Fire Squad (消防队) - J. Cole (J. 科尔)

Lyrics by:Mark Farner

Composed by:Mark Farner

Produced by:J. Cole/J. Cole/"Vinylz" Hernandez

Ni**a why you actin' like a ho?

 

Know that I'ma ride for ya,

Either way it go

Tell me, girl why you

Be stressin' me for time?

 

When you tell me you love me,

Can't you see I'm tryna climb?

Damn my ni**a

Why you actin' like a b**ch?

 

If you scared to take a chance,

How the f**k we gon' get rich?

Come here baby

Why you always insecure?

 

Hold on tight to a ni**a and be sure

 

Ain't a way around it no more,

I am the greatest

A lotta niggas sat on the throne,

I am the latest

I am the bravest,

Go toe to toe with the giants

I ain't afraid of you niggas,

I'll end up fading you niggas

'Fore it's all said and done,

This ni**a need medicine

My uzi, it weighed a ton,

I need me a better gun

In fact I just might need two,

Cause niggas say they the one

And I got something to prove

Forgive me lord here they come,

BLAOOW

Ni**a why you actin' like a ho?

 

Know that I'ma ride for ya,

Either way it go

Tell me, girl why you

Be stressin' me for time?

 

When you tell me you love me,

Can't you see I'm tryna climb?

Damn my ni**a

Why you actin' like a b**ch?

 

If you scared to take a chance,

How the f**k we gon' get rich?

Come here baby

Why you always insecure?

 

Hold on tight to a ni**a and be sure

 

My inhibitions, fighting my intuition

 

Premature premonition

 

Showin me the demoliton

Of these phony niggas

So ahead of my time

Even when I rhyme about the future

I be reminiscing

You want the truth well come and listen

I'm like that time you bagged a dime

And checked ya phone

And saw it was a number missing

As fate passes you by, half of you try

The other half of you fry,

Too high to actually fly

One day y'all have to decide,

Who you gon' be

A scary ni**a or a ni**a

That's gon' rule like me

Keep it true like me,

Cole you might be

 

Like the new Ice Cube,

Meets the new Ice-T

Meets 2 Live Crew,

Meets the new Spike Lee

Meets Bruce like Wayne,

Meets Bruce like Lee

Meets '02 Lil Wayne,

In a new white tee

Meets KD, ain't no ni**a

That can shoot like me! BLAOOOW

Ni**a why you actin' like a ho?

 

Know that I'ma ride for ya,

Either way it go

Tell me, girl why you

Be stressin' me for time?

 

When you tell me you love me,

Can't you see I'm tryna climb?

Damn my ni**a

Why you actin' like a b**ch?

 

If you scared to take a chance,

How the f**k we gon' get rich?

Come here baby

Why you always insecure?

 

Hold on tight to a ni**a and be sure

(Who's the king?)

 

Came from the bottom ni**a,

With stains on my shirt

What you expected from me,

I came from the dirt

(Who's the king?)

Money my motivator,

The songs that I sing

 

Picture a peasant passin'

From pawn to a king

 

You tell me ya still love me,

If so then let me go

Will I return or will I burn,

Never know

Look in my eyes

And see the future

But don't sugar coat it

 

Listen

 

History repeats itself

And that's just how it goes

 

Same way that these rappers

Always bite each others flows

 

Same thing that my ni**a Elvis

Did with Rock n Roll

 

Justin Timberlake, Eminem,

And then Macklemore

 

While silly niggas argue over

Who gon' snatch the crown

 

Look around, my ni**a,

White people have snatched the sound

 

This year I'll prolly go

To the awards dappered down

Watch Iggy win a Grammy

As I try to crack a smile

I'm just playin',

But all good jokes contain true sh*t

Same rope you climb up on,

They'll hang you with

But not Jermaine, my aim too sick

I bang ni**a, I came to bring

The pain my brain too quick

You see

How I maneuver this game,

I ain't stupid

I recognize that life is a dream,

And I dream lucid

And break the chains and change minds,

One verse at a time

And claim 2-6,

And f**k it, if the shoe fits

Who's the king?

We all kings

(We all kings ni**a)

Kings of ourselves first and foremost

(True)

While the people debate

Who's the king of this rap game

 

Here comes lil' ol' Jermaine

With every ounce of strength in his veins

 

To snatch the crown

From whoever y'all think has it

 

But rather than place it

On his head as soon as he grabs it

Poof, boom, paow,

It's like magic

 

With a flash and a BANG

The crown disintegrates

And falls to the Earth

From which it came

 

It's done

 

Ain't gonna be no more kings

 

Be wary of any man that claims

Because deep down he clings

Onto the need for power

 

But in reality he's a coward

 

Ultimately he's scared to die

 

And sometimes so am I

 

But when I'm in tune with the most high

I realize

 

The fear lies in my lack of awareness

Of the other side

 

Today I know that we are the same

Are the same, you and I

 

Different kind of skin,

 

Different set of eyes

 

Two different minds,

But only one God

(It's only one God ni**a)

 

It's for all the kings

 

Cause I know deep down every poet

Just wanna be loved
