This world was built for people like you, but it was built by people like me. You don't want me sharing your piece of the pie and that's fine by me. FUCK THE WORLD! Born rich, your daddy gave you everything. It's not your fault but I don't really care cause I was born into poverty so I don't think you can tell me shit about fair. Where were you when I was living in the streets? There's no place for my kind in your system. We come from nowhere. We owe you nothing. And now I'm done with you. I've dwelled in the hoods and slums. I didn't want you then and I say fuck you now. I've slept on the cold ground homeless. You didn't help me then so what the fuck makes you think I'm gonna lend a hand building this piece of shit world? We're not helping, we're not helping. We don't owe you a goddamn thing so, We're not helping, we're not helping. Build your own lopsided utopia. I've lived in poverty before, I'll take my chances without you

You're a liar, you phony piece of shit. You're a liar and now I have to bust your fuckin' lip. You're a liar, a liar. You're not my fuckin' friend. You're not my boy now and you never were then. You're a liar, a liar. You act so fuckin' fake. You tried to act surprised when I cracked you in the face. You're a liar, a liar, you dirty little rat and now you got nothing. Tell me what you think about that. You're not my brother now and you never really were. You said you were sorry but I don't believe a word. You spit in my face and disrespected my name and then you wanted pity when the beatdown came. You're pathetic, a whiny little bitch of a man. Wont look me in the eyes but you try to shake my hand. Not today son, I had enough of that shit. You dissed your crew now it's time to deal with it.

We're going nowhere, nowhere. There's no e scape from the nowhere bullshit world we live in. NOWHERE NOWHERE You try to say you're gonna get away. But it doesn't make a difference. NOWHERE NOWHERE We all wanna get somewhere in this life but we never go. NOWHERE NOWHERE Is it ever gonna change? No beliefs, no control. Now I'm stuck living in this hole. And here I'll be until I die. Lonely, old, and cast aside You're going NOWHERE NOWHERE You never had and you never will cause you're nothing and you come from NOWHERE NOWHERE Yes sir I've been beat down, knocked down, that's the breaks when you're NOWHERE NOWHERE I wanna know how did I get stuck with this fate of NOWHERE NOWHERE And is it ever gonna change? No beliefs, no control. Now I'm stuck living in this hole, And here I'll be until I die, Lonely, old, and cast aside. It's never gonna change, Always scraping the bottom of the barrel just to stay broke. And whenever you feel like you're getting ahead you get slapped back and choked. They lied about my false religion, lied about my education, choked out all my dreams. I guess I'm gonna be stuck in the hole forever. NOWHERE NOWHERE NO NO NO NO NOWHERE

GO! Sometimes when I'm driving I think to myself, "I should just pick a direction and go." Just drive until I can't no more. Try to kill the hate somewhere on the highway. Big plans, they get lost and big plans they get crushed. It's my fault, my self destruction. GO! Street lights show no pity. Another town, another city, and still I just keep on driving. GO! Aim my headlights toward the twilight and turn off the radio. Cracks in the road break up the silence. As the mile markers pass me I try shake my demons somewhere on the highway. Big plans they get lost and big plans they get crushed. It's my fault, my self destruction. GO! Street lights show no pity. Another town, another city and still I keep on driving. GO!

Change direction one more time. Change your looks and change your mind. I don't believe a single word. You're not a part of what I love. We would be better off if you just leave. Watch them fade like you know it had to be. I'll still be doing the same old shit that I was yesterday. Fade away cause we knew you couldn't stay. We see it all the time so we'll sit back and watch you fade away. I've taken my bumps, I've taken my falls. I've been knocked down and through it all this one thing always stayed the same. I've seen them come, I've watched them go so I'm just trying to let you know this is for the ones that still remain. Where are you gonna be tomorrow? Where did you lose yourself today? Watch them fade like you know it had to be. I'll still be doing the same old shit that I was yesterday. Fade away cause we knew you couldn't stay. We see it all the time so we'll sit back and watch you fade away.

