**How Many**

This song is by **Zion I** and appears on the album *Mind Over Matter (2000)*.

How many times have you watched the sun rise

How many times have you looked deep into your lovers eyes

How many times have we spit phat rhymes

How many times

How many times

Yo

How many rhymes would it take

Just for you to relate

And understand that we're livin' in a police state

How many a pretty penny I would guess

Non the less

Media he's got us all desensitized under stress

How many tales of whore shore to shore

Before the last days is here that for shore

How many days before we get more mature

And brothers with babies take care of there ladies

How many mics get crushed blown to dust

Before we discover the true power within us

Yo

How many times can we rhyme about the same thing

Before we realize stand up we got to change things

How many times have you seen the sun set

How many times has your ass been in debt

How many times have you bumped our cassette?

How many times

How many times

Yo

How many times do the seasons turn for babylon

Burn this is my own concern to carry on

Traditional listen yo

How many brothers tears have shed

By my people for over four hundred years

How many times have you lied cheated acted conceited

Didn't needed you want it

How many times runnin'

How many scars and cuts

Bruises from the battle from those who got beef

How many ever seen cattle

Killed in cold blood

So you can eat it up0

How much more till somebody says that's enough

How many times have you watched a full moon?

How many times have you cried alone in your room

How many times have you felt the bass boom?

How many times

How many times

Yo

How many more of the hardcore rappers and gun clappers

Gotta die before we realize ??zion i??

How many change in shadows

How much came in tobacco

How many bottles of 40 oz

Death can we tackle

How many at the chapel

How many will be saved with fires rage

Surface of earth is getting blazed

How many cause everyone's got ??an opinion??

This is shit to zion crew expresses um

How many times has a baby been born

How many times has lightening stuck in a storm

How many times has your work been bought

How many times

How many times

Yo how many times

*Scratching*

How many live in the projects

How many have sex

Before they fell in love

How many people forget

Where they came from

I seen some people that lost

How many brothers get accused and hung on the cross

How many children get neglected

How many get raised

In the land of the empty

The home of the slaves

How many times can we rhyme about the same thing

Before we realize stand up we got to change things

How many times has the sky dropped rain

How many times has your heart felt pain

How many times mastered again and again

How many times

How many times

How many times have you seen the sun rise

How many times you looked into your lovers eyes

How many times have we spit phat rhymes

How many times

How many times

How many times have you seen the sun set

How many times has your ass been in debt

How many times have you bumped our cassette?

How many times *fades out*

How many times

How many times have you watched a full moon?

How many times have you cried alone in your room

How many times have you looked deep into your lovers eyes

How many times have we spit phat rhymes

How many times

How many times

Yo

How many rhymes would it take

Just for you to relate
