  • (*talking*)
    See God been real good to me in my life
    So I just wanted to take time out to thank him, you know
    Cause I'm a cat that's been through a lot, and me just
    Being alive and free right now, rapping this to you
    Is a blessing to me, you know
    Cause a lot of the cats I grew up with
    Did thangs, but they all dead or locked up you know
    So it's just a blessing for me to say hey man, I'm still here

    [Hook - 2x]
    See I'm just thanking God, that I'm here
    I'm 'posed to be, behind bars doing years
    Or in the graveyard, with my peers
    Street life, it's hard but it's fair

    [Lil' O]
    I swear to God I was the kid, that was 'posed to be the President
    Who would ever think, I'd call the jail house my residence
    Got caught with the evidence in seventeen, four and a half
    Two down cash, a 3-80 and a triple beam
    Life ain't what it always seem, I ain't always gleam
    I ain't always have, but a playa always dream
    Took Penitentiary chances in the streets, to get this green
    I know I'm young but I can't wait, I want the best of thangs
    Money made us crazy, crack made us lazy
    Fuck a job dog, a 9 to 5 couldn't pay me
    I ain't know no better then, I was just a baby
    I fell in love with the streets, but the streets betrayed me
    Killed all my partnas, turned good girls to boppers
    Some of these boys to junkies, all the rest is locked up
    So much drama in my life, but this ain't a opera
    The only way I made it through, was thanks to the Father

    [Hook - 2x]

    [Lil' O]
    When we jumped in the game, we knew we'd taken a risk
    But ain't no way in hell we thought, that we would end up like this
    The FED's just got Kenny Lou, on some conspiracy shit
    And I probably won't see Mark, till 2000 and 6
    I take a sip of the Belvey, it helps me to calm my nerves
    Cause the price of living wealthy and healthy, when moving birds
    In a city like Houston Texas, where everybody on the grind
    And we was raised since little kids, that we gotta shine
    We live with baller minds, killed for dollar signs
    You drop your ball, everyone go grab a hollow mine
    Pray for the children in the streets, not just Columbine
    Because we dying everyday, it's a sign of times
    Man this life of mine, is filled with death
    Sometimes I feel guilty, that my lungs filled with breath
    A thousand dollars man, they killed my nigga Norris for less
    And because of that I know that I'm blessed, it could of been me

    [Hook - 2x]

    [Lil' O]
    It's a shame when you walk down, memory lane
    All you see is niggaz ghosts dog, picture my pain
    And I don't bar witness fool, I've seen the sickest of things
    My partna died, just because he put his dick in a dame
    See if it ain't the HIV, it's the Penitentiary
    Or these niggaz trying to get you, for your motherfucking cheese
    That's why I stay low key, and try to duck and dodge the heat
    Cause I don't want the Boulevard, to try to swallow me
    See I'm a real G, but I ain't gon lie
    Everybody talking tough, but I don't wanna die
    At least not right now, Lord I'm too hot right now
    It's a lot of shit I want, that I ain't got right now
    Lord, I can't stop right now
    I don't want my daddy yelling out, not my child
    At a funeral, man this life so wild
    We need Christ right now, man

    [Hook - 2x]

    I wanna dedicate this one to everybody we lost
    In the struggle, DJ Screw, Fat Pat, Big Mello, Mafio
    B.G. Gator, all my dogs from the block man
    Cornhead, Lil' Ag, Lil John, man there's too many
    Of y'all to name mayn, Lil' Norris mayn
    Miss all y'all boys, all my partnas on lock mayn
    Black Ass, Kenny Lou, Mark, Pig
    Man I love all y'all boys mayn, Lord man there's too
    Many to name mayn, but I pray for y'all every night man
    Love life and respect life, God bless
