Lyrics

Too black, too strong, too black, too strong
Too black, too strong, too strong, too strong
Too black, too strong, too black, too strong
Too black, too strong, too strong, too strong
(Choir: Obstruuuuuct)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Too black (wrapped in black), too strong (wrapped in black)
Too black (wrapped in black), too strong (wrapped in black)
Too black (wrapped in black), too strong (wrapped in black)
Too black (wrapped in black), too strong (wrapped in black)
(Choir: Obstruuuuuct)
Too black (wrapped in black), too strong (wrapped in black)
Too black (wrapped in black), too strong (wrapped in black)
Too black, too strong, too black, too strong
Too black, too strong, too strong, too strong
Too black, too black, too black, too black
Too black, black, black, black
Too-too-too-too-too-too-too
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
(wrapped in black) Wrapped in black, (wrapped in black) wrapped in black
(wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black) Wrapped in black
Wrapped in black (wrapped in black), wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Wrapped in black, in black, in black, wrapped in black (wrapped in black)
Too strong, too black, too strong, too black
Too strong, too black, too black, too black
Too black, too strong, too black, too strong
Too black, too strong, too strong, too strong
(repeats throughout)

Trivia

  • The Norse fiddle and orchestral brass loops heard in the song were sampled from Apple Loops, as Hideki Naganuma sometimes uses Logic, a digital audio workstation.
  • The refrain "Too black, too strong" samples a famous quotation by Malcolm X in his "Message to the Grass Roots" speech.
  • The refrain "Wrapped in black" samples "Sell Your Soul" by The Watts Prophets, in which they actually say "rappin' black".
  • Big Swell's music from Sonic Rush Adventure uses the same brass loop as "Wrapped in Black".
