(piano intro)

(verse 1: marcus orelias)

Let me start off bat, im not a conscious cat
I just want you to see where my conscious at
No justice and no peace, too many mamas in tears
Sons deceased at seventeen; this prisons a beast
And we gotta eat but government dont give a shit
As long as police see, less and less niggas breathe
It seems like every single month theres a tragedy
Somebody getting shot up or shot down, dont faze me
Not that i dont care, its the way the hood made me
But lately, ive been thinking of adapting a new plan
To grab the youth and take the world in my hands
I hope you understand, ten to four, i watched the tube
Same tube showing you a black lifes worthless
Shows us cuffed up, buck buck, hearses-the pain
I put in everything, if we could link up every gang
When will we fight back? they hitting kids
The story trends, media sweeps then were all fine
Thats why i, dont watch news cause its full of lies

(hook)

I think gangs can be positive
It just has to be organized
And it has to steer away from being self-destructive
To being self productive
I think this country was built on gangs
I think this country still is run on gangs
Republicans, democrats
The police department, the fbi, the ci- those are gangs
360 myself then i exercise control

(verse 2: marcus orelias)

Me and my homies mobbing down the block
I stop; ask myself, how many bodies gotta drop?
I hear, god dont like ugly but isnt fond of pretty either
So our hands embrace heat, incase the streets get cold
If i talk revolution, most wouldnt know the code
If i make songs for club, it feels like my souls sold
Standing on a middle ground, with nowhere to go
Cause you know, these cops give a damn about a negro
Pull a strap, say you shot back; hes the hero
Doesnt matter if you rap or not, have a wrap or not
Exercise control and keep those glocks cocked
Scream out your rights; aight? i know, i bring it raw
Dodging the law, how do we avoid the pin?
When stand your ground, stop and frisk is the same shit
Used to target me, honestyll probably be the end of me
Im hearing stop the violence but that cant be
As long as we dont look at ourselves, as a society

(hook)

I think gangs can be positive
It just has to be organized
And it has to steer away from being self-destructive
To being self productive
I think this country was built on gangs
I think this country still is run on gangs
Republicans, democrats
The police department, the fbi, the ci- those are gangs
360 myself then i exercise control

(outro)

Where are we going? where are we headed?
Because believe me, it isnt always the police.
Theres two sides to every story, three if the truths told
In the backseat, headed somewhere unknown
All alone, my innocence will soon be seized
No permanent friends, no permanent enemies just permanent interest.
Its time to fight the powers that be; let em know
We cant have peace until niggas get a piece too
Were taught our only options to be deceased
Look, ill be what you need me to be just know
Where im headed could be a rocky road.
Shit, this old world is crumbling fast, a new one
Coming slow but fsho, you better exercise control
Before they take control, ya dig?
Rebel with a cause and they hate it
