​Too Dark See

This song is by Guru and appears on the album Version 7.0: The Street Scriptures (2005).

It's yo man Guru, building right now in the lab with the God Solar
Tuning you in like so not tracking you down
Niggaz tried to dome my shine
But now my shit is crazy bucked up

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
We need the streets to peace

Fake friends tried to keep me down, life tried to beat me down
I bounced back nigga and nothing can defeat me now
The game had me twisted, angry and upset
About to take it all risk it, crash and burn like a jet

But I live for this, yes I was made for this
I sacrificed for this and there is nothing I would trade for this
So every ghetto I walk through, every person I talk to
Could feel me, bringing life like I ought to

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
We need the streets to peace

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
The fights, the mic, my life

See I'm a strong man, you try to play me I'm the wrong man
And when I spit, it's like smacking you with long hands
You can't bury me with jealousy
I got soul, watch me move the crowd, check my melody

Misery loves company, that's what they say
So all you lame ass niggaz, stay the fuck away
Mad rooms filled with snakes waiting to suck my energy
They explode at the dust, just another bad memory

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
We need the streets to peace

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
The fights, the mic, my life

I heard it all son, from threats to straight lies
Any problems, I'm rolling with vex to take life's
I ain't want it like that, but I be damn If I don't
Preserve and protect and what's a man if he won't

That's why right now I'm on the next page boy
You don't really want to take it to the next phase boy
My struggle prepared me, that's why you all leary
You thought you was Bruce Almighty like Jim Carrey

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
We need the streets to peace

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
Too dark to see, what I need to be and you know
I can't use it any more
The fights, the mic, my life
