In The Ghetto MIX

Shooting Hoops In the Park

Wearing Hoodies in The Dark

Walking the streets at night

we are going to Hang tight

People, don’t you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he’ll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads

We are the overlooked

We are the overcooked

We are the lost society

Lacking dignity and Propriety

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

This Life and Death for Us

Not sittin’ on the Back of a Bus

Turn your Head In Shame

We’re

Done Playing your Game

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he don’t get far
And his mama cries
As a crowd gathers ’round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto
