Yeah

Hey, yo,
We used to be young, dumb, full o' cum,
Bubble Yum bubble gum, with no funds,
But we still had fun.
Don't worry, be happy, that's what we was.
We was family, caring for loved ones,
Blood relatives; first and second cousins.
Brothers all from the same mother.
Now we act like we don't know each other.
We used to play with toy guns,
Now we bust real ones.
Shoot 'em up Kill Bill style and fashion.
Hey, yo, what happened?
Hey, yo, what happened?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Hey, yo,
The vision that I'm seein' ain't the same no more.
We used to tell the girls we love 'em,
Now we calling 'em whores
Summers of the past was a blast when we cooked out
But now we grab the phone, sit alone, and order take out
Kids playin' outside, yellin' out names,
Now the fun and excitement's in the video games
Brothers used to speak "What's up," "How you"
Now it's "Homie," "Who the heck" and "Why he lookin' at you?"
It really blows my mind how we changed our direction
As the years go by, I gotta ask this question:

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

We-a dire need, but what the empire need
When you lyin' to me, it seems so fine to me
I got a glass eye that reflects the fast fly
Then my acne [???] the latchkey cool
I used to want to hit the streets to hide my fault
The life at the [???], or the pain I've caused
The damage I laid was covered up with praise
Cause, Momma, did you know that I had changed my ways?
But don't judge me, harass my clique,
We only doin' this, cause the neighboorhood permits.
So try to explain, just one thing:

What if we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Yeah, I'm runnin' muddy and graffiti understudy
To switchin' to musician and children across the country
Trips to Cuba and tours with Santana
Help me not to flip this statement and endure these bad manners, man
They ain't chasin' but came to main cause inducing caine is a beast
To sustain your brain pressure
Tryin not to see the fact that you da man, leave the plan, [???]
Cause your choices affect your band members in the air, shit
Later for business, what happened to friendship?
The rest is just nonsense
My natural response is to just to roll up our fists and ask:

How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Na na na na na na na na
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?

Da da da da da da da da
How did we end up like this?
