1 Fallin' Up

Watch me (fallin up)
Watch me (fallin up)
Watch me (fallin up high)
Watch me

Focus on this the introductionist,
Or a lyrisist in this rap metropolis,
More like an activist,
We give it to you all,
Presentation we'll make you have a ball,
Styles start consiveing causeing you to meditate,
Manipulate the mind with hypnotic modern state,
We far from the fakes,
We never fake moves,
But jealous mothaf**kas since the justice approves, (and talk shit)
And who the hell he be havin a fit,
Yo, he ain't got shit,
That's why he's in crips,
And I indelirize bodily rips,
Skiznits of nonsense nothing less than bullshit, (west side)
And who can hang with the all around remainders,
A real entertainer,
We bout to open up the whole true hip hop,
Explore non-stop,
Entertain ya till we drop,

[chorus]
We be fallin up (up)
Never fallin down (down)
We keep it at a higher level elevating now,
(put it in your) in your area,
(city or your) town,
Blackeyed peas is known for gettin down
[x2]

Flip the four steps it takes to be great,
There's no remorse for a fake we must break,
Time a rap source subdue what we make(a)
Your collaps is all the floor can take,
Witness the peas as we innovate,
We'll extrodanite,expose,instillate,
Patterning pioners take foes by thier trait,
Apple in tact is the time we must take,
When we make agreements theres no escape,
Form it,hate it, love it, rate it as great,
God gave us talent,
We show how that we create,
Enough of being deep it's time to motivate,

[chorus]

Watch me,
Watch me,

I see you try to diss our function by stating that we can't
rap,
Is it cause we don't wear tommy hilfiger or baseball caps,
We don't use dollars to represent,
We just use our inner sense and talent,
If you try to diss the peas you'll get handled by apple beavy,
(guy in back growling like a lion)
Alligator,
A numernumer creator,
Black eyed peas be more than a playa,
Don't gotta represent no set just so I could get some respect,
Ga ga ga ga ga ga cooooool,
A lot of feelings so I can get through,
Because the way that you did it I think that you done curupted
the whole
Hip-hop sound so now I gotta follow up,

[chorus]

So put your hands together now we ready to bounce
Got the whole world waiting for this, to be announced

And they watchy-watchy-wah, uh-ah, uh-ah

Recite more poetic, a tactic from the attic
Apl de ap, gets critical and droppin? shit
Like a dimensional picture
You architect, so I free you to get the scripture
But when it hit ya, I got you turning like elixir
Back a glass of coniac, we divide the mixture
I?m about to fix you up, with a new texture
More information better down like a letter
And in the sector

Chorus

Turn that shit up, play it again [3x]

[Will I Am]
I like the way the rhythm makes me jump and move
It gots the feelin' that makes me wanna do my do
Got me feelin' joy, turn my grey sky blue
And when you hear a cut baby doll I know you
Will feel it huh? Get up on the floor start movin' some
Body parts that got brothers actin' dumb
And they be actin' dumb from the cut that playin'
People break they neck from this demonstration
We about mass appeal, no segregation
Got Black to Asian and Caucasian sayin'...

[CHORUS (2x)]

[Apldap]
Let your body collide to the rhythm provided
By the mind state affairs classified and make your
Heat up and flare I swear
A serenade, a soul and so beware
And what's happenin' here, seek one to help you
Feelin' a piece of mind, let your spine unwind
Maybe in time you can stop this crime
But until then, yo I'm-a rock a rhyme sayin'...

