After I'm Gone
Living Legends Lyrics


Yeah... ehem... we finally grown up now
Looking back from the halfway point
Looking forward too
Still doin' these songs you know... dedications
Goin' out to our children, all our nieces and nephews
Family members and our loved ones
Pressin' it on the plastic see how long it lasted
Forever and a day... look

You ever think about the sunrise and sunsets?
Just another day of planets spinnin' on its axis
Gravitational pulls the moon and the stars
The tides are afected and lives are connected
How bold we are? As bold as love
But only strong as our weakest link push to shove
How many times we wasn't trippen off of it just because
The game was on you see that same old song
We havin family reunions now that someone's gone
I'm looking at what I'm doing like is something wrong
Can I better myself for strength and health?
And do the words that I say get played and someone felt?
Touched, do i think too much?
If I make my momma proud well is that just enough
She won't land me a family with lots of stuff
I know that that's on me so I don't just emcee
I move in artforms music niftily
You could package me up and use it you'll see
And when I'm done put fire to flame
Lift my ashes to the ocean and cry my name

After the love after the pain
After the tears after the change
There'll still be music and growth
There'll still be power and hope
So feel me there'll still be people who know

After my chapter is done so captured by sun rays mastered the one play
Always forget to run one way street's a fork's in the road middle ground I
Ended up with the glass that's half full
Blessed is every footprint that I chose to lay
Yes it's only right to say that I had my way
I could never complain using his name in vein
(has worked??) for me, then you
Takin' advantage of talent just to seek the truth
Besides the fact that I was galant with my silver steed and grip
And failed at my most important first relantionships
And wailed at the moon on shrooms feelin' doom then consumed
By my panoramic view of a ceramic world (escuse??)
I then cracked the glass with the closed fist of hate
And I tried to sit and wait in a meditative state
But this gypsy had a soul of a wanderin' king
With two broken legs and two giant wings

After the struggle after the fear
After the troubles after the dust is clear
There'll still be fire and ice
There'll still be death and life

After the child let his soul release
His body and his mind finally found his sleep
Those who loved him seen him dancin in the dreams they keep
And heaven's never close to the devil's heat
Though the fire burned deep within his essence
The presence remain in his childrens' frame
Stronger than his name man the game is blood flow
The best traits, the passion the gusto
Lost all his bad things mostly the lust for
Money and his problem the open and trust those
People that he loved he watched the dust flow
Ashes to mother earth is where they must go
Join with God envelope within the beautiful
Music ever singing the hymns
His family still feel him cause they singin to him
Good that he's gone is how it's seemin to him
Cause all the troubles in his family now that's seemin to him
The sin in his soul now that's seemin to them
The lineage he left helped his family to win
A chance for the happiness to finally begin

Legacy, photographs, memories
The best station me through my phonograph spin it please
Connecting dots all thoughts of a young man
What do we have here love and strong man
We're all journeymen have been and will be
Dollar dirty nah I was earthy filthy
Show my people that way I hope they feel me
If I die today I got no regrets what is is still me
Minus a shell I'm in the wind in the trees
Legends to be told like mythology
And if all of these seas gon' wanna swallow you up
I'll be right next to God here to follow through with what
I was called for broke the law for saved it all for
Cried my eyes and moved my jaw for
Call for my help and I'm there
If only through my spirit I'm gone but still here

After I'm gone...
