Rapid transit, be moving too fast
You better get up off your ***
It`s possible that this here is your last chance
The non stopper, the lil rhyme dropper
To step the I.N.S crew is improper

We loom spots, terrorists hiding behind shadows
And the darkness Insolence crew desperado
I`m the last Prince of Babylon
Hell fire washed out with water

[Chorus: ]
You better get up, you better stand up, `cause
If you can`t then you wind up in a world of ****
You better get up, you better stand up, `cause
If you can`t then you wind up in a world of ****
You better get up, you better stand up, `cause
If you can`t then you wind up in a world of ****

Yo ma it`s time for you to stand up kid...
Well I don`t care what you all heard
`Cause I will be on a terrorist mission
To rule the whole world
Siphon sight through sound
Smoking by the pound
I sniffed more gina than a blood hound

Don`t like the way I look then don't stare
You don't like my attitude, I don't care
If you step on my shoes, you`re gonna surely lose
Into your soul I will tear


Fists in the air, a rugged world that's not fair
Want to ask the tough question
Let`s play truth or dare
Got a style that's unique, victory no defeat
World wide conquest, my mission
Your pain will be sweet
Your crew can`t test so praise the Don Dada [Repeat 4X]

Hardcore mastery verbally spitfire
One hit quitter tapestry with barbwire
Palms get burned when you lay your hands down
Terrorism hits `em once my squad lands down
I never lie, I never lie but when i stand accused
I deny, I deny can`t take the heat repeat
And it gets a little hotter

[Chorus: ]

Your crew can`t test so praise the Don Dada [Repeat 4X]

[Chorus: ]
