DJ Screw - Inside Looking Out lyrics

How can I come up (sitting) How can I come up (sitting) How can I come up From the inside looking out Sitting in the Harris County Jail Spending all my little time Inside looking out My driving faster cars I'm just staying at bars And about to lose my mind Inside looking out So I get up to take a shower For .. are everywhere Inside looking out Saw a trustee eating more than me And I thought it wasn't fair Inside looking out And it hurts right here Stuck in here for a year Inside looking out Sitting in the county I'm living in an hourgla** Twiddling my f**ing thumbs Waiting on time to pa** Till my next court date But if you been to the county You know you're holding your own fate In your own hands About to go in front of the judge Hoping for a chance To speak out, and just be heard To put the scene of the crime in your own words Thinking witness, man, I doubt to my scenario Maybe now, but I got one shot So here I go Right now I can't afford to be locked up n***as and the crooks I keep my dope and that's f**ed up For what I said you know I about to get a gang or time They found me guilty And now I'm confined To an over-crowded cell in the county For what's my boy said They billed a hired bounty hunter To make the most and, you know, stick around Cause like a beef in the night I'm damn sure go'n skip town But who could blame a brother for doing this .. But for now I'm on the inside looking out (Sitting in there this kind of jail) Sane about to lose my mind Inside looking out Sitting in the courtroom I'm staring at the f**ing judge Don't want to plead Cause I know that I had the d** And the justice system is f**ed up Chances of being black and getting off really s** Cause young black men Couple of problems I really .. My way Trying to solve them Because the judge got me In oppression Once in a jail cell Now I learned my lesson They found me guilty And sentenced me 20 to life They found me guilty And sentenced me 20 to life I'm reading page by page Of the Bible every night Praying to God to forgive me for my sins Saying to myself that I'll never do it again Lying to myself Now ain't that a damn shame When I get out this b**h I'll be jumping back in the game But for now I better do my time With good behavior .. Walking through the gate my thoughts shout Cause I'm on the inside out Cause I'm on the inside looking out Feeling bad cause I'm on the inside looking out (Sitting in there this kind of jail) Sane about to lose my mind Inside looking out .. Back to the mother f**in stank f** the dumb sh** Cause this time I'm damn sure Go'n run the tank Getting swol' .. mother f**er Thinking about them stank Ho's coming through this b**h Dropping n***as by the ankles And the n***as that's been Know what I'm talking about Is my stomach strong enough To hold this sh** Till I get out This mother f**er .. me A chamber full of misfits Three .. and a cot Some hard a** b**h gets The county's a b**h, boy That's paranoid as a n***a get Slap the living sh** Out of a n***a for a cigarette They got me off the street Although my life was very f**ed up For jacking for cars Now I'm jacking for commissary No time to play bully in the county Ain't no stars, n***a Trying to squeeze your head Through the motha f**in bars b**h take the shoes off your feet Or even worth it trying to hang you With the motha f**in bed sheets Sleep with your eyes open If you want to see daylight Cause when I get out this b**h I'm damn sure go'n go right Cause coming up on the street Is what my life was all about But how can I come up From the inside looking out? Inside looking out
