[Black Thought]
Lash out for your just desserts
Some of y'all heads up in the clouds
It's black back to birth
Out ya mouth, I'm not concerned
It's y'all turn like Detroit red
The long walk to burn your bare heels
The game camouflage like army suits
Ring the alarm and form the troops
Eye to eye with the enemy you sworn to shoot
************ somethin's wrong with you
The enemy the brothers of a dark complexion
They heavy on weaponry like Charelton Heston
Know what I'm talkin' 'bout?
I ain't rockin' with you, you're logic does not compute (it's my favorite mutiny)
I spit street stories 'til I taste the pavement
Had a foolproof hustle 'til they traced the payments
Tryin' to find psalm number 151
Alright, put down the bottle and come get the guns
They want us gone like a dollar in a crack den
Mind cloudy through the wheeze and phlegm
If we waiting for the time to fight, these is thems
The truth I write is so cold, It'd freeze my pen
Never let they punk *** ever defeat you
All y'all's gold mines they wanna deplete you
And it's been stackin' to that
Before they told Rosa black in the back
And Gil-Scott tradin' rappin for smack
I'd rather see a million of us ecstatic to scrack

This the guy like Truman C[e1]
Activate in the community
It's like a free, it remind me of the be Kder's love for me
Black mind is entwined like the ropes they used to hang us with
Ya got a questionnaire, who you bangin' with?
Throw a step deeper like a poor righteous teacher with holy intellect
And forni fairly at a jigabou at a penitent (???)
Underground, still about McGruff
Talib Kweli revolutionary mc, and that ain't about stuff
