    Here we are
    here we are
    This one right here is for the people

    [Hook] (Sample -MAMADOU & MARIAM, "SABALI")
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kiye
    Ni kêra môgô
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kagni
    Ni kêra môgô
    [Nas Talking]
    Ay yo D. Lets go all the way on this one.

    [Damian Marley - Verse 1]
    Some of the smartest dummies
    Can't read the language of Egyptian mummies
    An' a fly go a moon
    And can't find food for the starving tummies
    Pay no mind to the youths
    Cause it's not like the future depends on it
    But save the animals in the zoo
    Cause the chimpanzee dem a make big money
    This is how the media pillages
    On the TV the picture is
    Savages in villages
    And the scientist still can't explain the pyramids, huh
    Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids
    Stereotyping the image of the images
    And this is what the image is
    You buy a khaki pants
    And all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
    An' a thief out gold and thief out the scrolls and even the buried bones
    Some of the worst paparazzis I've ever seen and I ever known
    Put the worst on display so the world can see
    And that's all they will ever show
    So the ones in the west
    Will never move east
    And feel like they could be at home
    Dem get tricked by the beast
    But a where dem ago flee when the monster is fully grown?
    Solomonic linage whe dem still can't defeat and them coulda never clone
    My spiritual DNA that print in my soul and I will forever Own Lord


    [Nas talking]
    Yeah, Sabali. Thats patience. That's what the old folks told me...
    Discovering the World before this World. A World buried in time.
    Uncover with rhymes. It gets no realer.

    [Damian Marley: Verse 2]
    Huh, we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
    We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
    Can you read thoughts? can you read palms?
    Huh, can you predict the future? can you see storms, coming?
    The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
    Now the Earth is round if the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh
    The average man can't prove of most of the things that he chooses to speak of
    And still won't research and find out the root of the truth that you seek of
    Scholars teach in Universities and claim that they're smart and cunning
    Tell them find a cure when we sneeze and that's when their nose start running
    And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
    Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wed mud
    Can you read signs? can you read stars?
    Can you make peace? can you fight war?
    Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars? huh
    Can you survive, Against All Odds, Now?


    It's crazy when you feed people the truth you don't know how they're gonna react. You're scared of wrong doers, people that just ignorant, You're scared of the truth, be patient for now.

    [Nas: Verse 3]
    Who wrote the Bible? Who wrote the Qur'an?
    And was it a lightning storm
    That gave birth to the Earth
    And then dinosaurs were born? damn
    Who made up words? who made up numbers?
    And what kind of spell is mankind under?
    Everything on the planet we preserve and can it
    Microwaved it and try eat
    No matter what we'll survive it
    What's hue? what's man? what's human?
    Anything along the land we consuming
    Eatin', deletin', ruin
    Trying to get paper
    Gotta have land, gotta have acres
    So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson
    Watch n-ggas play the game like the lakers
    In a world full of 52 fakers
    Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers
    You superstitious? throw salt over your shoulders
    Make a wish for the day cuz
    Like somebody got a doll of me
    Stickin' needles in my arteries
    But I can't feel it
    Sometimes it's like 'pardon me, but I got a real big spirit'
    I'm fearless.... I'm fearless
    Don't you try and grab hold of my soul
    It's like a military soldier since seven years old
    I held real dead bodies in my arms
    Felt their body turn cold, oh
    Why we born in the first place
    If this is how we gotta go?
    This goes to all the wisdom and knowledge seekers of the World. Sabali, Patience, yeah.
