Lesson One (Tablo's Word) Lyrics

Lesson One (Tablo's Word) - Epik High (에픽하이)

Written by:J-Win/에픽하이

Yo people attention

 

Education knowledge

 

I got nothing to say to ma teachers

 

Genius is not the answer

To all questions

 

It's the question to all answers

 

But does it exist

 

Yo c'mon listen

 

Do we learn math to

Add the dead's sum

Subtract the weak ones

Count cash for great ones

We multiply but divide the nation

Break down like fractions

Send our sons away to die

Do we learn science in

Defiance of faith

To make alliance with fakes

For an appliance's sake

We ask for the real but make

Artificial intelligence

To make smarter kills of

Other's presidents

Why do we learn history

To fix stories for the guilty

Make angels look filthy

And the devils look milky

If the victory writes the books

Then what have we won

Are we battleships for authorship

A rich man's guns

Do we learn to read

To receive the lies

To deceive the eyes

From seeing between the lines

We use words to bring

Forth sticks and stones

To sing psalms of hate

That fill the streets with bones

Unseen or heard a king with words

Tablo

 

Lyrical assassin

 

Make me vision the better living

 

Unseen or heard a king with words

 

Tablo

 

Lyrical assassin

 

Make me vision I'm the truth

Is our day job

More than self slavery

When we're locked watching

The clock impatiently

We sweat for the dollar bills

The checks and the credit cards

But that dollar kills

Breaks the necks of our inner hearts

If the police are role models

For the righteous

Why does justice depend on

Guns and nightsticks

Mr. officer don't punish me with brutality

These streets got me singing

Marvin Gay off key

Why do we need church to

Get to heaven's gates

Can holy water quench

The thirst of those whose fates

Started in the wrong place

With the wrong face

Can the poor and the hungry

Survive solely on grace

Can this rap game ever bring changes

When MCs would rather floss a cross than be saviors

Will I last in this game be blasted with shame

Will I stand for my name and never blaspheme for fame

 

Unseen or heard a king with words

Tablo

 

Lyrical assassin

 

Make me vision the better living

 

Unseen or heard a king with words

 

Tablo

 

Lyrical assassin

 

Make me vision I'm the truth
