Verse One:
Yeah, they blocking whole streets
Whole city-block with police
Yellow-taped off, with no witnesses or possible leads
'round here, it's no mansion or cobblestoned streets
...Response time slow, you know the deal
Another nigga dead, another city side-street
Neighbors misty-eyed, like 55-deep
On a corner and watching it all happen
I see, through the eyes of a child, a nigga dead in broad day
They said "God must've answered the second call late,"
They said "it's another soon-to-be never solved case,"
They said "the wrong time, but never the wrong place"

Hook:
When the last night
You see is the last life
You see with the last light
That's when you gotta go
You see the last light
You see in a black night
You speed in the fast life
But this one you go alone

Verse Two:
What seems to happen in the night could be the worst of all dreams
This the city where they worship false kings
But no less, the son of a mother
This is the curse of all queens
That may eventually bury they young
And I heard, his mother scream out
A mix of anger and loss
Screams and cries echo, she collapsed through it
No way could I know
She probably pictured him passing with old age
Hard to imagine this unimaginable pain
And I won't even attempt to put the words to it
Her recollection is deeper than life loss
Complexion and features say all
Another soon-to-be never solved case
They say "the wrong time, but never the wrong place," is the case...

Hook:
When the last night
You see is the last life
You see with the last light
That's when you gotta go
You see the last light
You see in a black night
You speed in the fast life
But this one you go alone

Verse Three:

Through my adolescent eyes
Seen the stretcher slide deep in the ambulance
Detectives in a second-try to select niggas to question
Hoping they can testify in defense
Silent treatment, not a single set of eyes seen it
Did the wrong, but for the right reasons
Cause you don't wanna die like this nigga for opening your mouth
And we give nothing but flowers for soured occasions
But they know it's repercussions being seen going down to the station
Cause somewhere within the crowd these cowards are pacing
These police, they won't be out on 24-hour surveillance
Another soon-to-be never solved case
They say "the wrong time, but never the wrong place"...

Hook:
When the last night
You see is the last life
You see with the last light
That's when you gotta go
You see the last light
You see in a black night
You speed in the fast life
But this one you go alone
