Killah Priest – Gate Way Lyrics

[Killah Priest]
There’s a season for everything
A time for every occupation of the heaven
A time for givin’ birth
A time for dyin’
A time for for plannin’
A time for uprooted that which was planted
A time for killin’
A time for healin’
A time for knockin’ down
A time for buildin’
A time for tears
A time for laughter
A time for mournin’
A time for dancin’
A time for throwin’ stones away
A time for gatherin’ them up
A time for embracin’
A time to refrain from embracin’
A time for searchin’
A time for losin’
A time for keepin’
A time for throwin’ away
A time for tearin’
A time for sewin’
A time for keepin’ silent
A time for speakin’
A time for lovin’
A time for hatin’
A time for war
A time for peace

So what does a man gain for the efforts that he makes?
I contemplate the task
‘The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away’
Thy horse is a spirit waitin’ me near they graves
A ghost rider leaps out on the saddle of it
Then the horse begins runnin’
Upward beyond an orange summit
That same horse saddled in my cousin and billions of dozens
Before their bones begin crumblin’
To their grave from the mother’s stomach
Well, my nephew he wrote one
To that bowl sun, his mother followed him
Way up into the outer realms
Where the clouds are crowded wit men
At night the goons are prowlin’ for gems
There’s place for grandparents
A far advanced planet
Where dreams go, where Kings and Queens souls
Where everything seems slow
2Pac moves in that dark, Biggie is seein’ at our city
It’s misty; Jam Master Jay is in that haze
Big L as well, he dwells wit Big Pun in that Kingdom
And J. Dillinger and the millions of souls
Many more will have to go, reason why? I don’t know

You try to stay focus, watchin’ for that day approaches
You got the coverage of the Lord’s judgment
The blood rinse off your soft body
Then placed in the arms of your mommy
She placed you in a potty
Fast forward, you in a staircase in your lobby
Watchin’ fiends goin’ out on apartment 5-D
Well I know this crackhead name Brother Lord
Always watchin’ him huggin’ the floor
Many get high and many souls have to fly
The Bible says we all have to die
You look for reasons, I don’t know why
This is where the ghetto spirits carve tonight
No owls in flight, no sound in sight
As we float like a cloud thru the dark light
Barkin’ of buncha old worn out dogs nobody wants
Hounds from hell, the starvin’ night haunts
The flesh is unveiled, pure spirit unbothered by gravity
A body weight to a Godly place
Then drift into the internal night
As they take the eternal flight
They see your majesty, the Gatekeeper
The great weepers, the grave’s deeper
And the night is frostbit
So long back to the darkness

That’s enough, your majesty, that’s enough
Shhhhh… You’re sworn into secrecy, say no more
But Father…
No one must know about the hidden door
Close the door and move out the way
Close the door

Run DMC – Jam-Master Jay (Run-Dmc Deluxe Reissue Album)

Kick off shoes, jump on the jock
Listen to the Jam Master as he starts to rock
His name is Jay and he’s on his way
To be the best DJ in the US of A

J-a-y are the letters of his name
Cutting and scratching are the aspects of his game
So check out the Master as he cuts these jams
And look at us with the mics in our hands
Then take a count, 1 2 3
Jam Master Jay, Run-D.M.C

He’s Jam Master Jay, the big beat blaster
He gets better cause he knows he has to
In ’84 he’ll be a little faster
And only practice makes a real Jam Master

We’re live as can be but we’re not singing the blues
We got to tell all y’all the good news
The good news is that there is a crew
Not 5, not 4, not 3, just 2
2 MC’s who are claiming the fame
And all other things won’t be the same
Beacause it’s about time for a brand new group
Run-D.M.C. to put you up on the scoop
We make the fly girls scream in ecstacy
We rock the freshest rhymes at a party
We put all the fellas in a daze
It’s everyone that we amaze
And we got the master of a disco scratch
There’s not a break that he can’t catch
Jam Master Jay that is his name
And all wild DJ’s he will tame
Behind the turntables is where he stands
Then there is the movement of his hands
So when asked who’s the best, y’all should say:
"Run-D.M.C. and Jam Master Jay"

Jam Master Jay is the one in charge
It’s up to him to rock beats that are truly large
He is the master of the scratch and cut
So move your arms, so move your legs
So won’t you move your butt

We’re not talking ground, we’re not talking sky
We’re not talking low, we’re not talking high
We’re not talking big, we’re not talking small
We want all of the people on off the wall
We’re not talking night, we’re not talking day
But we’re talking bout Jam Master Jay

Eminem – Kings Never Die lyrics

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani]
Here to stay
Even when I’m gone
When I close my eyes
Through the passage of time
Kings never die

