Get Your Shit Together Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now whats goin' on
I don't know
Whats really goin' down
Y'all don't know
Between the east and the feds
Heads don't know
But you can bet
Some of these heads be the first to go
Between eighteen and thirty
Pray it don't get dirty
Now I got some new cats
Hearin' me
That never heard me
Eleven thirty do the math
Damn, here come the draft
But I'm at an age my fightin' is half ass
Shee, my flags always at half mast
Need you ask
While some of y'all laugh
But I see war lining these young cats
Up for body bags
And these so called thugs masquerading in drag
Cause now the feds checkin' all dem head rags
Hopin' this gung ho thing last
Cold and dark is the weather
Peoples, get yor sh*t together
Verse 2
Ain't even gonna fix my mouth to say chickens
Told y'all in terror dome the clocks tickin'
From all sides come the wicked
But how you gonna
Kill the innocent?
Between terrorists
And CIA hit lists
Like my man uno says
Beware the false prophets
Gotta be smarter than this
They say war is a profit
With loved ones missed
But death is a debt
None of us ain't seen war yet
Be careful what you ask for
War is hell and hell is war
All them bling bling thangs throw em in the river
All that thugged out sh*t y'all cant deliver
Seen four planes kill everyday folks
Guess 911 ain't no joke
Wall street cryin' broke
Was it god
Or the devil itself
Who spoke?
Old vampires
Hit the new empire
Had the sky cookin'
Brooklyn had no other choice
But to stare and keep lookin'
City smile
Missin' two front teeth
While some of y'all
Still talkin' them little ass beefs
Over who, what SoundScanned
Verse 3
This month you sound scared
Guessin' where the party at?
While downtowns wonderin'
Where the bodies at?
Verse 4
How you sell soul to a souless people
Who sold their soul?
Keep the people from bein' sheeple
Hollow voices
To tommorrow's sorrow
Women have nurtured
And birthed the earth
Man has killed many
For land and worse
Women got a cycle that's spoken for
Man has a period, its called war
May the power go to
Everyday people
May war have no sequel, live
Reverse the word you get evil
Cause people wanna live against evil
Avoid the third world war
Biological bombs
A hundred times worse than Vietnam
So what you gonna do?
If you was on that plane
Both sides would've killed you too
To my peoples
Stay on your P's and Q's
Get your sh*t together
