"Walking With Shadows" as written by and Larry L./gartner Elyea....
One day on the block
I was speaking to a close partner
A black Caddie rolled up
(I shot ya)
I felt my soul reach back through times
With my youth was cold and gritty
On the south side of the city
Read the sign it says 'Town of no pity'

First grade was vague
Eighth grade bounce to the east side
(From Negros to essays)
Scuffle from Sunday through Saturdays
In alley ways, shady ways
When my Mom wasn't lookin'

A midnight marauder, life was part of
Me dippin' out the window of your daughter
Days come and gone, define who we are
There I am at age 19 a ghetto super star

(Bang, bang)
Angel of death came to claim
(Bang, bang)
Holding a bullet with my name
(Bang, bang)
Life is over, too late to change
I'm walking with shadows
To the Valley of Death, come on

Yeah I'm a dead man walking out
Yeah too late to change

So many escapades led me astray
Look there goes the time I first held an A K
Aimed at your way, itchy finger
Lookin' to turn y'all to dead weight
No role model, living life at full throttle
Mind gone doing wrong, passin' out with a 40 bottle

(And I tell ya)
I kept trippin' as my soul kept drifting through death
I'm remenising my life of non fiction
Globe still spinning witnessing what I'm missin'
And that made me yearn addiction to money, weed and bitches
Game brought me the riches, sabotage from snitches
This is just a chronicle of days come and gone, now

(Bang, bang)
Angel of death came to claim
(Bang, bang)
Holding a bullet with my name
(Bang, bang)
Life is over, too late to change
I'm walking with shadows
To the Valley of Death

(Bang, bang)
Angel of death came to claim
(Bang, bang)
Holding a bullet with my name
(Bang, bang)
Life is over, too late to change
I'm walking with shadows
To the Valley of Death, come on

Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying, not to lose my head
Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying, not to lose my head

(Bang, bang)
Angel of death came to claim
(Bang, bang)
Holding a bullet with my name
(Bang, bang)
Life is over, too late to change
I'm walking with shadows
To the Valley of Death

(Bang, bang)
Angel of death came to claim
(Bang, bang)
Holding a bullet with my name
(Bang, bang)
Life is over, too late to change
I'm walking with shadows
To the Valley of Death
