lyrics

STRANGE WEATHER ON THE 7 TRAIN

MC Cyclops:
I had something on my back,
But then I looked down the track,
A young couple had a map,
I realized that I get out this trap,

I could see the conductor from afar,
I could see beyond him, bazaar,
All the faces had their own scar,
I looked closer, I could see their star,

It's like I'm one step ahead of the game,
The one that nobody knows that they're playin',
But deep down I know they want the same,
They just got different ways and names,

I'm callin' what I see,
I'm seein' everything so clearly,
I never felt this free,
I guess something happened to me.

EtherGun:
Strange Weather on the 7 train
Like lightning hit my brain
When something happened
Something happened, yeah.
Strange cities rolling by
Like I never lived my life
And then something happened,
As if someone evil died,
And went away,
Gone --
I'll live my own life,
You say what you're gonna say.

MC Cyclops:
I see I'm not the only one that looks,
There's a bunch of people reading books,
The cops hop on, going after crooks,
A parent got his child by the hooks,

A mariachi band steps right in,
Two guitars, one accordion,
Their voices carry like a violin,
Drowning out their sorrows like they can,

I'm surrounded by royalty, including me,
I guess we just forgot who we used to be,
There's 6 billion people waiting to be free,
It makes sense that I should help it be,

I can do whatever I create,
Like that artist sketchin', life's so great,
There's windows all around me like it's fate,
And now the doors are opening, just wait.

EtherGun:
Strange Weather on the 7 train
Like lightning hit my brain
When something happened
Something happened, yeah.
Strange cities rolling by
Like I never lived my life
And then something happened,
As if someone evil died,
And went away,
Gone --
I'll live my own life,
You say what you're gonna say.
