    [Intro: Killah Priest, {Killah Priest in background of his intro}]
    Your arms too short to box with god...
    (KP, Iron Shiek,
    In these times we gotta take one step.. forward.
    put one foot in front of the other, my brother..
    Yo, check this out)
    {Killah Priest, Hell Razah, Prodigal Sunn,
    Royal Fam, Dreddy Kruger}

    [Killah Priest]
    Early natives related to throwns of David
    captured by some patriots, and thrown on slave ships
    they stripped us naked, while they wives picked they favourite
    lives were wasted, in the hands of the hated
    driven from the garden [garden], now we starvin' in the martyring Sodom
    they call it Harlem, wordly problems got us at the bottom
    the Earth crisis, and the righteous grab their ice picks
    seekers like us for our rices, I stay in ciphers
    our live is, connected to second son of Isaacs, which had a tight grip
    on the heels of his brother, revealed to his mother
    the elders who served the younger, words heard in thunder
    down from under, rose and fled to grow in hunger, now it's cold in summer
    to slow your slumbers, behold a number, 600, 6 and 3 score
    the same as he saw, who ate his heat raw, in the time before
    they climbed aboard a dinosaur, information held behind the doors
    we came from the atmosphere, the physical trapped us here
    then they gave us crack and beer, in the back of the stairs
    please adapt your ears, add or subtract the years, and form the unwise
    and watch the sunrise from sunset, none-slep, one flesh, one breath..

    [Chorus: Hell Razah, (Tekitha)]
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)
    One Step, One Flesh, One Breath
    (Your arms too short to box with god...)

    [Killah Priest]
    Devils morale, they caught us playing with the gold marbles
    we wrote novels, now we live life in the bottle, before the devil sold me
    to the unholy, because my father told me
    I lived like a monks of lowly, lowly, but lowly?
    the president just ordered the navy to hit the borders of Haiti
    slaughtered babies from the waters of Euphrates
    maybe they send germs that polluted our sperm
    and made us live with circumcize in the serpent eyes
    and told us certain lies, and each day a servant dies
    but in the halls of Farrow the walls are narrow
    and religion is like a prison for the seekers of wisdom
    now free them, lets feed um', feed um'...
    they took the first book of Jacob to Jamaica
    promised us 40 achers and a mule, treated like an animal
    understand the jewel, brought to the 50 states
    deuteronomy 28, verse 68, it all relates, 1555 is when we first arrived
    we tell jokes wish um' get high, and watch the fish fry...

    [Chorus]

    [Outro: Tekitha]
    One Step...
    One, One, Step, Step
    One, One, Flesh
    One, One, Step..
    One, One, Breath...
    One.. Step....
    One... Step...

    Intro/Chorus

    It goes: life, difficult times, and mad crimes
    Some pay the price, while others refine
    Blessed are those who struggle -- God loves you
    And Wisdom is the principle thing for Kings and Queens
    (repeat 2X)

    Many alliance will end, it's like a sad song
    from a violin, trapped like Daniel's in the Lion's Den
    Tryin to pie-rce the iron skin, of Leviathan
    Souls blowin in the violent winds
    God help us, if we die in sign, I hear the trials
    in the cries of men, that's when the riot begins
    Like things never get better, we forever
    servin Nebuchadnezzar, since the days of our ancestors
    Slaves to a mad pleasure, building great architectures
    Sharp dressers, smart professors
    Start my lecture, I build lyrics like a art director
    Show it to you like the film projector
    Blessed are those who struggle, from day to day we all hustle
    Comin home with sore muscles, and scarred faces
    Scuffed knuckles, we all share the same trouble
    Seperated couples, sometimes it seem like
    there's no escapin, the clutches of Satan
    Spendin years in state pens, awaitin patient
    Dreams of a scholarship, ended by a hollowtip
    Politics and number slip

    Chorus

    Once, shoved in ships, now we Bloods and Crips
    Thugs with clips, niggaz who love the clicks
    Hit the clubs and shit, so they can rub their hips
    Hugs and flicks, niggaz with drugs and whips
    Cash Rules this Rotten Apple, they got a worm in it
    Corrupt sinners, in my man's jeep
    with the windows tinted, sippin Guinness
    Observin all the clinics, and liquor spots
    They make me lick a shot through the rooftop
    I never seen the glory
    In the ghetto it's the same story
    Ciggarette butts and cold coffee, black faces
    and white mouths, they cry out, for the White House
    Ain't no wealth shared, it's welfare
    and poor health care, self scared
    It's senseless, the way they got our black princess
    on public assistance to end our existance

    Chorus

    It's a blessing... to struggle
    It's a blessing...
    (repeat 2X)
    Yeahhyeahhh, it's a blessing, just a blessing
    It's a blessing... *fades*

    The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (3X)

    Chorus: repeat 2X

    Life is a test many quest the universe
    And through my research, I felt the joy and the hurt
    The first shall be last and the last shall be first
    The basic instructions before leaving earth

    Verse One:

    Knowledge this wisdom, this goes back when I was twelve
    I loved doing right but I was trapped in hell
    Had mad ideas, sad eyes and tears
    Years of fears, but yo my foes couldn't bear
    I searched for the truth since my youth
    And went to church since birth, but it wasn't worth the loot
    that I was paying, plus the praying
    I didn't like staying cuz of busy-bodies and dizzy hotties
    That the preacher had souped up with lies
    Had me cooped up lookin at loot, butt, and thighs
    Durin the service, he swallowed up the poor
    And after they heard this, they wallowed on the floor
    But I ignored, and explored my history that was untold
    And watched mysteries unfold
    And dropped a jewel like Solomon, but never followed men
    cause if you do your brain is more hollow than
    Space oblivia, or the abyss
    With no trace of trivia, left with the hiss
    Does it pay to be deaf, dumb and blind?
    From a slave we was kept from the mind
    And from the caves he crept from behind
    And what he gave, was the sect of the swine
    When the bible, it condemned the pig
    I don't mean to pull your hems or flip your wigs
    But we used to wear a turban, but now we're in the urban
    No more wearing beanies and dress like a genie
    No hocus pocus cause I focus on the facts
    And put it on the tracks and brought it through the wax
    I speak on Jacob, it might take up some time
    And too much knowledge, it might break up the rhyme
    I did it anyway just to wake up the mind
    of those who kiss stones or prays on the carpet
    Those who sit home, or sell books by the market
    Need to chill and get their mind revived
    For years religion did nothing but divide
    The basic instructions before leaving earth

    Chorus

    Verse Two:

    I strolled through the books of Job to unfold
    And open bibles, instead of hoping on revivals
    Calling on His name and screaming hallelujah
    when he hardly knew ya, that's how the devil's fooled ya
    See look into my eyes brethren, that's the lies of a Reverand
    Why should you die to go to heaven?
    The Earth is already in space, the bible I embrace
    A difficult task I had to take
    I studied till my eyes was swollen, and only arose when
    I found out that we were the chosen
    I deal with the truth, and build with the youth
    And teach my son as he kneels on the stoop
    Son, life is a pool of sin, corrupted with foolish men
    and women with wicked minds, who build picket signs
    to legalize abortion, the evil eye distortion
    I quiz Son with my wisdom
    Before I converted, I was perverted, and knowledge was asserted
    The study of wisdom, I perferred it
    The understanding, it gave me mental freedom
    I even learnt Caucasians were really the Tribe of Edam
    The white image, of Christ, is really Cesare Borgia
    and uhh, the second son of Pope Alexander
    The Sixth of Rome, and once the picture was shown
    That's how the devils tricked my dome
    I prophesized to save a man, but no one gave a damn
    for my nation - the seed of Abraham
    Blessed with the tongue of Hebrew
    Now we're strung on needles, and some are plungin evils
    So study and be wise in these days of darkness
    Peace to my nephew Marcus

    GZA on Shadowboxin:

    "Amplified sample through vacuum tubes compression,
    Cause RZA to charge niggas 20 G's per sesssion"

    What a way to describe your producer's bangin beats

    This is what 50 would say:

    "Dre's bangin beats get all the ho's to shakes they asses"

    The difference is clear

    good comparison^!!!

    killah priest drops some awesome shit

    one step and bible are his best 'wu associated' shit for me

    i love his verse on gem stars too

    [Killah Priest]
    My rhymes a guideline, for political thugs and O.G.'s
    Who blows trees in front of authorities, like giving a fuck
    Revolvers will squeeze, regardless to the warrants you read
    Trauma we bleed, before they put our wrists in them cuffs
    I sit in the cut, like I'm sixty two, and next Panther
    Narrator, screen writer for niggaz in handcuffs
    Gangstas are freedom fighters doing life in the slammers
    Where the strangers take advantage, when they tie bananas
    And I thank you, what the knife til we collide with them hammers
    Phantoms, they talk before we sell them
    Cats yell from they gut, the shells come and their skeleton struck
    How I survive that four/five, well I tell 'em it's luck
    Fellas erupt, at chow time, shots heard from a loud nine
    Fitted turbans, we feast and beneath her loud signs
    I don't care, we cripple you blood
    When cops come, get rid of them drugs
    For revolution, grab that mask, pistol and glove
    This is the love, black oils richer than blood
    I'm sick of the grudge, between vice laws and G.D.'s
    Latin Kings and Mieta's, it's that real shit, that hood lecture

    street, revolutionary knowledge

    most gza shit is good from pre 2000

    "keep it brief son, half short twice strong"

    i think kids already killed this though

    the line in the killah Priest verse from gem stars should be "we feast underneath halal signs"

    halal = muslim equivalent of 'kosher'
