Sing For The Moment


Curtain Call: The Hits [Deluxe Edition]

[Verse 1]

These ideas are nightmares to white parents
Whose worst fear is a child with dyed hair
And who likes earrings
Like whatever they say has no bearing,
it's so scary
In a house that allows no swearing
To see him walking around with his headphones blaring
Alone in his own zone, cold and he don't care
He's a problem child
And what bothers him all comes out, when he talks about
His fuckin' dad walkin' out

'Cause he just hates him so bad that he blocks him out
If he ever saw him again he'd probably knock him out
His thoughts are whacked,
he's mad so he's talkin' back
Talkin' black, brainwashed from rock and rap
He sags his pants, do-rags and a stocking cap
His step-father hit him, so he socked him back,
and broke his nose
His house is a broken home,
there's no control,
he just let's his emotions go...

{C'mon}, sing with me, {sing}, sing for the years
{Sing it}, sing for the laughter, sing for the tears, {c'mon)
Sing it with me, just for today,
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...

[Verse 2]
Entertainment is changin', intertwinin' with gangsta's
In the land of the killers, a sinner's mind is a sanctum
Holy or unholy, only have one homie
Only this gun, lonely cause don't anyone know me
Yet everybody just feels like they can relate,
I guess words are a mothafucka
They can be great or they can degrade,
Or even worse they can teach hate
It's like these kids hang on every single statement we make
Like they worship us,
Plus all the stores ship us platinum
Now how the fuck did this metamorphosis happen
From standin' on corners and porches just rappin'
To havin' a fortune, no more kissin' ass

But then these critics crucify you,
journalists try to burn you
Fans turn on you,
attorneys all want a turn at you
To get they hands on every dime you have,
They want you to lose your mind every time you mad
So they can try to make you out to look like a loose cannon
Any dispute won't hesitate to produce handguns
That's why these prosecutors wanna convict me,
Strictly just to get me off of these streets quickly
But all their kids be listenin' to me religiously,
So I'm signin' cd's while police fingerprint me
They're for the judge's daughter but his grudge is against me
If I'm such a fuckin' menace, this shit doesn't make sense Pete

It's all political,
If my music is literal, and I'm a criminal
How the fuck can I raise a little girl
I couldn't, I wouldn't be fit to
You're full of shit too, Guerrera,
that was a fist that hit you...


[Verse 3]
They say music can alter moods and talk to you
Well can it load a gun up for you, and cock it too?
Well if it can, then the next time you assault a dude
Just tell the judge it was my fault and I'll get sued

See what these kids do is hear about us totin' pistols
And they want to get one cause they think the shit's cool
Not knowin' we really just protectin' ourselves,
We entertainers!
Of course the shit's affectin' our sales, you ignoramus!

But music is reflection of self, we just explain it,
And then we get our checks in the mail
It's fucked up, ain't it?
How we can come from practically nothing
to being able to have any fuckin' thing that we wanted

That's why we sing for these kids, who don't have a thing
Except for a dream, and a fuckin' rap magazine
Who post pin-up pictures on their walls all day long
Idolize they favorite rappers and know all they songs

Or for anyone who's ever been through shit in their lives
Till they sit and they cry at night wishin' they'd die
Till they throw on a rap record and they sit, and they vibe
We're nothin' to you but we're the fuckin' shit in they eyes

That's why we seize the moment
Try to freeze it and own it,
squeeze it and hold it
Cause we consider these minutes golden
And maybe they'll admit it when we're gone
Just let our spirits live on
through our lyrics that you hear in our songs and we can...
