[Featuring Inspectah Deck  Street Life  Mobb Deep] 
[Method Man] 
Ha  yeah yeah yeah  yeah yeah 
One time.. yo 
Never liked son from day one  bring you tool 
That nigga stick you and play dumb  hate a bitch ass 
Who care where you came from  you ain't prepared 
for when the pain come  this nigga scared  shook to death 
from a cold stare  stuntin  knowin my brothers fiend 
to do you somethin over here  we head huntin 
in the function I smell fear, adrenaline start pumpin 
I Smash Pumpkins, Hard Rock be in the Cafe 
Tear the club up, and anyone that try to judge us 
The last days, makin sure I get the last say 
In the food chain, is you predator or prey? 
If you featherweight, lyrics blow your back 
crack your vertabrae, lookin for a better way 
to get my point across, thoughts accelerate 
at the same speed, of the murder rate 
Lord, never perpetrate a fraud, til my nigga Carlton Fisk 
see the boss, truly yours, Mr. Meth 
[Street Life] 
Life's a snippet, one way ticket 
Time tickin fast, blink you might miss it 
Semen on Street shit, you might catch fifty stitches 
Body bag sprayed up, buried in muddy ditches 
I play for keeps, bust heat you catch cold feet 
My rap sheet, speak for itself, concrete 
Evident, Killa Hill, resident, double dart agent 
Secret intelligent my rap style's flagrant 
Chorus One: all 
Feel the sting of a killa bee, Johnny Blaze 
Street Life, Deck and Mobb Deep, Play IV Keeps 
In the city that you never sleep, pay attention 
Ain't no shittin when you gotta eat, we hold it down 
[Inspectah Deck] 
I move like Mad Max 'cross the wasteland 
One hand holds the head of the last brave man 
Made man, Cuban Link chain of command 
Authorized fam', hot like Sahara sand 
My live team turn the club to a crime scene 
High beams flash, promoters die behind CREAM 
Get your face blown, might face the chrome 
We take this more serious than just a poem 
I think about a lot of shit, especially when I'm bent 
About the foul shit goin on in my life, current event 
It's evident I smoke ciggarette down to Brownsville 
Thinkin to myself -- how many lives must my pound kill? 
Hopefully none, ain't the one to give chase 
Hemmed by Jake, worryin who might turn state's 
So I chill, put my killa niggaz on the battlefield 
On the low plottin silent murderer, never doubt still 
never follow beef hey beef follow me 
want to settle in the court I say settle in the streets 
like our pops did it, you got gats get hot with it 
Now you dry snitchin, because you got knocked with it 
I just rock with it, go with the flow, think for a hot minute 
Stash my dough secure the funds of profit 
Yo, extreme rhyme niggaz, you wastin your time 
Fuckin with my niggaz, extraordinary line swishin 
your mind out position, tryin to figure this shit 
Rewind it and listen quick, you might miss this 
Olympic, rap jave-lon, travel beyond, your weak song 
Doin this for too long, to not come strong 
You're only a pawn of Viet Dong 
Tryin to form against mines, you musta just been born 
Secluded on a distant farm 
This is the real world, where niggaz get shot and shanked 
Where there's tremendous pain, you get your frame inflamed 
Crushed to dust, by the next man's clutch 
It's Infamous you fucks, intense bad luck.. 
Chorus One 
Stand strong on our two feet, we all ready 
for a war here, f*ck peace, what? 
Chorus One 
Stand strong on our two feet, we all ready 
for a war here, f*ck peace, peace
