Joey Bada$$ feat. Meechy Darko, Nyck Caution & Kirk Knight – RING THE ALARM Lyrics

(Verse 1 – Joey Bada$$)
I was born running with the baton
Now I’m known as the young intellectual don
Until I’m gone, where I’m from, the real don’t get along
With the fake, look me in the face, eyes of the storm
You don’t want none
No beef could never hurt me
I be on my Istanbul, they cold turkey
Firstly, it’s the double entendre monster
Taking haunted constant trips through your conscious
So be cautious
If it call for it, we leaving corpses
The causes of the coffin is the broken clauses
Skeletons in my closet, tomorrow’s never promised
Never mind it because we immortals regardless
Real G’s move in silence like my designer
Intertwined with the timeless, divine higher powered
I was dripping in the gold since a minor
Sitting on my throne overlooking my empire, uh, uh

(Chorus – Joey Bada$$)
Resurrection of real, you ni**as fake
Never second guessing my kill, so choose your fate
Cause I’m born running with the baton, a ticking time bomb
Ni**a, better ring the alarm, uh
Resurrection of real, you ni**as fake
Never second-guessing my kill, so choose your fate
Cause I’m born running with the baton, a ticking time bomb
Ni**a, better ring the alarm, uh

(Bridge – Joey Bada$$)
So keep it spinning, disc jocker
Flick the wrist, don’t risk that, partner
These ni**as impostors, we moving like the mobsters
One false move, have em sleeping with the lobsters, huh
So keep it spinning, disc jocker
Flick the wrist, don’t risk that, partner
These ni**as impostors, we moving like the mobsters
One false move, have ’em sleeping with the

(Verse 2 – Joey Bada$$)
It’s the ALL AMERIKKKAN BADA$$
Who you mad at? They ain’t have to ask that
Attack with the backlash, where’s my cash at?
Running all through NASDAQ, strap in my backpack
Going off the knack, dope boy in the Cadilac
Having flashbacks, wish a ni**a would clap back
Hit em with the blackjack, going through a stack fast
I snap with the raps, I make em bring the whole track back
Ni**as get smacked with the realer
When I drop, it’s all killer, no feelings
So you better not make a wrong move, ni**a
I’ll personally deliver each shot that won’t miss ya
And when it hit ya, it’s no warning
We bombarding, me and my squadron
If you want it, get your army
We dropping bombs calmly
This is no party
Any scraps left, we just feed em to the zombies

(Bridge – Meechy Darko)
Death before dishonor, I die for my brethren
This is a stick up, ocean’s 47
Ring the alarm, if a war yuh wan get in
Ring the alarm, if a war yuh wan get in
Death before dishonor, I die for my brethren
This is a stick up, ocean’s 47
Ring the alarm, if a war yuh wan get in
Ring the alarm, if a war yuh wan get in

(Verse 3 – Nyck Caution & Kirk Knight)
Ring the alarm, we ain’t keeping it calm
Need a reason to see the dog, break the leash and I’m on
Was hungry when I started, more ravenous as I evolve
Caution hazardous, inflicting damages, I can’t recall, uh
Rich in spirit when I broke some laws
I’m breaking even with my Pros against all the odds
Made my words cut deep, you gong need some gauze

And that alcohol we only going bar for bar
You know I blacked out, they bring the track out, I lay the smack down
Remember nights on the dirty mattress in the trap house?
I snap out em and flipped it around to where I’m at now
Living legend, finally back up on the map now
Resurrection of real, let’s bring it back
It ain’t even about the bars, they bumping whatever slaps now
All I hear is that ad-lib rapping on my SoundCloud
Sick of the trash out, this is the crackdown

(Outro – Meechy Darko)
Likkle bwoy dun backshot we’ll bury ya
Big metal ting ya get Captain Amerikkka
Beast coat regime, La Cosa Nostra
My team supreme, f**k around and smoke ya
Death before dishonor, I die for my brethren
This is a stick up, ocean’s 47
Ring the alarm, if a war yuh wan get in
Ring the alarm, if a war yuh wan get in
