The Remedy
            Common Featuring Q-Tip

Yo, we all got different things that we got to deal with. We always are 
to put the blame on something else rather than sometimes looking at 
ourselves, recognizing a lot of the stuff that happens, sometimes it has to do 
with other things...but if we look within ourselves, we could prevent a lot of 
this nonsense sometimes, y'know. It's about 
relating back to the essence y'know what I'm sayin', where it all stems from. 
I'm-a do my 
thing over this drum, like a native tongue. 
Verse one Q-Tip: 
Do what you will, if you feel that your steeze is real 
complicated with the skills over reel to reel 
brown skin is what i feel, my mind and body's appeal 
is to the no-frill mills, who hear the beats to chill 
constantly, I'm hearing Black Americans just sneering 
Looking for a leader who can fill us up with ether 
Hitting us up with great emotional chat 
about the fact 
that the black 
is constantly held back 
Like 50 tracks back in a relay race 
and the white team's ahead 
so let's keep up the pace 
And I be needing something that could feed my logical taste 
At the end of the race is there a paradise place? 
Yo, we can't get involved in what the next man is doing 
Material gain we put too much in persuing 
"Yo duke, I need this dope so we can step to this party" 
But we can all mardi grati 
Minus that shit in our body 
"What that got to do with that" 
'Cause kid that's the essence, 
your physical presence 
embodies every lesson 
You can't run the Rolls Royce if the engine is busted. 
Can't even life the knife to cut the mustard. 
What we need to do first 
Now listen to this verse 
Let's concentrate on our spiritual plate. 
Recognize your existence in this vast blue space 
From a tiny cloud of blood 
To the human beings with taste, sight, touch, smell 
and sound 
Let's deem it profound! 
And prioritize this cause it was Allah's wish 
"Allah? I'm God" 
"No I ddon't believe that. That's a mystery" 
"If God is so good why does shit be happening to me?" 
There's divinity within 
because we come from the divine 
A force that's not seen But yo we feel it every time 
When the wind blows, and the earth turns, 
and the rain drops, and the babies cry
and the birds fly, and the grounds quake, 
and the stars gleam, yo 
So many things are evidence of its existence 
What we need to do is link it with persistence,
hear me out, yo
Once we recognize that, we can move ahead 
Native Tongues, Common Sense yo he's Hip-Hop bred... 
From the spiritual world my former life has developed 
First person I lost close to me was Stella 
Some of my mellows 
Lost their mothers and their brothers 
For them I feel empathy 
But I ain't pouring out fuckin' Hennessee
I pour my heart out when I see Dot out on the deck 
Knowing two weeks ago he slapped-boxed with death 
I hear of niggas dying in the wind and on the news 
But when it's somebody you know it hits you 
and emotions get bruised 
I ain't been in your shoes, 
I won't judge you for knocking 
Because the spirit of the ghetto says "You Gotta!" 
They snatch you again from rock flippin' 
Give back into the neighborhood, you better start kickin' 
Stickin' stores 
On the strip 
I'm tired of Arabs giving me my change back 
Devil bomb my yesterday 
My tomorrow he never gave back 
I lay back, looking at the ceiling 
Wondering what can I do 
So my homie won't have to be dealing 
Not cause you serving and I'm rapping I'm better 
Just different pieces to the puzzle of black life 
That we gotta put together, to better ourselves 
cause families we gotta raise 
No matter how long the money 
Shorter become the days 
Men become like women 
and no difference in the season 
If you got popped five times 
You breathing for a reason 
Let's put this five, ten year come-up plan in progression 
Before we count our papers 
Count our blessings
