[Talking at the beginning]

No revolutionary gets old
Or so I'm told
You're left full of bullet-holes
When you tell the people go free

Oh, it's a matter of days before they try to take me
I heard gunshots rang
His bullet got my name
I ain't see him take aim
I dreamt this day came

'Cause I stood in the face of damnation 
Satan, spat at him, flat out disgraced him
He want my blood; why me?
Why not the fake ones who deserve death, man

Fuck it, I'll take one
Can stop me but can't stop a whole nation
Of millions who feel you deceived them
They believing reparation makes it even

So I'm deadly now because of one reason 
They listening 
In Budapest, Japan, China, and Switzerland 
We getting it in, son

 Another bullet passed by, missed me
 Wondering who plotting to get me
 Alphabet boys still plotting against me
To hush me up and stuff me in the pockets of history 

You won't remember why they came to clip me
When time go by, you'll soon forget me
They say he was the king of bling, jewels, and Bentley's
Then they use one of my lines just to prove I'm guilty 
Don't let them kill me

[Talking "They did not have the power to stop Louis Farrakhan" Repeated]

Some revolutionaries do live long
Am I one of them? Guess we'll know in due time
 Everybody has rights, can I use mine?
Can I rock shine? Can I have a girl that's too fine?

Got a swell life, tell me, will I lose mine?
 Every time I turn around somebody new dying 
Let's start living
Ala carte escargot, Escobar, invest my millions 

 Mansion for the wife, the rest for the children  Knowing that they coming any time, but until then
I'm at large until they shoot me
 Million dollar stones and my camouflage Gucci

 Giving you this crack like Pookie 
To question the system 
Be the resistance 
No matter what color you are
 Everybody nigga's
You can stand by and watch 
Or you can march on with us

Some revolutionaries get old
 Although I'm told
You're get left full of bullet-holes
When you tell the people go free
Oh, it's just a matter of days before they try to take me [Repeat: x 2]
