Yo, yes yes yo
Lock your door
(Die, die, die)
Lock your door
(Die, die, die)
Lock your door
(Die die die)

Lock your door
(Die, die, die)
Lock your door
(Die, die, die)
Lock your door
(Die, die, die)

I remember comin' from Haiti growin' up in Brooklyn
On Flat Bush got my first sneakers tooken
Learn the game quick so I got my first device
Mom move to Jersey so we could get a better life
But little did she know a ghetto is a ghetto
Good time found myself like Jimmy Walker sayin', "Cello"

Yellow cheese bus gettin' beatings if I cuss
Lay away another day in stripped Lees and letegrays
But the lyrical bomber momma tried to stop
Paranoid 'cause this boy around my neighborhood got shot
Name plate hair straight metal braces on my teeth
Fat laces on my feet when crack first hits the streets

I use to push up on a girl Salt 'N' Peppa Push It Push It
D's in school 'cause the music was my focus
Jokes in class but when I learned I didn't pass
I knew it was my ass with my mothers leather lash
Belt buckle said Nelly Nel similar to Melle Mel
Hits the third rail Beat Street made Gazzels sells

As the tale gets poetic watch the streets turn magnetic
Towanna Balley's rape is alleged
Hang out in hooky places watch streets corners turn to oasis
Young men aspire to be Scarfaces

In the year of the dragon
Lots of men disappear
Quiet as it's kept
They won't be around next year

Yo yo, watch out for the black van
Yo yo, last days, last days
Planes exploding yo close your door
Yo nobody's safe Halloween October 31
Yo, close your door yo kids are disappearing, yo

Late at night the light was bright on the ave
I went to pick up cash from my cousin little Kev
He told me Joe had a dream in jail he got steamed
His wife became a fiend fuckin' little Raheim

Damn, drugs will make you do terrible things
He told me when he get out he's murderin' by any means
The day came I saw him on the train
He pulled his gun and aimed and started firing like the son of Kane

I saw civilians runnin' for their life
Like the Devil on judgment night running from Christ
Ice and Armarretto please as I fell to my knees
Being shot by Ferguson the vigilante

In the year of the dragon
Lots of men disappear
Quiet as it's kept
They won't be around next year

So CNN naw what I'm sayin'?
Ferguson is at court and he's his own lawyer
You know what I mean what's goin' on, talk to me
This is definitely the last days
Jewish calendar has already arrived the year 2000
Watch ya back, watch ya back
Watch ya back, die, die, die, die

Clef it kind of remind me of this chick I once knew
Use to be a dime now she's strung out in Bellevue
See the serpent played tricks run game like the Knicks
Build you up just to lose the championship

I seen her reminisce over Wu-Tang could It Be that Simple
She lost her Prince cause there were Thieves In the Temple
Tragic depression made her lose all her teeth
Lost and turned out gave her body to the streets
Sweet Mary don't you weep, still water runs deep
So be careful of the company you keep

In the year of the dragon
Lots of men disappear
Quiet as it's kept
They won't be around next year

Yo, I'm frustrated you know what I mean?
Use to work at McDonalds just got fired
If I get in I'm sprayin' everybody the boss the manager
Yo, these are definitely the last days

Yo, here he comes with his gun yo duck duck
Black Panther yo, nobody's protected
Yo, 6 6 6 watch your back don't get caught in the rapture
Yo, AIDS, Moses the plaque watch your back

Pharaoh let my people go
Yo, watch your back Last days
Last days Nobody's protected
Yo, my little sister is Rosey Sharen
Yo, yo, nobody's protected
Not even Rosey Sharen, nobody's protected

Yo, you come try to get my sister
I'm a get you first
I'm a be driving a hearse
'Cause nobody's protected
