[Verse 1:] I went to see my nigga, he doing 17 1 of the realist niggas I dun ever seen Got caught with a bird his record was clean coming back from Dade all he needed was to speed He was a real soldier but his partner was greed, went out with that 40 how is 17 yrs worth A key shit cause 20 grand will get you 10 a piece he ain't want to hurt nobody He was just tryin' to eat he had a real job went to work 4 days a week said Dis was his last trip and he was getting out the streets he a good nigga a second is All he need.
[Chorus: x2] Sum niggas made mistakes fucked up circumstances now they life gone probably goin' die in Da pin.they dun gave up life they put it God's hands what happened to a miracle all he Ne is a 2nd chance.
[Verse 2:] Wish I had 2 chance 2 sentence the judge kids and watch em beg for they life like me Niggas did give them a life sentence for something that wasn't big. Before they get granted they appeal they gotta do 10 you gotta be on the other foot for You to understand the scariest thing in the world is to be a black man I wish Wat my future hold I wish I knew in advanced I approach life every day just hoping I win a lot of us already lost they sitting in the pen dis shit crazy cause God forgives sins. But wen it comes to the system that shit don't bend I guess it do depending on the Color of yo skin.
[Verse 3:] I though it was understood that nobody was perfect how can 1 mistake make yo Life worthless God made us all we here to serve a purpose yo life in 12 strangers Hands and cum back with a verdict but is that fair what if they all was dirty you mess up 1 time and they cum back with 30 what if you ain't got money yo hold family hurting Den you ain't got a choice you gotta cop out early but if you were rich you wouldn't had that 30 but what if the judge racist ain't nobody around to overrun it the system fucked up It ain't sturdy welcome to America home to the controversy
