Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)

Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)

Common

What what, we do this time
Rock rock
Yes, let this music travel through you
Talk about feelings, yeah yo
Yo whats up world?
Yo what's happening?
It's the C-double-O and I'm back again
Take this back and then, tell a friend
Spaces and places you been, time travelin'
Time travelin'
Yo, I was a piano player in my last lifetime
Now I write rhymes, sip white wine and let my light shine
Out the dark space, with the world on my mind like Scarface
though my sex drive like a car chase
More than a uh, it's the piece of mind I chase
Stakes are high, like my uncle is
We both got problems, he never confronted his
Under the bridge I wrote, some shit to stay afloat
And paint a picture, raw like the first coat
Send my old man a note to keep his phone on
My little cous'll know cheap tricks are homegrown
Travel to a place sweeter than home, listenin' to Nina Simone
Repeat this psalm, to the sky I'm keepin' my palms
Facin' the east, actions macin' the beast
Embracin' the streets, my god caught a case cause he beat
His lady down, it's two-thou
That ain't the way we lay it down
Souls get, found and lost at the roads they cross
Many paid dues, but few knew the costs
I ran through the Moss like Randy
Touchin' down wit God, close friends, and family
Recognize the voice in the wilderness
Com Sense, '92 and I'm still in this

Time travelin', took my time in hand
My rhyme learn and plan
Jealousy, money and pride can burn a man
Some walk but never learn to stand
Still, afraid to expand what they feel
I'm dealin' wit, wakes, marriages
A-T-M's, Ericsson's
Loud niggas that whisper carelessness
If we livin' in Revelation
Why should the people of the sun have to run?
Come to Esau in a year, he'll have freedom
He ask why I hadn't been to see him
Really, I ain't have a good reason
He said, "Rah, give back what you receivin'"
In a race against time, I was caught
In the same game as you, but long live the sport
It's time travelin'
It's the C-double-O and I'm back again
Take this back and then, tell a friend
Spaces and places you been
Time travelin' time travelin

Time travelin'
Time travelin'
Yeah, yo whats up world, yo what's happening?
It's the C-double-O and I'm back again
Take this back and then, tell a friend
Spaces and places you been
Time travelin'
