He Got Game Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

If man is the father, the son is the center of the earth
In the middle of the universe
Then why is this verse comin' six times rehearsed
Don't freestyle much but I write a lot such word

Amongst the fiends, controlled by the screens
What does it all mean all this shit I'm seein
Human beings scream vocal javelins
Signs of a local nigga unravelin'

My wandering, got my ass wondering
Where Christ is in all this crisis
Hatin' Satan ever knew what nice is
Check the papers while I bet on Isis

More than your eye can see and ears can hear
Year by year, all the sense disappears
Nonsense perseveres prayers laced wit fear
Beware 2 triple O is near

It might feel good, it might sound a lil' somethin'
But damn the game if it don't mean nuttin'
What is game, who got game, where's the game in life?
Behind the game, behind the game

I got game, she's got game
We got game, they got game, he got game
It might feel good, it might sound a lil' somethin'
But fuck the game if it ain't sayin nuttin'

Damn was it somethin' I said
Pretend you don't see so you turn your head
Race scared of it's shadow, does it matter?
Thought of reperations got 'em playin' wit the population

Nothing to lose, everything's approved
People used even murders excused
White men in suits don't have to jump
Still a thousand and one ways to lose wit the shoes

God takes care of ol' folks and fools
While the Devil takes care of makin' all the rules
Folks don't even own themselves
Payin' mental rent to corporate presidents

One out of one million residents
Being dissident who ain't kissin' it
The politics of chains and whips
Got the sick missin' chips and all the championships

What's love got to do wit what you got
Don't let a win get to your head or a loss to your heart
Nonsense perseveres prayers laced wit fear
Beware 2 triple O is near

It might feel good, it might sound a lil' somethin'
But damn the game if it don't mean nuttin'
What is game, who got game, where's the game in life?
Behind the game, behind the game

I got game, she's got game
We got game, they got game, he got game
It might feel good, it might sound a lil' somethin'
But fuck the game if it ain't sayin' nuttin'

Yeah, that's right everybody got game
We just here to let you all know
That PE is in full effect till the year 2000, Joe
My man sing it

There's something happenin' here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Yeah that's right

Telling me that I got to beware
It's time we stopped children
What's that sound everybody look
What's going down

Hey yo, I don't think they heard ya Steve
Sing it again kick it to them again
One more time

It's time we stopped children
What's that sound everybody look
What's going down

That's right boy PE in full effect boy
Till the year 2000 Joe

Stop, look what's that sound
Everybody knows what's going down
Stop, look what's that sound
Everybody knows what's going down

These are some serious times that we livin' in G
And our new world order is about to begin
You know what I'm sayin', now the question is
Are you ready for the real revolution
Which is the evolution of the mind

If you seek than you shall find that we all come from the Divine
You dig what I'm sayin', now if you take heed to the words of wisdom
That are written on the walls of life then universally we will stand
And divided we will fall 'cause love conquers all
You understand what I'm sayin'

This is a call to all you sleepin' souls
Wake up and be in control of your own cycle
And be on the lookout for those spirits tonight trying to steal your light
You know what I'm sayin', look what's inside yourself for
Peace, give thanks, live life and release, you dig me, you got me

Everybody knows what's going down
Stop, look what's that sound
Everybody knows what's going down
