LAURYN HILL lyrics : "I Find It Hard To Say (Rebel)"

[Lauryn Hill Talking]

...I've written it about the whole Amadou Diallo situation...


...It was such a hot time in the city at that point, I was afraid that if I
put the record out, people would Misunderstand what I meant by "Rebel" and

they just take it to the streets...

[One and only verse]


Ok, yeah, alright...
I find it hard to say, that everything is alright

Don't look at me that way, like everything is alright
Cuz my own eyes can see, through all your false pretenses
But what you fail to see, is all the consequences

You think our lives are cheap, and easy to be wasted
As history repeats, so foul you can taste it
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it

His life so incomplete, and nothing can replace it
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it
Your lives so incomplete, and nothing can replace it

Fret not thyself I say, against these laws of man
Cuz like the Bible says, His blood is on their hands
And what I gotta say, and what I gotta say, is rebel

While today is still today, choose well
And what I gotta say, is rebel, it can't go down this way
Choose well, choose well, choose well...

...choose well, choose well, choose well
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it
Your lives are so incomplete, and nothing, and no one, can replace it

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
And what I gotta say, and what I gotta say
And what I gotta say, and what I gotta say

And what I gotta say, and what I gotta say
And what I gotta say, and what I gotta say
Is rebel... rebel, rebel, rebel, rebel, rebel, rebel

Rebel, rebel, rebel, rebel, rebel
Repent, the day is far too spent, rebel... rebel!
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up...

Wake up and rebel
We must destroy in order to rebuild
Wake up, you might as well

Oh are you... oh are you satisfied
Oh are you satisfied
Rebel... ohhh rebel

Why don't you rebel, why don't you rebel?
Why don't you rebel?
I'm fading myself down now...
