[Chorus]
And as long as I can live to see another day

Back in the sixteenth century ... way way back in the day
5th... 1999 and I don't know how
What the fuck! I pull up to Shell in my truck
Open my door, get up, slam it shut, "Marv, what up
For a minute we chat 'bout life and all o that
Grab a beadie and light it, turn the key and start driving
thinking "Damn! My whole life I was just a dreamer
I wanted to go on Rap City and act witty
What a wack pity! Was I choosin a road
Hold up I'm losin control. Think realistically on it
And even if the world does end and I can be mad at guys
At least my dad's alive married to my mother
At least I have life. Some people, their life was stolen
We got kids killin kids cause Earth is cold
It hurts the soul and leaves a scar on your conscience
So even if this will be my last night

[DEACON THE VILLAIN]
nostradamous predicted the world would be on may
the World Trades frame got struck by planes
exchanged pain for how America came to fame
usually confidence was pure in me, now fear in my veins
...any of this shit could end at any second"
that's no more additions to my memory's collection
no child and videotapin' her first steppings
but thankfully I got saved during them church sessions
not alot of wealth, but alot of peace within my self
disclipline from loving parents, though they raised me
when I was young, I was wild
(nights) living outlandish
now I do right.. wherever I can manage
now possibly on the verge of having everything vanish
like I was trying to live my life right, but somebody panned it
me up, outta the mud, outta the muck
from them days in the park, alone, drinking gin by the cup
the blessings were always there, I just chose to ignore them
wasn't selfish with them, trying to stretch and contort them
so as I.. kick back and ponder on armeggedon
I.. admit that.. I do have a wonderful life
