(Tribal war--we not want no more)
Everyone deserve to earn and every child deserve to learn
(Tribal war--none of that)
Every man deserve a turn like a flame deserve to burn
(Tribal war--we not want no more)
Each and everyone deserve to earn and every child deserve to learn
(Tribal war--none of that)
'Cause every man deserve a turn like Babylon deserved to burn

Man, what happened to us? Geographically they moved us 
From Africa--we was once happiness pursuers 
Now we back stabbing, combative, and abusive 
The African and Arab go at it--they most Muslim 
We should be moving in unison; disputes should end 
Bounty hunters in Grape Street get cool again 
Substandard housing got the young running rampant 
Wilding for a phantom he can style in 
Mask on his face, grabbing his Ruger 
Said, "nobody move, I'll shoot ya"; man, you're expiring 
Catch twenty-five and he doesn't like the man inside
With black, white pride, and Mexican, survive the best he can 
Strap a shank to his thigh 
Why do we all collide? Why do the young die? 
Extortion, murder, and burglary 
Tattoos his chest; it says his enemies don't deserve to breathe

(Tribal war--we not want no more)
Everyone deserve to earn and every child deserve to learn
(Tribal war--none of that)
'Cause every man deserve a turn like Babylon deserved to burn

I drink poison; then I vomit diamonds 
I gave you Mandela, black Dalai Lamas 
I gave you music; you enthused in my kindness 
So how dare you reduce me to Donny Imus?
Timeless in case we ain't never been acquainted 
Flyness--we made it; it gets duplicated 
Mindless violence--well, let me try to paint it 
Here's the five steps in hopes to explain it 
One: it's me and my nation against the world 
Two: and me and my clan against the nation 
Three: and me and my fam' against the clan 
Four: then me and my brother with no hesitation 
Go against the fam' until they cave in 
Five: now who's left in this deadly equation? 
That's right: it's me against my brother 
Then we point a Kalashnikov and kill one another 

(Tribal war--we not want no more)
Everyone deserve to earn and every child deserve to learn
(Tribal war--none of that)
Every man deserve a turn like Babylon deserve to burn 

Honor war tribal--over colors 
Over money, over land, and over oil, and over God, and over idols
And even lovers, over breakfast, over dinner, over socas 
Over jungle, over rema, over okas 
Over Brooklyn, over Queens, and over Rutgers 
Over red and over blue and over chuckers 
Over red and over blue and undercovers 
Tribal trouble, the drive-bys double 
'Cause the youth them not go war and go fight with knuckle 
The two sides scuffle
Vietnam not go a war with no more kung-fu nunchacku 
Missile and shuttle 
And the queen of England and Uncle Sam them flex them muscle 
The tribal hustle, blood diamond puddle, survival struggle 

(Tribal war--we not want no more)
Everyone deserve to earn, every child deserve to learn
(Tribal war--none of that)
Each and everyone deserve a turn like a flame deserve to burn
(Tribal war--we not want no more)
Everyone deserve to earn and every child deserve to learn
(Tribal war--none of that)
'Cause every man deserve a turn like Babylon deserved to burn
