lyrics

let's get one thing straight
there will be no peace
except the one up in my kakhi fleece
i call 'em beats
kill treachourous peeps my pops thirty-thirty
on stand-by
six-million ways to die
i chose to live it up
cause satan follows an army don
ameri-con
pick it up
strong strong strong
like the ink they gonna feel the terror
when i'm sittin' on chrome or vice versa
didn't mean to hurt you but i had to
they bomb saddam or yea
they even bomb sudan
i can't trust a slave driver
they hired the hit-man attacks
killin' commies twisted like oragami
and afghan searchin' for the bad man
pushin' up bag i ride on...

until the earth stops im'a keep on ridin'
until the earth stops im'a keep on ridin'
livin' in love means lifting our voices up
louder, louder, louder, louder, loud-
so do it now.

until the earth stops im'a keep on ridin'
until the earth stops im'a keep on ridin'
livin' in love means lifting our voices up
louder, louder, louder, louder, loud-
so do it now.

yo
keep the bush a-blaze keep and
keep the most high praised in a selassie-i way
fire 'pon the vatican even confederates
illeterate
made 'cause they women want these nigga lips
so maybe it's
power struggle 'cause we all wanna bubble and make dough
but we ain't pickin' cotton no mo'
my fam straight outta mississippi
durnig times of picket lines
see my mother carries a heavy load
she feelin' pimp but she can't brush her shoulders off
for raising six street scholars
trained in the art of a fine southern beat down
making sure her kids stood ground
cause if you didn't fight back you could come home
and get that ass smooth whooped
peace already over-looked
streets already wrote the book
of survival rival
yeah we all wanna bust all-american shells
but can't cool i-ah
so stubborn that i can't give up
loosing sleep 'cause i always got a plan and such
she told me touch the devil with god's heat
dirt jungle concrete
and if i go down it's gonna be from my feet
i ride...
