I think for the most part our generation is
Filled with a bunch of **********ing cowards
And I say that man cause we beef with amongst each other
We kill and we shoot each other in our own hoods
And we bang each other, we won't bang cops, you know what im sayin
And one thing theses ************s in America know
They know we wont do ****

I'm grippin' the neena
Visions of 911, visions of three 6's no 7's
This is bushanomics, George is a modern day Ronald Reagan
I pray to god and I miss the prayers, *****s I'm just sayin'
When do we stop playin', when do we stop pimpin' and start sprayin'
50 shots for every cop that popped sean bell, his body layin'
But they don't quit cause they know that our generation wont do ****
Nothin', nada, but every rapper is a shotta or a don dotta
Or a killer but you ain't killin' nothin' in this piece unless its another *****
Tryin to raise boys to supermen,
And while I'm at it **** Arthur J. Cooperman
Its never just-ice for blacks but they send just-us to Iraq
With poor whites and Latinos I pray to God that you hear this single
This is Banners middle finger yall, yeah!

[Chorus: x2]
I've been waitin' in the hood for so long (so long)
I've been waitin' in the hood for so long (so long)
For some *****s to stand up in here
We some soldiers and we have no fear

Mrs. Catherin Johnson was murdered by police
In north-west Atlanta but I don't hear it in the streets
With a anger in the hood for this old lady dying
DC 6 aint **** but cops lying
Ain't **** but bullets flyin' 39 slugs from under-covers
**** the law! this was somebody's damn grandmother
And she died over crack sales, crooked *** cops
Or some ***** tryin' to flip yay, yeah
You ain't have to sell it in her yard
You aint trappin ***** you yappin to the **********ing Gods
And I got a damn question, why the city ain't pissed off?
When I know yall heard shots and little lady got hauled off yall, yeah

[Chorus]

I don't understand if you don't ride for something dog
Fight for something, fight anybody but your **********ing self *****
We sell drugs, but we only sell drugs to ourself
We bang and we only bang on ourselves
We do every ****ing negative thing and *****s is so hard
*****s on the radio, on cities, on tapes, in movies
They got guns, they got pistols,
But ain't nobody shooting at nothing but they self
Fear is the only thing that people respect
We forget everybody but ourself
These cops gonna have to fear something
Something gonna have to happen
Yall goin' to march, march to the **********ing cops house my *****
Make these ************s fear something
Cause make us, they got us scared
They got *****s scared to go strip clubs *****
You know **** my ***** like,
Somethin' gotta happen I say it
Cause I ain't scared I ain't scared of ****
I'm scared of god I'm scared of god first
And I'm scared of takin' the blessing that god has given me
And leading someone down the wrong path (wrong path)
