Pharoahe Monch - Shine Lyrics

Chorus
In my heart
In my mind
Iツ知 gonna win
And youツ値l come
You tell me to wait
Give me a sign
And Iツ知 gonna shine
Iツ知 gonna shine (repeats)

Look man, do not get my block pissed, we'll blast your brain!
Two hundred-thousand dollar whips and chains
Crooked cops, crips, crack cocaine, Tupac, Chris,
Iツ知 still feeling the pain
Seven year-old girl shot and slain
What these all mean
Weツ池e goinツ insane?
In this struggle, stress, mayhem and panic
Where I'm from we do not eat organic
Talk about it
See my mama cannot afford Whole Foods
She break fast with a prayer, call it soul food
Where I come from
[Let it breath]
Where I come from
No one runs when funds run low
In lump sums we choose the dum dum dum bullets, dun dun
We livin' humdrum in the slums
Where scum conceal stun guns
The wordツ痴 mum for fun, son
Conundrums ainツ稚 pretty
In this cesspool called New York Shitty
I call it that ツ祖ause it smells like shit
Walk around hunched-back or you might get hit
I knew a nigger who sold crack to his moms
The same mother fucker sold crack to his kids
Lookinツ like 300 cominツ back from his bid, like
"Pharoahe, letツ痴 get this money for real"

Chorus


He said "Pharoahe, letツ痴 get this money up
What the fuck
What you need me to holler at Steve Rifkind?
Let him escape from New York like Snake Plissken?
I told you from the gate that you needed more marketing
And these major labels is not listening."
Stood in a B-boy stance, teeth glistening
From the gold in his mouth, summer breeze was whistling
I contemplated my retort, eyes fixed in
On a crucifix around his neck
I guess he was Christian
Just then the police siren it pitched into the sound
Track to the hood so I spoke with conviction
Spoke as if I was 6'10", thick skin,
Put a little bass in my voice like pitch bend
ツ舛ause where I come from
Where I come from, we all come from
Sky, moon, stars, earth and a sun
Multiple skin tones, the blood is one
The pen is the ammo to my automatic
I bring to fruition what I write to get me out of the slums
And Iツ知a shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine like the sun, the world is mine
Each line is speech designed to transcend time and reach
The unborn and transform your mind
And Iツ知a shine
Shine

Chorus

New York If youツ池e in the house
If youツ池e turninツ it out
Without a doubt
You know what Iツ知 talking about
Just scream and shout
Everybody say: shine shine shine
Now Detroit with the funky beats
Gettin' wild on the street
See the mark of the beast
Say f*** the police
[What up, X?]
Shine shine shine
Chi-town, with the funky sound
Soul by the pound
Just get on down
What the fuck do you want?
Say shine shine shine
West coast side with the most
Holding your toast
Brag and boast
Everybody say shine shine shine
Dirty dirty (repeats)
