The World

The World

Queen Latifah

(The world oh, oh, oh the world x2)

I smoked pot up up again help
The pain to go away,
But it wouldn't go away,
Just subsided through the haze

Just drifted off into deeper thought
So I broke my mind and searched my heart
Finally whats blindin' me was just as clear as day.
I figured out whats stressin' me, depressin' me
Mummy that man was lancing me
No..

Was only 5 years old I couldn't seem to tell a soul
I didn't know how to let you and daddy know
And I can't go on, like this
That's the kinda thing that make ya slash your wrists
But now that I realise this
What happened to me I gotta fight this

[Chorus]
The devils are probably lyin' (runnin' round and lyin')
Tryin' to move out
Is he gonna take my crown?
Gotta get up, stand up, fight for hours
Every second of every minute of every hour
I see your face

Help me with what happens in the world.

Lesson number one the world ain't fair
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
So put your faith in it if you dare.

(The world)

The world'll put you right on top
Then snatch the bottom from under you
And just watch and laugh as you drop

Lesson number one the world ain't fair
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
So put your faith in it if you dare.

(The world)

Whooooah..
The world'll put you right on top
Then snatch the bottom from under you
And just watch and laugh as you drop

Runnin' around the school as you tried committin' suicide
He asked what would make a 14 year old boy wanna take his life?
It'd be the fact, that he got a dad, who uses him, as a punchin' bag
Beats him till he's blue and black and wont stop will he makes him cry.

You kept it to your self and made excuses for the bruises,
Took painkiller to kill the pain from a daddy who's abusive,
He was telling you, you were useless
Never heard the words "I love you"
Made you feel like you were worthless
He's tryin' to save the trouble and

He can't go on, like this
That's the type thing that made you slash you wrists
Somebody shoulda told you that you're priceless
Put your faith in god and we can fight this.

(chorus)
The devils are probably lyin' (runnin' round and lyin')
Tryin' to move out
Is he gonna take my crown?
Gotta get up, stand up, fight for hours
Every second of every minute of every hour
I see your face

Help me with what happens in the world.

Lesson number one the world ain't fair
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
So put your faith in it if you dare.

(The world)

The world'll put you right on top
Then snatch the bottom from under you
And just watch and laugh as you drop

Lesson number one the world ain't fair
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
So put your faith in it if you dare.

(The world)

Whooooah..
The world'll put you right on top
Then snatch the bottom from under you
And just watch and laugh as you drop.

(The world)
That we livin' in (livin)
Where we leave our babies in the back seat of cars (cars)
Found my pass is blind (blind)
Desperate minds and emotional teenagers
Lookin' for love in all the wrong places
Well loves so right
You so never wanna test it
Who's your momma who your daddy?
You, can't even tell.
You're shinin' on chattin'
See news at eleven.
Were all walking through this place with
Vain visions of heaven

[Chorus]
The devils are probably lyin' (runnin' round and lyin')
Tryin' to move out
Is he gonna take my crown?
Gotta get up, stand up, fight for hours
Every second of every minute of every hour
I see your face

Help me with what happens in the world....

(The world)

(Repeat: x3)
Lesson number one the world ain't fair
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
So put your faith in it if you dare.

(The world)

The world'll put you right on top
Then snatch the bottom from under you
And just watch and laugh as you drop

(The world)

Lesson number one the world ain't fair
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
So put your faith in it if you dare.

(The world)

Whooooah..
The world'll put you right on top
Then snatch the bottom from under you
And just watch and laugh as you drop

(The world oh, oh, oh the world)
(Oh the world)
The world
