I ain't saying, I'm innocent of all this
I'm just saying, this song is for y'all
For all the times I mess up, when we mess up

Dear sister, got me twisted up in prison
I miss yah, crying looking at my nieces and nephews picture
They say,“Don't let this cruel world get yah”
Kinda suspicious, swearing one day you might leave me
For someone thats richer, twist the cap off the bottle
I take a sip and see tomorrow

Gotta make if I have to beg and borrow
Reading love letters late night, locked down and quiet
If brothers don't receive their mail
Best believe we riot eating Jack mat
Staring at walls of silence, inside this cage
Where they captured all my rage and violence

In time, I learned a few lessons, never fall for riches
Apologizes to my true sisters, far from bitches
Help me raise my black nation, reparations are due, its true
Caught up in this world, I took advantage of you
So tell the babies how I love them precious boys and girls
Born black in this white mans world and all I heard was

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In this world where everyone lies
Where to go no matter how far I find
To let you know that you're not alone

Being born with less, I must confess only adds on to the stress
Two gunshots to my homies head died in his rest, shot him to death
And Left him bleeding for his family to see
I pass his casket gently asking, “Is there heaven for G's?”
My homeboys doing life, begging mama be stressing shedding tears
When her son finally ask that questions

Where my Daddy at? Mama, Why we live so poor? Why you crying?
Heard you late night through my bedroom door
Now do you love me Mama? Why do they keep calling me nigger?
Get my weight up, with my hate and pay 'em back when I'm bigger
Still thugging in this jail cell, missing my block

Hearing brothers screaming all night, wishing they'd stop
Proud to be black, but why do we act like, we don't love oursleves
Don't look around busta
(You sucka)
Check yourselves know what if means to be black
Whether a man or girl, we're still struggling in this white man's world
(We must fight)

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In this world where everyone lies
Where to go no matter how far I find
To let you know that you're not alone

So tell me why you changed, choosing new direction
In a blink of an eye my time away just made perfection
You think I'd die not gonna cry, why should I care?
Like we holding on to love thats no longer there
Can you please help me? God Bless me please

Keep my seeds healthy, banging on my enemies bleed
While my G's healthy, hoping they bury me
With ammunition, weed, and shells
Just in case they trip in heaven ain't no G's hell
Sister sorry for the pain that I caused your heart
I know, I'll change, if yah help me but don't fall apart

Rest in peace to Latasha, Little Yummy, and Kato
To much for this cold world to take, ended up being fatal
Every women in America especially black
Bear with me, can't you see, we're under attack
I never meant to cause drama, to my sister and Mama
Will we make it, to better times, in this white man worlds?

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In this world where everyone lies
Where to go no matter how far I find
To let you know that you're not alone
