    RZA



    [Intro]

    (RZA *Tekitha*)

    I feel a little fucked up right now and shit like
    Mad pain, mad pain inside a nigga heart and shit
    I mean all this, all this, drugs, money, sex *Heart pain*
    Shit ain't really, it ain't fulfilling me, ya know what I mean?
    It's like I lost a lot of things, ya know what I mean?
    I'm not supposed to sing in tune
    And the shit kinda broke me down a lot
    And I'm just tryin' to hold on, shit but like
    *again and again and again, again, again*
    I don't know which way to really go
    I don't know which way to go
    Right, left, up, down, back, forward
    ya know what I mean? I feel like a Motherless Child, ya know what I mean?
    *You ain't lookin' in the right place*
    It's like, I know I got a lot of weight on my head
    I know I gotta, I know I got the weight of the world on my shoulder
    You know?
    And I just wanna rise *ooh ooh rise*
    ya know what I mean? But I don't know what the fuck man
    Ah man, it's like, it's like, you know like?
    *if you keep your arm aaahhh right ooohooh*
    I'm tryin' to add shit up, tryin' to do shit right
    Tryna build *keep to the left*
    The Gods is teachin' me
    They tryin' to tell me, "Yo, yo Bobby, yo Bobby
    You gotta study God" *gotta listen*
    I don't know what to study, I don't know what to be
    *are you listenin'?*
    I don't know what to do, I...

    (RZA *Tekitha*)

    Yo, confused but yet wise, my problems surrounds me
    A lot of things upset me, as my soul rejects me
    *oh you keep searchin' ohhhh*
    Enemy of self, physical
    Listen, let me tell you about yo *come on now, come on*

    Yo, Yo, confused but yet wise, my problems surrounds me
    A lot of things upset me, as my soul rejects me *I know*
    Enemy of self, physically enslaved by the luxuries of this world
    So I behave like a man inside the grave, who's life is lost
    I want the promised gold, but can't afford the cost
    Or could I? I know the prescribe laws *I know*
    Any effect is a result of the cause
    All lies of illusion to myself I have lied
    Burnin' inside, one 'tempt to open wide and scream
    The name of the Supreme
    But I'm trapped in this world, lustin' for girls
    Therefore I imagine a genie and a wish
    Is searchin' for things that just does not exist
    But in my mist there's the answer for which I have searched *searching*
    Cuz from me springs Divine Prince Rakeem
    And that is me, the master of equality *Rakeem*
    With the ability to set myself free *can you hear me?*
    From B.O.B.B.Y., he don't wanna die
    He don't wanna die, he don't wanna try
    But I'm forced to cry and get trapped up in livin' my life inside a lie
    These problem's surrounds me
    *Wake Up Wake Up Wake Up Wake Up*
    A lot of things upset me, as my soul rejects me
    Enemy of myself, physically enslaved by the luxuries of this world
    So I behave like a man inside the grave, who's life is lost *oh no*
    I want the promised gold, but I can't afford the cost
    Or could I? I heard of the prescribe laws *hold on*
    Any effect is a result of the cause (hold on)
    All lies of illusion but to myself I have lied
    (+Build Strong+, hold on)
    Burinin' inside, one 'tempt to open wide and scream (hold on, hold on)
    The name of the Supreme
    But I'm trapped in this world, I'm lustin' for girls
    Therefore I imagine a genie and a wish *hold on, ohh*
    And I'm searchin' for these things that just does not exist
    But in my mist there's an answer for which I have searched
    *in searching you will find*
    Cuz from me springs Divine Prince Rakeem
    And that is me, the master of equality
    Give myself, the opportunity and set free
    And be all I can be, be all I can be
    Not a nigga just trapped up in luxury
    *Now hold on, you gotta Build Strong*

    [Outro]

    Yo Bobby Digital gotta get knowledge of himself right now
    *you gotta hold on*
    As we goin' on through the struggle of life *hold on, hold on, hold on*
    You gotta go from boy to man *hold on*
    Cuz we start of as sperm, the baby *hold on, build strong*
    Baby to man, from man to dead man
    And from dead man back to sand *hold on, hold on, hold on*
    All praises due to Allah the Most High *hold on, build strong*
    Word up, I gotta be free *you gotta hold on*
    I gotta break free, I gotta break free *hold on, hold on, hold on*
    I gotta break free
    *Tekitha repeating hold on, build strong...*

    A masterpiece. Everything I want from RZA and the Cure.

    'I was trapped in thgis world - lusting for girls'. '..a genie and a wish, I was searching for something that doesnt exist'.

    Tekitha is awesome.
