Font:      
Align:    
  • [Hook: Nikki Jean]
  • Haile Selassie
  • High, high as the eyelids of osprey
  • I'm driving
  • Poseidon your trident can't stop me, from diving
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • As I float
  • Brand new shell for my ghost
  • Tattoos all on my coast
  • [Interlude 1: Lupe Fiasco]
  • Throughout history
  • It has been the inaction of those who could have acted
  • The indifference of those who should have known better
  • The silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most
  • This, has made it possible for evil to triumph
  • Selassie
  • [Verse 1: Lupe Fiasco]
  • Man's limitation, transfiguration
  • I can dance done [?] welcome to the demo
  • Modern man comes to the weddin' in the limo
  • Mixin' doves with the rice rain
  • Uncle Ben's off the rails on the night train
  • And that storm took us to the platform, pushas
  • Back to the bachelor's backdoor, unhook us
  • Hope this track take you back to where the fat girl pushed us
  • And that's very old like Blackberry Bold but the juice [?]
  • Sweeter than where the party at, or
  • Releasing these n****s from the rooms, and
  • Leavin' these n****s on the loose, or
  • Keepin' these n****s in the coops, and
  • Leavin' these n****s on the noose, free!
  • Shamu fan got a world to see!
  • [Hook: Nikki Jean]
  • Haile Selassie
  • High, high as the eyelids of osprey
  • I'm driving
  • Poseidon your trident can't stop me, from diving
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • As I float
  • Brand new shell for my ghost
  • Tattoos all on my coast
  • [Interlude 2: Lupe Fiasco]
  • Then until the philosophy which holds one race superior
  • And another inferior
  • Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
  • That until there no longer
  • First class and second class citizens of any nation
  • Until the color of a man's skin
  • Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes
  • Selassie
  • [Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
  • To the limit
  • The limit in the Methadone clinic
  • Ridin' with the pack like a Pelitan
  • Flyin' with the sack in the trap like the pregnant
  • As it breaks in the backs from the cracks that we step upon
  • If I triple my worth will it cripple my mom?
  • If I simple my search will it mental my calm?
  • Will it hurt if I give you my palm?
  • To tell [?] and don't put a nail in it
  • How you gonna see the world if you wailin'
  • And readin' my palms like there's braille in it
  • Is it the trail or the forest?
  • Or the forest with the trail in it?
  • That's a sail with a 12 in it
  • Water coming through from impalin' it
  • Nothin' left of the boat but my?[]
  • Still I fill up the world and I float, like
  • [Hook: Nikki Jean]
  • Haile Selassie
  • High, high as the eyelids of osprey
  • I'm driving
  • Poseidon your trident can't stop me, from diving
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • As I float
  • Brand new shell for my ghost
  • Tattoos all on my coast
  • [Interlude 3: Lupe Fiasco]
  • A qualified man with vision
  • Unmoved by daily selfish interests
  • Led to right decisions by his conscience
  • In general, a man who knows from whence he comes
  • And where he's going
  • Will cooperate with his fellow human beings
  • He will not be satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties
  • But will inspire others by his good example
  • You are being watched by the nation
  • And you should realize
  • That you, will satisfy it if you do good
  • But on the contrary, you do evil, it will lose its hope and confidence in you
  • Selassie
  • [Verse 3: Lupe Fiasco]
  • Hydrant open wide
  • On the side of the colonized
  • Swimmin' in the street, fell asleep on my mama thighs
  • Blockin' out the noise that destroys little boys
  • Live enjoy, ships ahoy, get deployed by the rock-a-byes
  • D-d-d-deep into the sea of my dreams
  • Lyin' fall asleep at the feet of my queen
  • Hawk comin' right to the beat of your wings
  • Song for the Ethiopian King
  • Haile
  • [Hook: Nikki Jean]
  • Haile Selassie
  • High, high as the eyelids of osprey
  • I'm driving
  • Poseidon your trident can't stop me, from diving
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • As I float
  • Brand new shell for my ghost
  • Tattoos all on my coast
  • [Hook: Nikki Jean]
  • Haile Selassie
  • High, high as the eyelids of osprey
  • I'm driving
  • Poseidon your trident can't stop me, from diving
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • Lookin' for my
  • As I float
  • Brand new shell for my ghost
  • Tattoos all on my coast
