But did ya or do ya ever think about the past? I did that but yo them good times never last I went back cuz uh Hindsight is 2020 And you know what right now the time is good as any To blow up and save a little something for the winter 'Cause it could be a cold rainy day in December You will go broke living beyond your means It's no surrender in the real world scheme of things Get me once it's your fault you threw the salt But if ya get me twice I shoulda saw that you were faulty So I pay the price for all the trust that I bestowed I can't make it right just never walk down that road Life goes on like me & Pigeon John in that song You can't be sitting there tripping off of what you did wrong Any angle I didn't see I peep it sharp & precise If it's your area of expertise I'll take your advice 'Cause uh Hindsight is 2020 That's right you feel me Hindsight is 2020 It's true they say that Hindsight is 2020 You live and learn don't you (2x) (you just live and learn) Hindsight is 2020 That's right you feel me Hindsight is 2020 It's true they say that Hindsight is 2020 We live and learn don't we (2x) (we live and learn) Help yourself if nobody's working for you And be creative you can always make something new Get on the ball the path in which you're gonna pursue Plus you gotta be passionate about the work that you do 'Cause if not it's just a paycheck Better yet call it a safety net How real does it get? Pursuing a dream is like living off money that you ain't made yet Taste success but remember how you kept it true Can't forget about your family and immediate crew No regrets what's done is done we pushed on through Everyone knows you don't always get the credit that's due To be underestimated is a motivator Right now I'ma work hard to show 'em later There isn't a stone that will be left unturned The future's brighter if you recognize you live and you learn 'Cause uh Hindsight is 2020 That's right you feel me Hindsight is 2020 It's true they say that Hindsight is 2020 You live and learn don't you (2x) (you just live and learn) Hindsight is 2020 That's right you feel me Hindsight is 2020 It's true they say that Hindsight is 2020 We live and learn don't we (2x) (we live and learn) So if ya and when ya ever reminisce on it Remember life is long with its shortcomings Your memory should not rule you so move on Your history won't let you repeat the same wrongs I'm Scott free and all them non-knowing days are gone Like Shock G and Digital it's still the same song The players change but the game is the game and it's a whole lot of hating when you're making a name Bear the pain 'cause there's more work to do Give it your all if not then all you're hurting is you Pray for those who falsely persecute They don't know Father be merciful May universal wisdom be elevated And may your best guess be educated Every move calculated With respect for Mother Nature & how the Creator made it 'Cause uh Hindsight is 2020 That's right you feel me Hindsight is 2020 It's true they say that Hindsight is 2020 You live and learn don't you (2x) (you just live and learn) Hindsight is 2020 That's right you feel me Hindsight is 2020 It's true they say that Hindsight is 2020 We live and learn don't we (2x) (we live and learn)

I see good people everywhere... You gotta count your blessings Never really had more than I was supposed to get now I got it Been getting my life together It's hard to see a good thing staring you in the face when you got it We always want something better Sometimes you gotta let go just so it can come back to you No matter how bad I don't get sad or blue 'Cause I know I'm blessed Just to have a roof over my head I know I'm blessed Yes let the truth be said I know I'm blessed Just to have shoes on my feet I know I'm blessed Just to have some food to eat I know I'm blessed Blood in my veins and feel my heartbeat I know I'm blessed Air in my lungs and music on the streets I know I'm blessed Just to have clothes on my back I know I'm blessed If you ever helped or picked up the slack You will be blessed No one's ever helped out like family or friends and I got 'em We live this life together Let everyone from my neighborhood know I never forgot 'em We'll be bros forever Sometimes you gotta go just so you can come back again I feel joy inside and my face it has a grin 'Cause I know I'm blessed Just to have a roof over my head I know I'm blessed Yes let the truth be said I know I'm blessed Just to have shoes on my feet I know I'm blessed Just to have some food to eat I know I'm blessed Blood in my veins and feel my heartbeat I know I'm blessed Air in my lungs and music on the streets I know I'm blessed Just to have clothes on my back I know I'm blessed If you ever helped or picked up the slack You will be blessed

