  • Keep pop, keep poppin' and listen slow
    Trying to picture this but still nobody knows
    Where the people's ladies quit but still they never grow
    Where the man keep bluffin' toe to toe
    A place where your friends they go just to blow
    Ready to own soon as they made a bit of dough
    Can't really blame 'em for the life that they chose
    Cause I knew that all of them were in the same bowl

    This ain't no rhyme

    Enough bluesy where the edge should be seen
    Never heard anything about 'em on the TV
    Only Bobby who told where the tax pay a vid
    Oh, and the corporation greed
    We live in a world of vulturous things
    Where you can't just wind up the faith on mainstream
    And when you're in the middle, what side do you lean?
    I must say it's hard to be in the between

    This ain't no rhyme

    I understand that it must be a hard life
    I know what I'm looking at I can't supervize
    Patronizing would try to give you advice
    The man Curtis is "just hook down the knife"
    I knew from his eyes he was a gonna do twice
    Put your mask on before committing crimes
    This kid needs to think about time inside
    Cause a dagger to the heart comes at a price

    This ain't no rhyme

    Keep pop, keep poppin' and listen slow
    Trying to picture this but still nobody knows
    Where the people age quick but still they never grow
    Where the men keep bluffing till they're toe to toe
    A place where your friends they go just to blow
    Ready to own soon as they made a bit of dough
    Can't really blame 'em for the life that they chose
    Cause I knew that all of them were in the same boat
    It sounds like a place that you don't wanna go
    But this is the place that I call home
