Jussie Smollett - Born to Lose lyrics

[Verse 1: Sean Cross] I got my hands in the air, officer don't shoot Told 'em I couldn't breathe, then he gave me the boot Cause they be givin' the time, but never gave me the loot They got my back to the wall, so what a brotha' goin' do? Took a couple of L's, they say a try is a fail It's either put on the mask, or throw the work on the scale Times done change, but I can't e'en tell It's only two ways to go, it's goin' be freedom or jail They gave Lucious a case, and he couldn't even bail Judge gave him a option, go to trial or tell Now he sittin' in prison, while the Governor fishin' We gotta' draw up the plan, then accomplish the mission You put a cat in the corner, he goin' be scratchin' and hissin' We goin' survive in the ghetto, cause the people ain't livin' So how a leader goin' lead, if he ain't got the vision? I had a dream in my head, I gotta break outta' prison Oh Lord! [Announcer] Introducing Jamal Lyons! [Hook: Jussie Smollett] I wanna live, I wanna live my life today Make a better way for me and you When the sun woke up, I got on my knees to pray Let the injustice be solved and mended today Do you live for the lo-ove? Do you live for the hate? Ohh It's like you make it, then they take it And you can't get it back, o-oh! Do you believe in the creator? Do you even know anymore? It's like you make it, then they take it And you can't get it back, o-oh I wanna live, wanna live my life today Make a better way for me and you The sun woke up, I got on my knees to pray Let the injustice be solved and mended today Do you live for the lo-ove? Do you live for the hate? Ohh It's like you make it, then they take it And you can't get it back, o-oh! Do you believe in the creator? Do you even know anymore? Aye, it's like you make it, then they take it And you can't get it back, oh [Verse 2: Yazz] Yeah No justice, no peace, in these troubled times like these I'm down on one knee, and I'm praying for what I need So whatever's in that dark, is goin' always come to that light So if you shot him in his back, two wrongs ain't never made it no right Tried to test my strength, and I fought with all my might Took a page out of this chapter, just to reconcile my life We hate that Lucious goin' through it, we know that he ain't do it (Heartbeat) Let's change for the better, make the world a better place United as a people, be the winners of the race And never k** the Joker, cause he used to be a Ace It's things outta' life, that you just can't replace Like the sketches to the drawing, that the pencil couldn't trace Empire!
