Lyrics

Oooh, yeah Come on, come on I see no changes Wake up in the morning And I ask myself Is life worth living Should I blast myself I'm trying to be a boy And even worse I'm black My stomach hurts so I'm looking For a purse to snatch Cops give a damn About our needs, bro Pull the tigger, kill a nigger He's a hero Giving crack to the kids Who the hell cares One less hungry mouth On the welfare First, ship 'em dope And let 'em deal with brothers Give 'em guns, step back Watch them kill each other Its time to fight back That's what Huey said Two shots in the dark Now Huey's dead I got love for my brother But we could never go nowhere Unless we share with each other We gotta start making changes Learn to see me as your brother Instead of two distant strangers And that's how its supposed to be How can the devil take a brother If he's close to me I let it go back To when we played as kids But things change That's the way it is (Come on, come on) That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Aw, yeah (Come on, come on) That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Aw, yeah I see no changes All I see is racist faces Misplaced hate makes Disgrace for races

We under, I wonder What it takes to make this More better place Let's erase the wasted Take the evil out the people They'll be acting right Cause both black and white Are smoking crack tonight And the only time we chill Is when we kill each other It takes skills to be real Trying to heal each other And I know it seems heaven sent We ain't prepped to See a black president It ain't a secret Don't conceal the facts The penitentiary's back And it's filled with blacks But some things will never change Try to show another way but this thing And then the dope gang Now tell me What's a mother to do Being real don't appeal To the brother in you You gotta operate the easy way I made a G today But you made it in a sleazy way Selling crack to a kid I gotta get paid Well, hey, well That's the way it is (Come on, come on) That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Aw, yeah (Come on, come on) That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Aw, yeah We gotta make a change It's time for us as a people To start making some changes Let's change the way we eat Let's change the way we live And let's change the way We treat each other You see the old way wasn't working So it's on us to do what We gotta do to survive And still I see no changes Can't a brother get a little peace There's war on the streets And a war in the middle east Instead a war on poverty They got a war on drugs So the police can bother me And I ain't never did a crime I ain't have to do But now I am back with the facts Giving 'em back to you Don't let them jack you up Back you up, crack you up And pimp smack you up You gotta learn to hold your own They get jealous when they see you With your mobile phone But tell the cops They can't touch this I don't trust this When they try to rush I bust this At the sound of my tune You say it ain't cool My mama didn't raise no fool And it's wrong That this stayed black I got to stage trap And I never get to lay back Cause I alwayz gotta worry 'Bout the pay back Some thug that I roughed up way back Commin back after all these years Rat tat tat tat tat That's the way it is That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Aw, yeah That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Aw, yeah Some things will never change
