I'm Innocent Lyrics

What up dog It's Murson

 

It seems like nobody's trying man

There's kids dying in Sudan and nobody cares man

At least I'm trying man

Look don't ever let the fact that you can't be perfect

Stop you from doing your best 'Murs for President'

Unless we try the innocent'll die

You can't close your eyes keep living in a lie

Look we not helpless we not hopeless

Said a prayer for the homie whose locked up and wrote this

He got to get out and change his ways

While I'm looking for a way to explain these days

It's trying time so I'm trying to rhyme

But so many fascinated with this life of crime hah

 

Look I'm dying to be different

Down to die to make a difference

Music for the movement with a message uplifting

Went from set trippin' to trips around the world

Opportunities are oysters you might find a pearl

You can't be scared to take that chance

'Cuz if you rather knock twice then you're late for the dance

You gotta move with urgency assert with certainty

Ask me if I'm set to serve I say certainly

 

Higher than the kite I'm high off life

At the height of my career a high priest on mikes

I'm anti thug and anti drugs

Brought peace to the party and got anti love

But haters so antiquated I anticipated

Accepted it internally at night interpolated

 

He chopped it up and laid it in a session and then he played it

I wrote recorded to it now look what we created

 

A hot mess I'm hot off the press

You yesterday's news dude you just not fresh

You cold coffee you wet cigarettes

 

I'm a shot of Espresso and hot morning sex

Early to rise and the last to fall

The best thing for black youths is the basketball

Word to Kurtis Blow you gotta know the breaks

And if you don't know your history I know your fate

Uh look been here a minute be around a while longer

Every rhyme invented my style got stronger

Grayskull Powers when I spray soul showers

While you battle rap cats just lay low cowards

 

Oh you mad 'cause I'm stylin' on you

Love songs one minute then I'm whilin' on you

That's the pain you gotta love and appreciate

I'm a bad man you silly girls need to get it straight

Hah small guys denying this is my world

Your girlfriend call herself a dark skinned white girl

Got a nice beat man come on

He hear me in the sample before he even through the drum on

Run on sentence I'm the best period

He pull the track out I'll black out I'm not hearing it

Nada nothing the negative zone

And if you can't do better you should let it alone hah

 

I want it more than you I want it I want it right now

I'm wanted in 48 statees for this thou

It's sicker than a syringe that's streamlined with strychnine

Vegan diet healthy heart and soul with a sick mind

Inclined to flip split minds when I spit rhymes

So go ahead kick yours and hope I don't kick mine

A 50 yard line against the wind through the uprights

While you just choke and can't win 'cuz you uptight

 

Hah he came to the game with two emcees

Back when people said you can't make beats on PCs

Internet haters major labels be damned

Soon produced the full blown threat for the man

Now his phone blowin' up he can't hold it in his hand

A few months back them fools didn't understand

 

I was Mary J and Erica Jean Grey etc

But the name's 9th Wonder and he crushing all competitors

 

I cross train toss brain fuel on hot tracks

Burn in intelligent infernos you got that

I speak clear like the sample is in triplicates

Get every crooked cop in Los Angeles to handle this

Insane inspired insider street analyst

Questioning authority who don't know what the answer is

The voice is proof the choice of the youth

Forensic evidence say the boy is the truth
