Ice Cube Take Me Away

[Ice Cube]

Hahaha, today was a good day

Know what?, sometimes I just get on my knees

You know what I mean?

And pray to the man with the master plan

To swoop on down (swoop on down)

On that mothership, scoop a nigga up…

Lord have mercy, my people so thirsty

Come feed ’em, either Jesus or Muhammad

All we get is vomit, come like a comet

Put it in my brain Lord, put it in my stomach

Only you can run it, I’ma learn from it

Do what I gotta do, try not to plummet

America eats its youth like reptiles

Don’t worry bout tomorrow, let’s get this right now

They want to run us in the ground

Educate yourself before they dumb you down

Get your money boy, the legal way

Beat ’em with they own bullshit if you may

Now rich white men they got the world fucked up

Why should I give a fuck about a styrofoam cup?

Environmental scene, I’ll keep it clean

But if I go green, you know what I mean, bitch

[Chorus]

Take me away from these people

Take me away from these people

(Take me away)

Take me away from these people

Take me away from these people

[Ice Cube]

Ice Cube for President

Let’s just do it for the hell of it

See how I’d run the government – make money irrelevant

I might tell a chick, it’s illegal to be celibate

Secret Service don’t know where the hell I went

Sorry y’all, I had to fuck a Superdelegate

Dream ticket, Ice Cube and Obama

American dream, Ice Cube and yo’ mama

The Terminator, are you Sarakana?

Arnold Schwarzenegger, can kill who he wanna?

In California, they strap you to a gurney

And murder yo’ ass, in front of your attorney

Do you really wanna take this journey?

Ain’t scared of none of y’all motherfuckers like Bernie

Mac (step back) Step back, I got the Mac-11

Unlike Obama, I’ma have to back my reverand

[Chorus]

Take me away from these people

Take me away from these people

(Take me away)

Take me away from these people

Take me away from these people

[Ice Cube]

Now the Lord is my shepherd, my flow is respected

Worldwide, from the West I got to rep it

So please check it, ’cause my style is infected

with the virus, Ice Cube’s the Osiris

I bail through, they wanna put me up in Bellevue

Cause my point of view is not red, white and blue

It’s black and blue residue

I know what crack can do, to a whole fuckin’ avenue

Speak on it and they’ll get mad at you

You think I do this bullshit for your gratitude?

I’m a Nigga With a Attitude

I’ma do what I gotta do just to change my latitude

Pimp the system, rollin’ with my diamonds glistenin’

And niggaz listenin’, from your local prison

I’m a prism, your only vision is a rainbow

in the sky when I spit the ism, come on

[Chorus]

Take me away from these people

(Take me away)

Take me away from these people

(Take me away)

Take me away from these people

(Take me away)

Take me away from these people
