Everybody I know around my way still there
(Everybody's still there)
And waiting for a miracle to pass them by
Most of them are known drug dealers and I know them well
(Yes I know them well)
That's the only way they know how to survive (how to survive)
Cuz it's the way to get by (it's the way to get by)
It's the only way to get by (it's the way to get by)
If I had a choice aside from this life God knows Id try (God knows Id try)

Blood stains on the concrete and on the wall
Lil Scotty knows kids with guns up in their drawers
Youll see it all in the project holes
Im surprised Im still sane with all I saw
Spoons, dirty needles and death is on the daily
Nobody is except, not even Lil' babies
Im just tryin to survive out here
How many really livin? We aint alive out here
Makin it to 21 is a blessing
Little homie only 12, why the fuck is he stressin?
His mamas a crackhead, his sisters a bus damp
His daddys jail bird so he can sit full now

Everybody I know around my way still there
(Everybody's still there)
And waiting for a miracle to pass them by
Most of them are known drug dealers and I know them well
(Yes I know them well)
That's the only way they know how to survive (how to survive)
Cuz it's the way to get by (it's the way to get by)
It's the only way to get by (it's the way to get by)
If I had a choice aside from this life God knows Id try (God knows Id try)

In the same jeans, hustlin for the guap
Day in and day out, hopin I dont get knocked
Keep my mind on my money, money on my mind
And my finger on the trigger, hand on my 9
By any means, I plan for the win
Mama told me to slow it down, Im goin to the pent
Fuck it, I gotta get it, its a must
Cuz its grimy out here, tell me who can I really trust?
Me and only me, Im strapped up and no one
Niggas out here, no, I aint takin shit from no one
Lil' niggas, big niggas with the lamas
And anyone else who want any type of drama

Everybody I know around my way still there
(Everybody's still there)
And waiting for a miracle to pass them by
Most of them are known drug dealers and I know them well
(Yes I know them well)
That's the only way they know how to survive (how to survive)
Cuz it's the way to get by (it's the way to get by)
It's the only way to get by (it's the way to get by)
If I had a choice aside from this life God knows Id try (God knows Id try)
To get away..
