    Every breath I take
    Eyes are watching
    The streets are callings
    Im burning confedeartes flags
    Im in a tiraid
    Lost in marplot
    Stuck on center stage
    Is it the color of skin
    Or the life I live
    Is the car I drive
    Or the jealous white guy
    Every breath I take
    I pray for the day
    For racial equality
    Will there ever be a day?
    Every breath I take
    I dont what my future holds
    My cousin just got shot
    Body left for dead
    The boy is freezing cold
    One life for another
    Thats the only thing I know
    Every breath I take
    When im walking doen these chi-town streets
    I got hustas from north ave to 87th. street
    The blow is the same
    Just looking for the next you see
    Every breath I take
    Could be the last I make
    Could be the last time I see my race
    Would be the last time I see your face
    Every breath i take
    I dream of a Queen
    A woman that will show me everything
    Take me from the hood life
    Show me the happiness in the good life
    Spend my money in the hood right
    But also on a Queen right
    To show her money is more to me right
    Everytime breath I take
    Im watching my back
    Looking over my shoulders
    Not scared of my people
    But the police and there soldiers
    The dogs and there rovers
    The walkie and copters my soldier
    Every breath I take
    Well what more can i say
    But I put life in the Lord
    And pray for a better day
    Can there be a better day
    Can I make a better way
    Will I have to stay
    Revelations got me scared
    Spirits asking why
    Why cause my life isnt right
    Any moment I could.......
    Every breath I take!!

    Man much love poets!!
    Life is real out here
    Be ready cause there is someone always watching
    There is always someone wanting
    Wishing they were you
    Its every breath you take too!!!
    The streets are watching
    Love 2 All

    Hi Brother Tantrum
    Very tight drop
    with every breath
    we do take
    we don't know what
    our future holds
    very nice drop :)

    Peace
