Makaveli – Changes lyrics

ooh, yeeeaaa, ooh
cmon, cmon

i see no changes
wake up in tha mornin and i ask myself
is life worth livin or should i blast myself?
im tired of bein poor, and even worse, im black, my stomach hurts
so im lookin for a purse to snatch
cops give a damn about a negro
pull tha trigga, kill a nigga hes a hero
give tha crack to the kids who the hell cares
one less ugly mouth on the welfare
first ship em dope, that im dealin bruthas
give em guns step back watch em kill each other
its time to fight back thats what huey said
2 shots in the dark now hueys dead
i got love for my brutha but we could neva go nowhere
unless we share wit each otha
we gotta start makin changes
learn to see me as a brutha instead of 2 distant strangas
and thats how its sposed to be
how could the devil take a brutha if hes close to me
uh, i'd love to go back to when we played as kids
but thangs changed
and thats the way it is

cmon, cmon
thats just the way it is
thangs will never be tha same
thats just the way it is
aw yeah
and yeah
oh my, oh my
thats just the way it is
thangs will never be tha same, neva be tha same yea yea yea
aw yea, thats just the way it is
aw yea

i see no changes
all i see is racist faces
misplaced hate
makes disgrace to races
we unda
i wunda wut it takes to make this
one betta place lets erase tha wasted
take the evil out the people theyll be actin right
cuz both black and white
is smokin crack tonight
and the only time we chill is when we kill each other
it takes skill to be real time to heal each otha
and even though it seems heaven sent
we aint ready to see a black president, uh
it aint a secret dont conceale
the factor
penitenturys packed
and its filled with blacks
but some thangs will neva change
try ta show anutha way
but ya stayin in tha dope game
now tell me whats a mutha to do
Bein real dont appeal to the brutha in you
You gotta operate the easy way
I made a G today
But ya made it in a sleazy way
Sellin crack to the kids
I gotta get paid
Well hey well thats the way it is

Cmon cmon
Thats just the way it is
Thangs will neva be the same
Thats just the way it is
aw yea
and yeah
Oh my, oh my
Thats just the way it is
Thangs will neva be tha same, neva be tha same yea yea yea
Thats just the way it is
Aw yea

You gotta make a change
It's time for us, the people to start makin some changes
Lets change the way we eat
Lets change the way we live
And lets change the way we treat each other
You see the old way wasnt workin so its on us
To do what we gotta do to survive

And still i see no changes
Cant a brutha get a little peace
Its war on the streets and its war in the middle east
Instead of way of poverty
They got a war on drugs
So the police cant botha me
And i aint neva did a crime i aint hafta do
But now back wit tha glacks, givin it back to you
Don't betta jack you up, back you up, crack you up
Or pimp slack you up
You gotta learn to hold ya own
They get jealous when they see ya with ya mobile phone
Well tell tha cops cant touch this
I dont trust this
When they try ta rush i bust this
Thats the sound of my two
You say it aitn coo
My mama didnt raise no fool
And as long as i stay black
I gotta stay strapped
And i neva get ta lay back
Cuz i always gotta worry bout tha payback
Some buck
that i ruffed up way back
Come back afta all these years
Rat tat tat tat tat
Thats the way it is

Thats just the way it is
Thangs will neva be tha same
Thats just the way it is
aw yeah
You my brutha your my sista
Thats just the way it is
Thangs will neva be tha same
Thats just the way it is
aw yeah
Some things will neva change
