The Past And The Present

Life is hard living in a council estate
Relyng on the benefits to put food on the plate
Coz dad passed away when i turned 8
Tried to save him but it was a bit too late

And now life aint all that great
Higher classes working 9-5
While ppl like us grinding 9-late
I'm just trying provide for my family to keep them all safe

Coz this messed up world's full of so much hate
Theres girls in their teens that are getting raped
I Don't want my kids to live my life, so i gotta change my ways
So This is for the people that can all relate

I Gotta fix up the devil might lead Me astray
Gotta bow down pray 5 (Namaaz) everyday
Just so I can pave my way..

Into paradice, in the afterlife
Into gods hand coz thats were my future lies
In life we all fall and we rise
But now i have to realize that its coming to our time

I need to stay in the right path I dont fall outta line
As the devils is always lurking on the other side
This life is test I need to stop thinking its a ride
So what path I choose only I can decide....
