Wake, Mr. West
Uh yeah, uh yeah, uh yeah, uh yeah

And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
From the Chi, like Tim, it's a hard a way
So this is in the name of love, like Robert say
Before you ask me, to go get a job today

Can I at least get a raise on a minimum wage?
And I know the government administered aids
So I guess we just pray like the minister say
Allah O Akbar, and throw 'em some hot cars

Things we see on the screen is not ours
But these niggas from the hood so these dream's not far
Where I'm from, the dope boys is the rock stars
But they can't cop cars without seein' cop cars
I guess they want us all behind bars, I know it

Uh, and I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
(Nothin's ever promised tomorrow today)
But we'll find a way
(And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way)

They say people in your life are seasons
And anything that happen is for a reason
And niggas guns a clappin' and keep to squeezin'
And gran' keep prayin' and keep believin'

And Jesus and one day that ya see Him
Till they walk in his footsteps and try to be Him
The Devil is alive, I feel him breathin'
Claimin' money is the key so keep on dreamin'

And put them lottery tickets just to tease us
My aunt, Pam can't put those cigarettes down
So now my li'l cousin smokin' those cigarettes now
His job trying to claim that he too niggerish now
Is it 'cause his skin blacker than licorice now?
I can't figure it out, I'm stickin' around

Uh, uh, and I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
(Nothing's ever promised tomorrow today)
But we'll find a way
(And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way)

'Cause every worthless word we get more far away
And nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
And nothin' lasts forever but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way
