"Too Long"
[feat. Black Thought]


[Intro: Saigon]
When you feel like your life is gettin' stagnated... (stagnated!)
And you know it's time for a change! (change!)
Say...

[Chorus 1: (DJ Corbett)]
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too looooong... (too looooong...)
[Saigon:] I gotta find my way out noow! - Lord, tell me what's goin' on!
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too looooong... (too looooong...)
[Saigon:] Tired of remindin' myself there's no right way to do wrooong!
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too loooooooooooo-ooooooooooong!
[Saigon:] I'm a make it out soooon; I can do it, I just gotta be strong!
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too loooong... (too loooong!)
[Saigon:] 'Cause I've been here for too looooong! (Oooohhh!) - Come on! (too looong...)

[Interlude: Saigon]
Now or never!
Can't stay in the same situation forever!
Pfft!
Gotta get it together...

[Saigon:]
My cousin gone from the slum, father was a bum; (a bum!)
He had a mother but he never felt she loved-ed him! (loved-ed him!)
People used to speculate: "Was it because of them"
"That he grew up chewin' more than just bubble gum? "
He used to like to bite his nails, (nails!) even fight the gal (gal!)
I used to tell him: "They gon' send yo' ass - right to jail! " (whattup?)
Pitching it hard; I never thought he'd listen to the God,
When I would tell him not to be an addition to the yaaard! (yaaard!)
To my surprise, this nigga went to get a jooob; (job!)
Now I be hearin' him braggin' 'bout his benefits and aaall. (what?)
And I applaud whoever can climb out the hood, (climb out!)
I hope and pray to Allah, y'all can climb out for good!
The hood is where the hate is at; I make it back!
Just to bring some paper back, turn around; ERRRT! - Make tracks.
I got a kid, I'm a need a crib with the lawn; (lawn!)
You can say what you want, (want!) nigga I've been here for...

[Chorus 2: (DJ Corbett) ("Saigon")]
[DJ Corbett:] Too looooong... (too looooong...)
[Saigon:] I gotta find my way out noow! - Lord, tell me what's goin' on! ("what's goin' ooon? ")
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too looooong... (too looooong...)
[Saigon:] Tired of remindin' myself there's no right way to do wrooong!
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too loooooooooooo-ooooooooooong!
[Saigon:] I'm a make it out soooon; I can do it, I just gotta be strong!
[DJ Corbett:] I've been here for too loooong... (too loooong!)
[Saigon:] 'Cause I've been here for too looooong! (Oooohhh!) - Come on! (too looong...)

[Black Thought:]
Uh, check it out! - Yo; I'm too black and too strong and been here for too long;
Never did it right cause all I knew was how to do wrong!
My people tellin' me to cut it out - like a coupon,
And act - like a new man instead of like a newborn!
Sometimes what I grow on, - is difficult to chew on;
And everything your crew on - is different than what you on!
I'm through with bullshittin' with my trivial pursuit on,
And sittin' at a stop sign. - Time to get a move on,
Cause - criminal minds with minimal time
On the meter, got to be on they continual grind!
Tryna find hidden treasure like subliminal signs;
And escape mental prison or a chemical bind!
And I'm a stone, but a stone can't - do it alone
Cause the TRUTH - can set you down - like two in the dome,
And make it all fall apart - like the ruins of Rome.
Yo; I'm a changed man headed for home!

[Chorus 1]

[Saigon:]
I know this crackhead who says she gotta smoke nice rock,
And if it's good, she'll bring your customers a measurin' pot.
Her family members used to beg her to stop;
Couldn't explain how to cook cocaine had her head in a lock!
You hear the beat with this repetetive knock? - That's the same way!
They used to tell her she was at the edge of the dot.
One night she woke up butt-naked in a crack house;
Not knowin' what happened, the bitch must've blacked out!
Nobody to ask about what had taken place,
Now she on the Internet with dog nut up on her face.
And she caught another case tryna break in her mother place;
Everything goin' wrong, she know it's cause of the base! (THE BASE!)
Said it was just a pipe dream (pipe dream!) to get her life clean (life clean!)
Even thought it might seem like the right thing! (right thing!)
Basically I just told her that: "Red means stop! "
"Yellow means slow; then you can go when the light's green! "
(I dropped jewels on her!) - That was her last night on the glass pipe (riight!)
After thirteen years, that's right! (that's riight!)
She said, recommend a rehab and I'm gone;
I wanna get strong! She said: "I've been here for too long... "

[Outro: DJ Corbett]
I've been here for too looooong... [3 seconds instrumental]
I've been here for too looooong... (too looooong...) [beat fades-out] [3 seconds instrumental]
I've been here for too loooooooooooo-ooooooooooong!
I've been here for too looooong...
