[Intro/Chorus: Everlast (House of Pain)]
There is nowhere to hide, nowhere to run
When the sins of the father fall on the son
The bigger the problem, the bigger the gun
And you don't wanna know what your government's done (Whoop! whoop! whoop!)
Cause the Taliban; was down with us! 
Saddam Hussein; was down with us! (US!)
South Africa; was down with us! (WAS DOWN US!)
And y'all wonder why the whole world don't trust

[Tray Deee - The Eastsidaz]
You keep us handcuffed, chained and enslaved us
We might gangbang but y'all the real fucking gangsters
Hanged us and raped us and chased us and maced us
So I don't give a mad fuck if this shit flame up
We ain't benefiting -- win, lose or draw
When they sware to protect us but abuse the law
Claim equality, their policy to fool us all
While the military steady stay moving raw
(Stay where?) stay in the ghetto, No War!!

[Defari - Tha Alkaholiks]
When people all around us are starving and homeless
What is Bush focused on? -- must be his father's old grudges
The schools need money, man, they're fucking off the budges
No more tomahawks; and penitentiaries 
The devil's propaganda creates enemies (Yeah!!)
Now they pump-pumping war in the Middle East
And this shit got me thinking who's really the beast!

[J-Ro - Tha Alkaholiks]
People always talking about Gangster Rap
Now Bush talking about where all my gangsters at
Somebody call Don King
Bush and Saddam need to take it to the ring 
And do the damn thing
They're already talking about re-building their city's
I roll around the hood and shit still looks shitty
It's all about the loot, grab your gun and shoot
Peace to my brother Will' and the rest of the troops

[RBX - Dogg Pound Gangstaz]
The temperature is rising; about to boil
I'm not bamboozled, it's all about the oil
I sit back and watch their plots and schemes
Tangled up strings to a puppet regime
So now it's on who? -- like, what, where, when
Get your mind right, I truly recommend
Too much information; C-N-N
They told me that.. Bush trained Bin
A deadly combination to a wicked quest
And it's true that the rooster comes home to nest

[Hook: Fredwreck Scratching and cutting]
There there there.. there's a war going on outside ------> Prodigy

[Soopafly - Dogg Pound Gangstaz]
Yeah, I just can't understand but then again I do
Lord, God, forgive a nigga for the sin I do
Shit, Soopa's not stupid, I can read the signs
What evil defines a motherfucker out for wealth
And ways to stealth, bombers 
Fake talk to calm us.. down
We can't raise when the fall is now
Innocent die, enormous rounds
Fall out the sky from an army hell bound and headed by one clown 


[Evidence - Dilated Peoples]
Come and look Rude boy at what the government's done
Out of the trenches, jump over fences
Clear park benches, who wanna test this?
Light is here boy, ready for teach
Put me life on the line; the youth they want eat
Beat back them all, out of control
Paint The White House in a red, green and gold
Fling out George Bush and let the good times roll (Yeah!!)
And teach all the youth; them what's never been told

[Daz Dillinger - Dogg Pound]
What is the world coming to? -- true domination
Frustration war over someone's altercation
My motivation towards peace, the violence needs to cease
(But how can you say that when you going through out the streets?)
It's defense between suckers and buster
A child and his mother but what can I say towards the other
Daz is down with The Movement; telling them let's do this
For the people, for ourselves, we gotta stay true to what we believe in
It's true world domination, for all colors and all other races
Now what I see Bush, they after the oil
It's a big dope sack for him and his father to bubble

[Bad Azz - LBC Crew]
I declare war and you have the right to bear arms
But, no Weapons of Mass Destruction (what?!)
Who are you to tell me what size of bombs I can drop
When my enemies threaten me with harm
When they said Saddam violated the rules of war
There's no rules to killing and dying therefore
Fuck y'all, I ain't fighting; it's their war
I ain't dying over there on that land; that's their soil

[Rakaa Iriscience - Dilated Peoples]
War is life, yes, and war is death
War don't decide who's right but who's left
I fight everyday so I ain't spitting on soldiers
But this war's for oil, for religion and culture
Big business, dollars and family honor
Half world domination, half family drama
The media just turned Saddam to Osama
Rakaa, As-Salamu Alaykum = Peace be upon us

[W.C. And Madd Circle]
Peace, ain't no peace, the killing ain't cease
As long as you're yelling "peace" I'm gonna carry my piece
Miss America! or say can you see there in front of you?
I'm a Westside gang related P-O-W
Selling with felons where it ain't all good
And justice and equality ain't never been in the hood
Catch me guzzling Gin while you're yelling free Iraq
I'm yelling free homies out the Pen'


[RBX - Dogg Pound Gangstaz]
And so it goes, on the brink
Our lives is like Granules of Sand through the hour glass
Do YOU know what time it is?
That's the question -- Hahaha Hahaha

[Outro: Mac Minister]
FredWreck gun them down!
There Ain't no Viet' or Cong' ever called me nigga
But you wanna put me in the middle of the desert and tell me to squeeze the trigger
On my same niggers, I ain't the one, I'm the other one
You give me a gun, George Bush better run
I'm a motherfucking S-A-G, a "Space Age Gangster"
I ain't no motherfucking prankster
I'm ready to gun them down
Fuck them and feed them fish with the little sharp bones and hope they choke
The White House is the crack house, Uncle Sam is the gunning man
The black man gotta stop and take a stand
I de-cl-are war, votes don't matter no more
How the fuck did Bush get into office when my niggaz elected Gore?!
