      Lyrics for K'naan - "On The Other Side"

      I spy with my little eye
      A murderer, a murderer
      So long the ratchet in the streets
      You never heard of her, streets you never heard of her
      These are the people who are trying hard to slip over,tryin' hard to slip over
      We're sailing always sailing in the sea of years go by

      I know I know I know I came a long way
      Oh yeah with from my heart knock all day
      I kill a killed with a spitter 9 mm on my hip with the debt
      Then sign me a dealer
      Had it hard so you been a nigga cry me a river
      'Cause I'm from the piss and life's grind me his liver
      I mean it's spitter then brooder then fruit her
      Then I'm really little
      Got a brother and a sister and I'm in the middle
      Mother tryin' to figure out how to we me a dinner
      Then I had a piece of bread for my little nigga
      'Cause he waiting outside
      Too shy to ask and too young to die
      Too weak to rob and too good to lie
      Two years go by, he a killer
      Pissed up high the pillar then he go to work
      Monkey see monkey do grow the gorilla
      So he turn another wife into a widow
      Which turned another son into a bidder
      Root of all evil it's all lethal
      Injection without interjecting for people
      Fall back but ain't no kush around here
      This is my block call a cock block
      'Cause ain't no pussy round here
      He's a hard head and a pot head
      If he'll keep it up he'll be a chop head
      But he heard his voice in the future instead
      And he said

      If even small it seem so high
      It's just a wall I made it on the other side
      And I won't let you slide
      Love won't break I'll catch you on the other side

      Metsie metsie for all my blessings in the murk seat
      'Cause sometimes it could've gotten messy
      Like if my shot came and left me
      Still acting willin' dumb and thirsty
      Still saying come and test me
      Still selling crack by young ol Wesley
      And low wage cops can still can arrest me
      That's just not sexy
      I know you feel it who would've thought
      I would go four wheelin' in Morocco
      With a fine dime I brought from Stockholm
      Take it from a war child never enlisted
      Life is twisted like
      I'm not the only one Lenin said
      Chapman is here, but Lenin's dead

      If even small it seem so high
      It's just a wall I made it on the other side
      And I won't let you slide
      Love won't break I'll catch you on the other side

      Don't let me go astray
      'Cause I am afraid
      I need your strength
      So I won't be afraid

      I spy with my little eye
      A murderer, a murderer
      So long the ratchet in the streets
      You never heard of her, streets you never heard of her
      These are the people who are trying hard to slip over, tryin' hard to slip over
      We're sailing always sailing in the sea of years go by
      In the sea of years go by
