Lupe Fiasco - Beautiful Lasers/Two Ways [Live Version]

[Chorus]
There’s only two ways..out…of here,
ones through the door, the other's through…Me

[Lupe Fiasco]
Sometimes livin' in a word like this,
it's pretty hard not to go insane,
not pretty if you don’t comply,
pretty easy if you don’t complain,
stand there like you don’t feel pain,
no tears in the face of defeat,
pretend to the end that you don’t feel change,
don’t admit it that your faith is weak,
don’t say that you feel like dying,
life’s hard that it feels like diamonds,
go home, shit's far too gone,
much too late to even feel like trying,
can't understand what I’m saying,
can't figure out what I’m implying,
if you feel you don’t want to be alive,
you feel just how I am...

I’m on the dark side,
and you can't come find me,
how? when its light all around you,
yeah but it's dark on the inside,
no win when it's me against me,
one of us ain't gonna survive,
my heart been broke for a while,
yours has been the one keeping me alive

[Chorus]

This world's such a fucked up place,
my mind's in such a fucked up state
Everything down here sucks,
maybe what's up there is great,
We all gotta go one day,
I just wanna cut to the chase,

I wanna stop these nightmares
I just wanna touch your face

I wanna stop these nightmares
I just wanna touch your face...

[Chorus]

props to DP16 for writing down a big part of the lyrics!

  7. i think what the chorus line is

    There’s only two ways..out…of here,
    And If you too late you'll be trapped here forever...
    There’s only two ways..out…of here,
    Ones through the door, the others through…Me

  8. Chorus?
    There’s only two ways out of here,
    You wait too late you'll be trapped here forever.
    There’s only two ways out of here,
    Ones through the door, the others through me.

  10. The chorus is sung my Big Baby Bam, the drummer, at the live show. Just saw it last night, absolutely amazing. And Big Baby Bam has an amazing voice. Obviously dont who sings it on the album, but i dont know why it would be Santos instead of him bc he kills it.

  11. Its reminiscent of Robert Frost, the whole suicidal innuendos wrapped in a blanket of prose. Lupe is a true lyricist - just wish I had the chance to meet him in person

  14. "pretend to the end that you don’t feel change"

    should be

    "pretend to the end that you don’t fear change"

  15. @sierra.. The most disrespectfull thing u can say about lupe is compare him to god with ur comment " a true god" ... Lupe is a muslim, and as a muslim he believes in one god, and we as muslims are his servant, and there is no one greater than god himself, for he is the creator of all things

    ReplyDelete
  16. @sierra is correct...you should note ''god'' and not "God"
