Start Somethin'

This song is by The Cross Movement, features Phanatik and appears on the album Holy Culture (2003) and on the Compilation Soul Vibe 2004 (2004).

C'mon, stand up. Get your hands up.
Word up
Start something, get your heart pumpin'
Yeah, start jumpin' around if you're under the ground
I know you're down with this thunderous sound

C'mon, stand up. Get your hands up.
Word up
Start jumpin', get your heart pumpin'
Start something.
Why? The world needs what you have
Back to the lab 'til you master your craft. This is it.

Phanatik:
I'm out to destroy this track, ya boy is back
Who would think gospel tactics would employ rap
But since I know heads will enjoy that
I'll rock it 'til the wheels fall off like a Benz or Jag
See, if I never get dough like, "Whoa!"
It's cool just to know I never sold my soul
My goal is to get souls, not to go gold
And get answers to shorty before she's dancing go-go
And to talk to boy before they call the po-po
Or he ends up in the morgue with a tag on his toe
See, if they can talk about cash and trash in their raps
Then we can talk about snatching cats out of traps!
That's set for your soul, let's see it and roll
'Til we end up in our heavenly home
Who cares about how much or whether we've blown
It's not man but by God that's best to be known

C'mon, stand up. Get your hands up.
Word up
Start something, get your heart pumpin'
Yeah, start jumpin' around, if you're under the ground
I know you're down with this thunderous sound

C'mon, stand up. Get your hands up.
Word up
Start jumpin', get your heart pumpin'
Start something.
Why? The world needs what you have
Back to the lab 'til you master your craft. This is it.

Phanatik:
It's time to strike up the band, rise up and stand
And draw lines in the stands of time
We stand behind what we believe in following God
Whole squad ready to die like Stephen
Whether put to death or put to test
Beef with God? Better put it to rest!
What we kick will leave an imprint like a foot to the chest
With truth that'll shoot through your bullet proof vest
Watch out He's venting-no! He's vintage, like aged wine
A sage with rhyme sentence
But since man at his core is mad hard to reach
We know the Lord is using more than just parts of speech
Paragraphs paired up to smash
He'll bring the heat open up air ducts and shafts
Who can last in the smoldering heat?
When He throws the cold shoulder at His judgement seat?
Huh? The very breath that we breathe and every gift we receive
Is in the palm of His hand with no tricks up His sleeve
Isn't that a relief? So sit back in your seat
Kick up your feet take it in and take it back to the streets

C'mon, stand up. Get your hands up.
Word up
Start something, get your heart pumpin'
Yeah, start jumpin' around, if you're under the ground
I know you're down with this thunderous sound

C'mon, stand up. Get your hands up.
Word up
Start jumpin', get your heart pumpin'
Start something.
Why? The world needs what you have
Back to the lab 'til you master your craft. This is it.

Phanatik:
I'm in the eye of the storm, high above norm
Before the Most High when I perform
An audience of One watching
One chair, one stare hoping He's still there when I'm done rockin'
And if He's there then I hope that He's pleased with me
This is not done easily, I cook mics, but the rhyme books that I write
Changed since the Father's aim is to see Jesus Christ look-a-likes
So the more like the Son that Phanatik becomes
That's less laps around the track that I have to run
New character sprung, old habits get shunned
Now we're having some fun, too bad 'cause now the tracks' done!
