When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

It's ten o'clock and darkness covers my area
And every night it's gettin' a little bit more scarier
The eleven o'clock Monday news is more like a horror flick
People sure have changed, it seems that they enjoying this

Death and destruction with no instruction
Leads to malfunction, disruption and full consumption
How can I escape this mind state that I'm in?
I been tryin' but it seems that I can't win

I've fallen and I can't get up
And the homies that was my homies want to set me up
Somebody tried to tell me that it was all in my brain
I tried to act a hard male runnin' cocaine but it still don't ease my pain

Am I insane or a victim of my own fears?
What's goin' on, we supposed to be happy here
"God don't make no junk," that's what I been told
But it seems to me that God ain't in control

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

I need assistance but all I get is resistance
I try to be persistent but life can be gone in an instant
I'm scared to turn around 'cause I know somebody's watching
I can feel they evil stares and I know that they plottin' on me

And scheamin', I wish I was dreamin'
If my mind was free I could chase away the demons
But it ain't and they still can't understand
That all I ever wanted in life was a chance to be a man

The same old pattern has got me goin' crazy, loc
Descendant of a king but I feel like a royal joke
Is this a sequel? Are all men created equal?
The lies you told to the people back then, now they is lethal

And now we swimmin' in the pool like shark bait
Feel my pulse race, abnormal heart rate
And now I'm startin' to feel like I might come up missin'
I tried to tell somebody but nobody wouldn't listen

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

I'm feelin' oppressed, this stifle, my life is trifle
No family, friends or relations, so I sleep with my rifle
And my pistol, I'm seein' stars and hearin' whistles
One shot from a little junky ass twenty-two will tear a whole your gristle

Won't stay to state side
'Cause the unpure fall off the fall by the way side
So stay your ass on the plate side

There's nothin' to fear but the fear itself
And if you control the fear, then the fear is wealth
Do I have power or do I have no self control?
These long, lonely nights have made my heart grow cold

Hear my pleads, can somebody help a G
And will we fight this battle for eternity
I blame you 'cause my mind is not my own
So don't blame me if I trespass in yo' zone

I'm your creation
The product of a twisted nation
Guess, this is what you're facin'

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me

When night falls over the city
Gotta be ready 'cause it feels like
Somebody's comin' to get me
