Gone For Eternity

 


(intro)

Ay yo, its Sp1ce

Listen man, I see the same story on these streets everyday.

Kids selling crack on the corner, or just letting up stoners.

But we got one life,

only one chance to do something, 

so why waste it? And why let life decay?

This for you homeboy 

Listen..

 

(bridge)

Dreams the dreamer

can never come alive

Cause he trapped his mind inside

Gone for eternity

 

Waiting for a ride

that’ll never come by

If only he wasn’t stuck on cloud nine

Gone for eternity

 

(Verse 1)

The brother half dead, ironically well fed

Well bred, had a father to supply them bread.

never got less than straight A's, now deviated from his ways

Can a brother from Jersey grow up and not be betrayed?

 

Forget loyalty, his friends lead him astray

His only fault was being friendly cause he didn’t think to say

when they drew him a line, he went and sniffed for cloud nine.

From then like a minus sign, I saw the decline

of a boy from the hood who was destined to shine

turned blind now just memories I keep like a shrine.

 of the brother once mine who was lyrically inclined.

 Now listen to the story of a crack fiend, lost in his mind

 

(chorus)

Cause If I don't help, then what will I be

If the truth ain't told, then how will they see?

If the crime ain't stopped, then how will I sleep man?

...How will I sleep?

 

 

Cause I just try to do my own thing

These pipes won't rot, cause I gotta sing

Too many of mine are ill in the scene

And, I’m just trying to stay clean

 

(Verse 2)

Another free man lost to the streets. 

he use to glitter with passion, now looking like concrete.

sitting in the corner, shaking, needs to get his dose up

mother trying everything, trying to get her hope up

 

grabbing on my arms, now I tell her it’s not over

I stay yelling, but he looking like a, a blank rover

give him a stoner and leave without a light

cause what the point when the boy's out of sight.

 

His judgement's gone, and now can't see right,

cause the wrong surrounds him he lost that fight

Look and see the facts, you use to run on the track

now your nose all burnt from sniffing up crack

 

(bridge)

Dreams the dreamer

can never come alive

Cause he trapped his mind inside

Gone for eternity

 

Waiting for a ride

that’ll never come by

If only he wasn’t stuck on cloud nine

Gone for eternity

 

(chorus)

Cause If I don't help, then what will I be

If the truth ain't told, then how will they see?

If the crime ain't stopped, then how will I sleep man?

...How will I sleep?

 

Cause I just try to do my own thing

These pipes won't rot, cause I gotta sing

Too many of mine are ill in the scene

And, I'm just trying to stay clean

(end chorus)
