Lupe Fiasco - Stronger Lyrics




And they say...

Opium to the ceiling
All for the love of plugs, squealing 'ugh', healing
No more Timberland turf
You're too soft for this, award-winning awkwardness
You walking off into the office with
In the rims with friends and like state trials and Paypals
In nondescript homes in Arizona
In sub-divided neighbourhoods, with floors made of solid wood
In roofs of clay tiles sits a couple million dollars
Said I tried but the old me blew it
Exactly how you knew I'd do it
All my brothers, I would love to paint 'em Jewish
Reinfiltrate the movement and assassinate the music
Exaggerate the ass and face then masturbate to it
The constituency brilliant but the candidates are stupid
I'm too rude to ask for nudes
But way too ruthless not to pursue it...

(Maybe)
Maybe you feel me when I...
Feel me when I say (Feel me when I say)
Whatever don't kill me
Gets me through the day (Gets me through the day)

Chorus to the (w) horses, made her body porous
Absorbing up the pork, made 'em enormous
Fear of rape, made 'em informant
Fully shroomed in the motel room waiting to torment
Never trust a dope fiend with your hopes and dreams
Let 'em play in museums with the dead bodies and broken things
What happens when the sugar barons meet the coca kings
And they beam it into space
Seem to be in place
At the parent teacher conference
With hallucinations screaming in her face
The cleaning lady crazy
She say she got a demon in the safe
But its eating through the back
And soon be leaving through the gates
The holla'er shouts, "Who's bright enough to pay a toddler
That watch a ghoulish oxycontin gobbler on Hanukkah?"
Maybe a Phoenix-based multi-million dollar launderer
Who fucked the cartels so bad, she attended court on the monitor

(Maybe)
Maybe you feel me when I...
Feel me when I say (Feel me when I say)
Whatever don't kill me
Gets me through the day (Gets me through the day)

Bad trippin' through the tenderloin
Slimmer that a slot to enter coins to let a nigga join
A figure skater like Michelle Kwan
Aluminum illuminated to a hail bomb ice
Then hold onto it like the Elron device
Then pass the audition
To the poor hands sided in maelstrom's position
Street sales in comparison pale to the Scottsdale bail bonds commission
It's like trappin' out the pawn shop
Gettin' close to the magic like the wrappin' on the wand box
Third layer from the wave
And grant absurd last prayers and first favours from the grave
To crack the pipes like icy nights and turn mayors into slaves
Politics bring fevers
To punish dealers
Adjudicate the Johnsons and stop the ring leaders
The Geese Howards and King Ghidorahs
Cook E in the family tree for steam fevers

(Maybe)
Maybe you feel me when I...
Feel me when I say (Feel me when I say)
Whatever don't kill me
Gets me through the day (Gets me through the day)

  5. Dia Camp

    Oh damn that's how you doing it!
    Thanks...

  6. 40 KEVINS

    He wrote this on acid 😂

    Whatsitmatter Whydoyoucare

    No. Lupe doesn’t do any drugs. He doesn’t even drink alcohol. Sorry not sorry 😐

  7. Serge B

    This song sounds like a montage to The Eagles-"Hotel California". it just sounds like Lupe had a similar experience like they did, metaphorically. Also if you're smart, you can tell that Lupe talks about an establishment within the government and how they're corrupted. That's just my interpretation though.

  8. Azel Anders

    Lupe would be one of the hottest rappers, if he was just as talented but stupid.

  11. khalfan junim

  12. Craig Haden

    he is perceiving that we are all brainwashed

  13. Craig Haden

    hes's exposing the jews

  14. Craig Haden

    don' t sell out to the establishment

  15. Max Ukaigwe

    What happens when the sugar barons meet the cocoa kings?

    eth hodl

    My favorite line. Birth of the sugar industry that caused the rapid rise of obesity due to paid off studys. During the 1960 the sugar industry paid of 3 harvard researchers to push for studies that portrayed fat and cholesterol as the reason for heart disease and seizures. Since then there was a huge push for trans fat(man made dehydrogenated fats), high fructose corn syrup in everything, and the high carb style of the typical american diet. Since then obesity has risen through the roof every decade. Lupe spilling hugh bombs in one fucking line wtf.

  17. Miska Autiorinne

    This whole album. Man I can't describe it. It's too good. This song is one of its most important tracks

  18. Cory Addison

    I was bobbing my head to this beat the first couple months listening to this album (specifically this song) until I realized what Lupe was speaking on

    It's heavy

  19. Zcumbag

    Every time you feel the need to point how "smart" Lupe's music is, it makes it less "smart" because you're telling people that they should be working to find something.

