  • [Intro]
    I’m a young nigga who just live life, I done seen so much shit just from the very bottom
    And it was just always about, grindin' and gettin' it out the mud for me
    I just want a nigga to know what I thought, I got an opportunity
    It’s way bigger than me cause you know God put a nigga in a position for a reason

    [Verse 1]
    I was deep like in the street life
    Was on my grind so I didn’t sleep nights
    Used to push rocks out on my block
    Saw police lights, I heard the gunshots
    I had nowhere to go
    At the end of the road
    Had to do something fast
    Now I ain’t running no more

    [Pre-Chorus]
    ‘Cause I found the light at the end of the tunnel
    That’s why I kept my head high
    Instead of sellin' my faith
    Sittin' here wishin' I would die

    [Chorus]
    Living in hell on earth
    Dead last so I couldn’t see first
    But I know it wouldn’t get worse, so it only got better
    Better and it’s getting better
    Living in hell on earth
    Dead last so I couldn’t see first
    But I know it wouldn’t get worse, so it only got better
    Better and it’s getting better

    [Verse 2]
    ‘Cause I knew one day that life would get better
    Finally made a way so now it’s all better
    ‘Cause I knew one day that life would get better
    Finally made a way so now it’s all better, yeah

    [Outro]
    My nigga half the city mind is the only way to survive is kill
    And that may mean protecting myself or I’mma come up
    It's shoot em up bang bang on every nigga, ya dig? It’s my squad against yours
    And a lot of niggas got that mentality thinkin' you know, that’s the way to come up, that’s New Orleans
