XXXTENTACION – God Bless The Dead Lyrics

Nah, couldn’t see it
Scarface, King of New York, I want to be it
Rap was secondary, money was necessary
Until I got incarcerated–kinda scary
C74-Mark 8 set me straight
Not able to move behind the great steel gate
Time to contemplate, damn, where did I fail? I’d rather sing about the same things that we claim
Such is bashful, but niggas like the task force
Mobbin’ on the streets and robbin’ stores in ski masks, bruh
Niggas ask for peace in a riot and bring violence
‘Cause it’s a game of cat and mouse and you gon’ bleed silent
What’s the justice in sayin’ fuck it and grab the pump? Then kill a woman with many children makes you a chump
Look at all the stores you wreckin’, nigga I reckon
Think about the people who own it for about a second
I know you got your problems, but brother, they got theirs
This is not a game, quit violence and grow a pair
But yo, you’d rather hear me say, “Fuck black prejudice!”
“Let’s murder different races, grow hatred, and form irrelevant!”
Views and etcetera, knives thrown
Damage ’em, lives blown, oblivion hole cold, oblivious
I won’t dare say that you should stop the fuckin’ ignorance
Murder ops, killin’ shit, I’d enjoy the thrill of it
Bath in blood of officers, different corpses, offin’ ’em
Auction ’em, don’t you bark at ’em
Murder ’em, never heard of ’em
[Verse 2 – Notorious B.I.G.]
Now I’m thirteen, smoking blunts, making cream
On the drug scene, fuck a football team:
Risking ruptured spleens by the age of sixteen
Hearing the coach scream ain’t my lifetime dream! All the money I stacked was all the money for bail
[Verse 3 – 2Pac]
God bless the dead and buried, nigga, don’t worry
If you see God first, tell him shit got worse
I ain’t mad, I know you representin’ the crew
And I can picture you in heaven with a blunt and a brew
Fuck the world, pain was a part of the game
If you a baller, money went as quick as it came
My role models gone or they locked in the pen
Straight hustlers caught up in the whirlwind
The other day I thought I seen my homeboy Biggy
Sayin’ shit don’t stop, nigga, no pity
We all hoods and all we ever had was dreams
Money makin’ motherfuckers plot scandalous schemes
In the gutter you learn to have a criminal mind
I was addicted to tryin’, never meant to do time
My epitaph will read “was the last of G’s”
Kicked the shit to make the white man bleed
God bless the dead Remix By DJ FORGOTTEN
[Verse 1 – XXXTENTACION]
You ever seen a nigga hung with a gold chain? I mean I want to blow up, stack my dough up
So school I didn’t show up, it fucked my flow up
Mom said that I should grow up and check myself
Before I wreck myself, disrespect myself
Put the drugs on the shelf?

Madonna – Hold Tight (Demo #3) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
A million miles later
We walked through the valley of the darkest night
We made it through the fire
Scarred and we’re bruised, but our hearts will guide us
Together, I know our love’s gonna last forever
We’re gonna be alright tonight
[Pre-Chorus]
No matter what the world throws at us
We’ll get back up again
Again
[Chorus]
Hold tight
As long as you’re by my side
Hold tight
Everything’s gonna be alright
I know we’ll find a way
Push to the limit with no end in sight
I know we’ll find a way, tonight, hold tight
[Verse 3]
We’ll live with no limits
We’ll dance in the middle of the freezing rain
With you and I in it
We’ll survive the eye of a hurricane
Us together, we gotta make this better
We’re gonna be alright, tonight
[Pre-Chorus]
No matter what the world throws at us
We’ll get back up again
Again
[Chorus]
Hold tight
As long as you’re by my side
Hold tight
Everything’s gonna be alright
I know we’ll find a way
Push to the limit with no end in sight
I know we’ll find a way, tonight
Hold tight
[Drop]
Hold tight
Hold tight
[Bridge]
I don’t wanna breathe air that you’re not breathing
I don’t wanna hear if your heart’s not beating
If you hurt, then I wanna be the one that’s bleeding
It’s alright so, so hold on tight
[Chorus]
Hold tight
As long as you’re by my side
Hold tight
Everything’s gonna be alright
I know we’ll find a way
Push to the limit with no end in sight
I know we’ll find a way, tonight
Hold tight
Hold tight
As long as you’re by my side
Hold tight
Everything’s gonna be alright
I know we’ll find a way
Push to the limit with no end in sight
I know we’ll find a way, tonight
Hold tight
Hold tight

