going through a thang lyrics – dayton family

i’m going through a thang (repeat 3x)

i’m having problems in my life, steady going through a thang
fall to my knees beggin please that my life will change
my life has been good, but still it riles me, nothing is time is
jacking this store for a gain of, something cause blacks are
killing blacks
i gots to hustle while i, can
don’t depend on tomorrow cause i might be a dead man
i wake up in the morning, there’s no food in my, fridge
my momma give her ’86 is cussing out her kids
age of 13 i started smoking on that endo
kicked it with jodi now i’m peeping out the window
a lot is on my mind and there’s a lotta pressure pressing me
america and its system, i figure that they’re testing me
i fall and catch myself, falling in my wisdom
daddy’s raping daughters and having s*x with em
my mother’s turning tricks and i’m? no more
my sister had a baby and she’s eating off the floor
i’m going through a thang, my mind’s about to crack
somebody took my sack, i gots to take it back
my heart is in the ghetto cause the ghetto’s steady pacing me
last night i slit my wrists cause jason was steady chasing me
no jobs in my city, i thankt that’s a shame
shorties in the house drinking 40’s and we all going straight
through a

i’m goin, i’m goin, i’m goin through a thang (repeat 8x)

i’m having problems, today was a bad day
my father’s creamated, i smoked his ashes and threw em in an
my granny had a stroke and my sister’s on dope
and now i read all the suicidal notes that my sister wrote
but i must move on, i must forget about the past
cause see i’m deep in the ghetto and i’m surrounded by broken
it’s time to see a murder, my glock is the object
i’m labeled as a killer, i cause more grief than the projects
with a revolver in my hand, they don’t figure i live too long
they tell me to live right but my society’s living wrong
i’m sitting in therapy, i got problems i won’t admit
my teacher’s a s*x fiend and my reverend’s a hypocrite
i’m catching myself from falling, my record deal was stalling
i’m ooting on them thangs while my mother’s calling
nothing worth living for but my family and the money
i pack a .44, so save the fur for the easter bunny
cocaine and? i don’t think i’m a ever change
all these problems on my chest, got me going through a thang

i’m goin, i’m goin, i’m goin through a thang (repeat 8x)
