gone going black eyed peas

Johnny wanna be a big star
Get on stage and play the guitar
Make a little money, buy a fancy car
Big old house and an alligator
Just to match with them alligator shoes
He’s a rich man so he’s no longer singing the blues
He’s singing songs about material things
And platinum rings and watches that go bling
But, diamonds don’t bling in the dark
He a star now, but he ain’t singing it from the heart
Sooner or later he’s just gonna fall apart
Cause his fans can’t relate to his newfound art
He ain’t doing what he did from the start
And that’s putting in some feeling and thought
He decided to live his life shallow
Passion is love for material

And its gone, gone going
Gone, everything gone, give a damn
Gone be the birds when they don’t want to sing
Gone, people, up awkward with their things, gone

You see yourself in the mirror
And you feel safe ’cause it looks familiar
But you afraid to open up your soul
Cause you don’t really know, don’t really know
Who is, the person that’s deep within
Cause you are content with just being the name brand man
And you fail to see that its trivial
Insignificant, you addicted to material
I’ve seen your kind before
You the type that thinks souls is sold in a store
Packaged up with inscence sticks
With them vegetarian meals
To you that’s righteous
You’re fiction like books
You need to go out to life and look
‘Cause what happens when they take your material
You already sold your soul and it’s…


You say that time is money and money is time
So you got mind in your money and your money on your mind
But what about that crime that you did to get paid
And what about that bid, you can’t take it to your brain
What about those shoes you’ll wear today
They’ll do no good on the bridges you’ve burned along the way

All that money that you got gon’ be gone
That gear that you rock gon’ be gone
The house up on the hill gon’ be gone
The gold fronts on your grill gon’ be gone
The ice on your wrist gon’ be gone
That nice little Miss gon’ be gone
That whip that you roll gon’ be gone
And what’s worst is your soul already gone
