I Don't Understand It!

3 out 5 used you! !
And, they paid 60 Euro each!
But, i don't understand it;
Because, your ways are not like my ways.

I don't understand

I don't understand
Why people cry
Why people get angry
Why people hate
But most of all
Why people are prejudiced
Why people fight
Why people argue
Why people cheat
What I understand most is
Why the sun shines bright
Why the grass grows
Why people smile
Why the sky is blue

What Is It They Don't Understand?

Why haven't they boarded the lifeboats?

~They first wish to discuss,
Political correctness and social etiquette.
And what 'is' or isn't poetic.~

AND...
They 'are' aware of the ship sinking?

~They first wish to discuss,
Political correctness and social etiquette.
And what 'is' or isn't poetic.~

What is it they don't understand?

~They first wish to discuss,
Political correctness and social etiquette.
And what 'is' or isn't poetic.~

I Don't Understand You At All

I don't understand you at all.
What has the tightening of my belt,
Have to do with the feeding of my gluttony?
Everywhere I look...
You Tease me with greed.
You offer my imagination,
A choice of varieties.
Even with my attempts to diet,
There are an array of them...
From which you bombard me to pick.
And no matter which one I select...
You create another method,
You say is more delicious.

I don't understand you at all.
What has the tightening of my belt,
Have to do with the feeding of my gluttony?
Everywhere I look...
You Tease me with greed.
You offer my imagination,
A choice of varieties.
Even with my attempts to diet,
There are an array of them...
From which you bombard me to pick.
And no matter which one I select...
You create another method,
You say is more delicious.

I don't understand you at all.
Are the warnings of a failing economy,
Just another one of your false calls?

I Don't Understand The Way The Life Goes

I don't understand the way the life goes...
Sometimes we bow in front of it and sometimes in front of us it bows,
I don't understand the way the life goes...

To share in life we meet friends,
We enjoy a lot until they leave us,
New friends come with lot of fun;
But leave us leaving the memories,
Sometimes of happiness and sometimes of sadness, plants it grows
I don't understand the way the life goes...

To learn in life we meet our teachers,
They teach and develop our features,
They try to make us good citizens,
And because of them we stand,
Sometimes on feet and sometimes on toes,
I don't understand the way the life goes...

Parents are God's precious gift,
They take our care&give us a lot of love,
They leave us one day just with tears,
Memories spent with them are unforgettable,
God takes our god from us that is unforgivable,
Sometimes of marry and sometimes of sorrow it shows,
I don't understand the way the life goes...

You Just Don't Understand

how well do you know the girl behind the mask?
everything you see,
is not what you get,
all the secerts she hides,
are waiting deep inside,
because people
just don't seem to care,
about all of the hardship,
that she seem to have to carry,
can you relate?
to a life that gotten harder,
would you be open enough to learn the secerts?
that are under the mask,
because what you see,
is not what you get,
what you see
may be a happy girl,
but, deep down her dreams are crushed,
can you underderstand?
that all she wants is to be normal,
or at least be treated that way,
but, at time she feel people look down at her,
for what they know about her,
because they just don't understand,
how hard it is, to make life appear fine,
when it really not,
tiried of the tears she crys,
in her bed last at night,
wondering if there was purpose to a life,
that she cannot seem to fine,
because people only seem to care,
if your life is planned their way,
who life is it?
because people pulling her apart,
and don't seem to see what's really in her heart,
don't they know?
if theystop being such a b! t**
maybe we can sit and talk,
but, you being the way you are,
she going to just walk,
she knows she's better than you say,
she don't give a damn anymore,
because you know what she have to say,
back the hell up.
let her work her magic,
because of you,
she's everything you not,
think you know the girl behind the mask?
because all she can tell you is...
you just don't understand.

People are afraid of things they don't understand. They don't know how to relate. It threatens their security, their existence, their career, image.

I blame it on Walt Disney, where animals are given human qualities. People don't understand that a wild animal is not something that is nice to pat. It can seriously harm you.

The overall view of the human genome project has been one of great excitement and positive press, but there are people who have concerns that are quite reasonable, and they are frightened of things they don't understand.

I Don't Understand Her!

She's always with a negative thought!
And, i don't understand her;
Symptoms,
Peal, appeal!
Curb,
Guide, guard!
To be on guard;
Because, she's always with aproblem.
Loose, lose!
Without criminal mind;
But, she's always with a negative thought.

