Blue Scholars

Blue Scholars - Sagaba (Remix)

rate me

Sister sits on the steps, cigarette rests on fingertips

Sippin slow death through her lips

Blows a kiss that I can not resist

She got that ill gift of gravity, thick

Like the tension cut quick with formalities

Hi, my name is Geo whats your zodiac sign?

She replies its Aquarius and thats a wack line

Decline the invitation to partake in a square

Mezmerized smoke dissipates in the air

I can conjure up the fearless defined in conversation

Body language talkin but lost in the translation of her name

She said brothers tend to mispronounce it its Sagaba

Tells me what it means, in Ilocano it translates into suffering

I'm pondering the irony, building on our so called civilized society

The storyteller stops, waiting for the beat to drop

Gathering his thoughts in a cloud breathin out

[Chorus:]

It's like that yall, it's like this yall

Now I couldnt stand to see the queen

breath her dreams away

Either way we go things are gonna be okay, so they say

Said that I used to know a sister just like you,

beautiful but jaded by the multitude of men who'd often try to

justify their lies with

manhood deficient twisted notions of survival

Insecure seein even lovers as the rivals

and hidin behind the armor and karma completes the cycle

I'm sick of all this metaphor philosophy

You got a man, whats your man got to do with me?

you see between you and i is a thin line we stand by

But if we ever find ourselves on the other side

then time will stand still and whole worlds will collide

we hardly know ourselves if we've got nothin to ride for

a struggle to live to the fullest and die for

and make love and wage war for

[Chorus:]

It's like that yall, it's like this yall

Dreams be the ashes burned thrashing in the wind

Flying from the burning bush flung from her fingers

and it hung in the air, in this moment of truth

then it crashed into flames like the end of our youth

We gettin trapped in extractions, reality bites back

We casually fight, lackin the insight to spite that

Opposites attract, but if not we stay honest

she told me that its better to be critical than conscious

My sister, your fist is more symbolic than you know

And use it as a weapon if he calls you a...

hold up, did I mention i'm a pisces,

and all these other fish up in the sea would ever love you like me?

Inhale, the imagery, a queen walkin steadily

Hips sway sweetly to an old soul melody

I hold this memory close, she kept walkin

and thats when I wrote the first line to this song like...

[Chorus:]

It's like that yall, it's like this yall
