Before and After Lyrics

by Eyedea & Abilities

F/ Blueprint

[Chorus] [Both]
You gotta realize you're fuckin' with the baddest
Make these so called rappers reevaluate their status
[Eyedea]
Cause before we touch the mic you actually were believin'
That bullshit you do is called MCin'
[Blueprint]
That ain't MCin'!
[Both]
You gotta realize you're fuckin' with the baddest
Make these so called rappers reevaluate their status
[Blueprint]
Cause after we rock the mic you cats will stop believin'
That that bullshit you do should even be called MCin'

[Verse One] [Eyedea]
Ayo peep it
I don't brag and boast for pure recreation
If I say I'll serve a rapper, I'm just givin' you useful information
You already proved that you're fake
Chokin' in a vocal booth, pokin' holes in your swollen throat
Hopelessly redoing your takes
I'll whip that crew into shape
Embarrass you so bad that arrogance you had
Will turn into a voice, tellin' you to move outta state
Wait, let me guess
You're the dopest out of everyone you know
And got the balls to think you can fuck with a pro
I don't think so
You need to re-evaluate what you're doin', Blueprint
And Eye-dea re-define this shit called rhymin' stupid
High and drenched felines, that why I don't make battle music
Cause I don't need to write songs about battlin' bitch
I do it
So tell your camp, if anyone got beef
They can pick a place to meet and I'll greet them with defeat
But, if not
Tell them to keep comin' to the shows
Wavin' their hands, yellin' "Ho" like the fans we all know
Yo

[Chorus] [Both]
You gotta realize you're fuckin' with the baddest
Make these so called rappers reevaluate their status
[Blueprint]
Because before we hit the stage you were actually believin'
What you did prior to this was MCin'
[Eyedea]
That ain't MCin'!
[Both]
You gotta realize you're fuckin' with the baddest
Make these so called rappers reevaluate their status
[Eyedea]
Cause after we rip the mic you kids will stop believin'
That the bullshit you and your boys do on the weekend is MCin'

[Verse Two] [Blueprint]
I got the feelin'
I've already hear your verse
So any turn that you take will only be a turn for the worse
That's the truth and I know it hurts
You're so bad, I'll have the last laugh even when I rhyme first
I hear the frontin'
I hear loud talkin'
I see the posin'
And I hear the dogs barkin'
But listen dog nuts, you ain't a hard target
Cause every bar you rhyme is just a nail in your coffin
Every battle is another chance to see a cat lose to me
I don't write battle raps
I write eulogies
For herbs that got nerve that think they can't be wack
Cause they undefeated in the mirror, battlin' fantasy cats
I rep
Grown band, get man handle rap
You rep open toed sandals and fanny packs
Beat Blueprint or Eyedea?
Can't see that
We'll give you a free ale plus your sanity back
Bitch

[Chorus] [Both]
You gotta realize you're fuckin' with the baddest
Make these so called rappers reevaluate they status
[Eyedea]
Cause before we hit your circle you weakling were believin'
What you did before we got there was MCin'
[Blueprint]
That ain't MCin'!
[Both]
You gotta realize you're fuckin' with the baddest
Make these so called rappers reevaluate they status
[Blueprint]
Cause after we rock the mic you cats will stop believin'
That the bullshit you do should even be called MCin'

[Verse Three] [Eyedea]
So
Have you figured out what the fuck you doin' wrong yet?
[Blueprint]
Cats with no stage presence shouldn't rock a long set
[Eyedea]
If you're comin' to my show, you better have a strong neck
[Blueprint]
Cause heads nod way out of control when we're on deck
[Eyedea]
Man, I couldn't keep myself awake for the five minutes your song stretch
[Blueprint]
They can't move a crowd cause they lack the arm strength
The kinda cats that I'd rather keep at arm's length
Frontin' like they hard when we know that they harmless
[Eyedea]
These MC's
They be the first to get scared
While we kickin' verses, they weep, squeezin' a teddy bear
The Orphanage turned your concept of a rap career
From a pretty day dream into your worse nightmare
[Blueprint]
Ah yes, right there
The feelin' of perfection, quite rare
Fully loaded mic bullies, Blueprint, Eyedea
I can smell victory in the night's air
Weightless, Rhymesayers

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
