Take Me Away
by Ice Cube



Today was a good day
Know what? Sometimes I just get on my knees
You know what I mean?
And pray to the Man with the master plan
To swoop on down on that mothership
Scoop a nigga up

Lord, have mercy, my people so thirsty
Come, feed 'em, either Jesus or Muhammad
All we get is vomit, come like a comet
Put it in my brain, Lord, put it in my stomach

Only you can run it, I'ma learn from it
Do what I gotta do, try not to plummet
America eats its youth like reptiles
Don't worry 'bout tomorrow, let's get this right now

They wanna run us in the ground
Educate yourself before they dumb you down
Get your money boy, the legal way
Beat 'em with they own bullshit if you may

Now rich white men, they got the world fucked up
Why should I give a fuck about a Styrofoam cup?
Environmental scene, I'll keep it clean
But if I go green, you know what I mean, bitch

Take me away from these people
Take me away from these people
Take me away
Take me away from these people
Take me away from these people

Ice Cube for President
Let's just do it for the hell of it
See how I'd run the government, make money irrelevant
I might tell a chick, it's illegal to be celibate

Secret Service don't know where the hell I went
Sorry y'all, I had to fuck a super delegate
Dream ticket, Ice Cube and Obama
American dream, Ice Cube and yo' mama

The Terminator, are you Sarakana?
Arnold Schwarzenegger, can kill who he wanna
In California, they strap you to a gurney
And murder yo' ass in front of your attorney

Do you really wanna take this journey?
Ain't scared of none of y'all motherfuckers like Bernie
Mac step back, step back, I got the Mac-11
Unlike Obama, I'ma have to back my reverend

Take me away from these people
Take me away from these people
Take me away
Take me away from these people
Take me away from these people

Now the Lord is my shepherd, my flow is respected
Worldwide, from the West I got to rep it
So please check it, 'cause my style is infected
With the virus, Ice Cube's the Osiris

I bail through, they wanna put me up in Bellevue
'Cause my point of view is not red, white and blue
It's black and blue residue
I know what crack can do to a whole fuckin' avenue

Speak on it and they'll get mad at you
You think I do this bullshit for your gratitude?
I'm a Nigga With a Attitude
I'ma do what I gotta do just to change my latitude

Pimp the system, rollin' with my diamonds glistenin'
And niggaz listenin' from your local prison
I'm a prism, your only vision is a rainbow
In the sky when I spit the ism, come on

Take me away from these people
Take me away
Take me away from these people
Take me away

Take me away from these people
Take me away
Take me away from these people
