    [Chorus - singing]
    There's a war in the streets tonight
    And nobody's really feelin' alright
    I got a blunt for a chronic, a juice for my tonic
    I know now that I'm feelin' right if it goes down
    'Cause my third eye sees the lowdown
    And I know it's not my time to go now
    'Cause God's got my back in this showdown
    So I know we'll be alright

    [Nas]
    Yeah, Brooks Brothers overcoat, know the ropes, smooth is holdin' those
    Briefcases, silk ties, slick as them older folks
    Silver fo'-fo', got no,
    My chauffer driver just left some of my colleagues smokin' that Cali
    Caught a glimpse of myself in the Barney's shop window
    Kinda' see my father's features creepin' in a little
    Got an office on Broadway, business in Jamaica
    Tell my daughter try the hardest so the best schools'll take her
    And I'm late to a dite with my wife, I realize
    I stopped to shop, had to get her some type surprise
    And I'm walkin' through it, chaos is all around me
    But God got me, no fear, through the fire pride stop

    [Chorus - singing]
    There's a war in the streets tonight
    And all this drama's got me feelin' uptight
    I don't know what I'll do if I don't see my boo
    'Cause she's standin' on the corner of Linden Boulevard
    Holding our baby in her baby in her arms
    So hold on, your daddy's in sight

    [Nas]
    Yeah, Nine-four, Destiny opens her eyes
    For the first time, praise God, baby mom's cryin'
    Planned to be a strong black family
    But we both were too young, too strung, too much flashin'
    New come, I caught verbal assassin runnin' with
    Nothin' but the worst type, worst fight
    But we brought my baby home the first night
    Cursed like sailors, burst out the crib
    Ragin' in my new car bought from entertainment
    Champaign and gainin' clout fast, whiplash
    Did this bitch just pass in the club pugged up, stupid ass
    Grabbed her by the pony tail, "never disrespect me"
    I'm a street vet, regret the sex, but not Desi
    Moved back to your grandma, I'm single, the land's mine
    She keeps the Benz, I'm all in the streets again
    Squeezin' the pen, released again, chart toppers,
    Hard-bottoms blessed the feet, now less baby mom's problems
    New woman, she's great, this a different world,
    Checkin' out my wife's chemistry with my little girl
    It's so amazin' playin', life is so crazy
    I've grown up the thankful for lessons God gave me

    [Chorus - singing]
    There's a war in the streets tonight
    And nobody's really feelin' alright
    I got a blunt for a chronic, a juice for my tonic
    I know now that I'm feelin' right if it goes down
    'Cause my third eye sees the lowdown
    And I know it's not my time to go now
    'Cause God's got my back in this showdown
    So I know we'll be alright
