Drop It Like A Fire Engine Lyrics

by Time

Drop it like a tranny

The caravan is planned
Get the camels, and the candles
We're gonna light the way, let the darkness be dismantled
With lightbulbs, flashlights, stars and matches
I'm cutting up sadness with hatchets and gadgets
Steal money, you're a thief
Steal country, you're a king
Steal my pen, I'll still speak
Steal my voice, I'll still sing
Cause too many people wanna come this way
From dope to the pope to opus dei
The Mediterranean's changing him
Mermaids, to braids, cowards arent afraid
Where you going
I don't really know but I'll be there soon
I'll be in a suit
I'll be there by noon
With firecrackers and balloons
2 negatives make a positive
My last 2 albums gotta lot to give
Depressions losing oxygen
My happiness there's no stopping him
Even if he had some cement moccasins
I sing the body electric
Cowards are pathetic
It don't matter where you're headed
Just don't regret it
As long as it was the truth when you said it

O drop that fire engine out of your mouth
If you don't really know what you're talking about

Those were the good days
These are the better
Tomorrow's the best
So what's the rest?
I'm 17% out of my body
Looking at salavdor dali
Running around in bollywood
Smoking on berries like holly should
Cause it's all good in moderation
Yeah that's Time I think he's wasted
Lose your addictions or be a patient
Here comes victory, can you taste it?

It's on my lips, it's on my tongue
It's on my spit, it's on the drums
It's on me, it's on everyone
My soul is old my heart is young
Palms towards the east, here comes the sun
Take me back to the day
When candy tasted like cough medicine
Joy let it begin
Happy thoughts let em in
In the clouds is where chris' head has been
There's no such thing as onry
I'm wearing a red sweater with michele gondry
I'm coming with my army with cornbread bombing
Mos def spawned me
I'm independent, that means I do my own laundry
There's a guy with big hands
He wants a calendar of disasters and clouds
That float from piano notes
Dirty lab's the fam, doctype gave me hope
I'm in paradise, drop the anchor on the boat
Lifting wineglasses as time passes
In my past is where my wrath is
Along with the fascists
Depression and sadness got into head on crashes
Fantastic
This may be over your head
So put your arms in the air maybe you can catch it

O drop that fire engine out of your mouth
If you don't really know what you're talking about

Gimme a friend, don't give me a cage
Gimme a voice and they will come
Gimme myself I'll give me trust
Gimme a pen I'll live on stage
Don't give me a choice just give me the numb
Don't give me wealth just give me the rush
Give me rain for a 1000 years and I won't give you rust

Drop it like a tranny

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

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
