PVRIS – Heaven

Just like a rising and falling chest that’s barely breathing
You took my heaven away
You took my heaven away
You took my, you took my heaven away
All I did was suffer
Away
Do you think we were speaking in tongues
[Bridge]
[Chorus]
Why couldn’t we just say

Do you ever wonder
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away

Away
[Interlude]
Who took the light from our life?
The light from my eyes?
[Ending]
All we did was suffer
You took my heaven away
And didn’t you ever wonder
(You took my heart)
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away
[Chorus]
I think we were cursed from the start
About the dread on my tongue?
[Verse 1]
You took my
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away
The blood in my lungs?
(You took my heart)
Or simply not enough?
(You took my heart)
(You took my heart)
I was too afraid to say

(You took my heart)
Our love is pushing out and pulling in
(You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away)
Second I let you into my heart
[Verse 2]
(You took my heart)
I think we were cursed from the start
You took my heaven away
(You took my heart)

(You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away)
Away

Madchild – Badchild

Not Casper the Ghost tight grasping for quotes
Fans acting like it’s killing them, these cheap tricks
Used to sit and gather my words, called it artillery
Last three months catatonic, feeling miserable
Now life is torture, would madly end it willingly
I don’t expect anyone to understand me
‘Cause pills the only way I know to patch these open wounds
[Verse 2]
Reason I’m still here are for my dogs and my family
Bubbling but still missing something like I’m diet cola
Trying to boss up like Tony Soprano
[Verse 1]
Can’t complain, kids like my art
Lost a couple teeth, went back to the grill again
Walk around my city and I feel like I’m invisible
Standing on a ledge about to jump but I’ll rejuvenate
Responsibility, literally killing me
But life moves so fast, I need a time out
Known for saying harsh remarks that are partially dark
But feel like, I’m still waiting for my life to start
Wasn’t working so I went and got my teeth fixed

High roller that’s bipolar
Starts a line once, haven’t had a break since
Samples chopped like it’s martial arts
Might be punished for my sins, that would make sense
Now I’m older, I got suicidal tendencies
When I was young, love, suicidal tendencies
Panic in my legs, feel heavy while I hallucinate
Maybe I should lower the bar, it’s raised too high
Nothing’s fucking thrilling me Life used to sparkle.
Feel stranded on an island like I’m Gilligan
Now feel like a piece of shit in a bottomless pit
Maybe I should work harder, but I do try
I’m still a boss like I’m Joseph Bonanno
Never felt like I had to ask it for dough
Holding on, but I hope it’s soon
Used to walk around, thank god i’m the shit
Trying to build my strength like beam so I can climb out

Kenny Chesney – Rich And Miserable

Green grass, help the cows graze, hedgefund 401
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Right wing blue jean, gotta get the new thing
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Come on, get rich and miserable
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
(But even when we get it)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
But we want it and we want it all right now
We’re too young until we’re too old

Don’t make enough to pay it off
Enough is never enough
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
Come on, get rich and miserable
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Keg and milk and honey in the land of the free
Whatever it takes to make the world look at you, think…
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
But even when we get it

[Chorus]
Too much is never too much
Really we don’t
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road

Too much is never too much
Too busy to call our mamas

Maybe we won’t
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
[Bridge]
We’re too young until we’re too old
Too much is never too much
(Maybe we won’t)
Enough is never enough
And maybe we’ll get it
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
American dream never wakes up
[Verse 2]
And on and on it goes

Go to school to get a job
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
American dream never wakes up
American dream never wakes up
[Chorus]
[Outro]
We don’t know what we want
(And maybe we’ll get it)
Enough is never enough
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
We’re too young until we’re too old
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
[Verse 1]
Back porch ain’t what it used to be
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
New York Times, Farmer’s Almanac
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows

[Chorus]

Joey Bada$$ – Victory

And this feels like a victory
Homie this my story, no mystery
And even if they still wheelchair him in the end
Been known we won before the song begun
Homie this my story, no mystery
I know that you wishing he prolly break a leg
[Hook]
The competition looks slim to me