I Just Don't Understand

Well you call me your baby
When you're holding my hand,
But the way that you hurt me
I just don't understand.
Well you say that you need me
Like an ocean needs sand.
But the way you deceive me
I just don't understand.
Well you know that i love you
More than anyone can.
But a one sided love
I just don't understand.
Well you know that i love you
More than anyone can.
But a one sided love
I just don't understand.
Well you call me your baby
When you're holding my hand,
Oh how you can hurt me
I just can't understand.

They Don't Understand

They don't understand
No

They say we're just playing games
That it isn't real
But it's what we feel
(Oh yeah)

And they say it doesn't make sense
That we're just wasting time
And they wonder why
(Yeah)

You know we got our own special language
That only we can speak
And parents never know just what it means
(Oh no)

They don't understand
How we communicate
Or so many things
That we do and say

They don't really get what it's all about
No they never can understand
Pokemon

I can't explain
If they don't know why
You see it's everywhere
Well

They don't understand

They don't understand,
What its like to be me.
They don't understand,
Why school is hard for me.
They don't understand,
Why I'm so skinny.
They don't understand,
Why I have no friends.

They don't understand,
What I need.
They don't understand,
Why I lie.
They don't understand,
Why life is hard.
They don't understand,
What life is like for me.
They don't understand,
Why I hurt.
They don't understand,
Why I have fears.
They don't understand,
Why I'm different.

I don't understand,
Why they don't like me.
I don't understand,
Why they don't except me.
I don't understand,
What they say.
I don't understand,
Why they don't undersatnd,
Me...

The Social Out Cast

All are against me and say I can't do it
To change habits so hard
A social disease not up to par.
You just not smart enough.
You too poor, and dumb to learn anything.
You disgusting, ugly, and make me want to vomit.
Over and over again words are said to humiliate and defame
It makes you want to change your name.
Disappear to a new world.
A world where, I can defend myself with greatness
Where I can treat others with kindness
And it never be considered weak
Or your motives questioned.
Oh hes sucking up so you won't say what everybody else said
Like that is bread everybody should be fed
Who are you judge what you don't understand
A man so disorganize and distraught
Hes caught
Destine to fail
I say NO HE'S NOT! !
With a knife hes cut himself free
With anger he writes and practices
Methodically he tells all his stories
Most far from great.
But this is how he starts to relate.
Explaining everything as he see it
Becoming part of it as he reads.
Only on a paper can you be who ever you want to be.

Damien

Things are done that I just don't understand
There's hardly no time left for the average young man
Works his arse off 'til his blue in the face
Drugged with hope so he can keep up the pace

And soon he joins the unemployed
Where all hope and ambition are destroyed
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world

A situation that I don't understand
A desperation that just got out of hand
He didn't realize what steps he should take
He didn't realize that his life was at stake

He left us thinking yet again
Another passing of a friend

Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
For you and me
Damien.

A contemplation left much to late
A deliberation we all left to fate
We didn’t understand the role we should play
We ignored the facts hoping they would simply fade away

He left us thinking yet again
Another passing of a friend

Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
Is there any justice left in this world
For you and me
Damien.

Take Me As I Am (feat. Sharissa)

(feat. Sharissa)
[Wyclef]
I wanna send this one out to my vanilla ice-cream chocolate pudding pie
That stayed with me in the hood, do or die
Refugee camp
[Sharissa]
Yeah, this one goes out to my arm and joy
My banana that never split
The one that stuck with me
[Wyclef]
Before I had the bling bling
I thought I'd hit up in Sing Sing
Who would have ever thought that we'd be doing our thing
I know I did a little cheating
But once I got caught
I send you a parcel of roses
You sent them back and told me go to hell
[Wyclef]
But girl you know that, you take me as I am
Even though my fam don't understand
Why I put that rock up on your hand
That's cos you take me as I am (take me as I am)
[Sharissa (Wyclef)]
You take me as I am (yeah, I'm a take you as you are)
Even when my girls can't understand
I choose you as my man
But you take me as I am, my, my man
[Wyclef (Sharrissa)]
You're my girl (my man)
You're my girl (my man)
You're my lady (my man)
You're my baby
[Sharissa]
When I was rocking jelly and had a little belly
Who woulda ever thought, you'd think I was sexy
I say it with an attitude, I admit I came off rude
But still you love me, I know I get on your nerves sometimes
[Sharissa]
And I don't know why you take me as I am
Even when my girls can't understand
I choose you as my man (my man, yeah)
Cause you take me as I am (take me as I am)
[Sharrissa]
You take me as I am, girl I'm a take you as you are
Even though my fam don't understand (they can't understand no, no, no,

American Youth

American youth,
Denied the truth,
Schools want money,
aint that just funny?

