    Lyrics

    Yo, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yo, yeow, yeah huh, wake up
    Are we awake, are we wake, are we wake
    Take it low, low low low low

    Take it low take it low, take it low
    Yo, I said yo, I said yo, I said yo, yeah
    Kardinal is walkin', yo, just how we be talking, yo
    Fakes get they face palmed and thrown to the floor

    Shout out to the ghetto, girl's in they stilettos
    With their tongue rings, doing tricks, sippin' on Amaretto
    Fire pon a fosse-man a bad man truss me
    Not a homophobic, just a man who loves pss

    Come here let me see you and throw a little game
    You can either fall in love with the hood or with the name
    Explicit lyricism, yo, 'nuff narcissism
    Is invading hip-hop, replacing escapism

    My vision is an ism, yo, smoke it till you're high
    Unattainable goals blank to your third eye, yo
    Maneuvering high skies to low tone flows
    Straight to the five mic sight is where the flow goes

    Killing 'em with knowledge, the mind is the key
    Just sign on the dotted line and check who you be

    You, you, me, me, powerful, so powerful
    We're fighting for this goal and we ain't gonna stop
    We ain't never gonna stop y'all
    I said you, you, me, me, is wonderful, so wonderful
    We'll be makin' babies till our army's on top
    Till we standing on the top y'all

    The funk is in the air, yo, you might suffocate
    If you don't strap on your mack on and watch I articulate
    We don't shake hands with cops, yo, we don't participate
    Light up an informer and make his mouth menstruate

    Black is for Black, they can't understand that
    So they call it reverse racism and try to pin it back
    But if we ain't for us, who for us? Them? Nah
    If it was up to them they would have us ridin' in the back of the bus

    In handcuffs and other shackles, yo, check Mr. Bush
    Plant cocaine on me and call it operation push
    Our Prime Minister is actually second in command
    Bending over to the star spangled-politically strangled

    So we have to move, yo, through the underground
    Encode the funk mode and claim back the sound
    'Cause what's mine is gonna stay mine, word to line for line
    Off the top and all that, peace to magnificent rap

    You, you, me, me, powerful, so powerful
    We're fighting for this goal and we ain't gonna stop
    We ain't never gonna stop y'all
    I said you, you, me, me, is wonderful, so wonderful
    We'll be makin' babies till our army's on top
    Till we standing on the top y'all

    Look out, cameras are watching you, they watching you from birth
    And they be killing us softly by biologically attacking us first
    Don't think that you're immune
    'Cause your acquired system is soon to be consumed

    Flesh eating disorder, false claims of water
    I rip through the lies so I can bare sons and daughters, and soldiers
    Build my camp up like an army over Giza, running suicide missions
    You can't disarm me

    You, you, me, me, powerful, so powerful
    We're fighting for this goal and we ain't gonna stop
    We ain't never gonna stop y'all
    I said you, you, me, me, is wonderful, so wonderful
    We'll be makin' babies till our army's on top
    Till we standing on the top y'all

    Making babies till our army's on top
    Yeah, yeah, oh yeah
    Wake up, take it low, low low low low low

    Dear Lord, I really, I don't even know how to ax this
    You know, I can't, this this this is not an act
    I must, from the bottom of my heart,
    Ask forgiveness for my sins but you know what

    I ask that you give me the strength to be able to reach
    All of those peoples, on every street corner, every block, every ghetto
    All of those people, that we sometimes think are not worthy of
    Blessings, they're worthy to me

    And I think that as a man given the blessings you have given me
    The opportunity to speak, that I need to speak the language
    Of those people, and I need to reach them
    You know, because there's are a lot of good people on this earth

    But there still some people that need a talking to
    And I ask you to give me the strength to reach out to those people
    You know because I believe everybody is worthy of your blessings
    So I ask that you give, you give me
    My family, my crew, F.O.S, the circle

    All of us, all the babies that are being born
    You give us the strength to be able to deal with it how you see fit
    Because you give all of us the power
    As much as some people might not believe it

    You give us the strength to reach out and touch a lot people
    So Lord I ask you give me the strength
    To go out in the world and start the fire
    You know, start your fire, you understand I'm saying

    Lord, just please be with me, be with me
    And give me the strength and let me do this
    Come to you as humble man, Kardinal Offishall
    Quest for fire
