Change Of The Seasons (Akir)

[Chorus: Akir + Hasan] This is beginning and end, the answer and the reason This the life and the death, the changin of the seasons It's the joy and the pain, the angels and the demons It's a wonderous thing, the changin of the seasons This is beginning and end, the answer and the reason This the life and the death, the changin of the seasons It's the joy and the pain, the angels and the demons It's a wonderous thing [Hasan Salaam:] In the winter of his discontent He was birthed like a verse from the gospel Pops was ghost, moms played host to the Johns in the brothel Never heard any words to encourage out his mom's mouth How to cook up all the hook-ups, was learned from the men that she let in the house, turned out by the business Missed a lot more than Christmas, giftless, childhood was a juvenile hell Knew his number better than himself as he peered down his cell [Akir:] Out of the darkness, in a cold labyrinth that haunts us, his man parks up Pullin heat out compartments like, spring into action Cash is satisfaction, I'm sunk askin him livin life hype He observes but back to the curb to sound the white birds and NexTel chirps, he can tell he's accustomed by his 2-way alert New opportunties blossomed, from niggaz he met locked in and old niggaz that he knew that acted like they just forgot him (uhh) [Chorus] [Hasan Salaam:] Life seemed like mid summer night's dream Got a crib and a queen - first seed on the way due November 17th, shorty settin the scene Beggin him to get his act clean to the right side of the law But his audience was the money machine's constant applause Never concerned with the effects, just out for the cause To get back what he lost, he hustled at all cost Started to floss foolish, pigs watchin the movements Every clue got his Judas [Akir:] Uhh, he holds onto the wall hopin that he won't fall, feelin his life slip away Watchin the leaves float away, in the yard The closest that he gets to guard the only bars he thought he'd be in would be filled with pretty women and TV's playin ESPN And now he can't control his peein The family that he never had but used to seein in his daydreamin turn they back and started leavin Come to demons and that instant turns to a infant, the change of seasons [Chorus] [Outro:] This is beginning and end, the answer and the reason This the life and the death, the changin of the seasons It's the joy and the pain, the angels and the demons It's a wonderous thing
