Gone Going - Black Eyed Peas

Johnny wanna be a big star

Get on stage and play the guitar

Make a little money buy a fancy car

Big old house and an alligator

Just to match with them alligator shoes

He's a rich man so he's no longer singing the blues

He's singing songs about material things

And platinum rings and watches that go bling

But diamonds don't bling in the dark

He a star now but he ain't singing from the heart

Sooner or later he's just gonna fall apart

Coz his fans can't relate to his new found art

He ain't doing what he did from the start


And that's

He decided to live his life shallow

Passion is love for material

And its gone gone going

Gone everything gone give a damn

Gone be the birds when they don't want to sing

Gone people up awkward with their things gone


You see yourself in the mirror

And you feel safe coz it looks familiar

But you afraid to open up your soul

Coz you don't really know don't really know

Who is the person that's deep within

Coz you are content with just being the na ve brown man

And you fail to see that its trivial

Insignificant you addicted to material

I've seen your kind before

Your the type that thinks souls is sold in a store

Packaged up with inscent sticks

With them vegetarian meals

To you that's righteous


You're fiction like books

You need to go out to life and look

Coz what happens when they take your material

You already sold your soul and its


You say that time is money and money is time

So you got mind in your money and your money on your mind

But what about that crime that you did to get paid

And what about that bid you can't take it to your brain

Why you on about those shoes you'll wear today

They'll do no good on the bridges you've walked along the way

All that money that you got gonna be gone

That gear that you rock gonna be gone

The house up on the hill gonna be gone

The gold -- on your grill gonna be gone

The ice on your wrist gonna be gone

That nice little Miss gonna be gone

That whip that you roll gonna be gone

And what's worst is your soul will be gone
