Align:    
  • [Featuring: Jane $$$]
  • [Verse 1]
  • At my brother's Janazah
  • Tears stained sunglassses
  • A Salat with no bows
  • Pallbearer carry you to the car now
  • Chilly day, Mosque on 96 and 3rd
  • New York City way, me and Jay never left my side
  • Rest like that picture with your pride
  • Who look just like..
  • Now the city looks less bright
  • Brooklyn looking less special
  • Don't carry the same weight
  • As when you were on this level
  • You: work in progress from 40 projects, God bless
  • An inspiration and a king
  • They won't know what I mean but this one 'bout to spring
  • Protect it with every feather on the wings
  • So even when it hurts, you'll never feel a thing
  • [Hook]
  • Said it's a cold cold war
  • Ain't nobody wins like the government
  • In the U.S.S.R
  • Cause this is all for shares
  • Nobody cares
  • Who you think you are
  • And you can fight it, but there's no defense
  • For what things are
  • Baby grab a jacket
  • It's a cold, cold...
  • [Verse 2]
  • Let me clarify the chorus
  • And what my cold war is
  • Cause the complexity is enormous
  • Using one of my greatest losses with eyes like faucets
  • To reinforce every single word that I talk with
  • Something about losing things, human beings
  • That reduces things to their most elementary
  • Find yourself where you never meant to be
  • With the energy of memories
  • That's the soul force of what's behind killing me
  • Finding pleasure in the pains
  • Like finding desert in the rain
  • Twisted: how this world can drive you masochistic
  • Question if I'm over it
  • Or if I'm numb because I'm closureless
  • Or my closure's that we all gotta go and shit
  • Rendered emotionless but moving at the speed of running over it
  • Still happy that I opened it
  • [Hook]
  • [Verse 3]
  • In the studio writing these words, one after another
  • In memorial of my brother
  • As you listen to the album with
  • Nothing on the cover
  • I imagine that he hovers
  • In the back of his chair
  • Floating right there in the air
  • Nodding his head to the music, I slightly lose it
  • Ask why do I put myself through this
  • Crack a smile, look up at the file
  • The waveforms on the screen of me tryna tell you what I mean
  • But I feel that it's all lost, or maybe that it's all gotta cross
  • Happy with his dedicated song
  • But now he's all gone
  • But he was never there, cause
  • He was everywhere, nowhere and down here
  • Maybe on that judgement day, rise up
  • We'll both open our eyes up, climb up
  • Hoping God forgives us for our tendencies
  • Wipes away our cool young histories
  • [Hook]
  • [Outro]
  • Ride around, you know what I'm saying
  • All over the world right? I mean, everywhere
  • I mean we just disappear and just come back
  • I feel like we can just put him anywhere
  • He'd find his way back home, y'know'm saying
  • Another random thing's that consequence to me
  • But maybe to you, not much
  • But with that said, the reason behind me
  • Why I do what I does, love
  • Just riding around bumping that, uh
  • Either Jay or Nas, or me
  • I used to tell him like "yeah you alright"
  • But you ain't *****ing with my man
  • It was always like that, so
  • Drop a little for you, let it bump
  • This that Esco music, it's that Esco music
  • Bumping with my Esco music, that raw
  • See you on the other side, As-Salamu Alaykum
