Kodak Black – I Be On The Way Lyrics

[Chorus: Khalid]
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day
I’ll be all day
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way

[Verse 1: Kodak Black]
Aye I’m booted up out my mup
I’m on my way, I burned the clutch though
I got a lot to tell ya but right now I just wanna fuck though
I love you from the bottom of my heart but bae I’m cutthroat
That pussy good but tonight I wanna stick it in yo’ butt though
I say what I want when I wanna say it, I’m blunt baby
I mixed the KK with the cookie, stuffed it in my blunt
In the cell with a razor blade in my mat
I don’t shave but I hid the razor in my bunk
Pull up and I don’t honk
Hop out then I dump
My steering wheel on the right, it’s enough room in the trunk
I ain’t gon’ bump the horn or hit the horn when I pull up in yo’ front
Hit it on the porch or in the Porsche, kick it then I punt
[Chorus: Khalid]
Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way

You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night

You can meet me in five

Bag a nigga ass and do the dash, yeah, need for speed
Layin’ on yo’ ass, I’m in yo’ grass, you gon’ need to retreat
Sniper Gang, you think I’m playin’ all them games, you gon’ need retreat
I love you, we can’t get too deep
I skeet before I go to sleep
We can’t lay up in the sheets
Skeet, go back to the streets
Go back to the streets, you don’t belong to me
Yo’ heart in the streets, it don’t belong to me
Let yo’ soul bleed, pour it on the beat
Yo’ heart in the streets, ya soul belong to me

You can meet me in five

Put it in drive, I’ll be outside
I be on the way
I be on the way
You can meet me in five
I’ll be all night
I’ll be all day

Joey Bada$$ – 80 Blocks Lyrics

I really don’t want to do them again. [Intro]
“I mean the reason they call him ‘Crazy Joe’ he goes off once in a while. Shots of the expresso
Gettin’ star bucks been the basic manifesto
I’m up early mornin’, breakin’ fast through the thresholds (uh-huh)
They tell I’ma wear myself out, but that’s the dress code (swag)
Unlock the swag and nigga let’s go
We securin’ bags, you niggas insecure and mad
One hundred thirty on the dash, that’s if my nigga Lex drove
Keep the heat, the stash, if you got
Usually we positive, just tryna stay blessed though
I’d rather to be safe, never know what to expect yo
In the streets, we livin’ in, niggas invidious, serious
And ’cause of this, inside of me, kept hidden, it’s hideous (uh)
And that’s ugly truth, I’m speakin’ from my troubled youth
To whom I try to give a mental boost when I’m in the booth
Been through the struggle, made it out, I’m the livin’ proof
I took the pain like I pull it from my wisdom tooth (nigga)
[Interlude]
“We’re still surviving, you know we took our bruises and we came out. Uhh, but he’s the type of guy you can go to and talk to, you know? But, like if I do them, like in the past, I don’t go around bragging ‘I done this, I done that,’ to myself so nobody knows about it. We survived, we here, we got this, which I think is out of sight”
[Verse 2: Chuck Strangers]
First me and Robi break up
Now every day I wake up, with more bullshit as I arrive to the pulpit
Pro Era apostle (preach), nigga droppin’ gospels
Chucky be a reverend, Psalm 47
God is the king of all on earth
But after him know that the Era is first (know that)
Know it’s all about knowin’ your worth
Thank Christ for savin’ my life today
Know I have the right of way
I’m blessed to see a brighter day (blessed)
Keep me away from ruthless
You can teach a man a lesson, but don’t make him feel stupid
Put me on, don’t put me down, my g
We all out here just tryna be
Fine lines between egos and insecurities
You ain’t less of a man if you don’t squeeze (if you don’t squeeze, don’t squeeze)
You not necessarily a man if you do
Chalk it up to human nature, ’cause it’s just what men do (it’s just what men do)
Self-destruct with no fucks, all of to give up
I’m Chuck, Strangers
[Outro]
“And like I see a whole new future opening up for me and like I really don’t want to do all the things I’ve done over the years before. And when nobody knows, word don’t get out and you don’t get busted.” ‘Uhh Joey, look these guys are doin’ somethin’ they have no reason to be doin’, I mean, what’s goin’ on here?’
Joey, he’d go out there and talk to ’em and they’ll listen, suddenly Joe will go crazy, you know?”
[Verse 1: Joey Bada$$]

What’s life like now?

