ORGANIZED KONFUSION - Maintain Lyrics



[prince poetry]
I'm sitting at the edge of my bed and I'm fed
Up with negative thoughts running straight through my head
Life's ready and I can't make movesit's hard
And I thought it would have been nice to buy papa dukes some shoes
Niggas try to get overpressure on my shoulders
Dropped the fat lp in '91 of october
Now that I'm older and my man pops is gone
My focus is strongermom pick up your headgotta move on
Do you remember mr. j used to say the beats was fat
But when it comes to businessnigga don't play
I look beyond all this stress to seek fate
Mad homicidesunemployment rates sky high
Shorty busting capscops caught him out there
Daytime drama and his mama didn't care
That's why I should be rapping and packing pistols on the bully
But niggas be stressing me and I ain't paid in fully
So I'm dropping something fatternot for props
We're respecting the matterhops
I'm fatcheck my statsprince drops data for me and my man pops
Rolls-royce and myself are always getting mad harassed by the cops
So now I'm in the chop shop creating masterpieces
So it don't matter money what my funny label releases
Thanks to the streets and my peeps that made me
And the la-la-leela-la-lee

We gotta maintain (repeat 8x)

[pharoahe monch]
Now it's been saaaaaaaaaaida grown man ain't supposed to cry
So whyyyyyyare there tears inside my eyes?
I wake up in the morningget some new problem
I just can't solve 'em
Yoextreme kidI'm telling you manI'm on the brink of ? ? ?
Who's that man in the mirror? ha!
The picture's getting clearer and clearerha!
The end is coming nearer and nearerha!
Take a good look at what you fearha!
Time marches on and it's a new song
It's a new morningit's a new dawn
Feet don't fail me nowI got to make it to the studio someway somehow
But I need a little bit of nourishment first
I stop at the store to quench my thirst
Why are they watching me buy my juice?
Why must they clock my buy my juice?
Just give me my change and please put my change in my hand
Man would you listen to me if I didn't have a tan?
All you have to do is show some decency
But you want to bring out the beast in me
Papa always told me...be all you can be
And maintaingotta maintain

(ad-libs to end)
