Tonz 'O' Gunz Lyrics

Tonz 'O' Gunz - Gang Starr

Written by:Christopher E Martin/Keith Elam

Tons o' guns everybody's getting strapped

Tons o' guns got to watch the way you act

Tons o' guns real easy to get

 

Tons o' guns bringing nothing but death

 

Tons o' guns are in the streets nowadays

It's big money and you know crime pays

 

Check your nearest overpopulated ghetto

They greet you with a pistol not trying to say hello

Mad kids packed 'cos the neighbourhood's like that

Want some sh*t that's fat catch a victim do a stick

Kids pulling triggers niggas killing niggaz

Five o they sit and wait and tally death toll figures

It's crazy there ain't no time to really chill

Jealous motherf**kers always want to act ill

22's 25's 44's 45's

Mack elevens ak's taking mad lives

What the f**k you gonna do in a situation

It's like you need to have steel just to feel relaxation

Tons o' guns

 

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

 

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

 

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

 

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

Tons o' guns you got we got they got

The state of affairs yo it's like mad chaos

I know a kid who just passed the other day

They shot him sixteen times so there he lay

You can pray for this sh*t to like cease

 

But until then a ni**a's going to pack a piece

And yo the devil's got assasination squads

 

Want to kill niggaz 'cos they're scared of god

They got camps where they train they learn to take aim

At a ni**a like a piece of game

And I'm not seeing that them days are gone

'Cos now we got chromes to put them where they belong

So me a rude boy from and in a brooklyn

 

F**k the b******t pain and suffering

I'm coming off with a foolproof plan

 

As if each every lyric was worth a hundred grand

I stand in the face of hatred

 

Letting off mad shots making devils run naked

Tons o' guns

 

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

 

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

The thing they know best is where the gun is kept

Tons o' guns everybody's getting strapped

Tons o' guns got to watch the way you act

Tons o' guns real easy to get

 

Tons o' guns bringing nothing but death

 

Tons o' guns but I don't glorify

'Cos more guns will come and much more will die

Why you I don't know black

 

Some motherf**kers just be living like that

 

They like to feel the chrome in their hands

The sh*t makes them feel like little big man

 

Twelve years old catching wreck

 

'Cos there ain't no supervision putting kids in check

 

People get wounded others they perish

And what about the mother and the child she cherish

 

The city is wild up steps the wild child

Tension anger living in danger

What the f**k you gonna do in a situation

It's like you need to have steel just to feel relaxation

 

Tons o' guns
