or
Lyfe Jennings

New shit, Lil' Flip and Lyfe
Talk to 'em, Lyfe
Talk to 'em, Lyfe

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just won't
I just can't get away

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just won't
I just can't get away
Ghetto mindstate

At 15, I was makin' movies
Drinkin' beer, shootin' dice at school
When most niggas had a 9 to 5 shit
On the block, we makin' 9 to 5 grand

Each day, yeah, we got cheap yay
My niggas on lock, they called me on 3 way
The hood hot like a crock pot
Dope fiends cuttin' yards for a 20 piece of crack rock

Around my way ain't nobody watchin' 'Matlock'
We tryna hot wire cars and break padlocks
Turn soft to hard, drop it in Glad Locks
And drive flashy cars and get mad props

And still I won't change
Last week, they caught my patna with a block of caine
And can't no amount of money stop the pain
They gave him 35 years, his momma went insane, damn

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just won't
I just can't get away

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just won't
I just can't get away
Ghetto mindstate

Comin' up with no father figure
I guess that made me a harder nigga
Why? 'Coz I don't like to ask for shit
When I came in the game with a half a brick

But I ain't tellin' lil' kids to go that route
But it's on TV everyday like they don't know that route
And lil' girls bein' fast, bein' grown, tryna flirt
Leavin' home wearin' pants, then change into a skirt

I live in the ghetto, I stay in the ghetto
Run up wrong, I'm sprayin' that metal
'Coz ain't shit sweet around my way
All I know is one thing, how to get paid

With Lyfe on the hook, I know we got another hit
This motivational music, I know you feelin' this
Hey, and I was raised in a church
But where I'm from you gotta do that work

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just won't
I just can't get away

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just won't
I just can't get away

Why everybody tryna bring me down?
Because of me, they respect H-town
Look, I was here when y'all weren't around
The first week you did a 'Aight'
But then that shit went down

Why everybody tryna bring me down?
Because of me, they respect H-town
Look, I was here when y'all weren't around
The first week you did a 'Aight'
But then that shit went down

They tell you you were born to die
Yo momma, she was born to cry
Yo woman, she was born to lie
Hold you down so you can't rely

I tell you that it's all a lie
Young nigga, you just gotta try
Keep your eyes up on the sky
Don't let your dreams pass you by
'Coz somebody said
