So Low

So Low

Talib Kweli

Yeah, I like that
Snap your fingers
You can do it all by yourself
You can do it all by yourself

I can go so low
I can feel the gravity that's in the world around me
I can go so low
I can feel the fire burning as it swirls around me

And I've been so low
I felt ice cold in hours at the bottom of the sea
Might have been so low
You might did low, get low, but you never been as low as me

I always speak for the struggle my people still hurting
I'm a name brand I'm a product but still a real person
I'm still flirting with death although I'm still certain
About my commitments in life although I'm still searching

I better find a way, if not I better make a path
One that's seldom traveled by the masses
I never get stuck in all the traffic I cut through all the plastic
Enemies of the enlightened like the government is fascist

I talk it how I live it yet I'm still considered a walking contradiction
'Cause I'm breaking out of your artistic prison, listen
I got my own demons what I'm supposed to do with yours
Times like this I gotta remind myself what I do it for

People I knew before celebrity swear they see the change in me
I tell 'em change is God you gotta let it be
How does it feel to come full circle
Still cursing, still pursing my lips to pull purple but,

I can go so low
I can feel the gravity that's in the world around me
I can go so low
I can feel the fire burning as it swirls around me
And I've been so low
I felt ice cold in hours at the bottom of the sea
Might have been so low
You might did low, get low but, you never been as low as me

Witness it, the building of a legacy
So let us just pray cause the journey that's ahead of us
Got us facing a task that just might get the best of us
That's why we gotta clash with the Titans like Pegasus, no Oedipus

but it's like the beat is my therapist
When I let it in it get up in the cracks and the crevices
Of my memories what kind of treasure are you buried with
You fight when you die are you a soldier or a terrorist

Remember this there's no one else to blame when you're solo
Establish your fan base local before you take it global
Don't be scared spend your own dough
You gotta speak up be vocal sometimes you feel so low

Ain't nowhere to go but up, go with us
We just getting started why you slowing up?
But know enough to know this was done by the collective we
Even if my name is on the record sleeve I ain't into brevity
What the fuck is a celebrity?

I can go so low
I can feel the gravity that's in the world around me
I can go so low
I can feel the fire burning as it swirls around me
And I've been so low
I felt ice cold in hours at the bottom of the sea
Might have been so low
You might did low, get low, but you never been as low as me
