I like to sit by the window
Counting people pass
Taking notes
Walking down halls fast
With paper and pen in tote
Except on a plane
I like the alleyway
Listening to electronics
Outside on the streets
From Tru Dat’s depiction
I’m an Outkast
And class is in session
Da Art of Storytellin’
At the train station
Learning that life’s about
More than going through the motions
Need a locomotive

When it all adds up
The simple math
When it moves so fast
The simple path
Doing the simple math
Down the simple path

FZA is drawing an illustration
As a mural of Shere – Akrhan
On a pirate ship
Doing the moonwalk off the plank
With each foot tied to a brick
And I’m soaring on a wave over sharks
Their teeth are great and white
I surface like their fins
And wash up, shore I’m alright
I was only snoring on the boardwalk
Counting the followers in my head
Doing the simple math
Floating in clouds in bed
My foot feels like pins
On the simple path

When it all adds up
The simple math
When it moves so fast
The simple path
Doing the simple math
Down the simple path

The bell rings
Look at us, look at us
We’re hanging next to the stairs
Look at me, look at me
I’m hanging from the balcony
It’s common like I used to be
Anonymous in Miami
Diversity at its finest
The percent of ninety – nine
From the cave to the spotlight
And hung with the girl
With her yellow, blue and green checkered shirt
Plaid had her looking prettier than me
She must not have liked that ice cream
And she finished it
Everything’s as it seems
Glad lasts to bad to never had
I should have known
I’d grow more than I ever have

When it all adds up
The simple math
When it moves so fast
The simple path
Doing the simple math
Down the simple path

I should have never hemmed the jeans
I like them rolled up once
When it’s hot just below the knees
And I care, I’ll buy a pair
Of denim LRG’s
I’m doing the simple math
Down the simple path
And I want the style to light a match
Cause the inches add up
Up – hill’s not fast
Through the trees is the shortest path
But in there it’s like
The road to Colombia
Daring me to bridge the gap
Jungle, smuggle, wildcats
And growth
I’m doing the simple math
It’s the simpler path
