The Biggest Lie

Murs and Slug [of Atmosphere]

Come on tell me ’bout your problems

The problem with me is that I think too much
relying on this pen and this ink too much
and I do too much – I’m always on tour
accumulating points, till I forgot about the score
And the problem with you is you don’t think it all
your brains deadweight so you sink and you fall
you drink and you smoke till your motivation’s gone
and you know this is true so you hate this song…

The problem with me is co-dependency
so afraid of the day that you won’t remember me
knee deep in anxiousness, needy like an infant
escapism, beats, rhymes, alcohol & women
the problem with you – you let yourself stop believing
and now you’re afraid of your own thoughts and feelings
forgot how to share what I love most about you…
lost your voice – now no choice but to doubt you

Now the problem with the world? …the lack of respect
for our earth, for our children – for the future we neglect
for the morals, for the values, for the god that we select
millions die everyday without a cause to affect
The problem with the revolution? …it’s never gonna happen
through these marches, through this music,
through these cats rappin’
through these communists, these socialists or any other faction
armchair activist – all talk no action…

The problem with the people that I stay surrounded with?
…they all wanna replace faith with a psychologist
bring the evolution, whether thinkin it’s pollution
when they’re swallowing the balance, and they’re drinking the solutions
The problem with the people that I won’t stand next to?
…they don’t hear the songs that we sing for the rescue
the keys of life – the basslines of sadness
so people that don’t have – reach out and grab it

The problem with hiphop? … sh** nothing at all
it’s an artform that ranges and it changes it evolves
it’s not always for the better, but be patient with it ya’ll
for our time will come and the wicked will fall
The problem with this song, is it’s not long enough to say
how messed up it is that we living this way
nothing is alright …but everything is okay
so we plan for tomorrow but we live for today

The problem with sex is self respect – calibration
the orgasm services your validation…
and the problem with love, is that it lives in a book now
the problem with drugs is that they’re too f****** good now
the problem with logic is there’s too many loopholes
and the problem with truth is that it’s usually brutal
the problem is I can’t trust most of what I see
so f*** it! …all the problems of life must be me!

Mama said she gets it all the way
…Biggest lie she ever told

Papa said hed bring us brighter days
…Biggest lie he ever told

When they said this world was ours
Felt like we got body and soul
they think they had a cure for pain
…Biggest lie they ever told

  1. murs got lyrics for days

  2. That’s so unique and moving. reminds me of one movie: The Pursuit of Happyness, have you seen it? In that movie, Will Smith as Christopher Gardner says: “It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?”

  3. pure genius! Love Murs’ new album…he comes at it hard!!

  4. I Love Murs! He is the truth. Looking forward to the Murray’s Revenge DVD

  5. Murs is sick!

    Amina: Loved that film, Will Smith and his kid were brilliant. Nice quote, I would say happiness is found in the pursuit itself, as long as you’re pursuit is noble.
