Lyrics

midnite blue

Written By: steve james/robert spence

And it weighs a ton
Tings dem pon me mind like dem jus cyan done
Wanna escape and I’m
Ready to run
But I’ll stand on my steez til the battle is won
Hand to hand combat no gun
Use my intellect
To correct what’s been done
But Sometimes I can’t take no more of this
Payin my dues and being poor I just
Wanna get off da rollercoaster
Live madd chill drive a Testarosa
Pay off my bills from the fruits of my skills(yeah)
Make green like my name was chlorophyll(chuckle)
Now money ain’t the only answer
But it gives me a chance to live my life the way that I like
My beats, my mic, my friends, my wife all gotta be tight
But its hard.

Chorus
The joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
Sometimes it all just feels like one in the same
Can’t take the emotional strain
Of life, but like they say its all part of the game
Yo, the joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
Sometimes it all just feels like one in the same
Whatever I see, whatever I do
Fades into midnite blue, midnite blue…

I tip my glass and toast
For all my peoples that’s close
Sure the Knowledge comes first
Now its Sarge to be your host
On the papyrus my ink spreads like a virus
With my 2 eyes blurred I see with my third iris
Like Osirus
Articulate the artistic
Some got it twisted, I’m a linguistic mystic misfit
You ain’t got nothing in common with Tutankhamen
Sarge be meditating like a shaman
So freeze, I’ll hit the Keys like Alicia
Had a seizure
When I recalled my amnesia
Of past dramas, big battles and small wars
When it comes to beef I’m like a beast on all fours
With the one-two, coming like Sun Tzu, right at you
Peace to Kwan and Kurupt, whaddup do?I see you
Slightly off balance with the them hidden talents
Verbal violence that equivalent to Joseph Stalin’s

Chorus
The joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
Sometimes it all just feels like one in the same
Can’t take the emotional strain
Of life, but like they say its all part of the game
Yo, the joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
Sometimes it all just feels like one in the same
Whatever I see, whatever I do
Fades into midnite blue, midnite blue…

To sum it all up and run it all up and sew it all up
Sometimes I don’t give a (watch it sucker)
(on the one)I’m just sayin yo, that - things could be better (say word immediately)
Word to God, I work hard, I’m a go-getter
However, it seems that the plotin and the scheming
Always rise like the cream and live the life that I’m dreamin about
MC’s with no rhyme skillz
Get a record contract worth 1.7mil?
I know that it sounds like I’m jelly
But I’m just getting stuff of my chest and out my belly
I’m really, not concerned about the next man
Minding people’s business is not the way I flex man
Cashin check man ain’t my main concern
I’m the knowledge, put on this earth to live and learn
And pass what I know onto a shorty or two
Before I fade into midnite blue, midnite blue, midnite blue, midnite blue

Chorus
The joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
Sometimes it all just feels like one in the same
Can’t take the emotional strain
Of life, but like they say its all part of the game
Yo, the joy and the pain
The sun and the rain
Sometimes it all just feels like one in the same
Whatever I see, whatever I do
Fades into midnite blue, midnite blue…
