    Lyrics

    [ Mos Def ]
    This is for all of you

    This is for all of you

    This is for all of you

    For all of you

    ALL of you

    ALL

    [ VERSE 1: Mos Def ]
    Ever since I was small I played the wall
    The loner type, even as a little tike
    While the other little kids were out at play
    I was home wishing for a rainy day
    I didn't have friends cause I barely even spoke
    My head was mad out on a ( ? ) float
    Surrounded all sides by thieves and crooks
    I found a little peace in stars and books
    My outside contact was limited
    Cause I was different and heads couldn't get with it
    I used to get mistaken for the stove
    But all I really ever wanted was some love
    Remember many ( ? ) many tears
    That I kept inside for so many years
    All the galactic intuition
    I learned the skill of bein self-sufficient
    Heads got live while I took the jay
    I watched the sky and let the daytime fade
    Go through a whole 24 hours of sorrow
    Lay down and do the shit all again tomorrow
    Keepin composure is a way ( ? )
    I'm smilin in your face, all my chest is hurtin
    I want to be nice but that shit ain't workin
    Turn off the light and draw the curtain
    Will I find peace, son, I'm not certain
    In dark, quiet places feelings go
    Beatin you down all hard and slow
    Oh-oh-oh-oh... oh

    [ Ces ]
    I'm tired of these devils
    [ DCQ ]
    Victory is not granted to the swift and mighty, you know what I'm sayin
    [ Ces ]
    That's what the devil wants
    It wants you to be afraid
    [ DCQ ]
    You can get hot, but can you sustain the heat?
    [ Ces ]
    That's how you lose your power
    [ Mos Def ]
    Where is the power available to you?
    [ DCQ ]
    Things that rise too quickly, fall even faster
    [ Ces ]
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    [ DCQ ]
    Things that rise too quickly fall even faster
    [ Ces ]
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    Maintain, maintain, maintain

    [ VERSE 2: Ces ]
    The night brings courage and solutions
    Images and dramatic conclusions
    I play back a hundred thousand scenes
    Cut the proper sneer and practice bein mean
    I've taken too many a loss
    Man, fuck patience, it's time to excercise force
    It's the last thing heads would expect
    If they won't give it to me, I'm takin my respect
    And I'm usin all means at hand
    Cause apparently muthafuckas don't understand
    They don't know the fury behind the meekness
    Mistakin my kindness for weakness
    Well peep this: It's a bright new day
    And we gon' do it this way
    Call me MD with revenge prognosis
    I'm handin out justice in powerful doses
    Comin out the deck with aces and jokers
    Flushing whoever comes closest
    Strictly hands over ears when you try to make amends
    I got my pad and pen, so who the hell needs friends?
    You think I'm on some shit? You're goddamn right
    My area of peace is like mad airtight
    Attempt to trespass my radius, and we gon' have to fight
    My heart is too heavy for you to take me light
    I exit sufferer status (aight?)
    So if you thought otherwise, I'ma let you know
    That when the tables turn, they movin hard and slow

    [ Ces ]
    I'm tired of these devils
    [ DCQ ]
    Victory is not granted to the swift and mighty, you know what I'm sayin
    [ Ces ]
    That's what the devil wants
    It wants you to be afraid
    [ DCQ ]
    You can get hot, but can you sustain the heat?
    [ Ces ]
    That's how you lose your power
    [ Mos Def ]
    Where is a power available to you?
    [ DCQ ]
    Things that rise too quickly, fall even faster
    [ Mos Def ]
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    [ Ces ]
    Maintain
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    [ DCQ ]
    Victory is not granted to the swift and mighty, you know what I'm sayin?
    [ Ces ]
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    When they resist, I persist
    [ DCQ ]
    You can get hot, but can you sustain the heat?
    [ Ces ]
    When they resist, I persist
    [ DCQ ]
    Things that rise too quickly, fall even faster
    [ Ces ]
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    Maintain, maintain, maintain
    This power is available to you
