The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have It

Dilated Peoples

Life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

Yeah, life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

I heard the meek shall inherit the earth
I heard those that don't speak up inherit the worst
I heard the rich get the treasures and the right to write history
I heard the poor get buried in dirt

I tell people play to win so they're scared of my verse
People scared of their power, people scared of their worth
People scared of success, people barely alert
People scared to get hurt or embarrassed to work

I been a security guard at Guitar Center
A food service worker and a telemarketer
Dreamin? 'bout goin? to [Incomprehensible]
Maybe CalArts or even the Arts Center

But music was my passion, part of my callin? to
Hustle year 'round, spring, summer, fall, winter
Will stop for nothin?, you shouldn't start with us
For the people, by the Dilated Peoples, hard hitters

Life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

Yeah, life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

Once again life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? The eyes have it
There are exceptions, people use their ties
Without the eyes, only way to win is lies

And some keep you under false pretense
And any half-truths fall under this roof
You gotta watch for these types, they be plottin?
Subliminally waitin? for you to get gotten

From Lost Angels to the rockin? Apple
Some get lost or caught by the shrapnel
Shoot your mouth off ?cause ricochets, watch for that
You never ready when the city fired back

Never ready for a hard day's night
And at home life ain't right so they dreamin? 'bout a flight
A getaway to divert the day's traffic
But life is right here goin? fast, you better grab it

Life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

Yeah, life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

For the people, by the peoples
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

y'all know my get down, my day to day
You can't spell Dilate without L.A.
Majority rules, some are outnumbered
It's a jungle out there, sometimes it makes me wonder

Why there's so many rats chasin? the cheese?
Cats facin? disease, cats facin? police
People bendin? the rules, just playin? to eat
It?s like connect the dots every day on the street

Life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people

Yeah, life is goin? by fast, I try to grab it
Can I get a aye? Aye, the eyes have it
For the people, by the peoples
The eyes have it, once again it's your people
