lyrics

[Five Steez] Knowlege is the foundation
[Kabaka Pyramid] No doubt, sun
[Five Steez] Let's do this... help them understand
[Kabaka Pyramid] Let's make it known

Verse 1 [Five Steez]

I am, god and man
the five-pointed star for the rise and fall
and the five senses, four limbs, one head
five percenters say arm, leg, leg, Mass is/masses mislead
by belief, because without knowledge you dead
the universal laws of nature and your knowledge of self
show we god in the flesh, a concept is what you accept
the power of the mind accomplish success
man saw the sky from the earth, conceived a higher force
looking to the heavens to search and find the source
of the universe but what the hell they trying for?
when it resides in your soul, your self
is the only thing you can know, see the blind faith?
in an idea that the mind creates
it is what it is in the grimy place
all I can do is live and decide my fate

Chorus (Repeat)

I, can be who I wanna be
Why, shouldn't a man be free?
With lies and fear, they try to enslave me
Be wise, follow the knowledge and you'll see

Verse 2 [Kabaka Pyramid]

I Self-Law and Master, the god's in this
Allah's descendants, arm, leg, leg, arm, we all
share the same self whether you is male or female
I kick the detail 'cause most niggaz thoughts is frail
with minds fragile, not knowing thoughts travel
faster than the speed of light, sound and bullets through barrels
I resurrect the essence of Pharaohs like Isis
call me Heru, my thoughts are priceless, giving life to the lifeless
like Kheperu, I'm coming into being
knowing I made 'em, I still got love for Europeans
reduced to preeing myself as a man and not a god is flawed
so through the faculty of will, I must evolve
the truth, that's Ma'at with the wings on the arm
I sing for the strong, my third eye in the midst of the storm
we all know the Pyramid align with the Five Star
constellation, metaphyiscal conversation

Chorus (Repeat)

Verse 3:

[Five Steez]

I rise with the sun, resurrect every morning
no ritual or offerings, while you still lost in
the wildnerness, still thinking primitive
the difference is, I'm building with, knowldege unlimited
my lineage is the makers of the pyramids
that will be my pilgrimmage, not to where Israel is
the land of the Islamist, they made god in their own images
but I know the mind is infinite, all I do is tap into it

[Kabaka Pyramid]

Math and arithmetic, master the Genesis
unity is one and creation is to sever dis
my patience is unlimited, life force replenishing
my spine with the energies, time is my nemesis
it's all illusion when the gods is moving
know the universal laws and rules, watching y'all abuse 'em
religion only cause confusion, it's all been proven
that man can be Christ in the flesh, life over death 'cause

Chorus (Repeat)

Yeah
Is just a matter of time you know

Knowledge of self... Self-knowledge you know
That's what we talking
Ugh...

Pizzle... Steezy... BP... Bebble
Ugh
Let it ride out
Yeah
