Public Enemy – He Got Game lyrics

If man is the father
The son is the center of the earth
In the middle of the universe
Then why is this verse comin
Six times rehearsed
Don't freestyle much
But I write a lot such... word
Amongst the fiends
Controlled by the screens
What does it all mean
All this shit I'm seein ha ha
Human beings scream vocal javelins
Signs of a local nigga unravelin Uh huh
My wandering
Got my ass wondering
Where Christ is
In all this crisis
Hatin Satan
Never knew what nice is
Check the papers
While I bet on Isis
More than your eye can see
And ears can hear
Year by year
All the sense disappears
Nonsense perseveres
Prayers laced wit fear
2 triple 0 is near

It might feel good
It might sound a lil somethin
But Damn the game
If it don't mean nuttin
What is game who got game
Where's the game
In life
Behind the game
Behind the game
I got game
She got game
We got game
They got game
He got game
It might feel good
It might sound a lil somethin
But fuck the game
If it ain't sayin nuttin

Damn was it somethin I said
Pretend you don't see
So you turn your head
Race scared of it's shadow
Does it matter?
Thought of reperations
Got em playin wit the population
Nothing to lose
Everythings approved
People used
Even murders excused
White men in suits
Don't have to jump
Still there's 1001 ways
To lose wit the shoes
God takes care of ol folks and fools
While the devil takes care
Of makin all the rules
Folks don't even own themselves
Payin mental rent
To corporate presidents

1 outta 1 million residents
Being dissident
Who ain't kissin it
The politics of chains and whips
Got the sick
Missin chips and all the championships
What's love got to do
Wit what you got
Don't let a win get to your head
Or a loss to your heart
Nonsense perseveres
Prayers laced wit fear
2 triple O is near


Ya that's right everybody got game
We just here to let you all know
That pe is in full effect till the year 2000 Joe
My man sing it.

There's something happenin here
What it is aint exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Yeah that's right ha ha
Telling me that I got to beware
Its time we stopped children
What's that sound everybody look
What's going down

Hey yo...
I don't think they heard ya Steve
Sing it again kick it to them again
One more time

Its time we stopped children
What's that sound everybody look
What's going down
Its time we stopped children
What's that sound everybody look
What's going down

That's right boy pe in full effect boy
Till the year 2000 Joe

Stop look what's that sound (come on sing it)
Everybody knows what's goin down (Here we go again yo)
Stop look what's that sound (Hey hey)
Everybody knows what's goin down

Background continues...

These are some serious times
That we livin in G
And our new world order
Is about to begin
You know what I'm sayin
Now the question is...
Are you ready for the real revolution
Which is the evolution of the mind
If you seek than you shall find
That we all come from the divine
You dig what I'm sayin
Now if you take heed to the words of wisdom
That are written on the walls of life
Than universally we will stand
And divided we will fall
Cause love conquers all
You understand what I'm sayin
This is a call to all you sleepin souls
Wake up and be in control of your own cycle
And be on the lookout for those spirits tonight
Trying to steal your light
You know what I'm sayin
Look what's inside yourself and
Peace, give thanks, live life and believe
You dig me
You got me

    My name is jake, but they call me the fannan. That means: the artist in arabic. I am here to tell all, of the single same story that every religion is teaching and/or preaching. Every story is based on the same story but told in the language of the people, so that they could understand how they got there and maybe set them on a path of the truth in self discovery while establishing order amongst the tempermental humans. The barrier was placed for us to bring down. This is where evolution of the mind takes place.
