"Words I Never Said"
Lupe Fiasco ft. Skylar Grey




LYRICS

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 bullsh*t
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**ks”
Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
And that aint Jersey Shore, homie thats 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,
but Obama didn’t say sh*t!
That's why I aint vote for him,
next one either!
Cuz I’m a part of the problem,
my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people.

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

Now you can say it aint our fault
if we never heard it.
But if we know better, than 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 did you pick a broom up?
Just listening to Pac aint gone make it stop.
A rebel in your thoughts, aint gonna make it halt.
If you don’t become an actor
You’ll never be a factor.
Pills with million side effects-
Take them when the pains 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 payment
They can take your home away!

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, never said
I can’t take back the words I never said

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence.
Fear is such a weak emotion
that's why I despise it!
We're 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 your bailing out,
so take a breath,
inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free,
my thoughts is finally yelling through!

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'm seriously FLOORED that Lupe released this!
I had no idea he felt this way!
And the fact that MTV premiered it- to a staggering audience- is a DEFINITE win for the people

Another attempt at cashing in on the truth.Did the rapper wake up or did someone predetermine that this would sell?

I am never a fan of these music threads, but I'm glad you posted this one!


The "good" rap, and the "good" country music are more similar than people realize. Both of them have folk, and political, and societal roots. Both of them tell the real story for the people out living in the mix. They are the best indicator of how the population is truly feeling.

Music has never been wrong. There are trends in music that are always 100% prophetic for the direction the country will turn in the following decade. There are sociology majors and music majors that do dissertations on this phenomenon. The music never lies. You just have to know who and what to listen to.

IF you're only familiar with the rap that gets played on the radio, you're really missing out, especially if this speaks to you. There are some extremely talented and brave lyricists in underground hiphop.

Star and Flag.

The title of your post was a little sensationalized though, eh? lol

Anyways, not too bad for a modern rap (I like 90's G-rap and Deathmetal...go figure)

The lyrics are awesome and on the money.

Speakin' 'Da Troof!

Very cool song but lets see if it actually does anything besides make Lupe money get him a little attention. As far as premiering on MTV, I'm pretty sue that's the last place people look for/watch videos anymore.

Just another example of people jumping on the " open your eyes, down with the system " bandwagon.

He is just trying to make a buck, for a more " real and meaningfull message listen to DEAD PREZ

Propaganda Dead Prez
youtu.be...

LYRICS:
Intro: (news snippets)
"let me now turn, to our program for the future..."
"the economy right now, is extremely supportive of the president and his Policies"
"FBI scientists have found chemical traces, consistent with a bomb or a Missile, on a piece of wreckage..."
"police using clubs and tear gas against demonstrators..."
"they called me a mother#ing so-and-so...and a white
Fascist...like they said, you're getting some of your own medicine..."

Singing:
Telling lies, to our vision
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our babies
Only truth, can take us away...

Verse 1:
You can't fool all the people all of the time
But if you fool the right ones, then the rest will fall behind
Tell me who's got control of your mind? your world view?
Is it the news or the movie you're taking your girl to? (uh)
Know what I'm sayin cause Uncle Sam got a plan
If you examine what they tellin us then you will understand
What they plantin in the seeds of the next generation
Feeding our children miseducation
No one knows if there's UFOs or any life on mars
Or what they do when they up in the stars
Because I don't believe a word of what the president said
He filling our head with lies got us hypnotized
When he be speaking in cold words about crime and poverty
Drugs, welfare, prisons, guns and robbery
It really means us, there's no excuse for the slander
But what's good for the goose, is still good for the gander
See...

Chorus:
I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed Huey cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is propaganda

Singing:
Telling lies, to our vision
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our babies
Only truth, can take us away...

Verse 2:
I don't want no computer chip in my arm
I don't wanna die by a nuclear bomb
I say we all rush the pentagon, pull out guns
And grab the intercom, my first words will be I believe
Man made god, outta ignorance and fear
If god made man, then why the hell would he put us here?
I thought he's supposed to be the all loving
The same God who let Hitler put the jews in the oven
We don't fall for the regular #, they try to feed us
All this half-ass leadership, flippin position
They turn politician and shut the hell up and follow tradition
For your tv screen, is telling lies to your vision
Every channel got some brainwashed cop # to watch
Running up in niggas cribs claiming that they heard shots
It's a plot, but busta can you tell me who's greedier?
Big corporations, the pigs or the media?
Sign of the times, terrorism on the rise
Commercial airplanes, falling out the sky like flies
Make me wonder what secrets went down with bob brown
Who burnin churches to the ground with no evidence found
It's not coincidence, it's been too many studied incidents
It coulda been the Klan who put that bomb at the Olympics
But it probably was the FBI, deep at the call
Cuz if they make us all panic then they can start martial law

Chorus:
I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed Huey cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is propaganda

I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed Huey cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is mutha#in propaganda

Singing:
Police is telling lies fooling millions
What are they teaching our kids in these school buildings?
Telling lies, into bribery into killing
Controlling our lives, this ain't living
No this ain't living

Chant:
FBI, CIA
ATF, KKK
IRS, TNT
CBS, NBC

FBI, CIA
ATF, KKK
IRS, TNT
CBS, NBC

Singing:
Telling lies, to our vision
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our babies
Only truth, can take us away...

News snippet:
"uh, we view each other uh, with uh, a great love and a great understanding
And that we
Try to expand this to the general, uh, black population and also people,
Oppressed people all over the world, and, I think that uh, we differ from
Uhmm... uh, some other groups simply because we understand the system better
Than uh, most uh, groups understand the system, and uh, with this
Realization, uh, we've attempted to form a strong political base based in the
Community with the only strength that we have and that's the strength of uh,
A potentially destructive force if we don't get freedom."

I grew up on hip-hop, but have become disgusted by it in the past 15 years or so (besides my musical tastes have matured). I'm glad a mainstream rapper said what needs to be said. Last time that happened if I remember Jada Kiss said something about 9/11, and it was watered down. This rappers lyrics are really tight and you can tell he is aware or in-the-know. Surprised really, because most artists that say these things are underground. To be honest I doubt this will get much airplay, and his mainstream career will probably be over. Underground artists like Dead Prez have been saying things like this for years but get no love on the radio.

EDIT: Mach beat me too it lol. Yeah Dead Prez has alot of songs here are some:

Stay Healthy
They Schools
Assassination
Food, Clothes, Shelter
Psychology
We want freedom
Police state
Pistol

and a few others
