What, what? what's the fuss?
You know what, man?

You pay five bucks to come in here to just stand in the back and act like you're to hard to enjoy yourself
Well actually, I didn't have to pay
To each his own correct then don't select my flavor
While I see them in the back critiquin' my behavior

Trying to take create n' shape me to fit this mold
He yelled out sellout but maybe he wasn't told
So let me tell a shallow mind why we do what we do
I create for the Creator not to impress you

Challenge your thinking but not to test you
You might not like me, I'll still say God bless you
And address the issue it's all love and respect
And honestly bro, I don't think that's too much to expect

But too many times, the shallow mind will keep you caught
You can't escape from thinkin' all you ever been taught
Is that you walk this way
You talk this way

You front this way
You pose this way
You act this way
Na na, that ain't me, I got to be who God created me to be

Do not tell me what I can and cannot do when I rock
Why is it as humans we cling on to only what we know
Never expandin', steppin' out that comfort zone
We rock alone and the roam in ignorance

Turn back around and use it as a defense
For shallowness this seems to be a concern
'Cause not knowin' is an excuse for those unwillin' to learn
Alright I need all the people to the front to the back

To back to front, lets get down, we gonna do it like this
Do not tell me what I can and cannot do when I rock
Original material, my crew non-stop
We keepin' it fly, we turnin' out

Y'all feel us on that? No doubt!
Do not tell me what I can and cannot do when I rock
Original material, my crew non-stop
We keepin' it fly, we turnin' out

Y'all feel us on that? No doubt!
Do not stereotype the individual
'Cause what you hear in your stereo is not the typical
Stereotypes get broken down, we're non-provokin'

New levels of thought to leave the shallow mind open
Cats aproachin' me without no lack or no clue
I understand though bro, see someone's been trainin you
To think like you think and act like you do

Its getting old, not like it should have ever been new
But as long as shallowness exists, I shal persist
To rip apart the whole structure and expose the nucleus
Shallowness exists, I shall persist to rip apart the whole structure and expose it for what it is

Lack of understanding, Lack of communication
Lack of a desire for expanding education
Lack of inspiration, Lack of innovation
The fact you can't respect another man's creation
Lack of motivation, Lack of restoration
The fact we lack unity and enjoy separation
Lack of destination 'cause you know what I feel
I feel that humans lack the ability to be real
