    Step Up Lyrics 03:31
    (It starts with one)
    One thing I don’t know why
    It doesn't even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
    To explain in due time
    All I know
    time is a valuable thing
    Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
    Watch it count down to the end of the day
    The clock ticks life away
    It's so unreal
    Didn't look out below
    Watch the time go right out the window
    Trying to hold on but didn't even know
    Wasted it all just to
    Watch you go
    
    I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
    What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter
    
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter
    
    One thing, I don't know why
    It doesn't even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
    To remind myself how
    I tried so hard
    In spite of the way you were mocking me
    Acting like I was part of your property
    Remembering all the times you fought with me
    I'm surprised it got so (far)
    Things aren't the way they were before
    You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
    Not that you knew me back then
    But it all comes back to me
    In the end
    
    You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
    What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn't even matter
    
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn't even matter
    
    I’ve put my trust in you
    Pushed as far as I can go
    For all this
    There's only one thing you should know
    I’ve put my trust in you
    Pushed as far as I can go
    For all this
    There's only one thing you should know
    I tried so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn't even matter
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn' even matter
    I watch how the
    Moon sits in the sky / in the dark night
    Shining with the light from the sun
    The sun doesn’t give life to the moon assuming
    The moon’s gonna owe it one
    It makes me think of how you act to me / you do
    Favors and then rapidly / you just
    Turn around and start asking me / about
    Things that you want back from me
    I’m sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place / to feed your greed -
    While I find a place to rest
    
    I want to be in another place
    I hate when you say you don’t understand
    [You'll see it's not meant to be]
    I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
    A place for my head
    
    Maybe someday I’ll be just like you / and
    Step on people like you do and
    Run away the people I thought I knew
    I remember back then who you were
    You used to be calm / used to be strong
    Used to be generous / but you should’ve known
    That you’d
    Wear out your welcome / now you see
    How quiet it is / all alone / I’m so
    
    Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place / to feed your greed -
    While / I find a place to rest
    
    You try to take the best of me
    Go away
    Yo
    Watch as the room rocks
    Mentally moon walk
    Mixed media slang
    Banging in your boom box
    Verbal violence
    Lyrical stylist
    In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
    You can’t tempt me with rhymes that are empty
    Rapping to a beat doesn’t make you an emcee
    With your lack of skill and facility
    You’re killing me
    And a DJ in the group just for credibility
    I heard that some of you are getting help with your rhymes
    You’re not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
    Rapping over rock doesn’t make you a pioneer
    Cause rock and hip hop have collaborated for years
    But now they’re getting randomly mixed and matched up
    All after a fast buck and all the tracks suck
    So how does it stack up
    None of it’s real
    You want to be an emcee you’ve got to study the skill
    
    Who can rock a rhyme like this
    Bring it to you every time like this
    Who can rock a rhyme like this
    Step, step up, step, step up
    
    So you pick up a pen and write yourself a new identity
    But mentally you don’t have the hip hop energy
    With a tendency to make up stories
    Sounding like the only hip hop you’ve heard is top 40 (top 40)
    And your record company is completely missing it
    All the kids are dissing it for not being legitimate
    So in a battle you can’t hack it
    React with whack shit
    And get smacked with verbal back flips
    Get your ass kicked by fabulous battle catalysts
    It’s taken decades for emcees to establish this
    You’re new to hip hop and welcome if your serious
    But not on the mic
    Leave that to the experienced
    
    Using the waves of sound the true master
    Paralyzes his opponents, leaving him vulnerable to attack

    After years of pain staking research by the world’s
    Leading sound scientists, we here at the sound
    Institute have invented a reliable audio weapons system.
    Actual movement of musical sound in space used to
    Carefully attack and neutralize the cellular structure of
    The human body, so the question must be asked.
