    Some where along the way we lost our way
    temptation clouded our minds, love past away
    Money is the biggest addiction separates our families
    makes us forget why we are mommys and scares away daddy
    responsiblities that are priorities are less than accepted
    when red dot sale hits the weekend and the car note is neglected
    labels classes in society, that shatters any race or gender
    my brothers keeper cant spare a dime if he cant share it with his sister
    because the lottery takes precendence over what should be on the table
    like dinner for the innocent who did not ask to be but you did them the favor
    where can I find some peace without having to have some gold behind it
    cant even pray in Gods house for a blessing without a pastor asking me to buy it
    Its the root to all our evils, its stresses us to all be damned
    Its not a blessing like Gods love but no one seems to understand
    we all were given life to be all given a chance
    to share ones joy of being to be blessed and understand
    that love is valued more than money it can not be bought or put on sale
    it comes naturally from the soul from the heart not about getting a piece of tail
    but finding peace in one self and sharing your worth with others to better the world
    but money comes first and if you dont look like you got none then you wont be looked at by a boy or girl
    who rather see a lexus then a pinto with some rims
    who looks at you funny when your timberlands say TIMS
    or you wear a ponytail and a T shirt, old sneaks and some faded jeans
    instead of the sista wearing gucci, and Parasuco instead of Lees
    yeah somewhere we lost our path my sisters and brother we sure are sad
    we only learn to be thankful for what we have when it becomes what we HAD

    WE NEED TO CHECK OURSELVES
