This is self defense
This is self defense
This is self defense
This is self defense

I think ya better let it go
You need attention? I send medical
Basically you're tryin' to harm me, you're crazy
Musically I'm blazin', physically I'm gracy
Triangle choke ya
And what the fuck could have provoked ya?
We don't know each other kid and I did not insult ya
Don't make me feed the fish, feed the trees or feed the vultures

I don't know stones, I throw statues and sculptures
I block flows with strikes and strikes with blows
I slice flows with my mic at shows
I counterattack to turn the tables in an instant
Move out of range and step into close distance
Resistance, relax with less friction
Leverage and technique bring jokes and submissions
You got heart, you plan to make it happen

But none of my family are chumps or never have been
Respect mine, protect myself at all times
Build twice next time before you cross the line
I guess this is what you call a turn of events
And the best offense is a good defense

Yo, you wanna hit us? We can hit back
If you talk that talk, you got's to live that
(This is self defense)
Whenever you front out, you gonna get back
Self defense, you wish you never did that
(This is self defense)

Yo, you wanna hit us? We can hit back
If you talk that talk, you got's to live that
(This is self defense)
Whenever you front out, you gonna get back
Self defense, you wish you never did that
(This is self defense)

Yo, stay ready for the worst, paranoid, straight, smart
Enemies hit ya where you think you're safe
(Self defense)
I cut my fingerprints with razor blades
I'm in the cut, the kind you don't recognize with shades
Tattoos, learn two tricks
Only thing between me and the borders and the straight face
Answers to questions, four eye contact
This confrontation ain't physical but still combat

Leave ya'self left with options to choose
The last line of defense from my crew, dope rules?
Psychic, precise, right and exact for songs
Only time we've been wrong is when we thought, we were wrong
The science are format's own conclusive
But peace first and war, last, these words are crucial
Conflict resolved but to those that want to brawl
Pain is inevitable, sufferin' is optional

Also droppin' the ball ain't reccommended
When life or death decisions are made within seconds
Of course we make the right ones, strategically through
Self defense but not by myself, Babu

We can hit back
If you talk that talk, you got's to live that
(This is self defense)
Whenever you front out, you gonna get back
Self defense, you wish you never did that
(This is self defense)

You wanna hit us? We can hit back
If you talk that talk, you got's to live that
(This is self defense)
Whenever you front out, you gonna get back
Self defense, you wish you never did that
(This is self defense)

Self defense is a must
Self defense is a must
Self defense is a must
