There was a shift in the atmosphere
5 o’clock rush hour met end of the world destruction
Cars layered each other like downed dominoes
Bitterness blew through the air
I could hear the screams grow louder as the impetus of impending anarchy settled in.
Fates were set
The odds were never in our favor
It was too late to leave
Skid marks laced the streets
Glass patterned the ground, reflecting the flames that burned around
My hands.. sweaty from the tears that leaked my eyes, my car jerked.
But these are their stories….
There was a rattling and shaking
I broke composure
Through mine eyes I could see the fire rising higher as we broke the leash
Compete against these streets for the position
Jocking forward with no room for error
They all feast on each other’s fumes
Exhausted from the inner cries of their bellies half empty from the acid tears of destruction that melted the street they were meant to stand on
Smoke screening through life no alarm
Pedal to the medal that they… cock back in they hands
As they stand up in their sun roof top screaming I’m the man
But empty dreams get lost in the smoke screen
Sucked into the pavement
As they ride big toys down the street.
Dem boys need to eat.
They feastin for adventure
And your naivety is just a snack if you thinkin this is the highway to freedom
Hell on Earth. I feel the heat rising from the asphalt cracking under pressure from the strain of holding up ignorance
Is you hearin it?
Cuz your BMI ain’t Body Mass Index. It’s Be. More. Intelligent.
I’m tellin it.
And if you think you gone make it show me proof
Cuz 99 thinking they ain’t got a problem with one
We burned rubber to get to a destination that ain’t even got no exit. Oblivious to our surroundings, cruising on autopilot & think we jettin it
They told us the sky was the limit so we decided to take to the streets instead
Too afraid to shoot for the moon cuz the stars were too bright ahead.
I think too much flying rubber done blind his vision…
Yea, my generation went backwards
So we can’t be surprised when the hands on the clock’s gear shifts reverse
And the cars spin out of…
When I opened my eyes the only thing in sight was the death I nearly escaped.
The smoke screen don’t catch everything
