C_Goomba - I Come From lyrics

I Come From I come from a place that is called ‘The concrete jungle' Everyone acts like a primate, be on your toes because you may never know when you're going to have to rumble We have our own kingdom and monarchy Drug lords are kings that cause and promote anarchy People like you and me are at the bottom, simple but humble peasants We do what we can to remain innocent and keep our essence I come from a place where the projects are castles Store clerks stay on their toes because crime is always a ha**le I come from a place where ultrasounds outweigh diplomas Teen pregnancy spreads like cancerous cells in Lymphoma I come from a place where every block can be a battlefield Traffic is like cattle, and any wall and ally can be used as a shield The street corner is like a watchtower where you can see everything go down From cypher flows to people making deals to eat a meal or hear a gunshot sound A five star cuisine is a good sandwich of ham and cheese Thugs slap down D's on the ground and getting legitimate green is a dream I come from a place where much emphasis is put on the words ‘friend' and ‘enemy' No embrace from a mother or brother but we see s** and weed as our only remedy Our elders go to church everyday and only look on and pray with pity as we corrupt ourselves Lay your life on the table boy what will you do to get out and get wealth? I come from a place where Hospitals and Funeral homes are any parent's worst nightmare Funerals are the only time all family gets together, your body the subject of interest as they stare On but can you tell me which side won? The dirt as it consumes you by the heat of the sun Got thousands of friends on facebook, but only are close to one, Post suggestive nudes To all these obsessive dudes trying to holler, acting like ballers calling you beauty but you see Dignity they have none. I come from a place where everyone has become brainwashed to hearing the same thing and condoning it's fruits Beg for change yet persecutes any prophet and mood that is willing to bring light into this the darkest of days I come from a place of sadness where it's hard to let go I come from a place the upper cla** calls the ghetto To my little brothers and sisters, don't be like me but be better than me I may live in the ghetto, but the ghetto don't live in me
