Modern Marvel Lyrics

Artist: Mos Def
Album: The New Danger

<Singing>
I come on by and she start to cry
I can't take it
a brand new excuse does me no use
That won't make it
She's at home with the kids, this is nowhere to live
What can I say?
I know it's surreal but I'm a hard head of steal
That is my way

And he's so strong, so strong
It's like I'm dying
Trying to hold on, my body says Oh No, Oh
Flying, the price that I pay for the game that I play
It will get me old
I'm up in the clouds and I'm spiraling down
Nothing breaks the fall

And he's so strong, so strong
it's like i'm dying
Trying to hold on, my body says Oh No
Out there, flying
Sounds of the sufferers pray

Silent noise of the sufferers pray
They say yes
I come on by and she start to cry
I can't take it
a brand new excuse does me no use
that won't make it
She's at home with the kids, this is no way to live
What can I say?
I know it's real, and I'm a hot head of steal
Black Dante and it's
so strong <repeat 4 times>

I'm out there
flying <repeat 4 times>

Killers, this life this life
Lovers, this life this life
Hustlers, this life this life
Thieves, this life this life
Gamblers, this life this life
Niggas, Crackers, Children, Mothers, Fathers, Lovers, Neighbors, Hungry
Full, The beautiful, the stars, the distance, the close, the stars
The heavens, the floor, the high, the beneath, all, all, everywhere <"this life" throughout>
everywhere, anywhere, somewhere, home

<beat change>
<Rapping>
Come on, this how it goes on
Ghetto people in the world today, Get up
Look alive, breathe
How it goes

Mother, mother, had in her hands her first born son dead in her hands
The whole thing was a setup a scam
they knew it was set up and planned niggas he ??
brother, brother
I don't see no brother hug all i see is thugger hug
get rich and fuck the hug
all in one there's some gun smoke from the hug
lookin for the shorty gun stroke from the hug
that's how they touch the hug
but when i touch the hug, i'll make it bright or black
because I'm bright or black
and i'm so black i'm bright, shine through the blackest night
shine when i'm live, shine via satellite
shout in the hood we get the picture
cause everytime you out in the hood you got photographers with ya
What's going on?
Understand this is real life
This how it goes on, this how it goes on
It keep going on, this how it goes on
Ghetto people look alive get afraid
get involved, remain to breathe
If __was alive now, wow, what would i say to him, where could i start
how could i explain to him, i know the __ probably look strange to him
Would he feel like the day had a place for him?
Global imprisonment sickness indifference
When he said save the babies was we listenin
When he said Mershi Mershi did he really know that decades later we'd still be killin folks
Did he hope, that we would realize
that we the first, son of earth
the mornin stars, the great beyond
we black and proud, we brave and strong
we raise it up, we quiet storm, forever fresh
and keep it on
ghetto people look alive and free and get real
this how it goes on, and you say you say
this how it goes on, and you say you say
this how it goes on
ghetto people look alive and free and breathe
hold the beat, stop the beat, drop the beat <repeat 3 times>
hold the beat, stop the beat, got the beat

There ain't nothin to be afraid of
ghetto people look alive and free and get real
this how it goes on, this how it goes on, keep goin on, this how it goes on
breathe, marvelous, marvelous, marvelous, marvin, martin, marvel
