Nas – Systematic

Yo I think it exists just because like a pit eats its pups eats its own litter up
Time-time, time-time, time-time, time-time, time-time
Close your eyes, cover your ears, do not listen
The system’s fucked, it’s corrupt
Try to feel what I’m sayin’
Place two cups of cranberry in the skillet
Systematic, uh
Art, music, letters and numbers
Hold your breath for fifteen seconds
Try to feel what I’m sayin’
[Chorus: Nas]
Nothing stays in a steady state It overheats and melts

Should make you feel is my new expression
Keep stirrin’, sip it, it’s art like Keith Haring
I’m a vessel, I’m humble
Systematic
And Nike sweatsuits and Gucci links
Hold your breath for fifteen seconds
Meetin’ start ups, I invest if I want to

[Post-Chorus: Nas]
Time is now
Let it cook for eight minutes, but you ain’t finished
Let it simmer to the cranberry pop a little
Try to feel what I’m sayin’
I wanted minks, and a Benz to listen to Michael
In the shadows, pick up the shadow
No place and origin, no beginnin’ cycle
DJ Shadow, a rose and thrown blows
I’m sippin’ on drinks
Mathematics is God’s language, it’s in my blood

It gets in your blood, you start to feel what I’m feelin’
[Chorus: Nas]
Close your eyes, cover your ears, do not listen
[Post-Chorus: Nas]
Methodical corporate culture, straight out the projects
Cherish the present and work for tomorrow
[Verse 2: Nas]
Lack of respect, get you to fall where you stood
And Grand Puba, Maxwell to get cash while
What’s the ingredients to the realest?
Should make you feel is my new expression
Let’s occupy our streets
Systematic
Can’t see me, but Nas movin’ the fastest
Should make you feel is my new expression
[Verse 1: Nas]
Systematic

No backup check, put cash in my palms and we good
I’m a 3D movie, no need of glasses

I wish I was a arms dealer to sale illegal arms in the hood
Wooh!
The system will defeat itself
A half a cup of water, add some Henny
Try to feel what I’m sayin’
Close your eyes, cover your ears, do not listen
Close your eyes, cover your ears, do not listen
Remember the past?
The world first
Hold your breath for fifteen seconds
Time-time is now
Hold your breath for fifteen seconds
[Outro]
Should make you feel is my new expression
I’m a 3D movie, no need of glasses
I’m like a Russian mob figure, I’m mad low
It’s crazy to think in the eighties
Don’t listen, just try to feel what I’m feelin’
As for its own survival, it’s genocidal
It only feeds itself, the system

Transformin’ global markets with all of my partners
