Various Artists - I Gotcha Back lyrics

[Hook: GZA and RZA] I gotcha back, but you best to watch your front Cause it's the n***as that front, they be pulling stunts I gotcha back, but you best to watch your front Cause it's the n***as who front (they be pulling stunts) [Verse 1: GZA] I was always taught my do's and don'ts For do's I did, and for don'ts, I said I won't I'm from Brooklyn, a place where stars are born Streets are shot up, apartment buildings are torn And ripped up, stripped up, shacked up and backed up From fiends, cause the bosses on the scene, they got it cracked up Kids are slinging in my lobby Little Steve and Bobby Getting paid but it's a life-threatening hobby Yeah, they still play hide-and-seek The fiends seek for the crack, and they hide and let the cops peep Grown folks say they should be out on their own Before the gangs come and blow up their mom's home Because they lifestyle is hectic, so f**ing hectic Blaow! Blaow! Blaow! Bullets are ejected My lifestyle was so far from well Could've wrote a book with a title "Age 12 and Going Through Hell" Then I realized the plan I'm trapped in a deadly video game, with just one man So I don't only watch my back, I watch my front Cause it's the n***as who front, they be pulling stunts Back on the Ave of Livonia and Bristol with a pistol Sticking up Pamela and Crystal You know your town is dangerous when you see the strangest Kid come home from doing the bid and nothing changes What is the meaning of CRIME (what?) Is it Criminals Robbing Innocent Motherf**ers Everytime? Little shorties take walks to the schoolyard Trying to solve the puzzles to why is life so hard Then as soon as they reached the playground, blaow! Shots ring off and now one of them lay down It's so hard to escape the gunfire I wish I could rule it out like an umpire But it's an everlasting game, and it never cease to exist Only the players change, so [Hook 3x] RZA - I gotcha back (8X) I gotcha back so you best to watch your front Cause it's the n***as who front, that be pulling stunts I gotcha back but you best to watch your front It's the n***as who front, that be pulling stunts [Outro: (LP version only)] *old man* Your, tech, nique, is, mag-ni-ficent When cut across the neck A sound like wailing winter winds is heard, they say I'd always hoped to cut someone like that someday To hear that sound But to have it happen to my own neck is... ridiculous *man gasps for air*