Hold up, but let’s get back to business please
The competition looks slim to me

Yeah, ’cause this feels like a victory
First things first, uh, shoutout to the sponsors
’cause this feels like a victory
I’m in a lane of my own, two-three when I get in my zone
[Hook]
The kid from West Brooklyn, came with the thunder
You sit and watch when I’m against the clock I make the world stop
Like the homies with the rock in the white tube socks
And this feels like a victory
Yeah, ’cause this story is history
Every day another triple-double entendre
[Verse 2]
Homie this my story, no mystery
Yeah, ’cause this story is history
Homie this my story
Back by popular demand, I’m the man
I do it just for sport
I’ma be up for a while I know you sick of me
Got a team of warriors nobody ranked above us
Word is bond, I am the one
All I do is win I feels like a highlight reel

We gon’ be up for a while like keep the legacy goin’
Yeah, ’cause this story is history
And I got love for my brothers keep the chemistry strong
Looking in the crowd, at the audience they love us
Yeah, ’cause this story is history
The competition looks slim to me
Homie this my story
I got it locked, up in the cluster, pressure on
The most valuable Pro heading straight for the throne
At times I sit and wonder how I keep from going under
Yeah, ’cause this story is history
The competition look slim to me
The competition looks slim to me
‘Til his last stand, swear I got love for my fans
Yeah, ’cause this story is history
Yeah, ’cause this feels like a victory

Back on the block, I call the shots
[Hook]
[Verse 1]
Even when I’m OT man I still feel at home
The G-O-A-T when it’s all said and done
The competition looks slim to me
I put numbers on the board even scores up the floor for real
Homie this my story
Y’all ain’t real ballers, y’all just little leagues
And this feels like a victory
And we ain’t taking no losses we the winning team, East
They only make legends where I’m from
But I always beat the clock like Kyrie Irving at the buzzer
Everything I do I do it big, I’m a monster

K.I.D – Boy (feat. Cupcakke) (Lyric Video)

Then I’ll kiss your neck
[Post-Chorus]
When I pull you in the bar bathroom
But cassette tapes from 93′
Boy, my joy’s in your skin, boy
Boy boy, boy boy
Whistle at me as you ride your bike down Cherry Street
Boy boy, boy boy

Oh, boy, c’mon and put my anxious heart to rest
I really want it, boy

Tell me why you hesitate, don’t you love me yet?
All of my real filthy dreams come true
[Post-Chorus]

[Verse 2]
We spend two days with nothing on
When we get to talking, boy
Oh, boy, c’mon and put my anxious heart to rest
[Chorus]
Boy boy, boy boy

Boy boy, boy boy

Boy boy, boy boy
Come outside and help me light my cigarette
Boy, my joy’s in your skin, boy
When we get to talking, boy
[Chorus]
Don’t you love me yet?
[Pre-Chorus]
[Pre-Chorus]

Oh, boy, I like your tongue in my mouth
I really want it, boy
Oh, boy, c’mon and put my anxious heart to rest
Boy boy, boy boy
Oh, boy, I like my back on your couch
Oh, boy, I like my back on your couch

[Verse 1]
Oh, boy, I like your tongue in my mouth
All of my real filthy dreams come true
[Outro]
Oh, boy, I like my back on your couch
When I pull you in the bar bathroom
I really want it, boy
Boy, my joy’s in your skin, boy
Oh, you’re very sweet
Oh, boy, I like your tongue in my mouth
When we get to talking, boy

J. Cole – Neighbors

I just wanna talk to the man
And my nigga never walkin’ again
I’m movin’ back to Southside
To be the star you always knew you were
I guess the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
Took a little break just to annotate

Surrounded by the trees and Ivy League
Apologized if I’m harpin’ again
Just some shit to get from back and forth

Yeah the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
How I feel, damn it’s late
Thinkin’ you do you and I do me
Students that’s recruited highly
Don’t know what I was thinkin’
Black in a white man territory
Death, taxes, NRA
It’s this society that make
I guess the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
That’s why I moved away, I needed privacy
Wait, I think police is at the door
Well motherfucker, I am
So much for integration
Some things you can’t escape
Won’t believe what it’s costin’
I guess the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
Speak for the boys in the bando
In the driveway there’s no rapper cars
My niggas stand outside and pass cigars
Hm, I guess the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope sellin’ dope
Filled with marijuana, laughin’ hard
I’m movin’ back to Southside
Don’t follow me, don’t follow me
Cops bust in with the army guns
Or a nigga that could sing
The neighbors think I’m, neighbors think I’m
I am, I am, I am
Welcome to the shelter, this is pure
Don’t follow me, don’t follow me
Don’t know what I was thinkin’
And explain all the pain that it cost him
No evidence of the harm we done
Only time they see us we be on the news in chains, damn
I can’t sleep ’cause I’m paranoid
A teen down in Austin
But I’m back on the scene
Well motherfucker I am
Well motherfucker, I am
Just a couple neighbors that assume we slang
Sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
I think the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope
I was lost in a dream as I write this
Even when your crib sit on a lake
My sixteen should’ve came with a coffin
And it’s fit for a king, right?

