Non-Prophets – Any Port lyrics

Send* corrections to the typist [Intro

]:[Sage

Francis] Uh-uh-uh

Ha

Ha, Ha, [Chorus!

]:[Sage

Francis] You

ain't been where I've been And

I don't pretend to know where you come from Jack, But

most likely I've, been there Mmm-Hmm, And

I've, done that Mmm-Hmm, You

ain't been where I've been And

I don't pretend to know where you come from Jack, But

most likely I've, been there and, done that And

if your lucky enough (lucky enough) I'll, come back [Verse

]:[Sage

Francis] Back

from hell again a, sack of skeleton Corroded

bones and, a saggy bag of flesh and skin Head

of medicine hands, of labour pains A

s grin*** on the man with a face that strains A

change of eating habits (who, did you back) Like

a love needs its magic a, drug needs its addict (a, crack) In

the coded language askin, for open statements A

plastic mask and a nose with reloaded fragrances A

sense of when a situation stinks It

keeps me and my relationships indifferent In

the same way The

only thing that changes is the blood stains on the razor blade (My

rain doesn't stop) 'til, all you got is flooded gardens When

the president runs out of excuses hes, sure to make a couple pardons (Where

I'm from) you, can't run from your problems (When

my time comes) it, had better wear a studded condom Indispensible

pleasures with a price tag Forgetable

treasures burried in the mind of my dad Erotic

love is masturbation when lifes sad A

product of the Last Temptation that Christ had (But

don't get cross with me) unless youve come to touch my palms Just

to get me up in alms Watch

me part your Red Sea Legs till, they bleed when I force em open Searching

for Any Port when I see the Storm Approching [Chorus

]:[Sage

Francis] You

ain't been where I've been And

I don't pretend to know where you come from Jack, But

most likely I've, been there Mmm-Hmm, And

I've, done that Mmm-Hmm, You

ain't been where I've been And

I don't pretend to know where you come from Jack, But

most likely I've, been there and, done that And

if your lucky enough (lucky enough) I'll, come back [Verse

2 ]:[Sage

Francis] Back

to the grill again (back, with a vengance) A

million men with expired s packets** of adolescence Back

to the essence (back, to the grindstone) A

world went through earthlings a, traveling cyclone Passing

time zones (stuffing, my pocket of airlumes) A

Sly Stallone Stunt Double with Rocky career moves Backin

up to square one (laughing, when I hear some) Dj's

who should start from scratch flash, their flare gun Rapping

in my ear drum (Emcees, can't smile) Graff

kids who gave daps with wack hand styles Goin

back to the basic roots (Rappers in Asics suits) Master

the breaks produce, classics in, A-List groups Back

on the Vegas Group Playing, Blackjack So

I can take this loot back, from the fat chicks in latex boots Back

from ( )??(stabbed in the abdominal) A

lot of suckers like to say they were in Drama School They're

in the game to rape the industry I'm

here to get what should've been given to me In

the first place and, then fake an injury For

the sake of simplicity (bringin, it back) For

the sake of complex theory some, are considering quitting rap Side

saddle riding cowboys we, calling the motions of home life And

then leading their horse through smoke rings A

breed of cross-promotion (I, see that lost ( ))??Searching

for Any Port when I see the Storm Approaching [Chorus

]:[Sage

Francis] You

ain't been where I've been And

I don't pretend to know where you come from Jack, But

most likely I've, been there Mmm-Hmm, And

I've, done that Mmm-Hmm, You

ain't been where I've been And

I don't pretend to know where you come from Jack, But

most likely I've, been there and, done that And

if your lucky enough (lucky enough) I'll, come back [Outro
