Read the book and the lines, and literature in between
And gotta be educated when going against the grain

from Lupe Fiasco – Glory Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Don’t swallow what is fed to you by the media. Become widely read so that you can form your own opinions and conclusions about major events which occur.

You need to be well-informed to challenge the ‘truths’ that are peddled.

The “book” can also be interpreted as a reference towards whichever holy book holds sway for a particular individual. He suggests that you must be spiritually strong to resist the temptations of the world.
