lyrics

I

Cornel West Skit

Yeah, you all know the history, yo, yo, yo

Verse 1:

I seek solace in the truth
spitting knowledge to the youts
pay homage in the booth
I’m tryna walk an honest route
I told the honour I refuse to plead guilty
stick me? strictly on a political charge
cuff me in the physical they got the villains in charge
parliament and wall st thats where the criminals are
us hard working folks are just putting the linen in yards
stuck in this city living within the subliminal arts
can told a cold heart harder gettin clinical
half my time, is spenting grafting coz its critical
the other half is spent draftin them original bars
I’m living minimal, even keepin the syllables hard
I walk a spiritual path
filling l’s always, but it’s cool coz we bill it with love
I’m tryna talk to my brothers tryna walk with my sisters
tryna learn from her, were tryna turn from sin
and turn the burner in
and tryna yearn for them riches that you earn within
alternative coz, when serving others you deserve to grin
I light the mersh to digest all this surface shit
coz thai sticks keep a brother from a nervous skit
we churn kids into stewards from the earth abyss
this ain’t a curse it’s a blessing to reverse the script
this ain’t a curse it’s a blessing to reverse the script

Hook:

So learn the history if you wanna have a future to live in
the present is a gift but trust it isn’t given
we seize the day the moment to the minute
we seize the day the moment to the minute
X 2

Verse 2:

Said it’s aimless the way that we chase for the paper
shameless the way that we crave for the famous
forsaken the way, so we remain chained
insane and enslaved it’s deranged that we play this
game full of snakes, rat races and jakes
while the faceless names remain nameless faces
decay in places where the stainless reigns
see since fourteen I was raised to believe
that climbing the ladder is chasing the dream
I’m working for pennies not making a scene
If we’re milking the cows they’re taking the cream
tell me how can we fight fair?
stuck in a system wrought with disease
nurtures the weeds but can’t water the trees
turns out the seeds have all caught the disease
caught on with the greed flex walk with me please
please, walk with me please
and I’ll show you what we’re taught to believe
taught to achieve nothing less than a doctorate
or end up on the floor, on your knees
slaving to the system, late forties
so, quote this, I quote from the quoteless
notice, I roll with the hopeless
coz hope is born of the fear, all tendencies a the beast
I walk with an angel, fend for the streets
so, when I put pen to the beat
it’s her speaking you’re meant to believe
It’s her speaking you’re meant to believe

Hook:

So learn the history if you wanna have a future to live in
the present is a gift but trust it isn’t given
we seize the day the moment to the minute
we seize the day the moment to the minute
X 2
