Nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Born into this life, I'm just tryna live
This is all I know so please can you forgive
There's nothing new under the sun
Nothing new under the sun

Grew up, just like most of his peers
Pops six feet deep, or in a cage doing years
Either way he not home, this boy suffers alone
Ain't no time for the weak so you gotta be strong
Different rules in the streets you never right or you're wrong
They ain't giving receipts, next to the pay phone
Speak in code with your tone, always down ten toes
Either go big or go home go home no lights on
Police violence bad education and malnutrition
Now tell me how you do you survive in these conditions
He's only sixteen on a grown man's mission
Plus momma dealing with that alchohol and drug addiction
He gotta make a decision, cuz niggas don't be livin'
Pass twenty-five step outside suicide do or die
Either you or I, hell of a choice to make
Staring death in his face, will he see another day

Nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Born into this life, I'm just tryna live
This is all I know so please can you forgive
There's nothing new under the sun
Nothing new under the sun

Making a little money now he got the blocks attention
Working in pharmaceuticals but no prescription
Girls that used to diss him, wanna kiss him and frisk him
They love his persistent and the way that his wrist look
A bad little shawty done caught his eye
Her momma, real strict cuz she know his type
But she intrigued by the life and really, she ain't lived
One thing to another and she's pregnant with his kid
They both sixteen talking babies, having babies
He talking about abortion or adoption on the daily
Plus you know the saying momma's baby daddy's maybe
Nine months later introducing baby Sadie
He looked in Sadie's eyes the world and the skies
Wanted to give it all but how does he provide
When that Similac cost twenty-three ninety-nine
No diploma minimum wage working a nine to five 

Nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Born into this life, I'm just tryna live
This is all I know so please can you forgive
There's nothing new under the sun
Nothing new under the sun

Seventeen now and he goes back to what he knows
Cuz Sadie is getting bigger, and Sadie needs clothes
Tryna be a better man than his father ever was
Cuz baby Sadie is the only person he's ever loved
Sadie's third birthday set up in the worst way
Blow, blow blow Lord have mercy
Sadie's daddy is dead, took one to the head
Couldn't blow out the candles, cake covered in red
Sadie's growing up like most of her peers
Pops six feet deep or in a cage doing years
Now she sixteen, on a grown woman's mission
And her momma dealing with alchohol and drug addiction
Getting attention because now she got a figure
Daddy wasn't around so now she fucking every nigga
Stuck in a cycle and it's hard to get free
Just another branch on the family tree

Nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Born into this life, I'm just tryna live
This is all I know so please can you forgive
There's nothing new under the sun
Nothing new under the sun
