We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley) – Patience (Sabali) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This could be taken that though people generally get taller as they get older, they still think like children. However, it’s a bit bigger than that — Damian is referring to the evolution of man and how we have generally become physically taller as time goes on, but perhaps haven’t really become smarter (at least, we keep making the same mistakes)
