Time Machine 

1st verse 

Maybe I do fall into the same footsteps as pops 
Turned the hands of the clock back 
To Lakewood Street now, that's where he would be found 
30 years ago 
Let's take a journey, here we go 
To Suitland, Maryland. That's where the Willingham's stay 
That's my fathers last name, 
He pretty much looks the same 
Back in the days he was 16 & doing his thing 
Construction, making money with his hands.. That's my dad 
He kept a lil ride, sumthin nice to drive slow in 
Playing "Mind Blowing", 8track stereo and 
Him and moms went to Suitland High, she was superfly 
Plus his sister's best friend so, they began to get close 
I found a picture from the year before I was born, corner half torn.. Mom & pops hands joined 
Eye to eye, why do I.. Not remember all that 
And I closed my eyes, and thru dreams I go back there.. Yeahh 
Hey, come on.. Ride with me, and take a trip, thru the time machine 
Years away, away from today 
I'm traveling back, to how I became 
And going way back, to back in the days 
Of when we used to speak, but now the times have changed 
Hey come on, ride with me now, thru the time machine.. 
2nd Verse 

I found another picture too 
From the year 1980, I was goin on two. 
It was me, my aunt Toya, alotta joy around christmas 
Opening my gifts & the colors slowly drifting away 
Fading, just like a memory from a while back 
Looking siced in the picture, got some toys and a cowboy hat 
Neppy's house was off of Porter Ave 
I couldn't touch less it was mine, see I was taught to ask 
Or moms would whoop my *ss, respect, gonna need that. Believe that 
She dropped the bottomline, leaving no room for feedback 
And u could see that in them other pictures too 
When I was a little dude 
Me & moms would hit the zoo up 
Before the yU, it was Mikey/ Mike Jr. 
The world is a labyrinth, so don't let it lose ya 
If the sun was outside, you don't need no flash 
Perfect lighting for this flick, that was taken in the past, let's goooo.. 
(Repeat Hook 2x) 
3rd Verse 

The last picture I hold, goes for all of those who never seen their folks when they were close 
Those days are long gone, but I am the result 
Of a bond that wasn't solid, so they drifted apart 
Moms thing was her art, and pops was good with his hands 
Innate traits I had to take from the blend that yall had, daaag.. 
Lookin at these pictures makes me wonder what if.. 
But if anything had changed my destiny might switch too 
My daughter is that proof, time done passed by 
Some people that u see, it could be for the last time 
Flipping, thru a dusty, brown leather photo album 
Showing my daughter pictures from back when I was young 
I'm trading places with my pops in the drivers seat 
Her eyes are wide, their reminding me of me 
So add another branch, to my family tree 
Just roll wit me, lemme take u thru the time machine..
