Lyrics:

CHORUS
Drug boy steady shootin
The streets don’t give a damn
They filled with such pollution
The kids don’t stand a chance

We trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hands
We fueled with so much hatred
The kids don’t stand a chance, I said the kids don’t
The kids don’t stand; the kids don’t stand a chance
I said the kids don’t, the kids don’t stand, the kids don’t stand a chance

VERSE ONE
Well since I was planted at birth, I abandon my own planet
And I landed on earth, As a kid I never understood what I observe
Some of it was strange but most of it disturbing
Always in detention for the lack of my attention
You can call it deficit really I just didn’t listen
And I was always missing the teachers like where is Bobby Simmons
But tryna get a record deal is all I can remember
Its funny cause looking back on the path that I had
On my days on the streets tryna prove that I was bad
I still elevated to the level that I’m at (still elevated to the level that I’m at)

CHORUS
Drug boy steady shootin
The streets don’t give a damn
They filled with such pollution
The kids don’t stand a chance

We trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hands
We fueled with so much hatred
The kids don’t stand a chance, I said the kids don’t
The kids don’t stand, the kids don’t stand a chance
I said the kids don’t, the kids don’t stand, the kids don’t stand a chance

VERSE TWO (JANELLE MONAE)
Some times its hard to grow
While living in fear of the unknown
How can he ever give love
When no love is in his heart
A child can barely sleep at night, too worry about tomorrow
And would it be hold, if he drown himself
Deep down in his sorrows
Will you run and will you show your light
Tell a story, live and try
See its when we giving hope
That we know that we can grow.

CHORUS
Drug boy steady shootin
The streets don’t give a damn
They filled with such pollution
The kids don’t stand a chance

We trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hands
We fueled with so much hatred
The kids don’t stand a chance, I said the kids don’t
The kids don’t stand; the kids don’t stand a chance
I said the kids don’t, the kids don’t stand, the kids don’t stand a chance

Good song! Very timely and relevant to what's really happening to our environment today. By the way, if you need some legal help related to personal injury, ask for it from a <a href="http://www.themiamiinjurylawyers.com/">Miami injury attorney</a>
