Gotta Make It Right


Fresh-Ta-Def

Recommended Posts

theres a few things in this world that i just dont understand

like why you walk in a white store an they fallow a black man

like he stole somethin in his hand or down his pants

why it take so long foh a ambulance

in new orleans, baggy hat durag and a pair of jeans

why are there so many homeless, an so many feen's

stuck on these streets, an these river revenes...

why do so many young die befor they get their teens

parents pass down genes, an you say you aint good enough

sayin dont talk about you aint about it, dawg you aint hood enough

well lemme tell you i've had enough, it effects us all, some aint that tough

lifes just to rough, but dont give up, cause baby you gotta keep ya head up

stay strong never let-up, baby even if you fed-up, juss get-up

lemme tell you i thought i been through it all, untill i seen-this

parents an teens-pissed, while the rest livin a dream Yes!

kanye on tv whilin out i respect dude

we gotta stand up, we just gotta get-through

respect-few, but feel the pain of so many,

i'm white but i feel it we one in all common aint-we?

we gotta stand up... an do whats right

people dieing overnight, an it just aint right..

I'm fightin a fight, that i've fought all my life..

aint ready to give up, i gotta make it right!

last few days I been askin many questions

like where I'mma end up, with lifes lessons

my agression, has led me to these confessions

fixing my broken heart, hold it togather let it mend

create a new start, and hold it down till the end

my heads shaken up thoughts are blured

when my raps mean something and my lyrics are words

thats when i know I've been heard, and they respect what I say

because with out all these problems i would have nothing to say (So I Say)

"we broke, we living, we dead, we sinners,

we smoke, we givin, we lead, we driven"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"i'm givin up my hands layed down on my shoulder

fly wit'me drive wit'me glide wit'me, come on over"

we gotta stand up... an do whats right

people dieing overnight, an it just aint right..

I'm fightin a fight, that i've fought all my life..

aint ready to give up, i gotta make it right!

Is this supposed to happen? from a closed perspective

from a nose dective, to a rose collective, plate

in a state of driven hate, that debates, all that i say

everynight, everyday, with out nothing to say when i pray

asking the pastor how to be saved,--An i did---

but i know my hole caved --An i sinned---Yes i did---

so when you ask yourself what this song means

i'm basically saying that life aint peaches an cream

when i dream, I'm a feen older then a teen

my record washed like tide keep you clean

when I open my eyes i see the roses that feild

gone through school knowin i yeild, when my shield

breaks and my heart hurts before i slip and i fall

because without my faith i would have nothing at all

we gotta stand up... an do whats right

people dieing overnight, an it just aint right..

I'm fightin a fight, that i've fought all my life..

aint ready to give up, i gotta make it right!
