KRAYZIE BONE STAY DOWN (FEAT. NOOSE & 4SHO) LYRICS

[Chorus: Akon]
How many days we gonna live our life,
Strugglin' on the streets?
How many ways we gotta live our life,
Searchin' for a way to eat?

We gotta, stay down, stay down,
Just to see a brighter day,
Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a better way,

Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a brighter day,
Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a better way.

[Verse 1: Noose]
I been in the struggle and no I ain't leave yet,
It's gettin late, and still I ain't eat yet,
Warrants in the mail but I ain't tryin to read s***,
I don't wanna rob him but I really need this,
I'm gettin' skinny man, don't make me squeeze this,
I gotta be the crook but I don't really mean this,
Tryin' to see a better day, I can't see s***,
It's dark around here, it's hard around here,
Get murdered for nothin' when the gun spark around here,
Reach for ya gun and see stars 'round here,
In the hood you die young, we starve 'round here,
We stuck; can't say farewell to welfare,
When that check come, best believe we bubblin' drugs,
To go buy yourself a gun and with a box of slugs,
So they won't morph you for your 1's, or your air force 1's,
It's that way, can you feel a n**** comin' from the slums?

[Chorus: Akon]
How many days we gonna live our life,
Strugglin' on the streets?
How many ways we gotta live our life,
Searchin' for a way to eat?

We gotta, stay down, stay down,
Just to see a brighter day,
Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a better way,

Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a brighter day,
Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a better way.

[Verse 2: Krayzie]
I'm startin' on this colt 40 bottle,
Cause problems just seems to follow me,
Around like I'm the father of drama,
And it's all a part of me,
Like it's cloggin' my arteries, Livin this hard life,
Strugglin is in my blood so I'm pissin' out hard time (alright!),
Now where can I shine, n****?
I been humble for years and I still ain't got mine,
I put in red blood, sweat and tears,
And I'm still on my grind,
n**** I'll put this on my kids,
They gon' give me what's mine,
(Sure ya right, Know I'm right)
But, n****, late-lay,
I been feelin like n****s really been tryin' to play Kray,
But they not, no, nah, nah,
This for my brothers who struggle 24-7,
Who stressin' and all you know is the troubles,
God could ya lend us a blessing?
Cause we could use some helpin' down here (down here),
It's hard to get some rest around here (around here),
We seen a lot of death down here,
How long will we be left down here?

[Chorus: Akon]
How many days we gonna live our life,
Strugglin' on the streets?
How many ways we gotta live our life,
Searchin' for a way to eat?

We gotta, stay down, stay down,
Just to see a brighter day,
Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a better way,

Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a brighter day,
Stay down, stay down,
Just to live a better way.
