Lyrics

Everywhere I go.
Everyone I meet.
I give the same advice.
No matter what they seek.
Stop before you trip.
Look before you leap.
Hear the simple words.
Think before you speak.

Verse 1:

I see that smoke that you blow.
When you in these streets.
I can't believe that you kids think that shit is heat.
Got you acting confident.
Very tongue-in-cheek.
Thinking that you pimpin.
When you trickin.
Now you want a treat.
Very quick to raise your voice.
And you don't retreat.
Guess that papa never taught ya.
Talk is very cheap.
And now it's bill collection time.
And shit is getting deep.
Listen, master of your thoughts.
Bitch, slave to what you speak.

Chorus 2:

Everywhere I go.
Everyone I meet.
I give the same advice.
No matter what they seek.
Stop before you trip.
Look before you leap.
Hear the simple words.
Think before you speak.
Never run your mouth.
If you wanna roll with me.
I don't like that type of bullshit.
In my company.
You talk a lot of shit.
I hear about it every week.
Front like it really don't matter.
But think before you speak.

Verse 2:

Running off at the mouth.
Once again.
As you fight and you wrestle.
Maximum level.
That's when you ain't talking shit.
As you heckle.
Fuck around with me.
Gotta be somebody special.
I don't miss when I aim for shit.
So you'd better be extremely sharp.
On that day my fellow.
Understand that shit later if ya gots ta.
Better be careful.
This shit might prove to be fatal.
This is the time to be respectful.
Your next word could be something that is helpful.
Or it could make you very regretful.

Chorus 3:

Everywhere I go.
Everyone I meet.
I give the same advice.
No matter what they seek.
Stop before you trip.
Look before you leap.
Hear the simple words.
Think before you speak.
Never run your mouth.
If you run into me.
I don't like that type of bullshit.
Kill it instantly.
You talk a lot of shit.
I hear about it every week.
Front like it really don't matter.
But think before you speak.

Verse 3:

Every syllable shapes the physical.
All things pivotal.
Each move, critical.
You initiate.
Then participate.
Don't get pissed off.
When you're found in this state.
Half the time, running blind.
Other times, gunning blind.
Going off on the world.
You're the one undermined.
But it goes undefined.
Never identified.
Bound by their ignorance.
Slow moving suicide.
Limited language.
Limiting your world.
Every man.
Any woman.
Any boy.
Every girl.
If you never learn anything else.
About the universe and how shit works.
Here's a lesson you can start with first.
Every verse.
From your birth.
Till the day you return to the earth.
Is dispersed and reversed.
Amplified.
Reapplied.
Till the point it collides.
And that shit becomes your blessing.
Or your mother fucking curse.

Chorus 4:

Everywhere I go.
Everyone I meet.
I give the same advice.
No matter what they seek.
Stop before you trip.
Look before you leap.
Hear the simple words.
Think before you speak.
Never run your mouth.
If you wanna roll with me.
I don't like that type of bullshit.
Around my energy.
You talk a lot of shit.
I hear about it every week.
Front like it really don't matter.
But think before you speak.
