    Lyrics

    "Good morning, Brook-nam"
    Another stop... on the train
    (wake up... wake up... wake up...)
    We come to a stop that everybody got to make...
    Whether you local or express

    [Talib Kweli]
    What's the meanin of ghettofabulous
    Not ridin the back of the bus
    I'm a revolutionary antagonist
    Some playas is mad at us for just doin our music out of love
    Some underground heads is hatin cause we have fun at clubs
    I'm probably on some government list for my rhymin
    You a fool if you don't think they already tapped your line
    Medicine is big business so my remedies is herbal
    It's music is for the people so we Reflection Eternal
    Listen, you hear the difference between science and science fiction
    We blow it out like if you leave on every appliance in the kitchen
    at once; still rolling kind bud in Cuban blunts
    On the corner watchin how kids comin to Brooklyn for they fronts
    Niggas run past what they need chasing after what they want
    Fuckin chumps, you walk down the street and get jumped
    Brooklyn cats like to bubble out of town no lookin back
    When you a ghetto chef you mastered the art of cookin crack
    Some get caught sleepin on the Mother City so when they go
    They come back as tales of niggas we used to know
    Never looked up to see the stars in all they heavenly glory
    Just straight ahead cause the peripheral is buildings with mad stories
    Not floors but dramas is played out, shorties get laid out
    like respect and fade out like TV sets
    into the banks of our memories (let it be) we'll never forget you
    Lyin on your deathbed askin for God to bless you

    [Hook: Talib Kweli]
    Good mourning, good afternoon, good night
    What have you done with your life?
    Everybody time comes to be embraced by the light
    You only scared to die when you ain't livin right, man
    I'm puttin up a hellafied fight
    {*Hi Tek scratch: "Stay awake to the ways of the world"*}

    [Talib Kweli]
    I need you all to be clear on exactly what I'm sayin
    With your attention span I understand that I ain't playin
    You mistaken if you somehow think it's just me you facin
    Starin me down while your enemy is standin adjacent
    My heart is racin but I know just what I stand for
    We chasin death carelessly like +Jessica+, I +Care Moore+
    Who said, "Just because no one can understand how you speak
    don't necessarily mean that what you be sayin is deep"
    In case you die in your sleep you ask the Lord for a blessin
    Sometimes they sneak up so quiet that the silence is deafenin
    You'll never know who the assassin is until it's your time to go
    Your life is flashin, askin for forgiveness but you move too slow
    Now the people that you love bear the pain that you once harbored
    You was livin for yourself so you could never be a martyr
    Life is hard, death is harder; you somebody baby father
    Someone's lover, son of your mother, somebody brother
    Somebody nigga, now your spirit in the air like a whisper
    Hearin your name mentioned when we pourin out some liquor
    The days go by quicker and the nights don't seem to differ
    It's gettin cold, so I shivered and asked my soul to be delivered

    [Hook: Talib Kweli]
    Good mourning, good afternoon, good night
    What have you done with your life?
    Everybody time comes to be embraced by the light
    You only scared to die when you ain't livin right, man
    I'm puttin up a hellafied fight
    {*Hi Tek scratch: "Stay awake to the ways of the world"*}

    [Talib Kweli]
    Yo, the time come for everybody..
    It ain't somethin you can really prepare for

    Yo, yo, Mad Duke, rock rock on and
    Curtis Mayfield, rock rock on and
    Grover Washington, rock rock on and
    My Aunt Hazel, rock rock on and
    Big L, rock rock on and
    Freaky Tah rock rock on and
    Jerome Green, rock rock on and
    Slang Ton, rock rock on and
    We celebrate life.. {*echoes*}
