Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)

So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)

Hey, my nigga, we havin' a wonderful day
And I won't fuck wit' me, why?
'Cause it's the first of the month
And now we smokin', chokin', rollin' blunts
And sippin' on 40 ounces thuggin'
Come, come we got the blunts and rum
From jumpin' all night, we high
Hit up the block to where? East 99
I get wit my nigga to get me some yayo
Double up, nigga, what you need?
We got weed to get P.O.D.'d
Fiend for the green leaves
Double up for the first, fo' sho, better lay low
Because the po-po creep when they roll slow (solo)
Break, if you can't get away, better toss that yayo
Keep your bankroll
Yeah, we havin' a celebration, love to stay high
And you better believe when it's time to grind
I'm down for mine, crime after crime
Finna creep to the pad 'cause mom's got the grub on the grill
If we got the food, ooh, you know it's the first of the month
And, my nigga, we chills for real

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)

Wake up and I see that my sister was already dressed
She said, "I'ma run and go get my stamps
Watch and make sure no one snatches my check," nigga, that's the mailman
Sort through the mail and put it up into me pocket
So I be headed to 99 to get me a dub for 40 duckets
But ain't no bucket, ride that RTA
Hop on the 10 to the Claire
Ready to get 'em up with-a me thugs
And to cash that dum, man, I gotta get paid
Playa, playa, holla, holla
St. Claire got much to offer
Whether it be weed on 93
Or off on the Glock-Glock for some dollars, so
Get a bag of dope and a quarter O, oh
Most all of my niggas got the same, and we gonna roll it all up to smoke
Hittin' that reefer hydro, you know the cut, so fuck them po-po
Toss all that yayo then roll with a pound and stay low
Runnin' through the alley into the melee
Up on the second the sun down
Those run from January, November, December
I'm lovin' the first of the month

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)

Gotta grind, gotta get mine
In the hood that I claim and I slang on that double 9
Gotta find them dubs, gonna get a 40, can a thug get love?
What's up?
Try to slang on my corner, nigga you's a goner
St. Claire niggas don't like that
And sellin' them dummies, makin' that money come back
Nigga get pap-pap
From the first to the fifteenth, niggas smoke plenty weed
But I gotta save, gotta come up
Put my rocks on the cut
When I get high, nigga, blaze that blunt, huh
Time to roll to the pad
Count up my profits and add it to the stash
Gotta watch my back see, for niggas that's tryin' to rob me, fool
But never no shorts or no losses
Dumpin', keepin' this niggas up off me
See, gotta search the whole block, spend a couple of bills
Thugs smoke a lot of weed on the first

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)

Wakin' up feelin' buzzed, up early in the mornin'
Stretchin', I'm yawnin'
Lightweight, bent, chugga-lugga take a fifth to the dome
Instead I got geeked with my trues
But it is the first, so I'm gettin' me hustle on
Hop on the phone, calling up Krayzie Bone
Wanna know, did your O.G. check come? (Sure, put me down)
I'ma hop on the bus with Biz (yo, brother, let's get drunk)
And I'm coming with blunt after blunt of the skunk
Nigga T just put me down
Oh God, how I love when the first come around
Now I be freakin' me Black N Mild
Headed cross town 'cause niggas the first gets celebrated
Rushin' to the block 'cause I want to get faded
Lookin' all wild 'cause I'm gettin' me hair braided
We heavy off into this game
True to the first, just call me that pro slang
Them nickels and dimes and twenties and fifties
The first be the day for the dopeman
Slangin' that cocaine, fool, and I'm working late tonight
And all them fiends be lovin' them thugs
'Cause I got them rocks for them pipes
Come, come with the ease, I gotta get paid
On the first gotta blaze up my spliff
Get live with the Bone Thugs, Poetic Hustlaz and the Graveyard Shift
On the first

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up, get up, get up, get up (so cash your checks and come up)
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up (it's the first of the month)
So get up, get up

    Sad to see racism on this song. I want all of my white middle class tax dollars to go to bone thugs and harmony because this song makes me so happy every first of the month.

    ok to the aryan assholes: piss off.

    This doesn't mean that the song isn't about something incredibly immoral, but there are plenty of songs by white people just as bad, so race has NOTHING to do with it.

    I don't like this song, that's just my opinion, but keep the racist shit somewhere else.

    You can be an great person or an asshole, race doesn't have anything to do with it.

    Thank you.

    Just cos I think it's still appropriate, here's my comments from another page: "Haha, cannibal cowcrap seems like one of those bitter, inbred, trailer-park wite boys who's grown up in poverty becuase his parents have more fingers than brain cells (more brain cells than teeth) and so naturally, it's the Blacks and Jews (and probably Koreans, Irish, Homosexuals, Mexicans and any other minority that's more successful than him) who are at fault, not him for being a fuckwit. He must really shit himself every time he climbs off his sister, walks down the street to buy some booze (accompanied by his 3 legged mongrel Geech, of course) and sees a black guy with a job. Hahahahahaha!"

    This song is where it's at. Sure, they speak about grabbing some welfare checks, but they do it to enjoy life. Smoking some blunts, getting drunk, eating = celebration of life!!! Look at the brighter side of this, people.

    Just listen to the beat, too. Relax, have a good time, and enjoy the good music.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
