Vocals from Lauryn Hill's "Motives and Thoughts" performed at Def Poetry

(This piece of spoken word was the inspiration for the whole album)


Rotating bodies, confusion of sound
Negative imagery, holding us down
Social delusion, clearly constructed
Human condition, morals corrupted
Trapped in reaction, lawlessness, war
Dissatisfaction from bowels to core
Devil's technology, strategy for
Human mythologies, urban folklore
Sicker psychology, counterfeit cure
Wicked theology, robbing the poor
Scheme demonology mislead the pure
Strictly strategically studying war
Light shown in darkness, image exposed
Few can see through the new emperor's clothes
Lustful this hustle turn humans to hoes
When the blind lead the blind
Just more trouble and woes
It's the mind that they chose
Its designed to stay closed
Standard of jokers, court jester logic
Sick looking cosmic, from schoolyard to college
Primitive man with civilize knowledge
System collapsed and he still won't acknowledge
God is the saviour, studies behavior
Trying to fix the mixed mind that he gave ya
Stiff-necked scholars on prescription meds
Wishing their problems was all in their heads
Moral dilemma, pride at the root
Misguided from youth, heart divided from truth
Egyptians and Grecians, spiritually dead
Empirically led, by the gods in their heads
Motiv£s and Thought$
Industrial wealth
Global economy, in it for *self*
Heart full of madness, covered with kind
Pleasure designed to take over your mind
Furnished in godliness, painted in good
This tainted priesthoods got real saints misunderstood
While classes and government, set up the veil
And cultivate minds for more mythical tales
Typical Hollywood follies good girl
While vice and corruption take over the world
Motives and thoughts
Check your motives and thoughts
deep in your heart
Modern day wickedness is all you've been taught
Lied to your neighbors, so you get ahead
Modern day trickery is all you've been fed
Motives and thoughts
Check your motives and thoughts
