    Lyrics

    [Chorus: Res - repeat 2X]
    Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
    Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin new
    Where do we go for inspiration?
    It's like pain is our only inspiration

    [Talib Kweli]
    Yea, I see a place where little boys and girls
    Are shells in the oceans not knowin they a pearl
    No one to hold 'em while they growin
    They livin' moment to moment without a care in the whole world
    Now, if I could help it I tell it just like it is
    And I may say some things that you don't like to hear
    I know this: that people lie, people kneel
    People die, people heal, people steal, and people shed tears
    What's real, blood spills, gun kill, the sun still - rise
    Above me, trust me, it must be, morning - time
    Wake up, the stakes up
    Everybody want the cake up, to break up with the crew
    But when the karma come back for what you do
    It's too late to make up - some excuse

    [Chorus]

    [Talib Kweli]
    I come from people who stronger than time and space
    Wherever there's competition you gonna find the race
    I find a place in my heart for this hip-hop
    And pump blood through my vein my skin get hot
    I take you very serious and make you write more
    If I don't celebrate I got nothing to fight for
    I'm tight raw, excite y'all like nightfall
    I'm tight y'all, I walk the street like y'all
    About action, talk is cheap, right y'all?
    You start yappin' think about the beef you might cause
    The trouble you could get into
    You don't study, you not prepared and cats is testin you
    What you gonna do when you gotta face
    The manifestation of the words that you put in space
    They already there you cant take 'em out
    The studio gangsta inside you tryin' to break out

    [Chorus]

    [Talib Kweli]
    Yea, I see a place where little boys and girls
    Are shells in the oceans not knowin they a pearl
    No one to hold 'em while they growin
    They livin' moment to moment without a care in the whole world
    Now, if I could help it I tell it just like it is
    And I may say some things that you don't like to hear
    I know this: that people lie, people kneel
    People die, people heal, people steal, and people shed tears
    What's real, blood spills, gun kill, the sun still - rise
    Above me, trust me, it must be, morning - time
    Wake up, the stakes up
    Everybody want the cake up, to break up with the crew
    But when the karma come back for what you do
    It's too late to make up - some excuse
