    Lyrics

    Ah yeah
    It's real
    Gonna put it down
    All these little crime thangs
    Homeless the world is crazy boy
    It's like this
    It's the way it is
    Heavy out there, it's heavy

    Was I really such a bad child that I deserved to get hit with boards
    And whooped with extension cords?
    Did you forget that I was your creation
    And all I wanted from you all was love hope and motivation?

    Son, you're disrespectful and you're talking back, get out my face
    Kicked me out the house and wouldn't even let me plead my case
    Now, I'm homeless and I'm freezing like the morgue
    The only thing keeping me alive is the Lord

    Needless to say it's times like this I'd rather be locked up then
    Drinkin' water out my hands and eatin' out of garbage cans
    Can I come back home, huh could I?
    Son, you're on your own, why should I?

    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    Nobody's even concerned
    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    When will we ever learn?

    Huh, three years from now, I think I'm gon be straight
    I put my name on the list for section 8
    Tried out for the army but I was flat footed
    Didn't do no harm to me, 'cuz I was used to it

    If I apply for some work, let's make a bet
    I'll get the nine 'cuz I don't know about the Internet
    What do you think we need to do to change about this nation?
    Need to provide more jobs and better education

    Nuclear weapons, puh, should be stopping crimes
    Already got enough to blow the world up a thousand times
    The birds and the bees, deadly disease
    Teenage pregnancies, STDs

    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    Nobody's even concerned
    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    When will we ever learn?

    A wait, a wait a minute, I hear sirens
    Oh, that's the couple down the street
    Domestic violence either them or the little girl in 306
    She's always telling everyone that she gon slice her wrists

    I guess that's the way it is in the life of sin
    Where you'll prolly end up dead, or in the pen
    But my family ain't no better than the next
    My auntie Brenda turned her own sister in for writing bad checks

    And save folks try to hit you where it hurts
    Knowin' they the biggest hypocrites in the church
    We need to give our minds a bath and do some scrubbin'
    Stop the hate and start the lovin'

    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    Nobody's even concerned
    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    When will we ever learn?

    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    Nobody's even concerned
    Some things'll never change, that's just the way it is
    When will we ever learn?
    Learn, learn, learn, learn
