[Hook] Scratched-"Knowledge be the key To unlock your brain and set your mindstate free"- Inspectah Deck 'Show & Prove'
[Intro] What? All eyes. Pay attention.
[Deacon] My familiarity makes you scared to see The beauty in front of your eyes You're thinkin' merrily Everything isn't a predictable occurrence If you've experienced everything except a purpose Then you've missed everything that was meant to be caught Life sessions aren't lessons that can be simply taught You gotta feel the matter Build the data You gotta strengthen self or your shield will shatter In the field, we choose to scatter like lice Instead of coming together and keeping it tight It's hard to be alone, deep in the night I try to avoid the dark life and be seeking the light But so many times I fall in between the lines Of what is a devilish sign and what is divine If you base your life on wasted nights with no faith in sight You might as well free base on pipes I've fallen down but I got up friend Fell twice Three times Got up again and again And again, it's nobodies but my own it didn't end You only don't win when you give in The days we live in Send shit that'll break the strongest I put on my body armor and remain the calmest Being peaceful at heart Helps me see through the dark ? walk it's hard for evil people to start Bullshit Was a literally cool kid Whose only form of battlin' is through music If you hold yourself tight you can't lose it Life or death It's up to you who you cruise with Exercise knowledge to increase your wealth If you know yourself you'll be shown your wealth (x3)
Sometimes I ask myself a question Is my lack of inner reflection Some type of indication of what state my life is in? They keep piping in elevator music Sappy and happy as hell with foo foo shit When I reflect back and recollect that I was born into the state of walking slumber Taught numbers, realize I'm dirt poor It hurts more now that I'm older Showered in water much colder than this Holdin' my lips and close thee abyss With the speech and the phoniest kiss Rendered lifeless Talk about an identity crisis My third eye remains sightless When the night hits Can't help but lie awake Contemplate fights with vice grips Depressions and lessons in starvations It's hard to be patient Sittin' perfectly still and listen to your own heart racin' Assume the description of my life and it's reality Is on the warm side of fatality It's not fair the way you challenge me Or the silent ways my talents be Hidden inside these translations Emancipations as I try to dab the slate clean Futile attempts to make my fate clean Hate seems all inclusive It makes me want to fall reclusive And rip the tallest loose-leaf With a makeshift facelift For my mental state Huh check it out
