I Been There

This song is by KRS-One and appears on the album Keep Right (2004).

(Chorus: repeat 2X)
I talk how I talk when I talk 'cause I been there
I walk how I walk when I walk 'cause I been there
On your own sleepin' in the park yeah I been there
How we really gonna survive? Let us begin there

(KRS-One)
I'm talkin' to the little you but, there is a bigger you
The bigger you is spiritual, little you that is physical
KRS is givin' you, somethin' more than I get with you
I'm hittin you, splittin you, rippin you down with me
You busted that metaphysical rap, at the pinnacle I'm at
I'm down here just to deal witchu cats
I never bleep you, I just remind you that they don't need you
They gonna keep you for as long as they can eat you
But that mic you speak through goes from here to Mogadishu
And how you represent US is the issue
I'm not here to diss you, or dismiss you
But at any moment we can be hit with missiles

(KRS-One)
How many MC's must get dissed
How many young men must get frisked
How much ice can really go on one wrist
How many shots get fired at a target and just miss
We gonna live like this?
I walk the same path that Ma$e do
But he went in the church, I stayed out to face you
The difference between us is not just man to man
But in fact it's fan to fan
People that buy KRS-One goin' places
People that buy your shit, they catchin cases
My people eat, your people cheat
Such is the words you speak and you reap
You can pop that shit if you like
But people that buy KRS-One, they lookin' for the light
Like NYCE, Jada, Lizzard, B.C.
Harold, Symone, Server yo man see me
