Lyrics: 0–100 by @TheOrator_UK

 

<strong0-100
In my city unem­ploy­ment is kinda high, Thus we hustle to get by,
wheth­er by day or wheth­er by night,
and you can hustle herb, or hustle a 9–5,
money is the motive and here’s my alibi,
my bills are red, and they’re stack­in high,
I take pills for meds, and I know why,
cah I’m tired,
but they couldn’t give a fuck,
they got prob­lems of their own so I aint even fussed,
but its crazy, when nobody there to lend a help­ing hand,
a broth­ers going hungry but,
they think Im the fuck­ing man.
ain’t pride a bitch,
I try hide my pain but they keep find­ing it,
between the pen and the page,
will I sink or be saved?
I cant think so I blaze,
the lem­on or the haze,
and I zone out, till night becomes day,
or I fig­ure out a way to make this world a bet­ter place,

I’m a dream­er,
even dreams have their place,
though were stuck here on earth,
it is the stars that we chase,
Pray­ing one day, we can sit back and liaise,
with the gods,
till that day I’mma keep my faith strong,
in the lord and his will,
but If I can then I will,do my part
to keep it real,
every­body has their part to play
and I’mma keep it trill,
no I Ain’t from Texas but its the way I feel,

sooooo

So I try move with the times,
steady los­ing my mind,
so I choose to reside,
in a world of divide,
where your rights are denied,
and your views cri­ti­cised,
if they do not align,
with the views of the mass,
fuck that, im here to take it back,
spit from the soul to the core,
like I told you before,
see my life­style is raw,
so my heart it ain’t pure,
but its noth­ing.

My mind is in a prism pris­on with vis­ions of infin­ite divi­sion
cause they nev­er listen, afraid to play their pos­i­tion,
but its noth­ing.
cuz when the guns start buzz­ing
and the tanks start rush­ing on to streets,
they’ll be pray­ing for police,
to stop beat­ing on ‘em,
have you like its kiev,
roads are kinda cold but the G’s have got the heat­ers on ‘em,
the youth be the future so I hope you aint sleep­ing on ‘em.
