    Yo man can I get on this mic and tell yaw whats on my mind
    yes yes go head and say it
    Aaight aaight I got what you need
    Bring us what we want
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    So many people tryin to block my eyesight
    Bring down my hopes and freeze like a frost bite
    I can't stop because
    I will continue to drop
    And my flows stay hot like my grandmamas pot
    Lil girl young in this world
    Still the table turns and Usher talkin' bout let it burn?????
    Stop the maddness pick up and get real glad miss
    I can't can't yaw see this dumb mess ya put infront of me
    Men droppin' they pants to the ground thinkin it's a trend
    Lady got her butt up in the air for your friend
    I can't believe they wanna act like they clean
    This life is mean
    All for the green
    Got cats steady yellin' zeen
    I try to hold in my thoughts,but I can't wanta tell her she's a tramp
    Think ya man is the ish girl he tried to rock my world
    Think ya woman is a dime man she just hopped in Jahi's van
    See these so called thugs heatin up street curbs
    Women sellin they curves
    For a lil' herb
    Got ya brain all trashy bashy and it ain't classy
    Makes me wish I could evaporate into the water no weight
    No gravity to hold me to this sick place
    Where the alleys smell like waste
    Poor people out on steps cryin for help
    Yet we wanna send our money to another country
    Folks think it's funny call her a dummy
    Because she can't read and write
    Are you her mother did you help her sleep at night
    Daddy gone maybe mama too
    dang every bit of that is true
    "O.k. will you let me finish this is what I'm trying to tell you."
    True by night
    True by night
    Wish I could take flight
    People so cruel is this what he made you for
    To sit and ignore the poor
    Freak everything on the floor
    Screamin slammin doors
    I can't take this no more
    They want to act sane during the light
    True colors come out at night

    Well, now if you're speaking the truth, you're speaking the truth. And some things do appear clearer at night. Awesome.
