2 Live Crew – Revelation Lyrics

One two
We don’t stop
Huh

A revolution of mass confusion, brothers killin’ each other
Robbin, their mother, father, sister and brother
They don’t wanna get a job or go to school
They think it’s cool but they’re playin’ the fool

It’s now 1984, five hundred years later
We’re dominating both sides of the equator
In sports, music and makin’ love
But yet we still have trouble rising above

It’s said that in the later days
People shall be movin’ in different ways
There’ll be many false prophets, devils in disguise
Performin’ illusions before your very eyes

Some have eyes to see and ears to hear
But they cannot utilize them because of fear
You have sell out brothers who will sell their heart
For fame and fortune or to get a head start

But in the long run they will see
That they are nothin’ else but victims of prophecy
Time is running short, the world is in damnation
Refuse to follow the laws of creation

You cannot all be Jesus Christ
But you still can make some sacrifice
If not for anyone for yourself
‘Cause you have nothin’ to prove to anyone else

We don’t longer have a shepherd now, we’re lost sheep
Have to open your eyes, you can’t afford to sleep
And a major factor is jealousy
Which stops us from obtainin’ the unity

Come on
You don’t stop

Times are hard and people are chillin’
You can’t get a job but you know you’re willin’
So you go down to the unemployment line
And the man throws you out on your behind

Then you find some transportation, and you go back home
And find your wife cryin’ on the telephone
The police called to say that your job is ill
She tried to O. D. on a bottle of pills

Now you’re mad as hell and can’t take it no more
So you grab your gun and walk out the door
You find another brother and you take their check
And deep down inside you know you’re riskin’ your neck

How do you know they don’t have a knife?
But you have your gun, so then you take their life
Now your pocket is full but can’t you see
That your soul will burn in hell for eternity?

See, I remember back in Brooklyn, when I was a child
Actin’ wild, ’cause that was the style
But as I grew older, I learned the deal
Because my old lady told me, “Son, be for real”

You have a chance to be an architect or scientist
So why do you choose to be like this?”
You have to get yourself together before it’s too late
It’s up to you to be a bum or someone great

We all have it in us and that is why
They tell us lies to cover our eyes
So we are not able to see the light
And differentiate wrong from right

You see, the road to vanity is filled with flowers
You better be careful of its hypnotic powers
While the road to truth is long and full if distress
But if you make it through, you’re truly the best
