Life, I wonder

Imagine goin' to court with no trial
More conscious of the way we raise our daughters
Days are shorter, nights are colder
The world's hot, my son got not evidently

Of coke was cooked without the garbage, we'd all have the top dollars
Designer clothes, lacin' your click up with diamond vogues
Your people holdin' dough, no parole
Just some thoughts for the mind, I take a glimpse into time

I'd free all my sons, I love 'em, love 'em, baby
If you could be mine, we'd both shine?
In these last days an' times
The way to be, paradise like relaxin' black
Cash, Lost Tribe of Shabazz, free at last

Trees for breakfast, dime sexes an' Benz stretches
The better livin', type of place to raise kids in
Open they eyes to the lies history's told, foul
Seein' things like I was controllin', click rollin'

Gimme one shot I turn trife life to lavish
No work, release purple M3's an' jet skis
Feel the wind breeze in West Indies
An' reverse themes to Willies
I'd open every cell in Attica, send 'em to Africa
If I ruled the world, imagine that
Black diamonds an' pearls, could it be
If I ruled the world, still livin' for today

Hand in hand
We won't land
We'll walk right up to the sun
We'll walk right up to the sun

Duck down in car seats, heat's mandatory
These are the breaks, many mistakes go down out of state
Wait, I had to let it marinate, we carry weight
Millionaire plan to keep the gat with the cop camera

Still nobody want a ***** havin' ****
I push a Q-45 infinite
It wouldn't be no such thing as jealousies or be Felonies
I thought I'd never see but reality struck

I'd free all my sons, I love 'em, love 'em, baby
If you could be mine, we'd both shine?
In these last days an' times
If I ruled the world, imagine that
Black diamonds an' pearls, could it be
If I ruled the world, still livin' for today

I'd free all my sons
Black diamonds an' pearls
If I ruled the world
