CHORUS:
Listen, this is what I was born to do
Speak unique over beats, son, Iím warning you
Street prophet on the block, rock your corner crew
Comprehend one word or maybe more than two
Listen, this is what I was born to do
Speak unique over beats, son, Iím warning you
Street prophet on the block, rock your corner crew
Keep air beneath my wings so I can soar with you

I get more into this music, I do
Canít explain the way the groove make me feel brand new
Familiar with a twist like some soul renewed
Iím light stepping on the backs of my foes in twoís
Know the chosen few so let me grow with you
Been doing this for a while so I know whatís due
I encode the clues so that my soul accrue
The interest of the Most High molding you
Just like my man Wu got the Golden Shu
Lost Step gain respect like the oldest Crew
Phat KATS sticking tracks like we holding glue
But never heard this thirst that I hold for true
Music do this like some grown folks do
Itís my heart, bone, muscles, and my hormones too
Spirit navigates everything Iíve told to you
So open up this free gift and let it show for you, listen

Listen, this is what I was born to do
Speak unique over beats, son, Iím warning you
Street prophet on the block, rock your corner crew
Comprehend one word or maybe more than two
A three, four, or five, I keep the party live
Iím sowing seeds with the music while yaíll shuck and jive
Gonna shine on this mic so yaíll can open your eyes
Be sure to eat these raps up before you open your prize
Wonít see Sivion rock a rap disguise
Complete with ice, wads of cash, and a wealth of lies
See, ah, I fit my britches no too big for you guys
Cuz I keep it down to earth, learn, and multiply
Spread this wisdom out thin across the surface of this world
Cleaning up this rap music for the boys and girls
See, ah, itís up to you to make a change for the better
Iíma spread this butter while yaíll chase after cheddar

Listen, this is my life, you can tell me on sight
I was built to juggle raps while I tame the mic
My mother always told me Iíd have my name in lights
From the spirit of the Most High flaming bright
I keep it ďOut-a-SightĒ when the day turns night
Though you try to do this wrong, it just may turn right
This is a celebration, got an all invite
Trying to untangle this music like a fallen kite
Trapped in the tree of life, woven deep within the branches
Simplify your life, canít keep it so demanding
Give it all to God so you can reap from what youíre planning
So best believe I wonít say it Ďless I do it
Flow with energy from Jehovah like fluid
Opportunity to stick love, son, I glue it
Sending out this butterfly kiss, nothing to it
