Lyrics[edit]

Woman:  "Oh god, please don't take my child
        He's not ready to die.
        Oh god, he's gonna take him from us
        I hear him coming, i hear him coming,
        I hear him coming..."
 
DMX:    "You, right here shorty, told you, I got you
        Like the way I scooped you, when those faggot niggaz shot you?
        I'ma hold you down, and I mean that, for real"
         
        "But everytime you beef with a nigga, I end up havin' to kill"

        "Ain't like that, and hey, forget about them 2 kids
        'Bout to do a deal, somethin' nice as you is"

        "Oh you think?"

        "Nah, I'm just playin', what's up?
        I got some new bitches, I know you tryin' to fuck"

        "Not really"

        "What? I ain't your man no more?
        Because a nigga, don't need a hand no more?
        You know how we do, if one don't score
        We all take the pussy and go up in the roar"

        "It's like now
        Where you goin'
        I ain't trying to take it
        Fuckin' with a nigga like you, I won't make it"

        "It'll be what it is"

        "Yo, you in for the night?
        I'm 'bout to take it to the crib"

        "You get home alright"
 
Manson: The snake, the rat
        The cat and the dog
        How you gonna live when you're in the fog?
 
        The snake, the rat
        The cat and the dog
        How you gonna live when you're in the fog?

Dmx:    "Yo, I ain't fuckin' with this nigga, no more
        Word to my mother
        Fuck 'em, so ya know 'em for sure
        Word to my brother
        It's like he's gotten worse than before
        Sometimes I wonder
        What type of dirt this nigga got in store for me to get under
        Then I get a call
        Yo"

        "X, police just killed your cousin, happened in the projects
        Don't get back, them niggaz will pay, then I got you, told you I got you
        Yo, I got you"

        "I'm in a catch 22
        But them niggaz gotta pay
        But I know he's gonna be askin' for a favor one day
        But fuck it
        I ain't got no choice in the matter
        Them faggots killed my people
        And I wanna see them splattered"

        "That's what I'm talkin' 'bout, we ain't on no bitch hit
        And use the same gun that you killed them 2 kids with
        Is that hard to live with?"

        "Nah"

        "See, you still a playa"

        "But what you want from me?"

        "Uh...I'll tell you later"

Manson: The snake, the rat
        The cat and the dog
        How you gonna live when you're in the fog?

        The snake, the rat
        The cat and the dog
        How you gonna live when you're in the fog?

DMX:    "Shit is all over the news
        Bomb goes off in central
        What the fuck have I gotten myself into?
        My mental is like
        Get the fuck outta there
        I'm out"

        "Hey, goin' somewhere?"

        "Nah"

        "What the bag for?"

        "Fuck it, what you want?"

        "Can a nigga come inside for a minute, and puff a blunt?"

        "Here we go again"

        "After what I just gave you, with you actin' like that
        when you asked for that favor"

        "Yo, I ain't ask you for shit"

        "Oh yes you did, when you really needed something, and you was out, you did
        You sold me your soul, when you didn't say no
        Just let a nigga go, and give me what you owe
        Fuck what you think, ain't shit for free
        And a mothafucker you know, can't defeat me"

        "Forgive me father, for I have sinned
        And with your help I know, the devil won't win"

Manson: (Kill kill kill...)
        Wicked world on our way to hell
        (Kill kill kill...)
        We know what to do, we do it well
        (Kill kill kill...)
        Wicked world on our way to hell
        (Kill kill kill...)
        We know what to do and we do it well

DMX:    This is Marilyn Manson, DMX, Ruff Ryders...
