[Verse 1] My family dream with me Under city lights Pump the light The screamers rights Just work it out but ya'll ain't hearin' it Words Travel deep in your spirit alone I cruise the block And use the box To serenade the moonlight with the speakers Niggaz lean back, deep in your seats and feel me Cliques and crews n' hoods and gangs who love it I'm, lovin' you dearly Keep hustlin' Jugglin' Pressure, life, and success Those who made it Debate it Until another's deaf We buried ourselves under the jail Without shovels, and dirt under our nails Bubbles with crime and trouble tales And street violence turned extreme (Calling out names) To rippin' joints on stage To cuttin' fame time short To life supportin' nothin' But just realize what ya'll done We've given 'em reasons to scream on us And it's just begun What happened to us in the bigger picture? Don't you understand when one of us falls? Step and we're all fallin' with ya c'mon yeah [Hook] If you believe Then I'll sing And you'll believe that (All I need is the love of my crew) (Yeah Right) That maybe you will do what you're supposed to do Don't even say That you're better than this Repeat 1X [Verse 2] I represent for a nation, thought we was in it together But I guess it gets strange when money rains in sunny weather Tougher than leather We're weaker than glass And shattered on the side of the road Trying to get a ride, but pass each other fast Closed Aves' Throw hash Ice and Whips Have blinded us Never mind How the mind just trips for glitch Shit niggaz Rich niggaz got us in tow If it's not enough they gotta put us all on a show Ya'll lost me Somewhere between wakin' and coffee That shit changed so quick I didn't blink and it cost me F*ck it, it costs us Do you even know where we at? F*ck you, and that we're here You can't even open the map Rap's dead Rap sucks But thanks to ya'll for Killin' it Grillin' it down And spillin its guts And fillin' it Back up with trash ..Wait up I mean cash Bangin (?) too synonymous With media politics (You know they love it) [Hook] If you believe Then I'll sing And you'll believe that (All I need is the love of my crew) (Yeah Right) That maybe you will do what you're supposed to do Don't even say That you're better than this Repeat 1X [Verse 3] What ya'll fightin' for? For the light of the raw battle Naw! Can't be the latter 'cause music just doesn't matter right? Maybe I'm pinchin' emotions To broken ears And livin in years When shit was spoken clearly Without all the bullshit Pullin' Clips Replacin' games with court gestures Bought pressers Proclaimed the best is paid And just forsake the rest Who made it possible to be spittin' If you got the same type of us women That's grinnin' Then the joint will keep spinnin' I swear It's like swimmin' with sharks In public pools in shallow water And some of these artists are fuckin' your youngest daughter Feel me? ain't no real fam Niggaz is playin you Trust me I wouldn't let my brother have his way with you I'm only stating facts Shit is plain as flood lights We drop 10 I want to f*ck you, maybe 2, 1 mics I'm just tryna keep it done right One to Unity I want our crew to be Just like it used to be [Hook] If you believe Then I'll sing And you'll believe that (All I need is the love of my crew) (Yeah Right) That maybe you will do what you're supposed to do Don't even say That you're better than this Repeat 1X
