    (hook)
    I'ma take you back, take take you back
    I'ma take you back, take take you back
    I'ma take you back, take take you back
    I'ma take you back, take take you back (W-W-W-Way Back!)
    I'ma take you back, take take you back
    I'ma take you back, take take you back
    See, cuz it's twisted..
    In the future, scientists will prove that we never even existed

    [Verse One]
    I got lectured once while eating breakfast for lunch
    Said dad to me "Reality is nothing but a collective hunch
    Whatever you want the truth to be, simply fool the masses
    Attack them mentally with tools of power like the Masters
    Get em in elementary school and college classes
    Eventually you'll overrule their cowardly asses
    Don't worry about society, they're all horrible bastards"
    With this knowledge I blast kids. stay dark like Howard's glasses
    I'm "Stern!" plus I rule with an iron fist
    With no concern, it's so cruel, where did I learn this?
    It's in my gene pool. For permanent bliss
    It seems cool, only if you suffer from eternal ignorance
    Internal innocence rejects external filth. Hurdle the guilt
    My ancestors left. Dress with a traditional kilt
    Curdled milk that's under suspicion will get spilt
    Ain't no use crying. Who's lying about the empire I built?
    Another self proclaimed historian
    With Einstein as his passenger, and a flux capacitor in his Delorean
    Rewrote my past, taught me sin
    When we spoke at last he caught me in the chin
    There was no need to ask, I know he fought me to win
    My broken task is born again, let a new war begin
    I think he saw me grin. Played my ass like a sucka
    Turned that brunch between me and my father into our last supper

    [Chorus]
    He'll take us back, take take us back
    He'll take us back, take take us back (Take us back back!)
    He'll take us back, take take us back
    He'll take us back, take take us back (W-W-W-Way Back!)
    See, cuz it's twisted..
    In the future, scientists will prove that we never even existed

    [Verse Two]
    So now I'm orphaned into this world of a rewritten past
    Where they force my girl to clean and force me to sit in class
    The teacher laughs as he preaches math, beats me with a staff
    Because the text we read expects us to bleed each paragraph
    I speed through the chapter fast. My prospectful wife
    Hangs her pride at half mast, force fed domestic life
    Is giving her a fat ass...she can't eat no more
    "We'll see who laughs last" is what she speaks so sure
    as she sweeps the floor
    Her bare feet are sore. I'd massage her toes
    But she's way too busy doing dirty laundry and washing my clothes
    This bastard ass took us back to the dark ages
    My heart races. He's got 1 out of 3 blacks locked in cages
    Sage is heading for the mic, but they blocked the stages
    Dopes took his notebook, said "Don't look!" as they blotched the page
    Ignoramuses must have "idio-dildos" stuck up in their anuses
    Dominatrixes explain how pleasurable of a pain this is
    I ain't with this game of his.I'm looking for a loophole
    Just because you look the part, don't mean you can play, ask Manute Bol
    My absolute role is to save whatever is left of me
    The last of my true soul, so I dress up like the referee
    To get the coach on every bench pissed
    They approach me with a clenched fist
    So I throw up their past lives and say, "Catch this!"
    They get the drift, but fans rush the court
    Propaganda programs they hold in their hands
    brain washed and flushed their thought
    Now it's a blood sport. My girl ain't with this strange land
    She was fronting like a cheerleader as she figured out the game plan
    Made peeks at play sheets, memorized them like the Rain Man
    Conducted her own brain scan, then reversed the chain of command
    "She learned the formulas?" The story is unraveling
    She seduced Einstein by dressing up like Marilyn..
    Monroe. now she's got a Manson look in her eyes
    And a grin that's stretching so wide.damn, son, I'm petrified!

    [Chorus]
    She'll take us back, take take us back
    She'll take us back, take take us back (Take us back back!)
    She'll take us back, take take us back
    She'll take us back, take take us back(W-W-W-Way Back!)
    See, cuz it's twisted..
    In the future scientists will prove that we never even exsssss....
