Su-preme (Supreme, Supreme) [x8]
Su-preme people living with they backs aligned
Up against the wall cause these days are asinine
Living in a money matrix, how cats survive
Some will fade away and wither, others will blast a 9
Kings and Queens working 9 to 5's
And making nothing searching for a deeper purpose in life
This CAN'T be life...
With all these workers? Can't be right...
Without no money in my pockets I just can't see right
I used to try to preach to young 'uns like, "Do right kids"
Now-a-days all that I can say is, "Get it how you live"
Live how you get it, shit!
Don't nobody wanna get...
A promotion up to fry cook like little Calvin did
Some would rather take a gamble, hey they might do bids
The allure of fast money in this hell-bound system
Got you look at two-hundred bucks a week
Versus, like a thousand in a day
Tell me what makes more sense to these...
Trapped like rats in mazes for the cheese
Every natural resource is here, we don't really need money
But certain people need power over people
They act like that 'cause they're trapped inside their EGO-sphere
And now you can't feel free
Without material possessions, you can't just be
And without 'em you're left stressin', so anxiously
So you grab the Smith & Wesson, then aim, then squeeze
To get what's comin' to ya
The block's so hot; it blew the top off the thermometer
The rush for drama is more appealing than a plane light
Cause life is insane, so insanity is a sane light
It's so easy to see, simple as day and night
SU-preme people born out of the way of the light
In the darkness, trying to fly straight
To some folks it's like being a fish swimming with sharks... shit!
(Perhaps not since men turned their ears the preaching’s of a mere prophet
2000 years ago have the words of humble men reached so many with such force as these. Perhaps because it has been burning for long, now smouldering
Now bursting into hot flames, now hastily covered over to smoulder again until the next outbreak.)
SU-preme people only want the best and uhh
SU-preme people won't settle for less than a...
Straight from royalty put inside projects in a
Capitalist system that don't make sense to ya
SU-preme people put against the fence, Get up!
Get irate and hostile if you ain't fixing tha...
Problem you created that made these conditions up
Little reparation for your acts are sent to us
SU-preme people ride to die to get the bucks
Some by any means so hey, lock your Benzes up
Tuck your chain and watch and keep your defences up
All they wanna do is live it up like you just did
