Now a lot of people think this is easy as it looks
Books and books of rhyme concepts and hooks
Session to session to get thoughts manifested
Stressin' and stressin' to hit the world with a blessin'

Lot of people often ask, "Puba how you givin' back?"
The way I give back is through the knowledge of my raps
like a gem, for all my people caught out on a limb
who be givin' in, caught out on a stem, who don't want to win

"I'm feelin' you I know you gettin' down like that
but what I'm sayin' Dog is let me hold a little somethin' black!
I'll hit you back!" come on dead that, that's the tenth time
I heard that -- all you know is gimme I work hard for every penny

that I make -- video and tape
LP and CD, if I fall, you feedin' me?
No dough to spread, always keep a level head
Long as my seeds get fed, it won't go to my head, so..

"Don't let it go your head, no!"
Everybody love a star, when he on top
"Don't don't let it go your head, no!"
Nobody comes around when the star start to drop

"Don't let it go your head, no!"
Strive to help others who help themselves
"Don't let it go your head, no no no no no!"
Knowledge of self, and good health and wealth

The ladies are datin', no question but you can't tell her that
'Cause subconciously, we put our hand out
Like I'm that ATM cat, drop me off at Chase
Earring in the navel like you sex-you-al

Royalty, while the whole loyalty means (shit)
Get wreck in the kitchen like she were on the cooking channel
and didn't have a (nigga) in the car do'
Got ??? she's a mother to be, I hope they're twins

Give me a whole tribe
and be as sexy as Janet was on the cover of Vibe
She slick talk, playin' you
well she got a girlfriend that used to tap

back when, so she always worryin' with you
Tell her hold it down ma, I give you high ranks
Sometimes you wild but I guess that's your style
If you lay up in my high rise, will you stay wise?

Will the slave thighs open your eyes, girl..
"Don't let it go your head, no!"
Don't believe those jealous type cats
"Don't don't let it go your head, no!"

Cause I'm the one makin' some late night cash
"Don't let it go your head, no!"
I told you girl my home is my castle
"Don't let it go your head, no no no no no!"

Understand it won't be no hassle

I heard your single on the battle of the beats
It won five nights, I bet you had the time of your life
Workin' so hard, and so long, to make a record
Finally to make a song people respected

Collect the dough at a show as you sip the Mo'
Now you hittin' the flo', you never hit befo'
Got you trippin', how much better could it get?
Got the leather with the work check, all up in the whip

They're all legitimate, callin' it what it's really not
This is just one single you got, that's really hot
Tomorrow it could bust just like a blood clot
Leave you in the dust with your body to rot

Another party to rock, if it's you or if it's me
it doesn't matter cause it just won't stop
Don't let your gray matter pop
'Cause when you release the album

If they don't cop, you gonna get dropped, so..
"Don't let it go your head, no!"
'Cause one single don't make you a hit
"Don't don't let it go your head, no!"

Stay true to who you are don't never forget
"Don't let it go your head, no!"
Keep your feet on solid ground
"Don't let it go your head, no no no no no!"

'Cause what goes up, must come down, uhh
"Don't let it go your head, no!"
"Don't don't let it go your head, no!"
"Don't let it go your head, no!"
"Don't let it go your head, no no no no no!"

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
