Lupe Fiasco - The Emperor's Soundtrack lyrics

[Verse 1]
I told you I would show up screaming out FNF
Till the world, blow up, they said I was so finished
I told 'em its show business
Meanin there's no business, 'less Fiasco's in it
Disrespect the dress code, wear my street clothes in it
Measured, sold, and clothed in it
Opened up closed, after I entered and drove in it, like uhh

[Hook]
Only fear God
Know the weapons of the weak
The weakness of the heart
And never fall asleep

[Verse 2]
Roll in it, music bumpin, windows tinted
Through they good neighbourhoods and all of the wolves in it
Exerted control in it
Seen it come and go, stolen and sold in it
Diamond and gold blinted
Fountain of youth, dippin my toes in it
Bounce in the booth, spit it like Skoal Minted
Putting my heart and my soul in it
Cause

[Hook]
Only fear God
Know the weapons of the weak
The weakness of the heart
And never fall asleep

[Bridge]
Once upon a time, not long ago
When the pusher man creep, where they live life po'

[Verse 3]
With fifteen in the clip and one in the hole
Hallway wall full of bricks, only some of us know
None of us know the makers of the toast
Like the bottom of the stove, that was used in the murderin' of the scroll
Heart colder than Edy's
Won't let the seedy city defeat me
Rub me out like genies, won't concede til I'm graffiti
Nigga what

[Hook]
Only fear God
Know the weapons of the weak
The weakness of the heart
And never fall asleep

[Verse 4]
I done bellowed, said "What up?" to the reaper
Hell met like Rydell, then high-water, hello
To the five-year-old gunshot hearer, I hear ya
Clearer than the invisible man in the mirror
Cheer up, I put it on the bars like beer nuts
Put a bug in they ear, so from here up, they hear us

[Hook]
Only fear God
Know the weapons of the weak
The weakness of the heart
And never fall asleep

[Bridge]
Once upon a time, not long ago
When the pusher man creep, where they live life po'

[Verse 5]
I put it on my grandmomma's daughter
My microphone control of the soul of slave hummin "Wadin in the Water"
I author like D.W. brother, like a hustla
God place me in ya armor, I prescribe no partnas
I do it for the hood like a parka
And tell my niggaz not to shiver
Only time we quiver like a archer is

[Hook]
Only fear God
Know the weapons of the weak
The weakness of the heart
And never fall asleep

[Verse 6]
Here we are now, entertain us
Change don't change us
Ever since the game trained us
We came up like worms in the rain
I dream my chain became a loose noose that was used to hang us
So now, my insane brain, my 32 teeth
And two feet creep like its Elm Street
Cause

[Hook]
Only fear God
Know the weapons of the weak
The weakness of the heart
And never fall asleep

[Bridge]
Once upon a time, not long ago
When the pusher man creep, where they live life po'
