sumthin wicked this way comes lyrics – outkast

remember back in the time
when the only sign we had was picket
but now in ’94 it be this way
something come wicked
g-angs killing others for clors
things that we wear for fashion
other brothers take it for a reason to be blasting
what the cut is going on
not soft like b*ttercups but
had enough of singing that same song
see i stayed across the street from the projects
took out your momma trash and groceries
to her trunk to keep my pockets
fat like cellulite only been to jail one week
for some shullbit and i pray to god i won’t repeat
i should pulled it when i had the chance to
no i shoulda did that ’cause if i did that
y’all would not hear that fat sh*t
that keeps you on your tippy
toes like that sellout
not caling no names but really who’s bad
i go through obstacles like a whole box
of condoms you can’t forget
where you come from
take a good lok in the mirror
and tell me do you like what you see
masters of decaption corruption and evil
but you’re always quick to point the finger at me
won’t somebody tell me
i just don’t understand
the ways of the world today
sometimes i feel like there’s nothing to live for
so im longing for the days of yesterday
what gave you the right to misjudge me
and write me off on the wall
acting as if you understand me
in reality you just don’t know me at all
sometimes i can’t help but wonder
if this was how it’s meant to be
but if you search deep enough in your soul
you’ll always find a slight reminder of me
won’t somebody tell me
i just don’t understand
the ways of the world today
sometimes i feel like there’s nothing to live for
so i’m longing for the days of yesterday
a-yo if we could all agree
to letting our souls become free
of that sweet bitterness
then whose chest would have the most seeds
i keep misfocusing my needs
and this stress on my back
with them caps they be blasting
into my knap sack
ain’t no accidental deathtraps
my mishap is the fact that
i’m destined to snap
it’s when i feel as though
my body’s able to go
my mind is ready to flow
did you know first you catch
and then i throw
it’s my own sense of time
if i’m late it’s ’cause i’m ending my day
just when the sun shines
and still gently advising the arising
of the moon as it rolls around
into my soundproof dimension
i just don’t understand
the ways of the world today
sometimes i feel like there’s nothing to live for
so i’m longing for the days of yesterday
i just don’t understand
the ways of the world today
sometimes i feel like there’s nothing to live for
so i’m longing for the days of yesterday
