Give the band a round of applause join the cause
As me and Man child flap our jaws and rap raw, huh
Got to be optimistic
We twist it different your paradigm is shifted
And it's positively terrific audibly
We flipped it awkwardly
How do we did it done it dang it or do I mean do it
Keep it fluid let's move it
I make people music, music sweet music
Every now and then you have to renew it
Still the formula stays the same we just like to mix the elements
And watch them rearrange because change is good
It keeps perspective keen
But trying to be different don't really mean that you're doing anything
That hasn't been done still
The style is identical to none

[Chorus]
Oh yes and the band plays on
Every where we go it's the same old song
See I know there's really nothing new under the sun
But yet I want to do it like it's never been done

I'm not even sure what's next
I'll let my thoughts collect and do my best to connect
Without begging for your respect
Or maybe just a little what the heck
Now, you enter in new mindset
Yup fresh water gets the mind wet
Are we there yet
On point yet
All that I am or all I can
Until there's nothing left

My gift of gab is sort of sweet a summer night's dream
Capture the elaborate colours that life brings
Paint a vivid picture put the pieces in their places
Ain't many saying A through Z to make their statements
To get your point across in 8 bars is a task
To make them wanna hear more of your point of views advanced
We're up until all hours of the night
Dropping the science that drives us in life
Christ and opportunities to rock the mic

[Chorus: x2]

    My Interpretation

    The liner notes from the album said Manchild never turned his lyrics in. Here's my best guess as to what he's saying:

    I know the ledge I stood up one or too many Times to record The line walking through the next door Breaking your fall Shaking the walls Holding the phone Not taking the call With crap rappers in the back alley Waiting to brawl

    You know I turn the other cheek But see, I've only got two So spit in my face all the time And let's just see what I do Why are you screaming so loud? Are you too scared to listen? Gather the scraps together Build a whole new composition

    You're on a mission Because it's got you this far But you'll be banished to hype man Status like Spliff Star Are we doing what we want? Or we doing all we can? Are we there yet? Or are we stuck with both feet in the sand?

    I plan to overstand the clandestine conquest Set my feet upon the planet rock With the treads you all express Nothing less than groundbreaking Making songs over the primitive Forwarding the future foundation for you to finish it Thank you
