lirik lagu jay’ major – scarecrow

[verse 1:]
it’s frightening, you see the news right?
in a moment i promise i’m ‘bout to go berserk from paranoia
not my annoyance
this world is a valley of death
look at the highways, check through the airwaves
you really think that would be air that you breathing?
my homeland’s a terrorist playground
ain’t trying to be their play dog
cut loose a greyhound!
ain’t no place that gat safety
take a look at the park now, see everybody swinging
you just gotta duck always
cos you never know when the culture
might try to go vulture
the world is a harbor of danger
so why y’all out in this dockyard?
working hard to repair (relation)ships that would sail
just to k!ll a man
working hard is really getting deadly
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys

[hook:]
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys oooooo

[verse 2:]
let me tell you ‘bout a mugging
was a blade and a chopper when they hit me and tony
now it seems just a story but
the events of that night did hit me like a tornado
now i’m sitting brainstorming
looking for an escape route when i’m haunted by memories
i was a rabbit
and when these thoughts came calling
shoulda seen what speed how your fella started running
so now i’m digging my tunnels and sinking my trenches
i’m building these walls and creating defenses
see when you done been through some type experiences
you don’t just learn lessons you learn definitions
now i know why they call it mugging
cos when you hear that gun crack
you gon’ know life is fragile like a piece of chinaware
here’s a finer ware i be taking up for y’all
y’all fellas, y’all fellas shoulda beware!

[hook:]
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys

[verse 3:]
listen!
so my thumbs and heads up to the height heads
you ain’t seen what happened to the tortoise?
imma has to save it for another topic
but this man right here staying acrophobic
now you ‘bout the top and climbing heights
i see they never told you “life is shorter than a hyphen”
so if i could i would levitate
i take the stairs to the top elevators made to eliminate
look at tarzan and the mother ape
even evolution took it slow
give me a break like the 7th day, like the 7th day
i win it slow and steady
i ain’t ‘bout doing it fast like i never ate, like i never ate
when even the day’s finna be creeping by
treat it like a lemonade, sipping
i never do it in shots brrraaatttt, brrraaattt rrraaatttt
you could trip and die

[hook:]
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys
i done seen folks who ain’t buried in their bentleys

[verse 4:]
alright!
now close up your eyes and just listen to me joshua
i’m your subconscious, your instincts
the drive of your senses, i put you in motion
i teach you safety
i know the future you humans call it premonition
the buckling knees and ‘em twisting stomachs
would be simply just reflex emotions when feelings erupt
there is a volcano spitting red hot larva right in your front
the love in her eyes
is easily contradicting the feeling of fear in my heart
fairy godfather arrives
with that parental advice
rejection would ruin me
the concept of “be a man and walk right at it”
as i turn my back is no longer appealing to me

[verse 5:]
intro: it’s a story about that perfect fear in my heart
i was haunted by it, so let me talk to you about it
listen

have you been scared before?
i was victim to my fears for long
eating away at my heart and my liver
while these logics i juxtaposed made you think i was
logically just bold
around here there ain’t no mama told me
ain’t no papa hold me
just a grown man trying to get hold over his anxieties
wes wes, yes, yes
but what i’m i supposed to do when dangers are real
and past events are irreversible using the law of thermodynamics?
what are the dynamics that cause rise and falls in my
self-composition?
nightmares in my sleep, dying thoughts in my wake
been fantasizing ‘bout my wake is enough to keep me out my sleep
wes wes, rest, rest, yes!
cowards die a million deaths before the graveyard
and who gon’ be at such a funeral with a million wreaths
to lay upon his graveyard?
see where i’m from it’s hard to succeed
when the strong get upon their knees just to prey (pray) upon the weak
money laundering, hustling
selling trees like a lumberman
people do anything to succeed including doing you harm
god told me
“the ones who don’t take a risk are the risky ones”
but two shots made you feel like you was the whisky son
i was told dangers are real but fear is an option
cos every chance at fear is a chance at faith in equal proportion
so give it away, give it away now
i let perfect love get at my heart and take it all away now
so if that scarecrow magnificent
i turn that crow into a man, maleficent
so if that scarecrow magnificent
i turn that crow into a man, maleficent

[outro:]
that’s how i let it go people
let perfect get at your heart
cos perfect love cast away all fear (scarecrow)
tales of a coward my people
my tail in between my legs and i fly away
i turn that crow into a man
that’s how i live through it
