The Ave

This song is by Blue Scholars and appears on the album Blue Scholars (2005).

I be a patient man waiting for the rain to come down
My feet touch the ground but my heads in the clouds
I be Prometheus Brown stealing the fire outta heaven
The setting is several city blocks off the 71 stop
I walk about the district, distracted by
The decadent madness of all the undergrads and addicts,
Club rats, heads, space cadets and pragmatics
One of the few places that they coexist on the planet
Whatever happened to the avenue before the summer of 2002
Lounging with crew on 42nd

My how time flies when we're waiting for the chariot
Eating vegan sandwiches with cannabis subtracting our sobriety
Pondering society itself
He's eyeing me like I ain't gonna bring it to his health
He don't want it, 'cause certainly he knows he's just another
Sucker without his fraternity brothers to back him up

Campus Parkway up to 41st 42nd 43rd 45th and up to 47th
To the edge of the bubble, while delinquents they laugh, saying
Fuck class, get your education on The Ave
Campus Parkway up to 41st 42nd 43rd 45th and up to 47th
To the edge of the bubble, while delinquents they laugh, saying
Cut class, get your education on The Ave

I be a patient man, waiting and checking for the sound
Of potential break records up at Second Time Around
In fact, we made this track from a sample we jacked,
From some vinyl we dug up out of the crates on The Ave
Rats escape the lab infestations in all
There be cracks on the sidewalk made from the fall
A knotty dreadlock strumming on his broken guitar
Singing Babylon Fall outside of the bookstore
I purchased a journal in which the verses I recite, reside
I write vividly to capture the vibe,
I'm like 'Hey kid, walk straight, master your high
If you listen you can hear the eye of the city cry'
The sound is often drowned by hollerin' scholars
Intoxicated so save it for the coffee shop philosophers
The so-called artists, the poets and the prophets
Scenery is changin', and nobody can stop it.

Campus Parkway, up to 41st, 42nd, 43rd, 45th, and up to 47th
To the edge of the bubble, while delinquents they laugh, saying
Fuck class, get your education on The Ave!
Campus Parkway, up to 41st, 42nd, 43rd, 45th, and up to 47th
To the edge of the bubble, while delinquents they laugh, saying
Cut class, get your education on The Ave!
Walking to the 71, to the 72 to downtown...
