Nas & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley – Patience Lyrics

Here we are
Here we are

This one right here is for the people

Sabali, sabali, sabali yonkote
Sabali, sabali, sabali kiye
Ni kêra môgô
Sabali, sabali, sabali yonkote
(Sabali, sabali, sabali kiye) Hey yo D, let’s go all the way in on this one
Ni kêra môgô

Some of the smartest dummies
Can’t read the language of Egyptian mummies
An’ a fly go a moon
And can’t find food for the starving tummies
Pay no mind to the youths
‘Cause it’s not like the future depends on it
But save the animals in the zoo
‘Cause the chimpanzee dem a make big money

This is how the media pillages
On the TV the picture is savages in villages
And the scientist still can’t explain the pyramids, huh
Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids
Stereotyping the image of the images
And this is what the image is

You buy a khaki pants
And all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
An’ a thief of the gold and thief of the scrolls
And even the buried bones
Some of the worst paparazzis I’ve ever seen and I ever known
Put the worst on display so the world can see
And that’s all they will ever show

So the ones in the West will never move East
And feel like they could be at home
Get tricked by the beast
But a where dem go flee when the monster is fully grown?
Solomonic lineage weh dem still can’t defeat
And them coulda never clone
My spiritual DNA that print in my soul
And I will forever own, Lord

(Sabali, sabali, sabali, yonkontê) Yeah, sabali, thats patience
That’s what the old folks told me
(Sabali, sabali, sabali, kiye) Can you get with that?
(Ni kêra môgô)

(Sabali, sabali, sabali, yonkontê) Discovering the world before this world
A world buried in time
(Sabali, sabali, sabali, kiye) Uncover with rhymes, it gets no realer
(Ni kêra môgô)

Are we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
Can you read thoughts, can you read palms?
Huh, can you predict the future, can you see storms coming?

The earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
No, the earth is round if the shape change again
Everybody woulda start laugh
The average man can’t prove of most of the things
That he chooses to speak of
And still won’t research
And find out the root of the truth that you speak of

Scholars teach in Universities
And claim that they’re smart and cunning
Tell them find a cure when we sneeze
And that’s when their nose start running
And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wet mud

Can you read signs, can you read stars?
Can you make peace, can you fight war?
Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars
Huh, can you survive, against all odds, now?

(Sabali, sabali, sabali, yonkontê) It’s crazy
(Sabali, sabali, sabali, kiye) When you feed people the truth
You don’t know how they’re gonna react
(Ni kêra môgô)

(Sabali, sabali, sabali, yonkontê) You’re scared of wrong doers
People that just ignorant, they scared of the truth
(Sabali, sabali, sabali, kiye) We patient
(Ni kêra môgô) For now

Who wrote the Bible, who wrote the Qur’an?
And was it a lightning storm
That gave birth to the Earth
And then dinosaurs were born? (Damn)
Who made up words, who made up numbers?
And what kind of spell is mankind under?
Everything on the planet we preserve and can it
Microwave it and try it

No matter what, we’ll survive it
What’s hue? What’s man? What’s human?
Anything along the land we consuming
Eatin’, deletin’, ruin
Trying to get paper (What?)
Gotta have land, gotta have acres
So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson
Watch ni- play the game like the Lakers

In a world full of 52 fakers
Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers
You superstitious? Throw salt over your shoulders
Make a wish for the day ’cause
Like somebody got a doll of me
Stickin’ needles in my arteries, but I can’t feel it
Sometimes it’s like part of me
But I got a real big spirit

I’m fearless, I’m fearless
Don’t you try and grab hold of my soul
It’s like a military soldier since seven years old
I held real dead bodies in my arms
Felt their body turn cold, oh
Why we born in the first place
If this is how we gotta go? (Damn)

(Sabali, sabali, sabali yonkote) Yeah
(Sabali, sabali, sabali kiye) Yeah, yeah, what?
(Ni kêra môgô)
(Sabali, sabali, sabali yonkote)
Goes to all the wisdom and knowledge seekers of the world
(Sabali, sabali, sabali kiye) Sabali, wisdom
(Ni kêra môgô) Yeah
