Ka - Old justice

(Then thou shalt give for life, eye for eye)
(Tooth for tooth, hand for hand)
(Foot for foot, burning for burning)
(Wound for wound, stripe for stripe)

We was living in the living room
Can't wait for it to come, need to get it soon
Cousin said he gon' get off a key, better get it to him
By next weekend, could be eating with a bigger spoon
Sold raw, no more scraping the bottom
Brave the corner where ain't no talking to Solomon
Read with aggression, assuming they waiting to rob him
Thought he was moving solution, without equating the problem
When young in the flesh, hunger the best motivator
That's word, get hurt out here if you don't know the nomenclature
Shark slangers, only thing you couldn't own was paper
Fam we bleed, ain't guaranteed staying home was safer
Mass bandit, I suggested it but out flash demand it
Pull solo missions, wishing to et off mass transit
Letting shit pass, that's how you get your ass handed
All gaudy, thought he was fly 'til he crash landed
Here cake exists only for those that take the risks
If the Lord offered, would you learn how, or take the fish?
No dandelions, I got handed irons to make a wish
Lived to hate, to the state was just another appear to frisk
We begotten and forgotten, the covenant was rotten
Them days everything was grave, so we was plotting
Never cupped my hand, fuck what Same threw us out of guilt
We ate awkward that block of cheese, that powdered milk
Graduated hard knocks, where there's no diplomacy
Shine, hope dimes pay attention and cops don't notice me
After grade sev', break bread, my friends ate
The cypher's muddy, the cycle bloody 'til all my men straight
(The cycle bloody) 'Til all my men straight


'Round here everybody know the truth
A body for an eye, a body for a tooth
That's why I kept the shotty on the stoop
A body for an eye, a body for a tooth
This rule apply to all recruits
A body for an eye, a body for a tooth, uh

That's why they did they 1-2, with 3.45's
1-2, with 3.45's
Did they 1-2, with 3.45's
They kill you for the truth
Faster than the lies, man
1-2, with 3.45's
Being so close to death made us more alive
1-2, with 3.45's
1-2, with 3.45's, ha
1-2, with 3.45's
