    Mood: Brain Fried

    “For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone / when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will / then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought / the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do / can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.”
    - Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

    “Another fresh new year is here . . .
    Another year to live!
    To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
    To love and laugh and give!

    This bright new year is given me
    To live each day with zest . . .
    To daily grow and try to be
    My highest and my best!

    I have the opportunity
    Once more to right some wrongs,
    To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
    And sing more joyful songs!”
    - William Arthur Ward

    How many years can you start off with a crazy inspirational quote?

    Muhahaha - I finished the last exam! I'm peelin out of this city (which I still love) and away from my law school friends (who I realize I also love in a way) to see my friends and family and dogs (who I love more than ever)! Just the same I'm going to see how far down I-95 I can drive with both middle fingers still pointed at my law school - If I get in an accident at least I'll go out happy.

    Mood: The Usual

    Follow me into the desert
    As thirsty as you are
    Crack a smile and cut your mouth
    And drown in alcohol
    cause down below the truth is lying
    Beneath the riverbed
    So quench yourself and drink the water
    That flows below her head

    Oh no there she goes
    Out in the sunshine the sun is mine

    I shot my love today would you cry for me
    I lost my head again would you lie for me
    I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
    I lost my head again would you cry for me

    Close your eyes and bow your head
    I need a little sympathy
    cause fear is strong and loves for everyone
    Who isnt me
    So kill your health and kill yourself
    And kill everything you love
    And if you live you can fall to pieces
    And suffer with my ghost
    Just a burden in my hand
    Just an anchor on my heart
    Just a tumor in my head
    And Im in the dark

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have god

    But I don't want to be your friend.
    I don't need another friend.
    I've got too many friends.
    If I was Eddie Vedder,
    Would you like me any better?
    That's it - I quit - I don't give a shit.

    You go ahead - as good as dead,
    Coming to a head
    You're as good as dead.'

    Jane says I've never been in love - no
    She don't know what it is
    She only knows if someone wants her
    "I only want 'em if they want me,..."
    "I only know they want me..."
    - Jane's Addiction, 'Jane Says'

    Last night was my best friend's birthday. This beautiful 21 y.o. girl wanted to take us both to bed. She said that she'd done some stuff with some guys the night before that she regretted and wanted to forget, and thought she'd do the same thing again. She talked about how she should be home with her two kids. She suggested that she could separate her mind from her vagina, and we could use it how we wanted. I decided I'd sleep alone that night.

    and it was written;
    up in the book of life.
    that man shall;
    endure forever more.

    well did you know the pen,
    is stronger than the knife.
    and they can kill ya once,
    but they can't kill ya twice.
    did you know distruction of the flesh is not the ending to life,
    fear not of the anti-christ.
    did you know that I,
    exist before the earth.
    and did you know my eyes,
    are windows to the world.
    did you know you can't go ah Zion and ah wear jerry curls,
    can't tell di boys from di girls.
    your body's just a vehicle,
    transporting your soul.
    it's what's inside the people,
    is beauty to behold.
    fear not of evil.
    everyday the flesh,
    it grow old.
    changes of the times,
    take a toll.

    (hook)x2

    me say me want, freedom,
    justice,
    equality.
    as it was written in the book of life,
    then;
    so shall it be.
    me want to big up marcus garvey and me big up hughy p.
    and me wanna know washality.
    and i meant, reality.

    i see it in the signs,
    everyday i live.
    it's clear to my mind,
    somethin' got to give.
    the system is the problem,
    but it ain't just gonna change.
    the people got to fight as one,
    to break free from the chains.
    we livin in a time,
    where whitey got us cornered.
    shackles on the brain,
    police on every corner.
    lookin for some soldiers,
    but they so hard to find.
    my elders say be patient,
    cuz things come in time.

    not fast enough because yo,
    they wanna rewrite me history.
    i made him a lot of mystery.
    cuz we too strong for them dis we.
    because it was,
    and now it is,
    and it will definetly be.
    we know,
    the days is up.
    blaze it up.
    african warrior,
    raise it up.
    push it up.
    fill up your cup.
    we had enough.
    we gonna buck.
    now is the time.
    open your mind.
    then you will find.
    it's a design.
    no matter what you do,
    no one can stop the time.

    and me want no
    kkk, no cia, no
    police brutality.
    ghetto youth and R.B.G.s,
    we ridin for liberty.
    been here,
    before the start.
    still here,
    after it's over.
    and it's written in every heart,
    of every soldier.