[CHORUS (2x)]

[BRIDGE]
It's the jam, it's the jam, it's the jam, it's the jam

[Taboo]
Got the state's appeal with the joint's that real
I don't need no steel to make my point
Get down and dirty cuz that's my joint
Ha! We preferably make all points
Through a nation we build off the musical field
Or a visual thrill, we do what we feel
Any time or place, on stage in ya face
Over tea in Earth and outer space

[Will I Am]
Because we rock that *shit*, we flip that *shit*
Some east coast west coast cosmic *shit*
Some north bound *shit*, some some south bound *shit*
Some overseas London out of town *shit*

5 Movement

There's electricity in here
With enough watts to shock the southern hemisphere
I put a surge in your city with my lyrics in the air
Shock hazardous, take caution and beware
Of high bolts and killer hertz, lyrics will kill, they hurt
Blast those, my energy's converted to a rhyme
I maximize in no time
Electrify the sky and go way be over now, uh
Just an MC, I'm not your average MC
I do more than MC, that's what suckers envy, and E
And every movement contains concepts that ain't nobody doin
Come over these dramas or whack, and dirty
They tryin to call me, perform track quality
Give me some punts, 'cause you really muddy
You move slowly 'cause of no electricity
I got my shit on overflow
When I ever find you, my overload
Oh, overflow
I got my shit on overflow (Overflow)

The whole globe's gonna feel the effect of the
Movement (Movement)
Movement (Yo DC, London, Tokyo, feel the wrath of the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement (LA, help me turn it out, it's the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement
(We gonna keep your party jumpin while your heart is steady
thumpin to the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement

We grip the pleasure from small things
Not from a Lex nor diamond rings
I just wanna crib in they studios set
Build my enterprise connection projects
Cover all angles and higher your aspects
Break more barriers than new concepts
'Cause what they can't stop me, no way
The time is now, we ain't got time to play
Hey, you, listen to what I got to say
Let's get together and form a parade
Just delete what you create over plates
Make sure it's measured the right way
With the right ingredients, construct more devient
Things to prosper for your brain to capture
Now what I'm after is to learn from all things
Building full swing, no strings
You got me thinking about things that I don't need to think
about
You wanna change my appearance for the masters, scope me out
Undress me, then rearrange me
Yo I can't go for that (No...)

The whole globe's gonna feel the effect of the
Movement (Movement)
Movement (Yo DC, London, Tokyo, feel the wrath of the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement (C'mon, New York, help me turn it out, it's the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement
(We gonna keep your party jumpin while your heart is steady
thumpin to the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement (Movement)
We got the
Movement (Movement)
Movement (Movement)

You gotta jump back, jump inside BEP music
Shake what your mama gave you, don't abuse
If you abuse it, come change the music
If it's the bomb, no need to diffuse it
Let us demonstrate the real court and nation
While we improvise, giving you time and sensation
Mastering the art of motivation
Musically we're in touch with our creation
Takin over land, and we takin over nation
Family reunite, cause for celebration
Gotta find us on your channel, find us on your station
We bring the movement of Black Eyed Peas-ilation

The whole globe's gonna feel the effect of the
Movement (Movement)
Movement (Yo DC, London, Tokyo, feel the wrath of the)
Movement (Movement)
Movement (C'mon, Japan, help me turn it out, it's the)

6 Karma

Yeah, yeah
Watch out

Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running
Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running

[Repeat]

I'm the caboose of the wrong doings you produce
The wild tail of the tornado running loose
You tie the noose, I kick the chair
I'm the cinai that snatch your life while you gasp for air
The echo of the "F**k you" that boomerangs to hurt your loved
ones
The thief that held your son, held by ransom
The pervert that raped your wife
The hand that held the knife that took your life
You shot Tupac and Biggie
Now I'm coming after you like V-W-X-Y-Z
This is cause and effect, the dominal effect
The "What goes up, must come down" effect
You hopin, though, that you had a hand in doin the doin
The conclusion of the evil that you ended and start pursuing

Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running
Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running

[Repeat]

This is the payback from the past
You threw me down like I was just a piece of trash
You gave me cash every week just enough to live
But didn't get what I deserved instead I was deceived
Still young and didn't know about this in the street
Of the acts, so crass and shady
Don't crush your dreamshow and your whole entity
Subliminally you're on the hire from a slavery
Remember that "What goes around, comes around"
God is watching you and evrything that you do
Do you remember everything that you did before
The way the bad action opens cosmic door
I'ma leave it up to God what he got for you
I'ma leave it up to Him what he got for me
And he's watching you

