Lyrics C U When U Get There

Now I seen places an' faces
An' things you ain't never thought about thinkin'
If you ain't peeped it den you must be drinkin'
An' smokin' pretendin' dat you're Loc in' but you're broken lemme getcha open
Now l'il Timmy got his diploma an' l'il Jimmy got life
An' Tamila around the corner jus' took her first hit off da pipe
The other homie shot the other homie an' ran off wit his money
An' when da other homies heard about it they thought that it was funny
But who's da dummy 'cos now you don' lost a hustler
A down assed brother who's been replaced by a buster
An' tho' I got love for ya
I know I can't trust ya
'Cos my crew is rollin hummer an' yo crew is rollin dutchess
An' jus becoz o dat ya act like you don't like a brother no mo'
I guess dat's jus' da way it go
I ain't try'n to preach
I believe dat I can reach
But yo' mind ain't prepared
I'll see you when you get there
More Temptation than faith I guess we livin' for today
I seen a man get swept off his feet by a boy wit an AK
The situation is so twisted ev'rybody gett'n lifted
I'm jus' try'n to take care o' my kids an' handle my bizness
'Cos it's way too serious so you gotta pay close attention
So you don't get caught sittin' when dey come to do Armeggedon
Life is a big game so you gotta play it wit a big heart
Some of us gotta run a l'il faster 'cos we got a later start
But I'd be a fool to surrender when
I know I can be a contender
If ev'rybody's descended then ev'rybody can be a winner
No matter yo' rag colors deep down we all brothers
An' regardless of da times somebody up there still love us
I'mmo scuffle an' struggle until
I'm breathless an' weak
I done strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak
Always keep reachin' sure to grab on to somethin'
I'll be dere when you get dere waitin' wit da sounds bumpin'
You need to loosen up an' live a little
An' if you got kids let 'em know how you feel an' fo' yo' own sake give a little
Oh you don't wanna hear dat too busy try'n to stack
An' keep up wit da Jones's takin' advantage of your own
The realest homies dat you been knowin' fo' da longest
But some ain't missin' a good thing until it's gone
Could've built yo' empire if not fo' the jealousy that divides us
We prefer to keep our eyes shut 'til it's ripe
When there's somethin' involved that we desire
So hold yo' head up high if you're poor an' righteous
I know times seem strifed an' problems seem endless
But in times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together
An' if you feel you're out da game maybe you need to get back in it
'Cos nothin' worse than a quitter
You gotta face responsibility one day my brother
So wrap up your pity an' turn it into ambition
An' put yo' vehicle in drive an' stop by my side
As we walk down the road of our destiny
And the time comes to choose which shall it be
The wide an' crooked or the straight an' narrow
We got one voice to give an' one life to live
Stand up fo' somethin' or lay down in da game listen to the song dat we sing
It's up to you to make it be
I guess I'll see you when you see me