[Verse 1: Eminem]
I can hear the drummers drumming
And the trumpets, someone’s tryna summon someone, I know something’s coming
But I’m running from it to be standing at the summit
And plummet, how come it wasn’t what I thought it was
Was it, too good to be true?
Have nothing, get it all but too much of it
Then lose it again, then I swallow hallucinogens
Cause if not, where the hell did it go?
Cause here I sit in Lucifer’s den by the dutch oven
Just choosing to sin
Even if it means I’m selling my soul, just to be the undisputed again
Do whatever I gotta do just to win
Cause I got this motherfucking cloud over my head
Crown around it, thorns on it
Cracks in it, bet you morons didn’t
Think I’d be back, did ya?
How ’bout that I’m somehow now back to the underdog
But no matter how loud that I bark, this sport is something I never bow-wow’d at
I complain about the game, I shout and I pout, it’s a love-hate
But I found out that I can move a mountain of doubt
Even when you bitches are counting me out, and I appear to be down for the count
Only time I ever been out and about is driving around town with my fucking whereabouts, in a doubt cause
I been lost tryna think of what I did to get here but I’m not a quitter
Gotta get up, give it all I got or give up
Spit or shit or stepped on but kept going
I’m tryna be headstrong but it feels like I slept on my neck wrong
Cause you’re moving onto the next, but is the respect gone?
Cause someone told me that
(Kings never die)

[Verse 2: Eminem]
Don’t give me that sob story liar, don’t preach to the choir
You ain’t ever have to reach in the fire to dig deep
Nobody ever handed me shit in life, not even a flyer
Wouldn’t even take shit into consideration
Obliterate anyone in the way
I think I see why a lot of rappers get on these features and try to show out on a track with me
But it’d actually have to be a fucking blowout to get me to retire
Tell these new artists that kings never die
I know shit has changed in this age, fuck a Twitter page, did just say I’ve been upstaged?
Why am I online? It’s driving me crazy, I’m riding shotgun tryna get a gauge
Almost hot, but I’m not running kaboom, with a stage pass and this shit
And opinions sway, I can hear them say, if I stay passionate maybe I can stay Jay miraculous
Comeback as if I went away, but detractors just say some bullshit for the Renegade
Someone’s gonna make me blow my composure
Here I go again, to the stage and I feel like I’m in a cage
They so want a champion to fall
I still wonder why I laugh at ’em cause why carry when I’m all
So fuck what these cynics say
Just goes to show that when my back’s against the wall
And I’m under attack again, I’ll act as if I’m posted up
With this pented rage cause saw all these plaques in my office
On the floor stacked against the door
All be just metaphors for the odds of
When you comin’ back again cause all the accomplishments, accolades, awards
And trophies just don’t mean jack anymore
Cause I’m here today and gone tomorrow
And I’m not gonna be

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani]
Here to stay
Even when I’m gone
When I close my eyes
Through the passage of time
Kings never die

[Verse 3: Eminem]
I want it, I’m coming to get it, so you son of a bitches don’t duck your gun and get rid of those
Critics all end up in critical, think your shit is dope all you’re gonna get is smoked then
And I’m not stopping until I’m top again, all alone and on a throne
Like a token of respect, or a homage poem, or an ode, I’ve been on
Tossed in the air by my own arm, and launched so hard I broke my collarbone
And it’s my time to go, but I’m still not leaving
Stop for no one, I don’t know but I’ve been told that I should go
Launch a Rover, knock it over, time to go for that pot of gold, cause

[Bridge: Eminem]
They say kings never die
Just ask Jam Master Jay
They just grow wings and they fly
So, hands up, reach for the sky
Try to hold up and provoke these moments
Cause in a blink of an eye
They’ll be over

[Verse 4: Eminem]
Tryna secure your legacy like Shakur
And ensure that nobody’s ever gonna be what you were
So before you’re leaving this Earth
You want people to feel the fury of a pure evil cerebral berzerk
Deacon of words, syllable genius at work
Plus I’m think that they’re mistaking my kindness for weakness, distill it with meanness
With some kind of back flipping burgers on the grill for some peanuts
Secure us to arenas, call me Gilbert Arenas, still appeal to the dreamers
I made it to the silverscreen where Rocky stepped with the demons
Khalil on the beat cause making the beat ain’t the same feeling to me is killing the beat
It’s overfilling to me, what filling a seat is
That sound, vomit, thirst and how common underground commons eat
Outsider stomach growl, throbbing hunger
Out-rhyming everyone, God just give me one shot
I swear that I won’t let you down
I’mma be around forever, entertain even in the ground
You ain’t ever gonna hear me say I ain’t

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani]
Here to stay
Even when I’m gone
When I close my eyes
Through the passage of time
Kings never die
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Kings never die
