Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin' new
Where do we go for inspiration?
It's like pain is our only inspiration

Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin' new
Where do we go for inspiration?
It's like pain is our only inspiration

Yeah, I see a place where little boys and girls
Are shells in the oceans not knowin' they a pearl
No one to hold 'em while they growin'
They livin' moment to moment without a care in the whole world

Now, if I could help it I tell it just like it is
And I may say some things that you don't like to hear
I know this, that people lie, people kneel
People die, people heal, people steal and people shed tears

What's real? Blood spills, gun kill, the sun still rise
Above me, trust me, it must be, morning time
Wake up, the stake's up
Everybody want the cake up, to break up with the crew

But when the Karma comes back for what you do
It's too late to make up some excuse

Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin' new
Where do we go for inspiration?
It's like pain is our only inspiration

Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin' new
Where do we go for inspiration?
It's like pain is our only inspiration

I come from people who stand stronger than time and space
Wherever there's competition you gonna find the race
I find a place in my heart for this hip-hop
And pump blood through my vein, my skin get hot

I take you very serious and make you write more
If I don't celebrate, I got nothing to fight for
I'm tight raw, excite y'all like nightfall
I'm tight y'all, I walk the street like y'all

About action, talk is cheap, right y'all?
You start yappin' think about the beef you might cause
The trouble you could get into
You don't study, you not prepared and cats is testin, you

What you gonna do when you gotta face?
The manifestation of the words that you put in space
They already there, you cant take 'em out
The studio gangsta inside you tryin' to break out

Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin' new
Where do we go for inspiration?
It's like pain is our only inspiration

Where do we go? What do we say? What do we do?
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run and there's nothin' new
Where do we go for inspiration?
It's like pain is our only inspiration

Yeah, I see a place where little boys and girls
Are shells in the oceans not knowin' they a pearl
No one to hold 'em while they growin'
They livin' moment to moment without a care in the whole world

Now, if I could help it I tell it just like it is
And I may say some things that you don't like to hear
I know this, that people lie, people kneel
People die, people heal, people steal and people shed tears

What's real? blood spills, gun kill, the sun still rise
Above me, trust me, it must be, morning time
Wake up, the stake's up
Everybody want the cake up, to break up with the crew

But when the karma come back for what you do
It's too late to make up some excuse
