Song lyrics:

Ah yeah
Its real
Gonna put it down
All these little crime thangs
Homeless the world is crazy boy
Its like this
Its the way it is
Heavy out there, its heavy

Was I really such a bad child that I deserved to get hit with boards
And whooped with extension cords?
Did you forget that I was your creation
And all I wanted from you all was love hope and motivation?

Son, youre disrespectful and youre talking back, get out my face
Kicked me out the house and wouldnt even let me plead my case
Now, Im homeless and Im freezing like the morgue
The only thing keeping me alive is the Lord

Needless to say its times like this Id rather be locked up then
Drinkin water out my hands and eatin out of garbage cans
Can I come back home, huh could I?
Son, youre on your own, why should I?

Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
Nobodys even concerned
Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
When will we ever learn?

Huh, three years from now, I think Im gon be straight
I put my name on the list for section 8
Tried out for the army but I was flat footed
Didnt do no harm to me, cause I was used to it

If I apply for some work, lets make a bet
Ill get the nine cause I dont know about the Internet
What do you think we need to do to change about this nation?


Need to provide more jobs and better education

Nuclear weapons, puh, should be stopping crimes
Already got enough to blow the world up a thousand times
The birds and the bees, deadly disease
Teenage pregnancies, STDs

Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
Nobodys even concerned
Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
When will we ever learn?

A wait, a wait a minute, I hear sirens
Oh, thats the couple down the street
Domestic violence either them or the little girl in 306
Shes always telling everyone that she gon slice her wrists

I guess thats the way it is in the life of sin
Where youll prolly end up dead, or in the pen
But my family aint no better than the next
My auntie Brenda turned her own sister in for writing bad checks

And save folks try to hit you where it hurts
Knowin they the biggest hypocrites in the church
We need to give our minds a bath and do some scrubbin
Stop the hate and start the lovin

Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
Nobodys even concerned
Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
When will we ever learn?

Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
Nobodys even concerned
Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
When will we ever learn?
Learn, learn, learn, learn
