    Black Thought]
    Get 'em up high - okay, yeah

    Go all-star, and get down for yours
    To the ladies in the house, be proud of yours
    You got the, Roots crew with the sound of course
    High, lift 'em up high, okay

    [Black Thought]
    When that adrenaline get in they system
    It get 'em out on a quest for stardom, could be a motherfuckin problem
    in Philly, Cincinatti, Los Angeles or Harlem
    Kids call theyself killers let they hammers do the talkin
    Don't even know the meaning of life, ain't seen a thing
    and you dream of floodin the scenery with, llello and greenery
    But for now, you stickin her with the heavy machinery
    Wonder how, you lift it up, be only 17
    And like e'rybody he wanna shine, young brothers on the grind
    Holdin somethin in they spine, "Bowling for Columbine"
    Stressin to me how it's all about a dollar sign
    Dig the way you out of line, out of sight and out of mind
    Up against the clock and damn near out of time
    "The Tipping Point" has arrived, and that's the bottom line
    To all my peoples that's stars, it's our time to shine
    Let's get 'em up high, c'mon

    [Chorus - 2X]

    [Black Thought]
    Yo, ain't it strange how the newspapers play with the language
    I'm deprogrammin y'all with uncut slang shit
    I know some peoples in the party armed and dangerous
    Twist some cool champagne, I'm goin through changes
    A grown-ass man, I done paid my dues
    Learn the rules lil' homey, you could be one too
    Niggaz know, ain't no tellin what he gon' do
    But recognize young bruh, I'ma do it for you
    You know why? We all stars and we highly evolved
    Hip-Hop, it's not pop like Kylie Minogue
    If it bang, them gettin-busy brothers probably involved
    In the game, where e'rybody got a shottie to draw
    I guess you probably a thug, you boss ballin or what?
    I can't call it man, I got the ladies fallin in love
    Cause handsome, intelligent, tough - I'm all the above
    I know you knew it it's the movement
    Groove to it while you doin it up

    [Chorus - 2X w/ minor variations]

    [Black Thought]
    Introducin the band you gotta see to believe
    He got the mic in his hand, so keep the heat up your sleeve
    It's Black Thought, he rockin sharp so the speakers'll bleed
    I run a triathalon, you wouldn't see me fatigued
    I'm a star, and maybe y'all should cop somethin to be
    Or trade some of y'all equipment in for somethin you need
    Cause it's a, lot of bullshit floodin the scene
    Where e'rybody's a star, and hot shit is few and far between
    We lose the grip of what, garbage mean
    Shorties wanna be theyself, I know it's hard to be
    Don't wanna do the Ruben Studdard and come off less threatenin
    Keepin it real'll kill you if you end up lettin it
    Ain't it blowin your mind how the game all in line
    Now the best, to the rest, we fin' to end up settin it
    I'd tell you that I was a veteran but it's evident
    You act like you want it, you gon' end up gettin it

    [Chorus - 3X w/ minor variations]

    "Everybody is a star.."

    [echoes and fades into an instrumental that ends the song]
