Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day
Daydream
I dream of you beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

[Lupe Fiasco]
As I spy from behind my giant robot's eyes
I keep him happy 'cause I might fall out if he cries
Scared of heights so I might pass out if he flies
Keep him on autopilot 'cause I can't drive
Room enough for one I tell my homies they can't ride
Unless they sittin on the shoulders but that's way too high
Let's try not to step on the children
The news cameras filmin
This walkin project buildin
Now there's hoes sellin hoes like right around the toes
And the crackheads beg at about the lower leg
There's crooked police that's stationed at the knees
And they do drive-bys like up and down the thighs
And there's a car chase goin on at the waist
Keep a vest on my chest
I'm sittin in my room as I'm lookin out the face
Somethin to write about
I still got some damage from fightin the whitehouse, just a

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day
Daydream
I dream of you beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

[Lupe Fiasco]
Now come on everybody, let's make cocaine cool
We need a few more half naked women up in the pool
And hold this mac-10 that's all covered in jewels
And can you please put your titties closer to the 22s?
And where's the champagne? We need champagne
Now look as hard as you can with this blunt in your hand
And now hold up your chain slow motion through the flames
Now cue the smoke machines and the simulated rain
But not too loud 'cause the baby's sleepin
I wonder if it knows what the world is keepin
Up both sleeves while he lay there dreamin
Me and my robot tip-toe 'round creepin
I had to turn my back on what got you paid
I couldn't see half the hood on me like Abu Ghraib
But I'd like to thank the streets that drove me crazy
And all the televisions out there that raised me, I was

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day
Daydream
I dream of you beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day
Daydream
I dream of you beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

    I think his tone is revolutionary. He is trying to give us an angry mood as listeners, because his theme is that most hip hop artists are tricking us by not showing the world as it really is. He shows us the street life that is full of crime and death, and compares it to the rappers' world--wanting more "champagne" and naked women. This is sarcasm. His author's purpose is to show us his version of reality and criticize those who pull the "hood" over our eyes.

    The easy listening sound and happy feeling is just another hood over your face to keep the truth in the dark. Only few will notice the truth others will see what they are right now as we see more because of where we are. First he talks about stardom and how he is not in control the robot is. But he is smart enough to noe what happens if he indulges more and how much he can lose of whats left of his consciousness. He continues to talk about the corrupt, from pimps and hoes to the government. Its always a secret what evil man will do or is doing while we are babies. Mindless and powerless to change the world. At the end he is talking about the bullsyth rappers (street) life because they promote this non consciousness of idolizing. The song is awesome and is very metaphoric, well done lupe.
