    here i iz
    in these streets i live
    save the kids
    can't regret nothing i did
    some stuff you take
    some stuff you give
    but no matter how you cut it
    it is the way it is
    so we live

    for another day

    in the land of mirage
    and camouflage
    we stake our claim against all odds
    dip and dodge

    in life on the chessboard
    checkmate we can ill-afford
    and we stand and applaud
    those who came before

    we bring the message
    no matter how unpleasant
    it's worth a mention
    tale of the pre-destined

    lay it down life in the spectrum
    anal to the rectum
    like flies to ****
    we sweat them
    the meek shall inherit the Earth
    the hands of time will test them

    God bless them
    and us all

    we need each other
    there's a crack in the structure

    of Life

    My brother in the struggle

    So'ja,

    brother when the S.H.Y.T hits the fan and the revolution is aired with no commercial breaks (that's a piece?) I want you standing next to me mos' def'. Your work is blessed by those before us.

    "10,000,000,....."

    one love, your brother in the struggle
