    Bored at work listening to my music. Came across like this elsewhere and thought it would be a good way to pass the time.

    " When mi gun pop off/mi naw hear no talk/Me no see no head/ everybody dead/blood slowly spread/ paint the city red"

    This stuck out to me-

    Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
    Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street


    - Bob Dylan- Things Have Changed

    I like that idea of love.

    Woe to the downpressors:
    They'll eat the bread of sorrow!
    Woe to the downpressors:
    They'll eat the bread of sad tomorrow!
    Woe to the downpressors:
    They'll eat the bread of sorrow!
    Oh, yeah-eah! Oh, yeah-eah-eah-eah!

    The Projects (Pjays) :

    "It may take a long time, but my house will last forever
    - and it will have been worth it.
    What are you going to build your house with?"

    [Dove]
    Yo I'm stayin where we gettin crazy love
    My noisy neighbors live just above me
    up in 13-A, there's drama e'ryday
    The Super say he gon' fix the heat for sure
    Tchk, I done heard it five times before
    Three locks on every door
    - cause some folks got the tendency to take
    It ain't Beverly Hills, more like Stephanie Mills
    I never knew love like this could ever exist
    Four corners in your metropolis
    Yo it's the PJays pah!
    We exquisite like cars made in foreign
    See ain't a day out here, ever boring
    Where gunshots keep you up instead of heavy snoring
    Pipes dripping, instead of rivers pouring
    The elevator's broken down (daaaamn!)
    and man I'm needin a lift
    Thank God we don't stay up on the twenty-fifth
    - floor, yo we ain't always at war
    It's a lot about the Projects I do adore

    Chorus: Dove, Del

    But you wouldn't understand it
    The PJays is like another planet
    Heavy like granite
    You wouldn't understand it
    The cops will catch you drawers down
    Red-handed, it's outlandish
    But you wouldn't understand it
    The PJays is like another planet
    You wouldn't understand it
    The cops will catch you drawers down
    Red-handed, it's outlandish
    "Yo it's the PJays.."
    {"cau.. cause where I come from.."}
    {"where we live is called the Projects" -> Pos}
    ".. The PJays.."
    {"cau.. cause where I come from.."}
    {"you might-might-might, might get done..")
    ".. The PJays.."
    {"cau.. cause where I come from.."}
    {"where we live is called the Projects" -> Pos}
    ".. The PJays.."
    {"cau.. cause where I come from.."}
    {"What was that you said?"}

    [Del the Funky Homosapien]
    Come to our projects bout fo' in the morning
    So I can tell you what be goin on there
    One block gunshots some hot stuff
    Sell it to you for a buck, boy that ain't enough!
    (C'mon) Handcuffs on your brotherman; my wife's wonderin
    When you gonna fix that tenant's plumbing man?
    I'm tired - this ghetto's cool, but it's on fire
    I see this fool with a crack pipe, lookin wired
    Hookers for hire (what?) look at the plywood (look!)
    on the building where termites is living (EW)
    My wife sleeps peacefully, it ain't easy to me
    cause I'm tripping off these peoples with they thievery
    Black white chicano - hell if I know
    Every guy know about the stolen cell phone
    I got the hook-up - police got me shook-up
    in court, can't even fart
    It's okay though, I got the building, that pay dough
    But some tenants act like they can say no (hey)
    I'm gettin older in my years
    Feel me? I got a folder worth of fears (yup)
    But it's cool, we gotta make it better (make it better)
    Don't take my sweater (c'mon) y'all make my head hurt
    I ain't even gonna finish this song, it's too long
    I'ma watch Cops, in my La-Z-Boy, in my thong

    The Mills Brothers - Smoke Rings

    Tell me where do they go
    These smoke rings I blow each night
    What do they do these circles of blue and white
    Why do they seem to picture a dream of love
    Why do they fade my phantom parade of love

    Puff puff puff puff your cares away
    Puff puff puff night and day
    Blow blow them through the air silky little rings
    Those little smoke rings I love take me above with you

    Puff puff puff puff your cares away
    Puff puff puff night and day
    Blow blow them through the air silky little rings
    Those little smoke rings I love please take me above
    Take me with you

    Nice! KD Lang's version of that tune is lovely.

    Listening to the rootsrockreggae station. Wailing Souls' Very Well. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with this one and do not know the lyrics. The lead singer sounds a little like Bob Marley.

    "So Sorry"

    I'm sorry
    Two words I always think
    After you've gone
    When I realize I was acting all wrong

    So selfish
    Two words that could describe
    Oh actions of mine
    When patience is in short supply

    We don't need to say goodbye
    We don't need to fight and cry
    Oh we, we could hold each other tight tonight

    We're so helpless
    We're slaves to our impulses
    We're afraid of our emotions
    And no one knows where the shore is
    We're divided by the ocean
    And the only thing I know is
    That the answer isn't for us
    No the answer isn't for us

    I'm sorry
    Two words I always think
    Oh after you've gone
    When I realize I was acting all wrong

    We don't need to say goodbye
    We don't need to fight and cry
    We, we could hold each other tight tonight
    Tonight
    Tonight
    Tonight
    Tonight...

    One, Two, One, Two, Three, Four
    We must talk in every telephone, get eaten off the web
    We must rip out all the epilogues from the books we have read
    And to the face of every criminal strapped firmly to a chair
    We must stare, we must stare, we must stare.

    We must take all of the medicines too expensive now to sell
    Set fire to the preacher who is promising us hell
    And in the ear of every anarchist that sleeps but doesn't dream
    We must sing, we must sing, we must sing.

    And it'll go like this, alright
    While my mother waters plants my father loads his gun.
    He says, "Death will give us back to God,
    just like the setting sun
    is returned to the lonesome ocean."

    And then they splashed into the deep blue sea.
    (Oh,)It was a wonderful splash.

    We must blend into the choir, sing as static with the whole,
    We must memorize nine numbers and deny we have a soul,
    And to this endless race for property and privilege to be won
    We must run, we must run, we must run.

    We must hang up in the belfry where the bats in moonlight laugh
    We must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past
    And (in)to the caverns of tomorrow with just our flashlights and our love
    We must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge.

    And then we'll get down there,
    way down to the very bottom of everything
    and then we'll see it, oh we'll see it, we'll see it, we'll see it.

    Oh my morning's coming back
    The whole world's waking up
    Oh the city bus is swimming past.
    I'm happy just because
    I found out I am really no one.
