Right Now Lyrics

by Fort Minor

Someone right now is leaving their apartment
Looking down at the street and wondering where their car went
Someone in the car sitting at a signal
In front of a restaurant, staring through the window

At someone right now with their finger in their teeth
Who could use a little floss right across the street
There's somebody on the curb who really needs a jacket
Spent half the rent at a bar getting plastered

Now he gotta walk fourteen blocks
To work at a shop where he's about to get fired
Someone right now is looking pretty tired
Staring at a laptop trying to get inspired

Somebody living right across the street
She wrote the best things she's written all week
But her best friends coughing up blood in the sink
Can't even think what happened, feeling so confused
And he knows it looks bad but there's nothing he can do
I wonder what it's like to be right there in his shoes

But no I'm just taking it in
Out the window of a hotel bedroom again
Tomorrow I'll be gone, I don't know when I'll be back
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that

Yo, somebody right now is dropping his vote inside a box
And trying not to get shot in his throat
For the act of freedom right now somebody is stuck in Iraq
Hoping that he gets shipped back breathing

In a war that he's not really sure of the reasons
So we show our support when the press mislead them
Though we more then remain proud and salute the troops
Get some I know you boys got some work to do

Meanwhile right now someones 25 to life
And is standing on the corner with their thumb up hitchiking
Scratching off a lotto ticket hoping for a real winner
Sneaking through the border just to work and to eat a real dinner

Right now someone wishes they were you were not
Instead of second guessing freedom thoughts of quiet suicide
But right now I'm staring at the window at a frame
With holes in his arm and holes in his jeans
He pulled out his ciggerette sparked the light
And walked right around the corner just outta my sight

But yo I'm just taking it in
From the second story hotel window again
The TV's on and my bags are packed
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that

But yo I'm just taking it in
From the second story hotel window again
The TV's on, and my bags are packed
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that

Ya, right now somebody's sitting in the darkness
Trying to figure out how to put some heat in their apartment
But they got no mattress no carpet
And they appreciate it 'cause some people on a park bench

You see them when you rushing to get to the office
Wife robbed blind when she coming from the market
Right now somebody coming out from the pocket
Trying to dump that rock they run around the block with

The same time the cops is raising the glock with aim
To fill your legs and back with some hot shit
Right now somebody struggling to stop this man
Who's kicking and punching and cussing at the doctors

Down the hall the child taking his first breath
The doctors ain't even passed him to the nurse yet yo
I wonder if he understands what it's worth yet
Like the time spent while we here on the earth yet

The answer to the question that we all seek
Can be found depend on how free y'all think
Right now it's somebody who ain't eat all week
That would kill for the shit that you throw away in the street

I guess ones man's trash is the next man's treasure
One man's pain is the next man's pleasure
One say infinity the next say forever
Right now everybody got to get it together man

I'm just taking it in another strange hotel lobby again
Put my luggage on my back, I don't know where I'm at
I'm in world where we all change just like that

Yeah, but no I'm just taking it in
Out the window of a hotel bedroom again
Tomorrow I'll be gone, I don't know when I'll be back
But in this world everything can change just like that, like that, yeah
