rock mecca – stone cold lyrics


intro (spoken):

things happen
we all have disappointments, but we can’t let these things stop our lives
we have to go on
you can’t be disturbed by anything because there’s no emotions involved
you can’t feel sorrow, you can’t feel pity, there’s nothing you can feel
the job has to be done
whatever you want, especially when you’re striving to be the best in the world at something there’s always be disappointments and you can’t be emotionally um tied to em, cuz they’ll break your spirit
if you have something in life that you wanna accomplish, greatly, you have to be willing to give up your happiness. i’ve lost all my sensitivity as far as being embarr-ssed, being shy, um you just have to lose that


in the belly of the beast
belly of the beast
in the belly of the beast
will i survive to tell the tale

verse 1:

in the belly of the beast
like jonah in the whale
well, will i survive to tell the tale?
of my travels and travails
unravel and reveal
the parchment to tell
if i fail or will prevail
survived the coldest winters hottest summers in the fields
had to get a thicker skin so now it’s hard to get a feel
the bizarre notion of motion without emotion
antisocial and numb going through the motions
stone cold

(repeat hook)

verse 2:

it’s like a film noir
grim war
battle with a shadow in a dim bar
going up creek without a paddle
tougher than tough
enough rough rides without a saddle
you spotted and shot down
then dropped to rock bottom
in my memoirs
this awkward, odd beautiful struggle
on my job like a single mom tryna juggle
walking on thin ice while situations get thick
play the corners if you wanna
can’t afford another abysmal dismal year
playing the rear
stay all cried out without ever shedding a tear
live on a prayer
wonder when the sun’ll come out
they sayin that time is money
and now mine is runnin out
with a spout i’ll show you how to move in a drout
cuz the plan was to hustle do my time and be out
and meanwhile i’m getting older and colder and bolder

bridge (spoken) :

we the unwilling
led by the unknowing are doing the impossible
for the ungrateful
we have done so much, for so long, with so little
we are now qualified to do anything with
say what???

outro (singing):

on the grind and it isn’t easy
ribs is touchin
and the corner is hot
your dad ain’t’ rich
and your mom’s in the hood struggling
so hush baby
don’t you cry
go on and cry
it really doesn’t matter
don’t you cry
