You know we keep it true, we keep it true
We keep it true, we keep it true
You know we keep it true, we got to keep it true
We got to keep it true

We got to keep it true, you know what we do
You know what we do
We got to keep it true, relax your mind with the music
You know what we do, you know what we do
Sit back and vibe with this true shit

This isn't really what you think it is
That is if you're even thinkin' in the first place
The first place isn't always the winner
And winnin' isn't everything and this is not a race

I am not a android, I am not a Mongoloid
I am not annoyed by the void in your brain
This is not a trick, son, you are not a victim
You are just a man, B-boyed out the game, let me explain

Abstract, are you fresh? Ain't nobody fresher
But it's hard to get around without some clown tryin' to test ya
Acey, are you dope? Dopest in the world
I give it to the moms and pops, I give it to the boys and girls
Oh, so you a family man? Aren't we all, aren't we all
Yes, we are, trying to make jams man and expand my repertoire

We got to keep it true, we got to keep it true
Relax your mind with the music
You know what we do, you know what we do
Sit back and vibe with this true shit

Well, I be arrangin' thoughts in my brain cell family
[Unverified] embarking on incredible creative routes
Understanding me is truth shining like a lie
When I say break wide, I mean take trips
Not just in your ride in your mind

'Cause when you left, you're right on time
The sun'll come out tomorrow and it'll set in the west
So I don't sweat the rest
Who wanna inhale stress? Keep it true

You know we keep it true, we keep it true
We keep it true we keep it true
You know we keep it true, you know what we do
You know what we do

We got to keep it true, the W the W the W
We got to keep it true
Relax your mind with the music and keep it true
And keep it true, sit back and vibe with this true shit

The world is full of bullshitters, liars and triers and quitters
'Could have beens', wannabes, 'Thought-I-was isn't-I-is's
And everybody in your business, damn
Now what is really your main aim

When you are just a blotch and a stain on the planetary plane
Just another name in the phone book of fame
Bustin' out the seams it seems you haven't gained enough
To be seen in the right scene, your thoughts, they seem so convincing

But your actions don't follow through
Remember, never say never because it never comes true
Your thoughts, they seem so convincing for instance
You told me that you're a level higher liar
Element of desire, earth and the wind and the fire

Not, you ain't even halfway hot, not lukewarm
You don't got no form, you [unverified]
All caught up in bein' waterproof
When you shoulda been tryin' to catch up with the truth

For all intent and purposes, your life on earth ain't worth
It's weight in gold, that's probably why you get blowed
'Cause people tell people things and people sell people things
That are useless and irrelevant
And it stifles my intelligence I stay true

You know we keep it true and we keep on
And keep on and keep on
You know we keep it true, we keep it true
We keep it true

You can mumble, jumble if you got somethin' to say
But I doubt it's gonna affect me, I row my boat steady
Eveready is my battery description
Meaning I'm equipped to take long trips
And my brain cells overload when I get blowed

Gotta bring it down, there's a point where the joint stops
Being passed through the fingers of a rhyme [unverified]
The smoke from my last hit still lingers
Bring us your tired and your weary and your poor
I'm a take you higher while you're hearing metaphors

And similes assimilation of new creation
Mind emancipation, rhymes command the nation
And so on and therefore and such and such
Dust to dust, I thrust from the ground
With no where else to go but up L.A. is where I'm found

Throwin' up sets and blowin' up sets and goin' up
Stepney about to get a heavy track [unverified]
Or plenty of hip hop goin' round three
Heavyweights, it's your time so register
Foundate your legacy we serve all them replicas
True style, true style? True style, new style

You know we keep it true, we keep it true
We keep it true we keep it true
You know we keep it true, the W and every crew
We keep it true

We got to keep it true from me to you do what you do
Just keep it true
We got to keep it true, relax your mind with the music

Now I'm gonna take my last verse on a good note
You better prepare your footnotes, hold your wigs tight
Open up the middle, [unverified]
Words are the foundation, action is the building

And unity and the concept to result in logic and the use of logic
Now the object to be neutral partial to a judgment
And the subject's concentration, here is the pop quiz
What hip hop is?

You know we keep it true, relax your mind with the music
We got to keep it true, sit back and vibe to this true shit
The wrong thing to do is stop
