Listen, stream, buy, mp3 download and read the lyrics to the "Be Like Water" song by RZA.
RZA just dropped a new song, "Be Like Water," inspired by ESPN's upcoming 30 for 30 documentary, Be Water, about the late martial arts icon, Bruce Lee.
It's no secret that Lee and his films were instrumental to the creation of the Wu Tang Clan, so it's only right that the hip hop group's de facto leader would pay tribute to the fighting legend through music.
“Bruce Lee’s teachings extended beyond physical martial arts,” RZA said in a press release for the song.
“He was full of philosophy and mindfulness.
His quote ‘Be Water my friend’ is profound and multi-tiered in definition.
It inspires the idea that in adapting to life situations, sometimes we have to flow smoothly as a stream, while other times we have to crash like a Tsunami.” The title of the song and the documentary comes from one of Lee's most famous quotes: “Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water.
Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow or it can crash.
Be water, my friend.” RZA also released some accompanying visuals to "Be Like Water" as a tribute to Lee.
Be Water premieres on ESPN on Sunday, June 7th at 9:00pm EST.
RZA - Be Like Water Lyrics.
[Intro: Bruce Lee] Empty your mind, be formless.
Shapeless, like water [Verse 1] Boundless, yet when it's surrounded, it appears to be bounded It takes the shape of that which bounded it Then imprints it's old shape and [?] and move on Leaving a new landscape behind it So we're reminded Be like water, don't be bonded Sometimes we gotta dig deep into our inner selves Our own hurt to find it Intercept the fist, cheek and [?] [?] even blow Even though that it sounds like a lethal blow We should know [?] to simplify the best version of yourself In light then, synthesize all days into one We all one, under the same sun So why you gotta fight against him and he gotta fight against Dun? Be like water, water crosses over every border From the mud of the Yangtze River to the sand beaches of Florida My mental caught up Turn my brain storm into a Range storm You know if it's uninspired then, here's the new Wu-Tang song [Refrain] (Be like water) (Be like water) [Interlude] [?] begins to realise what it is he actually has to offer There was more to Bruce Lee than they'd originally imagined Bruce comes on to the screen, he ignites it His very presence on screen is a protest [Refrain] (Be like water) (Be like water) [Verse 2] Adaptations to situations Before evaporating back to vapor Then return back through precipriation Cascading and pervading, existing as a mist The one-inch punch is being drawn from the formless I use that same Chi style to perform this To understand the fury inside of Bruce Lee's first Be like water (Water, water, water) [Outro] Be like water Be like water Be like water (Water, water, water) Be Like Water
