    Just because I know it razzes all you old folk to hear that some rappers can actually write some coherent lyrics...:)

    Enjoy:

    Atmosphere - That Night (Sunshine Blues)

    Don't even know if I can write this song
    caught on a beam between right and wrong
    gotta keep forward, keep straight
    for the sake of why we stay awake all night long
    it's not up for interpret
    paranoid of exploiting the verdict
    but in the same breath
    I got thoughts that I wanna express and let surface
    this ain't for props or the pop culture
    it's about a balloon that got punctured
    the sunshine is fun til it burns someone
    and we all got burned that summer
    She was sixteen
    another young angel with clipped wings
    she came to the shows
    but I never met her
    don't even know if she was listening
    that night, we lost a supporter
    that night, somebody lost a daughter
    he raped and killed her at the venue
    I can't comprehend what her friends must've went through
    that night, the sun went dark
    now watch everyone on the tour bus fall apart
    that night, Lord have mercy
    the music died that night in Albuquerque

    oooh, I can feel it touch my soul

    Stop, it can't be true right?
    this type of real doesn't happen to you right?
    Cresent, Murs, Dibs, JayBird,
    I wanna go home now and start a new life
    I wish I could protect the kids
    I guess safety is hit or miss
    with a prior convicted sex offense against a four year old
    why'd we let you live?
    I don't know what I'm trying to write
    but there's a part of me that keeps dying at night
    when I think about her mother
    I become another member that wants you to suffer
    you're locked up for now
    you have no more chances to steal the children's laughs
    and if you ever find God, better pray to her
    and ask that we never cross paths

    Ooooh, I can feel it touch my soul

    This song was in response to something that happened at one of Atmosphere's shows. Here is an article on it, the site requires you to sign up so I'll just quote the whole article.

    I like a lot of their songs. For some reasons Reflections is my favorite.

    "You look like you were built for me
    You talk like you want to steal my drink
    You kiss like you already came
    And that's a lift to pull a line for those with out any game"

    The hook is definitely sing-a-long material...
