lyrics

247 verse 1

Life is hard
I can see a lot of blocks in the way
From the road you choose to walk
To the place you home to stay
We all grow in way
Molding the path known as self
Reflection of our surrounding
With the parent no parent help
Being black is hard enough
Just trying to survive
A ready to die attitude is part of the lie
Angry and feisty
Nothing nice to come across
Is a lost way to view any skin you section off
We are individual
With analytical mainframe
To overcome the nothing and make it a better life gain
The price pain
Even with the same color in the veins
They utter it's a shame
While they clutter up the name
Made to be vicious
Pimps, killers and dealers
Sports, rap or stealers
No honor in the demeanor
Played to be meaner
Told how to talk, look and act
One foot in the cycle
With no chance of turning back

Hook
It’s been a long, day
Nothing to really say
Want to be a better person but they claim that i’m a pain