The town where humans and wild kangaroos coexist

When you prepare to leave the coastal Queensland town of Woodgate near Bundaberg, locals send you on your way by stating “watch out for the roos”.At dusk and dawn they can often prove a hazard along the only road in and out of town through the surrounding national parks. (ABC Wide Bay: Brad Marsellos)
“Dogs and kangaroos will never coexist well and every attempt to do so has ended in abject failure.”Government policy will need to be altered if kangaroo numbers continue to increase and the ACT Government has begun trialling a contraceptive vaccine targeting female kangaroos and is culling 3,200 kangaroos over the next few months.But in Woodgate the locals seem to have found the perfect lifestyle balance with the natives, according to Traci Osborn.”We see them at sunset; we see them at sunrise,” she said.”This year at the Woodgate Australia Day Breakfast there was a kangaroo camped out under the Australian flag.”How Aussie is that? You gotta love Woodgate.” (ABC Wide Bay: Brad Marsellos)
In the past battling bucks have been front page news in the daily Bundaberg paper, with residents woken to screaming bloody roo battles at their front doors. External Link:

Kangaroos enjoying the surf at Woodgate. But according to Woodgate resident of 30 years Nancy Colder, things have calmed down and she feels it’s most likely related to a human population increase.”We have a lot more people living here now, so it’s probably pushed them back into the national park a bit,” she said.”You do have to know how to deal with them because they can get kind of stroppy.

Tourists choose Woodgate Beach to spot kangaroos not in a zoo environment. “If you get a couple of them fighting, it’s a no-go zone; don’t go anywhere near them.”For business owner Vicki Johnston the kangaroos mean tourist dollars and her bed and breakfast accommodation focuses on the kangaroo drawcard, including the name ‘Two Hops’.”We have just had visitors from the United Kingdom who specifically came to Woodgate looking for kangaroos,” she said.”On an afternoon walk they spotted 38 kangaroos.”They respect them and people want to see kangaroos in their natural habitat and this is a beautiful place to do that.”Move to the inner city only a hop awayAssociate Professor Bob Doneley from the Veterinary Medical Centre at the University of Queensland believes Woodgate Beach is not a unique town as far as kangaroos coexisting with humans.”It’s not unusual to see them in towns and cities, for example Wacol in Brisbane has a large population living in it,” Dr Doneley said.”When it’s dry, kangaroos are forced into coastal areas looking for food, so we are seeing a rise in numbers in some areas and decline in others.”The kangaroos are forced to interact with humans.”Dr Doneley believes the kangaroo could go the way of the brush turkey or possum and take up residence in inner city suburbs around Australia, if they continue to face issues like drought and loss of habitat.”I think they definitely could move to the inner city,” Dr Doneley said.”The only real problem will be pets such as dogs. But are the locals protecting the drivers of the car, or are they protecting the kangaroos?The farewell message perfectly summarises the coexisting relationship the town has with the large population of marsupials that have always called the area home.They live in harmony — most of the time.Mobs of eastern grey kangaroos live side-by-side with the population of around 1,000 locals, feeding on lawns, sheltering on verandas, and playing on the beach alongside children.Woodgate Beach photographer Traci Osborn recently captured a video that went viral on social media, featuring a mob of kangaroos taking an afternoon ocean swim while children frolic in the background.Kangaroos on the beach is a common sight Ms Osborn said, but to see so many with young was a special treat.”One or two kangaroos at Woodgate on the beach is normal for us locals,” she said.”But when the whole family of them came down, there was at least nine, and little joeys playing in the surf.”What blew me away, when I got home I noticed the kids playing in the background, it’s just beautiful and that’s why we love where we live.”The Woodgate residents consider the kangaroos to just be part of the town’s population and, like any neighbour, there can be good and bad qualities in the relationship.”We love them and we love to hate them,” Ms Osborn said.”The people with nice lawns love to hate them because they eat the grass and leave little surprises and then their dogs come along and eat the kangaroo poo.”The big bucks can be dangerous too; we always remember these are wild animals and we just live where they live.”
