Just Suppose

just suppose you had cocaine up your nose
beers are flowing and all ya peeps flowing
got the pop rocks in my Tony pop chart
let's make a brand new start as you feel the breeze
start spreading its disease going to do what you please
trust me on this one cause I ain't done
all of life isn't necessarily simple and fun
we got cold hearted people living in the middle playing secong fiddle
Rat ti tat tat on the floor screaming for more
your life my be in shambles but ask Billy Ocean for some tonic lotion
Suddenly life has true meaning to me cause there's beauty up above
the things we never take notice of wake up suddenly your in love
we tend to push things under the rug with our temples of fire in burning desire
when it all comes down to the wire were then just a faded memory
best to get things in check bet your very sorry that we met
Trump said he would drain the swamp homeboy do think a lot
while he sits in his ivory tower of power

cooler heads have prevailed some are already jailed
just admit it folks we have all failed yet that's what Jesus is for
took all our sin upon him lest you forget the message yet
let me put it in check cause he died almost 2,000 years ago
on the cross for all the world to see
what was his prayer what was his final plea
father forgive them for they know not what they do
he said the prayer now the rest is up to you
