The Dutchman

The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That holds his dreams in
That's a secret only Margaret knows
 
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast, she believes him
He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow
He's mad as he can be, Margaret only sees that sometimes
Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
Dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes
And his cap and coat are patched with the love
Margaret sewed there
Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam
 
He watches tugboats down canals
And calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain
Margaret comes to take him home again
Through the unforgiving streets that trip him
Though she holds his arm
Sometimes he thinks he's alone and he calls her name
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
The winter whirls the windmills 'round
She winds his muffler tighter, they sit in the kitchen
Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew
 
He sees her for a moment, he calls her name
And she makes the bed up, singing some old love song
She learned it when the song was very new
He hums a line or two, they hum together in the dark
The Dutchman falls asleep, Margaret blows the candles out
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me

We Cut The Night

Outside it's nighttime and you're mine again
Red lights and thick frost are clothing all the land
Your breath draws a cloud on the window of our car
Our eyes exhausted, still begging for more
Engraved in wildness, have we gone too far?
Somewhere four wheels unwind the roar of their power
This road is a snake skin, glittering and bald
Like a reptile, that gash the frozen soil
 
The world is not ours
But faster than the rain
We cut the night
We're random bullets, love
Shot by some drunken god
Guilty only, of growing old
 
Hours like fires, burning our beliefs
Soon the sun will rise up and sew us in its dreams
Forgetting that we're sailors, without wind in our sails
Twins by the heartbeat until the morning brakes
Dismissed in dizziness, and begging for more
Have we ever noticed that nothing last for ever?
Faces toward the sky, 'cause the unknown is sublime
Printing every hour in polaroids of mine
 
The world is not ours
But faster than the rain
We cut the night
We're random bullets, love
Shot by some drunken god
Oh guilty only, oh guilty only
Of growing old, of growing old
Of growing old, of growing old
Of growing old
 
Hours like fires, burning our beliefs
Truth is right there baby, even if we bleed
Night roads are coal coats on the muscles
Of the world, leading us to nowhere
'Cause nowhere is our home
Nowhere is our home
Oh guilty only, of growing old
 
We're random bullets, love
The world is not ours
But faster than the rain
We cut the night
 
We're random bullets, love
The world is not ours
But faster than the rain
We cut the night
 

Fat Cats, Bigga Fish

[Hook]
Get down, get down, get down (x4)
 
[Verse 1 - Boots Riley]
It's almost 10 o'clock, see, I gotta ball of lint for property
So I slip my beanie on sloppily
And promenade out to take up a collection
I got game like I read the directions
I'm wishing that I had an automobile
As I feel the cold wind rush past
But let me state that I'm a hustler for real
So you know I got the stolen bus pass
Just as the bus pulls up and I step to the rear
This old lady look like she drank a 40 of fear
I see my old-school partner, said his brother got popped
Pay my respects, 'can you ring the bell? We came to my stop'
The street light reflects off the piss on the ground
Which reflects off the hamburger sign as it turns round
Which reflects off the chrome of the BMW
Which reflects off the fact that I am broke
Now what the fuck is new?
I need loot, I spot the motherfucka in the tweed suit
And I'm in his ass quicker than a kick from a greased boot
Eased up slow and discreet
Could tell he was suspicious by the way he slid his feet
Didn't want to fuck up the come-up
So I smiled with my eyes said 'hey, how's it hanging guy?'
Bumped into his shoulder, but he passed with no reaction
Damn this motherfucka had hella Andrew Jacksons!
I'm a thief, or pickpocket - give a fuck what you call it
Used to call em 'fat cats', now I just call them wallets
Getting Federal: ain't just a klepto
Mastercard or Visa? I gladly accept those
Sneaky motherfucka with a scam, know how to pull it
Got a mirror in my pocket, but that won't stop no bullets
Story just begun, but you already know
Ain't no need to get down, shit, I'm already low
 
[Hook]
Get down, get down, get down (x4)
 
