"911" as written by Richell Bonner, R. Edwards and M. Johnson....
There ain't no trouble in rock (rock)
On every block (block)
Late for School, Late for Work
But ahead of these cops (cops)
My credit is shock, in the detinate box (box)
Like, people take my life and that's pathetic as Pac's (Pac's)
A waste of the talent, Say my boys is just no where
Placed on the planet, remain in poisonous warfare
Derelict Arabic terrorists in the air
Shit arrogant apparent to punish people by their heritage,
Nato barriers, Hate embarrassed
There is the faith to cherish
In your room face to face with race awareness
A race to us?? army bombin' your God is with you
Calm the war, we gotta start our pistol
Cause if you right and, know you right, then where's your ritious ways
We sacrifice, snatch your life, many nights and days
Follow me into equality we might behave
And only christ can say the trife will reunite again

America Owns, Without a fucking care in my dome
Bearin' my bones, so far away staring at home
Stay at my zone, falling asleep late with my chrome
Feelin' hype from these rockets burning like straightenin' in the cones
Stay at the streets, bullshit and plans to beef
Spray at your peeps for christmas, give a key to my niece
Real nigga's feel us and fear us
Gorillaz beat on they chest when
Dangerous lyricist, I hope that you hear us
The spirit of Bugz is still in me
God bless it the trinity
Cause my bullets they come in three's like trilogy's
Put the knife away, missles away strike and blaze
So much smoke you can't tell the difference between night and day
Right away blow your life away, so light your haze
Hold tight grenede's so when it blows I'm slightly grazed
Kuniva might be crazed unleashin' unlikely rage
The next time you hear a verse from me I might be caged


Everynight I talk to a black hawk, taking herion in bulks
Watch my body hit the chalks
I'm too lazy, masculines got me crazy
Rape this old lady, while the bitch was having a baby
And I ain't never going home, Bizarre can for go
It's cold I'll be for cyphering, right from wrong
As I sit in my seat and remain calm
And close my eyes and wait for the bomb (Here it comes!)

I'm gettin' the fuck on, I'm aggrivated
I know I'll make it, I'm in a place full of hatred
Treatin' my life like a sacrred
Try to check me, I break your neck
Disrespect me you get injected
It's hectic with some bullshit that happen
You least expected
We just don't accept it nigga
I go ahead, lift my trigger
Get rid of bitches, pay you a visit, then get your shit lit
I'm a nitwit with a big dick, and big balls
I don't miss shit
I hit all, whoever that did this
We Gonna Getch'all

Yo, yo
Now whether its Sadam or Bin Laden
that's been startin all this trouble for us
Creepin horrors doin show after show, sleepin on the tour bus
We lost Aaliyah, lost our families, it takes no Tenges
You don't need us to say the world is fucked up dawgs, we can see it
Now it seems the public needs this shit to calm its kids
'cause they findin out how you lied about your twisted sins
They say we bad for you but shit our music is your friend
They can't deter you from the truth cause we're the helping hand

We are one, and one is all
We are, We are, we are one
And one is all

    General CommentThis is just a generally anti-war song and a very good one considering I don't really like rap.

    General CommentTo all the ignorant assholes who say this song sucks because there is rap in it can GTFO. The Gorillaz have had rap artist appear in many of their songs and anybody who claims to be a gorillaz fan wouldn't be so piss poor idiotic to label all rap as thug music.

    I want to ask how somebody can take this song as being thuggish or gangsta? There are no lyrics that depict gang violence or drugs (Hell, that's something that Damon has dabbed into a lot) Or is it that when you hear a rap song that sounds like something you normally wouldn't listen to, your small mind feels threatened by the change and you have to shut down all mental capabilities and call it "thug".

    This song is about 9/11. Nothing about the streets. Anybody who feels they can judge an entire rap group or an entire fucking genre by what somebody says can take the dicks out of their ears and actually read the fucking lyrics and form a well organized opinion instead of just blindly hating something.

    General CommentLoud and Demigod are just narrow-minded idiots who can't take the fact that someone likes a genre of music they don't appreciate.
    While you might not like D12, they were perfect for this collaboration.
    And just because I generally like rap, that doesn't automatically make me a 'gangster wannabe' or a 'thug'.
    Heed my advice, and stop assholes to other people based on their music tastes, you pussies.

    General CommentI've finally heard this song, and I honestly thought it was the most beautiful thing I ever heard. The music is just incredible. Who the hell cares who the 'Rillaz are working with as long as they can make music that sounds like this?