Son Lux – Labor Lyrics

[Refrain 1]
Come to life, my hungry arms are begging you
But what more can you do? [Chorus]
Labor reveal
Before our eyes, into our ears
Unfurl with light
The stars around us disappear
Just what is torn
What comes alive inside of us
[Chorus]
Labor reveal
Before our eyes, into our ears
Unfurl with light
The stars around us disappear
Just what is torn
What comes to life inside of us
[Refrain 2]
Come to, come to, come to life, come to [Verse]
I will break with you
For your body to be freed
Not pleased
Take the weight of you
For your gravity to be erased
Just a phantom muse
What was the form, the flesh, the feet, the face?

Tory Lanez – March 2nd Lyrics

[Verse]
Second cycle, the kid is movin’ like Billy Idol
With some past due W’s that I’m still entitled
City love me I treat it like it’s a bridal
Tux black as the strap I’m using to hit the rival
Last album was great, but I know this one is greater
I made it this far as a great tastemaker without a spread from Complex and them covers that come in from FADER
I’m at tables with mans you love it
Fuck it, I made it from buckets
Slept in the rugged seats of a Civic
To walking in the city and niggas screaming I did it
I spit this shit from way back for ’em
This for niggas that told me, “I’ll come back” but never came back for ’em
Loyal to them so I wait back for ’em like they my niggas
Knowin’ they isn’t, these niggas so insufficient
When we was both dealing, I used to throw in the pigeon
I guess, that mean nothing when niggas start coexisting
I done lost some good girls and niggas that I would cope with
Been backstabbed by niggas I used to smoke with
As far as rap I’m not the one to toe-to-toe with or go at it blow for blow with the silly shit no for no with
Money on the line, its money all on my mind
Calculating this vision, I sum it up for the grind
I promise when I got it I’d fuck it up for the times
Put 20k on the tab and buss it up every time, you get me? In a Bentley smokin’ on a fat 20, jealous niggas don’t offend me, Dior dripped in the Fendi
I do it for the family OGs that never sent me on mission when I was down to put clip in and leave it empty and work
I ain’t trippin’ ’bout who got at me and dissed
I’m blessed, when I think about who shot at me and missed
I came from real situations
Niggas got clapped for little insinuations, time and impatience
Been grindin’, finding my way in so much bros like the Wayans
Sometime it weigh me down whenever they try weigh in
In the day out, in the day in, shooters on say when
Niggas got clapped before the day end
The city I come from, taught me that there’s nothing to run from
It taught me get my money in lump sums
So ’til that day, still at war, I’m still at pay
Never change boy, we still that way
It’s young Fargo

Julia Michaels – Are You Lyrics

Are you? Mmm…
[Pre-Chorus]
Up and down in your direction
I keep lookin’
Up and down in your direction
And I feel you watchin’ too
[Chorus]
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you openin’ doors to your feelings? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? [Bridge]
Now I wanna try somethin’
My subconscious goes
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (haha, yeah)
And yours goes
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (I like that)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (all together) (okay)
Ooh! Are you? Are you? [Verse 2]
I’ll lasso you into my dimension
You’ll pull me into your universe
Let’s see who can handle all the tension
Who’s getting it first? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? [Verse 1]
Hold onto my heartbeat like you mean it
‘Cause there’s something too real to let it slide
If you gotta go, we can achieve it
You better believe it, so do I
I don’t need your words to get me goin’
Let your body language set the tone
Save all your emotions for the motion
Don’t make me go at this alone
[Pre-Chorus]
Up and down in your direction
I keep lookin’
Up and down in your direction
And I feel you watchin’ too
[Chorus]
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’? Are you? Are you openin’ doors to your feelings? Are you? [Chorus]
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you openin’ doors to your feelings? Are you? Are you? Ooh, it’s gettin’ so hot in here, ooh
I keep makin’ it crystal clear, ooh
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you? Ooh, it’s gettin’ so hot in here, ooh
I keep makin’ it crystal clear, ooh
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’? Are you? Are you? Ooh, it’s gettin’ so hot in here, ooh (gettin’ so hot)
I keep makin’ it crystal clear, ooh (keep makin’ it)
Are you thinkin’ the same thing I’m thinkin’?

