Track Name: I-mitri - Meditations On Ambition Discomix (2006 Dubplate)
Meditation On Ambition

Impatience!
All wrong doing arises because of mind.

Ambition is like love
yeh I
Ambition is like love,
O Oh

Now days people say that ambition
will get you out of the 'hood
Now days people speak of ambition
and they think that its good!

So, you think you know everything there is about life?
set up in your big house in the country side,
you buy the fine clothes,
you got the top phones
you ride on gold dubs
you watch your movies on a plasma screen,
sitting in your hot tub with a grin

Ambition is like love
impatient both of delays and rivals,
ambition is like love
yea I
Ambition is like love
impatient both of delays and rivals,
ambition is like love
O Oh

So tell me,
Can you control your own mind?
do you run things inside,
do you know what it feels like to pray
can you safely say you practice everyday?

Ambition is like love
impatient both of delays and rivals,
ambition is like love
yeh I
Ambition is like love
impatient both of delays and rivals,
ambition is like love
O Oh

What happens when the weather changes
what happens when it rains
what happens when the hurricane sweeps it all away?
ey?
What happens on that dreadful day?
What are we left with?
What are we left with?
What are we left with?
What are we left with?

So,
Ambition is like love
impatient both of delays and rivals,
ambition is like love
Oh I
yeh
Ambition is like love
impatient both of delays and rivals,
ambition is like love
Impatient

Now days people say that ambition
will get you out of the 'hood
Impatience
Now days people speak of ambition
and they think that its good!
Now days people say that ambition
will get you out of the 'hood
Now days people speak of ambition
and they think that its good!
