lyrics

Chorus

everybody wanna have fun
lost in the city of son
let's go (ha ha ha ha ha)
show you how the west was won
come to the city of son
let's go (ha ha ha ha ha)

JustMe

Let's go y'all! Drive or fly
Beat feet not to the sweet by and by
Or a slice of the pie in the sky when you die
But the reward to be more than private eyes
That report and remark on what we spied
We swore that we'd score but we ain't ride
All full of excusing...the devil a liar
But who's the loser choosing never to try?
Not I. I'm a get up and act
'Cause ain't a dang thing falling in my lap
Without a pain, gain be amounting to crap
Without an effort I'd be left for the trap
And I ain't Effing with that!
(Fuck that!)Smart work pays off
Like a man that lacks hard work stays soft
Until the man in the mirror jerk lays off
I ain't even taking birthdays off

Chorus

Deacon

I wanna go
so many questions
I wanna know
so many ways I wanna grow
actions speak loud Lord help me to show
chest pain after chest pain hold as i sit down
lost count of the blunts rolled as they go round
need to focus on self and all things I know now
I do this for Eve and the seed we gon' sew down
in a battle versus self it can go rounds
"be a winner over sin, friend, get the gold crown"
so I'm 'spose to love
that's the lowdown?
in a world that hates love
that's the program?
so hard to do
so hard to act right when God's in view
he's everywhere and he's so hard to fool
everybody barbecue

You can't blame the devil for your actions
can't blame the devil for your actions
no ya can't
cant't blame the devil for your actions
can't blame the devil for your actions
no ya can't
can't blame the devil for your actions
can't blame the devil for your actions
he is just a fraction
anybody out there askin'
(I'm) talkin' 'bout something everlastin'
all that I know
