1. Castaway

Maybe you have shot some one
Mayby you have shanked someone
Mybe you have killed someone
Maybe you donít care

So be it
Just donít get cast away
So be it
Just donít get cast away

Maybe you have losts of sex
Never caring whoís next
Itís like trying to get a noose around your neck
Maybe then youíll care

So be it
Just donít get cast away
So be it
Donít get cast away

What you say?
What you say?
What you say?
What you say?

Itís all forgivable

So maybe you have shot some one
Mayby you have shanked someone
Mybe you have killed someone
Maybe you donít care

So be it
Donít get cast away
So be it

Cast away




2. Up-Lifted

Uplifted
Uplifted

You donít want to hear it
You donít want to hear it
You donít want to hear it
Someone needs to say it
Someone needs to say it
That someone is me

I used to be on top of the world
I lost control of it
I seen my world fall down
Donít worry, I wonít preach to you
Iíll show you by the way I live, I live my life

Iíve been uplifted
Uplifted

Caught up in the city
Caught up in the city
Caught up in the city
Feeling like a soldier
Feeling like a soldier
Feeling like a soldier of one

I couldnít talk to society
I found it easier to fight my way out
Words are so powerful
Punches can win some battles
But words can win a war

When youíve been uplifted
Uplifted

Donít you know nothing is impossible?
Donít you know anything is possible?
Answer the door, answer the door
Answer the door inside your heart
Could it be real, could it be real?
Could it be real, could it be real?

I witnessed hell on earth
I took a part of me and I hid from the world
Pain made me feel unhappy
Affliction to me mean affliction to you
ĎCoz weíre living in a world of aggression
Hard not to feel it when itís all up in your face

Until youíve been uplifted
Uplifted
Iíve been uplifted
Do unto another
Do unto another
Do unto another
Like youíd want another
Like youíd want another
Like youíd want another




3. Un-Sentimental

You think that you lived a lifetime
But you ainít lived it at all
You dreamed, dreamed of being someone
Now your dreams are all deceased
Youíre

Un-sentimental
Un-sentimental
Un-sentimental
Youíre mad at the world

You think that you been forgotten
And you ainít got nothing to achieve
You try to hide your feelings
But your pain comes out in you
Youíre

Un-sentimental
Un-sentimental
Un-sentimental
Youíre mad, youíre mad, youíre mad at the world

Terrible way to live
Itís a terrible, terrible way, terrible way
Terrible way to live




4. Victim Of Riches

Everything has been a luxery to you
Nothing has ever been a discomfort to you
You always complain about what you got
Never having to do without

You always put yourself high upon a shelf
But do you really feel good about yourself
You look at life as a festival
But youíre a victim of riches

You got a fistful of pennies in your hand
Can buy more than ordinary people can
Another dollar is just another day
But what if God took it all away?
It ainít no impossibility
You think youíre immune to poverty
You couldnít survive the life
Cause youíre a victim of riches

Victim of riches
Victim of riches
Victim of riches
Victim of riches




5. P.O.W. (Pissed Off White Boy)

I get followed in department stores
Old ladies see me coming and they lock their doors
Theyíre thinking that Iím gonna try and rip them off
But I donít have the slightest desires at all

Police tell me that I look like sin
Theyíre checking my arms, thereís nothing but skin
Another cop footprint on my back
Kind of hard for me to say ďit was because I was blackĒ

Canít tell me I discriminate you
You maybe hate me but I donít hate you
Oppression isnít limited just to you
Yeah, Iím a white boy and Iím oppressed too

P.O.W.
P.O.W.
Hidden minority

Whoís the minority?
Who gets priority?
You do, no me, Iím a minority
You got a voice, I got a voice
You have spoken, my turn to speak mine

I can see the hate, itís deep in your eyes
What happened to your kin-folk I can sympathize
The white heathen took an upper hand
But it didnít make him any better of a man

I can understand your attitude
I never been whipped but neither have you
Youíve been oppressed by ignorant fools
Iím a pissed-off white boy, I been oppressed too

Whoís the minority?
Who gets priority?
You do, no me, Iím a minority

P.O.W.
P.O.W.
Hidden minority

A courageous man once had a drem
He had it cut short by a murderous fiend
Inferiority was taught to me
But in them same white circles Iím minority

Whoís a minority?
Whoís a minority?
Whoís a minority?
It is you, is it me?
Whoís a minority?
It is you, is it me?

M.I.A.
Minority in action




6. Articles

Truth is a fine line
You undermine
I think itís time that I
That I take you on, I take you on, I take you on
You seem to think life is just a rating

Wonít you write about me
Wonít you write about me in your
Articles, articles
Wonít you write about me
Wonít you write about me in your
Articles, articles

You patronize
Fictional lives
The story lies beneath
The lies that you made up, that you made up, that you make up
I say itís blatant yellow-journalism

You can build up a life
You can tear down a life
You can build up a life
You can tear down a life in your
Articles, articles
You can build up a life
You can tear down a life
You can build up a life
You can tear down a life in your
Articles, articles
Articles, articles

Weíre being robbed by the media
Weíre being lied to by media

Weíre being hand fed by media
Weíre being bitch-slapped by the media

Our freedomís deterred
Important words
Need to be heard but I said
That it isnít done, it isnít done, it isnít done
I think that youíre a victim of your own ratings

Weíre being waxed by the media
Becoming numb to the media
Weíre being brainwashed by the media




7. Special One

When I hunger
Girl you feed me
When Iím thirsty
Girl you water me
If Iím bad to you
You are good to me
Treat you like a queen
Thatís good advice to me

You are
You are the special one

If I stare at you
I beg your pardon
Itís cause youíre my private garden
If I stay here
I may pick a rose
I just may pick a dozen of those

You are
You are that special one

People donít see
The things I see
Iíd like your twins pressed up on me
I long for the moments that we join together passionately

Cause you are
You are that special one
You are that special one
You are that special one
You are that special one
You are that special one




8. Last Days

I took a look at the world today
Seemed like the world is in decay
I guess itís true what the prophets say
Looks like some people are gonna pay

Does it blow your mind?
Do you shake inside?
Is it time?
Could these be the last days?
These be the last days?

