Lyrics:[Mos Def]
Against the canvas of the night
Appears a curious celestial phenomena

called Black Star, but what is it?

[Talib Kweli]
Black people unite and let's all
get down
We got to have what? We got to have that love

[Mos Def]
What is the
Black Star?
Is it the cat with the black shades, the black car?
Is it shinin from very
far, to where you are?
It is commonplace and different
Intimate and distant
Fresher
than an infant

[Talib Kweli]
Black, my family thick, like they're striped
molasses
Star, on the rise, in the eyes of the masses
Black is the color of my true love's
hair
Star's are bright, shining, hot balls of air

[Mos Def]
Black like my baby
girl's stare
Black like the veil that the muslimina wear
Black like the planet that they
fear, why they scared?
Black like the slave ship that later brought us here
Black like the
cheeks that are roadways for tears
that leave black faces well traveled with years
Black
like assassin crosshairs
Blacker than my granddaddy armchair
He never really got no time
to chill there
Cause this life is warfare, warfare

[Talib Kweli]
Deep on the
front lines, and blacks is all there
Black like the perception of who, on welfare
Black
like faces at the bottom of the well
I've been there before
To bring the light and heat it
up like "la cocina"
Make without imagine happen but maybe I'm just a dreamer
I love rockin
tracks like John Coltrane love Naema

[M] Like the student love the teacher
[T] Like
the prophet love Khadeja
[M] Like I love my baby features
[A] Like the creator love all
creatures

[Talib Kweli]
Who acknowledge truth and peace seekers
We on point
like heat seekers
Targettin the black marketing strategists
Run up on em with the
heaters
Everybody followin with no leaders
Feelin like we killin ourselves
because I
know they can't defeat us
It don't stop til we complete this, keep this fly
There's so
much to life when you just stay Black and God

[Mos Def]
Blacker than the nighttime
sky of Bed-Stuy in July
Blacker than the seed in the blackberry pie
Blacker than the
middle of my eye
Black like feh-lah man cry
Some man wan ask "Who am I?"
I simply
reply, "The U.N.I., V.E.R.S.A.L. Magnetic"
Work to respect the angelic, climb the
mountaintop
and tell it til the valley's enveloped
You're full of big chat but you nah
know me
I'm dark like the side of the moon you don't see
when the moon shine newly


[M] You know who else is a Black Star? (Who?) Me
[T] You know who else is a Black Star?
(Who?) Me
[A] You know who else is a Black Star, who we? (And we)
[A] be shinin and
shinin, when we rhymin and rhymin
We be shinin and shinin, when we rhymin and rhymin


[Mos Def]
Now everybody hop on the one, the sounds of the two
It's the third eye
vision, five side dimension
The 8th Light, is gonna shine bright tonight
It's the third
eye vision, five side dimension

[T] You know the light
[M] Go from the dark

[T] The other way is ass-backwards
[M] It's absurd
[T] Make you wanna crow like a
blackbird
[M] That's right
[T] You livin from your first day to your last night

[T] Sometimes you show your ass like
[M] Lint on your clothes
[T] When you froze in

[A] THE BLACK LIGHT
[M] Dead that
[T] Before you get your head wrapped
[M] Like
Badu
[T] We see through your voodoo
[T] Just like Eve's Bayou, you dealin with that black
magic
[M] Try to civilize you
[T] Not walk on by you
[M] Like civil-(lies do get you
black listed) it'll
[T] Be unlucky for you like a black cat
[M] A panther

[T] Revolution is the answer
[M] That's what we need
[T] Greed plague my people like the
cancer
[M] True indeed

[Mos Def]
Now black people unite, and let's ALL GET
DOWN
Now everybody hop on the one, the sounds of the two
It's the third eye vision, five
side dimension
The 8th Light, is gonna shine bright tonight
Everybody hop on the one, the
sounds of the two
It's the third eye vision, five side dimension
The 8th Light, is gonna
shine bright tonight
It's the third eye vision, five side dimension
Equalin up to eight,
light shine bright
