I've choked on the guilt
But you'll choke on me
My taste, & all whom I've tasted

Words, deepest of deep
From neck to my toes in this current that flows from a lie
These are the reasons of how and why that I found order

I'm tuning into the transmission radiating from you

It comes clear thru static
What once was emphatic,
Is a negative twelfth step recovering addict
I'll twist your knife inside this open wound

Heart, weighed best like lead
A dove that grew wings just to be pronounced dead by a boy
Not a man but a boy
A no merit critic that yearns to decree & dictate her order

Wrong enough on record, right enough in the heart
I never thought an infantry could tear us apart
If I'm dead to you now, wait till I fuck her

And I will talk a witness at hand
Without defense
A witness without a witnessing stand

I've choked on the guilt but you'll choke on me in her
You’ll choke on me in her

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”

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.
