Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart

Yo, I walk across this, world that's deceptive
Beats are perfected, the ghetto's infested
With more destruction, my vocal eruption
Was speakin' bout corruption with no introduction
Approach me with caution cause I spark losses
Militant the rap arson, marchin'
Leavin' n****z stiff like I'm starchin', departin'
Hollywood Sambas and jokes just like Martin
I'm the type of n**** that belongs in a ward
With a mic and a cord, to hold your head with a sword
Some proclaim lames, callin' they-selves bold
They shall be flawed, when the claps applaud
If this a point of life, one I can't afford
Then I have to get shiest and I deal in fraud
Now back to the topic of, the rap philosopher
With more drama than a soap opera
Who stops the propaganda, the hot block commander
Puttin' a halt to all the backtalk and slander
Warn every challenger, about the silencer
Muzzle in your mouth for the days that's on the calendar

Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart

I'm from the valley of the heavy heads, watch the ghetto pre-medical
Undergrads, and steady red faces of stone
Eyes are crevices, life like a double negative
Philly criminal, I rhyme my, dirt Tariq already did
Buildin' this, Fifth foundation in the wilderness
Thought-less, trespass and enter Thought's fortress
Limitless entrance, paid, to the order of the
Cypher slaughterer, my mic slappin' you senseless
Defenseless, n****z never movin' me inches
The beat Fifth, invisible in the trenches
Aficionado, awesome hip-hop drug problem
F*** stardom, and chickens up in Gotham
Poltergeist, slit or choke the mic, til it scream to me
Stop that, cash we conveniently got that
I stroll through your scenery c***ed back
Me and Hot Mack, the nine-eight, El Eldorado Cadillac Jacks

Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
Step into the realm, you're bound to get caught
And from this worldly life, you'll soon depart
