​Jimi Was A Rock Star

This song is by Common and appears on the album Electric Circus (2002).

Erykah Badu and Common (deeply):

Everyone hides their face,
Sets behind a mask they wear.
Jimi was a rock star
Searching for that magic place
That
He could touch
In the sky
Just to get his people high.

Oh (jack!)
Oh oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh (jack!) (repeat)

Life is so, colorful
Reds, blues and dreams.
Jimi lives in a purple haze,
In a psychadelic maze.
Playing the streets like and instrument:
Pulling strings wherever he went.
Angel sent
From the sky
Just to get his people high.

Oh (jack!)
Oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh (jack!) (repeat)

Women all around (eh da da daaa da)
Fast cars and sound (eh da da daaa da)
And freedom he was bound (eh da da daaa da)
Couldn't see the ground (eh da da daaa da)

Jimi come out why don't you set me free?!
(Set me free)

So high
Born to fly
Getting high off his own supply
?
Everybody follows the same lord
Using his light to guide the way
?
?...Try things but few die so young
Something among
Jimi was stung

Everyone
Hides their face
Sets behind a mask they wear
(Back ground: Jimi come out why don't you set me free?) Till end
