LYRICS TO 'Artificial Shine'
written by Pimp-T



<2x>

You know those girls & guys.
The ones that strut by
The ones that gleem with pride
Head held juss a lil too high
They prey on the weak & shy
Makin you wish you could deny
There place here on earth
Cause they lack true worth.

<2x>

Well this is a song
About all those who are fake.
It won't take you long,
To determine if you're the one I hate.

Chorus <1x>
Sometimes I feel blind,
To what's truly mine,
Sit back & rewind,
Thinkin bout all the times,
I crimed on my mind,
Guilty of an artificial shine.
I crimed on my mind,
Guilty of an artificial shine.


Your artificial shine,
Be biting at my rhyme.
Can't you see you're oh so fake,
Like you died,
And I'm at your wake.
Oh I've tried,
Tried to relate,
But you've filled me with so much hate,
Cause you're so materialistic,
Arrogant & chauvanistic.
Makes me will your tubes to be tied,
So no offspring, can perpetrate your lie.

The way you treat your wife,
She's not even a part of your life,
Only in public, be you treatin' her right.
Everywhere else, silence like deep in the night,
Or else broken by a need to fight.
Artificial be the only way you shine bright!

Chorus <1x>
Sometimes I feel blind,
To what's truly mine,
Sit back & rewind,
Thinkin bout all the times,
I crimed on my mind,
Guilty of an artificial shine.
I crimed on my mind,
Guilty of an artificial shine.


Your artificial shine
Be heavy on my mind.
The purpose of your flow
Be simply for the dough,
What made you sink oh so low?
Darker than a black crow
Sitting in a garden
Acting as a warden
So all that do flourish
And could possibly nourish
Instead is left to rot
Because it could not be bought
At a price yielding profit.
Your pride,
At your side,
Like in childhood a locket.
But when you got old,
Soon it was sold,
As emotion was lost,
Soon covered with frost.
What purpose has this life,
When you thrive on others fright,
And emotions provide no delight?

You walk with pride,
Transparent through your plastic glide
Burnt like skin on a sticky slide
So I offer you a ride,
Because I pain,
To see you strut in the rain.

Pretend like you never heard,
When we both know that's absurd.
Cause you be frontin,
Like you're mad rich,
Boyfriend huntin,
Cause youze a bad bitch.

Gotta shine those shoes,
Let no one know they're used,
EI spent on booze,
Hot damn maam,
That's one big artificial bruise.
That's one big artificial bruise!

(Solo)

Feelin' oh so proud.
Vocals always the most loud
Portraying your views
Without thought of others attitudes.
Completely blind
To your own kind
Cause you are unique
Arrogance large like an angle oblique

Blind
To your own kind.
Blind
To your own kind
Blind
To your own kind.
Blind
To your own kind.
Blind...


Sightlessly optimistic
And your every characteristic
Makes a person's stomach churn
Knowing that you'll never learn
How to take hold
Of the world as a whole.

And how you are the mold
Of a typical asshole
Who cannot realize
Based on what I theorize
That there will never be a time
When you will truly shine.
