"Melatonin" as written by and Ali Shaheed Muhammad Kamaal Ibn John Fareed....
I said I rarely dream in color, but (they don't know)
And every brother ain't a brother, but (they don't know)
Pop melatonin like they Swedish fish (they don't know)
To give her everything's my dying wish (they don't know)
Roleplay, she plays the mannequin (they don't know)
Raising my hand, teacher says not again (they don't know)
The sun is up, but I feel down again (they don't know)
On just one hand I can count all my friends (they don't know)

The understudy for the star, the show must go on
I'm a beast on a leash, I'm towed from the lawn
Another notch in my belt, the food's getting scarce
Another notch in my belt, she shakes up the stairs
Drink liquid confidence, tequila's our defense
Get rid of this tense, and makes life make some sense
As I come off the fence and break through defense
Anxiety is on the ropes and it's getting intense

Population getting tired now (they don't know)
Everybody wants to inspired now (they don't know)
Racist emails fire out (they don't know)
We did it in the dark, it's coming out (they don't know)
The world is crazy and I cannot sleep, but (they don't know)
Melatonin ain't good enough to eat, but (they don't know)
I read the papers so that I can see what (they don't know)
I rather stay indoors and make a beat, but (they don't know)

My mother said a lot of wise words to me
Her Bible was like her toolie
Peasy headed and unruly I made her think she got to me
Following the trail of reefer, and niggas talking through speakers
Fattest laces, through my sneakers, the rappers were ghetto preachers
Thought I had it so I tried it, for so long I would just hide it
Then I made the crowds say "oh", smoking more and get excited
I was hooked, I couldn't shake it, the more I got the I would take it
Couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, but this life I would not forsaken

I said I rarely dream in color, but (they don't know)
And every brother ain't a brother, but (they don't know)
Pop melatonin like they Swedish fish (they don't know)
To give her everything my dying wish (they don't know)

So many thoughts in my mind making it very hard to unwind
Guess I should take one, just one
So many thoughts in my mind making it very hard to unwind
Guess I should take one, just one
So many thoughts in my mind making it very hard to unwind
Guess I should take one, just one
So many thoughts in my mind making it very hard to unwind
Guess I should take one, just one

This one's for good girls that all gone bad
This one, I'm taking when I feel sad
This one, I'm taking to make me strong
This one, I'm taking so that I'll live long
This one, I'm taking to make me smile
This one, I'm taking to make life worthwhile
This one and that one and those and these
I just want to sleep I want to be at ease
