I don't think the text is supposed to change, the background is.  Then
you should be able to "hide" the text somehow, by clicking the eye for
the text layer in the layers box.  Maybe you need to flatten it first?

Or maybe you should select the text layer, and not the
background/pattern layer, or vice versa.  *shrugs*

IIRC, there are also special fonts that fake this effect, if that is
also your desire... although there should be a method like this with
bump map that works.
