This music thang
I'm doin' it for my family and my homies
I'm tryin' to leave some cash in they pockets before I go
The clock is tickin'
It's just a matter of time

{CHORUS}
If enemies lay me down to sleep
I pray to the lord my so he'll keep
when i die in this life of hate
I pray to the lord my soul he'll take

[WOODIE]
In this life of sin
god tell me where do I begin
I've rejected you my whole life
but now im listenin'
accepted you as my friend
my heart is open hopin' for a change
but I' still a killer inside
I feel it in my viens
ain't got the stength to rise up out
this concrete battlefield
cuz i still feel the urge to kill
cuz snoop still ain't got outta jail
plus my closest homeboys deceased
I gotta seek revenge
but who do I avenge

sometimes I catch myself overlookin' my true friends
I'm tryin' to see through all the lies and decite to make
intelligant decisions that'll keep me on my feet but evil
ways make me stray and i get caught up in the same shit
riskin' my life to represent so enemies know i'm dangerous

[WOODIE]{CHORUS}
Livin' that life, this gangbangin' done took it's toll on the
outside i'm fine but inside i'm outta control tryin' to stay
outta prison but the streets persuade my goals when I lay
down to die will good or evil take my soul Livin' that life, this
gangbangin' done took it's toll on the outside i'm fine but inside
i'm outta control tryin' to stay outta prison but the streets persuade
my goals when I lay down to die will good or evil take my soul

[WOODIE]
As i'm sittin' in my room
oil'n up my strap i'm thinkin' back
on all the different pistols that i've packed all the dirt that i've
done with different weapons and guns and how much fun I had
when I was young earnin' my stripes one by one they added up
sin at the scene I didn't realize it then but now I understand there's
consciquences for every action Lord could you forgive me for my
sins up till today but what if I kill again tomarrow does that mean
you feel betrayed

Cuz I can't promise you, that i'll do
what the bible tells me not to
If I feel I gots' to ride
im goin' to ride with or without you
no disrespect intended
don't take me for satan's child
cuz 5-0 got my dirty deeds
gathered up in the gang files

Look at my loyalty
the love that I got for my family
If anybody could
I know you would understand me
So when they call my number
and I take my final breathe and die
please forgive me for my sins
and let my soul rise to the sky


[WOODIE]{CHORUS}
Livin' that life, this gangbangin' done took it's toll on the outside
i'm fine but inside i'm outta control tryin' to stay outta prison but
the streets persuade my goals when I lay down to die will good or
evil take my soul Livin' that life, this gangbangin' done took it's toll
on the outside i'm fine but inside i'm outta control tryin' to stay outta
prison but the streets persuade my goals when I lay down to die will
good or evil take my soul

{CHORUS}
If enemies lay me down to sleep
I pray to the lord my so he'll keep
when i die in this life of hate
I pray to the lord my soul he'll take

[WOODIE]
I live'd another day
now it's time to live another night
I take it minute by minute
and hope somehow I do it right
I gotta fight to keep hope alive
that snoop will get released
but it's the red-suited beast
that gets' the blue suited police

Societies already got us marked
as killers, dealers, and thugs
gangbangers shoot'n them slugs
drug dealers movin' them drugs
ain't no love on this side of the tracks that's why criminals run in
packs who'else gonna have our motherfuckin' backs

you think our president ain't a sinner
he's the cruelist of all
he's the one, killin' the inncocent with missles and bombs while
we just up in the street tryin' to maintain human nature that have
enemies so we gangbang

Lord if you could shed any light up on this life of mine i'd be
willing to listen to you at the drop of a dime because im suicidal at
times and at times im homicidal livin' on the borderline damper my
chances of survival

[WOODIE]{CHORUS}
Livin' that life, this gangbangin' done took it's toll on the outside i'm
fine but inside i'm outta control tryin' to stay outta prison but the streets
persuade my goals when I lay down to die will good or evil take my soul
Livin' that life, this gangbangin' done took it's toll on the outside i'm fine
but inside i'm outta control tryin' to stay outta prison but the streets
persuade my goals when I lay down to die will good or evil take my soul
Livin' that life, this gangbangin' done took it's toll on the outside i'm fine
but inside i'm outta control tryin' to stay outta prison but the streets
persuade my goals when I lay down to die will good or evil take my soul

Lord, I got a question
will you fogive me for my sins if I don't regret 'em cuz sometimes no
matter how hard I try, I feel no remorse I feel I had to do what I had
to do but then again maybe it's just the Old-E numbin' the pain I dunno
'but send Blackbird my Love

{CHORUS}
If enemies lay me down to sleep
I pray to the lord my so he'll keep
when i die in this life of hate
I pray to the lord my soul he'll take
