cold places lyrics – ice cube

[chorus]
to all my people goin through it on a daily basis
and it seem like the world is full of cold places
keep yo’ head up, f*ck what they said cause
you can do it and the man will get you through it
i believe that, homey i believe that
if i can picture that, i’ll bring a picture back

[ice cube]
they say “gangster, gangster! tell me how you do it
how you get through it and them other n*gg*z blew it”
i keep my eye on the prize then pursue it
chase it like a cheetah chuck it out and subdue it
so self-educate, n*gg* don’t hate
cause the game i got, is madden oh-eight
f*ck with cube, i’m better than youtube
f*ck with them dudes them n*gg*z is new school
the game don’t change just the players
the rhymes don’t change just the f*ckin rhymesayers
(hahahaha!) they make it up as they go along
but i’m goin on 25 years strong
the sh*t i say might get you through the day
or change your whole life, in a major way
the sh*t they say, might catch you a case
the sh*t i say, feel like your birthday

[chorus]

[ice cube]
you know what? momma said it’d be days like this
straight h*ll on earth, but come up out the abyss
she said “don’t let ’em see you crawl, don’t let ’em see you fall
all they wanna do is laugh when you tear your drawers”
it’s a cold world n*gg* bring a bomber jacket
if it’s another hustle out there i’ma crack it
f*ck the new dance i’ma learn how to eat
get my mind right, stay up out these f*ckin streets
they keep callin me
they keep callin, all the lil’ homies keep fallin
in them same traps n*gg*z cain’t figure out
in the fast lane boy but the bridge is out
make my blood boil, get yo’ life spoiled
get you in the system, get you in the soil
and your funeral was sponsored by unocal
saw you uvn, n*gg* digital

[chorus]

[ice cube]
i know, it’s f*cked up how they do us
pretend they really care, but then they jerry lewis
take that money that was allocated to us
put us in some f*cked up trailers then sue us
watchin katrina, is worser than ike & tina
see new orleans get b*tchslapped by fema
louisiana got racist-*ss politics
free the jena six (n*gg* free the jena six~!)
your honor, osama, obama
even, yo’ momma, ain’t f*ckin with my comments
they want us to quit, forget
and not give a sh*t about these sick-*ss politics
a lunatic is in the white house
make me wanna go do a lick right now
but they’ll make a n*gg* bow down
in the penitentiary, a billion dollar industry

[chorus]

[ice cube]
i believe that, homey i believe that
if i can picture that, i’ll bring a picture back
