Ladies and gentlemen you are on Cloud 9 Airways. Please buckle your seatbelts and stay seated. Our departure will be around 4:20. Clear skies, sunny days. We are ready for takeoff. We have a go.

Wasn't much to do, I dipped outta school
Had to play it cool, I lit up that blue
And then I flew away, in the middle of the day
Man I gotta leave, I gotta escape
I can't stick around, gotta fly away
In the middle of the day, in the middle of the day

Look
Brain's at my window pane, it feels like I'm livin in a video game
But ain't nothing changed, cause it's the middle of the day
Look
I said I'm puffin with my kin folk, gone off that endo
Just doin that same old thing, with the same old gang
So can't nothin change

Look
Every day the time goes by, passin me by
Paranoia on my mind, but I don't know why
Somethin bout the times when I'm at the bank standin in line
Don't say much, keep a straight face
If I say somethin I'm crazy
I think the government's onto me, onto me

Wasn't much to do, I dipped outta school
Had to play it cool, I lit up that blue
And then I flew away, in the middle of the day
Man I gotta leave, I gotta escape
I can't stick around, gotta fly away
In the middle of the day, in the middle of the day

Well I done sacrificed a lot
Just to get this rappin life to pop
Meditatin on that after life
And if a tragic happens then I pass my life to stop
Cause a brand new life's beginning
But I ain't intending for it to be tremendous like this
The old one I had is ending, so so long I'm finished

Face to the floor getting so frustrated
Tryin to figure out the right words to say
It's me and the clock I feel like I'm racin
Nobody knows the trouble I'm facin
Man I'm sick of waitin, gettin impatient
Watchin my life unfold the pages
Ain't nothin much I can do to stop it
That's why I'm blazin

Every day the time goes by, passin me by
Paranoia on my mind, but I don't know why
Somethin bout the times when I'm at the bank standin in line
Don't say much, keep a straight face
If I say somethin I'm crazy
I think the government's onto me, onto me

Wasn't much to do, I dipped outta school
Had to play it cool, I lit up that blue
And then I flew away, in the middle of the day
Man I gotta leave, I gotta escape
I can't stick around, gotta fly away
In the middle of the day, in the middle of the day

This is your captain speaking for Cloud 9 Airways. We are now approaching our initial decent. We'd like to ask all our passengers to remain seated and buckled tightly. All those passengers who wish to continue flight for infinity, please report to first class for your frequent flyer miles.

Wasn't much to do, I dipped outta school
Had to play it cool, I lit up that blue
And then I flew away, in the middle of the day
Man I gotta leave, I gotta escape
I can't stick around, gotta fly away
In the middle of the day, in the middle of the day
