Artist: RZA Album: Taking Heads Off (S) Song: Taking Heads Off Typed by: Cno Evil [RZA] Right or wrong, weak or strong, I ask who all can come Take place and face number one If you thinking that I'm lip synching You're mistaken, become awaken As I make and break, but take my time To rhyme, and infiltrate your mind When it's allowed, I push through the crowd Bag a girl, then walk out proud Some surround me, others crown me And girls with water, they try to drown me But they not, plus, I'm a good swimmer, and a born winner The most known, who don't postpone And strip M.C.'s of crown and throne Have 'em blown away by a cyclone On the microphone, yea, the mic, it makes me that type I max, relax, plus get hype Won't twitch, or switch, but yet I will Walk the block, like a cop whose out to kill Enemies, in my own territory, so watch out for me But could you ever get far from Rakeem Allah? Heck, nah, baby pa... uh-uh... no way Jose Don't play, because I'm out to slay Any M.C. who gets in my way But today, M.C.'s is D-Day That means doomed, so build a tomb And wait for the boom, I'm taking heads off [Interlude: RZA] I'm taking heads off, I'm taking heads off! I'm taking heads off, so protect ya neck, kid... I'm taking heads off... [RZA] Now have you ever, ever, ever, ever, heard a style this clever No, you never, never, never, never, never, never, I got my act together I'm the iller, dealer, blood spiller, the graveyard filler Who bless the microphone like no other Better known as a live brother I chop those, who try to smoke me Took they heads off and used them as trophies It might seem that I'm down right mean, or a killing machine But lyrical broad, and thoughts I be installing Have you thinking the sky is falling Beat smart and start departing Know now snakes can enter my garden I-I-I-I-I don't play that jack, so-so, step back mack Cuz I react like a rhyming bomber Flow like a knight, in shining armor Ducks, who wanna beat Rakeem Pinch yourself and wake from the dream I'm too strong, I can't be penetrated You'll be eliminated, on the battlefield, I pity no man Chop so many heads, you might think I'm Conan But I consider myself to be iller I'm more like Jack, the giant killer So quit it, instead of thinking That you can win, cuz you dead and stinking You're too soft, so break north You just loss... I'm taking heads off [Outro: RZA] I'm taking heads off... yo, I'm taking heads off... Rakeem Allah... is taking heads off... Knowhatimsaying? So yo.. just protect ya neck Knowhatimsaying?