Poseidon 04:22
Poseidon...ooh ooh ooh Ugh You fell for everything they threw at you When u gon' realize who is who and What will u have when they're through with you I ain't new to being exploited fighting demons I made choices And always did it for the movement the voiceless From Crenshaw to Croydon Hear the continental the clairvoyant My competition is so boyish bumping they gums Listen to 'em my lyrics are more poignant Join me in properly reppin the dedication If you born free and gotta get yours we never waiting They say don't catch feelings just break through glass ceilings I never had millions but I'm grinding instead of hating You hating instead of grinding You might as well turn in your papers and resign then Diamonds in the rough are not stumbled upon With a weak foundation the walls are crumbling on ya House of cards will fall When the wind cries Mary the roof caves and down go the walls Poseidon the waves are rising The Earth is shaking That hawk is biting But a house that was built on the rock is where I stand They playing for keeps and for kicks But they building with Popsicle sticks instead of bricks You chasing everything they offered you If you feel like it's something you gotta do Yet that offer's too good to be true I applaud you for the effort though Except now they gon' let you go And they didn't even offer dental & medical From the ghetto under-educated the fresher the black face is Label get 'em right outta high school for the taking Build him up on some ignorant shit & praise him Until he starts believing the hype that made him famous They get a deal then they go to jail then it's 3 meals PC'd up in a cell it don't make sense 'Cause of this exploitation I always did it for the vandals - the vagrants You know they want niggas to lose To die broke like the ones who made rhythm and blues Now how that sound not profound So I huffed and I puffed and blew they house down House of cards will fall When the wind cries Mary the roof caves and down go the walls Poseidon the waves are rising The Earth is shaking That hawk is biting But a house that was built on the rock is where I stand They playing for keeps and for kicks But they building with Popsicle sticks instead of bricks We know that the wind Blows right out from the sea But when these waves start rushing in Will this house protect me Yeah! We sandbag barricade shelter For the land mass serenade Alpha and Omega Stand back as the tidal wave pelts ya If built on Rock of Gibraltar you held your ground The sun melts ya your boys can't help ya Falling comets from the asteroid belt And the worst parts of the Bible - hell yeah Mothership won't be no flight by Delta Rise and smell the fresh salt water and sulfur Slaughtering whales and everybody thought it was over All didn't fail with foundation strong as a boulder but One day I'll see a falling supernova 'cause House of cards will fall When the wind cries Mary the roof caves and down go the walls Poseidon the waves are rising The Earth is shaking That hawk is biting But a house that was built on the rock is where I stand They playing for keeps and for kicks But they building with Popsicle sticks instead of bricks We know that the wind Blows right out from the sea But when these waves start rushing in Will this house protect me The wind's gonna blow sometime The wind's gonna blow sometime The waves gonna rise Oh we know the waves gon' rise The Earth's gonna shake sometime The Earth's gonna shake sometimes That's gon' be our fate sometimes We know that the wind Blows right out from the sea But when the waves start rushing in Will this house protect me Oh when the waves rise Will this house protect me

Monitors 04:10
It's always someone listening It's always someone watching He's always listening and watching He's out there watching and listening too Listening and watching what we say and do But who is monitoring you I always feel like somebody's watching me My mind's playing tricks on me always a mystery Is it real or am I letting stuff get to me Getting too angry mentally physically Or just concerned about the turn of the century Or the return of a certain entity Mentioned throughout history as the defining moment for all humans While Big Brother's spying knows just what we're doing He's always listening and watching He's out there watching and listening too Listening and watching what we say and do But who is monitoring you So when you're talking he is listening So when you're sloppy he's arresting you Internet surfing he is watching Internet chatting he is logging you And when you're napping he is working Workers are shift changing to keep tabs on you The more technology that you do use The better tracking that he has on you He's always listening and watching He's out there watching and listening too Listening and watching what we say and do But who is monitoring you Used to feel like nobody noticed me That's how it always go for me it's never no hope for me It's all in your head homie plus it's no pity It's no mercy in a dog eat city Where someone's always lying to theft your identity And someone's always trying to chip at a man's dignity Age digital the sales ain't pivotal I guess you wasn't paying attention like 8 years ago He's always listening and watching He's out there watching and listening too Listening and watching what we say and do But who is monitoring you I always feel like somebody's watching me Watching me I sit alone in my 4 cornered room staring at candles Somebody's watching me Somebody's listening to me Why are you monitoring me I don't want you to monitor me You're invading my privacy

Oh have you Oh have you Oh Have you? Have you been forced to balance what was want and need Matters Matters not if you took more than you gave to me As much as I've loved I've never hated that much As much as I've given I've never taken that much And listening to music was like taking a drug For every cigarette you smoked I lit up a Dutch A Philly Swisher with crutch Sometimes I think I'm blazing too much Forever young I don't wanna grow up But I swear Toys Ain't Us No playing with it faking the funk I stay committed to the ways of the under Not just flave of the month That fades away and never stays around here You gotta know your peaks and valleys like a mountaineer I'm speaking softly but the message rings loud & clear Redefine and speak your mind before you outta here (gone, bye) I plan to take it over in about a year Yall thought I was sounding weird Fuck around be a millionaire still aware with my ear to the street The hungrier you are the better you get complacent when you're comfy Have you? Have you been forced to balance what was want and need Matters Matters not if you took more than you gave to me I just Hope I did not take more than I gave to you Always Know I always did what my heart said I should do Don't cut yourself off from a blessing Hush now Let the music talk and learn a lesson I hear what you're saying but hush And let the music hit ya like you just took a puff So come get faded with us I waited for love Can't say I never dated a lady from a club Man I know I love my lady just don't say it enough She know she drive me crazy with her big ole butt Temper and we gone fuss It's human nature to break up make back up I guess that's why we argue fight and fuck If I get high enough then what we fight about goes in and out one ear Silent around the house can't be like that around here Now it's a child we share no other woman shall compare Gotta figure it out living can't be no nightmare Old ghosts reside there demons don't always fight fair Good vibes come in and revive a breath of fresh air Harmony in the hardware positive every idea Come this far and can't turn back challenges I fear none Have you? Have you been forced to balance what was want and need Matters Matters not if you took more than you gave to me I just Hope I did not take more than I gave to you Always Know I always did what my heart said I should do (Go with the flow yall) Don't cut yourself off from a blessing (Don't d-d-don't don't don't)(Hush now!) Let the music talk and learn a lesson The music's making a connection

