Riot act, this is where we really prepare
Riot act, out here we show no fear
 RIOT ACT, time to protect our communities 
Riot act, real criminals get immunity  RIOT ACT, eye for an eye - so yo who want it?
 RIOT ACT, rushin' all you cowards who fronted 
Riot act, let's bring the power to the people  RIOT ACT, no justice then we gotta come see you

Just like a thunderous gun clap, you wonder who done that
Put you under with one rap, me and the brothers have come back
We'll lash you for tryin' that, we know you been lyin' cat
So now you be lyin' flat, we'll read you the riot act
 Whassup you little fuck, get your life right 
'Cause there's too much goin' in the world, and shit ain't quite right
See you're just addin' to the problem  Young gun, high-strung, ready to trey-eight revolve 'em
Knot nearly in your waist, you step up in the place  Catch one off guard, he lookin silly in the face
But hear they come with the M-16's
They got teargas, helmets and clubs - knahmean?
It's martial law in these streets
It's like Afghanistan man, it's gettin' raw in the streets  Still you demand your rights, I understand your plight 
But do the knowledge if you plan to fight 


So realize what it is to be oppressed and afflicted  Subjected to sick shit, knowin' others live different  FUCK THAT, the streets about to blow again 
They forgot, so we gotta let 'em know again 
Huh, we'll blast you for tryin' that, we know you been lyin' cat

So now you be lyin' flat, we'll read you the riot act
Soldiers, let's show these cowards what's up
The hood a
