  • (Oh oh oh)

    Load It, cock It, aim and shoot
    Load It, cock It, aim and shoot

    Living like we bulletproof
    We bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (I say) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (Oh) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot

    Some will die over oil
    Kill over land
    Charge you for taxes
    And blame Uncle Sam
    Read you your rights
    And charge you for nothing
    Now who's really gangsta and tell me who's frontin'
    Murder your sons, ravage your daughters
    Here overseas and across the waters
    Tanks and missiles
    Bombs and grenades
    Inject your land with guns and AIDS
    You betta' pray to the most high or who ever you praise
    'Cause politicians can't help you they puppets to slaves
    Trying to get paid and you are too
    Whatcha gone do when the gun is pointed at you (like bank robbers)

    Living like we bulletproof
    We bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang bang)
    We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (We gone die)
    Living like we bulletproof
    We bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang bang)
    (I say) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    (Oh) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (Hey world)

    Get you a paper
    Turn on the news
    Ride through the hood
    I witness the blues
    How can you ignore it
    It's easy to spot it
    A trap house, a liquor store and your city's got it
    And my city's got it, and their city's got it
    This world is chaotic
    And love is symbolic
    So life don't get cherished,
    So our babies perish, and your babies perish
    Now tell me who's careless
    Now who should I pray to
    What should I pray for
    You can't pay the preacher for your redemption
    I know where we're headed
    I already read it
    The good book done said it (like cowboys and Indians)

    (We just) Living like we bulletproof (Yeah)
    We bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang bang)
    We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (We gone die, living)
    Living like we bulletproof
    We (we) bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang bang)
    (I say) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    (Oh) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (We gone die, living)

    They say tomorrow's not promised today
    But today I promise if we don't make our own way
    Somebody'll take it from us
    Snatch it like rats to cheese
    So, lord help me please
    Cause I rather die on my feet than to live on my knees
    Living like I'm bulletproof cocking the glock and aim n shoot
    My future's ever clear 180 proof
    So I open the bottle then swallow my pride and drink the pain away
    I take shots and just lay up then fade away
    Dreaming of betta' days
    Dreaming of betta' pay,
    But we got our work cut out for us so we betta' pray
    Pray to uphold the weak, not for eternal sleep,
    But if I die I pray the lord my soul to keep

    Living like we bulletproof (woo)
    We (we) bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang bang)
    (I say) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (I say I load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (We load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    Living like we bulletproof
    We (we) bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
    (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang bang)
    (I say) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (load it, cock it, aim and shoot)
    (Oh) We load it, cock it, aim and shoot
    (Oh lawd)
