lyrics

Intro:

Uh huh (uh huh)
Uh huh (yeah yeah)
Yeah yeah

It's Five Steez, the Five Star MC
Tun up di mic a likkle please

Chorus

I came to bring the pain (came to bring the pain)
They say I'm crazy and deranged (crazy and deranged)
Well, maybe I'm insane (maybe I'm insane)
but I'm just blazing up the flames (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)

Yeah yeah

Verse 1:

Dem waa di dancehall so mi give it to dem
dem haffi pull up dis bad riddim again
mi chat some stuff from within my pen
giving you gems, this kid is a ten
but I'm Five Steez, I'm a MC
right now, mi a deejay, don't hate me
out of dis world, like Hades, sicker than rabies
mi dawgs dem hate fleas
since my ABC's, I was sounding
like Supercat and Jay-Z, I maybe
rhyme like AZ lines or KP
we mek Rap buss a yard, dem disc jock just a fraud
check the facts from di start, ah yah suh it tek off
when Clive Campbell set him box up inna di Bronx
Hip Hop is in my songs, Rasta in my chant
Selassie in mi heart, Jesus in my features
on my feet is Adidas, Run DMC was the leaders
nutn sweeter than the tweeter, leaning on the speakers
wid a queen and a diva steaming the sativa
legal up the reefer, pleading to the leaders
'cause I see the rights of the people is in breaches
reason with the teachers with Egyptian secrets
Steez is the deepest, an MC so genius

Chorus (Repeat)

I came to bring the pain (came to bring the pain)
They say I'm crazy and deranged (crazy and deranged)
Well, maybe I'm insane (maybe I'm insane)
but I'm just blazing up the flames (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)

Yeah yeah

Verse 2:

Dem say mi sound unique
Big up Manifesto, the crew deep
Hip Hop ting, is a new beat
Every line mi sing is a true speech
Yeah, dem feel mi like Tupac
so dem buss a few shot from dem new Glock
then some new cop come mek di tune stop
but then dem start feel di roots rock
mix wid di Hip Hop, di empress dem hips rock
touch your toes, now tick tock
yow, mi haffi grip dat from di shape tip top
mi have di sick chat, she seh mi have di big what
I walk wid a slick bop, fresher than Ziplock
you better check what time it is, wristwatch
flip rhymes in styles Pizzle and Dig got
add melody like 9 and di ting shot
mi marry di music, nuh need di ring back
even though the ting lack funds for mi bring back some
drop War for Peace and the Kings of Kings album
hope the local DJ's rinse off some
I'm simply awesome, but dem waa run
mi off the mic, 'cause di bars are tight
Hip Hop cause a fight, dem nah see right
love the flashy life and not the Rasta ites

Outro w/ dub delays
