Just do something to tell you who I am, ya know?

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh (Yeah)
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh (It's high voltage you can't shake the shock)
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh (Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out)

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

I've been talking into crates ever since I was living in space
Before the rat-race, before monkeys had human traits (hoo hoo hoo)
Mastered numerology and Big Bang theology
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I could start blessin' it
And chin-checking kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords to double helixes and show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces
Cast the spell of intrumental-ness on all of the emcees that hate us
So try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity let icons be bygones
I fire-bomb, ghostly notes haunt this
I've tried threats but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice (Mixed media)
The stamp of approval that's on this

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

(Akira)
Put a kink in the backbones of clones with microphones
Never satisfy my rhyme jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
Blood type: Krylon, Technicolor type A
On highways right with road rage
On pages of wind and cages of tin that bounce all around
Surround sound, devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings
Overall the same things
Sing song karaoke copy madness
Break bones verbally with sticks and stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the tracks stand at attention (Attention)
Meant to put you away with the pencil-pistol, official 16-line rhyme missile
While you risk your all I pick out of your flaws
Spittin' "rah blah blah blah"
You can say you saw

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh (High voltage)
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh (High voltage)
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh (High voltage)
Uh uh uh uh uh (High voltage)

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