    Ultimate L

    People SHOULD be working for something. It doesnt negate Lupe's intelligence on this music. Downplaying it makes it less smart.

    Zcumbag

    @Ultimate L Nuance is a term that exists for a reason, those who aren't already searching for it don't need it.

    Ultimate L

    @Zcumbag cant agree. You might need something desperately that you arent looking for. It just elongates the trip.

    Zcumbag

    @Ultimate L I guess what i'm trying to say, is that it's better to either explain something or not say anything at all. Just indicating to their being a deeper message without any guidance just seems really pretentious to me.

  20. Frank Bermudez

    I never really got into lupe, recognized his skill and talent but this album, Critics slept the fuck on this shit last year. Art n poetry the way it designed. Great is never simplistic. Their should always be layers to peel

  21. GhettoAhki

    Never trust a dope fien with your hopes and dreams

  22. Somalian Ismail

    Mashallah

  23. Punkin Pie

    🔥🔥🔥🔥

  24. Anthony Marcus

    Thanks for another COOL LU gave a cheat code for playing

  25. istudy asl

    Streaming your, our truth on the block, all day, every day-- thank you Lu.
    With love,
    from Phoenix

  26. Kevin Alban

    This album is 🔥

  27. AZCardinals 4 Life

    I just finished watching Ozark and Narcos so I’m really into this track right now. Gives haunting vibes out.

  28. dakidjahsiah

    Carter 5 is bubblegum rap. this takes a few listens to digest thats why it gets no hype in this microwave generation. Lupe belonged in the 90's golden era. he would've been more appreciated.

    Trust The Shooters

    Lol that's how Real Hip Hop feels with the Underground starting to get solidified with so many power house Inde Labels with Artist ownership to some degree.

    Only a matter of time until they all unite to rebrand mainstream hip pop as some form of new age Brainwashing. Only a matter of time. Horseshoe Gang been shitting on them for a minute.

    Sabrina Siggers

    I agree

    GhettoAhki

    I would like to agree with you but rappers like AZ were underrated because he didn't just go with the flow. Don't underestimate corporate intentions

    Amy J Smith

    We shift the paradigm tho. ✊✊ suffocate the wack music and industry.

    onlyrog5

    Not necessarily. Kool keith is super underappreciated and many others as well.

  29. jamesderrod30

    Wtf Do Lupe be talking about!! The way he rap is fascinating.

    Imiko

    Right!!! Really makes me eager to then learn everything he is talking about, dude is ridiculous.

  30. Adam Kaplan

    exaggerate the ass and face than masturbate to it, the constituency brilliant but the candidates are stupid...

  31. Narobi Gaines

    Got that food & liquor feel

    M c

    Yes! But combined With the cool, tetsuo & youth

  32. Anthony Thomas

    Can someone PLEASE make an instrumental to this???

    Alana Wrisley

    Just sat on the toilet. About to start pushing. Started tapping my feet. ....umm.. that means you should start recording

    Anthony Thomas

    Alana Wrisley I'm confused as to what that even means lmao

    Malum

    They're being retarded.

    Miska Autiorinne

    It will come, eventually.

    PurpleAlligatorFlim

    Miska Autiorinne nope. Never

  33. Malcolm Xodus

    Vibe of this album is so smooth

  34. MRTUPAC 28

    REAL HIP HOP!!!!

  35. the legend

    I live in Phoenix. Yea the cartels really aren’t nothing to play with. Love this song and the whole album honestly. Lupe is highly underrated. Top 5 for me easily.

  36. Brandon Distinct

    This song is Powerful. 👑🔥🌊

    Pickachu's Zone

    You could say it's Strong (er)

    ZUULT

    so powerful

  37. Lorenzo Moises

    Resisting the urge to skip to mural jr

    Jacob Parker

    Lorenzo Moises brooo that was my thought process throughout the entire album

    Rorschach's Journal

    For real. Same boat.

  38. EBT Network

    Ayy uh...is it possible to be sexually attracted to a beat? Cause...

    JaDarius McNally

    Hell yes..The man transcended beyond mortals and has become a rap god🙏🙏

    VLM123

    Yes. :)

  39. Scooby MiKE

    Feel like I'm in school when I listen to Lupe

    Hard Work

    What hip hop was meant to be. He needs a new genre just for him.

    Hussein Hammoud

    The best school ever? Lol ... I’d love for there to be an elective course just deciphering Lupes lyrics

  40. zbeeb0

    The instrumental is so perfect for the subject matter...

  41. Misael Yisrael

    Oh so dope

  42. Topi Korhonen

    Hell yes.
