Talib Kweli – Heads Up Eyes Open (feat. Rick Ross & Yummy Bingham) (On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) (Live)


When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
My last victory was great moments in Black history

The media deceiving you Think what you see on TV’s true?
Let’s go
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
And some loud, I got super packs like I backed Hillary
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
I inspire the resurrection of kings like Hezekiah
At times he introspective, but his biblehood never questioned
Heads up and eyes open
Nefertiti would hold me when I was cold
But the picture is so much bigger
God is what I see in you, so you might as well believe in you
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Top tier niggas blossomed in the basement
Business deals and the Bentleys I can’t afford
Than what we could even imagine
A dying man will make a confession, try to get into heaven
Heads up and eyes open
Put your faith into action
Take it to the top
In what you don’t see or understand
All the nights that we were lacking those refreshments

They misrepresenting, misquoting then they misleading you
No excuses, if I start it then I’ll see it through
[Intro: Talib Kweli]
These average rappers is acting up for the dough
A faithful man never need evidence to believe

Put your faith into action
We taking stock right now
Lost in desire, I walked through the devil’s fire
Devil knocking on my door, he like a narc
He’ll bleed for his beliefs practicing civil disobedience

A violent man will stock up on weapons and go to war for his
It’s hard to feel better
Than what we could even imagine
Than what we could even imagine
Recite the Quran, I’m in the dark
Gotta be the example for children to do their chores
But still he gotta work for the blessings that he receives
Roll up a bag of that weed, therefore I spark
Put your faith into action
Take it to the top
And loves his enemies enough to deliver justice
But the picture is so much bigger
Communion Sunday, my twenties went in the bowl
In what you don’t see or understand
If they want the ring, they coming for the throne like they the sons of kings
In what you don’t see or understand
Sometimes it’s hard to believe

Rolling Stones would’ve thought I was the boss
If he’s not really sure what he’s saying, he don’t discuss it
Blowing weed smoke on the cover of The Source
Let’s go You ready?
Yea I tell you what I believe, but I back it up with what I know
An honest man knows only liars are scared of the truth

[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
Just cause you are a character

[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Rain down, thunder storm with the flows
[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
I celebrated with a bottle I just brought back from Italy
The trust you put in me to be a beast with this rhyming
Don’t mean you have character
A man of peace uses his words in different mediums
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Take it to the top, take it to the top
A righteous man walks the earth without judgment
Get post-traumatic stress disorder, become an officer
A pious man relies on religion for his direction
A wise man know what he know and what he doesn’t
[Outro: Talib Kweli & Yummy Bingham]
Let’s go
Thinking his lifestyle is blocking his blessing
Sometimes it’s hard to believe

When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
Belief is a funny thing, in case you’re wondering
[Verse 3: Talib Kweli]
Fallen soldier on his own so we march
Articulate with the bounce, now I’m back like I’m Derrick Rose
It’s hard to feel better
But the picture is so much bigger
That’s where the rubber meets the road and where your faith meets science
It’s hard to feel better
Forgive me lord for them bitches the night before
Yea, that’s where we at with it
Once the one on the bench with the snotty nose

His word is his bond, but his action’s always the proof
Heads up and eyes open
It’s the facts versus the facts simile, your raps killing me
