I don't know dog Juss trying to live it one day at a time.
I hear you man live it one day at a time
Let me get up outta here man my ride waitin'.
Aight cat daddy stay true
Aight man peace
He greets his father with his hands out Rehabilitated slightly glad to be the man's child The world is different since he's seen it last Out of jail in seven years and he's happy that he's free at last All he had was his mother's worth Now she's gone and he's gotta make a change and make it for the beddah But he's back so he's got one strike against him And he's young plus he came up in the system But he's smart and he's finally makin' eighteen And this goes to get on top and try to stay clean So he's calling up his homie who dun came up Livin' like this now they dealin' with the same stuff And had that attitude that who he was was worth it And with that fucked up attitude he killed his first mate Now it's different and he's dead as dirt And realized that the name ain't coming up but it still hurt And can't nobody change this It's ninteen-ninety-foe and we up against the same shit
[Chorus] I never understand why I could never seen a man cry, til I seen that man die
Imagine life at it's full peak Then imagine lying dead in the arms of your enemy Imagine peace on this earth when there's no grief Imagine grief on this earth when there's no peace Cause everybody's got a different way of endin' it And when your number comes for service then they send it in Now your time has arrived for the final touch I see the fear in your eyes and hear your final breath How much longer will it be til it's all done? Total darkness and ease be in all one I watch him die and when he dies let us celebrate You took his life, but your memory he'll never take You'll be headin' to another place And the life you used to live will reflect in your mother's face
I hear you breathin' but your heart no longer sounds strong But you kinda scared of dying so you hold on And you keep on blacking out 'cause yo pulse is low Stop trying to fight the reaper just relax and let it go Because there's no way you can fight it but you'll still try And you can try it til you fight it but you'll still die Now your spirit leaves your body and your mind clears The rigor mortis starts to set, now you outta here You start your journey into outer space You see yourself in the light but you're still feeling outta place So you standing in the tunnel of eternal light, And you see the ones you never learn to love in life Make the choice let it go but you can back it up If you ain't at peace with God you need to patch it up But if you ready close your eyes and we can set it free There lies a man not scared to die, may he rest in peace
I still got to wonder why, I never seen a man cry til I seen a man die
