1. waterfalls [album: crazysexycool]

Verse One
A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at her son that she just can't touch
If at any time he's in a jam
She'll be by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much
But all the praying just ain't helpin'
At all 'cause he can't seem to keep
His self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money
The best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

Chorus
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Verse Two
Little precious has a natural obsession
For temptation but he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
But all he can say is baby is good to me
One day he goes and takes a glimpse
In the mirror
But he doesn't recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn't know why
3 letters took him to his final resting place
Y'all don't hear me

Chorus

Left-Eye (Rap)
I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin' a trace of not one God-given ray
You say because my life is ten shades of grey
I prey all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days
And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin' hope
Is for the folk who can't cope
Wit such an endurin' pain
That it keeps 'em in the puourin' rain
Who's to blame
For tootin' caine in your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else's brain
You claim the insane
And name this day and time
For fallin' prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin' true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

2. something wicked this way comes [album: crazysexycool]

Rap One
Remember back in da time when da only sign we had was picket
But now in '94 it be this way somethin' come wicked
Gangs killin' others fo colors,
Thangs that we wear fo fashion
Other brothers take it fo a reason to be blastin What da fuck is goin' on?
Not soft like butter cups but had enough of singin' dat same song
See I stayed across da street from da projects
Took out yo momma trash and groceries to her trunk to keep my pockets
Fat like cellulite only been to jail one week
Fo some shullbit and I pray to God I won't repeat
I shoulda pulled it when I had the chance to
No I shouldna pulled it when I had the chance to
Yall would not hear dat fat shit
Dat keeps you on you on yo tippy-
Toes like dat sell out not callin' no names
But really who's bad
I go through obstacles like a whole box of condoms
You can't forget where you come from

T-Boz (Verse One)
Take a good look in the mirror
Tell me do you like what you see
Masters of deception, corruption, and evil
But you're always quick to point the finger at me
Won't somebody tell me

Chorus
I just don't understand
The ways of the world today
Sometimes I feel like there's nothing to live for
So I'm longing for the days of yesterday

T-Boz (Verse Two)
What gave you the right to misjudge me
And write me off on the wall
Acting as if you understand me
In reality you just don't understand me at all
Sometimes I can't help but wonder
If this was how it's meant to be
But if you search deep in your soul
You'll always find a slight reminder of me
Won't somebody tell me

Chorus

Left-Eye (Rap Two)
A-yo
If we could all agree to lettin' our souls become free
Of that sweet bitterness then whose chest would have the most seeds
I keep misfocusin' my need
And this stress on my back
With them caps they be blastin'
Into my knapsack
Ain't no accidental deathtraps
My mishap is the fact that I'm destined to snap
It's when I feel as though my body's
Able to go my mind ready to flo
Did you know first you catch
And then I throw
It's my own sense of time
If I'm late it's cause I'm endin' my day
Just when the sun shines
And still gently advising the arisin'
Of the moon as it rolls around
Into my soundproof dimension

3. unpretty [album: fanmail]

Verse One
I wish could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you?
Look into the mirror; who's inside there?
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today (yeah)

My outsides look cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
I'm just trippin'

Chorus
You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make up that MAC can make
But if you can't look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in the position to make me feel so damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty too

Verse Two
Never insecure until I met you
Now I'm bein' stupid
I used to be so cute to me
Just a little bit skinny
Why do I look to all these things
To keep you happy
Maybe get rid of you
And then I'll get back to me (hey)

My outsides look cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
I'm just trippin'
