Robert Glasper – Ghetto Walkin' lyrics
When I was young
Nobody told me, don't fall for traps
Good will hunt it
Now I'm old, in this game
And I'm sad, in my ways

A hundred miles in runnin'
This is the journey, that I'm on
And I won't stop 'till I find my way (find my way)
Out of the maze
(Don't you know)

Ghetto walkin' (Ghetto walkin')
Streets to find me (Streets to find me)
Devil's watching (Devil's watching)
They can't hold me down
Ghetto walkin' (Ghetto walkin')
Streets to find me (Streets to find me)
Devil's watching (Devil's watching)
They can't hold me down

So I'm low and thinkin' one way out
In the box, in the church, and the people shout
Grandma's hands pray for me
But these streets still preyed on me
Yeah Milly won't you down as another number
Just sell big money in the new order
They're killin' hope in these ghetto schools
Rad chow making all the rules

Wanna way out
Wanna way out
Wanna way out
No no no wanna way out

Wanna way out
Wanna way out
Wanna way out
No no no

Ghetto walkin' (Ghetto walkin')
Streets to find me (Streets to find me)
Devil's watching (Devil's watching)
They can't hold me down
They can't hold me down
Ghetto walkin' (Ghetto walkin')
Streets to find me (Streets to find me)
Devil's watching (Devil's watching)
They can't hold me down, down, down
