Talib Kweli - Hamster Wheel

Hamster Wheel Lyrics

[Intro (Spoken)]
I see ya, Yeah I see ya,
See, I'm lookin right at you, I eye-contact you
You see me, and I'mma be me, Uh
First, I'm sayin Hi, then I'm wavin Bye-bye
We get in, we get in
Girl, you're so fly, you're so fly

[Verse 1]
Yo, these swallows is horny as Charlie Parker
Be cutting em cause I'm studying these birds like ornithology
Follow em when they tweeting, holler instead of speaking
Give it a name, she played the wicked games every weekend.
Broke up with a dude for almost ending her life,
Came over for the closure, ended up spending the night.
Got cozy in this apartment, wine bottles started popping,
Put scratches up on his back, they questioning where he got them.
Forgot it was her, she Freddy, her fingers was like machetes,
The fucking was so steady, she shredded him like confetti,
Confronted him 'bout every single chick, shes like "enough already,"
I need to be with someone else, this stuff is so petty
She was reacting to things he did in the past,
This nigga was no saint, he couldn’t say no to ass,
Her behavior so rash, she gave up all her power,
He put her out on the street, nowhere to live, nowhere to shower.
How she gonna make it through the night?
How she's so accepting of her station in life?

[Hook]
She always carrying a baby with her,
Her spitting image just like looking at her baby pictures.
Her fate is sealed cause she dependent on a man for real,
How she running these streets but always standing still?
She need to get up off the hamster wheel,
She need to get up off the hamster wheel,
How she running the streets but still standing still?
She need to get up off the hamster wheel,
She need to get up off the hamster wheel.

[Verse 2]
Battery in the back, popping up with the coppertop,
Popular with the ass of the Hottentot
Niggas whooping and hollering at Andromeda when she passing the barber shop
Only job that's an option McDonalds or telemarketer.
Hard for her making ends come together, this ain't the Beatles.
She needing some anesthesia like she going under needles.
She doing so much cutting, its a wonder she bleeding,
The money was so seductive, no wonder she ain't leaving.
First time she felt like a woman was when a dude screamed
"Nice ass!" out the car window driving past.
Nobody showed her how to live so all she do is dream
They call her Rocky cause her makeup is like a mask
[Find] scars permanently lodged on her frontal lobe
Behind bars for credit card schemes she pulled a month ago.
First she getting high, now we waving bye-bye.
She's waiting out her station just the same
As she's waiting at the station late at night for a train that never came.

[Hook]
She always carrying a baby with her,
Her spitting image just like looking at her baby pictures.
Her fate is sealed cause she dependent on a man for real,
How she running these streets but always standing still?
She need to get up off the hamster wheel,
She need to get up off the hamster wheel,
How she running the streets but still standing still?
She need to get up off the hamster wheel,
She need to get up off the hamster wheel.
