THE 2 LIVE CREW - Revelation

rate me

One two

We don't stop



A revolution of mass confusion, brothers killin each other

Robbin their mother, father, sister and brother

They don't wanna get a job, or go to school

They think it's cool, but they're playin the fool

It's now 1984, five hundred years later

We're dominating both sides of the Aequator

In sports, music, and makin love

But yet we still have trouble rising above

It's said that in the later days

People shall be movin in different ways

There'll be many false prophets, devils in disguise

Performin illusions before your very eyes

Some have eyes to see, and ears to hear

But they cannot utilize them because of fear

You have sell-out brothers who will sell their heart

For fame and fortune or to get a head start

But in the long run they will see

That they are nothin else but victims of prophecy

Time is running short, the world is in damnation

Refuse to follow the laws of creation

You can not all be Jesus Christ

But you still can make some sacrifice

If not for anyone for yourself

Cause you have nothin to prove to anyone else

We don't longer have a sheperd now, we're lost sheep

Have to open your eyes, you can't afford to sleep

And a major factor is jealousy

Which stops us from obtainin the unity

Come on

You don't stop


Times are hard, and people are chillin

You can't get a job, but you know you're willin

So you go down to the unemployment line

And the man throws you out on your behind

Then you find some transportation, and you go back home

And find your wife cryin on the telephone

The police called to say that your job is ill

She tried to o.d. on a bottle of pills

Now you're mad as hell, and can't take it no more

So you grab your gun and walk out the door

You find another brother and you take their check

And deep down inside you know you're riskin your neck

How do you know they don't have a knife?

But you have your gun, so then you take their life

Now your pocket is full, but can't you see

That your soul will burn in hell for eternity?

See, I remember back in Brooklyn, when I was a child

Actin wild, cause that was the stlye

But as I grew older, I learned the deal

Because my old lady told me, "Son, be for real

You have a chance to be an architect or scientist

So why do you choose to be like this?"

You have to get yourself together before it's too late

It's up to you to be a bum or someone great

We all have it in us, and that is why

They tell us lies to cover our eyes

So we are not able to see the light

And differentiate wrong from right

You see, the road to vanity is filled with flowers

You better be careful of its hypnotic powers

While the road to truth is long and full if distress

But if you make it through, you're truly the best

Come on
