this was written in '02 right after the good homie passed away...

(Verse 1)
I find myself driftin'
In and out of different time spaces
...To different
Places in my mind
Jaded translations of time
I wish the past could be the present
But my remembrance
Is all that I have left of it
So I'll never forget it
Or leave it neglected
Instead I place it next to my heart
So I can keep it protected
It's my weapon
When I need a lesson
Just close my eyes and get blessed
With a peaceful reflection
My recollection
Takes me back to those lessons
The building blocks,
The seeds that turn to roots
And if they're nurtured with care,
They're guaranteed to bear fruits
And that's the truth
Cuzz I remember as a youth
With baby wisdom,
I'd try to pay attention
But sometimes I'd vaguely listen
And miss an
Oppurtunity to gain
But minds open in time
For me it was the same,
I guess it must be God's design
I rewind to that time
And I find
All the potential
Just learning how to rhyme
And make sense on instrumentals
While attempting to strenthen our mental
It's evidential
It'd eventually happen
And gradually rappin'
Became the main way
For us to be entertained
A couple turntables, a mixer, and a mic
And you know Steven Cho
Always had a spliff to light
Just get lifted and unite
Rippin' it all night,
Or at least until my Pops said so
I'd be like "Yo, It's all bad, so let's go"
Some of us would go
Our seperate ways, but we'd all still know
That something special was in store for tomorrow...

(Hook)
Just looking back to when
These events were happenin'
Me and all your friends
Wish that we could see you again
Just looking back to then
It can't get dim
The memories live in my mind
And together they blend

(Verse 2)
It seems like it was yesterday
But times movin' so fast it gets away
And i get lost in thought
And watch it replay
I reminisce about us chillin' and buildin'
Makin' tracks with a mic tacked
To the ceiling
Who cared about appealing?
it was all about the love and havin' fun
Sharpen tongues
Spitting jewelz at one another
Till we all become one
Within ourselves and Mother Earth
Only then would we be given rebirth
And find out
What true Brotherhood's worth
Day by day we grew stronger
Accumulatin' knowledge to decipher
The wrong from the right
And all that we might ponder
Conversatin' deep about life
Tryin' to see the true reality
Cuzz for the first time,
We can see through the lies
And realize
It's time to break free
We need to shed light
Emancipate the blinded eyes
So we can make their heads right
Create a domino effect of resurrection
Blessin'
The next man in line
By simply answerin' his questions
In time we had a family of righteous brothers
And they were like no others
So that's how I discovered
That water's as essential as blood
But more importantly,
You need a constant flowing of love
The kind you know is from above
And that's what I felt
Kickin' it, Smokin' blunts and drinkin'
Playin' Chess
And lettin' all the different music sink in
i sit and get to thinkin'
About those precious times
I'm so grateful to call those memories mine...

(Hook)
Just looking back to when
These events were happenin'
Me and all your friends
Wish that we could see you again
Just looking back to then
It can't get dim
The memories live in my mind
And together they blend

(Verse 3)
This is in remembrance of
A best friend
Until the end
Who redefined my definition of love
I still feel your presence
As if you never even left us
I know you're pullin' strings in heaven
There to represent us
But do you know how much you meant to us?
I think you must
Cuzz if you're watching
You can see we all miss you so much
I wish i could touch you
But the memories will have to do
I drift through our time together
It's my way to capture you
Sometimes you'd wake me up
Just whistling at my window
I'd let you in the pad,
And then you'd twist up some indo
I'd start callin' the folks
To see what we could get into
Let's go pick up G Owens
And listen to some instrumentals
What happened after that
Would be a bunch of different options
But let's go check out the parks
And see if anything's poppin'
On the way we'd see J-Pizzle
Cruisin' by on a bike
He said "go to Nate's house
We're gonna do it live tonight!"
Most of the folks would already be there
Ika, Reflections, and Bless
Eagle Joe would be like "Yo
Who wants to play me at chess?"
There were many days just like that
All of us can confess
The memories will never die,
They'll just blend with the rest
Like road trips to SB and SLO
Or the times we'd sneak into the movies
And smoke up in the back row
But most of all what I cherish
Are all the words that you spoke
Cuzz if it weren't for your wisdom,
I don't know if I could cope...

(Hook)
Just looking back to when
These events were happenin'
Me and all your friends
Wish that we could see you again
Just looking back to then
It can't get dim
The memories live in my mind
And together they blend
