Well, i'm doing this from that place
Where the young bodies stack to the bluest of blue skies
A child grown quick kicking it with an ice-pick
Age of 8 babyface straight-up scared to die

Seen 1 little, 2 little, 3 little homicides
Kids don't rank so they shank in front of baby eyes
Bullet-scarred, prison-barred
The one time's got my face to the ground, they want me down

Downset at the bottom! on the come up to say some
Down! downset at the bottom! coming up from the slum!
Down! downset at the bottom! on the come up to say some
Down! down! down! down!

Bronze complexion, converse and khakis
Enough for the fuss of a crash to straight jack me
Brotha, brotha, brotha, how you make 'em get down?
Systematic static can't stifle the set's sound

Jack for the mic and i'll still get it going on
Making my statement with a fatcap and krylon
Pee-ping my voice from the l.a. underground
The plan from the man is to demand they keep me down

Downset at the bottom! on the come up to say some
Down! downset at the bottom! coming up from the slum!
Down! downset at the bottom! on the come up to say some
Down! down! down! down they got me, down!

Got ya, got ya, yeah, you know, i straight ya
Reveal to heal in our sectarian obstacles
Wipe the dirt off the eyes of the hate child
Damn with the program imposed since the juvenile

Shit is so thick that you don't want to deal with it
Set's got heart to consist like an activist
Ain't going to live in comfort while shit gets words
I got the voice of the voiceless and life comes first

So what you're gonna do? what you're gonna do?
What you're gonna do when the shit comes down on you?
The set's gonna be down, yeah, you know like we've always been
The ghetto survivors got no soldier extinction

The man ain't down with multi-ethic ethics
Division is wicked and downset ain't with it
My word is my fire for life and love is the sound
You gotta kill me to silence me, fool, you can't keep me down

Downset at the bottom! on the come up to say some
Down! downset at the bottom! freedom in a cage
Down! downset at the bottom! on the come up to say some
Down! down! down! down!
