  • I wanna introduce y'all to a friend of mine
    A lot of y'all don't know him
    But maybe you'll understand if he talks to you

    Good evening, it's me, yeah it sounds so strange
    May not know me but I am a household name
    Since I came I ain't never been without no fame
    Always grab attention, mayne without no strain
    Yeah you heard of me, maybe I slipped out your brain
    Some they really love me, no doubt, no vain
    Others think I'm whack like "he sounds so lame"
    Some are somewhere in the middle like when altos sing
    But yup, you might find me fresh of the presses
    Dressed in the best, love I can't spare to reckon
    Lives over lives, I'm direct with a message
    Incapable of lies, come correct when I step in
    Known to change lives, yeah my rep is impressive
    Some don't really get me, 'cause I am hard to see
    I've split up some families, I'm known to cause wreckage
    Some don't really get me, they say I'm hard to read

    [Chorus]
    Know me
    Know me, Know
    Know me
    Know me, Know

    Ey, I'm so old school but I'm relevant to new
    In the league of my own, known for tellin' them the Truth
    I know fakes that oppose, but I'm tellin' 'em to move
    'Cause they ain't on my level like my elevator move
    They try to hang it, compete it with out brain
    But they just ain't the same, they miss, they playin' games
    I got Truth that they missin', 'bout what they can't obtain
    Thay facin' that real, one day they will be ashamed
    No challenges can harm me, I'm battlin' the storm
    I know folks that got my quotes tatted on they arms
    But they missin' the point, from Atlanta to the Bronx
    If they lives don't change then they battles ain't in form
    I get you gotta speak on matters that'll form
    The way you see the world from your calories to porn
    If you hear me but never change, better be alarmed
    I need doer, it's not hearers, it's just the norm, Let's go

    [Chorus]

    Hey throughout my lifetime, I done seen a lot of folks
    Been around the world but ain't seen a lot of hope
    And I came to help if they believed in what I spoke
    Most ain't listen very well, they just read a lot of quotes
    Been used and abused by most of families
    Some dudes in them pews, please don't remind me
    The views that they choose, really don't define me
    Look, I just wanna be understood
    Hey, I'm a great storyteller and a beast of a poet
    A master historian, esteemed by the coldest
    And all of this is centered around He's who they notice
    But didn't recognize as the King who controls it
    The most high up, and I'm so inspired
    By you moved, created everything, done triumph
    I take it, He's a lover plus a known fighter
    But I can't take credit 'cause I got a ghost writer

    You ain't caught it yet?
    I'm talkin' 'bout the Word
    Yeah, and if you don't know Him you need to
    Study His ways and they will keep you from evil
    Word
