Get Wise
Sho Baraka Lyrics


I'm at this open mic
All these poets wanna complain about the world but ain't nobody changing it/
I'm sitting in this class
All students want to argue about change man but ain't nobody doing it/
I'm sitting in this church
The preacher man is teaching about a new life but ain't nobody living it/
(ain't nobody living it)
I'm at this open mic
All these poets wanna complain about the world but ain't nobody changing it/
I'm sitting in this class
All students want to argue about change man but ain't nobody doing it/
I'm sitting in this church
The preacher man is teaching about a new life but ain't nobody living it/
(ain't nobody living it)
here's perfection lets go ahead a ruin it/
It won't be long before I'm gone/
I'll be home and I'll be strong/
(get Wise)
Handed perfection and we ruined it/
Trying to get back to being nuded again/
Those who make claims ain't doing it/
Had change in my pocket but I'm losing it/
Whats the cost for beautiful feet/
We just all talk got beautiful teeth/
I see the grey haired just talking about us/
The wisest in room ain't talking the loudest/
Young man keep-clanging cymbal/
They exit while you intro/
The lost man needed some info/
But I can't hear through a window/
I see the world needs more change/
But I just want more fame/
Cuz my pride wants more tower/
Before we work lets sleep one more hour/
It won't be long before I'm gone/
I'll be home and I'll be strong/
(get Wise)
We debate who the blind is- meanwhile we stand around he done bumped right into us/
We a bunch of peters trying to act strong point fingers trying to call out judas/
Before I went to sleep I made GOD a promise that I'll grow up and pay him homage/
But when I sleep if I can be honest, all my dreams are just so childish/
Alone in a crowd full of noise, barely entertained in a room full of toys/
Living in Jericho hoping it gets destroyed, living amongst men disguised as boys/
Will you feet be a blessing- will your hands leave impressions/
It might be a problem if you have all the answers and ask no questions/
Everybody wants the crown now/
Nobody even wants to lay their life down/
We just talk we ain't really trying to live it my homie/I guess that's what they mean by religion my homie/
I see the world needs more change/
But I just want more fame/
Cuz my pride wants more tower/
Before we work lets sleep one more hour/
It won't be long before I'm gone/
I'll be home and I'll be strong/
(get Wise)

Rapzilla.com

Brian Jenkins

@AmishoBaraka is a mad genius. STILL one of the best and informative songs and videos ever! Blessings to you and yours good sir! I thank the Most High that I had the honor and privilege to meet you during the Narrative tour.

Cozy

Sho's flow is siick! Really showed out in this one - two thumbs up!!

JeaktheGeek

Powerful message to the song! We need more change, and it starts with us;)

Sara Christiaens

Awesome song Sho Baraka love your song shut us down too ;) keep up the good music ..Amen!

Demetrius Dowlen

Sho put it down in this track man! I heard more than the lyrics, I began to see & hear the conviction of the outcry for Congo inside of this track. Heart & Soul Are The Foundation Of Great Music!! Sho hasn't changed a bit, but Swoope's production skills are changing the minds of fellow hip-hoppers! Its CRAZY YO! SOOOOOO NEEDED!

Chard Davis

one of the best songs on the album. Real music.

Wedge Antilles

still good. 2 years later.

The Anointed One

He's absolutely right.
