History Repeats

I just don't want to be back in this place again
I mean, I done cried a little
Tried a little, failed a little
I don't wanna do it again
(Oh, I don't wanna do it again)
Do you feel me? (yes, ma'am)
Do you feel me? (yes, ma'am)
Do you feel me? (yes, ma'am)
Do you feel me? (yes, ma'am)
(Ay, do you?)

I mean, I've already been
I came and went
I washed my hands with it
I don't wanna do it again

Don't push me
Push me
Push me
Push me
Hold me in

Hoo, I don't wanna go back here again

History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again (one more time again)
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again (let me jump in, this time now)
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again (come on everybody, one more time again)
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again
History repeats and we defeat ourselves
Come on everybody, one more time again

He Loves Me

But we Christians would not ever intentionally miss church

I don't go to church anymore
I know he still loves me

I know he still loves me when
I'm smoking blunts
Loves me when I'm drinking too much
He loves me then, yeah
He loves me when I do what I want
He loves me, he doesn't judge me
Yes, he loves me

Listen, brothers and sisters, when my soul is weary
I need peace

I don't need to know why
'Cause I know what love means
I don't need forgivin'

And I said to my friend who was visiting me from the other day
He gon' live longer than me and you
'Cause he ain't worried 'bout nothing
He ain't worried 'bout nothing
He ain't worried 'bout nothing
He ain't worried 'bout nothing

I know he still loves me when
I'm smoking blunts
Loves me when I'm drinking too much
He loves me then, yeah!
He loves me when I do what I want
He loves me, he doesn't judge me
Yes, he loves me

Somebodiness does not come from your opinion of God

Georgia

I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia

Georgia, see you don't know it, but
I'm afraid to tell you how I really feel
But show you what I really mean when I'm sayin' hello
Oh, how I feel to watch you come and go

I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia to notice me

Georgia, I think if I got you alone
You could tell I'm being really sincere
And I can't help the way that I was born to be
I ain't no little boy

I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia to notice me
I just want Georgia

Is it unnatural?
Georgia, is it cool?
I wanna tell you that I love you
Georgia, here ya come
Georgia

Stay High

I already feel like doing it again, honey
'Cause once you know, then you know
And you don't wanna go
Back to wherever it is that you come from, yeah

I just want to stay high with you

'Cause where I come from
Everybody frowns and walks around
With that ugly thing on their face
And where I come from
We work hard and grind and hustle all day
(Yes, we do)
There comes a time, there comes a time
At night, where we get to play
And we smile and laugh and jump and clap
And yell and holler and just feel great

I just want to stay high with you
(With you, with you)

So, don't question my state of mind
I'm doing wonderful, just fine, thank you
(Thank you)
Everything is everything and everything is beautiful
(How did you get like that?)
See all I do is keep it cool and don't worry 'bout what everyone is doing
I already feel like doing it again, honey

I just want to stay high
I just want to stay high
I just want to stay high with you

Tomorrow

I found myself free from another
To walk into another
I'm only free as I remember
I stayed busy enough doing the rituals, you know?
And pretend I don't see (Pretend I don't see)
My worth (See my worth)
Changin' hands

I'm not lovin' (I'm not lovin')
I'm returnin' to (I'm returnin' to)
To whatever I wanna do (Whatever I wanna do)
And makin' plans
Tomorrow, I'll be better

Tomorrow, we always talk about tomorrow
But now that we're here
Without liftin' a finger
How you figure
We get lifted
(Oh, oh, oh-oh)

Now that we're here, what you gon' do with it?
(We gonna say, "What the f*ck?")
I feel, but what you gon' show me?
(All the love)
But what do you see?
(Not enough)
Now what stands in the way?
(All of us)
Now what you gon' do 'bout it?
(Get up, get up)

Ow, ow, ow-ow
Mm, mm, mm-mm
And tomorrow, I ain't talkin' 'bout tomorrow
Ooh, ow

Short and Sweet

There are miles between us
Time between us
There is something between us
I may be a fool to dream of you
But, God, it feels so good to dream at all
Something short and sweet
There's always a light over my head for you
I am waiting, I am waiting
Time will always try to kill me

There are mountains between us
There is time between us
Oh, ain't there something between us?
Something short and sweet

I don't care if I should
Do you wanna hurt me?
'Cause I've been hurtin' all alone
It didn't kill me, no
But it wasn't no fun
Come and get you some
Just the beginning
I only want the beginning
We'll give each other all of our best
And then, time can do what it wants with it

There are mountains between us
There is time between us
Oh, ain't there something between us?
Something short and sweet

