Believe me, when I say
Before light, there was dark

Where you going? Where you going?
Where you going? Where you going? Where you going?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?

Places that I've have been, things that I have seen
What you call a nightmare? Or what I have is dreams?
Bad as that may seem, I know is only going to get worse
Love, a slug, which one am I gonna get first?
My journey's been a rough one, I'm not sure when they begin
But the way it's looking, I kind of know when it's gonna end
Hold me down baby, it's gonna be a rough ride
Niggas give us plenty of room, 'cause I guess enough died
Let me travel, 'cause my intentions are to travel in peace
An' fuck around, I lay you down, you hit the gravel and cease
I could be a beast, or I could be a gentleman
But if you ain't my dog, you gonna be like "Oh! It's him again"
Niggas will never win, this whole rap game is mine
Hot as you ever been, I was that in eighty-nine
Seek and you shall find, look within and you will know
Where you coming from, and where you gotta go, c'mon

If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?

I will spend mad time in one spot, plotting my next move
Trying to figure out, what is it that X do? What X do?
Some questions go unanswered, that's what I'm afraid of
Sometimes I can't show, but I know what I'm made of
They made love, or should I say they made lust
Bound, there didn't have to be love there, but they made us
I got quite a few sisters, I was the only boy
But being with my dog, was my only joy like a kid with a new toy
I forgot about the crowd escaped the misery
Didn't think about the crime lost all track of time was in another world
Everybody knew Earl, but there was another Earl
Like the side of the dark, riding the park but wouldn't wanna
Say the father when they jump me became a good runner
One by one they all went under, so I had the last laugh
They all thought it all was a joke, but I had the last laugh

If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?

I feel the ghost from within', coming back to haunt me
Stay love in my peoples, even though they don't want me
When I was bad, I was forgotten like I was dead and rotten
Should've been getting love, but instead was plotting
Shit wasn't right, and it was all blamed on me
Didn't know that, I was special till this rap shit came to be
Gave me a way out, showed me it was better to teach
Than bust niggas with the for for, leave them dead in the streets
Over beef that was worth less, than the cost of the slugs
That I bought to kill them
And that's because I thought, I ought to kill'em
Little did I know, death wasn't right
Didn't always show, every breath was a life
It was to be captured in suspended animation
To be felt by all, understood by every nation
What's the sense of hating, when I can show love?
What's the sense of faking, when I can show blood?

Now what's the moral to this story?

If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?
If I don't know where I'm coming from, where would I go?

Yonkers is where we grew, trials we got through
On top is where we staying, till the end as long as we pray
Dj's whiz, he plays same tracks as every day
On hot ninety-seven ya hear
Dmx all through the year
