lyrics

Imago Dei:
Rolling down the road/ eyes closed mind open/ Liver soaking, trying to stay focused/ Hoping this thunderbird can drown my sorrow/ But I ain't got a problem, I'll put it down tomorrow/ But today i gotta knock the edge off/ Cause its cats in the street who wanna knock my head off/ Like I sped off with their dope my trunk/ Been a bounty on my head for a couple of months/ So I ain't sleep in a couple of weeks/ Naw, I ain't bathed in a couple of days/ Foggy windshield, ice on the street/ Need to slow down but I'm stuck in my ways/ Always on the verge of merging with the destruction/ Way over the limit, sweaty palms clutching/ The wheel/ Bad breaks, speeding down hill/ Addicted to the danger trying find a thrill/ Took the red pill, now I am feeling blue/ Ignorance is bliss, stress comes with the truth/ So I got no excuse I know what to do/ But I'm still fiending for a taste of witches brew/ So seductive, got me under her spell/ Chasing her tail might get me under the jail/ See I got a good girl that I don't wanna hurt/ But these freaks got my kryptonite up under their skirts/ Temptation's a bitch/ I got so many scars from scratching that itch/ It's like my mental tires can't get a grip/ So when I go around her curves I end up in a ditch/

Hook
The wifey or the hoes
Fresh fruit or fresh clothes
Soup for the soul or candy for the nose
I’m driving down the road, with my eyes closed
I’m driving down the road, with my eyes closed

Anderson Scott:
I got my foot on the gas on the highway of life/ Range whippin’, lane switching- fly way of life/ Never merge- never yield- peel on the blacktop/ Hustling them crack rocks, trying to dodge Black cops/ System so loud, I can barely hear the gats pop, or the sirens/ Living out my dreams/ Eyes need Visine, can’t see the rear view/ Trying to dodge obstacles impossible to steer through/ Tank on ‘E’, liver on ‘F’/- puffed about an ‘O’- plus a nigga’s on ‘X’/ Exit expressway, I should be going home-/ Instead I’m on the phone finding some woman to bone/ I ask if she’s alone, she lies and says YES/ knowing damn well there’s niggas on her steps, toting Tecs/ I could be at the crib, reading to my kids, instead I’m on a gurney/ about to take my journey/ Ain’t no turning back/ Matter of fact, if I had went to my habitat, I wouldn’t have heard the rat-a-tats/ End of my time, the purpose of my rhyme/ is that it’s kinda hard to see the warning signs when you’re blind..

Hook
The wifey or the hoes
Fresh fruit or fresh clothes
Soup for the soul or candy for the nose
I’m driving down the road, with my eyes closed
I’m driving down the road, with my eyes closed
