R.A. the Rugged Man - Learn Truth (feat. Talib Kweli) lyrics


Take a piece of America back
It's called truth...

[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]

We the last of the vintage flowers we carry it on our shoulders
I keep my friends close and the devils a lot closer
When the Freedom Riders approach them, their appetite is vulturous
Soldiers of fortune ain't never no match for soldiers of culture
My flow is so fucking honest, you said you wanted to hear it
Your lying, cause all you wanted was for me to lift up your spirits
The truth is too fucking ugly and trust me the shit got layers
You touch me, you think you tough, leave u toothless as rugby players,
From sufis to soothsayers discussing the true saviours, we move with the gangstas
You niggas sweeter than the fruit flavors, the booth slayer,
Proving it's futile to hide from us, you misguided as missiles so a
Suicide bombers taking orders from the mullah and waiting for karma to pull up..
Their stones are no match for bullets
Israeli rachets are fuller
Gotta race to meet Allah like they chasing them with a cop car
Like there's honor in being a martyr and a terrorist is a rockstar
Dodging the Abu Dhabi or dodging the paparazzi
Still probably as popular as Swastikas for nazis,
The cops protect the property,
Properly, when they crack your heads,
Murderers get as cocky as Perseus when the cracker dead
I wonder what be running through these crackers' heads
So my niggas is spilling more blood than
Cincinatti castle blacker red?
I'll take an Actifed, go back to bed, allergic to the fumes
Having a funeral for the news cause the facts is dead.
The trust is gone from the neocons to Barrack Obama
America eats its young from Casey Anthony to the Octomom
Fix it and mix it up, like Marshall Law for the Octagon,
I spit the fire til it burn down Babylon


Take a piece of America back
You will learn
It's called truth

[Verse 2: RA The Rugged Man]

Death by suicide bomb, protestants, Bibles, a Koran, or Islam
From Genghis Khan to Vietnam I can smell the napalm
Rape victims, ripped stockings
Redneck clan members doing church bombings
Innocent foetus' being aborted with no options
Human governments ruin 'em
Worrying what weapons could be used to be nukin' 'em
Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem
Slaves treated like property, to Pearl Harbor to Hiroshima to Nagasaki
Adolf Hitler, to every murderous Nazi
To the Gambinos, to the Gottis, to every mafia atrocity
Child pornography, babies starving and dying in poverty
Serbians fighting Croatians in Yugoslavia
Muslim women being raped, up to 40,000 in the war in Bosnia
The 50 million killed in the second World War
The government's poisoning the minds and the bodies
Of the babies that are born poor
Airplanes blown up by Islamic extremists
In religion there's always drama
Whether worshipping the profit Mohammed or Jesus
Small pox to Napoleon's troops dying from typhus
From the Spanish flu to the black plague today its AIDS virus
Bodies in coffins, political extortions
Racist mobs murdering, Willie Turks, Michael Griffith and Usha Forkins
Check the murder rate, is it human nature to murder and hate?
The Catholic church claimed women were witches
And burned 'em at the stake
Pedophile predators attacking
.38 Beretta used by Ghandi's assassin
16 bullets in Malcolm, It happened uptown Manhattan
And the homicide, Reagan, '80s epidemic of crack
And soldiers in action dying in Iraq and never coming back
And now let's...

Take a piece of America back
You will learn
It's called truth
It's called truth
You will learn
It's called truth
It's called truth
