lyrics

On the stairway to heaven, it’s a rappers delight
Remember my lust for life whenever touching a mic
A little Paranoid with the world, what’s going on
The NSA preparing for war, and we the pawns
It’s Too Late, they’ve already won, so let it be
But I won’t get fooled again, we’re not free
Keep your lies in your song, cause me and Bobby McGee
Will smoke on the water, blazing a tree
Gotta teach the man, pass and puff, don’t stop
Till you get enough, it isn’t tough, you isn’t hot stuff
Just go your own way, I’ve been a loner ever since
Trapped within that hotel in California
Was more than just a feeling, don’t call it superstition
The night moves, playing the right groves, and time is ticking
And that’s the Way I like it, a little violence
With some rock and roll behind it, the 70’s it was timeless

Hook:
Have You Ever Seen the Rain
Cause The Boys Are Back In Town
Living your Life in The Fast Lane
Only The Good Die Young now

Damn I miss my father, wish you were here, this heart of glass
Couldn’t last, shattered in the past, the heroes never last
Took a train to Georgia, was midnight, tried to imagine
If any riders on the storm, shared related passion
This life in the fast lane, cars on autobahns
Keep it strong, lust for life, wanna fight, lets get it on
Its just what I needed, these back stabbers, couldn’t make it
How to take it, man I want to be sedated
Got a heart of gold, soul made of coal, one of these nights
Gonna fold, tangled up in blue, depression of the soul
Help me, I can’t surrender, move to higher ground
And expound, sweet emotion in rhyme, you hear the sound
Want ya’ll to get up, and stand up, this bandana rap
With a mullet blowing in the wind, every stanza
I got some killer hands, ain’t talking Poker
It’s Phil, beat by Kils, been already told ya

Hook:
Have You Ever Seen the Rain
Cause The Boys Are Back In Town
Living your Life in The Fast Lane
Only The Good Die Young now

I Got to give it up, the natural high, when I rhyme
More potent than a cocaine line
But its too late, no matter the grind, stayin alive
Kiss and say goodbye, to the guy, timid and shy
Who am I, I’m a rebel rebel, born to run
With a voice that skew treble, always question the devil, devil
I don’t fear the reaper, far as DJ’s like fake bikers
Can’t abide with them weak cuts neither
I’ll take you there with a vision that’s clear, precise
My advice, never rely on tumbling dice
The house always wins, its money for your sins
They taking care of business, you taken for a spin
I been gone for a minute, I can’t expound
On the why, guarantee in 25, I’ll be around
So listen to the music, hear others abuse it
Respect yourself as well as your art, and never lose it

Hook:
Have You Ever Seen the Rain
Cause The Boys Are Back In Town
Living your Life in The Fast Lane
Only The Good Die Young now

Have You Ever Seen the Rain
Cause The Boys Are Back In Town
Living your Life in The Fast Lane
Only The Good Die Young now
