What do you know?

The birds and the bees they're all wise to the lies
So they took to the trees and took to the skies
On top of the chain and safe from the rain
Whatcha' know about the ways of the underside?

What do you know?

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
'Cause they're hip to the bull and hip to the lies
Ante up with your ass 'cause you ain't got a penny
Whatcha' know about the ways on the underside?

What do you know?

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
Ante up with your ass 'cause you ain't got a penny
Droppin' bombs from above cut ya all down to size
'Cause they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies

What do you know?

Yeah, the streets rose in two perfect waves in the night
Crashes on my left, and one on my right
It's all fire and brimstone baby, so let's go outside
It's all fire and brimstone baby, I got my brand new pistol baby

What do you know?

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
Ante up with your ass 'cause you ain't got a penny
Droppin' bombs from above cut you all down to size
'Cause they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies
And they're hip to the lies

Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Right in front of your eyes, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Whatcha' know about the ways on the underside?

What do you know?

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
Ante up with your eyes 'cause you ain't got a penny
Time to get up
Dropping bombs from above cut you all down to size
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
'Cause they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies
And they're hip to the lies

Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Right in front of your eyes, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies

    Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies.
    Right in front of your eyes, it's time to get up.
    Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies.
    Now answer the lies it's time to get up.
    Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies.

    This is my best guess:
    People keep contributing to the bull crap and pain of the world and they don't care enough to end it, so some people are on a "mission" to basically purify everything and end the unnecessary pain.

    "the birds and the bees, they are wise to the lies, so they took to the trees and they took to the skies. " meaning there are some people who already saw something bad coming and decided to prepare for it. "on top of the chain and safe from the rain. " meaning they're prepared and untouchable by the troubles of the rest of the world. "'cause they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies. " may refer to people who contribute to it without even caring. "our turn to decide who lives and who dies" is probably saying "our generation is in charge now, so get up and do something". That's about all i can think of right now.
