The Roots - What you want

 

 



-1-

It's what you want babe

It's what you need babe

We bout to give you more

Of what you're lookin for

So it's a secret that's been pent up inside for years

Exclusive type, only for your eyes and ears

You held it in for so long you bursted into tears

The letters spilled slowly across the page like a world premiere

Well lie, the bullshit begins here

The obvious cause, the effects is unclear

The punishment for crimes of the heart can be severe

Though to keep it on the low is a heavy cross to bear

You deep now, submerged with no signs of air

Still your sunken heart thumpin like the kick in a snare

While on the surface, it's all turned into a circus

That's why you're nervous and you got a right to be

Cuz if somebody woulda done that shit to me

I mean, my best man hittin my wife to be

My sentiments exactly would be history

Ya know what I'm sayin

My peoples in the place let's count it off, one-two

It's what you want babe

It's what you need babe

We bout to give you more

Of what you're lookin for

It's do or die, ghettofied

Come alive, feel the vibe

Feelin nice, oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah



-4-

Yo it's like nothing changed, it's all the same thing

The same characters in a book with different names

It's a lot more to lose than you got to gain

You a lot more confused than hip to the game

To peep the script to the game, the price is pain

Men and women get into things, now who's to blame

When everybody whisperin bout whatever took place

And how the fact was denied with a straight face

Them lies, hard to swallow from the bitter taste

Well that's a point in the past that can't be erased

So motivate, though it's hard to let it ride

Or set aside true feelings, underhand dealings

A lost trust, I wonder if we lost us

It's bigger than me and you, it's monstrous

So I'ma just calm down and try to relax

Before I clap the hammer and the hammer got clapped



Repeat -3-



-5-

If we could only flash back and undo our actions

Change what happens, dissect the fractions

A time to rewind and be recorded absent

For real, cuz these memories is photographic

Pornographic, pushin me close to madness

Head heavy like I'm trippin off acid tablets

Yesterday as I recall was all fabulous, I thought so

But now I feel like shots hittin my torso

Still a lot of time and trust in the wrong place

Fought a lot of fights rollin with the wrong ace

Love stronger than pride, we could end disgrace

I need room to think and space to ventilate

What's solid as a rock shall not disentigrate

Thoughts racin like they lunatics on the interstate

For real, ya... it's ill, ya....

My peoples in the place ya'll done heard the song



Repeat -3-
