Jedi Mind Tricks - Before The Great Collapse Lyrics




[Vinnie Paz]
Mummy, I don't wanna live no more
I don't think I got nothin' else to give no more
It's like I've lost my passion for life
It's like call on my actions of tribe
I don't feel like I used to about the world
I don't feel like I used to about my girl
I just wanna die mummy, ‘cause it's too hard
I just wanna lie calmly in the view dark
Ever since daddy died it's been pain mummy
It's like there's something wrong with my brain mummy
You was always there for me so I love you
I die for you and I place noone above you
Tell Lenny and the kids that you stay strong
And when I meet my maker that I'm gonna pray for
And tell Pete that I think he'll be a great father
Tell Young that I think he'll be a great author
Tell Planet that his wife and kids are gorgeus
And the same go for Andy and for Marcus
Tell Syze that I have faith in ‘em
And never let the industry snakes get ‘em

[Vinnie Paz]
I got a few things more I should say mummy
I never meant to hurt you in any way mummy
I never meant to hurt anyone, it's God's work
‘Cause wakin' up everyday for me is hard work
And tell June, that she was the love of my life
And that I never stopped lovin' here even in spite
All the things that we went through together
Do the highs and loans and bad run ‘em
Let Frank know he always made me smile
Tell him back in the days was crazy wild
Tell Stoupe that I always had his back, ma'
And we was meant to be together on a track, ma'
Tell Cheek I consider him a brother
When I die, the pain will spit into another
That's just how life go along, it's painful!
I'll come back to you in dreams as an angel
So don't blame yourself for what happened
‘cause you was the best mother that I could father
Someone going to the first place I can go
I love you, sincerely Vincenzo!

    (movie quote: The Addiction)
    To face what we are in the end
    We stand before the light
    And our true nature is revealed
    Self-revelation is annihilation of self

    [Vinnie Paz]
    Mommy I dun wanna live no more
    I dun think I got nothing else to give no more
    Its like I lost my passion for life
    Its like all my actions are trite
    I dun feel like I used to about the world
    I dun feel like I used to about my girl
    I just want to die mommy cuz its to hard
    I just want to lie calmly and refute god

    [Vinnie Paz]
    Ever since daddy died its been pain, mommy
    Its like there's something wrong with my brain, mommy
    You was always there for me so i love you
    I'd die for you and I place no one above you
    Tell Lenny and the kids they should stay strong
    And when I meet my maker that I'm gonna pray for them
    And tell P that ill think he'll be a great father
    Tell Young that I think he'll be a great author

    And tell (King) Syze that I have faith in him
    And never let the industry snakes get him

    (Movie Quote: The Addiction)
    The Entire world's a graveyard (the ending of time)
    That's all we are. We're the ones (the ending of time)
    Who let the dying know (the ending of time)
    The hour has come. (the ending of time)

    [Vinnie Paz]
    I got a few things more I should say, mommy
    I never meant to hurt you in any way, mommy
    I never meant to hurt anyone, its gods work
    Cuz waking up everyday for me is hard work
    And tell June that she was the love of my life
    And that I never stopped loving her even in spite
    All the things that we went thru together
    Thru the highs and lows and bad weather

    [Vinnie Paz]
    Let Frank know he always made me smile
    Tell him back in the days was crazy wild
    Tell Stoupe that i always had his back mom
    And we was meant to be together on the track mom

    [Vinnie Paz]
    Tell Chique I consider him a brother
    When I die the pain will spit into another
    That's just how life goes mom, this is painful
    I'll come back to you in dreams as an angel
    So don't blame yourself for what happened
    Cuz you were the best mother that I could fathom
    So I'm going into the first place that I can go
    I love you, sincerely Vinchenzo...

    (Movie Quote: The Addiction)
    The Entire world's a graveyard
    That's all we are. We're the ones who let the dying know
    The hour has come

    [Vinnie Paz](fading out with chorus)
    Mommy just tell everyone I love them
    Know what I'm saying?
    Tell my man, MaGruff keep holding me down
    Know what i mean?
    Tell them to stay strong
    Tell Des Devious to keep doing his thing mommy
    Tell Locke to keep his head up things gonna get better
    Know what I'm saying?
    Everything's going to be good for everybody
    Its just hard
    Its just hard for me
    I know this may seem like its the easy way out
    But its not
    The pain hurt

    Elevate

    you need to punch a wall to feel manly again

    Erikb453

    Right tho??? This song and Razor blade Salvation remind me exactly of some shit my moms and I said in another when I was locked up. This song reminds me of when I was on the streets and all fucked up and started slippin. JMT/Vinnie Paz albums from Violent By Design, Through History of Violence are some of my Fav all time, Big Stoupe is one of the better producers. Figures he on GZA label #BabyGrandeRecords

    Malicious Tactics

    @Erikb453 He ain't on Babygrande, hasn't been for 10 years now

    Erikb453

    Fasho thx Malicious tactics, he was when this album was made tho.

  39. nicholas porcello

    I know it's Christopher walken talking don't no which movie

    Benny Troung

    Gee B

    Benny Troung it's a movie called "The addiction"

    Benny Troung

    @Gee B
    Thanks

  40. iloveicecreamandcake

    Why buy the Vinyl, the beats are already mastered... I would get it as a true fan though.

