lyrics

BABYLON

DJ Defunkt scratches:

People rose up, Governments froze up x 3

Verse 1:

Wise words of the man who came from a skimpy kid
said live simply, just so others can simply live
in truth we all possess desire for a change
some die without the fire, never letting the lion out the cage
my desired forte is to be rhyming on the stage
less about the ego, no desire to be felt
chose not to ignore those that be crying for our help
delusion of essentialism, riding for the wealth
when the purpose of your being is abiding in the self
how long can we keep lying, time will only tell
but time is a creation of the mind
and separation is but a relation to the stations of the time
in truth we’re interbeing, the essence of love hurts
these lessons we must learn to spurn the new present
no guessing just truth earth will rise from the ashes
like a blessing thats just birthed


Hook:

See if this whole world exists in the mustard seed
look inside, it’s not that you must succeed
but that self-empowerment is the trusted key
to walk through the door of doubt free of lust and greed
X2

Verse 2:

Test your faith at every hurdle that you pass
and keep your focus on the present instead a cursing on your past
coz infinite possibilities are lying at your call
but this maya reinforces your desire for the false
the ego is a trickster, a friend when taught
its elixir is to fix ya on a tempting course
on vengeance and not to mention force
so, when then will we enter peace
the centre piece we’ve longed for for centuries
I relentlessly feel demons tryna enter me
but I’m an angel believe that I’ma ride for for the cause
I reside in the self, I don’t write for applause
I don’t write for the cars,
I don’t resent those who fight wars for stripes and the stars
we’re all lost in this illusion
the levels of mind, body,
these levels designed to keep these rebels in grind
where we revel in disheveling each other
its time to hold truth to the light coz their lies are up
positive feedback means are lives are fucked.. a
few at the top tried to divide us up, I mean they tried their luck
making history herstory we’re rising up
hear the voice of the people no stifling us

Hook:

See if this whole world exists in the mustard seed
look inside, it’s not that you must succeed
but that self-empowerment is the trusted key
to walk through the door of doubt free of lust and greed
X2

Verse 3:

Sometimes I like to contemplate on fanning the flames
ignorance was bliss but now I manage the pain
I speak of peace only til I’m a man in a grave
I make every effort a message that I’m planning to stay
our government still sees us as a savage in chain
so they ravage and take, thinking this is their planet to raid
but I don’t panic I pray for their satanical ways
freedom is a mind state, not a mechanical play
stand in the way of oppression coz I cannot be slave
to the whim of a man, with no thing but a plan
take hold of your mind it begins with a stand
see the media still breeds deceit for the cause
so it starts with your mind take heed of your thoughts
choose not to oppress those who be screamin for me
believe in your reason, bleed for the poor
read through the seasons, these are the cures
expand your own being to the seas and shores
drop your self image and release the divorce, from reality
this is what it means to be pure
now the pain of another is your reason to roar
we remain for everyone we don’t pray for some
because the language of love is our native tongue
believe the language of love is our native tongue

Hook:

See if this whole world exists in the mustard seed
look inside, it’s not that you must succeed
but that self-empowerment is the trusted key
to walk through the door of doubt free of lust and greed
X2
