Love In A Time Of War

lyrics

[Verse 1] - MuRli
Is it bad that I contemplate an exit to focus on myself instead of serving the masses?
Is it sad that I ask to be respected when I'm busy at work yet few ever get the message?
Is it fair to deprecate my music, undervalue my statements for instruments I ain't using?
Is it here that you're expected to lose it, spazz on social media looking ever so stupid?
Since the records don't sell no more
It's like the industry's only got air in store
Coz that's all I get when I got to these shows
And the bands try so hard to redefine boredom
Hip hop, I'm giving you nothing but tough love
How gon' grow your audience on popcorn
MCs, please move the crowd
Regardless of being above or underground

[God Knows]
Because the bloggers got a gun, I got my hands in the air yelling please don't shoot us Zimbabwean lion in this jungle and there's poachers everywhere I'm roaring please don't don't hunt us
Making records nowadays is like pulling teeth
Don't be that dentist
Let me be honest, it's not about blunt it's not about spliff,
The only thing smoking inside no e-cigarettes
I don't wanna brag same reason why Tyler, The Creator and Keeth is a chief
The braggadocio is self ownership
Me and vanity don't have a relationship
And as pop culture moves on to censorship
And as the guilt trip luggage turns into baggage
With money in the industry harder to salvage
I wonder will you download my e-press package
With another tab open searching for courses, no 5 Mics no Sources
We’re just underground hype, horses for courses
I'm not on a role, I'm on the road!
Trying to make dreams into streams, cheers into screams,
shows into cream, as easy as it seams,
Another level another devil
I go to church to keep my head level

[MuRli]
Most careers in the game are now made in China
So you triple double check when it's time to sign on
With both sides of the same coin striking
Only thing left in the middle is a hyphen 
Majority wouldn't believe it
That's how I started embracing all my minorities
Squeezing on my belly for a living
By now my hunger got a split personality
Either way it all plays to my advantage like when the ref say play on even after you foul me
Even after the honey moon period
You wake up to find me red hot. Period! 
Breaking so many hearts to be a star better be Sirius
Unless you only got two senses you're feeling us
Giving our blood, sweat, tears and bone marrow
On our March through that gate that's ever so narrow
No track-star but I'm in this for the long run
Ethiopian records on my dashboard 
And till I'm all flat, bet I can't stop 
You can keep waving the flag my brake broke
Well We gotta find that balance?
There's too many man on stage these days
We need some more girls up there parallel that track from BBK

[Chorus]
Love in the time of war
Love in the time of war
Love in the time of war
Can you mirror heaven when all hell breaks loose?
Love in the time of war
Love in the time of war
Love in the time of war
Can you mirror heaven when all hell breaks loose?


[Verse 2] - God Knows]
I don't have American Idols, not a based God,
6 God, not even a fella in the Wu he's not U-God
Oh Lord! I'm sorry but Jamar is not The Lord
You can drill it to me 16 billion times
You can be slim but you still not Jesus
I've been doing this since early nah I'm serious
I've been doing this sincerely
I don't have to be my bro to tell you that I'm early
Always thought the older I got
the more that I knew but I quickly learned even at 20 I was still 5 times 4
I am a Don of 4/4, four to the floor before I fall to the floor
Create a legacy, love all mankind, free my people before I fall to the floor
Raw to core, do it for the Father not for show
Wanna spit a couple raps get a couple braps
Share a few laughs and I'm chuffed
That's just me, no matter how many times you invite me, I don't want to play candy crush
Now back to the bars, do it for the love not the buzz,
But let's just keep it real still gotta get paid cuz
I've been conflicted bro, I just wanted people to like me more
Word to Yeezy, been doing this since folks said for shizzle my nizzle
I've been on the grizzle since little
And I've been more fire since Lethal the bizzle and H to the Izzo
I've got mixed emotions but they weren't mixed my Ali, MynameisjOhn actually!