Okay, the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope
I know these things happen often
Sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
I guess the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope sellin’ dope
So much for integration
Fuck the fame and the fortune, well, maybe not the fortune
The neighbors think I’m, neighbors think I’m
But one thing is for sure though, the fame is exhaustin’
Every nigga feel like a candidate
Sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope, sellin’ dope
Just some shit to get from back and forth
Okay, the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope
Thankful that they friend’s a platinum star
I think the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope (Don’t follow me, don’t follow me)
Crib has got a big ‘ol backyard
I don’t want no picture with the president

Even when the president jam your tape

We’ll help you if you’ve felt too insecure
I been buildin’ me a house back home in the south Ma
Well motherfucker I am
For a Trayvon kinda fate
I think the neighbors think I’m sellin’ dope (Don’t follow me, don’t follow me)
Even when your plaques hang on a wall
I am, I am, I am, I am

Corinne Bailey Rae – Night

There was a cool wind
There was a sharp sting
But I can see the kindness that burns in you
What did the stars sing
But you held your courage

Oh, the night is full of miracles
My tears, they fell like diamonds in the light
It was more than my heart could do
I folded you in a prayer with words so fine
There was a sharp sting

The night when I looked at
It was more than my heart could do

How could you refuse?
The night that I looked at you?
The night when I looked at you?
The night when I looked at
I regard the way that you hold me as wonderful, magical
And we are alone
The wind was so cruel
High up on a hill the rest submit to sleep
And silvered with cold

What did the stars sing
Can’t you see the path that I’ve chosen?
There was a cool wind
The night when I looked at you
But you held your courage
Won’t you hold my hand until it’s over
The night that I looked at you
And love has created

Angel Haze – Resurrection (Uncensored)

Before I even show up they gotta prepay, prepay
I just let my shit get so strong, can’t nobody here hold me?
We only fuck if you match my aesthetic
I mean, look inside my crib, look inside my whip
[Verse 1]
Hate what you not and that shit is pathetic
Anyway, fuck what you heard and shit
Yeah, resurrection, woo
I was like "Yeah, resurrection", woohoohoo
Wait, I think they all just rejecting
I die upon the devil, raise me now
Nigga, and my budget was a motherfuckin’ facelift, nigga what
Exes, flexin’, sexin’, textin’
Woah bitch don’t touch, hold my shit like that
If I phone home it’s a spaceship
I don’t really care, I caught me a colder piece
Exes, flexin’, sexin’, textin’
No one, no one, no one can save you now
I was like "Yeah, resurrection", woohoo
Damn, my perfection
I mean, y’all can tell by the shit I drive
Wait, not that I say I regret it
Bitches see me park or go wild and be screamin’ "Hey Professor Oglevee"
Copt the new McClan just to sit outside
And if you disrespect me yea the clit gonna ride

Bitches see me park or go wild and be screamin’

I just bought an island wildin’ crib
Like the Phoenix, yeah man, my shit on fire
[Verse 2]
[Chorus]
Then I drove like 30 hours to it
So big they doubled up the brokers fee
Now I’m resurrected like Jesus Christ
Wait, I just threw out my perspective
I just mapped outta direction
And I guess that got some power to it
[Chorus]
No one, no one, no one could save me now
Man your time runnin’ out, bit relay, relay, relay
So big they doubled up the brokers fee
I’m from 7 mile, I make urban shit
I just let my shit get so strong, can’t nobody here hold me?
When the doors go "Ah" like frequent flights
I just doubled down and made them niggas learn their lesson
I’m yellin’ "D-day, d-day, d-day, d-day, d-day"
[Outro]
Yeah, resurrection, woo
And call me nothing new

Damn, my perfection
And it took way too long for me to get that back
I don’t really care, I caught me a colder piece
And my homies all fuck suburban chicks
I just doubled down and made them niggas learn their lesson
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Wait, please dont front all my shit lke that
Lost all my soul just to get that plaque
Big old body men and I can’t drive for shit
2014, the year I died
I just bought an island wildin’ crib
2016, the year I rise

