Not everything is good, not everything is bad
But just look at the kinda life you could have had..." x6
"Just because I shoulda doesn't mean that I woulda
'Burbs, no hood-a. I was a good-a...
Kid. Oh Heaven forbid!
Never got in a any trouble, though I wish that I did
Sun come up and sun goes down. Issues painted all over the town
Street-sign wars and gangbang violence
While the little kiddies sing and play on their violins
Never truly knowing how big the world is
But what can you expect from such little kids?
Sheltered and hidden from all the world's dangers
'Don't stay out late, and don't dare talk to strangers.'
Mom won't say why - and dad can't explain
How even with humans there is an economic food chain...
At the bottom are the dropouts, the scumbags, the crooks -
So you better keep your nose buried in the school books
Next are the working class - your mother and me
Fighting for a better future that the can't even see...
The privileged don't know the value of a dollar -
Whole life spent wearing the 'white collar.'
Never had to deal with the struggle, the squalor
I speak like I understand - armchair scholar."
* Remember how I told you the hen lays an egg...? When the baby grows up to be an old man an dies... They bury his body in the ground. But his soul goes to Heaven...*
"She was a young girl - straight A student
Even took ballet - majestic movements
Everybody knew that she would go far
Until she lost it all in the brights of a car...
Rushed to the hospital - losing blood fast
Made her parents thankful - her suffering wouldn't last
But theirs was eternal - they couldn't help but cry
How could you lose it all in the blink of an eye?
Dad asked himself why all the kids played while his *angel* had to die...
But he stopped himself - it really ain't worth it feeding demons inside
He had to move on - loved his baby girl but he had to stay strong
Kissed her picture every morning - helped him get along
World still held beauty even though she was gone
In life you gotta deal with the cards that you're dealt
That's why I put a smile on when the hurt's felt..."
*Beautifully melodic humming and *cooing**
