I sit alone in my four-cornered room staring at candles
Oh that sh*it is on?
Let me drop some sh*it like this here, real smooth
At night I can’t sleep, I toss and turn
Candlesticks in the dark, visions of bodies being burned
Four walls just staring at a n*gga
I’m paranoid, sleeping with my finger on the trigger
My mother’s always stressin’ I ain’t living right
But I ain’t goin’ out without a fight
See, every time my eyes close
I start sweating and blood starts coming out my nose
It’s somebody watching the Ak’
But I don’t know who it is so I’m watching my back
I can see him when I’m deep in the covers
When I awake I don’t see the motherf*cker
He owns a black hat like I own
A black suit and a cane like my own
Some might say take a chill, B
But f*ck that sh*it, there’s a n*gga trying to kill me
I’m popping in the clip when the wind blows
Every twenty seconds got me peeping out my window
Investigating the joint for traps
Checking my telephone for taps
I’m staring at the woman on the corner
It’s f*cked up when your mind’s playing tricks on ya
I make big money
I drive big cars
Everybody know me
It’s like I’m a movie star
But late at night something ain’t right
I feel I’m being tailed by the same sucker’s headlights
Is it that fool that I ran off the block
Or is it that n*gga last week that I shot
Or is it the one I beat for five thousand dollars
Thought he had caine but it was Gold Medal flour
Reached under my seat, grabbed my popper for the suckers
Ain’t no use to me lying
I was scareder than a motherf*cker
Hooked a left into Popeye’s and bailed out quick
If it’s going down let’s get this sh*it over with
Here they come just like I figured
I got my hand on the motherf*cking trigger
What I saw’ll make your ass start giggling
Three blind, crippled and crazy senior citizens
I live by the sword
I take my boys everywhere I go because I’m paranoid
I keep looking over my shoulder and peeping around corners
My mind is playing tricks on me
Day by day it’s more impossible to cope
I feel like I’m the one that’s doing dope
Can’t keep a steady hand because I’m nervous
Every Sunday morning I’m in service
Praying for forgiveness
And trying to find an exit out the business
I know the Lord is lookin’ at me
But yet and still it’s hard for me to feel happy
I often drift when I drive
Having fatal thoughts of suicide
Bang and get it over with
And then I’m worry-free, but that’s bullsh*it
I got a little boy to look after
And if I died then my child would be a bastard
I had a woman down with me
But to me it seemed like she was down to get me
She helped me out in this sh*it
But to me she was just another b*tch
Now she’s back with her mother
Now I’m realizing that I love her
Now I’m feeling lonely
My mind is playing tricks on me
This year Halloween fell on a weekend
Me and Geto Boys are trick-or-treating
Robbing little kids for bags
Till a old man got behind our a*s
So we speeded up the pace
Took a look back and he was right before our face
He’d be in for a squabble no doubt
So I swung and hit the n*gga in his mouth
He was going down we figured
But this wasn’t no ordinary n*gga
He stood about six or seven feet
Now that’s the n*gga I’d be seeing in my sleep
So we triple-teamed on him
Dropping them motherf*cking B’s on him
The more I swung, the more blood flew
Then he disappeared and my boys disappeared too
Then I felt just like a fiend
It wasn’t even close to Halloween
It was dark as f*ck on the streets
My hands were all bloody, from punching on the concrete
God damn homey
My mind is playing tricks on me

  17. I had a dream recently I was stuck in a dream with an unknown African friend. We both had the instrumental to this song stuck in our head. We looked constantly for the source of this song so we could decipher the lyrics and find out what this song was called, but every clue we got disappeared once we got close to it. It was if my mind was playing a game with me in this dream. I tried searching for the song on my phone in my dream but could never find it. Finally, I woke up. I tried searching for the song again, and finally the name of the song came to mind. I haven't heard "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" for at least a year prior to this dream and forgot it existed until my mind reminded me.

  18. Woke up to this in my head and turned it on.

  24. Color of Money

    Going around in circles, chasing after one another for the color of money, taking chances or welfare through inter-connecting passages , crossroads and windows trying to control the animal in one from the pit (hole) of debt of desire an emotions in the matrix.

    Dollar , dollar , Dollar Bills

    Pressing the economics further, less than rich is most in debt, an the back bone of the rich, and the flesh and blood for the animal, all in the name of(what) property values. The color of money makes people go wild (mad) an adds to the fire. Let me give it to you in other terms, terms you can understand. They cut it like Bolvin coca, Afghani opium and Libyan oil, cut like silver and gold. Lords that have strings tied to the money, an every dollar in its web hooking the foolish fish in the sea into its financial threshold.

    Bending indexes, the color of money, dollars, dollar bills and currencies on a spectrum in a temple dimension, attracting interest . A twenty/eighty cut is knot well/fare, it cuts like a knife, a double edge sword, it gives with one and takes with two, we want face value, the whole in one, bar , one over one, knot promises or the color of money, that s blinding you. Color blind, and blind eyes, so listen . Its a figment of your imagination that's running wild like a bull, a shift to red , so let me give you the 20/20, the whole 9/1/1 doppler tax free fix in the city, that never sleeps.

  25. The Truth is Rich and the one who has it and with it , so share it, share alike and receive….
