(Now get up!)

I ain't a fighter, but damn, I'ma beat it up
Don't get me started, cause yo, when I heat it up
I drop rhymes causin a earthquake
Wish for your birthday, cause yo, when the earth shakes
It's catastrophic and no one can stop it
But 'nette, so another must drop it
Cause to me your weapon ain't lethal
To whom it's the sequel
Part 2, the Boss's 'Who's the Boss'
The phase of death
So make a move or call for help
Cause to me it don't mean shit
If you ain't got the punch to make the hit
So walk, set, ready, war
Went nine yards and came up short
Of 10, so just say when
Drop it - now come again
You're just paperthin and I tear ya
So don't breathe too deep cause I hear ya
And if you sissies don't wanna get inta
I break and injure and flip just like a ninja
Couldn't punch mine, so what's the punchline
Beef? Huh, you better wait for lunch, I'm
Not the one to be played
Tried to wipe the map but I stayed
Hard, cause you ain't got the bomb to drop the science
That is, you're just a menace
You must be drugged, higher than Hitler
Delirious, so why it hitcha
Cause I'm the type to walk on water
So remember 'Who's the Boss' and 'Who Gives the Orders'

(Now get up!)

Don't try to rag me, tag me and bag me
You ain't glad, so I gladly
Grant you a wish
Want it? You got it
So go 'head, scram, jet, beat it
You ain't got what it takes, but you need it
To t-o-p A-n-t, yeah, m-e
So break a leg and get hip to what's playin
A rapper shows he can dig what I'm sayin
Or once again we can go head up
And you'll be hearing (now get up!)
Cause I ain't got the time of day to joke
Don't even Lyte up cause I don't smoke
But I'm serious as a heart attack
Run it back

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
