Just another victim of the, victim of the ghetto
Just another victim, that's how it goes

Heavy foot traffic jam the hallway all day
Adolescence, workin' for small pay
World so little, he could never leave his block
His home full of riddle, so he always need his glock

Coast with his eye open, keep his metal smokin'
Young wasted minds, fiendin' on dimes, cokin'
Forgot kids, quick to break rules an' known to make fools
Out of many, down the streets be more safe than school

There's no diploma that can break him from the coma
A bloody war in the country, the youth hungry
On the corner, hyenas amongst me
Yabbin' 'bout the stories, they be hearin', always swearin'

Can't even spell the shit that he be wearin'
Caught up in the silk web of material
Superficial stains ya brain tissue, that's the issue
The young is lost at their own cost, dreamin'
Screamin' how they never hold positions, that's demeanin'

Mothers of murder victims share the same grief
The elderly shake their head in disbelief
An' no relief came 'til I aimed
An' blast one shot an' left my name, the gza

Just another victim of the, victim of the ghetto
Just another victim, that's how it goes

My residence is a city where army veterans smoke rocks
On torn down blocks drug spots set out their shops
An' cops watch innocent niggaz roamin' in flocks
Romanism in tops, papers an' knots

Churches an' liquor stores on every corner
Plot to get money not, some funny niggaz act
Like they could pop glocks an' those who can't cop
Sisters givin' up ass a lot, brothers givin' up cash a lot
They be strugglin' to become someone because their parents not

Just another victim of the ghetto, where lost minds settle
When the Devil uncivils society an' die free
With double 'w' followed by J-D around the necks an' wrists
The God is now a dog, the earth is called a bitch

An' all my people wish to get rich in this wilderness
To push a Lexus, ice on everythin'
From rings an' bracelets to the necklaces
Children molested within these pest infested buildings
Thieves, uneducated in these schools paint on the ceilings

Is peelin' off but all I see is lost black babies callin'
"Please somebody save me, please somebody save me"

Just another victim of the, victim of the ghetto
Just another victim, that's how it goes
Just another victim of the, victim of the ghetto
Just another victim, that's how it goes

Just another, just another victim of the ghetto
