I keep it doing it again
Oh, I'm doing it again
Yes, I'm doing it again
I said, "It would end"

Remix, rising up out of the flames like a Phoenix
Straining to carry the weight of my brain like a genius
Knowing I'm sowing seeds, let's see whose thumb is the greenest
If I said I mean it, I did it because I need it

Eat, sleep it or bleed it, write it down and then read it
Asphalt to the cement, your trash talk, delete it
I blast off then lay 'em out like a Tempur-Pedic
It's Black Thought, for certain I'ma win eventually

This unsung, underrated, under-appreciated
The one them underachievers had underestimated
Finally graduated, I'm one of the most hated
Something that's so sacred, nobody gon' take it

Face it, I keep doing it well
Doing it sans assistance, just do it yourself
Doing it below the radar, we doing it stealth
Doing it again for Illadelph, yo, who else?
We gon' do it again

I keep it doing it again
Oh, I'm doing it again
Yes, I'm doing it again
I said, "It would end"

Yeah, aiyyo, I'm on a job, see my eyes focused where the prize be
Even though they tried to rob me and sabotage the spot
Just like 'Pac when they got him in the lobby
Try to tax, you'll find me like Ronald Isley

I is a changed man, hanging with fans are probablies
Niggas used to know me, they don't even recognize me
Yep, the P-5-D is who the repertoire be
Doing it again just like Poitier and Cosby

I'm like Martin Luther King, you like Rodney
The difference is I give it everything inside me
Dear diary, the fans still swear by me
Even though I'm Late Night now, like Here's Johnny

Swimming with them great whites now, that's where to find me
Funny how it break right down but never mind me
Forever grimey, I guess it's just Philly shining
Rock roller, bi-polar like Phyllis Hyman

I keep it doing it again
Oh, I'm doing it again
Yes, I'm doing it again
I said, "It would end"
