Alchemist, The - Calmly Smoke Lyrics

[The Alchemist:]
I wanna smoke 'til my brain is numb
'Til I can't feel nothing and the pain is done
Take the good with the bad, that's how the game is won
'Cause the sun only comes out when the rain is done
And when I exhale the smoke I let the problems float
When I blow out a cloud I let the drama go
All the bullshit, the issues, all the gossip goes
All the rumors, all the whispers, all the talk just goes
All this money in my pocket and I still feel broke
I let go of all the nonsense and I calmly smoke
There's nothing that can make me angry
So take it up with God, that's the way that he made me
Or take it up with pops, that's the way that he raised me
Or blame it on the game for the way that it paid me
Then blame it on the money for the way that it changed me
And blame it on my lifestyle and say that I'm crazy
And blame it on the [*hitting herb sound*] trying to say that I'm lazy
There's nothing that you can say that's makin' or breakin' me
And when I blow the smoke out it takes all the problems away from me
Let go of all the nonsense and I calmly smoke

I want to smoke so my eyes can bleed
So they don't see my pain, they just think its weed
Use the trees so they don't see my game, they just think I'm green
Inhale deep, my problems shrink away
God forgive my sins, tomorrow's a new day
It's like the smoke is novacaine easin' my brain
From the world going on outside, I stay sane
(Way out) I don't smoke to forget
Before I hit this, hold my head, God bless the dead
And I don't hold regrets
After I hit this, I don't listen, fuck what you said!
You know greed was never part of my weed plan
It's fire, blame the lah for murder he wrote
I let go of all the nonsense and calmly smoke

[Styles P:]
I take long tokes, c'mon folks
Ain't nothin' in the world like strong smoke
We only blowing green shit, at least we ain't on coke
You would know what I mean if you was born broke
Raised in the ghetto where there's nothing but torn folks
What, torn house, torn heart, torn clothes
I just blew four, got another four rolled
Will I die today? Shit, only Lord knows
So I exhale, inhale again, did it for my little man
'Cause he's in jail again, need bail again
Gotta get rid of this shitty feeling
Alchemist, get your nigga higher than a New York City building
(Roll another one, and another one)
Sour diesel haze, kush mixed with the bubble gum, call it troublesome
'Cause the only thing that calm the Ghost
Is a deep beat, zone out and calmly smoke

  14. Daniel Ruvolo

    Life is an early 2000s alchemist beat

  15. Jaw Ji

    I admire how they used the Full Circle sample, usually I don't like sampling when it is basically copying, but here they really did something with it and built around it.

    Aitch Dee

    sampling isn't copying ...... it's recycling !!! using familiar sounds and textures to create something new.

  16. Mike Caceres

    This music is something I wish I could smoke to, however I work for the New York City Transit so I'm fucked. I have to wait till my retirement. Perfect description of that awesome feeling of getting high off weed.

  17. Dunstin Checksin

    "Torn house, torn heart, torn clothes; I just blew 4, got another 4 rolled; Will I die today? Shit, only Lord knows"

    "I GOTTA GET RID OF THIS SHITTY FEELING, ALCHEMIST GET YA NIGGA HIGHER THAN A NEW YORK CITY BUILDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  20. AnytimeNigguh



    Use the tree so they don't see my game, they just think I'm green

  21. Sundeep Nijjar

    Theres one line about my life in this song "It's fire blame Allah for murder he wrote". I use twitter to express what I mean, and if I posted this song on it instead of another one on the Layover EP then I would have ended up burning in hell for the rest of eternity. Thankfully, I'm still here typing this so I did not go down that route. I will copy and paste meanings from another song to show you how complicated my life is from Charles Hamiltons "Losing Control Revisited :
    "This song is about how Charles Hamilton sold his soul and he knows hes going to hell (hence "I'm in the place where convicts go after life"). 'I'm back in the lab to make an elixir that can keep me safe". He's making a shit ton of music so he can help a scripture save his life "Play on words even play the scriptures" . He fucked up though because he should have known that selling your soul locks your fate in the after life. He even goes on to say how he will go to heaven "Go to hell end up in heaven playing harps in my music". How do I know this? I'm a scripture whose life was saved by Enter the Hedgehog "Suicide isnt an option I live with my mind". Islam is the right religion and I advise anyone who want to go to Heaven follow this religion. If anyone wants to know more about my life hit me up."


    Let go of all the nonsense and calmly smoke!
