rat race lyrics – impellitteri

ship shape for change
few maintain 2 brave da pain, and embrace da gain
the pain is life, the pain is death
from first 2 last breath, only time will tell
if da ticket that u get trails 2 heaven or h*ll
for each & every choice there’s a price 2 bare
time throws scenarios, best beware of da brainwash
cranes fight for market share
false prophets get slicker from year 2 year
perception is all when the dice done land
there’ll be a spanner in your plan if u don’t guard your soul
da renk head of hate soon takes its toll
and all because a fool can’t swallow their pride
h*ll terrains grip with perpetual slide
babylonian flames burn bright
first strikes da inna sight, now the woundes roam
grapping on their own coz they know not how
they gonna learn 2 love 2 love 2 learn
we cry 4 the youth spread truth & stand firm

* close to da quest, yes (hot one)
tied to da quest, yes (hot two)
mental benchpress to see me thru (x2)

the junction of life is da here & now
the test ever is the test ever will be
step ahead with your good good self
soldier proceed synchroized 2 da sound of da boom boom bap
don’t fraid the beast flack
they get a run for their last brown penny
we defend em with a p*ssion
the enemy don’t like 2 see world – wide hiphop youth in harmony
with a new found rebel flex & nuff love of self
definition of discipline will soon take flight
show the fake prize & rise 2 da tide
kick down dem door of perception, planet – wide connection
live wire birth 2 a new found worth and a whole world of gerth
we don’t stop big up all brave heart folk
we dare 2 defy babylonian smoke i don’t give a d*mn about ya postcode, know da made
north 2 da southside, east 2 da west
lay down da foundation, start da protest
there’s a million & one ways 2 scan a nice rise
if u get that rise, how will u use that rise
will u seek out ways 2 elevate your own
or will u switch & start dancing tight 2 da snake
inna lake of brimstone for living death sake
warm 2 da wake my sister, my bro
no time for fakes, your inna eyes glow
rend up da signs, dem and fix up fast
i don’t see cred, it don’t see cl*ss
tis a next plain of thought frame we flame
adamant now we aim & burn off dachains
