For Nothing

from QUALITY CONTROL by Thaione Davis




Okay i’m slicker this year
I’m slicker this year
Got the fans hands stuck up in the atmosphere
Time ticking on the question like we done been here
Now we done saw that came thru and conquered
Planet on the flatline searching for the basic essentials
Why they selling game with no credentials
Call it what it is if you aint’ go much
They dropping bombs all up in your area bust
The cannon if can if you can’t then clutch
Your precious nightmares and embrace the dust
Racing to a future that is hazy
Surrounded by the maybe’s
No petals on the daises
The situation crazy
For nothing
Now lets go into detail
See we fail cause we don’t even like our own kind
Now when’s the last time that you tried to extend
Your hand as a friend to another brotheren
For nothing
Simply off of g p
You know help em get back up on they feet for free
If my community is blinded by what we call shining
Then half you muthafuckers out here claim you grinding for nothing
That’s just how break em
Take em for they sense of pride and they motivation
Sell it to they kids so when they bring it back to the crib
That’s when the domino effect slowly begins
All for nothin

It’s like you can’t even avoid
The feeling it was destroyed a long time ago
Same bloodline as geranimo
Captivate muthafuckers just like guantanamo
Im here to let em know we can’t be faded
Now face it
Im doing this here for simpler times
My systematic observation got that kalifornication state of mind
On that sun beam relax recline
By the way you just mi-informed
Hold the correction
Till you get your spine right
Or get your back in the game
Go get a sense of pride about yourself
Cause we maintain
I represent the inner crust of every broken terrain
The focus never outta focus
Analyze the prognosis
Or the forecast
Moving through the ghetto
Rather steadfast
Committed to genuine efforts
And still collect cash…
For nothing they just popping the trunk
And if you stuck
Then you just get stuck
Really im saying its for nothing
