Typical Cats – Thin Red Line lyrics

88*5. Chicago, Yeah. I, shoot the gift on the radio station (repeat) 88

5. hpk, was the only station that we f k**around 88.

5. Chicago, On. the radio station Takin'.

a train (repeated and faded out) The*

red line is the thin spot I

roll down the back of a city overgrown and overtaxed The

wack stands of the rich pick a thin Pockets

bare and scatter the, skeletons of cultures with no rent control Pattering

feet of prostitutes and penny brown Children

trades glass glades sweet for someone to pay or to listen I

glisten like the question in the shorty's eyes Sleeping

in the train-car at the Lawrence stop when I get in Making

pillows out of bare arms while I'm posturing poems But

I can't name these eyes or the idea of less than home Home

be unfinished it that fate hasn't sown In

the skirt of an evening over mornings waste blown I

see the moon I see the go going by on stilts As

mouths wilt and turn blinded to girls' eyes Fate's

hands have holes we, hold hope by the collar Color

red the closed eyes shut tight on the dollar Wills

rock-heads to sleep my, eyes peal all the way To

memorize a sleeping girl's face and bring it to pk Oh

s, t**I'm late I got a bus to make to take the 35th and State Get

on the Dan Ryan red line and head downtown With

head down experience life in surround sound Rhythematic

speech occurs when the crowd's around Besides

I'm still waiting on the train plus, I'm late already And

how the f k**am I gonna get downtown and back to whpk Man

its already 8 40: too, much thinkin I

gotta keep this freestyle steady now, freestyles over things Like

this point to the fact that I'm sober I

need weed yo, f k**the mission to the record store To

put cd's on consignment just for fickle fans to not buy it I,

thought they liked violence but anyway skip downtown I

turn around I hear the train coming head, out now Train

stop hop, in the backseat like a fu n'***taxi And

I heard that dj Nat be having fat sacs a weed Get

off and catch the 55th and Garfield to University Hyde

Park chill I, feel a dark chill when I hit the building Here

with the intention to kill it Finally

made it now where the hell is Qwel and Denizen Reasons?

*run thin by the end of the line But

the signs can be read if you learn them in time (x2) Yo*

it's already Wednesday night time, for hpk's rap show But

waitin' on sacs yo makes me late F

k**it gotta hit this open mic Hopin'

to leave stress at the rest so I can flow tonight I

grab my rhyme book and hit the elevator Lighter

square freestyle the tale I'ma tell later Hike

to the thin red line that's Sheridan By

the time my name dries waitin' for the train here it is Amongst

the chatter of workdays and old dreams The

thin red line holds me to window seats The

wind blows beats with sin don't sleep But

neither can I with open mics on my mind My

pen and pad describe 65-minute lifetimes From

Sheridan to Hyde Park provides spark tight lines Who's

these Typical Cats flexin' insane &quot

It's; the Q-W-A&quot ", Denizen; Kane&quot Good;

to see yall cats late again some typical s t**For

sure don't sweat it Denizen yo, it's cool that you made it in Yo

my bad Denizen I had to catch some medicine Oh

I feel the pharmacology cats, were just guessin' when We

three breath these free prophecies Catch

me settin' outer limits to these than hp To

mc's that hate me probably cause they take themselves too seriously My

fear is not being there you see to hear'em speak For

sho you know these flea-bitten felines is found And

the loose tooth get left in the booth That's

my man Dan in a fine fickle fix of fellowship and fools frontin' Fact

remains Benneton ads on crack make you move something Similar

to Hi-Tek and Talib only at hi-speed fools, frontin' But

the fact remains they still won't do nothing Who's

bluffin' f, k**that I'm, all concerned with whose cuttin' Yo

f k**who's cuttin' yo, it's cool if you two dudes is puffin' huh, skid Not?

to crush this fat rap oh s t**check out this Typical Cat Nat scratch Dj

*Natural cuts it up
