Lyrics

Come on! When it's all said and done Who will fight and who will run It's up to you to show us how The choice is yours, the time is now

Listen! This is for my peeps in the belly of the beast Ain't nothing nice cuz life is deadly on the streets With money flow, funny, this ain't where we wanna be Everybody where he is, where we gonna eat Even the young stressed out, no one gets left out The slum, the blessed child, the strongest spazzed out Rhymes and metals, sounds that goes around ghettos The call of war here walks so we call it ground zero

We will live alone, cannon friends afold When the cold wind blows, it's so visible no chips to close and no whips to roll smoke just the coke, it's so difficult Oh! This ain't the place for no kid to grow Bitch No way to go so yo this is whom If they don't get dope, both develope It's the bullshit goes so mess with them come on

When it's all said and done Who will fight and who will run It's up to you to show us how The choice is yours *legends*, the time is now

Yo Put your head in the pollution, is never better solution Not televising the revolution, I'm looking for a resolution If important definite executions Firing squads, lethal injections, electrocutions, keeps us negative lucid They're trying to create hate They try to peacemake oppressing the people and population put in the policestate Secret nuclear launch codes launched from the briefcase, retinal scan system, authorisation It keeps savin' them Under heavy hard rock pointing when the guitars strummin' I'm swinging the sword like Errol Flynn, swords buckling I ain't running when the police car coming I ain't hiding when defeated the beast start dumping on the hardest that sport nothing That you hop over the cowardice, helping the power and the powerless Countless hours opposing packing with police power trips B-Boy, that's my stance my flow make the angels in the sky dance Rugged Man with the god for wine dance Come on!

When it's all said and done Who will fight and who will run It's up to you to show us how The choice is yours, the time is now

The time is right now

When it's all said and done Who will fight and who will run It's up to you to show us how The choice is yours, the time is now

When it's all said and done Who will fight and who will run It's up to you to show us how The choice is yours, the time is now
