Ode To Marvin Lyrics

by Solange Knowles

This song is for my people
I wanna know where we going
I'm right beside you, 07

Street lights twilights
There's a liquor store by his playground
It's raining a cash flow
But it sits well at home, it's a hustle

Now a mother use to hustle to a different tune
There's a midnight thrilling
And oh the traffic's heavy burning light
Don't slow you down, he thinks trouble's fulfilling

Don't let me fall victim to this human nature
I know the way it is don't mean that's how it's supposed to be now
And oh, I wonder where this broken place is gonna take us
And where's the way I want to know

Street life crowded
But that's his way out, the illusion
Teachers failing
Our hero lives on TV

And oh, my break keeps all eyes closed while his are so open
Take it in three ways, I know it
Nowadays nothing's wrong
'Cause everything goes, we think trouble fulfilling

Don't let me fall victim to this human nature
I know the way it is don't mean that's how it's supposed to be now
And oh, I wonder where this broken place is going to take us
And where's the way I want to know

I want to know where
I want to know where
I want to know, know, know

Don't let me fall victim to this human nature
I know the way it is don't mean that's how it's supposed to be now
And oh, I wonder where this broken place is going to take us
And where's the way I want to know
