  • Intro:

    Listen you fuckers, you screwheads
    Here's a man who won't take it anymore
    A man who stood up against
    The skunk, the kunts, the dogs, the fill, the shit
    Here is some one who stood up
    Here is...

    Yeah! this is it for anybody usin bodies
    presents, Xzibit movin at the speed of life
    Yeah! check it

    Verse One:

    It took a long time comin but we waited
    Xzibit went from underated
    To now most antcipaded
    never would of thought that I would rock your set
    And get love and respect without no special effects
    Only the rugged ruff shit that the hard rock need
    Lyrics must contain more then just clothes bitches and weed
    thinkin' how you like to see the next man bleed
    Tryin to glority greed
    Livin life at ridiculuos speed-indeed!
    The main goal to achieve, is to succeed
    Have it laid out for your seed
    But the world gets colder every day by day
    Physically, mentally gettin drained by L.A.
    Trying to find piece of mind
    is like trying to find a gold mine
    it just wont happen
    no time for relaxin
    Real soldiers of fortune
    the front line of the action
    So never show a nigga what you packin'
    "You know what i'm sayin'?"
    It's too much weight to be juggling
    who do you picture when you think about struggling
    Kids in the bed, no food stomach bubbilin
    Niggas in the E-class heavy drug smugglin


    yes movin...
    At the speed of life

    Verse Two:

    And plus I feel that no style is darker than mine
    There was a time it was all about beats and rhymes
    But nowadays the blind just follow the blind
    and when I die!
    Niggas still recite these lines
    to rock the heads, waterbeds citys and towns
    Bringin strength to the masses that be holdin it down
    the underground! to upper echelon and beyond
    Xzibit rock and roll the streets like a vagabond
    Nigga wanna trip you gettin dissed like a blond bitch
    mackin to Farrakhan, I run game like a marathon
    It's here today then tomorrow it's gone
    It's the law of the land
    a straight modern day babylon!


    Movin...yeah! yeah! like this
    Like this...at the speed of life
    Ah! Bring it live, yeah!

    Verse Three:

    Xzibit lookin at the earth thru wide angles
    I found a stairway to heaven in a city of lost angels
    Where small situations turn to altercation
    with a heavy ass price
    'cause niggas don't fight no more!
    before hip hop was all about drama
    anything for a dollar before Kane fucked Madona
    Xzibit maintain and stayed bent like a comma
    Just me and my bottle
    we shall lead not follow
    Emcees be full of shit
    but they style be hollow
    it seems you've bitin off more
    than you can possibly swallow
    just a day in the life of a man named X
    only blunt and latex for the oppisite sex
    you see niggas comin thru to smoke and pay respect
    ever since fifteen, I been ready for anything
    whatever they bring in any shape, form or fashion
    I live to the fullest and rip rhyme with a passion
    but in the mean while if worse comes to worst
    bust a round or bust a verse whatever comes first
    Yeah! we got it locked down tight
    Xzibit bring truth to the light
    shit is movin at the speed of life


    At the speed of life
