The Lyrics Are Below

Linkin Park

Step Up


Watch as the room rocks

Mentally moonwalk

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

And 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? (2x)

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

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)


Chorus (2x)


(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, and the question must be asked.)


Chorus (2x)