I try not to complain but you know me better than that. Everyday gets lost inside of the last. My negativity gets the best of me. This place has lost its purity. I'm empty and I'm drowning. Can't find my way out and don't know when I fell in. This world is like the weight that's dragging me down. Dragging my soul right down to hell. I'm falling I keep falling, Can't stop until I hit This world is like the weight that's dragging me down. Dragging my soul right down to hell. I'm falling, I keep falling. I hope I smash in the fucking ground. There's no escaping, there's no running away. It kills a piece of your soul more and more everyday. I need forgiveness even t hough I never forgave. I pray and pray it's not too late to pray.

Build your team. The strongest survive so leave all the weak ones at home. We have to win for the survival of our way of life and to give our children something to believe in. Murder is acceptable because God is with us and he always helps us prevail. Leave all your values at home and brace yourself for the pain. DIE FOR US! DIE FOR US! DIE FOR US! The honor and the glory will all be yours and no one can take that away. This is the game. The rules don't apply. Who's ready to take their turn? This is the game of war

When the sun shines I question my beliefs sometimes. I lost all faith in mankind cause a sunny day for me means someone else's misery. What's it all worth? When you add it all up you got shit. Shit for memories nothing but misery, nothing but a cold and empty hole inside me. What if the tide starts rising up and refugees start lining up and it's your turn to pass the cup? What will you decide? I need a new religion. Cause this one ain't working out. When the sun shines I question my beliefs sometimes. I never had faith in my life. No matter what they said I always did the opposite. What's it all worth? It never meant shit to me, just phony repetitions. Nothing but fake hugs and fake smiles. Siphon the mind out of your child. What if the tide starts riding up and refugees start lining up and it's your turn to pass the cup? What will you decide?

We were just chillin' on a Friday night. Just the BFL crew, no trouble in sight. I got a call from my man and he sounded distressed. He got jumped at a party and his face was a mess. He said, "I hope you're down to fight. I know Ghost Army's always down to fight." He said, "Somebody's getting stabbed tonight." That night got fucked up. I wish I could rewind back to BFL chillin' on a Friday night.

Maybe this is out of line but I envy the dead sometimes. It's hard to say cause I've had close friends that passed away. But they never have to feel again. They never have to be in pain. They never have to struggled just to be denied. Maybe I'm the one who's cursed, condemned to walk the Earth, to grow old and lose my grip on everything that's close to me. But I don't know. I'm just thinking. The more you know the less you know. I'll find out eventually. I hope it's not to late for me. I've never been a lucky one. I was born face down, a forgotten son. I've never been a lucky one Cause if we were lucky, We would all die young. You can rest in peace or live in violence. Conflict, disease, this world don't make no sense. When you come from the bottom, life's a joke. All your hopes and dreams go up in smoke. It makes me wonder what's the better day, the day you're born or when you go away. Lately, I've been thinking about this loveless world and all the evil shit I've done and all the times that I've been wrong. I've never met a righteous face. Heaven must be an empty place or else it's full of people life me. I guess I'll have to wait and see...

I started throwing down when I was only three. My dad knew how to fight and he passed it on to me. I practiced with my brothers then we took it to the block. I went to school and found the bully, cleaned his fucking clock. My mother got so angry. She tried to raise us right. No matter what she did to me I always loved to fight. Seneca kicked my ass down on 4th and Wallace St. You'd think I learned my lesson but I fought him in a week. Win or lose, it's no different. I guess I love the energy. I can hear my mother calling. "Come and get you boys cause they're fighting in the street!" I've made some friends across the years and a couple enemies. I'm d own with LBU my family across the sea. I'm not the greatest fighter and I haven't won them all but I still can see my fathers face and hear my mother call. I drove through my old neighborhood trying to reminisce about the places that I've been and faces that I miss. I've learned about forgiveness and a little self-control, but if it's time to rumble fuck that shit it's time to fucking go.

Some people trade life for the bottom of a whiskey bottle. Too far gone, can't get it back now. Some people love the pills. They'll eat an entire bottle. If that don't work, they'll cut their wrists off. Some people love whores. They'll spend every fucking dollar. Go home empty,not an ounce of self-respect. Happiness must be a dream. I know it ain't material. I've seen men search the world but die alone in the end. So fucking alone. No woman, no wine, no pills can cure this fucking disease. It's in my brain. No matter what I do, I can't get it out my head. Years of memories flood my brain. I just wanna sever these fucking veins so I can sleep forever never coming back no more. Too far gone. Too far gone. Too far gone. Too far gone can't get it back.

