Everything They Owe

And in case you don’t know / Ghetto born black seeds still grow / We comin back / For everything you we
Imagine if we could go back
Actually talk to the motherfuckers 
That persevered (hehehe)
I mean the first motherfuckers 
That came in the slave ships
(Hey, excuse me, excuse me) Y’know? 

We back for everything you owe
No longer oppressed
Cause now we overthrow 
Those that placed us in this rotten mess
But let’s agree on strategy 
And pick out enemies right
Who stands accused of the abuse 
My own kind do right
Not disregardin what you thinkin
But you musta been the ship
Cause once I rip your whole shit is sinkin
Supreme ideology 
You claim to hold
Claimin that we all drug dealers 
With empty souls
That used to tempt me to roll
Commit to violence
In the midst of an act of war
Witnesses left silent
Shatter, black talon style
Thoughts I throw
It remains in your brain 
Then of course it grows
Even your babies can produce and rise
Picture a life 
Where black babies can survive past five
But we must have hope
Quotin the reverand from the pulpit
Refuse to turn the other cheek
We must defeat the evil culprit
Lace me with words of destruction
And I’ll explode
But supply me with the will to survive
And watch the world grow
This ain’t ’bout talkin ’bout problems
I bring solutions
Where’s the restitution
Stipulated through the constitution
You violated
Now I’m back to haunt your nights
Listen to the screams
Of the lives you sacrificed
And in case you don’t know
Ghetto born black seeds still grow
We comin back
For everything you owe

[Chorus] [Timothy]
I’m comin collectin the shit 
That belong to me
Motherfuckers are runnin and duckin
I’m a crazy nigga 
On a mission wit a bad mentality
Armed with missiles guns grenades
Pull out the pin, free I’m comin

[Over chorus]
“How do you plead Mr. Shakur
 how do you plead?”
How do I plead?
“Yes sir, how do you plead?”
Shit, you know how I plead

Not guilty on the grounds of insanity 
It was them or me
Bustin at my innocent family
Say they lookin for ki’s
I was home alone
Blind to the prelude
Bust in, talkin ’bout
“Where is the Quaaludes?”
What you say fool?
Where in the hell 
Is the search warrant?
No feedback is what he uttered
Before he screamed 
“Nigga motherfucker”
Dropped me to my knees 
I proceed to bleed
Sufferin a rain of blows 
To my hands and knees
Will I survive
Is God watchin?
I grab his gat 
And bust in self-defense
My only option
God damn
Now they got me goin 
To the county jail
And my family can’t pay 
This outrageous bail
Try to offer me a deal
They told me if I squeal
Move me, and my people
To a mansion in Brazil
Not me
So this is how it ends
No friends
I’ll be stressed and they just
Reposessed my Benz
Told the judge it was self-defense
He won’t listen
So I’m bumpin this in federal prison
Givin everything I owe

[Chorus] (x2)
