Song Title: The Truth (feat. Common & Talib Kweli)
[Pharoahe Monch]
Truth had me up against the ropes
And semi-concious without no boxing skills
Fear of it makes hair on my neck grow like minoxodil
Watchin the clock is I'll when, faced wit the truth
Parallels observing, amateur video tapes of
Twenty-one top notch NYPD cops get ill
Fill they minds not to kill still son, never revealed
True feelings, we speakin on the truth right now in itself is healing
See The Creator, created existence and balance
At right angles, unless it was conceived and stated
So whoever shall stray away from right lives wrong
The deliverance of the word false opposite of truth off course
Sure as my slave name sending
Troy Donald Jamerson paves the path, enabling truth
To stay stable and cling to EARTH!
Sorta similar to the way static electricity sting see
Truth brings light, light refracts off the mirror
Visions of yourself and error could never clearer
The truth is that you ugly, not on the outside
But in the inside on the outside you frontin you lovely
The discovery of these things and all are well-hidden
But when you in denial of self it is forbidden, that's the truth
[Female singer]
In due time we will find
[Common] *speaking behind vocals*
See it everywhere, gotta recognize it
Let the truth be told from young souls that become old