    My flesh, no nigga could test
    My soul is possessed by D'Evils in the form of diamonds and lexuses
    The Exorcist, got me doing skits like Homie
    You don't know me, but the whole world owe me - strip!
    Was thought to be a pleasant guy all my fucking life
    So now I'm down for whatever, ain't nothing nice
    Throughout my junior high years it was all friendly
    But now this +Higher Learning+ got the +Remy+ in me
    Liquors invaded my kidneys
    Got me ready to lick off, mama forgive me
    I can't be held accountable, D'Evils beatin me down, boo
    Got me runnin with guys, making G's, tellin lies that sound true
    Come test me, I never cower
    For the love of money, son, I'm giving lead showers
    Stop screamin, you know the demon said it's best to die
    And even if +Jehovah Witness+, bet he'll never testify, D'Evils...

    [Talib]
    Yeah.. my Lord.. yeah

    [Verse 1: Talib]
    We sell crack to our own out the back of our homes
    We smell the musk of the dusk in the crack of the dawn
    We go through episodes too like "Attack of the Clones"
    Work 'til we break our back and you hear the crack of the bone
    To get by.. just to get by
    Just to get by, just to get by
    We commute to computers
    Spirits stay mute while your egos spread rumors
    We survivalists, turned to consumers
    Just to get by.. just to get by
    Just to get by, just to get by
    Ask me why some people got to live in a trailer, cuss like a sailor
    I paint a picture with the pen like Norman Mailer
    Mi abuela raised three daughters all by herself, with no help
    I think about her struggle and I find the strength in myself
    These words, melt in my mouth
    They hot, like the jail cell in the South
    Before my nigga Core bailed me out
    To get by.. just to get by
    Just to get by, just to get by
    We do or die like Bed-Stuy through the red sky
    with the window of the red eye
    Let the lead fly, some G. Rap shit, "Livin' to Let Die"

    [Chorus: Background singers]
    This morning, I woke up
    Feeling brand new I jumped up
    Feeling my highs, and my lows
    In my soul, and my goals
    Just to stop smokin, and stop drinkin
    And I've been thinkin - I got my reasons
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)

    [Talib and background singers]
    (ba ba ba, ba da bada, ba da bada, ba da bada, ba da badahh
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)
    Just to get (by by by by by by)
    (ba ba ba, ba da bada, ba da bada, ba da bada, ba da badahh
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)
    Just to get (by by by by by by)

    [Verse 2: Talib]
    We keep it gangster say "fo shizzle", "fo sheezy" and "stayin crunk"
    its easy to "pull a breezy", "smoke trees", and "we stay drunk"
    Yo, I activism - attackin the system, the blacks and latins in prison
    Numbers of prison they victim lackin in the vision
    Shit and all they got is rappin to listen to
    I let them know we missin you, the love is unconditional
    Even when the condition is critical, when the livin is miserable
    Your position is pivotal, I ain't bullshittin you
    Now, why would I lie? Just to get by?
    Just to get by, to get fly
    The TV got us reachin for stars
    Not the ones between Venus and Mars, the ones that be readin for parts
    Some people get breast enhancements and penis enlargers
    Saturday sinners Sunday morning at the feet of the Father
    They need somethin to rely on, we get high on all types of drugs
    When, all you really need is love
    To get by.. just to get by
    Just to get by, just to get by
    Our parents sing like John Lennon, "Imagine all the people", watch
    we rock like Paul McCartney from now until the last Beatle drop

    [Chorus: Background singers]
    This morning, I woke up
    Feeling brand new and I jumped up
    Feeling my high's, and my low's
    In my soul, and my goals
    Just to stop smoking, and stop drinking
    And I've been thinking - I've got my reasons
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)

    [Talib: repeat 2X - with background singers]
    Yo yo yo yo, yo
    Some people cry,and some people try
    Just to get by, for a piece of the pie
    You love to eat and get high
    We decieve when we lie, and we keepin it fly

    Yo yo yo yo, yo
    When, the people decide, to keep a disguise
    Can't see the eyes, see the evil inside
    But there's people you find
    Strong or feeble in mind, I stay readin the signs yo yo yo yo yo
    - Talib Kweli 'Get By'

    Tryin to get ready for court - I want my damn scholarship!
