The The - Good Morning Beautiful.
From 1989.

Islamic call to prayer...
Satellite oh Satellite, who sits upon our skies,
how deep do you see when you spy into our lives
?

I know that God lives in everybody's souls

and the only devil in your world
 lives in the human heart
So now ask yourself: 
What is human? 
And what is truth
?
Ask yourself
: Whose voice is it that whispers unto you?

From the cellars of your homes

From the tops of your city roofs

Ask yourself
: Whose voice is it that whispers unto you?

Who is it?

That can reach down from above and set yours souls ablaze with love,

Or fill you with the insanity of violence and it's brother lust
Who is it?

Whose words have been twisted beyond recognition - 
in order to build your planet Earth's religions?
Who is it?

Who could make your little armies of the left
 and your little armies of the right - 
light up your skies tonight?
Now some of you may live...and some of you may die

But remember
 that nothing in the world can kill you inside

For he is thinking of you
 - in your great cities of great solitude
Oh children you've still got a lot to fucking learn
The only path to heaven is via hell...
Good Morning Beautiful...
Goodbye world.

BLIND-BLIND-BLIND... who's blind, David ? :blink:

Wrench: "Wrence, wrenc, deceit, a trick"

Signs
Signs are lost
Signs disappeared
Turn invisible
Got no sign
Somebody got busted
Got a face of stone
And a ghostwritten biography
Dogs start to run in
Hungry for some food
Dogs start a-twitching
And they're looking at you
It was light
By five
Torn all apart
All in the name of democracy
He's hurt
He's dying
Claimed he was a terrorist
Claimed to avert a catastrophe
Someone should'a told him
That the buck stops here
No one ever said
That he was involved with thieves

[Chorus:]
And they're blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

[Verse 2:]
No sense of harmony, no sense of
Time, don't mention harmony, say
What is it? What is it? What is it? Give
A little shock, and he raises his hand
Somebody shouts out, says: what is
It? What is it? What is it?
He was shot down in the night! Peop-
Ple ride by but his body's still alive
The girl in the window what has she
Done? She looks down at me
Says: "I don't want to die!"

[Chorus:]
And I'm blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

[Verse 3:]
Somebody could have told us where they go
Crawling all around looking for foot, foot, footprints
Now tell me what the hell have we become?
Some dirty little bastards what the hell is going on?
No sense of harmony, no sense of
Time, don't mention harmony, say:
What is it? What is it? What is it? Give
A little shock, and he raises his hand
Somebody shouts out, says: what is
It? What is it? What is it?
He was shot down in the night!
People ride by but his body's still alive
The girl in the window what has she
Done? She looks down at me
Says: "i don't want to die!"

[Chorus:]
They're blind and they're blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Blind, blind
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

Rakim - It's Been A Long Time [DJ Premier - Original Version]

full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88BPk903jUQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88BPk903jUQ


[Intro: Samples]
"It's been a long time.."
".. Rakim, the microphone soloist"

[Verse 1]
Follow procedures, the crowd couldn't wait to see this
Nobody been this long awaited since Jesus
Who wouldn't believe this—I heard the word on the street is
I'm still one of the deepest on the mic since Adidas
They said I changed the times from the rhymes that I thought of
So I made some more to put the New World in Order
With Mathematics, put your status above the average
And help you rappers, make paragraphs with graphics
Cause new days is dawning, new ways of performing
Brainstorming, I write and watch the night turn to morning
On and on and, I got the whole world responding
Rock, I keep it hot and blow the spot without warning
The Emperor, well known for, inventing a sentence
Full of adventure, turning up the temperature
Rush with adrenaline, how long has it been again
To be in the state of mind that Rakim is in?

[Hook: Samples]
"It's been a long time.."
".. Rakim, the microphone soloist"


[Verse 2]
When I'm out propping—either hanging or shopping—
People see me, stop, and ask me when the album dropping
The wait is over, in formation like a soldier
Like I told ya, greater stronger, now that I'm older
I broke the, code of silence with overloads of talents
My only challenge, is not to explode in violence
I'm Asiatic, and blazing microphones a habit
At least once during the course of a day, it's automatic
In ghetto apparel, mind of a Egyptian Pharoah
Far from shallow, thoughts travel like an arrow
Allah's monotony, so far they can't stop me
You know, Ra want property like Muammar Gaddafi
More thoughts than Bibles, recital, taught disciples
A sawed off mic, so words scatter like a rifle
Thoughts that's trifle, I'm busting these for you
Ayo, technical difficulties is through

[Hook: Samples]
"It's been a long time.."
".. Rakim, the microphone soloist"

[Verse 3]
When I flow tonight, I show them new heights, I go to write
They know I strike with new prototypes to blow the mic
Critics and biters, don't know where my source of light is
Still leave authors and writers with arthritis
Cursed kids like the Pyramids when they found the style
First to ever let a rhyme flow down the Nile
The rebirth of hip-hop'll be dropped now
Cause the crowd didn't hear the original in a while
So be alarmed, what you bout to see is the bomb
Like 3D in 'Nam, vivid like CD-Rom
Info kept like "internet.com"
My notebook's my bond like the Holy Qu'ran
Since I came in the door, said it before
But no I ain't down with Eric B. no more
At night the open mic be inviting me to rhyme
So, yo, I'm online; it's been a long time

Dear members & readers,

In this new year of 2019 which has started quite beautifully (here in central Italy at least - where I sunbathed today in my garden!), I would like to dedicate this song to all of you valiant and righteous truthseekers - because I truly love and respect you all for helping out exposing and weed out the many deceptions infesting this otherwise magnificent planet of ours. Let this year be the one that finally knocks down the door of lies that stands between us and the sunny skies of verity. -_-

THE DOOR: https://thesocialservice1.bandcamp.com/track/the-door

THE DOOR
As the mood goes up
The anguish comes down
You're feeling like a butterfly
Soaring away
You're not the only one
Knocking on the door of lies
The lies that define our lives
You're not the only one
You're not the only one
Who's knocking on the door
You're not the only one
Keep knocking on the door - keep knocking on the door
And one fine day we will knock it down
Knocking on the door of lies
You're not the only one
Who's knocking on the door
You're not the only one
Knocking on the door of lies
