Текст песни: Now Or Never (The Roots )

[Chorus: Dice Raw]
Everything’s changin’ around me,
And I want to change too,
It’s one thing I know,
It ain’t cool being no fool.
I feel different today,
I don’t know what else to say,
But I’ma get my shit together,
It’s now or never.
[Verse 1: Black Thought]
I’m sick, sick of waitin’ in vain, tired of playin’ the game,
Thinkin’ of makin’ a change, finally breakin’ the chains,
Every phase, every happening craze,
When it’s said and done, my head is right back in a haze.
I’m ready for the next chapter and page to start actin’ my age,
And part ways with Black Thought from back in the days,
I’m stargazin’ from the back of the stage,
Questionin’ if who y’all praise is worthy of praise.
What’s the phrase «bygones is bygones”?
Niggas who used to be the underdogs is icons,
People say the light shines once in a lifetime,
Is this midlife kind a crisis a little bit like mine?
I’m thinkin’ not now, but right now
I need some kinda sign that the future is bright now,
I fuck around, do the right thing like Spike now,
The quick and the dead, which one is my lookalike now?
I’m movin’ ahead.
[Chorus: Dice Raw]
Everything’s changin’ around me,
And I want to change too,
It’s one thing I know,
It ain’t cool being no fool.
I feel different today,
I don’t know what else to say,
But I’ma get my shit together,
It’s now or never.
[Verse 2: Phonte]
Opportunities lost because I blew them
On the sunniest days of my life, I cry through them,
Mom’s out the picture and pops, I barely knew him,
And I would pray to God but I’m tired of lyin’ to Him.
Tired of tryin’ to run from the things inside of us,
Got a lot of fam, and a lot of admirers
Who tell me that I should aspire to be changed,
But when I think of changing, it’s like why even try this shit?
My mind hazy and my thoughts, they get distorted,
I know my good and bad deeds both get recorded,
You do right so your soul can last,
But my role is cast before I even audition for it.
So I don’t really see an end to my vice,
It’s just false reformation, no end of my strife,
Feel the evil overpowerin’, you can go ahead throw the towel in.‘
Cause, nigga, that’s the end of the fight
When you can only see the tunnel at the end of the light,
Lights out, party over, it’s the end of your life,
And I’m out.
[Chorus: Dice Raw]
Everything’s changin’ around me,
And I want to change too,
It’s one thing I know,
It ain’t cool being no fool.
I feel different today,
I don’t know what else to say,
But I’ma get my shit together,
It’s now or never.
[Verse 3: Dice Raw]
When I look into the mirror and see my own image,
It feels like there’s something else far in the distance,
Something I wanna see, but something that’s resistant,
And every day the haunting is growin; more persistent.
I never noticed it before, but now I can’t miss it,
And the constant pounding is drivin’ me ballistic,
I ran from it for years, but it’s still next to me,
And it’s growin’ stronger, takin’ even less of me.
I can’t fight it now, I know it’s just destiny,
And I just wonder what’s gonna happen when it catches me.
Will it leave me face down in the Chesapeake,
Or will it just start bringin’ out the best in me?
But is the best in me really just the worst in me?
And if so, yesterday could be my anniversary
In sinner’s court, sip port and have church with me,
I’m tryin’ to get rid of these ghosts that’s cursin’ me,
I’m feelin’ change is an absolute certainty‘
Cause what’s goin’ on is a state of emergency.
