"Our Way"

-KBF

Rappers grind powder cause thats what it takes to survive

And I can't blame em a choice between they lives or dies

For those that buy, seizures are a norm part of a high

That blocks out the part of the lies that burns em inside

And I wonder why they dont spend their dollars more wise

They comprimise, eatin food from the dump is worth the high

And the desperate sighs and nighttime cries

Pondering about a life that's not theirs to decide

Whether they fight and abandon their husbands or wives

And it starts cause rappers gotta survive

On the street, ya come strong or face defeat

Masquerading as something you ain't to make it thru the week

These lil girls actin older, moaning from under the sheets

Their innocence being leeched, from what men ask they beseech

Now they in too deep, asking help from the Lord but they outta reach

Gettin a real job is a big leap from under the heap

Now they weep, but what they say, if ya laugh we with you

But if you cry you alone like your used to, a who?

Girls favorite color is blue cause its something they know about

Know theyre due, but the baby surviving is a doubt

And they wouldn't want the child to lead it's life

Growin up like it's mommy learnin less about math and more about knives

Listen to the piano keys, what ya baby could be

A baby piano ge-nius gettin away from the street way like lee

This is the way it is

How our past been lived

Chasin fugatives

The ray of light gives

In to the lure of contraceptives

And we're not receptive

To the cry of help we intercepted

A bout of crime we let give

Cause we have other in-i-tiatives

Listen, polititians whose power we voted to give

Look at your country, u banter bout how other countries live?

Of course, we're the exceptions, some of us livin exception-al

Some of us addiction of ty-lenol takin it til we're full

Takin it to the bull, cause we fed up wit the way our country is

What's mine and what's his, when we all heard about Dr. King ris-

En for peace and unity in the nation he living in, we livin in

Pay your divindends, a country divied is a sin, the one we livin' in

Through our differences, through childhood pred-ju-dice

Strolling through life, because of your race they'd hiss

Or if ya dad used your money on drugs as often as he pissed

You walk through school wit no books because of this

My dad died when a vein in his head burst ruining the bliss

I thought there was, but he had to go first, he insist-ed

And it's hard knowin someone close is dead

And it's harder knowin the gov wasn't read-

Y even though they had all the technology to pinpoint

Exactly where you are, but they can't get right to the point

React to a natural diaster, it's a skill they gotta master

Wit them it's speeches and vacations, mostly the latter

And I got so much to say

But I know it's just another day livin' our way

"And I wonder why they dont spend their dollars more wise" - that was just sucha dope line.

"

"What's mine and what's his, when we all heard about Dr. King ris-

En for peace and unity in the nation he living in, we livin in

Pay your divindends, a country divied is a sin, the one we livin' in" - that was top notch flow, and I would love hear these lines time and time again. I'd probably be reciting it.

The song is amazing. You really put the female's voice out and for people to listen. The lyrics were great.
