NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT I WAS ALWAYS TAKEN AWAY
FROM MY FATHER, OR HE WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM ME.
THAT'S PROBABLY WHY WE SO CLOSE NOW, YOU KNOW?

HOOK:
WE BEEN STARVING SO LONG IN THESE CRAZY GHETTO STREETS
AND THEY SAY WE SO WRONG BY THE WAY WE TRY TO EAT
HOW LONG WILL I STRUGGLE, I GOT TO GRIND JUST TO EAT NOW
I GOT TO EAT JUST TO LIVE NOW. S0 I GOT TO LIVE MY LIFE THIS WAY

VEBSE 1:
I STRETCHED BEYOND, FOUR YEARS FROM A NEW BORN,
ON THE CHARTER BUS FILLED WITH STRANGE HUMANS,
BESIDES MY MOTHER NOBODY SEEMS ANXIOUS,
THOUGH WE ON OUR WAY TO VISIT A COLLEGE CAMPUS,
WE ROLL UP, FRESHEN UP AT A FOOD CONCESSION,
CAN'T TALK TO STRANGERS, I WANT TO ASK THEM QUESTIONS,
SAW A WOMAN CRYING, BOY FACE TO FIST,
I DON'T WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE IF IT CAUSES THIS,
BACK ON THE BUS, STILL ANALYSING VIBES,
TURNED TO MY MOMS AND ASKED HER WHY YOU CRYING?
SHE SAID BECAUSE I'M HAPPY BUT I COULD TELL SHE'S LYING,
AND SWCE LYWG WAS A CURSE I SENSED STORYTELLJNG,

HER EYES FOCUSED ON THE OBJECT LONGING UP THE TABLE,
THAT'S WHEN SHE REACHED
INTO HER BAG BECAUSE THE PHONE WAS RINGING,
SHE SAID I ACCEPT, I'M STILL PUZZLE PIECING,
I KNEW MY POPS WAS ON THE OTHER LINE, LONELY SINGING

HOOK:REPEAT

VERSE 2:
SOON AFTER WE ROLL UP TO THESE GATES, ALL WIRED UP,
MEN STANDING IN THE ENTRANCE ARMED UP,
WITH A CLOSE EYE ON US WE ENTER THE BUILDING,
GOT CHECKED BY THE WOMEN WHO WAS STARING,
MY MOTHER, PULLED OUT A CARD
WITH A PICTURE OF HER FACE ON IT,
TWO PAPERS WITH OUR NAMES ON IT, THEY IDENTIFY HER,
THEY LOOKING AT ME, ME MY CONFUSION OF THE JOURNEY,
THROUGH THESE WALLS WE GO,
BEFORE THE NEXT OPENS THE PAST ONE MUST CLOSE,
AS THEY CHECK FOR PROPER CLOTHES,
MY MAMA SO PREPARED FOR THIS MANY BATTLE HEADS SHOWED,
FINALLY WE REACH OUR FINAL DESTNATION MY PAPA PLACED IN,
A SEAT FACING ME, NO WOMEN IN HIS CLASS,
JUST MEN WHO NEVER LAUGH
AND WHEN THEY SEE THEIR FAMILIES THEY SING

HOOK:REPEAT

VERSE 3:
SO I BEGIN MY INVESTIGATION,
MY ELBOW UP ON THE ROUND TABLE, MY PALM ITCHING,
I'M LOOKING AT HIM,
ASK QUESTIONS LIKE HOW YOU BEEN? WHEN YOU GRADUATING?
TIME WAS UP, GOT PULLED AWAY,
KICKING AND SCREAMING (I DON'T WANNA LEAVE),
TEARS CAME TO HIS EYES,
BUT NEVER FELL IN FRONT OF ME,
NOT OLD ENOUGH TO REALIZE THEY MUST HAVE FELL
ABUNDANTLY,
BEING LOCKED AWAY IN PRISON AWAY FROM YOUR FAMILY,
TRYNG TO FIND WAYS FOR US TO EAT, I SING

HOOK:REPEAT