You a broke bitch, I don’t relay, relay
You die upon the devil, raise you now
Resurrection
But I just keep it player with my urban bitch

Brother Ali – Never Learn

Serving this culture might I confide that I’m here to assault you
I was standing on stage when my hero died
That’s just The Divine in us
I hit my head I guess I’ll never learn
Baby we ride ‘til our time is up
[Hook x2]
I don’t know where to turn
I hit my head I guess I’ll never learn

I don’t know where to turn
Light of the deen gleaming in your eyes
[Verse 2]
The poor righteous sons where the diamonds from
[Hook]
Even when the tears flow down both side you know why you sacrificed your whole life
Put down everything you’re trying to clutch
I don’t know where to turn
I can not claim it cause that’s the creator I stand up and state it
Ya Hafidh; Ya Wadud
Every generation of MC f**k with me so ill by consensus

Nation nineteen thirty three bowties
You’re still an apprentice
Get my head firm
I’m standing on champion greatness
But they tell me I should let it bleed, let it sting, let it burn
Got a little money up in my hand I do not have money in my heart

You see what I speak you touch it and feel it all six of your senses
[Hook x2]

Champion author small fry rock of Gibraltar; north side
That’s not bragging it’s praying that’s what I’m saying
And our ancestors are more alive than us
My power comes from the Most High
Libraries are transcribing us
Soul vibration is so fly I can walk on water no lie
Feel the heartbeat of my people’s cries
Get my head firm
Lord God of the globe sky
Get my head firm
An undying lust to see the climate just
My goodness good morning
I hit my head I guess I’ll never learn
My mission is endless I’ve been in this ten and I’m still as relentless
You can go ahead, let your soul fly cause the whole tribe blood line flow through mine
But they tell me I should let it bleed, let it sting, let it burn
But they tell me I should let it bleed, let it sting, let it burn
[Verse 1]

Listen, we love to fight cause we fight for love
Now build you a fence if you’re feeling defensive
I got some money in the bank that I did not have when I start

PJ Morton – First Began (Gumbo Album)

[Chorus]
Let’s be the way we were when we first began
When we first began
Be the way we were when we first began
Let’s be the way we were when we first began
[Verse 2]
Like the first time that I ever saw you smile
I want that feeling again

You need that feeling again
[Verse 1]
I want that feeling again
[Bridge]
Let’s be the way we were when we first began

Let’s be the way we were when we first began
When we first began
So we could foam again
Hold on and don’t let go
Yes we’ve got something special, let’s hope
If I die, I’d hope to find you in another life
[Chorus]
When we first began
And I’ll never find another like you and this I know
When we first began
Like the first time that I ever saw you smile
And I don’t know what would do without you and that’s no lie

[Chorus]
No one makes me feel the way you do inside
If I die, I’d hope to find you in another life
Like the first time that I ever saw you smile
If I die, I’d hope to find you in another life

Let’s be the way we were when we first began
So we could foam again
So we could fall again

PJ Morton – Claustrophobic (Gumbo Album)

Just gotta be me
And need the religion
I have a hard time trying to fit into your small mind
‘Cause I’m bad at doing me
Living through the same eyes, riding Uber, still got drived

Flooding through the streets
Don’t you know that
Somebody always tryna make you fit in a box
[Verse 3: Pell]
I’m claustrophobic
And never seen again, don’t think it’s possible
You should probably take a kodak
Standing on my own feet
You can be yourself, lay down for now

Think it’s better if we be ourselves
And I have a habit of dreaming bigger than anything
I can see right in front of me
[Chorus: PJ Morton]
Can’t see, the forest for the trees
No offense, we’re just trying to make you a star
Codo synthesize probably right in front eyes
I have a hard time to fit into your small mind
The movement for the breeze
[Verse 1: PJ Morton]
I can see right in front of me
Steady ass, wear that accent, travel you from New Orleans
It’s our differences with our treasures
[Chorus: PJ Morton]
Don’t play with me, five-0 for my home

[Intro: PJ Morton]
PJ, you’re not quite street enough
Can’t see, what you might want from me

Would you consider us changing some stone?
[Bridge: Pell]

