough times in their life, they might be hard
and painful to all but they teach us how to be strong and how to stand tall
because without these experiences we'll never know why poeple have to die, why mommy and daddy had to say bye-bye, why people think they are superior to you, and why you have to lead a life that you choose.
In reality, as im looking back, thats the most important fact
If you let people tell how to live your life you'll just end up stuck in the back
You could scream your lungs out as loud as you pleased but no one would hear
ya cause there all listen to that one man standing up on that stand, comanding the crowd to follow his plan.
Since your in the back you'll be thinkin he's evil, but his closet friends and companions think he's a hero. 
Deep inside you know you wanna be him
But the truth outside says ya aint gonna do it
Cause you lost all your diginaty when you fell for this man's lies
of power, populairty, and pride.  He tricked us all into beileving that were his friends.  But at the end of it all, after he pushed us of the cliff and we braced for the big fall.  A thought crossed our minds.
We realized, but it was to late, that this man was tryin to make us the same.
So he could be the only one to have glory and fame.
What surprised us the most was that everyone fell to this strange host.
Just to the hollow promise of being popular
Is that all that matters in these dark days?
People will try anything to have there name burn in flames
But no one realizes at the end, we are who we are and that could never change
But out there, we have idiots that every day think they are better then everyone
else just cause they're friends with Mary Jane or maybe they just got game.
No one sees that the best people to be ain't those crazy guy's with weed
There the ones that knows whats wrong and right, when to defend their rights, and how to stand strong against all in this world that is wrong.


And the moral of this story is simple and yet people still let it pass by
So thats why im sittin here thinkin that your're hearin' this and wondering why
I wrote this in the first place, and wasted all my time, well that answer is simple, its all in a line, a line thats is held sacred to many in our time
Because they know its importance, and that this is not a childish ryhme
and that this has substance, a meaning, and its alive.
It guides their lives to viture and pride.