Yeah, yeah
Watch out

Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running
Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running

[Repeat]

Yeah, yeah, you can't run away (No, no, no)
You know, it's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
And don't ignore it (No, no, no)
You know why, it's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah, you can't run away (No, no, no)
It's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Don't ignore it (No, no, no)
It's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

'Cause one way or another
It's gonna find ya
It's gonna get ya-get ya-get ya-get ya
One way or another
It's gonna find ya
It's gonna get ya-get ya-get ya-get ya
One way or another
It's gonna find ya
It's gonna get ya-get ya-get ya-get ya
One way or another
It's gonna find ya
It's gonna get ya-get ya-get ya-get ya

Yeah, yeah, nigga

Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running
Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running

[Repeat]

Yeah, yeah
Watch out

Can't run away (No, no, no)
It's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Don't ignore it (No, no, no)
It's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
You can't run away (No, no, no)
It's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Don't ignore it (No, no, no)
It's gonna get ya (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running
Ain't no running from
Karma, and no running

[Repeat]

Yeah, yeah, good God


7 Be Free

BEP, I know you feel it, huh [4x]

Oh my goodness, I know you feel the vibration
Across the globe no matter your location
Ain't no difficulty or complication
Just as long my niggas in the celebration
Celebrated the musical liberation
The Peas then demonstrated the demonstration
And you will feel the flush of relaxation
I'ma wax these and then get heavy rotation
I got you in bliss and ain't no aggrevation
When you bump us, we bring the stimulation
So hurry up and get your daily fixation
But make sure that it's handled, it's a moderation
One dose should bring you to a limitation
So put your back into it, baby, that's right, huh
I'm about to plug in some dedication
This goes out to my brothers and my coalition

[Chorus:]

All I want is to be free
You keep pushin up on me
All I want is to be free
You be you let I'll be me
Let me do what I feel inside
Won't get taken for a ride
Do just what I feel inside
Everything will be alright [5x]

Oh my goodness, it's obvious now you feelin me
Envious niggas plan on killing me
Frontin on my niggas and also my family
Fienin for my capability, it's tragedy
My technicalities die hard like battery
Try to cross us, I blast 'cause you flattin me
You oughta be on something like PCP
To come against a crew like BEP (Oh my goodness)
Oh no you didn't try to contest me
Come out delivery, won't control your body
I'm breakin down ya'll mathematically
Yes mentally, physically and spiritually
Actually, I'm rippin your anatomy
'Cause literally you be in the cemetery
I'm about to throw a shout-out to my peeps
Dedicated to the DJ's that pump it in their streets

[Chorus]

Whip it good like DeVoe we whip it good
You understand (Yo man, it's understood)
We be winnin tournaments like Tigerwoods
Openin your suburbs and bump it in your hood
Rock it in your box or your hooptie-hoop
Bump it in your hot beamer 850 coupe
'Cause I'ma inform y'all on what to do
Hop in your ride and drive down in your avenue
It's bumpin in your barbeque and your venue
At a journey, feelin that ease, is why I sent you
'Cause ain't no stoppin this, stoppin it
'Cause we be rockin it (Rock, rock, rock)

Yeah, yeah, yeah [8x]

[Chorus]

Gather up the team, now we ready to go
Any minute we'll be all over your box and video
Niggas wanna stop me and my amigos
But we still roll all over your accapella goes
Leave it or this one here like meteor
Your mediocre scene, you feel the roar
Vibration that's headed for your store
For a change, not bragging about close to more
Instead brain fusion, I lace you up confusion
Relax and feel the groove it's the solution
We straight cruisin while the beat is still cruisin
You're here so clap your hand to what we're doin

[Chorus]

Whip it good
