    [Akon]
    How many days we gonna live our life struggling on the streets
    How many days we gotta live our life searching for a way to eat
    You gotta stay down stay down just to see a brighter day
    Stay down stay down just to live a better way
    Stay down stay down just to live a brighter day
    Stay down stay down just to live a better way

    [Flashy Verse 1]
    How many blacks gotta die by the hands of another
    Don't you understand that man's the same color so that man is your brother
    That's what happens when that man is from the gutter
    And that man is a hustler trying to survive, moving grams of that butter
    See, his momma was a dope fiend, poppa was a rolling stone
    He never knew what family was he grew up in a broken home
    Ever since twelve years old he was known as grown
    'cause ever since twelve years old he was on his own
    And even though it seemed like school was the best
    plan
    His only choice was distributing the rock like
    Def-jam
    While everybody else was getting diplomas
    He graduated from the middle of the strip to the
    corner
    But I don't knock him cause he tryin to bubble
    There's no food on the table, the rents past due and that's why he hustles
    And I ain't sayin that it`s right to be dealin`
    All I'm sayin is I feel him I guess
    I just see eye 2 eye wit his struggle you know

    [Flashy Verse 2]
    Now baby girl's got a promising future
    But her mom`s passed away while she was younger and her father's a loser
    He'd always abused her but what else you expect from a coward
    He wasn't even proud when she got accepted to Howard
    And even though she loves college everyday it would stress her
    But it wasn't cause of exams or she hate her
    professor
    It was her financial situation here she couldn't pay a semester
    And the only means of making it better was totally
    reversing the role
    Lap dancing working that pole even though deep down it`s hurting her soul
    And even if it meant taking off her clothes
    She was down for what ever to help her accomplish her personal goals
    And I ain't trippin off a-how shortie livin
    She gotta pay her tuiton put food in the kitchen and that's why she strippin
    And I ain't sayin I agree with her job but shit times is hard
    I guess I just see eye to eye with her vision you
    know

    [Flashy Verse 3]
    Now see the moral of the story is this
    If you ain't tryin to help stop our troubles then
    don't knock our hustle
    `Cause really at the end of the day it`s not ya'll
    struggle
    But you always got something to say
    Well hear this fuck you
    Yeah that's right I'm talking to you come try to sleep in our beds
    Eat off our plates, take a walk in our shoes
    Look at the world from our view try to live by our
    rules
    Drink the same water we do, put your kids in our
    schools
    I guarantee you won't maintain your health you'll
    probably try to end it all
    And hang yourself or bang yourself
    You couldn't possibly understand all pain we felt
    And without folding your hands play the games we
    dealt
    I'm being real I ain't tryin to be evil
    Look how we live, look how ya'll live
    C'mon be serious how is we equal
    Matter fact I feel I'm wasting my time
    I'm finished writing this rhyme
    Ya'll never gonna see eye to eye with my people you know

    Stay down stay down just to live a better way (Repeat 2X)
