Gun shots sing to these other guys
But lullabies don't mean a thing to me

from Jay Z (Ft. Chris Martin) – Beach Chair Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay-Z continues with the dream motif in this line, saying that gun shots, like lullabies are singing “other guys” to sleep (Death?????) but he’s made sure to move past that place in his life where gin shots still fill the air.

At least gunshots provide “white noise” (if you’re a light sleeper!)
