Title : Lost +(Feat Jay-Z)
Album - Prospekt's March EP

Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost!
Doesn't mean I'll stop
Doesn't mean I'm across

Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I don't get what I deserved
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause a long may come
A bigger one

And you'll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Oh and I'm just waiting until the firing stopped
Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

[Jay-Z]
Aha, I gotcha, uh...
With the same sword they knight you, they gon' good night you with
Shit, that's only half if they like you
That ain't even the half what they might do
Don't believe me, ask Michael
C. Martin, see Malcolm
See Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas
See Caesar, see Brutus, see success is like suicide
Suicide, it's a suicide
If you succeed, prepare to be crucified
Media meddles, niggaz sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you you're ghetto
So it's tough being Bobby Brown
To be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now
And the question is, "Is to have had and lost
Better than not having at all?"
Because I'm...

Oh and I, just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Oh and I, just waiting 'til the shine wears off

**lolo**

I think he mean Martin Luther King, because if you look at the other names made reference to , you can see that Marin Luther is very appropriate

The officialy discograpy thing they've started says See Martin.
Probably Martin Luther King, yeah. Plus I don't think Chris would let them stick in a reference to him like that. And he doesn't really fit in with them all.

Its like look at the price you pay for success... The same sword they knight you they gonna kill you with
look at all the greats who are all gone now because of what they believed and stood for but in the end Martin Luthers dream and Malcom's came true ( President of the United Stated Barak Obama) and Pac and Biggies music lives on and they are still considered as the greatest rappers of all time and that itself shows us that nothing is LOST.....

And the question is, "Is to have had and lost
Better than not having at all?"
Because I'm..


If Tupac and Martin and Bigge were alive and knew their outcome I believe that they do it all over again so it is better to have had and LOST better than not having at all.....

but success is like suicide because from the time you do reach the top then everyone wants to see you fail.. fall.... be bought down... so as Jay Z says if you succed prepare to be crucified because its inevitable


Maybe that's why Chris is just waiting till the firing starts cause he knows its gonna happen...... but he's not gonna be LOST after all with or without him his music will live on and on forever

I like the rap a lot now now, in terms of pacing and rhyme, I feel like it adds a lot to the song. But, I really find the 'niggaz/s' reference unsettling in any sort of song, let alone a Coldplay one.

Also, who is the Michael reference to? Surely not Jackson?

lets say it is about Micheal Jackson

cant you see what succes has turned him into and the media has made a mess of the guy.

so for michael sucess was more than suicide and i think that he would also fit into the context of the song.

lets not get into an argument about other things about Michael or what he has done to himself... but rather focus on the points related to the song and yes when you succeed like he has then you gotta perpare to be crucified

I'm not in any way convinced his paedophilia was a result of his success, but anyway if it IS Mr Jackson mentioned in the song I find it totally repugnant.

well unless you were there with him in the room then you have no proof of your allegations and the last child confessed that he was coerced into saying those things...... again i aint even going there on the Michael thing... this discussion is about LOST+
