"In My Sleep"
Baby girl told me in my sleep I was talkin
So it's only natural I asked her "what I said? "
She said she woke up when she heard
But she was so damn tired she couldn't make out a word
She said she was trying to see if eventually if I would scream the name of a bird
I told her "that's absurd"
And then gave her the face like "word? ! "
And then she replied "yeah"
Said "it was quite weird", said she was type scared
I said "that's the side effect that you get when you trade bad dreams for some great nightmares"
When I close my eyes, I escape the poltergeist
My escape from reality just what I needed
Brings me to a place where shorty never cheated
And even if she tried and succeeded
In this other world I wouldn't even get heated
Fuck the details, I don't care about why
I'm chillin with my grandmother, she ain't die
I was browsing online and seen Mike on that banner
And said "you can be like me and beat cancer"
Anything I touched I feel
Know it's fiction but it seems so real
Was leaving out the casino with a nympho
Yes Ray it can be so simple
Here's how I avoid problem with my kin folk
Learn how to build me a house with no win
Dows... and that's when I think I saw a ribbon in the sky but it wasn't from an in
Tro... cause where I'm at there's no rumors or gossip but still got love for Miss In
Fo... she said in my sleep I be laughing, but shit seem funny to me
My ice cream was 200 degrees
If it dripped I'd get a hole in my dungarees
See my animinoty is my protection
And me and hip hop have no connection
Which got me to reflecting
Is that why the mirror don't show my reflection
When I close my eyes there's no dollar
So we can stretch that one as an excuse
Of why folks do the things they do
Or why people act so brand new?
I had wings on flying outta prison with a ratchet
Was only there cause someone snitched
No ones poor but no ones rich
Just my way of creeping if life's a bitch
Took a walk on the ceiling just to get my mind right
That was yesterday... so in hindsight
Since I was able to haul off
I took it as God telling my I'll never fall off
Got rid of the name brands and the jewelry
Most people just use it as medicine
Like it takes them somewhere they ain't never been
But here you better off not better then
Stuck in the room with an elephant
Open the closet and dapped up my skeleton
Had a convo with a man with no ears
And all of a sudden everything became so clear
Have no fear
I just bought a first class trip to nowhere, everybody goes there
But they don't stay the whole year,
Me I got 365 shows there
My girl said in my sleep I be walking, so I ask baby "where I go? "
She said I be walking slow,
She don't ever wanna get outta bed so she don't know
I went to see a man walking on water
Asked if he'd ever get things back in order
I been there two years over a quarter
But every time I open my eyes it's like torture
He said "please I gave you a whole other world for you to go do with as you please
Just so you appeased mixed with a couple of signs bout real life while you make believe"
So I teleported outta there with a grin
Met a bum with a mansion that invited me in
Then we politiced about politics
He mentioned def jam but I ain't acknowledge it
I went to see a virgin with AIDS, yea I thought about smashing that
Yea her ass was fat, so appealing
Tattoo on her inner thigh that said "she was doin better then she was feeling"
I think I seen shorty before, maybe in the club or something
Maybe in VIP, but wasn't nobody there but me
And the club was all red, and she started playing with my head
And then I came
Then I asked shorty what's her name and it was weird cause she fucked around and disappeared
Like what a cruel joke
Cig lit but from it was no smoke
Flicked in the ashtray and seen Stack's face
Slashed to a school hallway on a half day
Was getting chased, couldn't tell by who
Then the hallway turned into a cliff
Screamin "piff" before I was dead
Somehow I jumped my ass up out that bed
Then baby girl told me in my sleep I was screaming
So I said "that's a lie"
She put her right hand in the sky
And said "you was but I don't know why"
Gotta go, goodbye...
