"Dreamer"


Yea
Believe it or not
What kept me alive
Is my dream

[Hook:]
And I'm a dreamer
But I ain't the only one got problems, but we we love to have fun
This is our world, from here to your hood,
We alive alive man, it's ok to feel good

I'm a dreamer
But I ain't the only one got problems, but we we love to have fun
This is our world, from here to your hood,
Lock me up now, it's ok to feel good

[Verse 1:]
I got a friend named flow,
Who got a friend named blow
With a finger named clap
That'll leave you on the side like a (kango) hat
He ain't have no choice he was born this way
These streets pull your number like a phone display
And you gotta be defensive with' your life
You gotta be like Bush and take preemptive strikes
And the boys from the hood are always hard
Let alone in Mogadishu it's a mastered hard
If you bring the (world hoods) to a seminar
We from the only place worse than Kandahar
Where that's kinda hard

But we still like to party in mo...
Somethin' good happens we say Mashala?
Som'in' bad happens que sara sara
I close my eyes and all I can see is you dancin' with' me.

[Hook]

[Verse 2:]
(I'm a dreamer)

It's ok to feel good (yea)
It's the truth

Hey yo, y' check it out,

What would it take for a boy about my age
To hear cheers in his head upon that stage?
And the cheers they would drown out
The tears from my brown eyes
Come on back stage
You see screams ain't the screams from gunshot screams
In my dreams these screams are from hot teens
And I'm barely thirteen, I pack a dirty
Or a Russian firearm that shoots thirty
Just then I hit a bus and (then I'm trancin')
Then I'm crowd surfin'
I can't see the time burnin'
I'm not hurting with my mahogany pen
I'm on a world tour with mohammad and them
And we be overseas and not on these streets
So when my peeps stay alive like the BeeGees
And the likes of JZ would save my (stees?)
Singin' handily brought hip hop peace

[Hook]

[Verse 3:]
Some times we just like to have fun man we like to forget
All the fighting, all the guns and the tires burning

Back on the verse
Imagine crack wasn't birth
Imagine the earth wasn't hurt
Imagine no homeland alerts
Imagine no record locater
So I wouldn't have to get a criminal waiver
Imagine the peace wasn't in my (briefs?),
Instead peaace could stretch across the seas
So finally we could just rest in the (east?)
No refugees
And you, well you could dress in the book
And I could read your body with less than a look
I got a dream girl in my mind that's the hook
And intellectual sexual and still can cook

Yea

And I feel good right now
I feel good right here
You feel good right now?
You feel good?

[Hook]

(Yea)
We not down and out
Just because the times are hard [echo]
Uh
Uh-uh
Uh-uh
Yea
Shout out to the strugglers
In my country
The hardest place on earth right now [echo]
But still
I still know how to get down
I still know how to (five out?)
I still know to talk to a pretty girl
Take it easy (yea)