Hip-Hop was once
A scene preaching struggle,
And of self advancing in this
World of corporate bubble.

Now hip-hop itself has
become a sell-out,
preaching nihilist hate
and material well-outs.

Corporations cash in
On our youth's insecurities,
Now the truth has gone underground,
Where it is always pushed.

The youth are not misunderstood,
They just don't understand how
The lives of adults are full of
Zombie walking.

Some of our youth,
or a lot for the most part,
Have fallen for the lies
Of corporate demons.

Yet in America there still exists,
Youth who engage,
Socratic questioning and sincere
Love. Where do we stand?

Keep America alive,
it with us that they appeal,
Don't find your confidence in
Corporate marketing feels.

Always keep a strong mind,
We're America's youth.
We want the truth,
We do not want to give our money to you.

First explain,
Why you always captalize,
Why you always scrutinize
The voice of America, The voice of Democracy.

Screw material virtues,
Screw your corporate ambitions,
Screw your self-medicating propaganda
Screw your interest group.

Gain for us and gain
For America,
Love, Respect and
Understanding.

Your vices are divisive,
While you sit in your chair,
America itself will no longer be here,
Unless we look towards our deepest fears.

Fears grounded in false
truths through irrelevant
propaganda,
Why must our youth always surrender?

When life hits them hard,
and it's no longer funny,
After the corporations
have taken their money.

Feeding like vultures,
There must be a new voice.
The underground scene has
No other choice.

Popular Music and
Writing and poetry.
Are only a way of selling
Your soul.

Make a difference,
Not a profit,
You demonic fools.
Corrupt individuals with corrupt tools.

Do not stop questioning,
Do not stop growing.
Do not stop your confidence.
Do not give in.

Lets pursue the goal
America intends,
Freedom and justice,
Not corporate ends.

You take me as I am, girl I'm a take you as you are

Cause I take you as you are, you're a star

You're my girl (you're my man)
You're my lady (you're my baby)
You're my baby (my honey)

When Someone Tells You That You Are Wrong

he stands there
with a pointing finger
telling you that your
skirt is too short
and your legs are
too long,

whatever, he thinks
that you are a mistake of
this universe
and that God perhaps
lost attention
when nature tried to
give you shape

be confident
shy away from people like them
turn inward
find that light inside the
secret place of your heart
and listen:

did it not tell you that you are the precious
child of the universe
that you are no less than the moon and the stars
and the trees
and that by all means you have
the right to be here?

desiderata, right?
recall, and then look straight at that
magnified critique
don't say anything
dismiss him as nothing
but a mistake of
the magician's illusion
he does not exist
it is only you
and nothing else
who really matters

There You Are Behind To Follow

Whatever to you is said,
There you are behind to follow.
Whatever to you is read,
There you are behind to follow.

You don't even use your head.
Instead it might as well be dead.
Nothing in it is prepared.
And you show you don't care.

Whatever to you is said,
There you are behind to follow.
Whatever to you is read,
There you are behind to follow.

You don't even use your head.
Instead it might as well be dead.
Whatever to you is said,
You show you don't really care.

You don't even use your head.
But there you are behind to follow.
The use of it is dead instead.
Because what's in it has been borrowed.

You don't even use your head.
Because what's in it has been borrowed.
The use to you is dead instead.
Since all you do is really follow.
All you do is really follow.
All you do is really follow.
All you do is really follow.

Whatever to you is said,
There you are behind to follow.
Whatever to you is read,
There you are behind to follow.
Whatever to you is said,
There you are behind to follow.

All you do is really follow.
There you are behind to follow.
All you do is really follow.
On time you think can be borrowed.
To follow.
On time you think can be borrowed.
To follow.

On time you think can be borrowed,
There for you to follow...
All that has been done!
There for you to follow...
All that has been done!
