lyrics

This is what it is, what it was, what it could be
This is real hip hop, this is what it should be
The secrets of life from the Bean to the Bay
Real emcees with something to say
This is what it is, what it was, what it could be
This is real hip hop, this is what it should be
The secrets of life from the Bean to the Bay
My man Lyrics Born's got something to say

The secrets of life are well revealed to the eye
If you seek deeply inside don't over think it and try
To find meaning in places where it just don't reside
Or try appealing to people with whom you just don't jive
Wasted oh so much time and energy
Trying to appeal to folks that just don't connect with me
Tried to find chemistry where it don't exist essentially
All because I have this need to be everything
At all times to all people everywhere
When all I really needed was always there but I ignored it
Can't be Voltaire and the National Enquirer at the same damn time
Gotta make up your mind and go there
It's like you're trying to be funny to somebody
Who don't really understand your brand of comedy
No matter how many times you tell the joke they won't get it
You're over their heads with it their heads is bed-ridden
I'm getting it in I can't be anything less than exquisite
Going extra innings and I'm clinching the pennant
Dumb it down? Y'all tripping
Y'all need to smarten up and quit bed-wetting!

This is what it is, what it was, what it could be
This is real hip hop, this is what it should be
The secrets of life from the Bean to the Bay
Real emcees with something to say
This is what it is, what it was, what it could be
This is real hip hop, this is what it should be
The secrets of life from the Bean to the Bay
What's up Kabir? Yeah I got something to say...

Life is beautiful and yet so tragic,
Unusual maniacal magic
A never-ending highway watch it turn and twist
An endless supply of decisions and risk
Life can be wonderful yet so unfair
A nightmare making you scared to care
And even though the sorrow from your loss is looming
Never forget that pain is so human
Life is rewarding and yet so challenging,
A see-saw ride each side needs balancing
Developing your talents in modern-day skills
So get your hustle on and pay those bills
Life is a waterfall continuously flowing
It feels more precious as I watch my daughters growing
So I gotta keep working, minimize what I'm owing,
Drifting upstream with the current as I'm rowing

This is what it is, what it was, what it could be
This is real hip hop, this is what it should be
The secrets of life from the Bean to the Bay
Real emcees with something to say
This is what it is, what it was, what it could be
This is real hip hop, this is what it should be
The secrets of life from the Bean to the Bay
Kabir and Lyrics Born we're paving the way.....
