New s***, Lil' Flip and Lyfe
Talk to 'em, Lyfe, yeah
Talk to 'em, Lyfe, yeah

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just what? I just can't get away
I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just what? I just can't get away

Aye, at fifteen I was makin' moves
Drinkin beer, shootin' dice at school
When most n*** had a nine to five s***
On the block we makin' nine to five grand

Each day, yeah, we got cheap, yeah
My n*** on lock, they call me on three way
The hood hot like a crock pot
D*** fiends cuttin' yards for a twenty piece of c*** rock

Around my way, ain't nobody watchin' Matlock
We tryna' hot wire cars and break pad locks
Turn soft to hard, drop it in Gladlock's
And drive flashy cars and get mad props

And still I won't change
Last week they caught my partner with a block of c***
And can't no amount of money stop the pain
They gave him thirty-five years, his mama went insane

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just what? I just can't get away
I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just what? I just can't get away

Comin' up with no father figure
I guess that made me a harder n***
'Cause I don't like to ask for s***
When I came in the game with a half a b***

But I ain't telling little kids to go that route
But it's on TV everyday like they don't know that route
And little girls bein' fast, bein' grown tryna' flirt
Leavin' home wearin' pants then change into a skirt

I live in the ghetto, I stay in the ghetto
Run up wrong, I'm s*** that metal
'Cause ain't s*** sweet around my way
All I know is one thing, how to get paid

With Lyfe on the hook I know we got another hit
This motivational music I know you feelin' this, aye
And I was raised in the church
But where I'm from you gotta move that work

I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just what? I just can't get away
I just can't go, I just can't stay
I just can't, you just what? I just can't get away

Why everybody tryna' bring me down
Because of me they respect H-Town
Look, I was here when y'all wasn't around
The first week you did alright but then that s*** went down

Why everybody tryna' bring me down
Because of me they respect H-Town
Look, I was here when y'all wasn't around
The first week you did alright but then that s*** went down

They tell you you was born to die
Your mama, she was born to cry
Your woman, she was born to lie
Hold you down so you can't feel life

I tell you that it's all a lie
Young n***, you just gotta try
Keep your eyes up on the sky
Don't let your dreams pass you by 'cause somebody said
