[Erinn Anova]
Come along and reap
I need my song
We're climbin' over
Beneath the sea
March on
Time is almost gone
It's all in me
No maybe

[Gift Of Gab]
Here we go again
Slip into my conscience, come along an take in
A story bout a battle, in this corner, Satan
Cunning, baffling, and jumping into half the drink
And suddenly disasters and catastrophe
And acting unrationally
Reacting savagely
To passionately
Bask in everlasting like escapes from just what its creating
Jeopardizin' love
Look at all the people that you took advantage of
See your hypnotized
Rom be gone, take another cup
In consequences lurk
While the reaper got your shirt size
Nigga wack up
Times overdue for the birth of a power that the universe grew from

[Erinn Anova]
Come along and reap
I need my song
We're climbin' over
Beneath the sea
March on
Time is almost gone
It's all in me
No maybe (x2)

[Gift Of Gab]
You search for the answers outside
Refocus causin' time and time again, backslide
You've noticed times before the presence of that "I"
But never did submit to it and let it apply
Whatever be his will in this present life time
Or essence like mine
Know the blessings you might find
If you let your higher power inside
Emerge and apply to every single thing in your balance
You will truly find
Who you really are
Die and become reborn
When God is present in your life than you can come reap on
And ain't a storm that you can't weather
You got a purpose you was born to create
Destiny is waitin' for you
Arms open, take with ya
Knowledge bestowed by the great giver
Lakes, rivers
Mountains and steams
Now reality's the dream wraitha
No more searchin' for truth that was always wit' cha
It had to hit ya through the struggle and the turmoil
Ya soul was planted and it sprouted out above soil
And let the sun shine freely down
At times it looked like it wouldn't
But the plant came to flourish
Now it's standin' on solid ground

[Erinn Anova]
Come along and reap
I need my song
We're climbin' over
Beneath the sea
March on
Time is almost gone
It's all in me
No maybe (x2)

[Lateef]
Sun rises like water up in my eyes
I'm watchin' changing times but like a changing tide
Tryna to keep my head above the ed if I could be

[Lateef & Erinn Anova]
The sun rises like water up in my eyes
I'm watchin' changing times but like a changing tide
Tryna to keep my head up
Above the ed if I could be
Least
If I may

[Erinn Anova]
Come along and reap
I need my song
We're climbin' over
Beneath the sea
March on
Time is almost gone
It's all in me
No maybe (x4)

    General CommentIncredible song. Love Blackalicious, so friggin talented. don't know a lot of personal stuff about the band (such as religious beliefs) but know that they are a positive-tip rap group which falls in line with this song whether it be about finding God or just being spiritual within yourself it speaks to someone about enlightning themselves and uplifting them. I think the song (like most good songs) could speak to a varied situations such as someone who wants something but isn't doing much about getting it. Or someone who is drowning in problems and can't seem to get out of it. Or someone who is looking to change their charachter or motivations, perhaps as a result of substance abuse.

    It's a song that is a call to action to better oneself and/or their situation. The lyrics are incredible and the song itself is so good. Love the chorus: "We're climbin' over Beneath the sea March on Time is almost gone It's all in me - No maybe" to climb over from beneath the sea is just a metaphor for trying to get to the surface, being drowned.
