    Same story, same target, different time
    Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the bilnd
    Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind
    Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind

    Same story, same target, different time
    Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the blind
    Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind
    Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind

    [Black Thought]
    Yo, talk about paying the ultimate price
    Hurricane been incarcerated all of his life
    Started out at like twelve
    Trapped in a belly of hell
    Grew into a man inside of a cell
    Yo, anger just swell up
    At a early age that develop
    Hot head and now it ain't shit y'all could tell him
    They said he's on a road to become a felon
    But instead he swung blows that'll spilt your melon
    He did his thing and was the king of the ring, undisputed
    Started making noise but they tried to mute it
    They put him through it
    For him to make the system look stupid, [yo]
    They rather look you in the face and shoot it
    And leave your spot looted [or what]
    Or leave your whole life blank futured and caught
    When you scream at it and do it
    With sweat leaking from the outline of your soluid
    Don't understand the point that you at
    Or how the hell you came to it?
    Flashback to images of that night, out in Patterson
    They pulled him over heading home from a gathering
    And when they told him the charge it kind of baffled him
    Murder in the first for the champ, we on that again?

    Chorus

    Hurricane
    Accuse a Hurricane
    Ain't change a damned shame
    It's life for Hurricane, Hurricane

    [Black Thought]
    *overtop of sung chorus*
    Forever, imagine your locked down forever
    Could y'all stand the weather?
    Could you hold it together?
    You tell me that you know the pain
    Yo, imagine if your life was like a hurricane, a hurricane
    Forever, imagine your locked down forever
    Could ya'll stand the weather?
    You built for that weather?
    Yo, know what'm saying?
    Know what'm saying?

    [Common]
    You gotta fight for what you believe in
    Nobody knows the troubles seen
    This flick left me wondering
    'What can become of kings and young kids?'
    Summer dream deferred, incident occured, freedom blurred
    A freedom that would only be retrieved again in words, later on
    The cops, y'all know what they be on
    A nigga's life is like a field that they play upon, away and gone from
    Natural lifer, a soul he had to fight,
    Learn it himself, sleep days, stay up half the night
    Amongst dead man walking, he got afterlife exercising,
    Developing his knack to write
    Never leaving his cell, in this world he trapped himself
    What he loved on the outside world, detached himself
    You know the cards Blacks get dealt by the system
    He drew a picture of freedom with many dimensions
    This picture proved to be bigger than Black and White
    A young soul named Lesra brought him back to life
    It's amazing to a man what a book could do
    And how certain books seem to look for you
    This is the story of a champion's fall and rise
    The story left me wiping my eyes
    Peace Ru


    Chorus

    Hurricane
    Accuse a Hurricane
    Ain't change a damned shame
    It's life for Hurricane, Hurricane

    [Black Thought]
    *overtop of sung chorus*
    Yo, yo, forever, imagine your locked down forever
    Could y'all stand the weather?
    Could you hold it together?
    You tell me that you know the pain
    Yo, imagine if your life was like a hurricane, a hurricane
    Forever and ever yo, locked down forever
    Could you stand the weather?
    Yo, yo i can't even explain the pain
    Just imagine if your life was like a hurricane

    [Mos Def]
    Yes, I am the inescapable, the irresistable,
    The unnegotiable, the unchallenged [who dat?]
    I am time
    I scroll in measurements, control the elements,
    I hold the evidence, I tell the story [say what?]
    I am time
    I know no prejudice, I bare no sentiments
    For wealth or settlement, I move forward [who you?]
    I am time
    You can't recover me, conceal or smuggle me,
    Retreat or run from me, crawl up or under me,
    You can't do much for me besides serve
    Me well and have good dividends returned to you
    Or attempt to kill me off and have me murder you
    Many have wasted me but now they are facing me,
    Treated me unfaithfully and now endure me painfully
    Plaintively, I wait to see what history will shape to be,
    Who's hearts will never die inside the sake of me
    Angel's scribe the page for me,
    Keep a full account of all the names for me
    And make a special mark for Hurricane who (?) patiently

    Chorus

    Hurricane
    Accuse a Hurricane
    Ain't change a damned shame
    It's life for Hurricane, Hurricane

    [Black Thought]
    *overtop of sung chorus*
    Yo, yo, a Hurricane forever,
    Imagine your locked down forever
    Could you stand the weather?
    Could you hold it together?
    I can't even explain the pain
    Imagine if your life was like a hurricane, a hurricane
    Forever, imagine your locked down forever and ever, ever
    Could you hold it together?
    Yo, can't explain the pain with words, know'm saying?
    Just imagine if your life was like a hurricane

    [Verse 4]
    The clouds clashed and the heaven's gave birth to star
    God placed it in a man on the day he was born
    Convicted minutes after, a true natural disaster
    Framed for manslaughter, the Hurricane Carter rising
    From out the south water, like torrential rains
    In the ring no opponent escaped unscathed
    You can't believe the world we live in's injust
    All I see is more proof, there's no place for us
    They had my man Carter locked in a cage, like an animal
    Drive him to the point where the mind work mechanical
    Or works by remote control
    It was done to all of us, they tapped directly into our soul
    Either it's sing-sing, or it's bars around your mind
    There's no where to run, no where to hide
    In a six-by-six a guilty man cries
    For repentance and lost is what innocence is


    Same story, same target, different time
    Cyclical reaction from the prisoners of the bilnd
    Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind
    Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind

    Same story, same target, different time

    Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind

    Chorus

    Hurricane
    Accuse a Hurricane
    Ain't change a damned shame
    It's life for Hurricane, Hurricane

    [Black Thought]
    *overtop of sung chorus*
    Your locked down forever
    Could you stand the weather?
    Could you hold it together?
    I can't even explain the pain, know'm saying?
    Your life was like a hurricane, a hurricane
    Forever, imagine behind bars forever
    Could you stand the weather?
    You built for that? Is you cut for that?
    Don't be telling me that you know the pain
    Your life was like a hurricane, yo

    Same story, same target, different time

    Same story, same target, different time

    Trying to fight time, it's a battle of the mind
    Waiting for redemption, surviving in a bind
