Heads up and eyes open
He’ll bleed for his beliefs practicing civil disobedience
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
Belief is a funny thing, in case you’re wondering
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
A righteous man walks the earth without judgment
Put your faith into action
Just cause you are a character
[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
Think what you see on TV’s true? The media deceiving you
But the picture is so much bigger
It’s the facts versus the facts simile, your raps killing me
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Take it to the top, take it to the top
God is what I see in you, so you might as well believe in you
But the picture is so much bigger
It’s hard to feel better
Rain down, thunder storm with the flows
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Communion Sunday, my twenties went in the bowl
Let’s go

The trust you put in me to be a beast with this rhyming
Let’s go You ready?
Yea I tell you what I believe, but I back it up with what I know

I inspire the resurrection of kings like Hezekiah
Fallen soldier on his own so we march
Yea, that’s where we at with it

Blowing weed smoke on the cover of The Source
Take it to the top
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
Heads up and eyes open
Nefertiti would hold me when I was cold
In what you don’t see or understand
Rolling Stones would’ve thought I was the boss
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
A violent man will stock up on weapons and go to war for his
If they want the ring, they coming for the throne like they the sons of kings
Thinking his lifestyle is blocking his blessing
Don’t mean you have character
Than what we could even imagine
A pious man relies on religion for his direction

These average rappers is acting up for the dough
[Intro: Talib Kweli]
Once the one on the bench with the snotty nose
An honest man knows only liars are scared of the truth
Get post-traumatic stress disorder, become an officer
A man of peace uses his words in different mediums
His word is his bond, but his action’s always the proof
[Outro: Talib Kweli & Yummy Bingham]
Gotta be the example for children to do their chores
[Verse 3: Talib Kweli]
But the picture is so much bigger
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
Heads up and eyes open
Take it to the top, take it to the top
It’s hard to feel better
At times he introspective, but his biblehood never questioned
And some loud, I got super packs like I backed Hillary
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
No excuses, if I start it then I’ll see it through
Recite the Quran, I’m in the dark
A dying man will make a confession, try to get into heaven
Roll up a bag of that weed, therefore I spark

Lost in desire, I walked through the devil’s fire
But still he gotta work for the blessings that he receives
Than what we could even imagine
They misrepresenting, misquoting then they misleading you
Let’s go
Top tier niggas blossomed in the basement
That’s where the rubber meets the road and where your faith meets science

Devil knocking on my door, he like a narc
Forgive me lord for them bitches the night before
All the nights that we were lacking those refreshments
Take it to the top
If he’s not really sure what he’s saying, he don’t discuss it
[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
In what you don’t see or understand

A faithful man never need evidence to believe
We taking stock right now
Put your faith into action
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
It’s hard to feel better

A wise man know what he know and what he doesn’t
My last victory was great moments in Black history
In what you don’t see or understand
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]

I celebrated with a bottle I just brought back from Italy
Put your faith into action
Articulate with the bounce, now I’m back like I’m Derrick Rose
And loves his enemies enough to deliver justice
Business deals and the Bentleys I can’t afford

Than what we could even imagine
