Lupe Fiasco - Words I Never Said Lyrics




[Skylar Grey:]
It's so loud Inside my head
With words that I should've said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said
I can't take back the words I never said

[Lupe Fiasco:]
I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip
9/11 building 7 did they really pull it
Uh, and a bunch of other cover-ups
Your child's future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the upper-crust
You get it then they move it so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV all you see's a bunch of "what the fucks"
Dude is dating so and so blabbering 'bout such and such
And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit
That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either
I'mma part of the problem, my problem is I'm peaceful
And I believe in the people.

[Skylar Grey:]
It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should've said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said

[Lupe Fiasco:]
Now you can say it ain't our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better then we probably deserve it
Jihad is not holy war, where's that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam!
And you are not observant
And you are not a Muslim
Israel don't take my side 'cause look how far you've pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the Kush went
Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
Complain about the gloom but when'd you pick a broom up?
Just listening to Pac ain't gon' make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon' make it halt
If you don't become an actor you'll never be a factor
Pills with million side effects
Take em when the pain's felt
Wash them down with Diet soda!
Killing off your brain cells
Crooked banks around the World
Would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss a payment
They can take your home away!

[Skylar Grey:]
It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should've said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said, never said
I can't take back the words I never said

[Lupe Fiasco:]
I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion that's why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I'm scared of even telling you
Sometimes I'm like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I'm locked inside a cell in me, I know that there's a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through

[Skylar Grey:]
It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said

  6. Ronald Savage

    It’s sad when a artists as talented as Lupe gets censored by the media because he’s trying to open people’s eyes. Stay woke people, Lupe definitely is 100% right. If I told you what I found out about the government or 9/11 I’d be in Federal custody if they knew how much I know.

  7. Awadh L Mohammed

    4:07 greatest verse of all time!

  8. Charlie Bwr

  43. Jorge Sanchez

    "Turn on the tv and all you see is a bunch wtfs. Dude is dating and blabering about such and such .Not just jersey shore but the news." Relevant because everyone on the news just has opinions and trying to gossip about politicians they don't like.

  44. Joshua Sewell

    THE TRUTH!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH LUPE FIASCO!!!!!!! 📚 🗒 📚 📝

  53. Michael098

    i miss 2010-11 days

  54. Juan Venegas

    Well, we the people were constitutionally granted the power to KNOW about what we choose to, bug I think the government isn't the one pushing out heads away from all the REAL problems, it's OURSELVES! THE ONES IN OURSELVES THAT HAVE CONSPIRED WITH THE GOVERNMENT. We need to CHOOSE CAREFULLY who we listen to!
    I mean, yeah, it's their fault too for keeping them secrets from us, but if we KEEP TURNING OUR HEADS THE WAY THEY WANT US TO AND WE KEEP LISTENING TO THEM WHENEVER THEY SAY THINGS LIKE, "Oh, you know, the economy's FINE! You don't need to worry, leave if up to the ones in charge to solve the problems. It's WHY we voted for them after all!"
    What we need to start CARING ABOUT is what we LISTEN TO AND WHO WE LISTEN TO! We're the TARGETS, NOT THEM! I hope I made a little sense as to what my point of view is on this whole problem with crooked leaders we vote for.

  55. Almighty Games

    Nostalgia ❤️ 2019

  56. Le Kruff

    The words of this song spoke everything in the future..2019..... wonder what 2029 holds....

  57. Green Thumb

    18 million views? Why don’t I believe that... Nice job YouTube.

  58. cp24eva

    2019 here and this song could never get old. Rings louder every single year.

  59. mhmd 16

    God bless muslims

    Coffee Fresh

    Mohammed was a pedophile

    Moon MS

    @Coffee Fresh The biggest pedophile is Trump and you’re just as bad if you actually support him. Move along. The truth is right in front of you, if you don’t want to listen, why bother be on here.

  60. Kimberly Duarte

    2019 almost 2020 and this is exactly what the fuck is happening rn

  61. Akani John

    It's sad how today's music is about sipping lean,money and cars
    Nothing fundamental

  62. Akani John

    The more i grow up
    The more i understand this song

  63. Talha Hussain

    *realest song ever*

  64. Sticky Fingers

    Republican, Democrat, Libertarian whatever It doesn't matter. Everyone needs to wake the fuck up and realize that politicians don't give a shit about you or anyone else, only themselves. It's sad honestly, our ancestors fought and lost their lives to give us a free country free of the corrupt British government, and here we are, allowing that same corruption into our country.

    Sticky Fingers

    @jonny s Yeah it was, just a long time ago

  65. Zeldirc Campbell

    Real life said

  66. Ludacridiculous Alex

    Now that I think about it, Obama is a terrible president but Trump is actually better than the media makes him out to be.

  67. Who ?

    3:26 gave me chills

  68. Salvador Sahagun

    Lupe and Nipsey where the closest thing our generation had to a Tupac.

  70. Baller Life

    Murda is not Islam, but someone has to defend their Islam and God understands that!!

  71. Mbatshi JOSEPHTHEFLASH

    The song is nice

  72. thenumber

    This song has aged well.

  73. Rita Hernandez

    Still listening to him LEGEND !!!

  74. Æyad Sumّood

    first time listening to this, YT not doing their job right .. Lupe is way underrated! This track should be heard more .. Ppl don't want the truth. Sheeps of the Media outlets agenda

  75. Simshine95

    Lupe is the definition of a free thinker, the stuff he is able to lash out without taking sides because he sides with the truth is admirable

    Ne0mega

    Prophet of Truth, always, Lupe.

  76. zee A

    I was hearing to much garage rap on the radio so i came hear to cleanse my ears

  77. Nate Trinity

    So true !

  78. Undercity Shade

    This song reminds me of changes. Lyrics so real they can bring a grown man to tears.

  79. Łukasz

  80. Logan Johnson

    "Thats why i didnt vote for him. Next one either. Im a part of the problem. My problem is im peaceful, and I believe in the people" 👌👌👌

  81. Wyatt Russell

    Everybody still thinks the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit - 2019

  83. cmcmillon

  84. cmcmillon

  85. cmcmillon

    best song ever

  86. Alex

    I need Lupe to address what's going on in America today, but I don't know that I could sing about what is effectively a war on innocent children at the border.

  87. Ice Lunatic

    Strong message 💪 💯👍

  88. Subtrill_Official

    2019. i was here

  89. Real Lifer

    This generation would love to sit in front of that tv or a phone and be hypnotized with BS

  90. adam cleare

    My Favorite Lupe Fiasco Song, the Truth is worth it.

  91. John Deines

    “I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence” damn..

  92. O'gee ._

    At 1:02 the number 114 represents the date (1\14) when the Arab revolution started in Tunisia with the Jasmine revolution. This was the day the Tunisian people decided to speak up and say no to the dictatorship, getting rid of the silence. Lupe is a declared Muslim so it all makes sense.
