    [Shock G]
    Enter a new dimension
    Can't you feel the tension
    Ever heard the word prevention
    Well you really need to pay attention
    You only need a little bit
    So you want another hit?
    Call emergency on the telephone
    You're in the danger zone

    ("Just lounge, you're in the danger zone" -- Erick Sermon) 4X

    Verse One: Shock G

    You're in the zone, when you need another upper (another upper)
    You took a slip and goin out like a sucker (like a sucker)
    Matter of fact, you're more than just slippin
    You're way beyond control, you're on a mission (on a mission)
    You walk right through a wall
    To get a twenty, a forty or an Eight Ball
    And once you enter this area
    There ain't nothin scarier, all I wanna say to ya
    Is just back the hell up (back the hell up)
    You need to go where they let you do your thing in a cup (thing in a cup)
    And you take a diagnosis
    You see your boy Shock G wrote this (wrote this)
    To open up your mind
    Do you know who I am, deliverer of a rhyme
    My job is to verbally slay suckers
    Like an uzi spray motherfuckers (spray motherfuckers)
    The Underground is gonna get ya
    Now pay attention you're about to enter
    Into a new dimension
    Can't you feel the tension
    I'm sure you heard the word prevention
    So like I said pay attention
    You only need a little bit
    Ya still want another hit?
    Even if it's home-grown
    Yo, you're in the danger zone

    ("Just lounge, you're in the danger zone" -- Erick Sermon) 8X

    Verse Two: Kenny K

    On the corner, I see cocaine addicts (cocaine addicts)
    Givin static and about to go at it (bout to go at it)
    And then you hear somebody holler
    (Who was it K?) It was Dopefiend Carla
    She was waitin on a winner (on a winner)
    That HOE, every night she has crack for dinner (crack for dinner)
    But everybody's basin
    Even the suckers who are runnin this nation
    YES, I'm pullin no punches
    The government gets drugs in bunches
    Shock G get the nine
    But don't shoot until I finish my rhyme
    This zone, makes suckers stop breathin (stop breathin)
    Sweat bullets drop down to their knees and
    Start beggin for your pipe cause you're all in
    Sometimes you can feel yourself fallin
    [Shock G]
    Into a new dimension
    Can't you feel the tension?
    Don't let me forget to mention
    The Underground is puttin their two cents in
    What's the matter, feelin blue?
    Does this record bother you??
    If so, you need to leave it alone
    You're in the danger zone

    ("Just lounge, you're in the danger zone" -- Erick Sermon) 8X

    Verse Three: Shock G

    Caught a red light downtown (downtown)
    Freak was on the tip, cause my window was down
    Stuck her head in the car, it was Dopefiend Carla
    She said "Can you spare five dollars? I said hell no
    She said "I'm not asking for much"
    I said bitch, I'd rather give a crippled crab a crutch (crab a crutch)
    She said "Why you wanna clown me"
    I said "It's simple, I don't like fiends hangin round me
    Can't you see, that you got a disease?
    You weight sixty-six pounds, down from a hundred and three"
    The light turned green and I was gone
    She was livin in the danger zone
    It's a new dimension
    Can't you feel the tension
    You recognize this sound
    Go on, just put the pipe down
    What's the matter, feelin blue?
    Does this record bother you??
    If so you need to leave it alone
    Punk, you're in the danger zone

    [Shock G as a cop through a walkie talkie]
    Uhh I'm at the 9600 block of Macarthur, Apartment A
    (That's a 10-4, 419, uhh, backup for you is on route to your location)
    Ahh yes, victim ID
    Young black female, uhh eighteen, she's pregnant
    You-you-young black female, uhh eighteen, she's pregnant
    Apparent crack overdose I'm gonna need backup (4X)
    Nine-eleven, nine-eleven, nine-eleven
    Uhh cancel that backup call, we've lost her
