   mos def:
i-ah
i against i
flesh of my flesh
and mind of my mind
two of a kind but one won't survive
my images reflect in the enemies eye
and his images reflect in mine the same time
i-ah, i-ah
i against i
flesh of my flesh
and mind of my mind
two of a kind but one won't survive
right here's where the end gon' start at
conflict, contact, combat
fighters stand where the land is marked at
settle the dispute about who the livliest
three word answer
whoever survive this
only one of us can ride forever
so you and i cant ride together
can't live or can't die together
all we can do is collide together
so i skillfully apply the pressure
won't stop until i'm forever... one
a door step where death never come
spread across time til my time never done
and i'm never done
walk tall, why ever run?
when they move if i ever come
bad man never fret the war, i tell'em come
general we have the stock, the mad fire burn
i-ah
i against i
flesh of my flesh
and mind of my mind
two of a kind but one won't survive
my images reflect in the enemies eye
and his images reflect in mine the same time
i-ah, i-ah
i against i
flesh of my flesh
and mind of my mind
two of a kind but one won't survive
survive, (survive), survive, (survive), etc
reign supreme in your U. N. I.
V. E. R. S. E. with the sharpness
narrow row building no space for partners
no space for drivers, no space for walkers
no space regardless
your on my path then get off it
hardheaded and unresponsive
get they lives put on target with harshness
come with the cannons sparkin' they darken
who am i? one man squadron
most of the fire this time that'd snatch your tomorrow
the thousand yard spear that'll pierce through your armor
you can get it on right now if you want to
but when ya front nine get marched through
i warned you
you know who forever belong to
i-ah, i-ah
i against i
flesh of my flesh
and mind of my mind
two of a kind but one won't survive
my images reflect in the enemies eye
and his images reflect in mine the same time
i-ah, i-ah
i against i
flesh of my flesh
and mind of my mind
two of a kind but one won't survive
my images reflect in the enemies eye
and his images reflect in mine, survive
survive, (survive), survive, (survive), etc
