[Raekwon] Pit bull fights, niggaz is bustin the lights Undercovers gettin killed for drugs - yo Fiends is basin, runners is licensed to fight Young gangstas chase sneakers and snubs - and yo Elevator's broken, pissy stairwells and shells Old men gossip with tales, you know? Police burners with bodies on 'em, bury 'em Worry for minutes then we fire them (blaow!) I see firemen, ambulances, narcotic mansions So melodic, rock chronic, pop tonic scramblin See all these niggaz into gamblin - yo Just give me square feet, uniquely I'm handlin niggaz Done danced with niggaz, plus yo, threw niggaz in vans Left him on trains, his veins got ham in 'em Take a message, he ran, it was a quarter to four plan He had me on the floor with my man We both drugged out, scholars with grams Tri-colored rocks, follow the hands, full sorrow in plans Make one false move you blam Eh yo take the globe right out of ya land We broke out in Iran.
[Chorus: Polite] Eh yo it's eight million stories in the city Niggas actin' shifty, Ice Water back on the grizzly Brand new handgun that hold about fifty It's a new boss in town like Mauseberg Mickey Eight million stories and six is from the hood A real live hustler up to no good They needed more yae-yo to ease they habit They said we fell off, the streets don't believe you faggots!
[Raekwon] Where all the wolves live, sub-machine guns and big beamers Yo circle the crib, you see teamsters that try you again Little niggas is blind, the nines fly out and slap a few men That's mine, let up off 'em again Take seventy more shots, the remedy, Wu through the fence This bench God, lays in gents Eh yo pop the head off right under the tents This is more current events, pay attenti The legend is here, as long as you know him he coffins ya men What? Bulletproof pimps, big hammers, multiple flips As long as it's bread, you know you was hit Eh yo let that stack get rinsed Play the back, sharp as a fuck, ownin' my own shit Grown niggas get moments to vent Give 'em the real Lex Diamond Story, welcome 'em in
