u are now in tune to the sounds
of the legendary foundation
Testin, yo, you go
(Hey u listeners, stop what u're doin and
set it in motion, it's the next movement x2

Yo, 1 2 1-2 1-2
That's how we usually start, 1ce again it's the Thought
The Dalai Lama of the mic, the prime minister Thought
This directed to whoever in listening range
Yo the whole state of things in the world bout to change
Black rain fallin from the sky look strange
The ghetto is red hot, we steppin on flames
Yo, it's inflation on the price for fame
and it was all the same, but then the antidote came
The Black Thought, ill syllablist, out the Fifth
This heavyweight rap shit I'm about to lift
LIKE, a phyllum lift up it's seed to sunlight
I plug in the mic, draw like a gunfight
I never use a cordless, or stand applaudless
Sippin cholorophyll out of ill silver goblets
I'm like a faucet, monopoly's the object
There ain't no way to cut this tap, u got ta get wet
ur head is throbbin and I ain't said shit yet
The Roots crew, the next movement, c'mon!
Word up, the formation of words to fit
That's what I usually disturb u with
A lot of rappers never heard of this, or know half the time it is
u doubt the Illa-Fifth, what could u accomplish?
Whether they skywriting ur name, or u anonymous
u be speechless, with stinging sinuses
The Roots royal highnesses through ur monitors
I tilt my crown, then blow down a diamond kiss
u need to buy a CD and stop rewindin this
I'm the finalist, shinin like a rugged amethyst
And at ur music conference, I'm the panelist
Listen close to my poetry, I examine this
like an analyst, to see if u can handle this
Check it out
u got the groove, MCs
freeze, stand still, nobody move
unless u dealin with The Next Movement
The P-Phi-D we be the mon-u-ment
I live my life nice, but I'm not too bent
u theatrical as a Broadway play, this ain't Rent
One 100%, straight out the Basement
Spreadin this across a planet on some next shit
How many people feelin this love music? C'mon