King IV A Day Yo word up ugh ugh here we go Since i was young i've lived life as a dred The life i've lead is not for everyone though I've seen youngsters get shot in the head Innocent bystanding at the liquor store My hood could turn a good kid bad It bred killers where the dealers ran dope Oh you ballin now they want you have Try and rob him he gone let his gun blow Lights and action all 9s and Mac 10s All guns don't speak with the same accent Some talk loud and some spit softly With the silencer on or off they get it poppin Places actors for the assassination Clash of the races gun fascination Fist fights to clappin youngins lack the basics And shoot they ownselves in the thigh with heaters off safety You don't need to carry a gat 'Cause when you hold it like you don't know how to act Clap on (bang bang) you ain't the only one here strapped You don't want drama someone ends up on their back When it pop off (clap off) (pow!) murder the mean way Dirty or clean way when you heard the machine spray And now you're king for a day in this here town though Heavy's the head that wears the crown Poseidon Poseidon...ooh ooh ooh Ugh You fell for everything they threw at you When u gon' realize who is who and What will u have when they're through with you I ain't new to being exploited fighting demons I made choices And always did it for the movement the voiceless From Crenshaw to Croydon Hear the continental the clairvoyant My competition is so boyish bumping they gums Listen to 'em my lyrics are more poignant Join me in properly reppin the dedication If you born free and gotta get yours we never waiting They say don't catch feelings just break through glass ceilings I never had millions but I'm grinding instead of hating You hating instead of grinding You might as well turn in your papers and resign then Diamonds in the rough are not stumbled upon With a weak foundation the walls are crumbling on ya House of cards will fall When the wind cries Mary the roof caves and down go the walls Poseidon the waves are rising The Earth is shaking That hawk is biting But a house that was built on the rock is where I stand They playing for keeps and for kicks But they building with Popsicle sticks instead of bricks You chasing everything they offered you If you feel like it's something you gotta do Yet that offer's too good to be true Monitors It's always someone listening It's always someone watching He's always listening and watching He's out there watching and listening too Listening and watching what we say and do But who is monitoring you I always feel like somebody's watching me My mind's playing tricks on me always a mystery Is it real or am I letting stuff get to me Getting too angry mentally physically Or just concerned about the turn of the century Or the return of a certain entity Mentioned throughout history as the defining moment for all humans While Big Brother's spying knows just what we're doing He's always listening and watching He's out there watching and listening too Listening and watching what we say and do But who is monitoring you You'll Eat Those Words (Live) Ugh I set the table use napkins silverware We dine fine China but 1st bless the food with prayer And then we all eat dinner Have a plate and conversate About our lives and situations And we could all relate Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Gourmet buffet souffle Flambe etouffee Bay leave seasoning Manifesting with the bredren reasoning And we should bring it all to the cypher When we all eating dinner So we all can decipher Any problems front and center My heart's in something I'm wanting you to approve Love ones don't front when They say what they think you should do You should just get a job Why are you underground You should've finished school When will you buckle down Is this gon' ever stop When will you cut your hair Knock knock to the knock knock Knock knock knock knock is someone there Your youthful fire It wants to prove them wrong Burning desire Part of what makes you strong Don't you run away from truth Little Boy You say you will but where's your proof that you'll make noise You'll eat those words I'm gonna make u eat them - agh! You'll eat those you'll eat those you'll Don't deny a man a try You'll eat those words You'll eat those you'll eat those You'll eat those words You'll eat - don't deny a man My heart beats faster than a speeding bullet Don't shoot me down quick or take the trigger pull it Our blood runs thicker than the ocean water Show 'em proper love from a mother father Give N Take Oh have you Oh have you Oh Have you? Have you been forced to balance what was want and need Matters Matters not if you took more than you gave to me As much as I've loved I've never hated that much As much as I've given I've never taken that much And listening to music was like taking a drug For every cigarette you smoked I lit up a Dutch A Philly Swisher with crutch Sometimes I think I'm blazing too much Forever young I don't wanna grow up But I swear Toys Ain't Us No playing with it faking the funk I stay committed to the ways of the under Not just flave of the month That fades away and never stays around here You gotta know your peaks and valleys like a mountaineer I'm speaking softly but the message rings loud & clear Redefine and speak your mind before you outta here (gone, bye) I plan to take it over in about a year Yall thought I was sounding weird Fuck around be a millionaire still aware with my ear to the street The hungrier you are the better you get complacent when you're comfy Have you? Have you been forced to balance what was want and need Matters Matters not if you took more than you gave to me I just Hope I did not take more than I gave to you Always Know I always did what my heart said I should do Don't cut yourself off from a blessing Hush now Let the music talk and learn a lesson
