LaCue, Sylvan - Televised Lyrics




All for money, all for power, all for purpose
Find your hour what's the outcome of brother Malcom
I think I don' lost mine
Lost my patience I can't take it, why so fake
Watch Satan lead us night into temptation
Pray yourself to the most high
Do you want a revolution? Do you want a revolution?
Do you want a revolution? Do you wanna...

Wait to live your life, let me know
Ain't no telling where you're going
My uncle stayed to die back against the ropes
My daddy left the crib back in '94
Momma pulled me to the side, "Boy, you know there's hope"
Break the cycle, baby, let your wings grow
Don't wanna end up 40 on the corner store
Lotto tickets, politicking selling dope
Wonder where we all are going...

All for money, all for power, all for purpose
Find your hour what's the outcome of brother Malcom
I think I don' lost mine
Lost my patience I can't take it, why so fake
Watch Satan lead us night into temptation
Pray yourself to the most high
Do you want a revolution? Do you want a revolution?
Do you want a revolution? Do you wanna...

And I wonder where a black man lies in the world
Talking about comment I'm a comment disregarded through malice
Screaming silence for a seat upon the table overlooking over all the valence
Maybe I was thinking black diamonds and pearls
Back to the originator, kings queens generated
Commet middle ring well demonstraded, penetraded never be disintegrated
Brought us to a land where freedom would ring
Maybe on the other side, all I ear is bullets singing lullabies
This is for my niggas who won't come alive
Sick of all my mother's cries
Promises of morning never would bring, but I don't need no.48
Just find me in a kingdom full of love, separated from the ignorant of us
Tell me who are we to trust, When there's government officials overseeing our demise
Triger happy police give a fuck if we oblige
I don't know the number, tell me just how many died
Over miscomunication of a color, I'm alive
Scared of walking alone and see a Donald sticker
With a stick yelling "nigga I'm a fucker around and catch a homicide"
Systematic being proven other side of genocide
Murder, murder, murder, how will we survive?

All for money, all for power, all for purpose
Find your hour what's the outcome of brother Malcom
I think I don' lost mine
Lost my patience I can't take it, why so fake
Watch Satan lead us night into temptation
Pray yourself to the most high
Do you want a revolution? Do you want a revolution?
Do you want a revolution? Do you wanna...

You will not be able to stay at home brother
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out
You will not be able to lose your cellphone
Scared you skip out for beer during commercials
Because the revolution will not be televised
Because the revolution... will not be televised
The revolution won't be televised [x8]

Now tell me why they hate my skin, momma (woo)
They wanna kill us 'till the end, momma (woo)
You need change fuck a friend, momma (woo)
I just don't know where to begin, momma
Or maybe I do and I'm still on my own
Ways of my destruction, lately I battle inner corruption
I like my yak with 21 savage and pockets of cabbage, no interruptions, some pussy and peace of mind can rewind me back to assumptions
Shit, I ain't here to talk about Trump
Redundancy cumbers me, rather humbling the hearts of those who worry on the future
Hope these minutes of music provide some comfort for you to
Use beyond what was given
I'm a black man in a white world
White-lashed t'I'll we bite back
Then is Jim Crow when the hype swirls
But the call might come along on my way home
But I'm scared straight, shit switch in a hearthbeat
How much will it cost me to be civilized when I'm criminalized
Ironic when it's minimal times
Racism individualized
Luminize in this critical times

Because the revolution will not be televised
The revolution won't be televised [x8]

[Rayana Jay:]
The revolution won't be televised, the revolution won't be televised, the revolution won't
The revolution won't be televised, the revolution won't be televised, the revolution won't
The revolution won't be televised, the revolution won't be...

You're one of the few artist that actually make me love the fact im still doing music, in an industry that saturates my view of what musics means. Fuck those views bro, you deserve so much more.

  18. a wa

    Sylvan, I know it's too soon to say but I really hope you blow up. Just don't ever lose your essence man. What you produce cannot be replicated or imitated. This is what the culture needs right now, please stay unique.

  36. Half-Blood Prince

    I'm so mad that you are being slept on. Bro, find someone that has connections with Nas, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, someone! Get signed! If that's not possible, get your tracks on something portable and get your stalking game on. Find them by yourself and ask them politely to listen to your work. YOU WILL GET SIGNED. Like Ab-Soul said, persistence is the key. Make 2017 your year. You're talented, best of luck.

    Alex Marrufo

    Jupiter on Android You obviously arent reading it correctly cause im saying yes that is what happens when you SIGN A CONTRACT (not mad just trying to help you understand) you do know what a contract is correct? When you sign one theres usually things you have to agree on and hes not in a position where he could negotiate these things yet. Therefore if he were to sign one right now he probably would have to change up alot of what hes doing which is probably why hes staying independent. As i said hes already turned down alot of labels im sure and even walked away from VMG. His actions show he aint tryna fuck with nobody telling him what to do with his craft

    Half-Blood Prince

    Alex Marrufo
    Could you please help me understand something? You just informed us what happens when people sign contracts with a clause attached. If he were to sign a contract today, do you think the downsides you mentioned would affect him?

    Alex Marrufo

    Jupiter on Android i donk think they would effect him cause i dont think hed sign a contract right now to begin with.

    Half-Blood Prince

    Alex Marrufo
    You don't believe it would affect him because it's your belief that he won't sign one now, but if he does sign one it still wouldn't affect him, got it.

    BLAZINGSTR8DANK420
