Everybody's a snake, that's why I try to keep the grass cut
See it when they coming, then I heat they ass up

from Flatbush Zombies – Regular and Complex (GNB) Lyrics on Rap Genius


These lines are taken from The LOX song “Fuck You” including a sample of Jadakiss‘ verse at the very end.


In normal context, the line depicts a sense of untrust against most with their own devious intentions and plans to screw someone over. It becomes a metaphor for keeping your your grass cut or being aware of your surroundings to spot the snakes in the grass, disposing of them as soon as they’re noticed.
