Default A Better Tomorrow

Hi i need some help to translate some words from this song. Can anybody tell me what does mean?

Yo, in the housing, thousands seen early graves
Victims of wordly ways, memories stays engraved - wordly ways?
All my live brothers, is locked down with high numbers - ?high numbers?
The young hunger, blind to these lies, they die younger
In this New World the Order slaughter men, women, and children - the Order slaughter men...?
Ten feet gates surround the building keep us sealed in - keep us sealed in??
The projects, lifeless like a vietnam vet - what projects?
Constant war, sever threats of enemy conquest - sever threats of enemy conquest?
Crooked cops comb my building complex that's in the rumble - all line.

Thanks a lot if you can help me? I know that most of you understand this words without any problems but it's not my native language.

Now i'm trying translate next verses of this song if i have some problems I will write in this thread. PEACE!

Ways of the world...murder war etc.

All my live brothers, is locked down with high numbers - ?high numbers?

long sentences

The young hunger, blind to these lies, they die younger
In this New World the Order slaughter men, women, and children - the Order slaughter men...?

New World Order, Illuminati, freemasons etc.

Ten feet gates surround the building keep us sealed in - keep us sealed in??

kept in, restrained

The projects, lifeless like a vietnam vet - what projects?

in general, projects are housing complexes

Constant war, sever threats of enemy conquest - sever threats of enemy conquest?

end the threat of being overtaken

Crooked cops comb my building complex that's in the rumble - all line.

ok?

One part in "A Better Tomorrow" i never understood was when U-God says:

"Tree of life, more precious than Ruby's golden game."

Am i hearing that right? Is this about some old folk story or a movie or what?

^Interesting! Makes a lot of sense. If he would have said "More precious than Wu is golden game" it wouldn't make much sense.
