"Long Time"

[Produced by Beirut]

Oh, no, no, no, no-no
Well, it's been a long time, long time now
Since I've seen you smile

[Verse 1]
I wonder if Gladys smiles when angels bring my name up
Or change language and subject change up

Her boy's a long way from red dogs and green rangers
Things ain't been the same since Ms. Patterson called me famous
I saw your reflection in a toilet full of vomit water
You don't think I felt ya hand on my head, yelling: "Call his father"?

But people don't hear ghosts, so how they gon' play me?
Money saved me, so I'ma do the same thing
You're droppin' pounds, gettin' small on some sick sh*t
Like, how you got the drive, but don't know how to use a stick shift?
You better not miss this, overdose, dope and mixes
Let ya throat close with a boatload of dope quotes within it
Blast off

[Verse 2]
Dropping tapes 'til I losted count, coughing out blood
Dropping weight like I lost an ounce

Throwing words and tossing nouns
NY traveling, I'm Boston bound, bossing 'round homies
And talking down to shorties while I'm jotting down
Notes to spit to Harlem crowns
Surfing through the Harlem crowds

At the crib, I'm falling down
Yeah, I'm steady crawling 'round
I'm calling out to God
Your little angels falling down
Save me from my darkened cloud
Reach your hands and arms around
