lost in the night


i grab a bottle of henny
pour two shots
for my brother an then me
an drink till its empty
i love the way mamma used to smile at
me but i only responed violently
night after night on my knees prayin quitly
that death come silently
the lord left from inside of me
hate is the only thing inside of me
thats drivein me
so at night when i cant sleep
i grab a bottle of henny
an pour two shots
for my brother an then me
an drink till its empty
i was once told that the world was mine
but now i understand that the same sun shines
for everyone walkin the earth
hartless from birth
niggaz draw then a long pause
hollows flyin I get home
dinners on the table cold
mamma looked into the eyes of a nigga
saw he was a sinner
flat lined the other day
meet the devil on the way
told em mamma wont let me stay
felt my hart beat
an the devil retreat
take a seat an listen to what im sayin
i wouldnt be here today
if mamma hadnt kept prayin