[Verse 2]
My footsteps echo in the darkness
My teeth clenched tight like a fist in the cold sharp mist
I look down and I hear my stomach growling
Step to Burger King to attack it like a Shaolin
I never pay for shit that I can get by doing dirt
Link up to the girl cashier and start to flirt
All up in her face and her breath was like murder
Damn, the shit I do for a free hamburger!
('Well you got my number, you gonna call me tonight?')
It depends: is them burgers attached to a price?
I'm just kidding, I'mma call, even write you love letters
Thanks for the burgers, um...hook me up with a Dr Pepper
('That's cool, you want some ice?')
Yeah, and some fries would be hella nice
('Damn my manager's coming, play it off, okay? 'Have a nice day!'')
I'm up outta here anyway
 
I use peoples before they use me
Cause you could get got by an Uzi over an OZ
That's what an OG told me
Gots to find someplace warm and cozy to eat the Victuals that I just got
Came to an underground parking lot
'This place is good as any, fuck, it's all good'
Walked in, found a car, hopped and sat up on the hood
Ate my burger, threw back my cola
Somebody said 'hey'; it was a rent-a-pig, I thought it was a roller
'Want me to call the cops?' I don't want them to see me
Looked down and saw that I was sitting on a Lamborghini
It was Rollses, Ferraris and Jags by the dozen
A building door opened; damn, it was my cousin
Getting of of work, dressed up, no lie
Tux, cummerbund and a black bow tie
I was like 'hey!' ('Who is it?') 'me'
('Oh, what's up man, I just quit this company
They're hella racist and the pay was too low')
I said 'right, what was up in there though?'
('A party with rich motherfuckas, I don't know the situation
I know they got cabbage, owning corporations
IBM, Chrysler and shit is what they said')
Just then a light bulb went off in my head
'They be thinking all black folks is resembling
Give me your tux and I'll do some pocket-swindling'
Finna to change in the bathroom and not freeze off my nuts
Lets take a short break while I get into this tux
 
Damn… I`m ready.
 
[Hook]
Get down, get down, get down (x4)
 
[Verse 3]
Fresh, dressed like a million bucks
I be the flyest motherfucka in an afro and a tux
My arm is at a right angle, up, silver tray in my hand
'May I interest you in some caviar, ma'am?'
My eyes shoot around the room there and here
Noticing the diamonds in the chandelier
Background Barry Manilow, Copacabana
And a strong-ass scent of stogies from Havana
Wasn't no place where a brother might've been
Snobby old ladies drinking champagne with rich white men
Alright then: let's begin this
Nights like this is good for business
Five minutes in the mix, noticed several different cliques
Talking, giggling and shit
With, one motherfucka in betwixt
And everybody else jocking him, throttling
Found out later he owns Coca Cola bottling
Talking to a black man who he's confused
We looking hella-bougie
Ass all tight and seditty
Recognized him as the mayor of my city
Who treats young black men like Frank Nitti
Mr Coke said to Mr Mayor: 'you know, we got a process like Ice T's hair
We put up the funds for your election campaign
And, oh, um, waiter can you bring the champagne?
Our real estate firm says opportunity's arousing
To make some condos out of low-income housing
Immediately, we need some media heat
To say that gangs run the street and then we bring in the police fleet!
Harass and beat everybody til they look inebriated
When we buy the land, motherfuckas will appreciate it
Don't worry about the Urban League or Jesse Jackson
My man that owns Marlboro donated a fat sum'
 
That's when I stepped back some to contemplate what few know
Sat down, wrestled with my thoughts like a sumo
Ain't no one player that could beat this lunacy
Ain't no hustler on the street could do a whole community
This is how deep shit can get
It reads 'macaroni' on my birth certificate
'Puddin'-Tane' is my middle name, but I can't hang
I'm getting hustled only knowing half the game

Double bank

The road ahead, lies dark and black
But there's no way I'm turning back
The message is clear, the feeling's gone
The fuses, switched off
 
We been waiting for our ship for so long it makes no sense
Every reason to stay on seems to be gone
We've been craving side by side
For something new, for something good
The devil waiting to light a spark in our lives
A little blue will become us
 
You're sucking the life right out of me
But I say goodbye without bitterness
This madness and voids must come to an end
Before it consumes us
 
We been waiting for our ship for so long it makes no sense
Every reason to stay on seems to be gone
We've been craving side by side
For something new, for something good
The devil waiting to light a spark in our lives
A little blue will become us
 
There's no set up, there's no score
A double blank with no call
All we gained since we started up these grades
And whatever there was between us
We have reached the final end
Like a speedboat bursting through the darkest night
 
A little blue will become us
A little blue will become us
