Fort Minor – Right Now lyrics

[Mike]
Someone right now is leaving their apartment
Looking down at the street, wondering where their car went
Someone in the car sitting at a signal
In front of a restaurant staring through the window
At someone right now with their finger in their teeth
Who could use a little floss, right across the street
There's somebody on the curb who really needs a jacket
Spent half the rent at a bar getting plastered
Now he's gotta walk fourteen blocks, just to work at a shop
Where he's about to get fired

Someone right now is looking pretty tired
Staring at a laptop trying to get inspired
At somebody living right across the street
She's wrote the best thing she's written all week
But her best friend's coughing up blood in the sink
He can't even think what happened, feeling so confused
And he knows it looks bad but there's nothing he can do
I wonder what it's like to be right there in his shoes

[Chorus 1]
But no, I'm just taking it in
Out the window of a hotel bedroom again
Tomorrow I'll be gone, I don't know when I'll be back
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that...
Just like that

[Ryu]
Yo, somebody right now is dropping his vote
Inside a box and trying not to get shot in his throat
For the act of freedom, right now somebody is stuck in Iraq
Hoping that he gets shipped back breathing
In a war but he's not really sure of the reasons
So we show our support when the press mislead them
Though we more remain proud, salute the troops
Get some, I know you boys got some work to do

[Tak]
Meanwhile, right now someone's 25 to life
And is standing on the corner with their thumb up hitchhiking
Scratching off a lotto ticket hoping for a real winner
Sneaking through the water just to work and eat a real dinner
Right now someone wishes they were you and I
Instead of second guessing fatal thoughts of quiet suicide
But right now I'm staring out the window at a fiend
With holes in his arm and holes in his jeans
He pulled out a cigarette and sparked the light
And walked right around the corner just outta my sight

[Chorus 2:]
But yo, I'm just taking it in
From the second story hotel window again
The tv's on, and my bags are packed
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that...
Yo, I'm just taking it in
From the second story hotel window again
The tv's on, and my bags are packed
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that...

[Black Thought]
Yeah, right now somebody's sitting in the darkness
Trying to figure out how to put some heat in their apartment
But they got a little mattress, a little carpet
And they appreciate it 'cause some people are on a park bench
You see 'em when you rushing to get to the office
Wife robbed blind when she coming from the market
Right now somebody coming out the pocket
Trying to dump that rock they run around the block with
The same time the cops is raising the Glock with aim
To fill your legs and your back with some hot shit

Right now somebody's struggling to stop this man
Who's kicking and punching and cussing at the doctors
Down the hall a child is taking his first breath
The doctors ain't even passed him to the nurse yet
Yo, I wonder if he understands what it's worth yet
Like the time spent while we're here on the earth yet
The answer to the questions we all seek
Can be found, it depend on how free ya'll think

Right now, there's somebody who ain't eat all week
That would kill for the s***s you throw away in the street
I guess one man's trash is the next man's treasure
One man's pain is the next man's pleasure
One say infinity the next say forever
Right now er'body got to get it together man

[Chorus 3]
Huh, I'm just taking it in
In another strange hotel lobby again
Put my luggage on my back, I don't know where I'm at
I'm in a world where we all change just like that, like that...
Just like that

[Chorus 1]
Yeah, I'm just taking it in
Out the window of a hotel bedroom again
Tomorrow I'll be gone, I don't know when I'll be back
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that...
Just like that.