And I have a habit of dreaming bigger than anything
So many voices
Made a trip to Cali and came back a different guy
[Verse 2: PJ Morton]
The truest never lie and I need a little space
PJ, you’re not mainstream enough, yeah
But I must admit, I’m claustrophobic
They clatch into my talents more than Catholics do arousery
Not the hardest rapper but I’m ’bout it much as Master P
When all I really fiend is impossi sensibility
And I have a habit of dreaming bigger than anything
I can see right in front of me
Go so, why I dabble with negative energy
Another man, just gotta be you

Thug life my nigga
[Chorus: PJ Morton]
Just recite if you relate
I have a hard time trying to fit into your small mind
I think that the thing makes us unique
Actor, little more time
[Outro: PJ Morton]
Like everything about who you are, ah

Oh, can you switch your star up a little more?
But I must admit, I’m claustrophobic

PJ Morton – Sticking To My Guns (Gumbo Album)

You can give me all you got
[Pre-Chorus]
[Bridge]
Till my work is done
Don’t, as I lay me down
You know, I just think sometimes humanity sneaks in and God has nothing to do with what we’re doing
Sticking to my guns
Oh, I got so much more to do
Till my work is done
[Chorus]
[Verse 1]
Can throw it all at me
(Chris, why don’t you play it for me here)
Sticking to my guns
Oh, you almost got me
Never, ever, ever gonna stop till I’m free
Yes I was starting to dum
But I’ve heard God get blamed for a lot of things that I think he got nothing to do with, ehm you know
The president we just voted in, many evangelicals thought he was the most qualified candidate that represented them the best, you know
I mean, people are passionate about what they believe, ehm you know
Never, ever, ever gonna stop till I’m free
I’m sticking to my guns
9/11 was in the name of God, killing people in the name of God
So you can give me all you got
You can give me all you got

Till my work is done
So you can give me all you got
And religion is such a sensitive subject you know
I’m sticking to my guns
[Verse 2]
[Chorus]

I pray I’m here to see it through
Never, ever, ever gonna stop till I’m free
Regardless of all the hateful things he spoke
Sticking to my guns
[Guitar Solo]
Till my work is done

Sticking to my guns
I’m sticking to my guns
I’m sticking to my guns
Till my work is done

I’m sticking to my guns
[Pre-Chorus]

[Spoken Outro]
Can throw it all at me
Till my work is done
I only hope that I’ll still be around
Can throw it all at me

Oh, then remembered that my own mind was my greatest contender
Can throw it all at me
I’m sticking to my guns

Never, ever, ever gonna stop till I’m free

PJ Morton – Religion (Gumbo Album)

Your God has nothing to do with them
[Post-Chorus]
Where is the love that your God spoke of?
You didn’t even take the time to find it yourself
Your God has nothing to do with them

Not sayin’ you don’t have good intentions
But you blame your God when it’s your own fault

Where is the love that your God spoke of?
Nothing to do with them
Your God has nothing to do with them
[Verse 2]
You don’t even know why you believe what you do
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
But you blame your God when it’s all your fault
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
I don’t think I like your religion

Nothing to do with them
Your God has nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them

[Chorus]
[Chorus]
That’s what you were told, let’s just be honest
I know that you are only human
Your God has nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
[Verse 1]
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
Nothing to do with them
Don’t always make the best decisions
Nothing to do with them
You just took their words to be true

PJ Morton – Alright (Gumbo Album)

You can check the score
We’ll be alright, be alright, be alright
Oh my lord, I can’t take no more
Alright, alright
We’ll be alright, be alright, be alright

We’ll be alright, be alright, be alright
Oh, you know the numbers don’t lie

I know it feels like it’s impossible
When it rains, it pours

PJ Morton – Everything’s Gonna Be Alright (Gumbo Album)

[Verse 2]
It feels like you don’t want me here
It will be alright, alright
[Chorus 2]
I can hear you loud and clear
(Everything’s gonna be alright)
(Everything’s gonna be alright)
(Everything’s gonna be alright)

Alright, alright

Well either way we’re gonna be just fine
It gonna be alright, alright
You know some people never change their minds
It will be alright, alright
Alright, alright
[Chorus 1]
(Everything’s gonna be alright)
[Verse 1]
Things will be alright

(Everything’s gonna be alright)
(Everything’s gonna be alright)
You see, I’m still here, let me adjust my pride
Even when you try to bring me down
It will be alright, alright
Killing his dad, my mom’s don’t mind it
(Everything’s gonna be alright)
(Everything’s gonna be alright)
Two steps forward, ten steps back
