    My name is Common, No I.D

    Ferrari testers, Armani dressers
    Exquisite thick *****es that body bless us
    Rest assured, we getting festive in Miami now
    Told my ***** 'Ye I'm about to win the Grammys now
    Getting Johnny Cash old white folks know me now
    Standing close to the mic like I'm Kobe now
    We celebrate the (?), they hate because we got love
    It's the pop life, a lot of faces pop up
    Known to tear the club and the block up
    Going through the airport with more lie than an opera
    Knew crooks who move books like Harry Potter
    Get cleaners to get it cleaner
    A legend like John, Lennon, I'm a dreamer
    Tried to **** the world she only let me finger
    Mind trips to Medina to visit the redeemer
    A hero, I'll drop out like Hiroshima
    Off sangria with two broads at La Esquina
    Still opening Rose for (?)
    I'm a dreamer

    It's for the world world world world world
    Dream on

    We take, uh, we make, uh, paper
    And build skyscrapers
    Walking on water, building my faith up
    *****s with no heart, I'm the pace maker
    Get the beat from No I, feel the pulse of the Chi
    Survival of the fit with hope in they eye
    Taking notes from the sky to fly above understanding
    They notes from the most high, so I gotta land them
    Career ain't random, make anthems, streets chant them
    Rock roles like a phantom
    Mad hoes like they throwing tantrums
    I tell them I need space like Richard Branson
    Dancing, with (?) and stars getting full at bars
    And then pass out like a pamphlet
    Never taking Grants for granted
    It's Common, I'm high above standard
    Fly *****, keep my feet planted
    To rock the planet, I don't stop for panic
    Maybe I'm a hopeless hip-hop romantic
    I'm a dreamer

    It's for the world world world world world
    Dream on

    He introduced me, I stepped to the podium
    Said peace, gave thanks to the holy one
    Put my water up, thought about my daughter for a second
    The youth, the living resurrection
    Reflections of the sun glaring through the window
    Now the audience staring at my mental
    Feeling like the world, the world is at my fingers
    'Bout to speak to an auditorium full of dreamers
    Kinda took me back to when I first had a dream
    To be like the king that sang Billie Jean
    Now it's gold records, and I'm on silver screens
    At the mountaintop, you still gotta dream
    To the dreamers

    If I dream you're here
    And you dream I'm there
    We'll be no where near
    You should just come here
    If I wake you up
    Only difference is
    You can live the dream
    Just believe in it
