    Life is a Movie

    RZA



    (RZA)

    I got scientist killas that'll jam your cell phone
    Send a text message, kill you off with a ringtone
    High pitched noise, drove your brain insane
    Autopsy report, that he jumped from a train
    It started when the dearly departed, tried to escape max'
    Then cut into the general's income like state tax
    One call to Steel the deal was sealed
    Doctor on the payroll, cost a quarter mill

    (GZA)

    The mailman's late with the check
    I'm in the flood with a bunch of bills that's about up to my neck
    Plus my rent's not paid and the light's about to go off
    Car got stolen by a thief who likes to show off
    I can't even get a job giving out fliers
    I'm a handyman with a pair of broke pliers
    The fridge is theirs, Mother Hubbard's cupboard
    I'm so down and out, I can only go upward

    (RZA)

    I form rhymes in alphabet soups
    From the rhythm of the spoon, I transform the loop
    With the steam of the bowl I make the special effects
    Add a dash of spice, only God can detect
    got a word, to make a bear return to his cub
    A word that make a girl come home from a club
    A word that make a demon return back to God
    And the word that help Dorothy get home from Oz
    Thirty frames per second, these films we be reflecting
    Scenes of light put through all projection
    Electricity, connectivity
    Audio and visually, physically and mentally

    (GZA)

    I got a smile that'll make the mirror crack
    And I seem to stay under clouds that's pitch black
    So when it rains, it pours, and when it pours, I'm soaked
    I contracted lung cancer from third hand smoke
    And uh, I'm like the frog that's dying to be a prince
    The boy who cried wolf and no one was convinced
    The man who hit lotto and lost his ticket
    In a rainstorm, and struck by lightning trying to get it

    [Chorus]

    (Irfane Khan-Acito *Gary Neuman Sample*)

    And sometimes I feel like my life's a movie
    *I don't like the film, I don't like the film*
    And sometimes I feel like my life's a movie
    *I don't like the film, I don't like the film*
    *Play it all back, play it all back*

    (GZA)

    Lights, camera, action, let the tape roll
    Some scripts get ripped, canned or even sold
    Directors vision, producers decision
    it raised the budget, because the chase had collisions
    Stunt double risks his life just for the thrill
    DP checks the gate before the scene gets sealed
    Gaffer slapped with a slate for being late
    Craft service got nervous and dropped a hundred plates
    Leading actor banging an extra in the trailer
    Screaming, hitting high notes like Mahalia
    Box office hit and a Blockbuster smash
    Two hundred mil' budget and still recouped the cash

    [Chorus]

    This is just a great song, nicely used Gary Neuman sample, really dope lyrics.
