Uh, what what, yo yo P 5 D uncut
Check it out, yo yo, S P uncut
Yo yo, what P 5 D uncut
Yeah yeah it's that Philly shit
Yo yo, check it out, yo yo

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

Mesmerizing, state of the art Caffeine
It's over head like omniverse screen
I'm not the average savage that curse queens
I'm something from his worst dreams
First we handling first things, I'm subsurface un-seen
Grat'll hold planet by purse strings
MC's are earthlings, not built to hurt things
Speakin' the words of weaklings, nothin' but sweet things

Man each world, it ain't no time to recline
Act up, get clapped up, my mind is the nine
Shine like jewels that spark, swimmin' wit sharks
Never caught speakin' to NARC's, that's weak in the parks
I'm the type to sit back and analyze the prize
Grip it up and flee the scene wit a different disguise
Take a detour, I be all that I can be whore
Talkin' to this bitch life, had to make her my wife
Live twice, got seven more lives to live
I'm all out, takin' things to the fullest extent
Help me get it down and we can split one-hundred percent
Run a rapper through a maze like a experiment
Word up, you know the legendary roots crew, yo

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

The raw dice rise like a creature from out the swamp
Wit my blood-thirsty clergy that's on the hunt for conk
Who pumps your heart, I made you wanna rhyme from the start
You should be more alert, then you wouldn't get hurt
Get off your horse and on your P's and beware
Of images you seein', did deceiving, you're scared
And even more shook up than the scenes that's near
I'm dice raw, sting the inside of your mouth like a cold sore
Who wanna piece, well it's round one, let's begin
I got a gun that's don't bust, it just suck niggaz in
I got shit that'll have you beggin' me to shoot ya
I'm the professor, you rock a dunce cap, go get a tutor

Yo, okay computer, radiohead's knock to the
Future shock like Kurtis, at your service
None other than, the fifth government playin' the cut again
Y'all clueless to what the fuck is up again
Yo, hard times and sufferin'
What, my peoples in the crevices strugglin'
'Nuff of them ? Untie? Soldier thespian
But I'm from the next e-on, supreme being that's unseen for MC'n

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

Yo, they all around me 'round me
On my head, they got a bounty
I'm tryin' to get this bell up so I can flee ythe county
Triple-six, come in my mix, flood it wit tricks

I'm sharper than rough spoons for icepicks
Niggaz price bricks 'till dawn, if the money is long
Cats who play strong will inhale, then go play bong
You wrong son,if you thought I wasn't droppin' a ton
Sit and think about the way I wanna tally a sum

Aiyyo I sneakfully snuck up from behind and got you
From over there in them bushes, I chilled and watched you
Dancin all dolly as you pussy for them folly
I knock you out wit one punch from me you been allied
I float like hovercrafts and sting like vaccinations
When my name said out loud, you'll lose your concentration

Dice Raw, DICE RAW, you wanna take it
Otherwise, fuck you gon' do?
That's what I thought, nada, nothing, caput, zero
Rough as sandpaper but still smooth as a tiptoe
RAW's takin' over, baby don't tell me you ain't know
A lot of kids can rap but you fuckin' wit the pros
Now I'm sayin', y'all know the legendary Roots crew, it's like

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on your P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check

You don't see us, but we see you
You stuck on sleep, get on you P's and Q's
'Cuz you will get crept, wit no discrept
You know the rap, we keep the flows in check