Skizzy Mars – American Dream Lyrics

Jordan
Table dancing in South Hampton
Use the wine glasses for dirty fantas
We coolin’ out in the whip and I done damn near smashed every girl on my list
KD at the three, Djokovic with the racket
Phelps in the pool, I’m like Speith at the masters
God damn girl you know you a bad bitch
God damn girl you know I’m a savage
[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them
[Bridge]
Another day in the U.S.A
Just another day in America
Kids from my hood look up to the drug dealers
The system set us up for failure
I just wanna make enough to pay dividends
Then invest in black businesses
They teach us to hate what we see in the mirror
But it can’t break our spirit
[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them [Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them
[Verse 1]
Look at them
Uh
How to make it in America
Real nigga, day one, ain’t a lot of us
Mom worked two jobs, it was hard for us
Me and sis made it out, now she proud of us
They ain’t teach me how to rap in those private schools
Wasn’t like my rich friends, had a lot to lose
Less money, less options, lot of rules
So when that first deal came it was opportune
And shawty got potential, I scout that
She say she in love, but I doubt that
Maybe it’s the drugs or the clout
I get love in the north, I get love in the south, yeah
Shawty claim she a feminist and her ex man feminine
God damn girl you know that he average
God damn girl you know I’m a savage
[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them
[Verse 2]
New money
Now I’m in the Benz truck with a new honey
Yeah, they said I wouldn’t make it
I’m like, “You funny”
Laughing at my haters like, “You dummies”
The night is young, girl what can you do for me? Six figures, five shows, big ballin’
Look, I’m very important
I took a break, had some things I had to get sorted
I might retire in my prime like I’m M.

MGMT – One Thing Left to Try Lyrics

(Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to keep us alive? Wishing I’d done something
More than what’s required
To last until the sunset
No, I don’t wanna die
Thinking that I’m dreaming
There’s one thing left to try
If you want to change your life
Today I left those thoughts behind, behind
Over and over, you die just to feel alive
The only way to get rid of the feeling
You have to draw the line
And remember there’s more than you’re seeing
Decide
Do you want to keep us alive? (Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to feel alive? One thing left to try
See if you can make it
Before you choose the night
And the silence overtakes you
If you looked into the fire
And you had that conversation
Then there’s one thing left to try
If you want to save your life
Fear is his name but his friends still call him God
Again and again the thought remains
(The only way to get rid of the feeling)
I don’t wanna die! Do you want to feel alive? (Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to feel alive? (Fun is over tonight)
Do you want to keep us alive? Do you want to feel alive? Do you want to keep us alive? (Fun is over tonight)
(There’s one thing left to try)
(There’s one thing left to try)

MGMT – James Lyrics

[Verse 1]
James
If you heed the call
And you go outside, and wander off
Then home is there
Wherever you will make it
You can always say, “Who’s laughing now?”
[Verse 2]
James
If you need a friend
Come right over
Don’t even knock
And I’ll be home
The door is always open
And we both can say, “Who’s laughing now?”
[Chorus]
Oh James
My little doll
You just go outside and you call
Oh James
Oh you’re never too far off
[Instrumental Bridge]
[Chorus]
Oh James
My little doll
You just go outside and you call
Oh James
No, you’re never too far off
[Verse 3]
If your fire’s out
There’s no need to shout
I’m always home
And walk on in
I’ll make you tea and breakfast
And we both can say, “Who’s laughing now?”
[Outro]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
No, you’re never too far off (James)
No, you’re never too far off

Tips for dealing with ants invading your house

Join the club. External Link:

Wipe an ant trail off with an acidic cleaner to make them lose their way
Deploy acid and gap fillerAnts do not like acidic things, so using lemon or vinegar to clean your benches can put them off.The insects leave a chemical trail behind when they find a food or water source to tell others where to go.Wipe away an ant trail with something like lemon juice to break the chain.Filling any holes you find that are letting ants get into your home will ease your problems also.Chalk up a barrier and lay baitsAnts tend not to like chalky substances, such as actual chalk, baby powder or baking powder.A line of powder can stop them from entering your home.But killing off a nest is the only way to get rid of them entirely. Got an ant problem? it could be a couple of years [to get rid of ants],” Mr Goodfellow said.”A lot of people will persist with baits then eventually they’ll call the pest control guy or girl.” If having ants in your house is really bugging you, we’ve got some tips on how to keep them at bay.Richard Goodfellow runs a pest control business in Hobart and said summer was boomtime for ants.He said numbers had been particularly bad this year.

