      Lyrics for Talib Kweli - "Before He Walked (feat. Nelly & Abby Dobson)"

      Like a medicine in times of war, helps me get over
      The sweetest sounds I ever heard, my joy, my heart, my music
      Like a medicine in times of war, helps me get over
      The sweetest sounds I ever heard, my joy, my life, my music

      I'm from a small city, but I have big dreams
      Had some good ideas, but I had better schemes
      I thought the hustle way for me was etched in stones
      Until my pun to dime and name etched in stone
      My daughter's growing up, my son on his way
      They closing in on me, I feel like every day
      Music saves me, soothing like the navy
      But a lifetime of scars only sixteen bars
      So I took the vibe with me using my life
      Yep, I propose the main music my wife
      If ever need to call a nigga music's my night
      And if I need to bring the girls together music's my dice
      If I degraded and I haven't even cried to
      I watch purpose prophesize about going through
      Music ain't the knowledge itself
      And I'm the knowledge itself, then I acknowledge your wealth

      Like a medicine in times of war, helps me get over
      The sweetest sounds I ever heard, my joy, my heart, my music
      Like a medicine in times of war, helps me get over
      The sweetest sounds I ever heard, my joy, my life, my music

      Music a part of me, I'm a bully
      Beating up the track with brutal lines
      The truth inside of me, rappers hit the booth and they lie to me
      I'm using the inspiration that they provide to me
      I'm redefining the space, you can call me the new geometry
      A picture of you, papa, when I google monogamy
      Now all the people who go irresponsibly
      Thinking your album is trash is not the root of economy
      So you're expecting the conscious and introspect of use
      Each of lyrical vestibule, let me tell you what's best for you
      My music gives you a message true or respect is due
      But music is emotion, that's lost for me intellectual
      A tree in form of a far is never heard
      Amongst the sparrows and the robbers and even the ghetto birds
      You download it for free but what I create the same
      Of course you're nothing but a pair in making, trust me

      Like a medicine in times of war, helps me get over
      The sweetest sounds I ever heard, my joy, my heart, my music
      Like a medicine in times of war, helps me get over
      The sweetest sounds I ever heard, my joy, my life, my music

      I was born on the afterbeat, I'm like ron for Johnson
      When you reach the crossroads me and the devil have to meet
      It's all the same thing as clever Lauryn when they saw it
      Lauryn went, looking for God and 'Clef kept tourin'
      Willing to the same songs but we hear them different
      Serenade the death like we got a fear of living
      Having the sounds on stage cause the spirit rising
      Stop the devilish ways where clever displays the lyricism
      The songs are a natural resource of actual street stories
      Attract the police forces
      Slay to the rhythm the masses that rip off us

      And he could run before he walked
