        Bass! How low can you go?
        Death row what a brother knows
        Once again, back is the incredible
        The rhyme animal
        The incredible D. Public Enemy number one
        Five-O said "Freeze!" and I got numb
        Can't I tell 'em that I really never had a gun?
        But it's the wax that the Terminator X spun
        Now they got me in a cell 'cause my records they sell
        'Cause a brother like me said "Well
        Farrakhan's a prophet and I think you ought to listen to
        What he can say to you, what you ought to do"
        Follow for now, power to the people say,
        "Make a miracle. D, pump the lyrical"
        Black is back, all in, we're gonna win
        Check it out, yeah y'all, here we go again

        Turn it up! Bring tha noize!

        Never badder than bad 'cause the brother is madder than mad
        At the fact that's corrupt as a senator
        Soul on a roll, but you treat it like soap on a rope
        'Cause the beats in the lines are so dope
        Listen for lessons I'm saying inside music that the critics are 
blasting me for
        They'll never care for the brothers and sisters now across the 
country has us up for the war

        We got to demonstrate, come on now, they're gonna have to wait
        Till we get it right
        Radio Stations I question their blackness
        They call themselves black, but we'll see if they play this


        Get from in front of me, the crowd runs to me
        My deejay is warm, he's X, I call him Norm, ya know
        He can cut a record from side to side
        So what, the ride, the glide should be much safer than a suicide
        Soul control, beat is the father of your rock'n'roll
        Music for whatcha, for whichin', you call a band, man
        Makin' a music, abuse it, but you can't do it, ya know
        You call 'em demos, but we ride limos, too
        Whatcha gonna do? Rap is not afraid of you
        Beat is for Sonny Bono, beat is for Yoko Ono
        Run DMC first said a deejay could be a band
        Stand on its feet, get you out your seat
        Beat is for Eric B, and L.L. as well, hell
        Wax is for Anthrax, still it can rock bells
        Ever forever, universal, it will sell
        Time for me to exit, Terminator X-it


        From coast to coast, so you stop being like a comatose
        'Stand, my man? The beat's the same with a boast dose
        Rock with some pizzazz, it will last why you ask?
        Roll with the rock stars, still never get accepted as
        We got to pleed the fifth, we can investigate
        Don't need to wait, get the record straight
        Hey, posse's in effect, got the Flavor Terminator
        X to sign checks, play to get paid
        We got to check it out down on the avenue
        A magazine or two is dissing me and dissing you
        Yeah, I'm telling you