So, why can't I wait?
Why can't I wait?
Why can't I think?
Why can't I wake without you always appearing?
Oh,, I better not wait too long
'Cause time is gonna kill it
Time is gonna kill it
Time is gonna kill it
Time is gonna kill it

13th Century Metal

I promise to think before I speak
To be wary of who I give my energy to
Because it is needed for a greater cause
Greater than my own pride
And that cause is to spread the enlightenment
Of love, compassion, and humanity
To those who are not touched by its light
I stand to protect and focus myself
In the betterment of my fellow being
We are brothers and sisters, each and every one
I promise to love my enemy
And never become that which is not God
I dedicate my spirit in the service
Of what is good and fair and righteous
Every day I am alive
I am given opportunities to become that which I admire most of others
I am nonviolent
I am a master student and my spirit
Will never be stomped out
I am dedicated to oppose those whose will is to divide us
And who are determined to keep us in the dark ages of fear
I hear the voices of the unheard
Speak for those who cannot speak
And shelter the minds that carry a message
Of peace, love, and prosperity
I repeat, we are all brothers and sisters
I repeat, we are all brothers and sisters
I repeat, we are all brothers and sisters
We are all brothers and sisters
We are all brothers and sisters
We are all brothers and sisters
We
We, us
Wherever you have been
And wherever you will go

(Give it to love)
Just do the best you can (Give it to love)
To be kind (Give it to love)
To your fellow man (Give it to love)
Just try (Give it to love)
And do the, the best you can (Give it to love)
Today (Give it to love)
No matter where you've been (Give it to love)
But you can change (Give it to love)
If you wanna change (Give it to love)
I don't know about you (Give it to love)
But I'm tired of this bullshit (Give it to love)
And I wanna try (Give it to love)
To do the best that I can (Give it to love)
And to have (Give it to love)
A good time (Give it to love)
(Give it to love)
Give it to love (Give it to love)
Give it to love (Give it to love, give it)
(Give it to love, give it to love)
(Give it to love)

Know what I'm sayin'?

Baby

Yeah, this is the check, 1, 2
The check, 3, 4
You know who it is
You see...

I tried to be everything you'd ever want
You'll ever want, you ever would ask me to be, baby
Ha, baby
How could you call me your babe?
You don't provide for me
You don't ride for me
You don't, no, you don't
How could you call me your babe?

I tried to do everything you asked me to
I never thought you ever would ask me to leave, baby
I guess the joke's on me, baby
You never did fail to deceive
I guess that's what I get for being
So quality, babe
Ha, baby

Baby (Baby)
Baby (Baby)
Baby (Baby)
How could you call me your baby?
Come on, pick it back up
Nah, put it back down, up
Baby (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ow)

Goat Head

See, tomatoes are green
And cotton is white
My heroes are black
So why God got blue eyes?

My daddy, he stayed
My grandmama's a maid
My mama was brave
To take me outside
'Cause mama is white
And daddy is black
When I first got made
Guess I made these folks mad
See, I know my colors, see
But what I wanna know is...

Who slashed my dad's tires and put a goat head in the back?
I guess I wasn't s'posed to know that, too bad
I guess I'm not 'posed to mind 'cause I'm brown, I'm not black
But who said that?
See, I'm black, I'm not white
But I'm that, nah, nah, I'm this, right?
I'm one drop of three-fifths, right?

Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back
Goat head in the back

Presence

Come what made, I have you today
And I don't want no more
I don't want tomorrow
Its promises, oh, its ache

'Cause what's this world without you in it?
You make me feel just like I'm a little kid
What's this world got without your spark?
You make me feel so black and alive

La-la-la, la, la, la-la-la, ah
La, la, la

By doin' nothing, I noticed something
I don't want no more
And I've always wanted more
Of just about everything

But what's this world without you in it?
You make me feel just like we're some little kids
What's this life like without your spark?
You make me feel so black and alive

Run to Me

Run, run to me
Run, run to me
And I will be your partner
When you can't stand to be alone
Run, run to me
Run, run to me

It's not funny being free and wild
There's no joy all on your own
There's no weapon against this loneliness
Except my loving arms
If you're feeling like a stranger
Call out in the rain
Know there's a god in waiting
Call out to me

Run, run to me
All the world, let's put it off
They don't deserve your funny charms
They don't make you feel sane
If there's no one left to say goodbye to
If there's no last message to impart
Oh, your tires are left behind you

Run, run, run, run, run to me
Oh, run to me
And I will be your partner
When you can't stand it anymore
