Ya hear me
You tell the future
Or maybe your future blank
Parental advisory

You're thinking that you're grown now
You got you eyes set on the street
Somehow you think that you can stand on your feet
No job, no house, no car
Tell me how can you quire these things
I know just what you are thinking
The road you wanna take will leave you sinking
You wanna roll around with your crew
Tow drunks,
gang bangs,
steal cars
Doing all of these horrible things

Now tell me how were you mislead so easily
When you was raised better by your family
You try to be something that you aren't meant to be
Your mamas on her knees
Pray to god every night
Cause she knows that you are

Lost in the still of the night
Ain't no need to loose sight
She'll be holding the light
I'm lost in the still of the night
Ain't no need to loose sight
She'll be holding the light

See son it's never too late
The effort to correct is never to great
A family should stick together
One blood,
one love,
one heart 
Open arms welcome you at the gate
You're thinking that I'm crazy
I see through all them see your visions
I'm fried up with the premonitions
Black suits
Long faces
Sad words
Slow singing at the side of your grave

Now tell me how were you mislead so easily
When you was raised better by your family
You try to be something that you aren't meant to be
Your mammas on her knees
Pray to god every night
Cause she knows that you are

Lost in the still of the night
Ain't no need to loose sight
She'll be holding the light
I'm lost in the still of the night
Ain't no need to loose sight
She'll be holding the light

[Repeat: x2]
Whenever I'm low
All I need to know 
Is that you're there for me
You're down for me
My strength when I'm weak

[Repeat: x2]
Lost in the still of the night
Ain't no need to loose sight
She'll be holding the light
I'm lost in the still of the night
Ain't no need to loose sight
She'll be holding the light
