"The Time ft. Marty J" as written by Andre Gray, Iris James, Kunley Mccarthy, Andrew Powell and Prince Hinds....
Well I don't rhyme over guitars often
but I'm older now, maybe I'll soften
used to not give a fuck and I still don't
I don't mean sniffin' blow or pill poppin
if I said it ya'll, it was true-ue
to what I was in new-ew
I done a lot of dirt, a whole pot of dirt
I even shot a jerk - He's through!
Wake up wake up wake up it's a stickup
get 'em up, stand up, pick it up
back on the track like a relapse
me I'm innocent though
I'm talking beats and raps
not cheap preach with weaves and craps
I don't Hollywood shuffle with squares in drag
no need to preach to the mass
but I speak like a pro 'cause I know what I have now...
HOOK:
(And all the people say...)
OH-OH, OH-OH
NOW THAT I KNOW THE TIME IS DIFFERENT, I AIN'T MISSING EVERYDAY
(And all the people say...)
OH-OH, OH-OH
STAY ON MY TOES, GET BY
THEY'RE LISTENING, IF YOU'RE WITH ME WON'T YOU SAY?
Pump the brakes, fix my mistakes
they get erased like chicks on Myspace
dot com 'cause I'm on some next shit
positive energy, there's no deficit
fresh air? Well here's a breath of it
out west where the rest got half they spit
college boys, go on and pack a dip
me myself and I gon' stack a grip
with Marty J and he's on back of this
give us a party, player, we gon' crack the whip
no hiss in any format to flip
not that old 4 track, backpackin' jackin
what was underground, inventive now is just in fashion
adjust your passion
the crowd jump, the house still slappin
I just know more now, go on boy
ask 'em...
[HOOK]
(MARTY J)
Had my back against the wall
my shadow weighed a ton
I never learned to crawl
before I tried to run
had me on my knees
praying for the sun
couldn't see a thing except all the harm that I'd done
sample: the older I get man, the dumber that I was (x4)

I heard don't throw in the towel
believe in yourself, you can achieve
keep your eye on the prize
and your hands in the sky
and we all gonna rise now

[HOOK]
