Just do somethin' to tell you who I am, ya know?

Yeah
(High voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out)

It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

I've been digging into crates ever since I was living in space
Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
Mastered numerology and Big Bang theology
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology

Invented the mic so I could start blessing it
And chin-checking kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords to double helixes
And show them what I'm made of

I buckle knees like leg braces
Cast the spell of instrumental-ness on all of the MCs that hate us
So try on (try it), leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity let icons be bygones

I firebomb, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit, with or without an accomplice (Mixed Media)
The stamp of approval is on this

It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

(Akira) I put a kink in the backbones of clones
With microphones, never satisfy my rhyme jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
Blood type Krylon, Technicolor type A

On highways, bright with road rage
I'm patient to win the cage and the tin to bounce all around
In surround sound, devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings overall the same thing

Sing-song karaoke copy madness
Break bones verbally with sticks-and-stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention ('tention)

Meant to put you away with the pencil, pistol, official
Sixteen-line, rhyme missile
While you risk your all, I pick out all your flaws
Spin rah blah blah blah, you can say you saw

It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage, you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

    General CommentReally cool song, I like it even more than the remix.


    Uberchicken wtf? Real fans do want their bands to be popular. Popular as in appreciated and successful. It isn't good when bands become sellouts and all kinds of posers pretend to like them just because they're popular, but any "true" fan would want to be heard.

    General CommentThis song is similar to the song "Step Up". He's tired of fake hip hop bullshit that gets played on the radiowaves nowadays.
