[Chorus]
Believe me! It's our TIIIIME now to let 'em know
(WHAT?!) It's our TIIIIME now to let 'em know
Believe me! It's our TIIIIME now to let 'em know
(WHAT?!) It's our TIIIIME now..

[DMX]
I like my blunts heavily hashed, bitches heavily assed
Joints ready to stash, got 'em ready to blast (WHAT?!)
Give 'em plenty and pass, the thing off (woo!) toss that
Get pulled over, we already lost that, of course black (uh!)
Floss that, lose that, get that? Come up off that
You ain't choose that, but you with that, now spit back (c'mon)
y'all niggaz got me all wrong (WHAT?!)
I'm still a grimy nigga (WHAT?!)
and I still give it to you, on your song (WHAT?!)
I let you niggaz live for a minute, you get goofy
Told you go 'head, drop a few albums, I'll do a movie (aight)
But when I come back, c'mon dog, respect my slot (UHH)
Ain't no get in where I fit in, bitch I'm straight to the top (aight)
And whoever don't like it, FUCK YOU FAGGOT, bring it! (WHAT?!)
Nigga don't want to walk it but, stay tryin to sing it
What I gotta start smackin you guys around again?
Don't make no motherfuckin sense, y'all some grown ass men!

[Chorus]

[DMX]
I don't play with you cats like I used to
Cause well I ain't your father (uh-huh)
This time it's gon' be a little harder
Told niggaz to "Do You", courtesy of Flex
Put out "... And Then There Was X" and then there was X
And then there was X again, ain't my next of kin
Just some hardheaded dickridin grown-ass men (uhh, uhh)
c'mon with the bullshit (WHAT?!) please, don't touch that
You might, bust yo' gun dog but we bust back (aight)
And what's that, a lot of dead homies
That ain't yours (UHH) leave it alone, you don't know me
Respect the nine or catch a wreckless twenty-nine (ahh)
For every bone in your spine (ahh) make a nigga recline (ahh)
This whole rap shit is mine (WHAT?!) and I'm not sharin (uhh)
Niggaz gettin popped every day, not carin (woo!)
Peep niggaz starin, but they don't want NUTTIN
Nowadays niggaz get it for frontin, motherfucker!
Cocksuckin-ass niggaz!

[Chorus]

[DMX]
Now there's a lot of - bitch niggaz that's rich niggaz I stick niggaz
(uhh) Pick niggaz and hit niggaz I lift niggaz (uhh, uhh)
Wannabe player, stay in the park
Cause the grownups is over here, and we drinkin (WHAT?!)
Fuck is you thinkin? (WHAT?!)
X ain't changed, still with the same shit (uhh)
Ain't with the game shit (uhh) bust leave a stain shit (uhh)
Watch the game change quick (WHAT?!)
Some niggaz married to the game
Nigga like me? Married to the same bitch (c'mon!)
I'm a dog from the hood, so I gotta rap from the hood
Put a snake and a cat to the wood
MAN!! if you, only knew
WHAT IT IS!! that I'm, goin through
WHEN IT IS!! that I'm, goin through it
You ain't gon let me get ahold of that thing, cause I'ma do it! (woo!)
Pop, stop drop watch and roll niggaz (uhh)
Hold niggaz dog I can't control niggaz! (c'mon!)

[Chorus - repeat 2X]

    General CommentThat's one of the oldest critiques of DMX, that he plays holy for like one song off an album, and then raps about immoral stuff the rest of the time...
    Recognize that DMX is one of the most manic rappers around, and that by highlighting both sides, he is getting at the duality of human nature. The worst people in the world can usually justify what they do within their own moral frameworks, so you shouldn't be surprised that DMX genuinely believes that he is on god's side.

    Most rappers talk about all the bad, hard stuff they've done without giving a moment's thought to the overriding moral implications meaning that they haven't really thought too hard about what they are saying, which means that they probably didn't even really do it at all. I'm not saying that DMX has killed as many people as he describes in some of his songs, or even necessarily anybody, but he's more "real" than most rappers from the past ten years. When Tupac and Biggie died, as far as I'm concerned, DMX picked up the torch and ran with it.

    Bloodline Anthem annoyed me at first, I hadn't heard such a distortioned, 80s sounding hook from him yet, but I like it pretty well now.

    Homophobia aside, "hard-headed, dick-ridin', grown-ass men" is hilarious, a great line.

    Also, "I don't play with you cats like I used to cuz, well, I ain't your father," is an awesome line. All rappers insult other rappers, but few with as much finesse as DMX does here.

    Good song. I didn't like the new DMX, post "...And Then There Was X," but it has started growing on me ever since about 04/05. I've got to get "Year of the Dog Again" ASAP.

    General CommentJust to touch on what BigDaddyChaCha said "The worst people in the world can usually justify what they do within their own moral frameworks"

    DMX illustrates this point even more with the lyric "There's a difference between doing wrong and being wrong" from another one of his songs.

    The point of the lyrics again is to show you can do wrong and still be right. If you believe you are right you may be its your opinion and if other people feel you did wrong at least you know you were doing right or you were trying to. As opposed to doing wrong and knowing very well you are not doing what you are doing for the right reasons.
