Manifest/Outro (Album Version)


Manifest/Outro (Album Version) - Fugees




I woke up this morning

I was feeling kind of high

It was me Jesus Christ and Haile Selassie


Selassie said greetings

In the name of the most high

Jah Rhastafari

Christ took a sip of the Amaretto

Passed it down the table said today

I'll be betrayed by one you 12 disciples

Give me a clue who could do this to you

The kid on the block

Who makes less money than you

Crooked cops pulled up

They offered him 20 pieces of silver

All he got to do is deliver the savior

Right on Bergen St from bad luck to good luck

My cup runneth over pass it down guzzle up

The time has arrived the prophecy will manifest

I saw death I got scared butterflies on my chest

Father if possible pass this cup before me

But it's too late I chose my destiny in Gethsemane




You see I loved hard once

But the love wasn't returned

I found out the man I'd die for

He wasn't even concerned

And time it turned

He tried to burn me like a perm

Though my eyes saw the deception

My heart wouldn't let me learn

From um some dumb woman was I

And everytime he'd lie

He would cry and inside I'd die

My heart must have died a thousand deaths

Compared myself to Toni Braxton

Thought I'd never catch my breath

Nothing left he stole the heart beating from my chest

I tried to call the cops

That type of thief you can't arrest

Pain suppressed will lead to cardiac arrest

Diamonds deserve diamonds

But he convinced me I was worth less

When my peoples would protest

I told them mind their business

Cause my s*** was complex

More than just the sex

I was blessed but couldn't feel it like

When I was caressed

I'd spend nights clutching my breasts

Overwhelmed by God's test

I was God's best contemplating death with a Gillette

But no man is ever worth the paradise MANIFEST




Gun-clap Shell cap

Got them crawling on they back

Come through with the Fu

They be who the F**k is that

It's unpredictable

When my tongue performs like Jujitsu

Cut you with my lyrics stab you with my pencil

Lethal injection witness protection

Refugee camp's under investigation

Gunshot bursts in all directions

For the wack MC's we read your revelations

Discharge through your pores

Get raw and kill Boors

I can Capleton when I'm on a Tour

Some manifest with slugs in they chest

God bless all the Cowboys in the Wild Wild West
