Guilty All The Same Lyrics

Guilty All The Same

 

 

Tell us all again

What you think we should be

What the answers are

What it is we can't see

Tell us all again

How to do what you say

How to fall in line

How there's no other way

But oh / We all know

 

YOU'RE GUILTY ALL THE SAME

TOO SICK TO BE ASHAMED

YOU WANT TO POINT YOUR FINGER

BUT THERE'S NO ONE ELSE TO BLAME

YOU'RE GUILTY ALL THE SAME

 

Show us all again

That our hands are unclean

That we're unprepared

That you have what we need

Show us all again

'Cause we cannot be saved

'Cause the end is near

Now there's no other way

And oh / You will know

 

YOU'RE GUILTY ALL THE SAME

TOO SICK TO BE ASHAMED

YOU WANT TO POINT YOUR FINGER

BUT THERE'S NO ONE ELSE TO BLAME

YOU'RE GUILTY ALL THE SAME

GUILTY ALL THE SAME

 

Can y'all explain

What kind of land is this

When a man has plans of being rich

But the bosses plans are wealthy

Dirty money scheme

A clean split is nonsense

It's insane

Even corporate hands is filthy

They talk team and take the paper route

All they think about is bank accounts

Assets and realty

At anybody’s expense

No shame with a clear conscience

No regrets and guilt free

They claim that ain't the way that they built me

The smoke screen before the flame

Knowin’ as soon as the dough or the deal peak

They say it's time for things to change

Rearrange like good product rebuilt cheap

Anything if it's more to gain

Drained, manipulated like artists, it's real deep

Until no more remains

But I'm still me

Like authentic hip-hop and rock

Til’ pop and radio and record companies killed me

Try to force me to stray and obey

And got the gall to say how real can real be

You feel me, we'll see

That green could be to blame

Or greedy for the fame

TV or a name

The media, the game

To me you're all the same

You're guilty

Since the major lyrics sites out there must be deaf, I listened to Rakim's verse a few times and here are the correct lyrics though there's still one line I'm 50/50 on.

 

can ya’ll explain what kind of land is this

when a man has plans of being rich

but the bosses' plans is wealthy

dirty money scheme, a clean split

nonsense the same, even corporate hands is filthy

talk team and take the paper route

all they think about is bank accounts

assets and realty

anybody's expense, no shame with a clear conscience

no regrets and guilt free

they claim that ain't the way that they built me

smoke screen before the flame

know as soon as the dough or the deal peak

say it's time for things to change

rearrange like good product rebuilt cheap

anything if it's more to gain

drained, manipulated like artists, it's real deep

until no more remains, but I'm still me

like authentic hip-hop and rock, to pop and radio

and record companies killed me

try to force me to stray and obey

they got the gall to say how real can real be

you feel me, you will see

the green will be to blame

greedy for the fame, TV or a name, media, the game

to me you're all the same

you're guilty

 

EDIT: corrected based on Astat's post below but kept subtle differences in how I heard it vs "official" lyrics.

:lol: @ lyrics websites. Thank you, knew there was a bunch of shit wrong in there. Sounds right as far as I can tell now.

Missed it, the official lyrics were edited into the news post on LPA. Here's Rakim's verse according to those, although I think he may have changed a couple words here and there from what was written down:
