    [Intro]

    (Method Man)

    I breaks it down to the bone gristle
    Ill speaking Scud missile heat seeking
    Johnny Blazing, nightmares like Wes Craven
    Niggaz gunnin', my third eye seen it coming
    Before it happen
    You know about them fucking Staten
    Kids they smashin'
    Everything huh, in any shape form or fashion
    Now everybody talking bout they blastin', hmmm
    Is you bustin' steel or is you flashin? Hmmm
    Talkin out your assHOLE
    You shoulda learnt about the flow and peezy afro
    Ticallion stallion, chinky eye and snot nosed
    From my naps to the bunion on my big toe
    I keeps it movin', know just what the fuck I'm doin'
    Rap insomniac, fiend to catch a nigga snoozing
    Slip the cardiac arrest me, Excorcist hip-hop possess me
    Crunch a nigga like a Nestle, you know my STEEZ
    burning to the third degree, sneaky ass alley cat top pedigree
    The head toucher, industry party bum rusher
    You don't like it dick up in ya fuck ya

    *allow me to demonstrate* That's right, you corny-ass
    *the skill of Shaolin* rap motherfuckers
    *The special technique* Better go back and check
    *of shadowboxing* your fuckin stacks
    *Shadowboxing* Cause your naps ain't nappy enough
    And your reefs ain't rugged enough
    Bitch

    (GZA)

    I slayed MC's back in the rec room era
    My style broke motherfuckin' backs like Ken Patera
    Most rap niggaz came loud but unheard
    Once I pulled out, round em off to the nearest third
    Check these non visual niggaz, with tapes and a portrait
    Flood the seminar, tryin' to orbit this corporate
    industry, but what them niggaz can't see
    must break through like the Wu, unexpectedly
    Protect Ya Neck, my sword still remain imperial
    Before I blast the mic, RZA scratch off the serial
    We reign all year round from June to June
    While niggaz bite immediately if not soon
    Set the lynchin, and form the execution date
    As this two thousand beyond slang suffocate
    Amplify sample through vacuum tubes compressions
    cause RZA, to charge niggaz twenty G's a session

    (Method Man)

    When my mind start to clickin', and the strategy
    is mastered the plot thickens, this be that Wu shit
    I don't give a cotton-pickin' FUCK
    about a brother tryin' to size a nigga up, I hold my own
    Hard-hat protect your dome
    Look at mama baby boy actin' like he grown
    No time for sleep, I gets deep as a baritone
    Killa bee, that be holdin' down his honeycomb, loungin' son
    Wu brother number one, protect your neck
    Flying guillotines here they come, bloody bastards
    Hard times and killer tactics, spittin' words plus
    semi-automatic slurs, peep the graphic
    novel from the genie bottle, hit the clutch
    shift the gear now, full throttle, time to bungee
    To the next episode, I keeps it grungy
    Hand on my nutsack, and spittin' lungies
    At a wack nigga dat, don't understand the fact
    When it come to RZA tracks I don't know how to act
    Real rap from the Stat, killa hill projects
    How to be exact, break it down
    All and together now
    Things are getting good looking better now

    [outro]

    *Allow me to demonstrate the skill of Shaolin*
    *Sha-shadowboxing, the special technique of shadowboxing*
    *Shadowboxing*

    Absolute classic, my thoughts can be summed up in GZA's first 4 lines

    I slayed MC's back in the rec room era
    My style broke motherfuckin' backs like Ken Patera
    Most rap niggaz came loud but unheard
    Once I pulled out, round em off to the nearest third

    This song is no less than a classic, one of the best Wu tracks I've ever heard.
