Description

[Verse One: Prodigy] It all began on the street, to the back of a blue police vehicle Next come the bookings, the way things is lookin It's Friday, you in for a long stay Gettin shackled on the bus first thing come Monday Hopin in your mind you'll be released one day But knowin, home is a place you're not goin for a long while Now you're up on the isle In a position that you ain't got to refusin to smile But keep in mind there's a brighter day, after your time spent Used to be wild, but locked up, you can't get bent Thought you could hack it, now you're requestin P See you're fragile, it ain't hard to see Niggas like that don't associate with me I'd rather, get busy to the third degree cause the wrong population's on infinitely If this was the street, my razor would be a mack demon Hit you up, leave your whole face screamin What you in for kid - bustin nuts? Cats heard of me in street stories told inside this trap Who are you to look at me wit'char eyes like that Wising up young blood, before you make things escalate And I would hate yo set your crooked ass straight... [Chorus] Make your moves at night Pack your heat in this war zone, niggas is trife Runnin from one time, ain't no time to slip Make one false move and it's a up north trip Livin the high life, make your moves at night Pack your heat in this war zone, niggas is trife Runnin from one time, ain't no time to slip Make one false move and it's a up north trip [Verse Two: Havoc] You tried to dip, duck, but still got bucked You talk too much shit, you shoulda kept your mouth shut All that gossip, motherfucker don't you know my glock kicks Hollow tips, to your body, mad toxic I fade you, blow you with a rusty-ass razor Did you a favor, tried to wet you but I graze you Pop goes the glock when there's beef on the block Chill for a while make them think the beef stop Then I creep like a thief in the night, it's only right Ain't no turnin back, it's on tonight And if I get caught then my ass is up north Straight on the course for upstate New York Stress, smokin back to back cigarettes It popped off, one point in the mess hall But to avoid that, from head to toe, dipped in all black Hit them niggas where they pump they cracks at Havoc, with the murder master plan Keep my nine up to par, so my shit won't jam God forbid if my shit do, run behind a tree Fix my shit then hit you, slugs in your body Mainly in your brain tissue Witness from the scene, get ghost, stash the pistol So simple then, watch my back, lay up and relax Roll a sack, K-A black, find a shorty to tag [Chorus] [Verse Three: Prodigy] I got the powder, combine wit the powder, and water It oughta, drop in a half and hour In the, form of oil, watch the cocaine boil Keep my eye on it so the shit won't spoil Then I pause... and ask God why Did he put me on the serve, just so I could die I sit back and build on, all the things I did wrong Why I'm still breathin, and all my friends gone I try not to dwell on the subject for a while Cause I might get stuck in this corrupt lifestyle But my, heart pumps foul blood through my arteries And I can't turn it back it's a part of me Too late for cryin, I'm a grown man strugglin To reach the next level of life, without fumblin Down to foldin I got no shoulder to lean on but my own All alone in this danger zone Time waits for no man, the streets grow worse Fuck the whole world kid my money comes first Cause I'm out for the gusto, and trust nobody If you're not family, then you die by me Cause niggas will have you locked up the snitch'll be your man Givin police the run down on your plans We're never goin down like that So I, shut my mouth and hold my words back Illegal business, forever mine, fuck payin taxes The last kid that shitted and gave police access to my blueprints, used names as evidence Skipped town and I haven't seen the snitch nigga ever since The moral of the story is easy to figure out A lesson that you can't live without [Chorus 2X] Livin the high life
