Babylon

OutKastBuy this song

I came into this world high as a bird
From second hand cocaine powder
I know it sounds absurd
I never tooted but its in my veins  While the rest of the country bungies off bridges  Without no snap back
And bitches they say they need that
To shake they fannies in the ass clubs 
They go the other route
Turn each other out
Burn each other out
 Where a bona fide nigga like me
Can't even get no back rub these days
Ain't that bleak on they part
But let me hold it down, cause they shut you down
When you speak from your heart 
Now that's hard
 While we ranting and raving bout gats
Nigga, they made them gats
They got some shit that'll blow out our backs 
From where they stay at

Ooh, I fear the battle's just begun 
Ooh, though we're here someday we will be gone
So I'm hoping, wishing, praying 
To keep my faith in you, in you

I'm fascinated by the way yo
 Nipples peak at me through yo blouse  Freaky me, freaky you
Can't help but be aroused 
'Scuse me, Lord lustful thinking
But that's the way we was brought up
 Sneaking to watch Playboy at night 
We all must be caught up in worldly ways
 Chemistry between boys and girls 
Is a lot like when we went to the woods 
And laid with the squirrels  During P.E., we'd be
 Exploring each others privates
 Hunching with all our clothes on
 Until we felt excited then, ah
Oh now its on from here on out
Put yo hands in the atmosphere 
If you know what I'm talking bout
Now if too harsh then walk on out
And I'll see you on the next song
They call it horny  Because its devilish 
Now see we dead wrong 

Ooh, I fear the battle's just begun 
Ooh, though we're here someday we will be gone
So I'm hoping, wishing, praying 
To keep my faith in you, in you

 People don't know the stress I'm dealing with day to day
 Speaking about the feeling I'm possessing for Renee  Moping around and wondering where she stay
Saw her last that she lay
Give it another day I say
But the lord he taketh away
Now give it back lawd
 Cause that's like backboards without the rims
Me and my auntie was tight like Southwest  Before the pinks moved in
Like the niggas who owned the liquor store
 Crack cocaine, pimps and whores  Living up on this earth  Before a nigga like daddy was born
But they be making it seem
That my music and crime are a team
But I'm speaking the truth not dreams 
So what in the fuck they mean
My lyrics ain't clean 

Ooh, I fear the battle's just begun 
Ooh, though we're here someday we will be gone
So I'm hoping, wishing, praying 
To keep my faith in you, in you

Ooh, I fear the battle's just begun 
Ooh, though we're here someday we will be gone
So I'm hoping, wishing, praying 
To keep my faith in you, in you
