Around the same time, Doe ran up in dude house
Couldn't get a job, so since he couldn't get work
He figured he'd take work

We wasn't supposed to make it past 25
Joke's on you, we still alive
We Don't Care by Kanye West

The children are looking at an actuarial prediction of 25 years — supposedly this is based on a survey done in the 80s that concluded with the finding that inner city males growing up in the ghetto had a life expectancy of 25 years due to violence, drugs, no healthcare, etc.

Sounds like a low-ball estimate to begin with..but hey! At least the kids are still alive (good to hear).