You can make your own ant bait with borax mixed with sugar or syrup. External Link:

Ants can be a problem no matter where in Australia you live
“I think mainly because of the dry weather, it’s extra hot,” he told Helen Shield on ABC Radio Hobart.”With a little bit of rain they’ll flare up and start coming inside.”Ants are looking for two things in your home: food and water.”Toilets, bathrooms are often areas where you’ll get a lot of ants,” Mr Goodfellow said.”A bit of water in your kitchen or syrups, they’ll soon track inside to it.”Even the cleanest of houses can have ant issues.”I go to houses where there’s cupboards that are spotless and there’s ants for some reason going in there,” Mr Goodfellow said.Of course there are plenty of ant baits and sprays on the market, but there are also natural products you can use to at least reduce the number of ants walking across your benchtops.Remove ant-tempting foodsAnts are drawn to sugary and fatty foods.Keep your syrups, sugars and anything that attracts ants in airtight containers or put them in the fridge.Create a moat of water around pet food bowls so the ants cannot cross the water to get to the food.Put outside food bowls away from the house and only feed your pet what it can eat in one go. (Supplied: Hailey Renault)
If you do not want to use commercial baits and chemicals, mixing borax with sugar or syrups can do the job.The ants will carry off the sugary treat back to the nest where the borax will kill the ants.If you find a nest in your yard, pouring boiling water on it can also kill a lot of ants, but beware the nests can be very deep and the water might not get through it all.The nests can hold tens of thousands of ants and there can be multiple nests.”Some houses, if they’re nested in a wall cavity …

Retro roller skating an all-ages throwback to the heady days of disco

“I just skate, that’s it,” she said, “Nothing special.”Ms Sikora said she enjoyed the fast-paced, noisy atmosphere at the rink as well as the company.”I really like watching the younger kids enjoy it. Sadly her local rink closed in the 1990s and never reopened.However, this summer Ms Sikora has been reliving childhood moments by skating in the evenings at the Huskisson Carnival on the shores of Jervis Bay near Nowra in New South Wales, where Mr Harvey set up his portable rink.She said she had been surprised at how quickly she learned again, but still can’t do more than just “around and around”.

Now, courtesy of Mr Harvey and others, it’s experiencing yet another comeback — this time as “retro roller skating”.Mr Harvey, who travels regional Australia with his mobile skating rink, believes people love ’80s music and flashing lights.”It’s a bit of a trip down memory lane,” Mr Harvey said.”It takes them a few minutes to get back on it, but all I ever hear is that it comes rushing back.” Skating for fun As a child Liz Sikora went roller skating with her family regularly.

Like Ms Sikora, Allan Barraclough is also happy going to the rink alone.Mr Barraclough said he felt comfortable asking for help.”I was looking at the ground a lot when I started doing it and I was told that one of the things I should do is look in the distance because I’ll be able to balance better.

So tips like that are helpful,” Mr Barraclough said.Increasing spatial awareness and balanceHe said he knew his mates were laughing at him but didn’t mind because at 60 he was learning something new.”My surfing fitness had dropped right off, but I went out the other day and I felt more together on my board as a result of my time roller skating,” he said.And for those who love a bit of action with their skating, there’s roller derby.

Betty Batemen, aka Betty Doom, is in her 20s and loves the high-octane activity because it is exercise “without feeling like exercise”.”It’s more of a fun thing than an exercise thing,” Ms Bateman said.She said roller derby could get fairly aggressive.”There are some pretty solid rules that you have to adhere to which basically help people to be safe,” Ms Bateman said. Roller skating is the act of travelling across smooth surfaces while wearing wheels and, just for the record, it comes in two forms.Whether you choose to wear roller skates or inline skates depends mostly on your age.John Harvey, a small businessman who has skated all his life, assists in the running of an ice skating rink in Sydney and tours the regions with a portable retro roller rink.He reckons that anyone under the age of about 16 would prefer inline skates because “they’ve all been brought up on scooters with two wheels, so they are used to the property of balance”. “But anyone who was skating in roller discos on a Friday night in the ’70s and ’80s, they are on roller skates,” Mr Harvey said.Music and flashing lightsHistory records the first use of a roller skate way back in 1743 as part of a London stage performance.But it really took off as a hobby 200 years later in the 1930s before picking up again in the early 1960s and then becoming popular again with the introduction of the polyurethane wheels for disco extravaganza events in the glitzy 1970s.
