Little Brother

Little Brother - Revenge

rate me

They say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

In the home of the babblin' brooks and armed crooks

Cowardly hearts, just straight up cold shook

Where the money get took and hoes open like a book

Take a look to the center, uh

The opposite of love

Let them hot slugs go when it's live enough

A penny saved in a penny earned

How many dollars is it gon' take for a nigga just to learn?

If I had a dime for every time that I heard

"Nigga you nice."

The price would be absurd

But now served from the corner to the curb

You hear the cops comin', warn a/Warner nigga like Kurt

Hurt from the heart to the ash to the dirt

Automatic rounds cascade in short bursts

Then you hear cars skirt

Ease off the new turf

Strapped to the teeth he's out to do work

This where the boogieman lurks

Where things go bump in the night

Invade like di-sperse

The vampires out tryin' to quench a blood thirst

And man it's real bad but shit could be worse

The worse with no purpose, verses

Those who attend the masses in churches

Regularly

Who you kiddin'? You a felon to be

And yeah it's hell but it's heaven to me

I burn steadily

Out for revenge again

It's gettin' too tough to hold what's held in

It's gettin' to rough to just smile and grin

So I can't pretend

Naw, I can't pretend

I'm out for revenge

"Please come get me"

"My man"

"Payback"

People take smiles for weakness

Like I ain't tryin' to run the race the Pre'ness

Like I ain't tryin' to taste the spoils the sweetness

Like I ain't really in it to win

I compete bitch

In the spirit of competition

I debut a limited edition

No comparison to war but I'm on a mission

I pledge allegiance, Poobie's rendition

And this is my transmission

Every now and then need a bang on the engine

Every now and then need a jump for precision

Was my decision to not speak tunes

Told you, "I'm the shit", I did not mean prunes

Come in second place your reward is a Zune

This is real spit, youngin', no cartoon

Real life shit, I'm familiar, I presume

Yo

Now, as I choose to resume

The butterfly effect, I emerge from cocoon

People say to me and not a moment too soon

Yo

It's like a burner to a book

The block to a cook

Yeah, I'm cookin' up, this is not how it looks

Know a little bit, certain people get shook

Now niggas tryin' to read me like a book

Out for revenge again

It's gettin' too tough to hold what's held in

It's gettin' to rough to just smile and grin

So I can't pretend

Naw, I can't pretend

I'm out for revenge

"Please come get me"

"My man"

"Payback"

Seven score, six years later

Still catchin' hell with the law, emancipated

Still slavin', I'll wages, shit's shaky

Make your own way, get a tax, get a cage for them

Who's raisin' them?

American made

Grow, gain, the American way

No shame

So sick of waiting

Hardly no patience

No break it is

Niggas start breakin' shit

Niggas start takin' shit

Don't care how many cameras be tapin' shit

Run it now nigga, we ain't tryin' to wait for shit

And you are sadly mistaken if

You think we ever gon' rest

If you ever think we never gon' step

To the A.M. with the A-R's so can settle the bet

No job, no crib, no life support

That's a last resort, nigga what the fuck you expect?

Kinda unexpected how I came ain't it?

So radiant

Cold Al Davis the player to go Raiders

No payment, no juice like Oshea spit it

Comin' for the loot from N.W.A. hits

Comin' for your troops like snipers on some chase shit

H.O.J. shit is what we get down for

How we usually go

If opportunity don't knock at my do'

You best believe I gotta kick down yours

Give me some Get Back

Out for revenge again

It's gettin' too tough to hold what's held in

It's gettin' to rough to just smile and grin

So I can't pretend

Naw, I can't pretend

I'm out for revenge

"Please come get me"

"My man"

"Payback"
