One Mic Remix Lyrics

by Nas

(feat. Brainpower)

[Nas & (Brainpower): speaking]
turn my headphones up, nothing gon' stop me now
(uhu, Nas ... Brainpower)
i'm here baby, we here!
it's yo' world ..

[Brainpower: gradually getting louder]
Dit is voor al m'n peeps en fans
En hersenders die verder kijken dan de pers
De kudde meningsvorming, de herder dit verse
Hoe hevtiger de stress, des te verder de levensles -
Zich ontwikkeld, des te verder het besef
Wat moet je zonder liefde beginnen, misgeliefde beminnend
In 't diepste van binnen, met omin liefde verzinnen
Vertaal me tranen in leven, in lyrics zwevend
Woorden banen zich snelwegen in de geest, met lanen en stegen
Binnen in haalt m'n hart z'n weg, naar m'n vingers
Kan het niet echter verzinnen
Hand op m'n pen, en m'n tekst kan beginnen
Sirenes wennend zwaar in m'n brain
Van jaren lang een vreemde eend, tot een maand op nummer één
En flashbacks van m'n jongenskamer, jaren alleen
De dood van geliefde, [gun shot] en viel m'n tranen in een
Je breekt daar, wat wou je nou
Als je verder gaat en denkt.. na
Hou jij van jouw, als je nergens staat
Een weg met lege praat, ga niet voor geld of de bedels
Ben me bewust van deze verse, dus benut elke regel
Je hoort de Brain omdat je puur wou
Voor iedereen, van Nederland tot Kaap-Verdië, Aruba, Bonera, Curacao
Suriname, Turkije, [...], Marokko em Vlaanderen
Afrika tot Aziatische wijken, Zuid-Amerika, Europa
USA en wereldwijd, m'n wereld blijft in één vibe
Naast de Brain in 1 Mic!

[Nas & (Brainpower): whispering again]
All I need is one mic.. (kom, kijk, en luister)
All I need is one mic.. (1, mic)
All I need is one mic.. (kom, kijk, en luister) all I need
All I need is one mic.. (1 mic) yeah, uhu

[Nas: gradually getting louder]
All I need is one cub, one page, and one pen
One prayer - tell God forgive me for one sin
Matter fact maybe more than one, look back
at all the hatred against me, touch alla them
Jesus died at age 33, there's thirty-three (shots)
from (twin glocks) there's sixteen apiece, that's thirty-two
Which means, one of my duns was holdin 17
Twenty-seven hit your crew, six went into you
Everybody gotta die sometime; hope your funeral
never get caught up, pain go through the innocent
Nothin is fair, brothers roll up, (shootin) from wheelchairs
My heart is racin, tastin revenge in the air
I let it all slide for too many years, too many times
Now I'm strapped with a couple of (macs), too many (nines)
If y'all people really wit me get busy load up the (semis)
Do more than just hold it explode the (clip) until you empty
There's nothin in our way - they bust, we bust, they rust, we rust
(Led) flyin, feel it? I feel it in my gut
THAT WE TAKE THESE DUDES TO WAR, LIE 'EM DOWN
CAUSE WE STRONGER NOW MY PEOPLE THE TIME IS NOW!!

[Nas & (Brainpower): whispering again]
All I need is one mic.. (kom, kijk, en luister)
All I need is one mic.. (1, mic)
All I need is one mic.. (kom, kijk, en luister) all I need
All I need is one mic.. (1 mic) yeah, uhu

[Brainpower: gradually getting louder]
Alleen in boeken verstraten
Lees je boeken, luister je blaten
Hoor politici weer oefenloos praten
Voel je verlaten, en moet dan wel wraken
Het goede verlaten, plaatsmakend voor woede -
Door haten en voel je gelaten
Wie gooid er roet in zaken
Wie blijft er vloeken en praten
Wie heeft het goed en wie flaat het
Wie is bedroefd en wie schaad het
Wie hoest er - wie gaapt er
Wie broest er - wie slaapt er
Wie doet er zoveel namaak
Wie bloed er, wie haperd
Zoveel vragen in een wereld
Banger en enger, en ben met verlangen verstrengeld
Op de klank van merengue
En voor speciale personen voel ik diepe liefde, die prachtig is
MC ik niet voor niets, verdieper dan in een alchemist
FUCK een diss! pak is, ik rock op shit
Ik rock een diss, veel te lang ingeslikt
To m'n ziel naar adem snakkend is
Alleen vrede in m'n geest
Op stage met die ene mic
Wreed en hight, tekeer gaand als een vreselijk beest
Schreeuw et uit! verschil moet er zijn
Tyfus voor non-believers
Laat je niks wijs maken, peeps, en ga voor wat je lief is
En je hoeft niet te doen alsof, die shit is jezelf
En zoek maar waar je wilt, echt waar maar het zit in jezelf!

[Nas & (Brainpower): whispering again]
All I need is one mic.. (kom, kijk, en luister)
All I need is one mic.. (1, mic)
All I need is one mic.. (kom, kijk, en luister) all I need
All I need is one mic.. (1 mic)

[starting loud this time, getting quieter]
ALL I NEED IS ONE LIFE, ONE TRY, ONE BREATH I'M ONE MAN
WHAT I STAND FOR SPEAKS FOR ITSELF, THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND
Or wanna see me on top, too egotistical
Talkin all that slick stuff, my name is political
Wonder what my secrets is, enemies'll move on you
only if they know, what your weakness is I have none
Too late; I'm mad done, I'm blastin cause I'm a cool brother
Thought I wouldn't have that ass done? Fooled you brothers
What you call a infinite brawl, eternal souls clashin
War gets deep, some beef is everlastin
Complete with thick scars, brothers knifin each other
up in prison yards, drama, where does it start?
You know the block was ill as a youngster
Every night it was like a, (cop) would get killed body found in the dumpster
For real a hustler, purchased my Range, people throwin dirt on my name
Jealous cause fiends got they work and complain
Women left me cause they thought I was finished
Shoulda knew she wasn't true she came to me when her man caught a sentence
Diamonds are blindin, I never make the same mistakes
Movin with a change of pace, lighter load, see now the king is straight
Swellin my melon cause none of these brothers real
Heard he was, tellin police, how can a kingpin squeal?
This is crazy, I'm on the right track I'm finally found
You need some soul searchin, the time is now

[Nas: whispering again]
All I need is one mic.. yeah, yeah yeah yeah
All I need is one mic.. that's all I ever needed in this world, cash
All I need is one mic.. the cars, the jewelry
All I need is one mic.. to spread my voice to the whole world

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
