[chorus]

[dmx:]
if everyone else had my eyes
then, who i am wouldn’t be a surprise
just because i’m locked up don’t mean i’m f*cked up in the game
just to think the motha dirt they trying to throw on my name
get arrested – getting arrested don’t make me guilty
but by the time i make it to court
the media dun’ killed me
gotta good heart but we all do wrong
i really mean well but i’m going too strong
you say i’m rehabilitated, but i still can’t vote
you say i paid my debt but i still can’t vote
gotta pay taxes but i still can’t vote
come on dawg ya’ll stay trying to keep a n*gg* broke
you just as crooked as us, f*ck you trying to say
cause once i pay that dough, the charges go away
forget about it – it’s ok!
cause i’m a walk over here and let the lord pave my way – aight

[morrison:] change the life
[choir:] that i
[morrison:] that i live
[choir:] got me
[morrison:] living five?
[choir:] living
[morrison:] manity?
[choir:] need you
[morrison:] need the thing
[echo:] thing
[choir:] that is
[morrison:] destroying me
[choir:] so i
[morrison:] pray to god
[choir:] that it
[morrison:] has mercy
