LUPE FIASCO: WORDS I NEVER SAID - MEANINGFUL LYRICS!

It's a shame about the appalling backpacker beat and nagging Skylar Grey vocal hook on this. That aside though, the lyrics on this are tight and absolutely spot-on! Props to Lupe Fiasco for dropping some meaningful content. For those who know. (The full lyrics are attached for reference.)




LUPE FIASCO: WORDS I NEVER SAID

It’s so loud Inside my head
With words that I should have said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can’t take back the words I never said
I can’t take back the words I never said

I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip?
9/11 building 7, did they really pull it?
Uhh, And a bunch of other cover-ups
Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then wait, here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, thats on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust
You get it then they move you, so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the f-cks”
Dude is dating so and so, blabbering 'bout such and such
And that aint Jersey Shore, homie, that's the news!
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
Thats why I aint vote for him, next one neither
I’m a part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people.

Now you can say it aint our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better, then we probably deserve it
Jihad is not a holy war, where's that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam!
And you are not observant
And you are not a muslim
Israel don’t take my side 'cause look how far you’ve pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the kush went
Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
Complain about the gloom but when’d you pick a broom up?
Just listening to 'Pac aint gone make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon' make it halt
If you don’t become an actor you’ll never be a factor
Pills with a million side effects
Take 'em when the pain's felt
Wash them down with Diet soda
Killin off your brain cells
Crooked banks around the World
Would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss a payment
They can take your home away

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion, tha'ts why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you
Consider this, you're bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through
