[Verse 1: Elzhi]
下面我要开始回忆往事
I’m trying to get to memory lane

但我犹豫我是坐着思想的火车去回忆【这里的火车飞机只是个比喻,火车意思是可以看清回忆路上的一草一木,而飞机意思是鸟瞰,不去深究细节】
But wonder should I take the train of thought

还是坐着飞机跳跃在时间轴
Or hop on a mental plane

那些回忆虽然离我不远,但想开辆车就过去还是不可能的
I don’t stay far, but this a place you can’t get to in your car

原地不动,而思想却启程远游,这感觉实在异乎寻常
Travel, standing still, it’s bizarre; but there you are

一切就好像是昨天,还是初中生的我手里拿着成绩单
Like you never left, back in junior high with your report card

想自己把不及格的成绩改成优秀
Trying to make a B out the letter F

那时我年幼的弟弟只有六岁
Maybe that was me around the time that my brother was six

而妈妈得了癌症,我不得不辍学找到我人生的第一份工作
Before I got my first job and my mother was sick

妈妈需要做化疗,但我的脑海里还是那个长发飘飘的妈妈
It’s like she never needed chemo, her hair looks long, flowing

有时回忆起伤心事心里总是不舒服
Sometimes it feels wrong going

还记得街区的每个角落
But then every corner that you slung

都和死去的兄弟一起游荡过
Hung with all your dead homies slung

但在我的记忆里,他们重新有了呼吸
But now they got breath in their lungs

还没肩负压力的他们看起来还是那么年轻
Looking forever young, before they were stressed

他们还是一身的潮牌,比如Guess的仔裤
In here they only dress in nothin’ less than Guess

从头到脚都是那些熟悉的牌子
Timberland, Tommy Hil, Rockports, and a Pelle

我下意识的摸手机却掏出的是个BP机
I reach down and grab a beeper while I’m searching for my celly

而且在我见到家人的时候,竟然听到了那首Bump and Grind【R.Kelly的这首Bump and Grind是90年代金曲】
Damn did I hear Bump and Grind that was the jam at the reunion with the fam

镜头一晃,回到了我第一次呲姑娘的场景
In front of the cam, I’m trying to kick it with my first chick

我开着我妈的车出来勾搭妞
I used mom’s Infinity

这是我第十二次回忆我的初夜了
This will be the twelfth time I lose my virginity

一切还是那么真实,我离开了聚会,又去了HipHop的集聚地,在那里我看见了Baatin,J.Dilla和Proof
Shit was the truth, I left and I stopped up at the Hip-Hop Shop Seen ‘Tin, Dilla, and Proof

还有一众底特律的圈里人【Baatin,T3和J.Dilla三人组成的Slum Village是底特律的骄傲之一,02年J.Dilla单飞,Elzhi替补J.Dilla加入了Slum Village,Bugz是D12的成员,Bad Vibes和Grym也是底特律的rapper,但名声并不大】
Bugz, Bad Vibes, and Grym, T3 when he was slim

我见证La Peace和艾米纳姆的Battle
Watchin’ La Peace battle Eminem

后来他们递给我一只麦克,让我也加入了其中
Soon they handed me the mic to spit a rhyme and a verse

时钟随着我的记忆在反转
I was shocked to see the clock show the time in reverse

但我还不想离去
But I ain’t wanna leave

我还记得我第一次抽大麻的样子
Without hittin’ my first blunt filled with chronic leaves

我咳嗽不停,几乎不能呼吸了
I choked up and couldn’t breathe

那天我翘课了,因为我整个人感觉都是烟熏火燎的
That’s the day I missed class, smellin’ like twist grass

老师把我哄了出去,意在忠告我别做个坏孩子
Mrs. Nash kicked me out because I’m not a kiss ass

于是我在街区里漫无目的的闲逛
So I visited places where spots got shot on a daily basis

发现稚嫩的面孔们手里却握着枪
Where kids pull triggers with babyfaces

等等,我肯定是在记忆里迷路了,这些不好的不想在回忆了
Wait, I must be on the wrong side of the lane trail

他们抢了银行,最终进了监狱
Where they rob memory banks and end up in the brain cell

这也是我最不愿意看到的
Where all my misery and pain dwell

我不能再回忆下去了,我得清醒一下
I’m said to leave out my state of mind before the train bail

是时候离开回忆了
So now it’s time to go

和已经离开人世的J.Dilla,Baatin还有我的妈妈在我的记忆中告别
I threw the deuces up to Dilla, dapped up ‘Tin and then I hug my mama slow

每个人都有段难忘的回忆
Yo It’s the place you wanna be, right

下次我还是坐着思绪的飞机来个快速回忆吧
Next time I think I’ll take the mental plane

思想的火车总让我想起伤心的细节
Instead of the train of thought

所以坐着“飞机”回忆
Hopefully touch down

我可以放下那些感情因素,不碰触那些伤心的画面
In a state in my mind, but I’ll leave the mental baggage in the crib

回到那个地方
Get back to that place

那个记忆的地方
In Memory Lane
