16 @ War Lyrics - Karina

Review The Song (4)

Ain't no daddy's where I'm from,
It's just mad mothers.
And eyes that still seem,
They can't look past color.
Why am I disrespected by
Someone I should call brother?
And why girls feel unpretty
And constantly hate each other?

Bad air in my lungs,
Man I can't breathe.
My eyes burnin' from all the dirt and the debris.
And it's third degree.
Emotionless on the scene.
It's like a disease
The way y'all killin' me.

I'm 16 and I shouldn't have to feel like this.
I'm 16, every young boy out here wanna kiss.
I'm 16, and me and my mama goin' through it.
16 on the block
16 on the block

16, At war [6x]

16 on the block
16 on the block

Around here cool is another word for fool
If he smoke then she smoke,
I gotta smoke too.
Now what would I do if I didn't have a clue?
I'm 16 Y.O.
Asking God oh Why, OH
If my clothes ain't tight,
Then he ain't gone like me.
Eyes on the prize,
So the next girl dress just like me.
I'm so full of promise,
But why promise if I'm gonna just be rewarded
By bad actions.
To him I'm just a transaction.


I want you to love my mind,
My smile, my style
I want you to know the best of me
I want to belong without being treated
Like property
Why does this seem like a fantasy?

What Karina is attacking is society through a different way. When she says 'aint no daddies where I'm from its just mad mothers' she explaining to the audience where her people are. Raised with no father. She asks why is she disrespected by her brothers and sisters who I assume are black living in the ghetto. She is attacking her society and she's battling herself because she's a product of her society even If she doesn't want to be. She's not saying she personally is from this environment, but she's. Stating her battle along with millions of other african american young women, this battle she's fighting is with herself to overcome her environment.

good song but.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/9/09

Yeah the song's pretty deep in meaning. But I swear this girl has a proper decent upbringing. So I don't think the song comes from the heart. Other than that it's a great track and her album is fabulous.

I can relate :-) | Reviewer: Queen-Jessica | 2/22/09

Hey, I know how you feels: ima' 16yr old and wearing the tight clothes just to be accepted isn't cool... dosen't mean you can't dress decent. If you got to do all that just to be accepted,then the boy is't worth the pot of gold. FEEL-ME?
