Now I've seen places and faces
And things you ain't never thought about thinking
If you ain't peeped then you must be drinking and smoking
Pretending that you're loc'ing but you're broken
Let me get you open

Now little Timmy got his diploma and little Jimmy got life
And Tamikra around the corner
Just took her first hit off the pipe
The other homie shot the other homie and ran off with his money
And when the other homies heard about it
They thought that it was funny

But who's the dummy? 'Cause, now you done lost the hustler
A down-ass brother done been replaced by a buster
And though I got love for ya, I know I can't trust ya
'Cause my crew is rolling homers
And your crew is rolling dusters

And just because of that
You act like you don't like the brother no more
I guess that's just the way it goes
I ain't trying to preach, I believe I can reach
But your mind ain't prepared, I'll c u when u get there

I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there

More temptation than faith, I guess we living for the day
I seen a man get swept off his feet by a boy with an AK
The situation so twisted, everybody getting lifted
I'm just trying to take care of my kids and handle my business

'Cause it way too serious, so you gotta pay close attention
So you don't get caught sitting
When they come and do all the getting
Life is a big game, so you gotta play it with a big heart
Some of us gotta run a little faster
'Cause we gotta lay the struggle

I'd be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender
If everybody's a sinner then everybody can be a winner
No matter your rag color, deep down, we all brothers
And regardless of the time, somebody up there still love us

I'ma scuffle and struggle until I'm breathless and weak
I done strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak
Always keep reaching sure to grab on to something
I'll be there when you get there with muted sounds bumping

I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there

You need to loosen up and live a little
And if you got kids, let them know how you feeling
For your own sake give a little
Oh, you don't want to hear that, you busy tryina stack

And keep up with the Joneses, taking advantage of your own
The realest homies that you've been knowing for the longest
But some ain't missing a good thing until it's gone
Could have built an empire if not for the jealousy that divides us

We prefer to keep our eyes shut 'til it's right
When there's something involved that we desire
So hold your head up high if you're poor and righteous
I know times seem strife and problems seem endless

But at the times of despair we gotta put ourselves together
And if you feel you're out of the game
Then you need to get back in it
'Cause nothing worse than a quitter
You gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
So wrap up your pity and turn it to ambition
And put your vehicle in 'Drive' and stop by my side

I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there

As we walk down the road of our destiny
And the time comes to choose which shall it be
The wide and crooked or the straight and narrow
We got one voice to give and one life to live

Stand up for something or lie down in your game
Listen to the song that we sing
It's up to you to make it big
I guess, I'll c u when u see me

I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there

I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there

I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
I'll c u when u get there
If you ever get there
C u when u get there
