NEON LIGHTS Lyrics

by The Specktators

Verse 1
Lights, camera, action, gon tell me when to go
This is our year, boy, if ya didn?t know
I hop in the whip n go, rollin down the win-a-dow
City full of hopefuls, lookin for a winner though
Guess it?s L-Town, cuz to win in it is difficult
But I?m not your typical, I am the reciprocal
Iller than the realest spitter, really every syllable
Everything I say is real, some of it is literal
Most of you are fake, so my circle?s at a minimal
What you gonna do? Imma be the man
Young dude with my green tight. Peter Pan
Taking off and I?ll never land, never land
Effo-effort turned my dream into the effi-effin plan

Hook
From a dream to the real thing, I see my name in them neon lights
Livin life in the fastlane, they say I changed, but I?ll be alright
Put my name in the neon, neon
Get a hold of my crew, tell em we on, we on, hey
Pack your bags we gon be on flights
To the biggest cities, lookout for these neon lights aahh
Ne-on, Ne-on, Ne-on?lights, where they at?

Verse 2
Maaaan, I?ve been ready for this moment
People had their shot sh-shot and they missed on it
I was working my ass off. They dissed on it
But when I make it I bet they want an assist on it
Maaaan, you must be J-Kidding
You say hold up, me say get it
You say do it, me say did it
City in my palm boy, middle of the mitten
Whatchu know about that man? I see through you feline?s like cat scans
That?s why I kept my crew close
Soon as I make this bread, we gon have a new toast, yup

Hook
From a dream to the real thing, I see my name in them neon lights
Livin life in the fastlane, they say I changed, but I?ll be alright
Put my name in the neon, neon
Get a hold of my crew, tell em we on, we on, hey
Pack your bags we gon be on flights
To the biggest cities, lookout for these neon lights aahh
Ne-on, Ne-on, Ne-on?lights, where they at?

Verse 3
I wanted this since I could listen to a rap song
Chillin with my headphones still in, backpack on
Now I?m on stage with a frickin snapback on
People in their whips with a frickin Speck track on, dang
Everybody know what my slang is, sayin my name, know who my gang is
I just wanna be famous
Money talks, and pretty soon it?ll be speaking my language
You could talk shit, but I speaka no lame-ish
Your girlfriend ain?t leavin with who she came with
Haters never gonna get to me
You could stay pissed at me, cuz you ain?t shit to me. What now?

Hook
From a dream to the real thing, I see my name in them neon lights
Livin life in the fastlane, they say I changed, but I?ll be alright
Put my name in the neon, neon
Get a hold of my crew, tell em we on, we on, hey
Pack your bags we gon be on flights
To the biggest cities, lookout for these neon lights aahh

Bridge
Big city dreamin. All the lights beamin
I like the feelin. What a nice evening
Big city dreamin. All the lights beamin
I like the feelin. I like the feelin

Verse 4
I like the feeling, I?ll forever let it last
Imma treat it like a dummy, imma never let it pass
You could take it to the bank, you could throw it off the glass
Imma take it to the top and imma do it awful fast
That?s?that?s?that?s where imma try and go
Me, money, and music, that?s a love triangle
Haha haha I got a lot to buy
You can?t block the fresh, you can?t swat the fly
Ain?t no ?I? in stop, ain?t no stopping I
Purchase me some diamonds, call that rock-a-bye
Bye-bye to the broke days and the no ways, hello to the okays
Bye to the middle of winter wishin for snow days
Hi to the, hi to the, hi to the show days
Bye to the slow days, hi to my fast life ticket
And hi to the chicks with a ass like Nicki, ha

Hook
From a dream to the real thing, I see my name in them neon lights
Livin life in the fastlane, they say I changed, but I?ll be alright
Put my name in the neon, neon
Get a hold of my crew, tell em we on, we on, hey
Pack your bags we gon be on flights
To the biggest cities, lookout for these neon lights aahh

(Ne-on, Ne-on, Ne-on)

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

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
Paul Hardcastle
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
