Bombs Away

Album: Strange Clouds (2012)
  • As the war between light and darkness continues
    Heroes and villains become harder to identify
    Kindred spirits separated at birth
    Fighting for their place in time to be solidified
    The clock ticks faster and faster
    While time runs a marathon in this Babylon
    But see, the end is only the beginning
    The beginning of the calm before the storm

    I used to dream of success, now success is inadequate
    It seems the bigger I get, it's the more they get mad at me
    'Cause it ain't no rules inside this fight that we battlin'
    And it ain't no leftover scraps, you only eat if you capture it
    And I swear it's like a fucked up reality
    But creation needs a devil, the devil needs an advocate, I guess
    And I ain't too big on duality, but
    You think you know me? You ain't seen the half of me

    So fly, no gravity
    So high, Mount Everest
    And the show must go on, yes
    But I don't have to act in it
    And they don't make a television that handles the frequencies of my channel
    And there ain't no computer that can hack it
    It just don't have the capacity
    Hell naw that ain't happenin'
    You hustle? Well we are Grand Hustle, nigga we mastered it
    Y'all workin' on your bachelors, we ball like the athletes
    Drink wine out of chalices on Sunday like we Catholics
    And if this is an embassy, consider me ambassador
    Official, no artificial preservatives or additives
    I love it all, but I ain't attached to it
    They call this a game because it is exactly

    Whenever I wake up, I get this feeling
    That I can't wait up, 'cause time is ticking
    (Bombs away) Bombs away

    Whenever I wake up, I get this feeling
    That I can't wait up, 'cause time is ticking
    (Bombs away) Bombs away

    And it seems like, in the grand scheme of it all
    The world's run by a few people and we never seen them at all
    How do they exist if we don't know who they are?
    They can be you, they could be me, they could be queens and Gods
    Some say that we're slaves, an alien race created us all
    From a distant star, some say through evolution we evolve
    But if anything, what you finna see is a change, don't be alarmed
    And whoever they are, well I think that it's time we start takin' charge
    Fuck rules, fuck boss
    You can be whatever you want
    You could be a star with a car with a house made out of gold
    In the springs, or the falls you could never see it all
    If you don't know what I mean, have you seen Niagara Falls?
    Man I swear this world is ours, but I've just been pushed too far
    Now I be beast mode up on these bars
    Freak out a beat and then beat it out raw
    Good God, if I go this hard, by the time I'm ninety
    I won't need Viagra naw, even if I had a dog
    I be the canine, I'd have a ball
    Better watch out when you cross my yard
    I am a flame, I am the spark
    I am in drive, y'all are in park
    Look at my shot, look at the arc
    Look at the crowd as soon as I start
    Look in they eyes and look in they hearts
    Two middle fingers straight at the law
    Sincerely yours, so pray to your Lord
    'Cause this is a war, ain't talkin' 'bout bullets and swords
    UFOs don't make any noise
    When they travel in hyper speed, so welcome aboard

    Whenever I wake up, I get this feeling
    That I can't wait up, 'cause time is ticking
    (Bombs away) Bombs away

    Whenever I wake up, I get this feeling
    That I can't wait up, 'cause time is ticking
    (Bombs away) Bombs away

    Whenever I wake up, I get this feeling
    That I can't wait up, 'cause time is ticking
    (Bombs away) Bombs away

    Whenever I wake up, I get this feeling
    That I can't wait up, 'cause time is ticking
    (Bombs away) Bombs away

    As the mask of deception falls off the face of humanity
    Unveiling the grim reality of duality
    In which everyone is a casualty, no one will be exempt
    Truth has many shades
    It's not a matter of black and white, but gray
    Although many, we are one, so in the final analysis
    Could it be that we are fighting a war that can't be won? Writer/s: BOBBY RAY JR. SIMMONS
