  • [Intro:]
    I woke up in the Spring[x2]

    Yo yo, woke up in the city as a derelict, the ghetto is my narrative
    Never been the same after Pa and Ma had a split
    Stuck between the bangers and the Sunday morning terrorists
    Before I go to bed I kneel and say a prayer in Arabic
    Product of the negligence, niggas having mad rumbles
    Remember when Junior hit T boney with the brass knuckles
    Fronting like they hard, just the other day they ran from you
    California dreaming life mad/nightmares of this man's struggle
    With Mom it was mad hustle even though we fatherless
    She fifteen (15) years clean from the alcohol anonymous
    Never had a trade or got a chance to get her Doctorate
    She California dreaming, tryna mend these broken promises
    Fuck the world and it's politics cause life is not a movie
    Paint a picture on the wall and try to radiate the beauty
    Ah, yea ! my Cali niggas stay on the grind
    Another day another dollar in the 619
    And I...

    Swear some nights I don’t sleep
    Cause the weight of the world feel like the weight of my sheets
    Cali streets wasn’t meant for the humble or the meek
    More of a jungle where we hunger for peace, crumble up leaves
    The hood life, good life I’m stuck in between
    Wishing I could get my brothers a dream, something pushing us back, like we swimming upstream
    If I take another route will I make it out? can’t help but doubt cause
    It’s a struggle and reality bites they'll either hand you a pistol, or pass you a mic or some Nikes
    And a jersey, tell you shoot like Kobe
    Meanwhile, I’m drowning in this bottle of OE, thinking bout how I got a daughter to feed
    And will I be around to water my seed? just a thought
    So much on my mind as I sit and unwind another day another dollar in the 559
    And I'm...

    Undefined, lost in LA Times tryna figure out my purpose everyday on this Earth
    What’s my meaning? when Cali senseless the caught my nukka slipping on the Ave
    Now his face on the shirt
    Leimert - Another day, in, word
    To them bangers
    That be stacking up that paper in exchange for the work
    A thousand planets, a trillion tons, mass of the Sun
    Wouldn't equal to my burden or the weight of my hurt
    You ever stood on my turf you know about them true O's
    Them rolling them 30s and 40s be riding on them deuce fours in my hood
    That don't reflect the sentiment in my heart
    When the blocks is hard as times are we gotta see beyond that
    A city made insane by the gangs killed my pops
    I used to say the city gave him AIDS so much on my brain it replays and repeats
    Another day another dollar in the tres deuce three
    And I...

    [Tiombe Lockhart]
    I woke up in this world
    California ...dreaming[x2]
