THE PROJECTS Lyrics

by Handsome Boy Modeling School

It may take a long time but my house will last forever
And it will have been worth it
What are you going to build your house with?

Yo I'm stayin' where we gettin' crazy love
My noisy neighbors live just above me
Up in 13-A, there's drama everyday
The Super say he gon' fix the heat for sure

Tchk, I done heard it five times before three locks on every door
'Cause some folks got the tendency to take
It ain't Beverly Hills, more like Stephanie Mills
I never knew love like this could ever exist

Four corners in your metropolis yo it's the PJays pah
We exquisite like cars made in foreign see ain't a day out here
Ever boring where gunshots keep you up instead of heavy snoring
Pipes dripping, instead of rivers pouring

The elevator's broken down
(Damn!)
And man I'm needin' a lift
Thank God we don't stay up on the twenty-fifth floor
Yo we ain't always at war it's a lot about the Projects
I do adore

But you wouldn't understand it the PJays is like another planet
Heavy like granite you wouldn't understand it
The cops will catch you drawers down red-handed, it's outlandish
But you wouldn't understand it the PJays is like another planet
You wouldn't understand it the cops will catch you drawers down
Red-handed, it's outlandish yo it's the PJays

('Cause where I come from where we live is called the Projects)
The PJays
('Cause where I come from you might, might, might, might get done)
The PJays
('Cause where I come from where we live is called the Projects)
The PJays
('Cause where I come from what was that you said?)

Come to our projects bout fo' in the morning
So I can tell you what be goin' on there
One block gunshots some hot stuff
Sell it to you for a buck, boy that ain't enough

(C'mon)
Handcuffs on your brother man my wife's wonderin'
When you gonna fix that tenant's plumbing man?
I'm tired this ghetto's cool but it's on fire
I see this fool with a crack pipe, lookin' wired

Hookers for hire, look at the plywood
(What, look)
On the building where termites is living
(EW)
My wife sleeps peacefully, it ain't easy to me
'Cause I'm tripping off these peoples with they thievery

Black white Chicano, hell if I know
Every guy know about the stolen cell phone
I got the hook up police got me shook up in court, can't even fart
It's okay though, I got the building, that pay dough

But some tenants act like they can say no
(Hey)
I'm gettin' older in my years feel me? I got a folder worth of fears
(Yup)
But it's cool, we gotta make it better don't take my sweater
(Make it better, c'mon)
Y'all make my head hurt I ain't even gonna finish this song
It's too long I'ma watch Cops, in my La-Z-Boy, in my thong

But you wouldn't understand it the PJays is like another planet
Heavy like granite you wouldn't understand it
The cops will catch you drawers down red-handed, it's outlandish
But you wouldn't understand it the PJays is like another planet
You wouldn't understand it the cops will catch you drawers down
Red-handed, it's outlandish yo it's the PJays

('Cause where I come from where we live is called the Projects)
The PJays
('Cause where I come from you might, might, might, might get done)
The PJays
('Cause where I come from where we live is called the Projects)
The PJays
('Cause where I come from what was that you said?)

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
