Ghetto eyeing, ghetto's dying, ghetto's crying
Unemployment, no hiring, ghetto firing
But we got the heart of a lion
The music to our ears is the sound of a siren
Most don't stand a chance
Get stuck, can advance
Criminal record or in a ambulance
Gang bangers considered soldiers
Killing each other on the streets
Got they mother in for enclosure
The Lord knows ya, Lord chose ya, Lord holds ya
Is explosion, can't keep my composure
I love Obama, he ain't the savior
No unity in my community, we don't love thy neighbor
Ghetto folks, change your behavior
Be braver, pick the fruits of our labor
And stop calling for these tricks
When white America get a cold, black people get sick
Yo, you want the milk, go eat the honey
Why? Cause my message can beat your money
You unprepared, unaware
You either running free or you running scared
So how you running?
Are you running, dawg?
Or is it just your mouth you running?
I'm hunger-driven, unforgiven
Everybody high like the cost of livin'
I got bitch knowledge, ho wisdom
You a math major, old division
Altered vision, I take aim, all precision
I get mine, step back
It always gets dark before it gets black
Yo, so who's keeping time?
From champagne or cheap wine
You speaking for money? I'm speaking my mind
