Verse 1:

His voice broke in the middle of his life story
he had to smoke before he told me the rest
took a deep breath, spoke sadness and regret
for what he coulda been if the gang never took him in
he coulda played ball and become a big star
young child, fifteen, mama on trial
jail time came after, he mastered disaster
fast to grab the Mac from the stash and blast ya
known for toe-tagging with twin gold Magnums
so random, made men history like cro magnons
still standing in the street, after the beef
everybody deceased or locked in the beast
he said he had nothing to show for the hustling
trusted customers had cops rushing in
he remember mama said "Watch your fucking friends"
ten in the pen, he never going up again

Chorus (Repeat)
These are the lives we live, we dream of better things
instead of being the queen bitches and the ghetto kings
Circumstances make us, know yourself
'cause nobody else can save us (Nobody but you)

Verse 2:

My crew hit the town, my nigga spend a hundred thou
tricking on stripper chicks amidst a thick crowd
baby brown and round, going up and down
crawl over on her knees with a sexy growl
"Come get it now", lapdance, right there
hands everywhere, "Let's get outta here"
To the back of the club, private room
anything goes as long as they like the mood
I like 'em in the nude and I like 'em in their clothes
I love dem body, their heart, mind and their soul
I got into her brain, her name wasn't strange
was a fashion model, carving a new lane
Paris, Spain, fame, cocaine
then came decline like a falling airplane
she bounced back with a baller, but he got killed
now she strip to pay the bill so I tipped and gave her bills

Chorus (Repeat)
