Talib Kweli – Cold Rain (Testo)


Lets try something new
It's been a long time coming!
Let me try something brand new 
Hey yo Ski!
What you ever do, man?
Come on!
Yo, what we doing it for?


[Talib Kweli - Verse 1]
This is for all the day-trippers and the hipsters 
Whores and the fashionistas 
Spiritual leaders practicing all the laws of attraction 
The teachers who read the passages 
From the back of a G? 
That be bustin off Dalai Lama's or flashing heaters 
the last of the boosters 
With the shooting, the thugging and all the booning and spooning 
and all the crooning, and cooning and auto-tuning, alive 
You be tellin, peddlin' to consumers I'm helping them to see through it
get with this new movement, 
Let's move it!


Feel the cold rain 
Still I'm standing right here 
Even the winter summer days


[Talib Kweli - Verse 1]
Yeah I'm a product of Reaganomics 
From the blocks where he rocking a feds like J Electronica 
drop and make this a lock 
if he promises where the heart is 
whether Jesus or Mohammad 
regardless of where the Mosque is (word) 
They hope for the Apocalypse like a self-fulfilling prophecy 
Tell me when do we stop it? 
Do they ask you your religion before you rent an apartment? 
Is the answer burning Korans 
So that we can defend Islamics? 
The end upon us with a hash tag, a trending topic


[ From: http://www.hiphoprec.com/testo/talib-kweli-cold-rain-lyrics.html ]
You take away the freedoms that we invite in the game 
Then you disrespect the soldiers; you ask them to die in vein 
In a desert praying for rain 
The music's like a drug, and they tend to take it to vein 
It ain't for the well-behaved 
The soundtrack for when you're great but its more for when you've felt afraid 
More than your average rapper 
So you sort of felt the way 
The brain is like a cage, you a slave, that's why they lovin' you 
This is the book that Eli that start with a K-W.



[Talib Kweli - Verse 2]
I do it for the trappers, other rappers 
the Backpackers, the crackers 
the n-ggas, the metal-packers 
the victims of ghetto factories 
I do it for the families, citizens of humanity 
Emcee's, endangered species like manatees 
I do it for the future of my children! 
They the hope for the hopeless 
Karma approaches, we gon' be food for a flock of vultures 
The end of the World 
Ain't nothing left but the cockroaches 
and the freedom fighters 
We're freedom writers like Bob Moses 
the chosen, freedom writers like ? 
For my block, my borough, my hood, my city, my state, yeah 
My obligation is to my community is so clear! 
yeah, we gotta save them, this opportunity so rare! 
We do it so big over here that it's no bare 
To the punks, bitches, the chumps, the snitches, the sneak in the game 
We let them live with all they're weak and they're lame 
The bozo's and joker's, promoting when they're speaking my name
