    Lock down in black chambers
    Regret the day I played a hero;
    Locked down in black chambers
    Nigg..rs calling me homie;,
    Living by the code of destruction;
    Sold my soul to Satan wanting to be a hero;
    All I had to do is educate my mind;

    Lock down in black chambers trying to be a hood
    Killing nigg—s as they disrespect my turf.
    I want you to know, never understood
    the meaning of hero;’
    I tried real hard, never understood the word holy;
    I want you to see, the life of the hood
    living in the eyes of my own deception
    When you take a life, you take your own.

    Living in a cage with nigg—s bad than me
    Got a pretty face, I became their bit..h
    Turning me out when ever they pleased;
    I ask my self who is the man, and who is the worm
    Living under the codes of Satan, they turn me
    Into a *****, call it coma what goes around
    Shall come again..

    I want you to know, recruiting babies from
    the cradle, teaching them to be murders,
    Using my sisters, for the inner whore circles.
    Living by the green, selling white powder to
    My peoples jewels, killing of the legacy black roots,
    Living in a space call Satan tomb.

    I tried believing yaw god, but sold my soul to Satan
    Had to prove I was a man
    I want you to know,
    I acknowledged with scripts,
    burying my homies, living under the
    Emancipations of death,
    boxes in the dirt, tears upon
    My victims mama’s face
    brother man is dead, I live his death each day
    So who is really free, why do I hurt?

    They said you're by my side, keep homies alive,
    I couldn’t understand the meaning living death, I
    Decided, make up my mind, I am already dead, am I About to fall,
    Living in a cage of instant death, I shall never
    See the outside again, nigg—s coming back
    In the mist of the night, holding my mind
    As they remind me of the black finger;
    Those pull the trigger.

    I know you aren’t everywhere,
    you cant catch me when I fall,
    Let me tell you about a hero was
    cut off in the end, I cried upon
    the lord, he said treason, I’m not home.
    I call upon my homie’s they never had the time
    I was once respected by my homies, I live in a 8/11
    Cell, thugs that live upon my cage.
    a hero instead, I pleaded my cause,
    I fall to my knees, the image I killed.
    peace to the deceased,
    an those who made my heart bleed-
    When tears fall upon my eyes,
    Trying to play a game
    Living in a 8/11 cell
    Trying to be a rapper teaching genocide
    Trying to be a man, hook on stupidity
    All I can think about, would I ever see
    My mama before she leaves this place call earth.

    Hi Sister ASHANTA
    So wonderful reading you sis
    What you have indeed shown
    in your flow
    that there is no different
    from the slave chambers back then
    to the one that are being builded
    everyday in this country
    wonderful drop sis

    Peace
