Lyrics:

[Intro – Makaveli]

Makaveli in this… Killuminati, all through your body
(They say I’m dead but…)
The blow’s like a twelve gauge shotty
Uhh, feel me!
And God said he should send his one begotten son
to lead the wild into the ways of the man
Follow me; eat my flesh, flesh and my flesh

[Chorus – Makaveli]

Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la
Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la

[Verse 1 – Makaveli]

I ain’t a killer but don’t push me
Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to gettin’ pussy
Picture paragraphs unloaded, wise words bein quoted
Peeped the weakness in the rap game and sewed it
Bow down, pray to God hoping that he’s listenin’
Seein niggaz comin’ for me, to my diamonds, when they glistenin’
Now pay attention, rest in peace father
I’m a ghost in these killing fields
Hail Mary catch me if I go, let’s go deep inside
the solitary mind of a madman who screams in the dark
Evil lurks, enemies, see me flee
Activate my hate, let it break, to the flame
Set trip, empty out my clip, never stop to aim
Some say the game is all corrupted, fucked in this shit
Stuck, niggaz is lucky if we bust out this shit, plus
mama told me never stop until I bust a nut
Fuck the world if they can’t adjust
It’s just as well, Hail Mary

[Chorus – Makaveli]

Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la
Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la

[Verse 2 – Makaveli]

Penetentiaries is packed with promise makers
Never realize the precious time the bitch nigga’z is wastin’
Instutionalized I lived my life a product made to crumble
But too hardened for a smile, we’re too crazy to be humble, we ballin’
Catch me father please, cause I’m fallin’, in the liquor store
That’s the Hennessey I hear ya callin’, can I get some more?
Hail ’til I reach Hell, I ain’t scared
Mama checkin’ in my bedroom; I ain’t there
I got a head with no screws in it, what can I do
One life to live but I got nuttin’ to lose, just me and you
on a one way trip to prison, sellin’ drugs
We all wrapped up in this livin’, life as Thugs
To my homeboys in Quentin Max, doing they bid
Raise hell to this real shit, and feel this
When they turn out the lights, I’ll be down in the dark
Thuggin eternal through my heart, now Hail Mary nigga

[Chorus – Makaveli]

Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la
Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la

[Verse 3 – Kastro]

They got a A.P.B, out on my Thug family
Since the Outlawz run these streets, like these skanless freaks
Our enemies die now, walk around half dead
Head down, K blasted off Hennessey and Thai
Chronic mixed in, now I’m twisted, blistered and high
Visions of me, Thug livin’ gettin’ me by
Forever live, and I multiply survived by Thugs
When I die they won’t cry unless they comin’ with slugs

[Verse 4 – Young Noble]

Peep the whole scene and whatever’s going on around me
Brain kinda cloudy, smoked out feeling rowdy
Ready to wet the party up, and whoever in that motherfucker
Nasty new street, slugger my heat seeks suckers
on the regular mashin’ in a stolen black Ac Integ-ra
Cock back, sixty seconds ’til the draw that’s when I’m dead in ya
Feet first, you got a nice gat but my heat’s worse
From a Thug to preaching church, I gave you love now you eating dirt
Needin’ work, and I ain’t the nigga to put you on
Cause word is bond when I was broke I had to hustle ’til dawn
That’s when the sun came up, there’s only one way up
hold ya head and stay up, to all my niggaz get ya pay and weight up

[Verse 5 – Kastro and Kadafi]

If it’s on then it’s on, we break beat-breaks
Outlawz on a paper chase, can you relate
to this shit I don’t got, be the shit I gotta take
Dealin’ with fate, hoping God don’t close the gate
If it’s on then it’s on, we break beat-breaks
Outlawz on a paper chase, can you relate
to this shit I don’t got, be the shit I gotta take
Dealin with fate, hoping God don’t close the gate

[Chorus – Makaveli *repeats in the background]

Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la

[Prince Ital]

We’ve been traveling on this wayward road
Long time til I be take a ‘eavy load
But we ride, ride it like a bullet
Hail Mary, Hail Mary (Hail Mary)
We won’t worry everyting well carry
Free like the bird in the tree
We won’t worry everyting well carry
Yes we free like the bird in the tree
We runnin from the penetentiary
This is the time for we liberty
Hail Mary, Hail Mary

[Chorus – Makaveli]

Come with me, Hail Mary, nigga
Run quick see, what do we have here
Now, do you wanna ride or die
La dadada, la la la la
