August Alsina Hell On Earth Lyrics

sponsored links

[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
