The clip Get By with Talib Kweli from Block Party (2005) Work till we break our back and you hear the crack of the bone To get by, just to get by Just to get by, just to get by We asking why some people got to live in a trailer 'Cause like a sailor I paint a picture with the pen like Norman Mi abuela raised three daughters all by herself, with no help I think about her struggle and I find the strength in myself These words melt in my mouth They hot like the jail cell in the South Before my nigga Core Bailed me out To get by, just to get by Just to get by, just to get by We do or die like Bed-Stuy through the red sky Out the window of the red eye Let the lead fly on some G Rap shit This morning I woke up Feeling brand new and I jumped up Feeling my highs, and my lows In my soul, and my goals And tried to stop smoking and stop drinking And I've been thinking I've got my reasons Just to get by, just to get by Just to get by, just to get by Just to get by, just to get by Tell them, Kweli We keep it gangster, say "for shizzle, " "for sheezy" and "staying crunk" It's easy to pull a breezy, smoke trees, and we stay drunk Yo, our activism attacking the system, the blacks and Latins in prison Numbers have risen They reach us like inner vision Shit and all they got is rapping to listen to Let them know we missing you Love is unconditional Even when the condition is critical When the living is miserable Your position is pivotal, I ain't bullshitting you Now, why would I lie? Try to get by, just to get by We can't fly See, the TV got us reaching for stars Not the ones between Venus and Mars, the ones that be reading for parts People get breast enhancements and penis enlargements Saturday sinners Sunday morning at the feet of the Father They need something to rely on We get high on all types of drug All you really need is love to get by Just to get by, just to get by Just to get by, just to get by Like John Lennon "Imagine all the people" Watch me rock like Paul McCartney from now until the last Beatle drop
