[Q-Tip]
Power, people really get caught with this on different levels
Power controls your life
Money, the companion of the first. Some people tend to worship
And we know this ain't right.

[Phife]
Attitude(attitude) is how I get my point across.
You can't call yourself an MC if you know that you're soft.
Aggressive, is how the stage is approached. I burn MCs like toast
Cause I'm the host with the most.

[Consequence]
Illin(illin) is what you do when you're assin
Whether it be you or all up in your past and
Cashing, done turned your people corrupt
It's six o'clock, girl, you gotta get your weight up

[Q-Tip]
Sex(sex) Either a man or a woman.
This agenda, but when lovers get down
Froggin when niggas try to play roles
But when they really need to put that shit background

[Phife]
Miserable(miserable) is what your whole crew will be
If you're not original and you show no strategy
Heavenly, is how the track tends to flow
And if you don't know, tell em diggy said so

[Q-Tip]
We living this 'cause it's deep in our bones
A Tribe Called Quest with this hip hop Jones
So sit and analyze the lyrical spray
Cause all it really is is word play(word play)(word)

[Consequence]
Willie, that's what I kick to get this Millie on a lilly
Now, I'm packing dimes like Chilli
Stress(stress) That's what I always go through
Cause it's survival of the fittest on the 192

[Q-Tip]
Knowledge, when the mind accept facts
On this plane of living, knowledge be the key, black
Understanding, getting a grip on what's revealed
When shit be real, can't give understanding back

[Phife]
Analyze, that's what I do to MC's
That be talkin bout they this and that, money please
Ego, I'm on my own jock skill
Cause if I don't say I'm the best, tell me who the hell will

[Consequence]
Cheeba smoke y'all. That's what I use to get high
When I'm in a rut and I don't know why
Try. Yo try again my friend
Cause you can't see this MC representing Linden

[Q-Tip]
Freestyle(freestyle) A true MC trait
And when you do it ill, niggas respect it as great
Yo, I gotta (laughing)

[Phife]
We living this 'cause it's deep in our bones
A Tribe Called Quest with the hip hop Jones
So sit and analyze the lyrical spray
Cause all it really is is word play(word play)
