Plies - 2nd Chance lyrics

[Plies] I went to see my n***a, he doin seventeen One of the realest n***as, I done ever seen Got caught with a bird, but his record was clean Comin back from Dade, on the Gator with speed He a real soldier, but his partner was green Get out when he 40, went in at 23 How seventeen years worth one key(kilo) Some sh** cost twenty grand can get you over ten piece He ain't wanna hurt nobody, he was just tryin to eat He had a real job, went to work fo' days a week Said this his last trip, and he was gettin out the streets He a good n***a, second chance all he need [Hook: repeat 2X] Some n***as make mistakes, off f**ed up circumstance Now they life gone, probably gon' die in the pen They done gave up on life, done put it in God's hands I thought this was America, what happened to a second chance? [Plies] Wish I had one chance, to sentence the Judge kids And watch 'em beg fo' they life like my n***as did Give them a life sentence, fo' some sh** that wasn't big 'Fore they get granted they appeal they gotta do ten Shoe got to be on the other foot for you to understand The scariest sh** in the world to be a black man What my future holds, wish I knew in advance I 'proach life everyday just hopin I win A lot us already lost, we sittin in the pen This sh** crazy cause God, he forgive sin But when it come to the system that sh** don't bend I guess it do, dependin on the color of yo' skin [Hook] [Plies] I thought it was understood, nobody was perfect So how can one mistake, make yo' life worthless? God made us all, put us here to serve a purpose Yo' life in twelve strangers hands to come back with a verdict But is that really fair? What if they all was dirty? You mess up one time, and they come back with thirty But if you ain't got money, yo' whole family hurtin Then you ain't got a choice, you gotta cop out early But if you was rich, you wouldn'ta got them thirty What if the Judge racist? Nobody to overturn it This system f**ed up, because it ain't sturdy Welcome to America, home of the controversy [Hook]
