From the second Jazzmatazz album "The New Reality" (1995) ... Even though all Guru's Jazzmatazz albums are great, this one is by far the best one, imo.
Big thanks to JULIENS73 for translating Lucien's verse.

- lyrics:

[Guru]
Mmm is this really the end or is it a new beginning?
A new reality..

Chorus: Guru + Baybe (repeat 2X)

So many misconceptions (don't be misled)
So many evil deceptions (oh I am)
I've come to give direction
For I am the lifesaver (the life)

[Guru]
Scooby doo wah scooby doo wee
Like a jazz player I improvise wisely
Free with the style, I flow like the Nile
but remember, don't mistake the smile
Deep rooted is my rhymin
Like ancient African griots, precise is my timing
But let me get to the essence of what I'm sayin here
Too many blood red streets with bodies layin there
The systematic fanatics are at it again
Tryin to kill me and all of us my friend
But don't bend to the mental strain
Against all odds, we must strive for essential gains
Be true to the life the Lord gave ya
And that's a message from the lifesaver
The lifesaver..

Chorus

[Baybe]
Oh I am, the life (I.. am the lifesaver)
I am, the life.. yeah

[Guru]
It takes a more intelligent man to squash a fight
than to set one off, knowledge I'll let some off
Cause nowadays, everybody's a killer
And as for me, no other MC is iller
but still a thorn scrapes my heart
when I see another life that's been torn apart
over nonsense, no law, no order, it's evidence
that the money only takes precedence
Cause everybody wants power
While the innocent are born or die, during every hour
I scowl as I look upon evil
but I must have the strength, to spark awareness in my people
And we will learn to respect our neighbors
Another message from the lifesaver
The lifesaver..

Chorus

[Guru]
People talk about the Armaggedeon
And nowadays everyone you know is packin lead son
Each day's another test
Aiyyo I better do my best, cause a lot's ridin on my chest
So when I lead you to the water, you best know
how to swim across, so you can reach the border
It's international, the message and the flavor
So here's some more important words from the lifesaver
The lifesaver.. (I am the life)
The lifesaver..

[Lucien]
"Garcon faché grandissant dans la violence et la pisse.
Le mot "peace" c'est pour ceux qui périssent chaque jour aux alentours dans le monde et ses tours, en prison , ou retour en arrière dans les fours.
Et les condés font leur rondes, les ville grondent, la terre chauffe, les sommets de montagne fondent.
Prends dans sa face, black, ça casse!
Tel est mon uniforme dans une guerre entre races.
On me regarde, on me met en garde-à-vue.
Certains cafardent, d'autres bavardent et tuent.
Dédicaces à tous quartiers, toutes cités.
Oh, pas de chance pour ceux qui sont tombés, mais pas pour la France, pays trop "bidon".
Vivement armageddon.
J'ai raison.
Prions Jéhovah pour mon pardon, car si un flic me juge, je le droite !
Droit dans son oeil, et le fond de son cerveau je gratte.
... (goes off to fade)"

Translation:

"Angry boy growing up in violence and pee.
The word "peace" of a country is for those who die every day in the vicinity around the world and its project (low-income housing) towers, in jail, or back (in time?) in the ovens.
And the cops are doing their rounds, the cities rumble, the earth heats up, the tops of mountains are melting.
Take in his face, black, it breaks!
Such is my uniform in a war between races!
They look at me, they put me in custody !
Some sneak, chat and kill others!
Dedicated to all neighborhoods, all cities!
Oh, bad luck for those who fell (=died), but not for France, too " of a countrybogus" of a country!
May armageddon!
I'm right.
Let's pray Jehovah for my pardon, because if a cop judges me, I hit him with my right fist!
Straight in his eye, and the bottom of his brain I scratch!
... (goes off to fade)"

[Guru]
So many misconceptions
So many evil deceptions
I've come to give direction
For I, am the lifesaver
