    [talking]
    Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, Nas, uh, yo, yo
    Life, they wonder, can they take me under?
    Nah, never that, nah, yo, yo

    I come from the housin tenement buildings
    Unlimited killings, menaces marked for death
    Better known as the projects where junkies and rock heads dwell
    Though I owe to it my success
    With survival of the fittest, everyday is a chal'
    I would think I'm a part of U.S.A. and be proud
    Confronted with racism, started to feel foreign
    Like, the darker you are the realer your problems
    I reached for the stars but I just kept slippin
    On this life mission, never know what's next
    Ancient kings from Egypt, up to Julius Cezar
    Had a piece of the globe, every continent
    Yo, there's Asia, Africa, Europe, France, Japan
    Pakistan, America, Afghanstan
    Yo, there's Protestants, Jews, Blacks, Arabics
    Call a truce, world peace, stop actin like savages
    No war, we should take time and think
    The bombs and tanks makes mankind extinct
    But since the beginning of time it's been men with arms fightin
    Lost lives in the Towers and Pentagon, why then?
    Must it go on, we must stop the killin
    Tell me why we die, we all God's children

    [Chorus - Amerie, Nas in background]
    All this hate can't last forever (uh, c'mon)
    It's time that we stand together (yeah, for the world)
    Everybody wants to rule the world (what, what, what, what, what, c'mon)
    World (peace), world (peace), world (peace), world

    Yo, there's brothers on the block, posted up like they own it
    That's they corner, from New York to California
    Got blocks locked down
    Like, "dog you safe whenever you with me, see this is my town"
    So the youngsters, grows in ghettos, goes to prison
    At an early age, already know it's against him
    So in order for him to survive, one day he must
    Open up his eyes to the set backs and rise
    'Cause, everybody wants a shot, in this land of opportunity
    Look at what this country's got
    There shouldn't be nobody homeless
    How can the president fix other problems when he ain't fixed home yet
    The earth wasn't made for one man to rule alone
    To all colors increases, to home it belongs
    I want land, mansions, banks and gold
    The diamonds in Africa, oil in my control
    The world's natural resources, all its residuals
    But then comes foes, I have to gaurd it with missels
    And I become the most wanted
    But is it worth hearin a million people problems and followed by Secret Service
    I guess, attempts at my life with loaded barrels
    So move over Colin Powell or just throw in the towel, yo

    [Chorus]

    Y'all know that's my style, to hit you at the right time
    No other compares to what Nas write down
    Tell you my dreams, show you my pain is yours
    You could get what you love, be a chain in cause
    You alive right now
    There's so many that's dead or locked up inside the beast, I'm a hot light now
    It's whatever man think of manifest to the real
    The plan is to wake up 'cause time reveals
    All this hate can't forever last
    All my ghetto heroes in Heaven, it's like you right here and never passed
    You just transcend, I know I'm gon' see you again
    Hopin I reach the world leaders and win
    Ain't nothin without struggle, listen up, it's critical
    We used to fear arms, now the weapons are chemical
    In Hip-Hop, the weapons are lyrical
    To be the best you challenge the best, then the blessings are spiritual
    Top of the world for the kid and unless
    Poppin any rapper's head off his shoulders no contest
    I know the Most High hear me, so fly you can't near me
    You scared of a mirror, my theory is that - knowledge is power
    To every projects and every street corner, we gotta get ours now

    [Chorus]

    [talking]
    Yo, niggas ain't forget shit, know what I'm sayin?
    Niggas ain't forget nothin man,
    The men, women and children killed by the police and shit
    Niggas ain't gon' forget that, you know what I mean?
    Yo, what this war just show me is like, whatever you want out of life
    Whatever you feel is rightfully yours, go out and take it
    Even if that means blood and death
    You know, that's what I was raised up on, that's what this country's about
