  • Yeah, ballad of a dead soldier
    This is the ballad of a dead soldier
    This is the ballad of a dead soldier
    Come play the ballad of a dead soldier..

    The plan, to take command of the whole family
    Though underhanded, to be the man it was planned
    All my road dawgs, official mob *****z love to act up
    The first to bomb we rob *****z
    I can be, lost in my own mind
    To be the boss only thought's grip on chrome nines
    *****z get tossed up, war scars, battlefield memories
    Swore I saw the devil in my empty glass of Hennesey
    Talkin to a ***** on a tight leash
    Screamin "**** the police," as I ride through the night streets
    Lil' child runnin wild, toward his danger
    What's the cause don't be alarmed death to all strangers
    Maybe I'm a madman
    A pistol grabbin ***** unleash the Sandman
    Promisin merciless retaliation, nothin' is colder
    Close your eyes, hear the ballad of a dead soldier

    Thug for Life I will be (this is the ballad of a dead soldier)
    A life of crime I will lead (close your eyes, hear the ballad of a dead soldier)
    If you play the game, you play to win (this is the ballad of a dead soldier)
    It's a crazy world full of sin (close your eyes)

    Completely lost, revenge at all costs
    Payback's a *****, switch now the trick's crossed
    Tossed up and never to be heard of
    A single witness screamin bloody murder, murder
    Blast tell me homey what you see now?
    A blind man and a dead body, I'm read' to leave town
    And get my cash though, hook up with Kastro
    Homey had to blast on the task force
    Stupid coppers tried to play us out, never that
    They took my money and my stash, time to get 'em back (heh heh)
    Upon my secret arrival
    Two glock four-fives, time for survival
    Death to my rivals, tell me what you want lord?
    Nobody left after the death of a drug lord (eh eh)
    The situation's critical
    Nothin is colder, than hear the ballad of a dead soldier

    Thug for Life I will be (this is the ballad of a dead soldier)
    A life of crime I will lead (close your eyes, hear the ballad of a dead soldier)
    If you play the game, you play to win (this is the ballad of a dead soldier)
    Close your eyes and hear the ballad of a dead soldier

    Be a coward, put yo' hands to the moon
    When my glocks rang out, the *****z came out boom!
    Who want to see me in the challenge?
    So merciless I'm terrifyin *****z in my ballads, do you feel me?
    Capo or Capi-tan, one day I'll be the Don
    Until then, remain strong
    My only fear of death is reincarnation
    Bustin at my adversaries like a mental patient
    To all my *****z facin sixty years, sheddin tattooed tears
    Another suicidal on the peer
    Takin private planes, tryin to survive the game
    For all my homies that'll never be alive again
    All he promised us is death *****
    Take a breath come be the last one left *****, it's real now
    Villain to fantasize, ain't nothin colder
    Listen you can hear it - the ballad of a dead soldier

    Thug for Life I will be (this is the ballad of a dead soldier)
    A life of crime I will lead (close your eyes, hear the ballad of a dead soldier)
    If you play the game, you play to win (this is the ballad of a dead soldier)
    Close your eyes and hear the ballad of a dead soldier

    This go out to Cato, Mental
    All the *****z that passed away
    To Geronimo ? all the down *** riders
    All the *****z that put it down, all the soldiers
    All the *****z that go through that day to day struggled
    This is the ballad of a dead soldier!
    All the *****z that passed on
    All the *****z with ambition and money in they heart
    All the *****z that want some and that don't take none
    Hahaha.. it's the ballad of a dead soldier!
    The police are so scared of us
    All the feds they aware of us
    They want to see us dead
    They got pictures of a ***** head, ballad of a dead soldier!
    Tryin to see me in chains, ****
    Them *****z'll never breathe again
    Before they put me in a cell they'll see me in hell
    Cause it's the ballad of a dead soldier!
    Got my pistols cocked
    Run the whole **********in' block, **** the cops!
    The police? We run these streets *****
    Ain't heard the ballad of a dead soldier!
    These *****z can't see me, half the world want to be me
    Multi-millionaire, ****, it ain't fair
    But *****, you know - it's the ballad of a dead soldier!
