Hieroglyphics - You Never Knew

You never knew. It's like that, yeah. Hieroglyphics, yeah. Hiero, y'all!

It's not a wrong thing to be addicted to the microphone like a heroin fiend. I'll tell you one thing. You'll never catch me fronting as I proceed to give the people what they wanting. You're making some green. But not for glamour or fashion. I'm stacking cash until I can get Moms a mansion. All from rapping? Nah, man, there's many plans. Like investing in land. It started all from impressing the fans with brand new flows, and you know. All the way from gangsta clones to weirdos. Fools used those. But we ain't tripping. Give respect when you see this. You need us, or your rhymes under develop like a fetus.

Those that know, not doze, and it shows when we broke out the knock. Hoes hopped out they clothes. That's positive feedback. Yep, The Prose. I'm poised. We never pose. You'll never know. From "'93 'til Infinity" we've been inventive. Creating the bump is our only incentive, and it's been a long time since I feel I've been felt. But the only thing I fear is fear itself. So you know what we gots to do. Maybe could we keep it within the crew. Like it should be? Never giving out. We're living out our dreams. If there's something I can't live without, that's my team. You never knew...

Hieroglyphics. Hip-hop is vintage. Underground like silos launching long-range ballistics. World-renowned. We ground-breaking. Musical boundaries running circles around emcees.

Del -- been rhyming for more than a decade. Onto the next stage, while emcees need aid. Stay paid. I'm still grade-A. None of that tomfoolery. As you can see, this shit ain't nothing new to me. Utterly hovering over other things material. You're stuck in the here and now. Plus you're sweating profusely. Here's a towel. Your fears are now reality. When I take your dream states and elaborate on how your team's fake like phony IDs. But sometimes I feel like only I see through the charade you've made. In today, but hey, tomorrow it's played. And then they got a new fool in your place to be okayed.

Hieroglyphics. Hip-hop is vintage. Invented in days back. Rekindling in ways that many thought was lost in this contemporary maze of methods to floss. We finding trees and trails to blaze. Boundaries to cross. We can be found beyond the bounds of reason. Or earthbound, heating up the Coliseum.

They rushed the stage full-throttle in Chicago. Our brains interlocked where faking emcees get caught with the 40-bottle. Or get their chains snatched pronto. We unstoppable, dropping flows in Toronto. Maneuvering through Vancouver and on to Japan where they put major grands in my hands.

Straight from the heart, we set apart from the rest, and our perfection on the microphone was predestined. World-renowned. We ground-breaking. Musical boundaries. Running circles around emcees.

You never knew. It's like that, yeah. Hieroglyphics, yeah.
