It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said
I can't take back the words I never said

I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip?
9/11, Building 7, did they really pull it?

Uh, and a bunch of other cover ups
Your child's future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts them, wait, here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up

Keep you at the bottom, but tease you with the upper crust
You get it, then they move it, so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV, all you see's a bunch of what-the-fucks
Dude is dating so-and-so, blabbering 'bout such and such

And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news
And these the same people supposedly telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit

That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either
I'ma part of the problem, my problem is I'm peaceful
And I believe in the people
Yeah

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said

Now we can say it ain't our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better, then we probably deserve it
Jihad is not a holy war, where's that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam, and you are not observant

And you are not a Muslim
Israel don't take my side, 'cause look how far you've pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the kush went
Complain about the liquor store, but what you drinking liquor for?

Complain about the gloom, but when'd you pick a broom up?
Just listening to Pac ain't gon' make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon' make it halt
If you don't become an actor, you'll never be a factor

Pills with million side effects, take 'em when the pain's felt
Wash them down with diet soda, killin' off your brain cells
Crooked banks around the world would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss payment they can take your home away

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said, never said
I can't take back the words I never said

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I'm scared of even telling you

Sometimes I'm like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I'm locked inside a cell in me, I know that there's a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said

    I cannot adequately put my feelings into words. Which isn't me to trivialise this serious, deadly issue - I literally have no words.

    1. You're not alone. Here we are in 2012 watching this unfold. Others were able to eloquently blog about this and all I could think was...didn't this already happen?

      This song came out in 2011, and here we are in 2012.

  2. My thoughts on Art is that Art should move me, provoke me, inspire and uplift me. Art (in its many forms) should exhort us and on sundry occasions rebuke us. Art should be the mirror by which we see ourselves and the avenue by which we cleanse ourselves.

    Now I don’t listen to rap, but I can certainly see how the (Art) in it, serves to facilitate the gospel of it. My humble opinion notwithstanding, these lyrics...moved me.

    1. The "Lasers" album overall was an epic disappointment because TPTB didn't allow Lupe to be his usual self.

      That being said, this song was concerned his most honest effort on the entire album.

  3. Very sad to read and equally sad to look at the situation in Gaza.They've been fighting for ages. Im hoping that there will be a long lasting solution to this crisis.

    Same story, different day. I was at Columbia U this afternoon for some research and there was a large (and loud) pro-Israel demonstration going on, complete with Israeli flags being distributed.

    I couldn't be this eloquent if I tried.