  41. Faktum Stream1Beatz

    omfg dj stoupe............

  42. Fairy Wolf

    he speaks like Tupac but Vinny speaks the truth more 💪🔥💯

  43. JibbyQ

    Fucking love JMT. This song speaks to me every time.

  44. DulyNoted

    Forever 💜✊

  45. ganjaericco

    I love how Razorblade salvation is next on auto play, it's like a cycle.

  46. Daan De Stigter

    pessimism is the more reasonable option, when you look at life from a distance. suicide ain't a selfish act once you do it for others, right before the big blow. fuck it

    Alnilam Necahua

    hey man, you good? wanna talk?

    PrincipalProductions

    +Daan De Stigter Not really an option for some people, but I agree. Remember, the glass is half full with water and half full with air no matter how you look at it. Stay strong people!

    Alnilam Necahua

    @Bog_dan to_bo what's up?

  47. Mason Squires

    i dont give a fuck what anyone says, vinnie paz is the greatest writer in hip hop. the man is genius. whether hes goin hard on some gangster shit or fucking pullin shit from his heart and layin it down, its always solid.
    the man saves lives with his music you cant put a price on that.

    Jonathan Raudenbush

    Mason Squires this song is incredible not just on a hip hop level

    Lucyfur

    his new shit seems like hes just rhyming for the sake of riddling

    Albert G

    On point, feel like this about many lyricists tbh..

    Light Of God- CHRIST FAMILY

    Mason Squires Blood Addiction by him was Krazy

  48. Ryan B

    life's one rocky bitch

    iLLixer

    Yep... Just gotta stay strong! .....

  49. Mexxi0

    Freeman farm david elon preston

    Mexxi0

  50. Denise D Melgoza

    thinking of you X. R.I.P

  51. Lacey Speich

    this song hitting deep as hell right now

  52. Madknowledge 87

    so don`t blame yourself four what happend ! cause you where the best mommy i can fathom!

  53. ChristianRocks666

    "Cause you was the best mother that i could fathom".. Going through dark times because of physical ilness. with dark thoughts, that line is the last thing that makes you hold on.. Ya know its fucked up when you're that far out.. To this day i cant hear that line without tearing up.. god damn Vinnie, you got some depth man.. Thank you!

  54. nick shapland

    Where is the cover art from? Terrorist attack?

    lalomira2010

    its probably staged. i doubt they would exploit a tragedy

    nick shapland

    @***** from the way he was reacting to it I thought maybe he got caught in a gas fire. I know fire is extremely painful but for example the Buddhist monks when protesting Vietnam barely moved when they self immolated.

    Oliver Taplin

    He didn't like the album so I set him on fire

  55. StakersLovePkers

    waking up everyday for me is hard work

  56. IDimiO

    What  the music is playing in background from 0:27?

  57. Hoss Delgado

    It's like I've lost my passion for life

    Moe Money Malone559

    Hoss Delgado deep af man that line just hits the core of your soul

  58. Twitch Blakey

    Vinnie has honestly changed my life...

  59. Greg Hodapp

    Been there, I like the reply "Razorblade Salvation" even more tho.

  60. Sevan Hotakorzian

    I wasn't a JMT fan until I started listening to the material that BabyGrande put on YouTube. Now I'm a fan that buys JMT material, all they're doing with the soundmark is ensuring that their artists get promoted and marketed to the best potential.

    Josh Betts

    How much did they pay you to write this?

  61. Puffin Moses

    vinnie paz is one of the best hands down!

  62. Snikker Snakker

    Fuck I was not prepared for this feeling.

  63. Jimba

    wont give it a number, but VBD is one of the best albums ever

  64. Tomas Landeros

    Drinking a 40 to this one and letting my tears out. Might go catch some slams as we'll fuck it.

  65. Sam Lipman-Stern

    powerful

  66. Adnan M

    This song got me thru hell

    Adnan M

    I am doing well now. Thank u

  67. Simpz Johansson

    Respect Vinnie P And JMT group !

  68. Mericuhwow

    Saves my life and tears are shed everytime I hear this song

  69. Wesley Lommers

    This brought tears..

  70. Nick Nowling

    You know the music is powerful when it make you cry every time this here is a straight CLASSIC.💯

    Nick Nowling

    @Captain Titforce lol as far as you know....

    I bet smells like teen spirit wouldn't be considered a classic to your grandmother, it's all perspective bro, carry on:)

  77. serbianfreestyle

    they probably put the bitch saying shit in the middle of the song so people will think twice about downloading it and buy the actual song.

    I cant really see anything smart about it haha..

  88. Nick Karachalios

    It seems babygrande goes for money and not free music...What a pity..

  89. Ross Adair

    So much respect for vinnie jmt

  90. MyHipHopTunes

    It is, those guys who originally uploaded it got JMT hundreds of thousands if not millions of views, and most of them probably didn't make a penny off of it. As a thank you they're hit with a copyright notice, too many of those and they shut your channel down.

  91. Chronic Beats

    wow this song is so fuckin insane good !

  92. Samastano

    much respect jmt
