The Cell Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Girl came through, the light skin honey with the cinnamon smell
Girl was so enticing, baby, make a nigga choose hell
Momma hopped up on cocaine
Daddy on space ships with no brain

Sister gone numb, the pain the same
Why same DNA cell
She was turned out on shine new things
(Diamond gold chains, diamond gold rings)
Center-fold spread, she trying to do things

See, she be on that cough syrup in coke cans
20-inch-rim-man with no land
Her pussy gone numb, the pain the same
Why same DNA strand

We're not well
We're not well
We can't tell

Brenda done died with no name
Nickel bag coke to the brain
Will they ever find the vaccine?
Shitty, damn, damn, baby, bang

Rich man got the double barrel
Po' man got his back to the door
Code white stands for trouble
Shots from the po-po

Songwriters
HUSAYN, SHAFIQ / WRIGHT, ERICA
