Lyrics

Do the impossible! See the invisible!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
Touch the untouchable! Break the unbreakable!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
What you gonna do is what you wanna do,
Just break the rule, and you see the truth, uh-huh,
This is theme of the "G" coming through baby!
Row! Row! Fight the power!

Power to the peeps, power for the dream,
Still missing piece scatterings, so incomplete.
We be the most incredible soldiers from underground,
See how easy they all fall down.
Digging through the core to see the light,
Let's get out of here, babe, that's the way to survive!
Yeah, top of the head, I'm on the set,
Do the impossible, don't you wanna bet?
'cuz a lot of things changed, we be waiting in vain,
If you wanna get by, no pain, no gain.
Wow! Fakers wanna test me again?
Sorry, my rhyme's gonna snatch your brain, yo!
I'm still struggling for some straight-up skill,
We're gonna make it a-happen with our crazy rap skill!
Get ready to rumble, now be the time, uh-huh,
If you ain't know, now you know.

(Good luck, fellas!)

Do the impossible! See the invisible!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
Touch the untouchable! Break the unbreakable!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
What you gonna do is what you wanna do,
Just break the rule, and you see the truth, uh-huh,
This is theme of the "G" coming through baby!
Row! Row! Fight the power!

Second verse is dedicated to the real peeps,
What we got to say is so real thing, 'cuz,
Revolution ain't never gonna televise,
Kicking the mad flow, microphone phenotype!
Open your third eye, seeing through the overground!
I'm about to hit you with the scream from the underground!
Whole city is covered with the cyber flavor,
"G" is in your area, one of the toughest enigma!

Do the impossible! See the invisible!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
Touch the untouchable! Break the unbreakable!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
What you gonna do is what you wanna do,
Just break the rule, and you see the truth, uh-huh,
This is theme of the "G" coming through baby!
Row! Row! Fight the power!

Do the impossible! See the invisible!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
Touch the untouchable! Break the unbreakable!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
What you gonna do is what you wanna do,
Just break the rule, and you see the truth, uh-huh,
This is theme of the "G" coming through baby!
Row! Row! Fight the power!
