[Verse 1]
I’m too deep, and yes much too complicated
My lines when stated are quite often underrated
So consider it a privilege to hear this
The weak-minded opinions could never come near this
For my outlook on life is a profound view
While the suckers act down thinking that they sound new
Only a few sound true
Me and the crew know who
‘Cause see, me and the fellas have been waiting for a while now
Giving you the time to get your whack ass style down
You punks pop junk as if life is a fantasy
Knowing that hard is something you can’t be
So you front but you could never call my bluff
You’ll catch hell kid, you’ll get dealt with

I never sleep, I always peep, rhymes creep
I’m too deep, I’m too deep

[Verse 2]
I forgive you, psych! I’m takin’ your life
‘Cause you continue to disrespect so I’ma get trife
But then again I think I’ll spare ya
‘Cause I know that all it takes is one rhyme just to scare ya
See, I’m the holder of the key
Don’t ask me if I’m Muslim, don’t say nothin’ to me
I said I was raised like one, son, I had two cousins
They pushed me to find myself or else they knew I wasn’t
Gonna make it and then end up a statistic
My life was twisted, I almost missed it
The chance, yes, the chance to make you feel good
I used to steal goods and fake my parents out real good
But now I got K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E of self ’cause I’m me
And the nation of Islam has my support
‘Cause they try to reeducate ones who are lost
And the Five-Percent Nation takes other steps
To get through to the brothers on the corners with the reps
And in the prisons, givin’ the brothers new visions
Of how we can gain wealth and gain self-esteem and dream
Of a total different scene, I dress clean, stand lean
Say what I mean and I’m out
Like a scout on a new route exhibiting clout
I never sleep, I always peep, rhymes creep
I’m too deep, I’m too deep

[Verse 3]
For right now, yo, my religion is rhymin’
Perfect timing, test the flow and climb in
Ansaar, Sunnite, Shiite, Jihad
All must regard that times are hard
Unite or perish is the message that I cherish
That goes for my people of all religions
If we’re all black why have so many divisions?
Superficial factors are drawing us apart
Don’t let it happen, let’s put some respect back in
So before I act I think ’cause it’s a brink of destruction
World corruption, what’s up son, your gun is just one
And I just might have one or two or maybe even three or four
Plus an army of about 100 or more
But violence is never my first choice
I come in peace to release the effect of my voice

I never sleep, I always peep, rhymes creep
I’m too deep, I’m too deep
