Comment: even though I've

(See in situ)

even though I've

never liked Top 40, nor that particularly into 80's stuff, and even though I haven't seen Christian Bale in the American Psycho, recently, yet, for some reason, even though I've never been that into their stuff, during the height of their career, my brain keeps humming Phil Collins/Genesis, as of late, especially the following:

Take that look of worry
I'm an ordinary man
They don't tell me nothing
So I find out what I can
There's a fire that's been burning
Right outside my door
I can't see but I feel it
And it helps to keep me warm
So I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

Seems so long I've been waiting
Still don't know what for
There's no point escaping
I don't worry anymore
I can't come out to find you
I don't like to go outside
They can't turn off my feelings
Like they're turning off a light
But I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind
Oh I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Cos I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

Take that look of worry, mine's an ordinary life
Working when it's daylight
And sleeping when it's night
I've got no far horizons
I don't wish upon a star
They don't think that I listen
Oh but I know who they are
And I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind
Oh I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Well I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

But I don't remember
Take, take me home...

[** Duh! Just figured out why my brains' been humming it: My subconscious is telling me exactly how I feel about how this song basically reflects my feelings toward the current geopolitical reality; (sub)consciousness: always smarter than me! xD ]

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (primary artist) With Phil Collins (Take Me) Home Lyrics
Published on Aug 15, 2013

I've been stuck in the struggle
And I've been wonderin' if I'm ever gonna bubble
I'm gettin' caught up in the touch
Instead of usin' my muscle
And every time I extend my heart to my mother
Caught up in the game now I'm back up in the hustle
Sometimes I sit and I wonder
If a nigga pull my number
If it wasn't for the Bone Thug fam'
In this world where nobody don't give a damn
But I'm still a man
Got a soul program
I'm gonna pump my fist
I'm stayin' ready for this
And you can put this on Wish
I never seen the abyss
And when I needed a ride
You wouldn't give me a lift
And now I'm poppin' my cris
You niggas all on my dick
I wanna change the world
You wanna change your life
I wouldn't a put up a fight
If I knew it was trite
They say everything happin' for a reason
Can you tell me why these niggas bleedin'
Needin' general assistance?
Out here needin' public housing
Out here tryna make ends meet
Tryna get on their feet
But see brain so cloudy
And I know what you don't know
You better get on your mission and get down for your dough
See the real niggas ready out here taken control
See I'm screamin' out Mo'
With my pockets on swoll
Please Mr. Postman, quit bringin' these bills to my house
Quit bringin' this stress to my spouse
'cause I'm ready for the kill on look out, look out
If you niggas try to run up on the Bone
I'm gonna show you like this I'm gonna pull out my chrome
I don't wanna have to send a nigga home
Lord please take me home
Come and take me home

[Chorus (Phil Collins):]
Take, take me home
Cause I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cause I don't remember

Home, home, home, home, home
Please take me home
When I'm lookin' at my money now
Thinkin' back when I was livin' foul
I was runnin' wild, surviving
On some nine-to-five
And even puttin' overtime if I had to grind
I was stayin' up, slangin' up, hangin' up on the block
Duckin' dozens of them cops clocked on the night shift
Didn't think I'd ever make it out, out, out of the ghetto
But we finally made it
Still dedicated to the music we made yeah
Now it's on Bone Thug
Leave alone, came back the next year
Number one platinum song it blew up from the go
And what do you know (oh no)
Easy, rest his soul
Left us in the mess, I don't regret it
But we better get up and get it, go
Everything's gonna wrong
Since you left Bone ain't nothing's been right
I knew it would've been on
We would've been tight
We would of been in the zone ridin' so high
Hoping the game find us light
See we used to love makin' music
We was always in the studio, groovin'
We kept it movin', we was ready to do it (Right)
But you know I'm goin' through it
And ain't feeling this rap thing right now
They got me trippin' ready to flip
They got me trippin' ready to come get my chips
They got me trippin' loadin' the clips
They trippin', Lord I feel like I'm losin' it right now (Right now, now)


[Bizzy Bone]
I'll never give in
I'll never give up
I'll let 'em live in
They sinnin'
They pretend to be tough (pretend to be tough)
Pretend to be blessed
They want money and women, it's never enough
They in a rush hope nobody knows just too much
You better be good, you know up in the hood it's so, we give 'em the dough
Ride out, laughin' up
When niggas died, niggas brought around nasty junk
And to the grave, I been one of the brave
Not one of the slaves
And one in the pain
And I'll be one of the same, stay hatin' the fake
By the television runnin' 'round telling niggas we better behave
Guard Leathafce and the grin right up under my face
I steady debate the pain that I bring with hate
Sweet as the cake, I take another puff and shake
The smell of right it's all about guarding, guard the weak
Lost mommy, poppy left home
I miss Wish' Uncle Charlie
Sit list in the back tellin' his selection
His date is probably
Probably my mommy, song
Cryin' for the life of you gone
Just me and my destiny let's roll, let's roll


When I lost my Uncle Charle a part of me went wrong
And it happened when the Bone was comin' up so strong
We just wanted him to see what we do
You motivated us. At the shows we seen you
And I really hope you listen to what we spit on these songs
You might have been through somethin' hopin' nothin' like Bone
Like one said we'll never make it
Like two, thirty mil in they faces
And I really thought it was over put us out be left
Crossed over, back to the hood we soldiers
The music nigga make it back, scandalous
But fate kicked in and award shows and we winning now
Gotta keep it comin' food in my baby mouth
And things have changed like relationships
Ain't heading nothin' now you wanna flip
Suin' people thangs you would've never made on your own
Now I wanna stay, watch thug niggas leave the hood
Bye, think I'm home
Stick in the hood, mess with scrubs, it'll all be gone
You can really help a buster if it ain't meant to be
Wit a little ooh wee, wit a little ooh wee
I'm tired of tryin' to help these thugs
Lord. Just guide 'em home, guide 'em home

for those of y'all not even into hip-hop/rap, regardless, the following is why Biggie Smalls/Notorious B.I.G. was one of the BEST MC's to have ever lived:

check out how easily he flows, seamlessly in and out of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-esque cadence & rhythm (the flow Biggie deploys in this song is not his 'regular' method); all honed during his street freestyle/battle days:
