Perception (feat. Lyrakela)
I'm an honest man although no one seems to believe me I'm a giving man, so that means I'm also receiving Perceiving doesn't require believing Because I'm merely feeding off what my inner feeling is revealing. The secret of life is learning how to enjoy it Learning means suffering, but so many avoid it What doesn't kill you only makes you tougher Smarter, stronger, when life gets harder, you'll live longer, but still suffer There's no escaping it Thus, in accepting wisdom and pursuing enjoyment in knowledge I am embracing it I urge you Christians to vision beyond the cross All followers of religion, stay on track and don't get lost If religion is a way of life, then embody the scriptures Don't be led astray from rationale by specifics, or your oppressors will get ya' With your picture blocked, because your nose is stuck in a book I'm wishing to project an image of an inner look, a bigger look More than a rap, more than a brief glance An infinite source of tap into, where truth expands Reach hands, and take the next necessary advance Give in to honesty, honestly, it grants, a clean conscience You're not a monster if you're human, only confused So no you're no excused, but I can forgive this nonsense Yo, what is greater, the creation or the creator I'm just a mediator sent to replace the hater Making haters into lovers, making strangers into brothers Teaching people to resist evil and to love one another Forgiveness is the necessary combatant of hate Lest hate shall forever manifest and endlessly create Therefore, punishment is unnecessary unless to preserve fear And without witnessing existence free of this it won't really be clear What the power of love could be That's why I hold no power above Loving all negates hate, no evil can touch me Or even stop me, promoting lovely truth You could rob me, but never of my view I'm set out to prove, power without perception is spiritually useless Therefore, I dish out lessons lyrically fused with music A man with knowledge and unafraid to share it The times demand change, the cap fits, so I wear it If you break it down, there was a difference or similarity In everything all around and perception is the ability To ascertain between yin and yang To begin being, and to see together they are one and the same Perception is knowing how to give you power to the higher from whence you came Replacing your shame with justification based on the will of all Perceive the truth and we will not fall Cease with this fear, hear my call Fear not, hear the call Love is what we got, it's for all Every day in many ways people that astray with false perceptions But for myself, I must say I find no exceptions But to follow the true light It's in my sight when blinded by the dark nights Some call us the Suns, because we be the ones shining bright Gather this insight and carry it across the lands I nailed it to the cross at Jehovah's demand We want some peace and love in our hands This how we do it, understand? Understood, but I can't fathom Those who don't recognize these rappings for what they is, which is... This blessed message is for you to caress it But don't dress it with lies, don't choke out the love cause it will never die We stay high, and we fly, in the sky, of supreme love If you want to dry the tears your cried, just look above I'm peeling your eyelids and revealing the things that did Scope out the scene and bring hope and dreams to a supreme state of being Evil fleeing, my third eye seeing, things never seen before I find peace of mind in times of peace and war Personally, I prefer primitive truth over civilized lies That's why have I've had this habit since youth to oversimplify Yet I'm dignified because society forces these codes upon me But to deny where it all came from, that's surely ornery Meaning: if you can't take society's devices upon yourself And relate them to your individual needs and see how they help So that you would understand, paying heed to necessity and demand Then you neglect the reason that we have them, and when that happens We end up in a worse position than that which we began To create a definition for this God that has always lived in man Desiring us to formulate a plan to clean the land from filth So stand, you could live truth and not regret Laws were made to guide us, not so we could forget, our sole obligation Laws were made to establish truth and honesty throughout a whole nation We need reminding, because people ignore what's pure, bending laws to shape them For selfishness, thus negating the purpose of justice, and this degrades them I spit this to the youth with truth I stay bulletproof No weapon formed against me shall prosper Take your best shot and now I got you I'll make an offer you can't refuse Take this knowledge and you can't lose But don't abuse the way of truth Let this music soothe and move you In a way that will let light shine through you And have you searching for a brighter day There's still so much more I got to say... Then let it spray, can't nothing get in love's way Society tries to hide what you got inside They want to see you die with your wings by your side They don't want to see you fly Because up that high, you'll see the lies And you'll see the truth And then you'll have a choice to choose between the two We choose truth, and love as a proof of something worth meaning I got big dreams that I'm dreaming, bright lights gleaming Beaming things, seeming to be leaning on a supernatural reason Freeing men from legions of demons and seasons of treason These enemies, freezing on their knees I'm easing their pain and watching them pass like the breeze What's my reason? These be my rhymes What's the lesson for our times? I got a question for your minds Yo, what is greater, the creation or the creator I'm just a mediator sent to replace the hater Making haters into lovers, making strangers into brothers Teaching people to resist evil and to love one another Honestly speaking, we emceeing to reach something Greater than what can be seen, by the naked eye Some try to fill themselves up with what they already got inside Some say that my King died, but I know they lied And I abide by this, and I rise with tides to resist The evil that persists, I stand up and step onto a higher level I desire with lyrical fire to beat down the liars and devils With little bass and treble I spit this solid like a rock, the opposition got pebbles We rocking this from suburbia to the ghettos We the Suns, we're claiming that love is for everyone I say that into the face of the racists, we winning the race, ain't left to chase us Take this amazing grace cause it's the only thing that will save us I'm an honest man although no one seems to believe me I'm a giving man, so that means I'm also receiving Perceiving doesn't require believing Because I'm merely feeding off what my inner feeling is revealing
