Talib Kweli – Heads Up Eyes Open (feat. Rick Ross)

[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
His word is his bond, but his action’s always to prove

And loves his enemies enough to deliver justice
In what you don’t see, I understand
He’ll bleed for his beliefs practicing civil disobedience
Forgive me lord for them bitches the night before
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
Thinking his lifestyle is blocking his blessing
Yea, that’s where we at with it
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Than what we could even imagine
[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
Once the one on the bench with the snotty nose
The trust you put in me to be a beast with this rhyming
It’s hard to feel better
A faithful man never need evidence to believe
But the picture is so much bigger

Belief is a funny thing, in case you’re wondering
A wise man know what he know and what he doesn’t
We taking stock right now
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
But the picture is so much bigger
Take it to the top
They misrepresent and misquote and then they misleading you
Communion Sunday, my twenties, went in the [?]

No excuses, if I start it then I’ll see it through
At times he introspective, but his bible he’ll never question
[?] and these Bentleys I can’t afford
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Lost in desire, I walked through the devil’s fire
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
In what you don’t see, I understand
If they want the ring, they coming for the throne like they the sons of kings
All the nights that we were lacking those refreshments
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Than what we could even imagine
Gotta be the example for children to do their chores

Put your faith into action
But the picture is so much bigger
Than what we could even imagine
My last victory was great moments of Black history
It’s the facts versus the facts simile, your raps killing me
A violent man will stock up on weapons and go to war for his
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Just cause you are a character
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Get post-traumatic stress disorder, become an officer

It’s hard to feel better
Let’s go You ready?
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
Rain down, thunder storm with the flows
In what you don’t see, I understand
[Outro: Talib Kweli & Yummy Bingham]
[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]

And some loud, I got super packs like I backed Hillary
An honest man knows only lies are scared of the truth
I inspire the resurrection of kings like Hezekiah

Put your faith into action
Don’t mean you have character
Let’s go
God is what I see in you, so you might as well believe in you
Roll up a bag of that weed, therefore I spark
Heads up and eyes open
A righteous man walks the earth without judgment
[Verse 3: Talib Kweli]
A pious man relies on religion for his direction
Let’s go
Never [?] would hold me when I was cold
Devil knocking on my door, he like a narc
It’s hard to feel better
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
Articulate with the bounce, now I’m back like I’m Derrick Rose
Recite the Quran, I’m in the dark
A man of peace uses his words in different mediums
But still he gotta work for the blessings that he receives
Top tier niggas blossomed in the basement
A dying man will make a confession, try to get into heaven
Heads up and eyes open
Rolling Stones [?] was the boss

Put your faith into action
Blowing weed smoke on the cover of The Source
[Intro: Talib Kweli]
Fallen soldier on his own so we march
Heads up and eyes open
Yea I tell you what I believe, but I back it up with what I know
The media deceiving you Think what you see on TV’s true?
Take it to the top
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
If he’s not really sure what he’s saying, he don’t discuss it
I celebrated with a bottle I just brought back from Italy
That’s where the rubber meets the road and where your faith meets science
These average rappers is acting up for the dough
