lyrics

Verse1: Friday night bout 9 o clock/ up in the apartment with the windows locked/ nostalgic just to kick the block/ remembering when the kids used to up rock/ and beat box- fellowship was hot/ but Hate, Fear, and Greed came and cleared the lot/ Lust changed the girls into something theyre not/ The boys not dealing were afraid of gettin shot/ Corruption mayor- he took care of the cops/ so Evil and Control could continue slingin rocks/ Depression prevents them ever trying to stop/ Doubt shouts out YEA NOW WHERES YOUR GOD?/ Then it came to me- Jah cant be mocked/ If Im goin down Im going down in gun shots/ Got on my knees- called up the flock/ Yo meet me at the docks- bring the bats and glocks

Chorus: Neighborhood take back/ BACK/ Time to load up the scrolls and unroll the gats/ Neighborhood take back/ BACK/ Jah guidance in defiance of the wack/

Interlude: Look, yall remember what the Rabbi said. If you?re ashamed of him before men hes going to be ashamed of you before the Father. He didnt come to bring peace but to bring war. He said our enemies would be of our own homes and neighborhood. He said he who finds his own life will lose it but he who loses his life for his sake will find it. So, if you afraid, go now.

Verse2: Spread out/ We first found doubt/ hangin by the school where the young jewels sprout/ Faith took a bat and straight knocked him out/ Knowledge made the snuff/ Said Believe that now/ Got a call from Peace/ saw Violence downtown/ killin unborn babies and pushin ladies around/ I was like Did you take a sucka down?/ Naw, he saw love and just melted to the ground/ Just then Lust busts in/ high on his lies and his degradation/ He stabbed Hope/ it was about then when/ Self Control and Justice broke both his shins/ Snipe attack it was Control from the back/ sayin DONT MOVE but without Violence he lacked/ Started runnin cause I knew he was spineless/ So I killed him with Kindness/ Whats this/ up rises justice/ He says take Corruption and Greed off the hit list/ Blood was still drippin off his fists/ He killed them blind folded in a court room twist/ Joy killed depression/ the neighborhood cheered/ The report came back Faith was greater than Fear/ The people came out cause it passed ear to ear/ Evil ran into Love and just disappeared

Chorus
