Lyrics Edit

[2Pac] Sometimes it's hard, to wake up in the morning Mind full of demons I don't wanna hear 'em anymore Got me heartbroken, fine, so many babies screamin' Cause they seein' destruction before they see a human bein' So they start smokin', we will never get our day Until we learn to pray, keep our families in shake Cuz they all broken, why do ghetto birds die Before we learn to fly, somebody else should try Cockin' guns, smokin', we can all make a change So I'm told but I haven't seen a change unfold I'll keep hopin' please, if you prefer to breathe Communities in need, of people that will lead Keep your eyes open, I can only say I'll try Until the day I die, I promise to be wise With my heart open, greed brings only misery Away the tragedy, so I stay sucker free Only a few chosen rise, my ghetto queens rise Don't be afraid to try, too many of us die For the door to open wide, my brother's speak wise Stay focused on the prize, though everybody dies

[Eminem] We can only learn to take, our anger and our hate Control our mental states, settle down and set it straight Maybe we can learn to take a second to pump the brakes Before we said it, regret it later and let it escalate Cause by then it's just too late, there's so much we can take And there's only so much someone can swallow and tolerate To the point that he just breaks, snaps, and it's all it takes You think that we was learnin' from other rappers' mistakes But we ain't, its grain to go against With every artist comes the image he portrays and the picture that he paints But in the midst of all this anger and this angst Never once did you heard me say I'm a gangster and I ain't hear no complaints But I know, that I will always continue to grow As long as I lead, and never follow in no one else's shadow There will never be another me, and that I can guarantee That's why the fuck I remain sucker free To this day, the game, will never be the same No matter how much fame and success they attain There will never be another me And no matter what they do, there will never be another you You can search but you'll never find You can try to rewind time, but in your hearts and your minds We will never die, we are forever alive

[2Pac] And we continue growin', one day at a time

[Outlawz] Don't get caught in the publicity and caught in the hype Rappers are regular people minus money ya like Searchin' for fortune and fame and superstardom All the jewelry, all the cars, whose crew's the hardest There's not a hip-hop police, the villains is watchin' And the kids think beef, is they only option Outlawz born filthy, guilty as charged My memories took a dive, my Machiavelli lives on You think the industry is fun, and no pity with guns And when your money is up, that's when your enemies come So if he die, and came back, would he try to save rap We needin' a change, the drama remains the same I spend my whole life, fightin' myself That I can't win, so I'm invitin' some help And hey now then, I take rights and no lefts I'm still, just like a kid, lookin for stripes on my belt Yeah, that there is a fight in itself So I just pray and hope God, take a light to myself No matter how much I try, stay alive, I'm a die a man Still standin' and in love with my pride Heard frivolous beats, we past that I'm tryin to keep income comin' in and collect on my ass cap The rappers in the game ain't changed And I finally realize that we not in the same game The hatin' will never end, so I guess I'll deal with it Them .45's will pop killas, yes I'm still with it The streets is military, you gotta be a soldier Gotta stay leery, and keep your eyes on the rollers They do what they gotta do to shock them and hold us So we gotta do what we gotta do to keep rollin' One way at a time, keep the faith in your mind

[2Pac] And we continue growin', one day at a time, damn
