Yeah Its goin down down down down

[Juvenile]
Why does Juvenile gotta suffer so much
All this love in the hood keeps me into a fuss
Last night, me and the fellas almost got smoked
We heard gunshots and we said \"we all broke\"
A 2 mile chase hitting corners quick
Thank god we alright and made it to the bricks
Now I gotta carry a nine i guess
These brothas try to peel my cap,
so I gotta put em to rest
Now is it really worth the fighting and fuss
Because if we kill one of them, they kill one of us
A young teenage black male
Dead before 20, or either locked in jail
They say thats how it\'s supposed to be
But I don\'t think that kind of life was chose for me
So I sin after sin I pray
To the Lord to conversate
To end all this hate

Chorus:
Living inside ghettos not a joke, its not a joke
I keep on seeing fellas from hood getting smoked
Living inside ghettos not a joke, its not a joke
I keep on seeing fellas from hood getting smoked
Living inside ghettos not a joke, its not a joke
I keep on seeing fellas from hood getting smoked
Living inside ghettos not a joke, its not a joke
I keep on seeing fellas from hood getting smoked

[Juvenile]
I would be a liar if i say
I\'m the type of person that prays everyday
Brothas in the hood ain\'t the same
They sold a little dope
Bought a gun and they change
Now they say I changed cause I\'m making records
But I\'m still in the hood handing out some chicken
Teenage sistas getting happy drawers
Used to be quiet, now she do it all
It\'s hard to undertsand this shit
And everybody I question say \"life\'s a bitch\"
But my lifes a bitch, because I made it that
So I\'m praying to your Lord, please change me back

Chorus

[Juvenile]
My family\'s not together the way they should be
And I don\'t think they really ever will be
My grandma is the only one that says she loves us
So whats the reason for the everyday scream fuss
Danny got killed last week
Four dead on the curb for my boy
May he Rest In Peace
Then somebody done killed Tech
Now I\'m thinking to myself \"is the Juv gunna kneel next?\"
I don\'t wanna run and I can\'t hide
Lord if I go, just make sure I\'m on your side

Chorus

(Juvenile talks till end)

    General Commenteveryone sins, not a lot of people pray, but everyone has thier moment, if they believe in a God, to talk to them and ask for forgiveness, and for things to be better. but in order for things to be better, you have to be willing to change. like Juv says "It's hard to undertsand this shit And everybody I question say "life's a bitch" But my lifes a bitch, because I made it that So I'm praying to your Lord, please change me back
    ". those are great lines, if you dont like where youre at in life, you can always try and change back. turn to your God for answers, theres always someone to talk to.
