Ghetto Dreams

It's suicude no truth but lies when you live in the hood
People get robbed everyday but I wish they would
I see people dropped on their face when they get out of place
I see bullet shells on the floor multiple holes through the door

When tell me I'm wrong my playground's infessed my hors
Got crack feans on the corner begging for more and more
Got naked addicts through the neighborhood high off that fresh dope
Look in little kid's eyes and see that there's no hope

Nope no ones gonna come for you tell me what you're going to do
Keep the pain in front of you carrying a gun or two
For a fools who fronts on you then you get to busting fools
What you gonna do when that gun seems to turn around on you

Gunshots in the air people really don't care
Before you go out at night you better say your prayers
Beware don't be afraid because the Devils going to get you
You try to hide inside he'll come and evict you

So you try to put on his shoes but they don't fix you
So you try to run from this dude but he's still gonna get you
Pistol whip you your families going to miss you
They warned you to stay out the streets cause it'll hit you
