    Talib Kweli Beautiful Struggle текст песни

    Beautiful Struggle

    [Sample]
    This is a tear jerker

    [Intro - echoes]
    The revolution is here, the revolution is here people
    I said it once, I’ll say it twice
    You gots to be ready
    The revolution is inside of you
    People, the revolution is here, yeah

    [Hook]
    The revolution’s here
    No one can lead you off your path
    You’ll try to change the world
    So please excuse me while I laugh (yeah)
    No one can change your ways (rock with me for a second)
    No one can lead you off your path (come on)
    You’ll try to change the world
    So please excuse me while I laugh

    [Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
    Yo, I heard it’s said the revolution won’t be televised
    But in the land of milk and honey there’s a date you gotta sell it by
    Otherwise it just expires and spoils
    And these folks jump out the pot when the water too hot
    Cuz the fire boils inside
    You go to church to find you some religion
    And all you hear is connivin’ and gossip and contradiction and
    You try to vote and participate in the government
    And the muh’fuckin’ Democrats is actin’ like Republicans
    You join an organization that know black history
    But ask them how they plan to make money and it’s a mystery
    Lookin’ for the remedy but you can’t see what’s hurtin’ you
    The revolution’s here, the revolution is personal
    They call me the political rapper
    Even after I tell ‘em I don’t fuck with politics
    I don’t even follow it
    I’m on some KRS, Ice Cube, Chris Wallace shit
    Main Source, De La Soul, bumpin’ "2Pacalypse Now"

    [Hook]
    The revolution’s here (yeah)
    No one can lead you off your path (uh uh)
    You’ll try to change the world
    So please excuse me while I laugh (ha ha, ha ha)
    No one can change your ways
    No one can lead you off your path (uh uh)
    You’ll try to change the world (‘scuse me)
    So please excuse me while I laugh

    [Verse 2]
    Yo, I speak at schools a lot cause they say I’m intelligent
    No its cause I’m dope, if I was wack I’d be irrelevant
    I’m like the dope in your tracks until your high is settled in
    You leanin’ to the left, the laughter’s the best medicine
    But the troubles you have today you just can’t laugh away
    Stay optimistic, thinkin’ change is gonna come like Donny Hathaway
    You have to pray, on top of that, act today
    Cuz opportunity shrivel away like Tom Hanks in "Cast Away"
    Everybody pass away, the pastor pray, the family mournin’
    Everybody act accordin’ to the season that they born in
    You fight in the streets, start bleedin’ ’til the blood is pourin’
    In the gutter, mothers cry ’til the Lord be livin’ by the sword and
    All that folks want is safety, they goin’ gun crazy
    The same reason Reagan was playin’ war games in the ’80s
    The same reason I’ve always rocked dog chains on my babies
    The struggle is beautiful, I’m too strong for your slavery

    [Hook]
    The revolution’s here (yeah)
    No one can lead you off your path (uh uh)
    You’ll try to change the world
    So please excuse me while I laugh (ha ha, ha ha)
    No one can change your ways (yeah)
    No one can lead you off your path (uh uh)
    You’ll try to change the world (‘scuse me)
    So please excuse me while I laugh (yeah)
    The revolution’s here
    No one can lead you off your path
    You’ll try to change the world
    So please excuse me while I laugh
    No one can change your ways
    No one can lead you off your path
    You’ll try to change the world
    So please excuse me while I laugh

    [Outro: Talib Kweli]
    It’s a beautiful thing that’s happenin’ right now
    Right now G
    Yo, I’m rockin’ with my man Hi-Tek on the track right now
    We fightin’ the good fight
    The Beautiful Struggle
    Yeah, let’s go

    (So please excuse me while I laugh)
