I loved you before I knew that you existed
It really isn’t anybody’s business
Not asking for permission or a witness
It honestly doesn’t make any difference
Living in this insane mess
There’s only one person that can make me make sense
I’ve got troubles and my own fears
But as long as you’re alive, I’m not alone here
My mirror, when I’m right near you
Your guiding light shines to see my life clearer
You’re so woven inside my spirit
Even when you’re not around I feel you
Lord knows they don’t come no realer
My soul road dog my healer
The only reason I believe in me
I’m trying to be what you seem to me

When the highs get low and joys turn woes
I’ll be close forever and a day
They can’t take that away
When you make your mistakes, my heat is a place
Where you’re safe I never would betray
They can’t take that away
And what you made mine is true
Lifetime full of treasures, I’ll never repay
They can’t take that away

I love you and there’s nothing you can do about it
I love you right through all your human problems
I might’ve got excited at you and shouted
But you never let me down when it truly counted
Nothing could ever break the bond
Whatever page you’re on
Celebrate or mourn, babies born or parents gone
No matter how crazy the storm, you won’t face it alone
The best part of me is drawn to you
Me and anything I own belong to you
I treasure everything important to you
Any secret I ever had I show them to you
I owe you nothing but the whole truth
I wouldn’t want to meet the me that doesn’t know you
The only reason I believe in me
I’m trying to be what you seem to see

When the highs get low and joys turn woes
I’ll be close forever and a day
They can’t take that away
When you make your mistakes, my heat is a place
Where you’re safe I never would betray
They can’t take that away
And what you made mine is true
Lifetime full of treasures, I’ll never repay
They can’t take that away

[Amir Sulaiman:]
These are wounds, not scars
It will only be a scar when it stops bleeding, stops hurting
You can forget about scars
But you cannot forget about wounds
Everyone meets the injured with sympathy or disgust
Do you need a tissue?
No, I need stiches

○ Listen to “Brother Ali” Songs

● “Uncle Sam Goddamn ”

[ Quotable ]
All must bow to the fat and lazy
The fuck you, obey me, and why do they hate me?
Only two generations away
From the world’s most despicable slavery trade
Pioneered so many ways to degrade a human being
That it can’t be changed to this day
Legacy so ingrained in the way that we think;
We no longer need chains to be slaves
Lord it’s a shameful display
The overseers even got raped along the way
Because the children can’t escape from the pain

● “Forest Whitiker ”

[ Quotable ]
Ayo, dependin’ on the day, and dependin’ on what I ate
I’m anywhere from twenty to thirty-five pounds overweight
I got red eyes and one of em’s lazy
And they both squint when the sun shines so I look crazy
I’m albino man, I know I’m pink and pale
And I’m hairy as hell, everywhere but fingernails

● “Breakin’ Dawn ”

[ Quotable ]
See good Lord, I’ve been waitin so long
For y’all to come out here and take me in the home
The world’s so cold with no place to belong
They said “come on in boy, sing your song”
He stepped inside and to his surprise
It was so damn fly, he can’t believe his eyes
Ate and he drank and he felt satisfied
‘Til he sat by the window and he glanced out-side
Loved ones out workin
Eyes got full and his heart start hurtin
Cause them folk been singin for years
But ain’t any one of them set foot up in here
