    "The Mind" Lyrics


    [Chorus One 2X: KRS-One]
    First thing we must do is make up our - MIND
    Then we must go and really clear our - MIND
    Erase the doubt and the fear from our - MIND
    Share our - MIND, speak our - MIND
    Stand up brother, stand up sister
    I told why'all before, love is gonna get'cha
    Lovin that money, lovin that liquor
    Lovin that sex without respect you gets no bigger
    I ain't got time to chill, only got time to build
    You find that in those with skills

    This a real MC, of the highest degree
    With no video, my show they dyin to see
    Not whether I'm buyin 'em three
    When you watch television just keep sayin they lyin to me
    Cause they are - how long you gonna stay at the bar?
    I'm not desperate for money, maybe you are, but listen
    [Chorus Two 2X: KRS-One]
    First thing we gon' do is make up our - MIND
    Then we gon' go, and we gon' clear our - MIND
    Erase the doubt and the fear from our - MIND
    Share our - MIND, speak our - MIND
    Don't you think it's time we thought about the future?
    Whether our children they gonna be winners or losers?
    Don't you think it's time to advance the rhyme we spit?
    Whether you know it or not, you deep in politics
    All inside of it, in fact YOU the issue
    Don't let this government diss you!

    They really do not want you to vote
    They really do not want you to hope
    They really want you sniffin they coke
    You look around yo we missin the boat
    I coulda wrote about ANYTHING to get on, but this what I wrote
    And what I'm writin, is guaranteed to enlighten
    Like Dr. Cornel West, Michael Eric Dyson
    This is how we do it today, enough of the crime talk
    KRS got somethin new to say
    Rise up, and put aside childish things
    This is the message we bring; listen
    [Chorus Two]
    Last verse, KRS, blast first
    Ignorance is bad, but temptation that's worse
    They hide they purse, cause of the way we spit the verse
    No one ever told 'em that the style's rehearsed
    And even if they did, it wouldn't be new to they mind

    Cause all day rappers confess to doin these crimes
    So when the cops see you, they're not thinkin about me
    They thinkin about takin you out of society
    Keep it right, don't lie to me
    You think it's too much preachin teachin?
    Huh, well fine, we'll see
    When you're locked up in J.D.C., or even prison
    The truth shall set you free, just listen
    You want health, and really that's about prevention
    You want love, real love, and not depression
    You want awareness, which come from discipline and will
    You want wealth, which come from skills
    When you really ready to talk, let's build
    You ain't gotta be a scholar to know the next 4 years gonna be ill
    I believe you already know the drill, don't lie
    don't steal, seek peace and don't kill
    [Chorus One]
