Just came from the corner, what know about...
All because of the informers
Everythang shut down
In the hood certain rules apply
Defending on who's trying to survive
It's not safe, it's not safe

Just came from the border
From a whole another town
Dope dealers getting murdered
Buried underground
Cause in the... killers multiply
Will probably sing you a lullaby
It's not safe, it's not safe

Why do I have to ride with a gun on my side
And... the peace
Hope my enemies don't conquer me,
But who knows, but how knows
But who knows, but who knows
Where I'd be without the recipe

... in a town's compound
Being taught how to slaughter
Blowing buildings to the ground
Cause in life no rules apply
Depending on who's trying to survive
It's not safe, no it's not safe
Live life straight forward, still pray it's pounding
You're the world's most wanted and you still can't be found
In the desert killers multiply,
And water runs out and the world goes dry
You're not safe, no you're not safe

Why do I have to ride with a gun on my side
And... the peace
Hope my enemies don't conquer me,
But who knows, but how knows
But who knows, but who knows
Where I'd be without the recipe
