    Disappointed

    This is in Honor of Atmosphere's Record Release Party at Midnight, since I can't go after all. I know there's a few fans in here and even if you're not, check out the lyrics!


    ATMOSPHERE - "Shhh"

    Such a pleasure to come home
    Cuz I...I have a very special love for this city

    Well all right, well okay [x3]
    Well all right [x3]

    I wanted to make a song about where I'm from
    You know? Bring up my home town, my territory, my state
    But, I couldn't figure out much to brag about
    Prince lives here, we got 10,000 lakes
    But wait, the women are beautiful, to me they are
    And we're not infested with pretentious movie stars
    And it hit me, Minnesota is dope
    If only simply for not what we have but what we don't
    It's all fair, it ain't out there, it's in there
    It's in the mirror, behind the breast, under the hair
    Follow the dream doesn't mean leave the love
    Roam if you must, but come home when you've seen enough
    I love New York and Cali, but I ain't movin'
    Too overpopulated - saturated with humans
    And I'm not big on rappers, actors, or models
    If I had to dip, I'd probably skip to Chicago
    None of this, is to diss, no one, nowhere
    Like damn, I'm from Minnesota, land of the cold air
    Too many mosquitoes and our fair share of egos
    But like my man Sabe says, that's where my mommy stays

    [Chorus:]
    So if the people laugh and giggle when you tell em where you live
    Say shhh, say shhh
    And if you know this is where you wanna raise your kids
    Say shhh, say shhh
    If you're from the Midwest and it doesn't matter where
    Say shhh, say shhh
    If you can drink tap water and breathe the air
    Say shhh, say shhh

    Got trees and vegetation in the city I stay
    The rent's in the mail and I can always find a parking space
    The women outnumber the men two to one
    Got parks and zoos and things to do with my son
    The nightlife ain't all that, but that's okay
    I don't need to be distracted by the devil every day
    And the jobs ain't really too hard to find
    In fact, you could have mine if you knew how to rhyme
    This is for everyone around the planet
    That wishes they were from somewhere other than where they standin'
    Don't take it for granted, instead, take a look around
    Quit complaining and build something on that ground
    Plant something on that ground, dance and sleep on that ground
    Get on your hands and knees and watch the ants walk around
    That ground Make a family, make magic, make a mess
    Take the stress, feed your motivation and build your nest
    It sucks that you think where I'm from is wack
    But as long as that's enough to keep your ass from coming back
    And with a smile and a hint of sarcasm, he said
    "I beg your pardon but this is my secret garden"

    All right
    (In the land of ice and snow)
    Well okay
    (In the land of ice and snow)
    Well all right
    (In the land of ice and snow)
    Well okay
    (Minneapolis, Minneapolis, Minneapolis, Minneapolis)

    [Repeat Chorus]

    If the playground is clear of stems and syringes
    Say shhh, say shhh
    If there's only one store in your town that sells 12-inches
    Say shhh, say shhh
    If no one in your crew walks around with a gun
    Say shhh, say shhh
    And if you ain't gonna leave cause this is where you're from
    Say shhh, say shhh

    Well alright, well okay [repeated in background]
    St. Cloud, Minnesota
    Mankato, Minnesota
    Duluth, Minnesnowta
    Kansas City
    St Louis, Missouri
    Columbia, Missouri
    Oshkosh, Wisconsin
    Madison
    Milwaukee
    Cincinnati, Ohio
    Columbus, Ohio
    Boulder, Colorado
    Lawrence, Kansas
    Tulsa, Oklahoma
    Sioux Falls, South Dakota
    Ann Arbor, Michigan
    Indianapolis
    Say shhh..
    Minneapolis [repeat to fade]

    You're lucky.

    I live two hours away and with kids, during the week, it's hard to get down to MSP!
