Verse 1
All twinklin' lee
Can't see the right roads when the streets are paved
The old slave men might grind slow
But it grinds fine, yeah
Verse 2
African herbsman, why linger on?
Just concentrate, 'cause heaven lives on
Retired slave men will look with a scorn
With a transplanted heart (yes, how quick they had to part)
(How quick they had to part)
Verse 3
The remembrance of today
Is the sad feelin' of tomorrow
(How quick) oh (part), oh yeah

I'm takin' illusion on the edge of my mind
I'm takin' losers down through my life

Dideh part, yes, they part
In remembrance of today
