It was just another night
Daylight wake up go through the next day
Will you survive you don't know
So you really gotta pay
Down in the hood
The rules of the streets are dark
Times are hard
You don't know where you start
First be real to our woman
Treat her like a lady
`Cause there's so much
You better now know
Before you leave a crack-baby
Way to hell or paradise now
Who decides
You lived you live in a fast lane
Now you pay the prize
Chorus:
In the night... in the dark
There are shadows in my heart
Feel this pain
Which is driving me incredibly insane
In the mirror of the streets
There's so much for you to see
Just one minute
To think about you life
Now you sittin' layback
Straitjackets handcuffs all around
Waiting for a second chance
Just to get back to downtown
The ghetto didn't seem so tough
I tell ya that it is outlaws livin' there
Live as drug addicted kids
It's worldwide cash
Rules the things around me
There's someone outside who still love ya
It's our own family
You're just a victim of the streets
Slipped down like a hurricane
I told you take a minute
To erase the pain
Chorus
If you can feel the last of our tears
Take a minute 'cause the end is so near
Things will never gonna change
Thinkin' about this wicked game
Of faded memories
Deep in your mind
Is the place to be
Chorus (2x)
Look into the darkness
The way of loneliness
Look into the darkness
