Tunes

Standard

My friend brought me this album yesterday and I’m absolutely obsessed!
A rapper who says something worth listening to.  Brilliant.
Warning: Some foul language & I am not claiming to agree with 100% of what he says but I find it inspiring.

Words I Never Said 
Lupe Fiasco Feat. Skylar Grey

Chorus:
It’s so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can’t take back the words I never said
I can’t take back the words I never said

Verse 1:
I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip
Nine eleven building seven did they really pull it
Uh, and a bunch of other cover ups
Your child’s future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then wait here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, that’s on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the upper crust
You get it then they move you so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on the TV all you sees a bunch of “what the fucks”
Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
And that ain’t Jersey Shore, homie, that’s the news
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either
I’m part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people
Yeah

Chorus


Verse 2
Now you can say it ain’t our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better than we probably deserve it
Jihad is not a holy war, where’s that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam!
And you are not observant
And you are not a Muslim
Israel don’t take my side cause look how far you’ve pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this is where all the Kush went
Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
Complain about the gloom but when’d you pick a broom up?
Just listening to Pac ain’t gone make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, ain’t gon’ make it halt
If you don’t become an actor you’ll never be a factor
Pills with million side effects
Take ’em when the pains felt
Wash them down with diet soda
Killin off your brain cells
Crooked banks around the world
would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss a payment
They can take your home away

*Chorus*

Verse 3
I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion that’s why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free
My thoughts is finally yelling through

It’s so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can’t take back the words I never said
