This is ghetto reality in Texas

You see I am what I am, and it is what it is 
You'd feel how I feel, if you been where I been 
Live what I live, see what I see 
So get out my ear, and just let me be 

I'm a survivor of the struggle, I lived life hard 
Single mama with half a job, I was raised by God 
No dad, the only role model I had 
Was a ounce of that white powder, in a Ziplock bag 
I don't brag about the struggles, I endured as a child 
You don't know the pain I went through, to create this smile 
I got one life to live, know I'm tal'n bout 
So I enjoy it, cause I earned everything that I got 
They hate what I got, I hear em with they cape talk 
They thinking that my life, was a cake walk 
I'm a man of principles, I live by my word 
So it's obscured, when I hear sour words 
They gon get what they deserve, but I don't wish no harm 
What goes around comes around, so partna you been warned 
In the midst of all the trouble, I still remain calm 
Cause sunny days, will follow the storm man, just let me be 

You see I am what I am, and it is what it is 
You'd feel how I feel, if you been where I been 
Live what I live, see what I see 
So get out my ear, and just let me be 

You see I am what I am, and it is what it is 
You'd feel how I feel, if you been where I been 
Live what I live, see what I see 
So get out my ear, and just let me be 

Somebody questioned, if I got the right to recite what I spit 
'Cause I've never been indicted, or divided a brick 
But my life is grit, all types of crisis and shit 
I decided to risk it all, to try to slide in the mix 
And get what I can get, see I'm fighting negative bars 
I knew it wouldn't be easy, but no one said it be hard 
As it is, I mean the evil in the heart of these men 
Got me wondering, if I'll ever see the reward 
At the end of the road, it's kind of hard to remember your goals 
When you grow where, not many live to get old 
I played the cards that I was given, and never listen to those 
Who think different
