    "The Now" Lyrics

    Mr. Lif

    Daddy's got a new life now
    A new daughter and a new male child
    A new swagger wid some real style
    New car new house brand new spouse
    Little shitty dog named Pouts wid smile on his mouth
    We'll be straight up we're forgotten cause developed a plan
    Once the monkey takes some time to hang with his own fam
    Hap' and gay to let ya know he still cares and such
    Ya won't grow apart too much from bein' outta touch
    But he wasn't there for him on the daily ghetto basis
    In order to drop jewels I stay clear of the racists
    Heavy promises became weightless

    Sincerity became faintless
    He's praying for a Santa A-list
    Time is passin' by yet his scars remain ageless
    He called him on the phone to say pop's
    This'll take a minute of ya time
    But his wishes were divined
    By the disenchanted tone at the end of the line, hang up
    He tried to look strong in front of mom back up
    John stop lookin' forward to the day you gonna see him on
    Dry ya eye to eye and you'll receive an embrace
    From a lost heart that's pumpin' blood up to a guilty face
    He's gonna try to find ways to make up for the last twenty nine days
    Or was it thirty, I think he heard me
    In situations like this ya speech becomes wordy
    He's got a hundred million ways to tell me not to worry
    But this time I wasn't hangin' on his every sentence
    Ears crippled by the pain and negligence so was the tendency
    He spoke I couldn't hear a word I zoned into black I observed

    My only thoughts were missin' out on love that I deserved
    Tryin' to convince myself I'm weak within the mental
    The silence breaks because your father's guidance is essential
    He's lookin' down with a smile sayin' that the future will be great
    I don't see that dad, but what about the now?
    Johnny come and leave ya dad alone now
    Yeh it's just you and momma now
    Stop the cryin' now, just try to smile now
    Try to think of other things now
    Momma's got another date now
    You can get through all the anger and the hate now
    Calm down and wipe ya face now
    I know it seems to be hard
    But I promise you we'll make it through somehow

    Little girl their firstborn their sunshine
    Never been a reader wrong get it right one time
    Here's how it goes, she's off to school an' dancin' on her toes

    At an hour long ballet class then on to the piano
    Two hours of repetition, emulatin' class with music compositions
    Do your homework with precision
    By nine-o-clock she collapses in a heat of dizziness
    But sleep so tomorrow you'll repeat ya business
    She got straight A's a stroke of her stress
    Throughout her maydays but drawn up out the melees
    Her mom and dad tryna blame each other different ways she stop and gaze
    Thinkin' how it drives her crazy when their voices raised
    This the web that ruins most of her days
    From her perfection was expected
    An exec that workin' hard without receivin' any raise
    At night she cries when she lays
    Then she wakes up, washes up smiles and goes along like it's okay
    On to high school, there's more intensity within her cycle
    She's makin' all the guys drool
    Here comes the extra tight rules
    No late, not with college on the plate
    Practice hard, study hard stay in focus keep ya head straight
    Now she's a nervouse wreck, lookin' to collect
    Anything that she can smoke swallow drink or inject
    When she was mentally gone she went to the prom
    Had dates and actually could sit down
    Discuss relationships with her mom
    But tell me how much pressure can a person take
    Before they break and maybe crush this on a large enough escape
    So one night she turned in but stayed up late
    At her desk with a single piece of paper and a papermate
    Here's mom a federal team waked at daybreak
    What she saw made her knees shake the death of dear Kate
    The note said here's the future of your fuckin' perfect child
    Please be proud I'm livin' for the now
    Do your work, clean your room now
    Take the makeup off your face now
    Eat your dinner now, get off the phone now
    Leave the boys alone now
    Saturday night, you stayin' home now
    Go to your room and sit alone now
    Katie with the needle how
    Look baby momma needs you now
    Breathe now, God why did this have to be now
