Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Yo Ease let's do this...

I am a nightmare walking, psychopath talking
King of my jungle just a gangster stalking
Living life like a firecracker quick is my fuse
Then dead as a deathpack the colors I choose
Red or Blue, Cuz or Blood, it just don't matter
Sucker die for your life when my shotgun scatters

We gangs of L.A. will never die - just multiply

You see they hit us then we hit them
Then we hit them and they hit us
, man
It's like a war, ya know what I'm sayin'
People dont even understand
They don't even know what they dealing with
You wanna get rid of the gangs it's gonna take a lotta work
But people don't understand the size of this
This is no joke man, this is real


You don't know me, fool
You disown me, cool
I don't need your assistance, social persistance
Any problem I got I just put my fist in
My life is violent but violent is life
Peace is a dream, reality is a knife

My colors, my honour, my colors, my all
With my colors upon me one soldier stands tall
Tell me what have you left me, what have I got
Last night in cold blood my young brother got shot
My homie got jacked
My mother's on crack
My sister can't work cause her arms show tracks

Madness insanity live in profanity
Then some punk claimin' they understandin' me
Give me a break, what world do you live in
Death is my sect, guess my religion

Yo my brother was a gang banger
And all my homeboys bang
I don't know why I do it man, I just do it
I never had much of nuffin man
Look at you man, you've got everything going for yourself
And I ain't got nuffin man, I've got nuffin
I'm living in the ghetto man
Just look at me man, look at me

My pants are saggin braided hair
Suckers stare but I don't care

My game ain't knowelgde my game's fear
I've no remorse so squares beware

But my true mission is just revenge
You ain't in my sect, you ain't my friend
Wear the wrong color your life could end

Homocides my favorite venge

Listen to me man
No matter whatcha do don't ever join a gang
You don't wanna be in it man
You're just gonna end up in a mix of dead freinds and time in jail I
Know, if
I had a chance like you
I would never be in a gang man
But I didn't have a chance
You know I wish I did


I'll just walk like a giant police defiant
You'll say to stop but I'll say that I can't
My gangs my family its all that I have
I'm a star, on the walls is my autograph

You don't like it, so you know where you can go
Cause the streets are my stage and terror's my show
Phsyco-analize tried diognising me wise
It was a joke brother the brutally died

But it was mine, so let me define
My territory don't cross the line
Don't try to act crazy
Cause the bitch dont thank me
You can be read like a punk
It wouldn'ta made me
Cause my colors death
Thou we all want peace
But our war won't end

They'll always see

See the wars of the street gangs will always get to me man
But I don't wanna be down with this situation man
But I'm in here, if I had something betta to do I think I'd do it but
Right
Now I'm just down here boye
I'm trying to get money cause I'm smart
I'm gunna get paid while I'm out here
I'm gunna get that paper, ya know what I'm saying
If I had a chance like you
Maybe I would be in school
But I'm not, I'm out here living day to day surviving
And I'm willing to die for my colors

Yo'll please stop, cause I want ya all to live
This is Ice-T, Peace...
