Somethin’s goin on
That’s got me feelin this way
Something’s goin on
It’s got me goin insane.
2 dollars in my pockets, broke becomes the trouble man
The song up on my radio, don’t wanna hear the struggling
Government cheese bubbling, stove top on the oven
And once again I’m trying to make the ends meet coupling*
Instead, I’m recovering from the wounds of puzzling/ prices rising
Hit the roof, as my wages cutting.
When i need a voice of reason, ‘stead standin no chance
and the radio goes, “we just wanna make you dance”**
(we just wanna make you dance, we just wanna make you dance, we just wanna make you dance, we just wanna make you dance)
I’m feeling agitated, compass with no direction
No rubberband man, but elastic keep stretching
Voice becomes a weapon, choices turning slim
So heavy on my mind, where’s the levy to unhinge?*
Unlocked and loaded, blasting in the open
Lost inside a promised land, found to be broken
Hell or high water, with the current of the tide
I know I ain’t singin, but I’ll do it through the rhymes.**
Fallen on hard times, hard to find a job
Everyday I ask if my dignity is robbed
American dream, most stolen to inception
And when we wake up, we believe the deception
Like “is the top still spinning?”
Am I winning in the end?
Is where I plan my beginning.
Broke when I wrote it, so you know it’s living proof frustrated
What the hell I’mma do?
