From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core of forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me

[Verse: 1]
We're stuck in a place so dark, you can hardly see
A manner of matter that splits, with the words I breathe
An' as the rain drips, acidic questions around me
I block out the sight of the powers that be
An' duck away into the darkness, times up
I wind up in a rusted world with eyes shut
So tight that it blurrs into the world of pretend
An' the eyes ease open and it's dark again

[Bridge]
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core of forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me
Why should I care

[Chorus]
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up

[Verse: 2]
Listen to the sound, dizzy from the ups and downs
An' nauseated by the polluted rott, that's all around
Watchin' the wheels of cars that pass I look past
To the last of the light and the long shadows it casts
A window grows and captures the eye
An' cries out, a yellow light as it passes me by
And a young shadowy figure sits in front of a box
Inside, a building of rock with antennas on top
Now, nothing can stop in this land of the pain
The sane lose, not knowing they were part of the game
An' while the insides changed, the box stays the same
And the figure inside could bare anybody's name
The memories I keep, are from a time like then
I put 'em on paper so I could come back to them
Someday I'm hopin' to close my eyes and pretend
That this crumpled up paper, can be perfect again

Yo
[Bridge: Repeat]

I'm here at this podium talking, the ceremonial offerings
Dedicated to urban disfunctional offsprings (What's happenin'?)
City governments are eternally nappin'
An' trapped in greedy covenants, causin' urban collapsin'
An' bullets that scar souls, with dark holes, get more than your car stole
Some hearts be blacker than charcoal (fo' real)
This society's deprivation depends
Not on our differences, but the separation within
No preparation is made, limited aide an' minimum wage
Livin' in a tenement cage where rent isn't paid
Tragedy within the parade
The darkness overspreads like a permanent plague
An' I'm forgotten

[Chorus: Repeat]
