Basically, can't f*ck with me 

I came to bring the pain hardcore from the brain
Let's go inside my astral plane
Find out my mental's based on instrumental
Records hey  so I can write monumental
Methods, I'm not the King
But niggas is decaf I stick 'em for the cream
Check it  just how deep can shit get 
Deep as the abyss and brothers is mad fish accept it 
In your Cross Color clothes you've crossed over 
Then got Totally Krossed Out and Kris Kross 
Who the boss? Niggas get tossed to the side 
And I'm the dark side of the Force
Of course it's the Method, Man from the Wu-Tang Clan
I be hectic, and coming for the head piece protect it
F*ck it, two tears in a bucket, niggas want the ruckus
Bustin' at me bruh, now bust it
Styles, I gets buckwild
Method Man on some shit, pulling niggas files
I'm sick, insane, crazy, Drivin' Miss Daisy
Out her fuckin' mind now I got mine I'm Swayze

Is it real son, is it really real son
Let me know it's real son, if it's really real
Something I could feel son, load it up and kill one
Want it raw deal son, if it's really real

And when I was a lil' stereo (Stereo) 
I listened to some champion (Champion) 
I always wondered (Wondered) 
Will now I be the number one (Tical hahaha) 
Now you listen to the Gargon (Gargon) 
And the Gargon summary 
And any man dat come test me (Test me) 
Me gwanna lick out them brains (It's like that) 

Brothers want to hang with the Meth bring the rope 
The only way you hang is by the neck nigga poke 
Off the set comin' to your projects 
Take it as a threat, better yet it's a promise 
Comin' from a vet on some old Vietnam shit 
Nigga you can bet your bottom dollar hey I bomb shit 
And it's gonna get even worse word to God 
It's the Wu comin' through sickin niggaz for they garments 
Movin' on your left, southpaw em it's the Meth 
Came to represent and carve my name in your chest 
You can come test realize you're no contest 
Son I'm the gun that won that old Wild West 
Quick on the draw with my hands on the four 
Nine three eleven with the rugged rhymes galore 
Check it cause I think not when this hip-hops like proper 
Rhymes be the proof while I'm drinkin' 90 proof 
Huh vodka, no OJ, no straw 
When you give it to me aiy, give it to me raw 
I've learned when you drink Absolut straight it burns 
Enough to give my chest hairs a perm 
I don't need a chemical blow to pull a hoe 
All I need is Chemical Bank to pay da mo'

What, basically that, Meth-Tical, ninety-four style 
Word up we be hazardous
Northern spicy brown mustard hoes 
We have to stick you 


I'll fuckin', I'll fuckin' cut your kneecaps off 
And make you kneel in some staircase piss 

I'll fuckin', cut your eyelids off 
And feed you nuthin' but sleepin' pills 

You motherfuckers 
(So) So f*ck the hoe 
F*ck the hoe 

(Look at this nigga, this motherfuckin')
