1999
C'mon (Keep)
Yeah, y'all (Keep steppin')
Uh
Let's go (Huh...) (Keep steppin')
How many of y'all R ready 2 get this party on? (Keep steppin')
1999 & this is how we do it, look out (Keep keep)

Yo, Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin' (Uh)
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
The time's 2 close, son, U better start checkin' it
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin' (C'mon)
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
(U know what, y'all?)
The time's 2 close, son, U better start checkin' it
(Yo, U know what?)

make it hot like a toaster
Roll like a coaster
Family mourn cuz they wanna C the dawn (Uh)
Sat as they sweat, feenin & drama
But not the kinda of drama 2 run & tell ur mama
Armageddon headin', mass destruction
Conjunction junction, what's ur function?
The war's goin' on inside while U lunchin'
Computers replaced U
Take a reduction
U made a mistake, boo
But take a deduction
Ur money is worthless
U'r hungry & nervous
U feel like feel
That U don't deserve this
Inside U learn this, get super deeper
Heaven is inside & U'r the gatekeeper
Hell is inside & U'r the Grim Reaper
Livin' costs more, dyin' cost cheaper
Whatever U do, son, don't B a sleeper

Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin'
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
The time's 2 close, son, U better start checkin'
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin'
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
The time's 2 close, son, U better start checkin'

The truth
Some people hear it, some people fear it
The truth
Some people just won't go near it
As sure as 'm me & the skies R blue (Woo)
The truth is the key 2 unlock the true U
Ancient old worth more than gold (Yeah)
Cannot B bought, cannot B sold
Cannot B pushed, cannot B lift
& 'm tellin' U
U got a whole lot 2 deal with
N this world of all diverse
Like U used 2 talk proper but now U curse
The sun used 2 shine from day 2 day
Now the whole universe is filled with gray
No friends, children, family, nor wife
& disrespect is the way of life
U wanna go, say no
Don't need no airfare
Just open ur eyes & then U'r there (Keep steppin')
& if U go, come right & exact
& remember, there's no way back (Keep steppin')
So close ur eyes, live N hate & despise (Keep steppin')
All those girls & all those guys (Keep steppin')
Who told U, U never had stars N ur eyes?
This is ur destiny - rise, uh

Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin'
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
The time's 2 close, son, U better start checkin'
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin'
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
The time's 2 close, son, U better start checkin', uh

Keep, keep
'Luminati, y'all, move ur body, y'all
Keep steppin'
'Luminati, y'all, move ur body, y'all
Keep, keep, keep steppin'
If U know the truth, then pass it on
If U know the truth, then raise the roof
If U know the truth, pass it on
If U know the truth, raise the roof
If U know the truth, pass it on
If U know the truth, raise the roof
If U know the truth, pass it on
If U know the truth, raise the roof, c'mon

Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon ('Luminati, y'all)
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin' (Move ur body, y'all, c'mon)
Keep steppin'
Get down
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin'
Yeah (Keep steppin', keep steppin')
'Luminati, y'all, move ur body, y'all, c'mon
Armageddon is headin', lethal rap weapon
1-9-9-9, people keep steppin'
Keep steppin'
Keep...
Keep steppin' {repeat}
