    "Fetus" Lyrics


    I want all my niggas to come journey with me
    My name is Nas, and the year is 1973
    Beginning of me, therefore I could see
    Through my belly button window who I am...

    I existed in a womb, just like an abyss
    Came straight from spirit land, my hands balled in a fist
    Punching on my moms stomach, kicking on her cervix
    Twitching cause I'm nervous
    Thought my intended purpose
    Was to be born to reign, not in scorn or vain

    But to take on a name, my pops chose for me
    Bloodstream full of indo
    Developing eyes looking out my belly button window
    My father's face wears a frown
    And I'm wondering if they even want me around
    Cause I'll go back to spirit town
    So I could rest longer before I come back down
    The chute again, in the near future when
    My moms and pops can agree on this
    Was here before but my moms saw her gynocologist
    He dumped me off, first they want me then turn around and they dont
    You got a 120 days do what you want
    But as for me coming back this be my last time
    Abort me, keep me, give me away, make up ya mind

    I shot my way out my mom dukes

    I shot my way out my mom dukes

    They must wanna keep me, cause 4 months past and I'm still alive
    Guess I got what you call an ill-will to survive
    When I look hard the lights is killing my eyes
    I know when moms is laying down cause I get bored and start to get live
    Move side to side hear loud music and vibe
    All black babies are born with rhythm thats no lie
    Solar energize, mineralize food through my mothers tube
    I'm covered in this thick layer of goo
    Month two was the least most comfortable
    My umbilical cord choking me
    But month 3 was closer, see
    Thats when pops took moms to see the doc at the clinic
    But I was saved cause he changed his mind in the last minute
    Watching 'em yell, heard my moms voice well
    Feared fist fights, so terrified when we fell
    While they broke up furniture and smashed plates on the wall

    I wondered if I am born will I be safe at all
    This place they call the world though my view was so large
    Couldn't wait to get up, grow up and take charge
    Month 5, Month 6 went by, hoping I'm born in July
    But the Lord already figured out a date and time
    Septemeber 14th, 73
    Get ready world, doctors in the front waiting for me
    Arms open cause they know when I drop, alot of shit's gonna stop
    See how the goverment will start re-training cops
    Month 9, I'm a week over due, the labor induced
    Pops told my moms to push and take deep breaths too
    Said stay calm, holding her arm, I'm trying to hold on
    Surgical gloves touching my scalp, my head pops out
    Everything blurry, my first breath screams out
    Tears pouring down my pops face he's so proud
    Wanted to hold me, but I was so bloody
    They washed me off and he said "At least that nigga aint ugly!"
    Placed me in his arms snuggly, laid me on my mother
    Finally, I got to see who held me in her body
    She loved me,and I plan to over through the devil
    Y'all bout to see this world in trouble