I seen the starving on T.V.
I felt bad so I sent money
A memory bothers me still
Diseases doctors cannot heal

Do you want to know?
Where you gonna go?
Or no?
Could these be the last days?
These be the last days?

I seen the news about the war
I also heard that there would be more
A friend of mine plays in the dark
I hope he doesnít get the mark

Not knowing when is the most frightening part of all
Although the warnings mark the season

Soon will be time for all to go
Donít want to hear you have to go
Why arenít you sad?
Why donít you grieve?
Hey Iím O.K., Iím ready to leave

The sights you seee are just a sign
Weíre getting closer to the end of time

Does it blow your mind?
Do you shake inside?
Is it time?
These are the last days
These are the last days




9. Hole In My Pocket

I just got taken in
By the police
And I ainít got the bail
Iíll have to go along
Cause I canít make the bond
So Iíll just sit in jail

Got a hole, endless hole
Got a hole in my pocket
Got a hole in my pocket
I may be poor but Iím happy

Love for your paper god
Expecting an applaud
You wonít get one from me
I may not have a lot
But what I have got
Is worth more than your money

Got a hole, endless hole
Got a hole in my pocket
Got a hole in my pocket
I may be poor but Iím happy

Everyday I laugh
Tell me, can you say that?
Everyday I smile
Tell me, can you say that?

You take care of your kind
You pay no never mind
To anybody
Hey, how about the ones
Who kick down all the funds
So you can live it up

Did your rubber check bounce hard?
There now baby, just put it on your gold card
Youíre funny caught up in your money
I ainít got the problem and I never will

And if I came across a dollar, how Iíd like to spend it
But I couldnít spend it, I wouldnít know how
But I bet you do, of course you do
I donít really need to
Want to know why?
Hear why

Because I can laugh
Tell me, can you say that?
Because I can smile
Tell me, can you say that?

Get with it

You may be full of rain
But no way you can possibly rain on my parade




10. Said A Prayer

I remember the days
Of getting drunk in our ally
Nothing to our name
But an empty bottle

Living was easy
I never took life serious
Until he unfolded a secret
That Iíll remember forever
He said, ďIf I shut my eyes for good, say a prayer for meĒ
He said, ďIf I shut my eyes for good, say a prayer for meĒ

He must have been under pressure
Cause I can feel him reaching out
Through the windows of his soul
I had no time to act
Only time to roll

The sun was setting
My home-boy said, ďLetís take a rideĒ
ďGo have some fun with a gunĒ
But to my surprise another lowrider down the street
Got involved in the shooting
A single shot to the head
Sent my home-boy to his early grave

Let me say a prayer for you
Before you shut your eyes for good
Let me say a prayer for you

Heís fighting it, trying to stay alive
Heís feeling the pain of a bullet wound
Heís bleeding, heís needing the help of someone
Heís fading, I know, God is waiting

As I looked into his closing eyes
I said a prayer

Jehovah Rafa




11. Wish Your Life

Wish your life
Wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life away

You say youíre wishing youíre 21
You say youíre wishing you had all the fun
When you reach it you will see
Youíll be wishing you were 17

You say you wish you had a different look
And had your fake figure in a glamour book
You say you wish you had a bigger chest
But then youíd look just like the rest

Donít wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life
Donít wish your life away

You say you wish you had a fancy ride
And your partner tells you that thereís one outside
It drives pretty but it ainít for sale
Now youíre wishing that you werenít in jail

You say youíre wishing maybe I were dead
And that you put a tiny bullet in my head
You say youíre wishing that you had a gun
That gun will wind you up in San Quentin

Donít wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life
Donít wish your life away

Wish your life
Wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life away

Win some, lose some

Wish your life
Wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life away

You say the grass is always green
But the grass ainít always what it seems
Oneís loss is anotherís gain
Lifeís all one in the same

Donít wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life
Wish your life
Wish your life
Wish your life
Donít wish your life away




12. Ain't No Place Like Home

There ainít no other place

Ainít no place
Ainít no place like home
There ainít no other place
Ainít no place
Ainít no place like home
So what are you running from?

You canít abide by their demands
So you took your life in your own hands
No one now to answer to
No one now to care for you

Turned your life into a mess
To survive you sell your flesh
Find yourself upon your knees
Infected with social disease

You reached the point where you canít take no more
The abuse is sex and physical
Itís time to run, but not away
Itís time to run to a higher place

Life in the streets of fear
Ainít no place to hide in here
Hard headed younginí fool
Best know what youíre getting in to
Lifeís hard, still there

Ainít no place
Ainít no place like home
There ainít no other place
Ainít no place
Ainít no place like home
So what are you running from?

Ainít no place
Ainít no place like home
There ainít no other place
Ainít no place
Ainít no place like home
So what are you running from?
