Now of course I want peace on the streets

but realisticly

painting perfect pictures ain’t never work

my mysery was so deep

couldn’t sleep through all my preasures

my quest for cash

I learned fast

you survive voilent measures

memorys of adalicent years

their was unity

but after puperty we roll over

to our community

so many bodies dropping

its got to stop

I want to help

but still I’m stepping

keeping my weapon

must protect myself

promise of a better tomorrow

ain’t never reaching

plus my teachers were to petrfied in class to teach me

sipping thunderbird

and grape cool-aid

calling Earl since my stomach was empty

it suduced me to f*ck the world

watch my lil homiez

lose there child hood to guns

nobody cries no more

cause we all die for fun

so why you ask me if I want peace

if you can’t grant it

niggas fighting across the whole planet

so we can never be peace


We’ll never be peace, or all we all just headed for doom, still


by the peace, and i’ll know there never be peace, that’s why I keep my

pistol when i walk the streets cause there never be peace


No time to rest

they stressed out

I can’t remember the days my homie was here

now a days we live in fear

the stuggle is still here

so now who’s grabbing there strap

who’s getting bucked wild

representing the generation of killers

when I was a child had many dreams

reality kept me and my homiez stressing

tyring to raise my baby girl to be the strongest

know when I’m doing wrongest

I never had a bright day

just drunkless smoking blunts

getting faded

wishing my partna made it

if it was peace

or ???????????

I know there will never be

all my tears were shed

when I lost my homie number three

it’s getting harder to see

impossibilty should we just face it

can’t get through the pain

but still I can’t erase it

so many trials and tribulations

things we facing

wicked days

can’t see no brighter days

it’s time to chase it

cross dreams

cause the scene is when you never get by

that’s why I got to stay high

you’ll never know when you’ll die

my heart will never leave the ghetto

I know to rise only in peace

that’s why I say

there ain’t never going to be no peace



Living life lonely

but I can’t even cry

cause visions of diseption

all around me

got my eyes full of despise

who can I trust

why even try

they say the world is mine

but I know that’s a lie

living to die

set up from birth

steady dreaming

wishing for better days

but all I see is demons

close my eyes

reminisence of my childhood

all I felt was pain from my arrival

no memories of nothing nice

nothing but blinded reminders of my future life

I’m freaking out

I’m getting closer to that other level

will I be strong with game

or just the heartless devil

I hope I’m able to find peace in me

cause there’s a storm sixty four inches deep in me

and I try to do the right thing

but it’s the wrong thing

that seems to bring me right back

to this dirty game

there never be peace

f*ck peace

(Chorus) x3


shit f*ck peace, on the strength to my niggas get a peace, we can’t


peace, how the f*ck we gonna live happy when we ain’t got none, tear

drops and closed caskets, these mothafuckas are smiling but don’t mean

much, why cause I got to be a thug, see drugs gonna turn this


head out, all us niggas acting up, wild ass mothafuckn adalicent,


niggas ain’t got a childhood no more, how the f*ck can you have a

childhood when your at the funeral every fuckn weekend, you


are talking about peace, niggas it ain’t no mothafuckn peace, you


seen the news mothafucka, you ain’t heard, little babies getting


mothafuckas killing their whole family, little kids getting thrown off

buildings, mothafuckas getting abused, peace, niggas you out your

mothafuckn mind, f*ck peace, we can’t never have peace until you

mothafuckas clean up this mess you made, Deathrow, until you clean up

the fuckn dirt you dropped, till we get a peace, f*ck peace, westside,

Deathrow, Outlaw Immortals, Thug Life baby, you know we do this shit,

that was Storm, Marvelouz, and Pac
