    I know this is pretty old, but this is one amazing song. Not only does Matthew Santos snap on the chorus, but Lupe comes correct with lyrics... Lupe is a topnotch rapper...he creeps in and out of my top 15 and might make a mark in the eternal list of lyrical monsters...

    Quite possibly my favorite song Lupe ever made...Probably because of how true it is.

    If the Source Rated Songs and Not Juss Albums, This Would Be a 5 Mic Song. No Doubt

    Honestly...i know it's hard for people to understand this when i say it, but...Lupe Fiasco could possibly be top 10 lyricist D.O.A. It's a hard fit inbecause there are so many good lyricists but Lupe for some reason is like hypebeast said it, thought provoking...

    Lupe makes you think...and you have to actually LISTEN to him in order to actually appreciate him..

    Close your mind
    close your eyes
    see with your heart
    how do you forgive the murderer of your father?
    the ink of a scholar is worth a thousand times more than the blood of a martyr

    we came through the storm nooses on our necks
    and a smallpox blanket to keep us warm
    on a 747 on the pentagon lawn
    wake up the alarm clock is connected to a bomb
    anthrax lab on a w. Virginia farm
    shorty ain't learned to walk already heavily armed
    civilians and little children is especially harmed
    camouflaged torahs, bibles and glorious qurans
    the books that take you to heaven and let you meet the Lord there
    have become misinterpreted, reasons for warfare
    we read em with blind eyes i guarantee u there's more there
    the rich must be blind b/c they didn't see the poor there
    need to open up a park, just close 10 schools
    we don't need em
    can u please call the fire department they're down here marching for freedom
    burn down their TV's, turn their TV's on to teach em


    The more money that they make
    the more money that they make
    the better and better they live
    whatever they wanna take
    whatever they wanna take
    whatever whatever it is
    the more that you wanna learn
    the more that you try to learn
    the better and better it gets
    American Terrorist
    (Terror)

    now the poor klu klux man c that we're all brothers not b/c things are the same b/c we lack the same
    color that's green, now that's mean
    cant burn his cross cause he cant afford the gasoline
    now if a Muslim woman strapped with a bomb on a bus
    with the seconds running give you the jitters?
    just imagine a American-based Christian organization planning to poison water supplies to bring the
    second-coming quicker
    !++%% they ain't living properly
    break em off a little democracy
    turn their whole culture to a mockery
    give em coca-cola for their property
    give em gum, give em guns, get em young, give em fun
    if they ain't giving it up, then they ain't getting none and don't give em all naw ,man, just give em some its
    the paper, then these cops must be al-qaeda



    It's like
    don't give the black man food, give red man liquor
    red man fool, black man !++%%
    give yellow man tool, make him railroad builda
    also give him pan, make him pull gold from river give black man crack, glocks to teens, give red man
    craps, slot machines...

    Ah....

    I like Lupe, but when he goes off on this esoteric conspiracy theory stuff he loses me early.

    If nothing needs to be expanded upon, why elaborate? (If this is in conjunction with my use of the word 'esoteric', however, you're on point. Wrongword to use.)

    Sure, the song explains itself. That doesn't make everything in it gospel, à la Ras Kass' Nature of the Threat.

    You're right though, unlike his other songs where he loses himself in metaphors, here there's "not much thought needed to understand what he'ssaying".

    I guess I should clarify... I don't really like Lupe, but I respect his talent.
