Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Can't defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
Right
Verse 2
You spend a buck in the 80's, whatcha you get is a preacher
Forgivin' this torture of the system that brought cha
I'm on a mission and you got that right
Addin' fuel to the fire, punch to the fight
Verse 3
Many have forgotten what we came here for
Never knew or had a clue so you're on the floor
Just growin', not knowin' about your past
Now you're lookin' pretty stupid while you're shakin' your ass
Verse 4
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Can't defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
Right
Verse 5
Some people fear me when I talk this way
Some come near me, some run away
Some people take heed to every word I say
Some wanna build a posse, some stay away
Verse 6
Some people think that we plan to fail
Wonder why we go under or we go to jail
Some ask us why we act the way we act
Without lookin' how long they kept us back
Verse 7
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Can't defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
Right
Verse 8
Yes, you if I bore you, I won't ignore you
I'm sayin' things that they say I'm not supposed to
Give you pride that you may not find
If you're blind about your past then I'll point behind
Verse 9
Kings, queens, warriors, lovers
People, proud sisters and brothers
Their biggest fear, suckers get tears
When we can top their best idea
Verse 10
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Can't defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
Right
Verse 11
Mind revolution, our solution
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Corners don't sell it, no, you can't buy it
Defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
Right
Verse 12
Our solution, mind revolution
Can't sell it, no, you can't buy it in a potion
You lie about the life that you wanted to try
Tellin' me about a head you decided to fly
Verse 13
Another brother with the same woes that you face
But you shot with the same hands, you fall from grace
Every brother should be every brother's keeper
But you shot with your left while your right was on your beeper
Verse 14
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Can't defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
Right
Verse 15
As the world turns, it's a terrible waste
To see the stupid look stuck on your face
Time bomb alarm for the world, just try it
Known to all zones as the one man riot
Verse 16
I'm on a mission to set you straight
Children it's not too late
Explain to the world when it's plain to see
To be what the world doesn't want us to be
Verse 17
Mind over matter, mouth in motion
Can't defy, 'cause I'll never be quiet
Let's start this
