Trust Lyrics

by Nas

[intro: nas]
it's like a cold story repeated over and over
in the winters of my mind
this shit be real, man
shit's crazy out here
yo yo, yo what up y'all?
that's my niggas over there. word

[verse 1: nas]
if you scared to take chances, you'll never have the answers
i could tell the future of a dude how his stance is
wonder will he shoot then you should study where his hands is
is he gonna cock it and pop it? his waistband big
but he don't have that thing in him, slangin' just ain't in him
body language is off, he's soft
but soft niggas all a sudden start dumpin', frontin'
cause you fell away. my niggas say the eyes is a giveaway
one look could tell me if you really came to kill me
be the quiet nigga lookin', layin' with the milli
who dat over there, creepin'? who homie by the tree?
better safe than sorry, look at p-noid me
few machine guns close, we could squeeze all three
be a cold day in hell 'fore they creep on me
it's a lesson every premonition
lotta niggas killed 'cause they wasn't payin' attention. listen

[hook: nas]
i want a bitch i can trust
some niggas i can trust
accountants lookin' over my figures i can trust
a lawyer that's fightin' for my decisions i can trust
damn my nigga trust, i can never get enough
a ruger i can trust, shooters i can trust
goons that know how to spot out a judas i can trust
and if i can't trust you, the fuck is you here for?
some of you niggas' true colors becoming clear more

[verse 2: nas]
it's been so long, can't remember how we begun this war
this is a ever-lasting thunderstorm, 'cause guns went off
i see ya moms she still speak, she don't know i ain't cool wit her son no more
it's old shit, see forever we holdin' this grudge
takes real men to squash beef, end it with hugs
we buried our dead, been years
why should i worry 'bout him
constantly watchin' my back
plus niggas tellin' my dread(?)
another day i put a family in black
though i be calm and relaxed
though i know somehow it will come back
even if i'm in the right, 'cause still a life is a life
what was it worth to see you covered in dirt?
it's quite redundant, whether you the hunter or the hunted
mother's cry, no statute of limitation on a homicide
just tattoos of my niggas' names. i wonder will it change? let's ride (?)

[hook]

[verse 3: nas]
it's rare i listen to niggas who never been in my position
a caterpillar can't relate to what an eagle envisions
from the mind of a man who went at it with killers
sit down little man, let me school you in hood business
seen a lotta niggas blow, lotta dreams folded
some wasn't humble, ate too much, got bloated
ain't too much left to buy, bought it i'm loaded i guess
lear jets -– i ask myself do i need love or success?
they say the artist that truly suffers he suffers the best
'cause his heart bleed on his sleeve, pain pistols and sex
remember spraypaintin' the word "fresh" and then staring at it
older folks angry, pointin', swearin' at it
buildings i sprayed, nowadays drive the maclaren past it
same old man from years ago told me life is short
so from infant to geriatric, trust ya own judgment. live with it and love it

[hook]

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
