Ooh you feel that as I take you to them dirt roads deep in your southern roots When nobody said life was going to be easy And we travel to this emotional roller coaster called life And we have our ups and downs Just keep in mind When you hit rock bottom There ain't no where to go but up baby Just all you about how you deal wit it you feel me... listen here [Chorus] When life seems hopeless It make a n**** lose focus Empty beer bottles and roaches, helps to get it off my chest cause I'm so stressed and all I here is "f*** the world" [Repeat: x2] Man ever since life been a gamble My life been in shamble Double edge sword burnin' both sides of the candle "But Cris, you can't handle the truth" Don't want to face reailty So lord accept my apology Please like when police say freeze And I ain't do s*** But I'm down on my knees Its a crooked system but gin straight take the pain away I charge the game And put my problems on layaway A black man but I feel so blue So I smoke green and purple til my dreams come true Then my eyes turn red Sky turns grey Children slangin' white in the hood We call it yeah drink old gold Down my yellow brick road Then rewrite my script til my story's untold See I got a little money and my life sped up now I'm fallin' and I can't get up [Chorus: x2] I had to dream about a dope fiend And its strange 'cause he can barely write or read But seems to get folks about anything curious about him I wanted to talk to him but he was to busy fo that But I was more then welcome to walk with him As we walked He talked and I just listen He said there's a big difference between crackas and n****s See he said white folks look out fo the white folks but uh black folks blang wit tha black folks When they ain't enough black roakz When you ooh to make a long story short We need pay more attention and do things that are more completes and he told me You know I wouldn't say something that wouldn't work and I wouldn't damn sure waste my time telling something that would hurt you But you would fall for anything If you don't stand for something But that's for certain but n****s don't be listen and that s*** be hurting No all of us but some of us And if we don't hurry up They going to bury each and every one of us [Chorus: x2] Sometimes I can't deal wit my daily issues Just being sober lifes a b**** and I can't control her I wish I could and sometimes to cry on We need a shoulder The government stand us up To run us over And in the hood they don't seem to understand Goddamn! What's really got me wondering Is if its a part of a bigger plan man I smell some thing fishy goin on and its way beyond blowin' away the smoke from these swishers Goin' on it ain't much I can do about it but preach the word of telling my people to spend ya money Wisely don't be obscured By some things that depreciated like what like a home to open ya eyes to What's the f***s that's goings on 'Cause the constantly getting rid of us one by one Whether Its drugs or diseases or gun by Gun I ain't no saint either I feel that I'm even doing wrong by usin this chorus to get through this song [Chorus: x2] You know y'all going to mess around and complain about slavery that was over 40, 50 years ago black folks need to move on Y'all keep playin wit a crackerthey going to have yo a** tied up Wired up to them back roads south Florida, Georgia And they made hem laws say they can't do anything for you Can a church get a amen and god for them thugs too Amen
