From the second Jazzmatazz album "The New Reality" (1995) ... Even though all Guru's Jazzmatazz albums are great, this one is by far the best one, imo.

- lyrics:

You know sometimes
I be lookin' through the darkness
Tryin' to find the light
Tryin' to do what's right with all my might

Lookin' through the darkness
(Yeah, I'm lookin', lookin, at you)
Lookin, through the darkness
(I see you lookin' at me, whatcha wanna, wanna do?)

Lookin' through the darkness
(Here we go, take a walk with me)
(Lookin' through the darkness)
(Check it out now, now, now, now, now, now)

Now as I peer through the window of gloom and every day living
And all the hardships one faces, to make you give in
I dig more intensely, finding greater strength
A lot of heads is empty, I've got a greater rank

Than MC's, not aware of situations
That'll force one to understand, true stipulations
Thou shalt not bite, thou shalt not front
Fake it if you want but for the battles I've come 'cause I'm

Lookin' through the darkness
(Yeah, I'm lookin' out, lookin' at you)
Lookin' through the darkness
(Lookin' at me, my style is free, do you wanna be?)

For me this rap life is real life, I don't have to create
Some false image to make the crowd get hyped
Too many children get the wrong message, from clowns that walk around
Hopelessly lost, thinkin' that they're the boss

They're in a daze, while dope MC's don't get the front page
Me, I try to channel my rage
As I travel through the city regularly
Turning the anger and frustration, straight into energy

Yes, you will remember me as the brother who cared
To dare to step up with his soul bared
But never fearing 'cause I've got instructions
From Him, to go and fight the corruption so I'm

Lookin' through the darkness
(I've got to look through it, try to, try to find the light)
Lookin' through the darkness
(Uhh, maintainin')

My granddaddy always told me to keep the light shining
So as my mic illuminates, you can feel the state that I'm in
Thoroughly immersed in a verse, way more than hardcore
I endure 'cause in myself, I'm secure

Delivering syllables and selections with profound perfection
Comin' back like the resurrection
In this session, I'm professin', that those who don't
Hear and understand, never loved me and so I planned

To take a stand, as one who is firmly focused
Plus I'm mad worthy with words
I rock from East New York
All the way to the suburbs

The lightkeeper, knowledge seeker
I switch the stress that's on my mind
Into the voice that rocks your speaker
And I get deeper than the ocean when I'm

Lookin' through the darkness
(Yeah, I'm lookin' through it)
Lookin' through the darkness
(Ain't nothing to it but to do it)
(Gotta freak it, now let me freak it, check it out)

Lookin' through the darkness
(All my life)
(Lookin' through the darkness)
(Yeah, ohh yeah)

Yo, I'm so ill, I go ill when beats with jazz
Fill my need to express myself like the blues I can't lose
Weak MC's, they're seekin' refuge
From my barrage there's no rescue

Then I look through the madness, finding sanity
I'm crazy alert, I never swim in vanity
I do this rap stuff every year
Aiyyo, peace to my fam, especially my man Premier as I'm

Lookin' through the darkness
(Yeah, lookin' out to the wilderness)
Lookin' through the darkness
(The jungle, uhh, everybody's got to rumble)
Lookin' through the darkness
(Lookin' through the darkness)

Lookin' through the darkness
Lookin' through the darkness
Lookin' through the darkness
(Got to find my way, doin' my own thing)

Lookin through the darkness
(Walkin' through the darkness)
Got to find a way
Got to get, got to get it on
(Can you see the light?)
Got to get, got to get, got to get it on
(Peace aight?)

Lookin' through the darkness
Lookin' through the darkness

Got to get, got to get, I've got to get it on
Lookin' through the darkness
Got to get, got to get, I've got to get it on
Got to get, got to get, I've got to get it on
