Navajo Rugs

  • Most slippers dreaming through this peace pipe
    Praying in the dark hoping that I see light
    Trynna stay sharp with a dark vision
    Gotta couple heathens with me trynna bombard the system
    My man just went to jail and brought a gun charge with him
    On top of that other felonies
    I told him hold his head I'll make sure he lives through these melodies
    I hate to see him trapped, wish these raps could just set him free
    Whoever thought selling heart would get you seventeen, that's seventeen
    I mean yesterday was everything if there's no hope for tomorrow
    And money ain't everything, I can go broke tomorrow
    Sometimes I find happiness in a broke down cigar
    In an isolated room on this Navajo wall
    Mind drifting, smoke disappearing through the wall
    I hear the loud voices, that's my homies calling
    Open up the windows, let the angels fall in

    As I bob and weave between stars
    Learn and dream between Mars
    When words are weaved, pictures are painted
    Like Navajo Rugs or woven blankets
    As I bob and weave between stars
    Learn and dream between Mars
    When words are weaved, pictures are painted
    Like Navajo Rugs or woven blankets

    Got so much on my mind, all these thoughts weaving in and out created design
    So intricate like hand spun rugs
    They say they talking outside
    But I hear no love
    I feel the shots in my back
    But there's no slugs
    I brush the dirt off my shoulders
    Wipe away all the mug that's been slung
    They say the sword ain't as mighty as the tongue
    The horns get the attention
    But the war starts with the drum
    808s and low ends beating on my chest like King Kong
    Gorilla warfare, the force here
    You could feel it in the song
    All the warrior in this gone
    I sip Indian style wrapped' in blankets
    Smokin' on the bong, trynna find my inner peace
    Jugglin' stone, never take it for granted, what the struggle is for
    Cuz through that dark hole life is beautiful, like emeralds and gold
    There's diamonds in the dirt, you just gotta dig through some coal

    As I bob and weave between stars
    Learn and dream between Mars
    When words are weaved, pictures are painted
    Like Navajo Rugs or woven blankets
    As I bob and weave between stars
    Learn and dream between Mars
    When words are weaved, pictures are painted
    Like Navajo Rugs or woven blankets

    I woke up among the confused, but yawning
    The bloodstream came to collect dues this morning
    For all the signs we drop, the parachute supplies
    Are limited, coated in images
    Yet the code of the streets leaves our thoughts with no access
    The revenue of colour, all reduced to a blackness
    But aside the thought, I can find the calm
    That's why we close our eyes to concentrate
    The cons debate, against the pros talking first degree
    Murder on the clock, they got time to kill
    I'm intricate to be up in it
    So I defend every minute, cons hoping for dimes to deal
    Perimeters occupied by a few chosen
    To take heed to the fact a few in here are posin'
    On the laws of lies, attracted to the warm like wool
    But don't let it get pulled over your eyes
    Oh, lord

    As I bob and weave between stars
    Learn and dream between Mars
    When words are weaved, pictures are painted
    Like Navajo Rugs or woven blankets
    As I bob and weave between stars
    Learn and dream between Mars
    When words are weaved, pictures are painted
    Like Navajo Rugs or woven blankets Writer/s: FREDDIE PERREN, ALPHONSO MIZELL, DEKE RICHARDS, BERRY GORDY JR, CHRISTINE PERREN, KELVIN MERCER, KYLE MYRICKS, DAVID JOLICEOUR
