Uh, DMX
Clueminati 
Is y'all mother- ready for the Ruff Ryde?
Grr

When I speak I'm understood, my decision is wood 
I see what I'm able to see (uh) 'cause my vision is good 
It's like I see through the eyes of a wise old man 
So I chill knowin' I can kill this guy's whole fam 
Sometimes it's better to be thought dumb and remain silent 
Then to open your mouth and remove all doubt 'cause it became violent 
See I'm gonna give it to you straight so you don't ask anymore 
You don't really want what you asking me for 
It's a war (uh), when it's on it's on
Doin' wrong (what?) 'Til I'm gone and I ain't got long
But while I'm here (uh), y'all gon' burn 
Peep how I finished money (what?) And y'all gon' learn 
All week you been talking about that drive-by 
And ain't did nothing but drive by
Listen shawty I'm telling you this for your own good (uh)
Everybody is the man in they own hood, for real 

Yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone
Uh-huh, yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone (what?)
Yeah (new DMX), 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone (It's On)
Uh-huh, yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' (ha, ha)

I always keep my enemies the closest (uh) 
Always make sure I know where the toast is (uh) 
Always cover my tracks when I creep 
Always get away when I'm done to relax, is deep (Clue)
I always know the rules of the game before I play 
And always keep enough dough to know I'm good for the day 
I always walk my dogs off the leash and 
Always get my thoughts off the streets and 
Always would rather lend a hand then borrow 
And always no matter what plan for tomorrow 
I always pay my respects to the dead 
I always take at least one blunt to the head 
And I always know which- is gon' end up gettin'
And always know which- is gon' end up getting stuck 
I'm always strapped, I've always packed
I've always rapped, it's always that 
Always black 

Yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone
Uh-huh, yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone (what?)
Yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone
Uh-huh, yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin'

Never try to knock off rock on the block that ain't yours
Never take a man's life 'cause you hate yours 
Never become so involved with something that it blinds you 
Never forget where you from someone who reminds you (ha, ha)
Never take for granted what's been given as a gift 
And if I sleep on a- 'less that- stiff 
Never turn your back on a- you don't trust 
Never turn your gat on a- and don't bust 
Never expect to get away with the same- more than twice 
Never forget you could get it too for a price 
Never bring it to a- if you scared to die 
Never gon' do it- if you scared to drive 
Never gon' be another day it gets dark 
Never get it-, here, for the heart 
Never say never
'Cause I never thought this clever thought, never
Ever caught better, getting cheddar, with three letters
DMX

Yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone
Uh-huh, yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone (what?)
Yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on
And if you cats keep frontin' then your ass is gone
Uh-huh, yeah, 'cause if it's on, it's on (DJ Clue)
And if you cats keep frontin'

Uh DMX
Clueminati
9-8 , Ruff Ryders, motherf-
Y'all- don't know, how it's gon' go, for real (uh) 
(It's nothin') It's Dark and Hell is Hot 
Y-O, motherf-
School Street 
Home of the Brave we all here, baby 
Mundo, Telemundo, uh
