lyrics

How Much Is Water?
Way back when Fard asked Elijah. On this earth how many square miles are land and how much is water? Allah let me draw it up fast forward. How much is water? How much is water? How much is water? How much is water? Way back when Fard asked Elijah. On this earth how many square miles are land and how much is water? Allah let me draw it up fast forward. How much is water? How much is water? How much is water? Allow me to draw it up.
Two questions that I’m asking. For my lil ole 5 year plan. 1 How much is water? 2 How much s land? Geography’s not what I’m thinking. I mean real estate and for drinking. You’d never guess which one’s more premium. Like it’s aint our whole means and medium. Tank level on the fresh been sinking. Before it hits E let that sink in. They say don’t shit where you eat. But where you sip is stinking. Not just how much is water. How much of that water is clean. For your meat to live in and your drink. Tub and kitchen sink. Whole earth three quarters water. Can’t get a whole bottle with three quarters. Whole body three quarters water. You literally buy yourself. Feel like I’m all by myself. How are we all by ourselves? All standing right by each other. Pulling bottled tap water off shelves. Yawl talking about save this planet. But the planet’s gonna be just fine. Man might not be surviving. Beyond that new horizon. Sea level just keep on rising. This weather is not surprising. Mother nature is undefeated. Think she feel like compromising? Just like these corporations. More powerful than half these nations. Community, humanity, wholistic. Sounds like why yawl hating. Get money fuck patience. Got money still got no patience. Preying on they patrons. Think they feel like negotiating. Charge poor what they don’t have to get what they can’t live or work without. Tax your spot and pump it out. Front like they really gonna work it out. Hide your lakes, hide your wells, hide your springs, shit hide your hydro. That’s where they go to hide the toxins. Mad drugs in your water cycle. On accident and on purpose. The more you know the more nervous. Can’t even keep track of what’s in there. Your government at your service. Fuck your lawn, fuck your golf course, fuck your fountain, fuck your dam. When we fighting over water like oil you’ll understand. Man!
Way back when Fard asked Elijah. On this earth how many square miles are land and how much is water? Allah let me draw it up fast forward. How much is water? How much is water? How much is water? How much is water? Way back when Fard asked Elijah. On this earth how many square miles are land and how much is water? Allah let me draw it up fast forward. How much is water? How much is water?How much is water?
Look. Everybody rappin. But only few can flow. Among that few that flow really though how much is water? Among that chosen water really though how much is fresh? Crystal clear in your ear not that wrong food pumping fear. I see some of yawl sippin that Kool Aid. A lot of us love that grape soda. Some think there drink is the bomb though. With a plastic grenade full of quarter water. Like what the hell is that blue flavor? White bark raspberries aint neon bright. Some of yawl drink Idiocracy. Braggin’ ‘bout the electrolytes. I mean drink whatever you want. I’d just be sure to drink what I need too. All this music is food for thought. Watch what these rappers feed you. How much is water really worth if when you don’t pay it evaporates? Free download swimming upstream. Trying to wake up from my American dream? My craft man? My skill trade? This aint no get rich quick scheme. This hard work. It’s a labor of love. This art work. From the heavens above. That wisdom getting passed down. But then passed up like pass over. Don’t take these flows for granted. Even if my cup runneth over I. Told yawl on that “Half A Glass”. Always room for improvement.. If you don’t want your assets frozen apply some heat to this movement. Your favorite artist be moonlighting you shrug your shoulders. It’s just he tide? Well if you let that well run dry then maybe your thirst is justified.
