SURVIVAL

yo growing up ain’t easy
living on these city streets
trying to eat off concretre
where everyday there’s murder
dope dealers want to serve ya
a little peice of insanity
gangs want to be your family
police come around for the fun of it
snatching up those caught in the bullshit
there’s no life when the hollow points hit
no use claiming your legit
most die quick trying to be slick
DOA on a arrival
i’m talking about survival

Tony’s little sister’s been raped
found on the corner with chalk, and yellow tape
now he’s screaming
police car sirens blaring
Now Tony’s not the only one caring
The tv stations are playing the story
calling it a part of neighborhooods waring
to me it’s all boring
because tomorrow nobody will give damn
life goes on, and Tony will have to become a man
soon the rumors start to fly
the fellas say somebody has to die
but who because nobody knows who
the killer really is
Tony only knows who little sister it is
in all the madness grabs his bible
i’m talking about survival
survival

Larry just lost everything he owned
to this crackhead he boned
never knew her name
just fell victim to same street game
that has him now homeless
the shelters are full
his family finally tired of his bull
it cold, and he’s freezeing
now in god he starts believing
skinny, and addicted
the rock keeps calling
poverty, and insanity has him falling
into the hell he created
if only he knew this title
it’s called survival
of the fittest
of the richest
of the poor
knocking on your door
it’s called survival
