Sometimes its hard, to wake up in the morning
Mind full of demons.
I dont wanna hear em anymore.
Got me heart broken, fine.
So many babies screaming because their seeing
Before they see a human being.
So they start smoking weed
Will never get our day.
Until we learn to pray,
Keep our families in shape.
Cause they all broken
Why? do ghetto birds die?
Before we learn to fly?
Somebody elses child
caught in gun smoke
& We, can all make a change
So i'm told, but i havent seen a change unfold
I keep open pleas
If you prefer to breathe
Communties in need
Of people that will lead
Keep your eyes open
I, can only say i'll try
Until the day i die
I promise to be wise
With my heart open
Greed, brings only misery; a way to tragedy
So i stay sucka free.
Only a few chosen, rise.
My ghetto queens, rise, dont be afraid to, try
To many of us die, for the daughters,open.
wise my brothers, be wise.
Stay focus on the prize
though every dies.
If we can only learn to take, our anger and our hate
Conrtol our mental state
Settle down and set it straight.
Maybe we can learn to take
A second to pump the brakes
Before we set it, regret it later, and let is
Because by then its just to late
Theres so much we can take
And theres only so much someone can swallow and
Up to the point that he just breaks
Snaps, and thats all it takes
You'd think that we was learning from other rappers
But we aint.
Its great to go against.
With every artist comes an image he portrays
And a picture that he paints.
But in amidst of all this anger and these skanks
Never did you hear me say i am a gangster, and i aint.
Hear no complaints.
But i know that i will always continue to grow
As long as i lead and never follow no ones elses
there will never be another me
And that i can guarantee
Thats why the fuck i remain sucker free, till this day
The game will never be the same
No matter how much fame or success they obtain
There will never be another me
And no matter what they do
There will never be another you
You can search but you will never find
You can try to rewind time
But in your hearts and your minds
We will never die, we are forever alive.
And we can continue growing
(TUPAC) ONE DAY AT A TIME.
Dont get caught up in publicity and caught in the hype
Rappers are regular people minus money and lights
Searching for fortune and fame and super stardom
All the jewelry, all the cars.
Who's crews the hardest?
Now the hiphop police, them fellas is watchin
And the kids think beef is the only option
Outlaws born filthy, guilty as charged
My memories reason to die, Makaveli lives on
They think the industy is fun, aint no pity with guns
And when your money is up thats when you enemies come
So if he died and came back would he try to save rap
We needin a change this drama remains
I spent my whole life fighting myself
That, i cant win, so I'm inviting some help
I take rights from the left
I'm still just like a kid looking for stripes on my
And that there is a fight in itself
So i just pray and hope god, take a light to myself
No matter how much i try, stay alive,
I'ma die a man and still standin in the love of my
Frivolous beef, we past that
I'm trying to keep someone from come,coming in
And collect on my ass, cap.
Rappers in the game aint change
And i finally realized that we not in the same game
The hating, the ??? So i guess i'll deal with it
Them 4,5 a pop killas, yes, i'm still with it
The streets is military you gotta be a solider,
Gotta stay lery and keep your eyes on the road
they do what they gotta do to shackle and hold
So we got to do what we got to do to keep it growing
One day at a time, keep the faith in your mind,
and we continue growing
ONE DAY AT A TIME
