Riot Akt (Edited)

Gang Starr

[Chorus]
Riot act, this is where we really prepare
Riot act, out here we show no fear
RIOT ACT, time to protect our communities
Riot act, real criminals get immunity
RIOT ACT, eye for an eye - so yo who want it?
RIOT ACT, rushin' all you cowards who fronted
Riot act, let's bring the power to the people
RIOT ACT, no justice then we gotta come see you

Just like a thunderous gun clap, you wonder who done that
Put you under with one rap, me and the brothers have come back
We'll lash you for tryin' that, we know you been lyin' cat
So now you be lyin' flat, we'll read you the riot act
Whassup you little fuck, get your life right
'Cause there's too much goin' in the world, and shit ain't quite right
See you're just addin' to the problem
Young gun, high-strung, ready to trey-eight revolve 'em
Knot nearly in your waist, you step up in the place
Catch one off guard, he lookin silly in the face
But hear they come with the M-16's
They got teargas, helmets and clubs - knahmean?
It's martial law in these streets
It's like Afghanistan man, it's gettin' raw in the streets
Still you demand your rights, I understand your plight
But do the knowledge if you plan to fight

[Chorus]

So realize what it is to be oppressed and afflicted
Subjected to sick shit, knowin' others live different
FUCK THAT, the streets about to blow again
They forgot, so we gotta let 'em know again
Huh, we'll blast you for tryin' that, we know you been lyin' cat

So now you be lyin' flat, we'll read you the riot act
Soldiers, let's show these cowards what's up
The hood a
