Guru

Guru (Devanagari गुरु) is a Sanskrit term for "teacher" or "master", especially in Indian religions. The Hindu guru-shishya tradition is the oral tradition or religious doctrine transmitted from teacher to student. In the United States, the meaning of "guru" has been used to cover anyone who acquires followers, especially by exploiting their naiveté, due to the inflationary use of the term in new religious movements. more »

[Guru] 
You know sometimes I be lookin' through the darkness 
Tryin' to find the light 
Tryin' to do what's right with all my might

[Mica Paris] (Guru) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Yeah, I'm lookin', lookin' at you) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(I see you lookin' at me; whatcha want to do?) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Here we go; take a walk with me) 
(Lookin' through the darkness
Check it out now, now, now, now, now, now) 

[Guru] 
Now, as I peer through the window of gloom, and everyday living 
And all the hardships one faces to make you give in 
I dig more intensely, finding greater strength 
A lot of heads is empty
I've got a greater rank 
Than emcees not aware of situations 
That'll force one to understand true stipulations 
Thou shalt not bite
Thou shalt not front 
Fake it if you want, but for the battles I've come, 'cause I'm...

[Mica Paris] (Guru) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Yeah, I'm lookin' out, lookin' at you) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Lookin' at me; my style is free; do you want to be?)

[Guru] 
For me this rap life is real life
I don't have to create some false image to make the crowd get hyped 
Too many children get the wrong message from clowns that walk around 
Hopelessly lost, thinkin' that they're the boss 
They're in a daze, while dope emcees don't get the front page 
Me - I try to channel my rage
As I travel through the city regularly 
Turning the anger and frustration straight into energy 
Yes, you will remember me as the brother who cared 
To dare to step up, with his soul bared 
But never fearing 'cause I've got instructions 
From Him, to go and fight the corruption, so I'm...

[Mica Paris] (Guru) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(I've got to look through it, try to, try to find the light) 
Lookin' through the darkness
(Uh, maintainin')
 
[Guru] 
My granddaddy always told me to keep the light shining 
So as my mic illuminates, you can feel the state that I'm in 
Thoroughly immersed in a verse; way more than hardcore 
I endure 'cause in myself I'm secure 
Delivering syllables and selections with profound perfection 
Comin' back like the resurrection 
In this session, I'm professin', that those who don't 
Hear and understand, never loved me, and so I planned 
To take a stand, as one who is firmly focused 
Plus I'm mad worthy with words 
I rock from East New York all the way to the suburbs 
The lightkeeper, knowledge seeker 
I switch the stress that's on my mind 
Into the voice that rocks your speaker 
And I get deeper than the ocean when I'm...

[Mica Paris] (Guru) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Yeah, I'm lookin' through it) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Ain't nothing to it but to do it
Gotta freak it, now let me freak it; check it out) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(All my life) 
(Lookin' through the darkness
Yeah, ohh yeah)

[Guru] 
Yo, I'm so ill, I go ill, when beats with jazz 
Fill my need to express myself; like the blues, I can't lose 
Weak emcees - they're seekin' refuge 
From my barrage; there's no rescue 
Then I look through the madness, finding sanity 
I'm crazy alert; I never swim in vanity 
I do this rap stuff every year 
Aiyyo, peace to my fam, especially my man, Premier, as I'm...

[Mica Paris] (Guru) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Yeah, lookin' out to the wilderness) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(The jungle, uhh; everybody's got to rumble) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Lookin' through the darkness)

[Mica Paris] (Guru) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Got to find my way; doin' my own thing) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
(Walkin' through the darkness) 
Got to find a way 
Got to get, got to get it on 
(Can you see the light?) 
Got to get, got to get, got to get it on 
(Peace aight) 
Lookin' through the darkness 
Lookin' through the darkness 
Got to get, got to get, I've got to get it on 
Lookin' through the darkness 
Got to get, got to get, I've got to get it on 
Got to get, got to get, I've got to get it on
