Fort Minor Right Now Lyrics


Someone right now is leaving their apartment

Looking down at the street, wondering where there car went

Someone in the car sitting at a signal

In front of a restaraunt, staring through the window

at someone right now with their finger in their teeth

Who could use a little floss right across the street

there’s somebody on the curb who really needs a jacket

spent half the rent at a bar getting plastered

Now he gotta walk fourteen blocks

to work at a shop where he’s about to get fired.

Someone right now is looking pretty tired

Staring at a laptop trying to get inspired

Somebody living right across the street

She wrote the best things she’s written all week

but her best friends coughing up blood in the sink

Can’t even think what happened, feeling so confused

And he knows it looks bad but there’s nothing he can do

I wonder what it’s like to be right there in his shoes

[Chorus]

But no I’m just taking it in

Out the window of a hotel bedroom again

Tommorrow I’ll be gone I don’t know when I’ll be back

But in this world everything can change just like that,

Like that

Yo somebody right now is dropping his vote inside a box

And trying not to get shot in his throat

For the act of freedom right now somebody is stuck in Iraq

Hoping that he gets shipped back breathing

in a war that he’s not really sure of the reasons

So we show our support when the press mislead them

Though we more then remain proud and salute the troops

get some I know you boys got some work to do

Meanwhile right now someones 25 to life

And is standing on the corner with their thumb up hitchiking

Stretching off a lotto ticket hoping for a real winner

Sneaking through the border just to work and to eat a real dinner

Right now someone wishes they were you and I

instead of second guessing freedom thoughts of quiet suicide

But right now I’m staring at the window at a frame

with holes in his arm and holes in his jeans

he pulled out his cigarette sparked the light

And walked right around the corner just outta my sight

But yo I’m just taking it in

From the second story hotel window again,

The TV’s on, and my bags are packed,

But in this world everything can change just like that,

Like that

[Repeat]

Ya right now somebody sitting in the darkness

Trying to figure out how to put some heat in their apartment

But they got a little mattress and a little carpet

And they appreciate it ’cause some people on a park bench

You see them when you rushing to get to the office

wife robbed blind when she coming from the market

Right now somebody coming out from the pocket

Trying to dump that rock they run around the block with at

The same time the cops is raising the glock with aim

To fill your legs and back with some hot shit

Right now somebody struggling to stop this man

Who’s kick and punching and cussing at the doctors

Down the hall the child taking his first breath

The doctors ain’t even passed him to the nurse yet yo

I wonder if he understands what it’s worth yet

Like the time spent while we here on the earth yet

The answer to the question that we all seek

can be found depend on how free y’all think

Right now it’s somebody who ain’t eat all week

That would kill for the shit that you throw away in the street

I guess one man’s trash is the next man’s treasure

One mans pain is the next mans pleasure

one say infinity the next say forever

right now everybody got to get it together man

I’m just taking it in another strange hotel lobby again

Put my luggage on my back I don’t know where I’m at

I’m in world where we all change just like that,

Like that, like that, just like that, like that, just like that

Just like that, Just like that

[Repeat]