She said she's in love with me. She's got a funny way of making me happy. She drives me out of my mind but she pushed me to the edge for the last time. My baby said she loved me. My baby said she cared. But she lied and tried to hide it so I kicked that bitch right outta my hair. She said she could n ever leave and God knows why I believed her. I found out she was fuckin' around so I kicked her cheating ass right out the door. My baby said she loved me. My baby said she cared. But she lied and tried to hide it so I kicked that bitch right outta my hair. She said she's in love with me, She's got a funny way of making me happy. She lied and she tried to hide it so fuck that bitch cause I don't care. She says she's in love with me. GET TO STEPPIN'

I saw my mother so I asked her, "What's the end for your fuckin' bastard?" I lost it long ago and that's what I am. No happy ever after. I'm gonna hang from a fuckin' rafter and swing to the beat of my cold dead heart. Oh yea. What became of your only daughter? What became of all your sons? You let them leave without a reason. And now you're left with nothing but the same of an empty home. The tree of love is out season. I saw my brother so I asked him, "Do you think about the past and does it keep you up at night like you're all alone?" He said, "Man, I shed some tears and all I got was wasted years so fuck the world and all the bullshit that's in it." I try not think about it cause it only brings me down but on a day like this it's the only thing on my mind. I don't want sympathy. I don't you to agree. I just wanna smash the system that fucked it up for me.

When I fight, I fight alone and I don't run cause there's nothing to run from. When I'm out I stay with my boys. We our thing and we try to have a good time. When I work I work alone and when I get home I call my friends. Have some fun and try to make up for the hard times. When they over the hard times end. 12 hours a day and I wanna go home. Working all day now it's time to play.

You're hawking me from across the room. I pray to God that you make a move. I see it in your face. You're not ready and I don't think you're ever gonna be. Motherfucker, I'll break your whole shit. I'll fill up your mouth with teeth and bloody spit. I'll kick you in the stomach. I'll kick you in the knee. Do yourself a favor, walk away from me. What's the matter? Can't you speak? Your voice is cracking and your knees are weak. Next time you better think before you raise up and try to fuck around with me. SMASH YOUR FACE I'll punch you in the ribs. SMASH YOUR FACE I'll bust your fuckin' chin. SMASH YOUR FACE I'll split your fucking lip. I'll smack you with a bottle like them London kids. SMASH YOUR FACE You should have saw it coming. SMASH YOUR FACE Now you're fucking done. There's nothing you can do. You never had a chance. SMASH YOUR FACE You never had a chance.

I've been shunned since day one never saw eye-to-eye cause I'm nothing thinking like you. Yea. Maybe I'm fucked up but maybe you're fucked up too. They tried to tell me I'm a bad seed cause I'm not thinking like you but I made my mind up, I'm never gonna be like you. I lost all faith in you a long time ago cause I'm nothing thinking like you and I'll never trust your version of the truth. I guess there's just no time for a guy like me cause I am nothing like you. So keep an eye on the ones you love maybe I'll get them too. Left out, out of the picture. Locked down all my brothers and sisters. Locked out, but I'm gonna get you. I've been so long and I don't even miss you. What's the point in getting close if I'm not thinking like you? It's sad because I know you feel the same way too. But I guess I've grown to expect this kind of shit from narrow people like you. I've seen it a thousand times and it has cleared my view. You took it all away from me as a punishment but I'm not thinking like you so it backfired and now your worst nightmare is dreaming on you. How many times did you tell me at night if I said my prayers it would be all right and I believed you? I believed you and it never came true. No more facades, no more lies. I just wanna be straight with you. This i s me. What the fuck am I supposed to do? If you don't know than I don't know and I guess we'll leave it alone and see what happens in time. Maybe I'll get some peace of mine. I hope someday I do this ain't no way to live trying not to think about you. I never wanted to live like this but this is all I do
