Speedbumps Songtext
Hook: Speedbumps... you try to slow me down in a fast world... you try to hold me down with your slow words... it's not your fault - I see planets and you see suburbs.

We started out with the same goals, same love, same lifestyle - six musicians from the same mold, same highs, same lows, same clubs, same shows, watching all our colleagues get hot while we stay cold.
Immune system's down, you caught the bug, stopped the headnod, started to shrug... start to plant root, cable TV, start thinking "I," stop thinking "we" always laughed at the people who fell for the blue collar trap and the college degree but as time goes by you start to wonder who'll be laughing further down the line. It's all about time.

Speedbumps? G, for me it was like "speedspikes..." laid a slick little trap at night... at the height of the ride when everything I thought was all right, pulled some shit that makes a nigga wanna (fight).... threw a speedbump when you was tryin' to speedball, go ahead with ya bad self because it's all good - for the karma, for the honor, for your mama, for the house, for the wife, for the change-the-baby drama. But I still love you, and I'm understanding better, I'll never be clever enough to put some hella cheddar before dreams, my love (after) material things, in search of what "the good life" means. It's a tough recovery but I'll be fine, and for a lack of hope in hard time I pray you stay blind... so do your thing and I'll do mine and in time we'll sit back and all laugh. Ha.
