A Child Is Born
Brand Nubian

(Lord Jamar - interpolation of Grandmaster Flash's The Message)

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because only God knows what you'll go through, uhh

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too


(Sadat X)

He grew up in an instant, the fourth of seven children

The oldest male on the block was half and half

Brown stones to neck bones, crack jonez to tones

Where young girls spread out and drop seeds like they're farmers

They're old as their momma's, the same age as their aunt

and the neighbourhood drunk men

and that lady with the dreaded disease is like hard to please

And the house of ill fate with the metal gate

Keep the thin people cracked out like munchkin monks

The ole man with the fruit stand is on his man

His hand, his ole heart just can't stand

the CPR as they load him in the back of a car

I'm on a world tour to help free the poor

>From the local drug cats to kids in front of the store

Number runners, gangbangers and the big money spenders

Reality check rings as we descend from the king



(Grand Puba)

Now a child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because only God knows what you'll go through

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because only God knows....


(Lord Jamar)

The home's filled with horror in my horoscope

Tomorrow I could be broke, this ain't a joke

I'm twenty dollars away from bein dead ass

I'm bout to spend half on a bag to get my head blast

Last week I lost to justice cypher born

and spawned a riff with my wiz

now she dead with my kids

I live by the subway, niggas push drugs in my hallway

All day everyday tryin to get the pay

And I be tryin ta find a better way

You see, when you're poor then you're forced to adore to raw play

Survival be a forte, lookin forward to-a robble up your food stamps


Projects' like boot camps

wit generals cookin chemical warfare

Ki's to a mayor, I ain't seen ya ass in four years

The law bears down on anybody that's brown

My complexion puts me in the direction of the section 8

Rejection seems to be my fate

As a kid, don't wanna ship my momma, always said I had to wait

And it's been drama up to date

Enough to traumatise people's lives and the eyes they try to fixate


(Sadat X)

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because only God knows what you'll go through

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because...


(Grand Puba)

Born into existance with some resistance

A struggle comin out my ol' earth's womb

It was little past noon, three months before June

I had a feelin I was headed toward the land of doom

I came out and the doctor got ready to smack

I grabbed the 'bilical cord and tried to pull myself back

but it was too late for that cos in fact

I'll slit the sack so I gotta maintain where I'm at

Now I'm here breathin this diff'rent kind of air

Poverty bound, headed for the welfare

Drug-infested, rat-infested, people drownin in sorrow at neighbourhood bars

Roaches bigger than my hot wheel cars

Dope fiends with swollen arms lookin like rotten wood

turn to crack monsters up and down the neighbourhood

Liquor store business soar as the crowd pour

or thru the corridors, echoin off the project walls

That's why the Gods say


(Lord Jamar)

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because only God knows what you'll go through, uhh

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smiling on you but He's frowning too

Because only God knows what you'll go through, uhh
