Gun shot noises heard from blocks away
Somebody just got shot !
Damn it makes you wonder if you’re next or not
YO the violence needs to stop Because all it’s leading to is the cops
But the cops don’t do nothing But get paid
We drinking water and they sipping lemonade Teens having mad babies .
It’s like babies having babies Damn yo this shit is really crazy .
Young men rather hang on corners And smoke trees than To be in school receiving degrees I’m getting tired of seeing all these Statistics about a black man . We shouldn’t just be settling we should be taking a stand .
