lyrics

BRIDGE
we aint givin up, nah we aint get enough
go on get em up - dont - look - down



v1
im the difference between
all the kids in the scene
im like Pippen on D
nobody gettin through me
people thinkin im rich
cuz im livin the dream
but how quick they forget
aint no trick to it
the truth is im resolute
i do what you never do
better than you'd ever do
so let em through
i say im a changed man,
i got a new game plan
the logo is new, yet still its same clan

CHORUS

Things are lookin up, oh finally,
I thought I'd never see the day when you'd smile at me
We always fought through oh when we try
I'm always wrong but, you're never right
you've never right

when i writin a rhyme
take my life and my times
put em right in the lines
seem's obvious
but when i first started spitten
everything was written
was undoubtedly fiction
like a lotta kids
but eventually,
i decided to be true to me
best decision that i had ever made
now every September the 3rd is like July 4
we up in magazines, we headline tours,
i never coulda dreamt this in 94
got here in 5 years, imagine 5 more
when i made the call i aint wanna rap further
now im sick, parkinsons, aspbergers
my music is therapy
to whoever hearning me
cause part of me still..
wanna wish a disease on whoever
didn't believe
before you pick up and leave
keep a trick up ya sleeve

CHORUS



man i come from a block
where we struggled and fought
slang a couple of rocks
brothas takin no shorts
and the name of the game here's
survival, outlast your rival, its cut throat
gunsmoke
but yo, amongst those inhabitants
you'll also find a couple law school graduates
we aint all savages, its easy to blame the kids
when they aint the reason that thangs is the way it is
naw it isnt perfect, but we make it work
handshakes is cool, but i need paperwork
yo my man got a raise
but he still underpaid
gotta work like a slave
like he aint good enough
but he went in today
put a smile on his face
and made an old lady's day, now that's lookin up
