    Lyrics

    Intro:
    When Thugz Cry
    Now I lay me down to sleep
    I pray to Lord my guns to keep
    If I die before I wake
    I pray to Lord my soul to take
    Got us dyin'
    When Thugz Cry
    Times is hard

    Verse One:
    Born thuggin' and lovin'
    The way I came up, big money clutchin'
    Bustin' while evadin' cocaine bust
    My po's rushin'
    To my cushin' into insanity
    They shot at my cousin, now we bustin' at the whole family
    These cowards wanna see me buried,
    I aint worried
    I got a lone on the D.A. cause i'm fuckin' the secretary

    I black out, start cussin', bust 'em and touch 'em all
    They panicin', bitches duckin'
    I rush 'em and fuck 'em all
    Probably be an old man before I understand
    Why I had to live my life with pistols close in hand
    Kidnapped my homie sister cut her face up bad
    The even raped her so we blazed they pad
    Automatic shots rang out on every block
    The puttin hits on the politicians even cops
    I ain't lyin', they got me sleeping' with my infrared beams
    And in my dreams I hear muthafuckas screamin'
    What's the meanin'?
    When thugz cry

    Chrous:
    Oh why
    Should you send your child off to die
    In the streets of chalk
    When they die
    Let the rocks cry out
    When thugz cry
    Dear God
    (when thugz cry)
    Oh why
    Does it have to be this way Ahh
    children of today won't stay by
    (when thugz cry)
    Let the children hear
    When thugz cry
    Dear God
    Oh why
    (Ha)

    Verse two:
    Maybe my addiction to friction got me buggin'
    Where is the love, never quit my amitionz to thug
    Ain't shed a tear since the old school years of elementary
    Niggaz I used to love enclosed in penitentiaries
    Still homie how does it feel?
    To loose your life over something that you did as a kid
    you all alone no comminucation, block on the phone
    Don't get alone with your pops and plus your moms is gone
    Where did we go wrong? I put my soul in this song
    To help us grow in time but now our minds is gone
    We went from brothas and sistas to niggaz and bitches
    We went from welfare livin' to worldwide riches
    But somethin' change in this dirty game
    Everything strange, lost all my homies over cocaine, Man
    See they ask me if I shed a tear, I ain't lie
    See, you gotta get high or die
    Cause even thugz cry

    Chorus:
    Oh why
    Should you send your child off to die
    In the streets of chalk
    (when thugz cry)
    When they die
    (We don't shed a tear, she shed blood)
    Let the rocks cry out
    When thugz cry
    (Do you still wanna be a thug)
    Dear God
    Oh why
    Does it have to be this way Ahh
    Children of today won't stay by
    Let the children hear
    When thugz cry
    Dear God
    Oh why

    Verse three:
    And all I see are these paranoid bitches, illegal inventions
    Bustin' muthafuckas with uppercuts, I leave 'em with dentures
    Cause in my criminal mind nobody violates the Don
    I write your name on a piece of paper, and now your family's gone
    Well perpetrate like you could handle my team
    So merciless in mind try to take command of your dreams
    Leavin' muthafuckas drownin' in they own blood
    Clown and takin' pictures
    Later laugh at the punk bitches that turned snitches
    Regulate my area the terror I represent
    Make your people disapear, your wonderin' where they went
    Am I cold, or is it just I sold my soul?
    Addicted to the streets
    Never found true peace I'm told
    Come take my body, God
    Don't let me suffer any longer
    Smoke a pound of marijuana so I know it ain't long
    Where is the end to all my misery?
    Is there a close?
    I suppose that's why I murder my foes
    When thugz cry

    Chorus:
    Oh why
    Should you send your child off to die
    In the streets of chalk
    (I shed tattoo tearz for years)
    When they die
    Let the rocks cry out
    (To my dead homeboyz and the prison peace)
    When thugz cry
    Dear God
    Oh why
    (Yall ain't never heard my bries, nigga, what about if you would die)
    Does it have to be this way Ahh
    Children of today won't stay by
    Let the children hear
    When thugz cry
    Dear God
