    "Eternalists" Lyrics

    Talib Kweli

    Now here we go
    Here we go (come on come on)
    Now here we go
    Here we go (come on come on)

    Stay strong this ain't for the faint hearted
    My name's honored cause my style is insane retarded
    Remain hottest from St. Marks to St. Thomas
    Take game farther than the Putt-Putt planes chartered
    The same artist who smoke rain forest will bang hardest

    My brain smartest break a nigga like a lame promise
    All city like train bombers
    Check out the pictures we painted (yeah)
    More colorful than Kelis naked
    Your skills is least debated and your album least awaited
    Even Big Tigger wouldn't let you in the basement
    Face it y'all niggas face down with your legs kicking
    They call your momma Roy Jones cause she race chicken
    Your down for the count like Rah Digga I'm straight spitting
    Make pigeons say, "uh uh no they didn't"
    Yes we did so god bless the kid yo
    I got my own so I never stress his no

    Chorus (repeat 1x)
    In this journey you're the journal I'm the journalist
    Am I eternal or an eternalist?
    As soon as we showed up I sensed nervousness
    As soon as we rolled up y'all burn to this

    Here we go
    Come on
    Yeah yeah (yeahhh)
    Yeah yeah (yeah yeah come on)
    Yeah yeah
    Come on come on

    Yo we send this bullet straight towards your brain
    We taking over like mores in Spain there's more to gain
    Runaways get aboard the train (come on)
    You can't ignore the pain (no)
    When it come down like the pouring rain
    Caught the train of thought and claim to cross the broad terrain
    The cold weather break your spirit like a water main
    I looked in your eyes and I saw the shame
    Y'all don't know that a greatness came before the chain
    Till you can't imagine a future where this all could change

    If one of us ain't free then we all to blame
    So we attack each other fighting project wars and thang
    It's all the same across the board we off again
    You wanna sieve through that shit then you can call my name
    Kweli I chopped it up like raw cocaine
    I drop jams in top ten I'm not for the fame
    You wanna test and I bet you get wrecked like lost planes

    Chorus (repeat 2x)

    And there it is (yeah)
    Yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
    Come on
    Yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
    Yeah yeah (yeah yeah)
    Yo yo yo
    Say whaaat? Say what, say what, say what

    I rock for the purists and I rock for the players
    I rock for the fellas and I rock for the ladies (come on)
    I rock for the elders and I rock for the babies (yeah)
    I rhyme to the sirens that cry in the night (yeah)
    Live on the mic even though I've been dying to write (yeah)
    Since the day of flying a kite and riding my bike (come on)
    Open my eyes and keep the prize within my line of sight (yeah)
    Now cats dropped out of school to get fiends high on the pipe (word)
    Seem like that's to get away of trying to fight
    The system thats based on trying to stop you from shining your light
    Dying in spite of getting rich
    That's why I rhyme like a battle emcee
    Battling the tragedies and fallacies
    That be killing niggas quicker than infant mortality
    They acting like whats going on now is distant reality
    Behaving so casually that they become a casualty
    Plus they don't wanna battle me anyway
    They try to walk away but they stumble like Macy Gray
    Cats hit the tunnel to rumble and say, "Hey DJ!"
    Make me wonder why they call Sunday the lazy day

    Chorus (repeat 2x)

    Check me out

    yeah yeah
    yeah yeah
    yeah yeah (fades)
