I get up Friday morning and I'm late for school
Only 13, but I got a mad pull, it's cool
Who needs a job when I can steal and rob
Making all that money, but my mom don't think it's funnly
Call up the Homies cuz today's the day they gonna make a man of me
A gangsta, an O.G. They say I'm young, but I got much heart
Feel like a kid inside, I know how to play the part
Gotta get jumped in, but man it ain't no thang
5 minutes of pain for the love of a gang
Might not be right, but it's all I Know
Messed up and joined a gang, gave away my soul

Nothing matters to me, except right now
Make it through till tomorrow, some way some how
You don't understand, but it makes sense to me
I won't stop until I rest in peace

I got my first 9-lim, so brothers beware looking to get into some trouble
All it takes is a stare without a care, I see some fools that ain't from my set
Represent what I claim, then take my respect scared as heck,
But I'm down with how you figure, you might be big
But my trigga is bigga, Bust five shots as I fall to the floor
Within a single second, I become Hardcore
I knew this morning, it would be one of those days G'
I missed them suckas again, but hit a lady and her baby

[Chorus 2x]

Get that fool
Live by the sword, Die by the sword
Innocent life, what they dying for
Live by the Gat, die by the gun
Who suffers when it's all said and done

    General CommentIt's a look on gang life.

    P.S: there's a line missing at the end. I think it goes, "And here's the plot. Taking niggers out with a buck shot."

    General CommentIt does sound like he says "Niggers" at the end of the song. As a POD fan, I know that they are a Christian/Mainstream band with strong Christiain beliefs and messages within their songs. I understand pod's background and history, I have mixed feelings about this line though. I for one do not say the "N Word" because i'm white. A lot of times when this word is said, it has a negative connotation. I know that one member of the band is black but I'm not sure how i feel about this word being said at all. I understand that African/Americans kind of own the word, but is it still right to use it? I still love this band and this song, i was just curious what other people thought.

    General CommentThe line with the n-word is just a sample. No need to worry.
