Truth Is

from Chorro by Burnt



see i believe in one love
but i ain't no hippie
most cats wanna trip
cause they mental shifty
paranoia will distroy your ass
like titans clash
just blown from the gun-powder flash
and it's a shame we fight
so man battles before the wars
broken swords
wounded winded wasted
clever attributes i bring to the light
the sight of things modified
nigga raise your rights
we fuss and fight over words
dumb stares, chicks and liquor
cocaine and dividens so i fully extend
my arm out for some peace
but that shit's a joke
as long as niggas stay broke
and the addicts blow smoke
it's gonna stay drama
flesh eat flesh like jeffery domer
just splurge on osama U.S.
the primma-donna far-west
in the heart of the death we
sun-bathe still stompin' with the
unsaved the mark of my grave

why are they fussin' and fightin'
i wanna know-
truth is: i don't wanna fuck with diablos
word is: forward force nigga that's my motto.
why are they fussin' and fightin'
i wanna know-
truth is: be the roots that'll always prevail
word is: fuckin' petty fights i stay on bail

i seen
beauty in the ugliest ways
made life from the gloomiest days
flat broke but i knew we would bathe
and come clean without a frest-cut fade
and write it down on a note-book page
it's that simple
however the mind ain't
we blank out for cash flows
waitin' for the thick fine ass to do the damn flow
in that case i hate to fuck up your show
you've been a boss for three years in a row
wakie wakie
bottom ends turn to days
i could only put efforts away from self in so many ways
only this many times; that many motivational lines
before i call it quits and focus on what's mine
but i ain't athiest
the most high got a plan
when i hear that solemn call
i'm gonna take my stand
karmic basis is the evolution balance of things
as the day brings light you're rockin' with two kings.
