Verse 1:
Join the Dark Side, I been there and done that
And all I got was inspiration to write this rap
Not a Lightsaber, telekinesis or black cloak
Though I rock my black hoodie when attempting the Force-choke
Nope, that neither, either way I still love this shit
Credit my crazy wild open imagination with it
A Long Time Ago, 14 years for some
My cousin played Episode IV and I fell in love
And one year later the child Vader on the screen
And the gorgeous Natalie Portman playing the queen
Here go the first celebrity crush, nice choice
And also getting me hard is James Earl Jones' voice
I'm a Star Wars geek
I'd rather The Phantom Menace or Return Of The Jedi to Beat Street
The original trilogy and the new and even the TV show
Fanatical any way every time I happen to throw them on

Hook 1:
It's Generation SFX, I know that some are opposed
To Lucas going back and adding it to the old shows
But I was born into it all and can't relate to those
My love is for the imagination and the scope it posed
It's Generation SFX
It's Generation SFX
My love is for the imagination and the scope it posed

Verse 2:
And still does
I still feel like I'm ten years of age
Every time I see the double-saber and animalistic rage of Darth Maul
And thirteen when I heard the seismic charge
And fifteen at the premiere of Revenge, Jedi at large, yeah
Technological terror, Death Star super-laser blast
And Han in carbon-freeze and a weak hand recalling the past
And Princess Leia's slavegirl bikini, what can I say?
Every fanboy hitting pause to take a moment for the solo play
Yeah, Solo know the score
Ignoring stories of Chewie palms 'cos ya worship Star Wars
I'm the first to admit it, with it I desecrate verse
Like Vader did the temple with the 501st
OG's hating new creations but revise the page
If Sith dropped in '77 you'd all be singing its praises
With the sabers and lasers; the story came second
If you ain't copping to that then y'all are lying, I reckon

Hook 2:
It's Generation SFX, I know that some are opposed
To Lucas going back and adding it to the old shows
But I was born into it all and I can't relate to those
My love is for the imagination and the scope it poses
It's Generation SFX
It's Generation SFX
My love is for the imagination and the scope it poses

Verse 3:
At home on Tatooine as much as I am on Naboo
Chilling at the Lars homestead, sipping milk that's blue
Or frolicking out in the fields with Padmé, chatting radical politics
Opposite of Vader's dictators; get off of it!
A Separatist mind frame but no mind games
No chancellor behind the curtain to finger for blame
I be the straight up straight talker like Qui-Gon Jinn
Telling Mace and Yoda and all the rest of 'em how it is
I'm the Chosen One
Chosen by the Force to rep' Star Wars up in Hip Hop
Shout it from the skyscrapers of Coruscant
Shout it from B-City and Cloud City and Death Star trash compactors
'Til my throat kills and I need some bacta
Bloody death sticks; where was Obi-Wan with the mind tricks
When I was fifteen and I was offered cigs?
Nah, it's all good man, to, I could never blame you
And I almost forgot: I fucking love R2-D2!!

Hook 2 (X2)

It's Generation SFX (X3)

My love is for the imagination and the scope it poses
