GemStones – Dying Breed Lyrics

SHARE
[Intro] I had a dream that one day
The guys in my generation will not be afraid to be themselves
But walk in the divine purpose that God has set for their lives
We gon’ be aight
I had a dream that one day
The girls of my generation will have more self love
Respect themselves more
And walk in the divine purpose that God has set for their lives
We gon’ be ok

[Verse 1] Track jackets, dreads, true religion jeans and a weeded smell
Everybody dressed alike deep as hell
Unprepared for life, could barely read or spell
Shawties walking ’round scared to be themselves
No one out there serving in the streets prevail
Six feet below the ground or either jail
Rappers that they follow after feed ’em tales
Another generation’s been set up to fail

[Hook] If I can just make it through the night
Trying to find the life
It’s hard for me to say if I’ll ever touch the sky
Cause I’m so afraid to try
Dreams to break away, I know someday I’ll fly
If the streets don’t take my life

[Verse 2] Tracks in they heads, blue extensions leap through they feet and nails
In and out of smoke sessions chief and Ls
Skirts lifted just enough to see they tails
Everybody walking down the street denailed
Granny raised the seed they’ve barely even held
Attracting STDs more than they do males
Lack of self-esteem because of deep betrayal
Another generation’s been set up to fail

[Hook 2] Granny always said just pray through the night
That my beauty’s deep inside
It’s hard for me to try and spread my wings and fly
Cause my self esteem has died
I’ve only thrown away what used to be my life
If you can hear my cry

[Verse 3] Freedom bells, will never ring
Mislead by what our leaders tell
Speeches filled with information that could bleach you pale
But won’t disclose it, please expose it I need more details
The money’s tall, but everything should fall that comes from greed
Philosophies of prophecies or that of Socrates
The honeys dance for money bands that come at running speed
The stunning fans are thrilled as bills fill up the floor with cheese
A mother overly protects us saves us from the fall
Tried they best to lock the doors but couldn’t save us all
If praying hands could heal a man and bring him back to life
And its done in Jesus’ name then how can you deny the Christ?
This life is real, my pints are filled with tools that break through stones
Send violent chills to watch your bones when you embrace my songs
I hope and pray there’ll come a day while walking on this trail
The God of faith will shine his grace and save us from ourselves Sometimes I close my eyes and hope to God that we excel
Before we die, the water’s running dry inside the wells
The public schools that I attended should’ve bend and burned
The teachers said they still get paid if I don’t ever learn
Our neighborhoods have been the destroyed, the murder rates is huge
They pick and choose and half the deaths will never make the news
The shawties fill the pipes cause they think that that’s how rappers live
I toured the planet twice and that ain’t how these rappers live
The old say that the young has no respect for not a soul
The young say that the old cannot connect because they old
The women say the man’s equivalence is of a dog
The men say never trust a woman, they’ll betray a frog
Lightskins say that dark is less because they not as fine
Darkskins say that lightskins just as filthy as the swine
The rich say they despise the poor cause they should get they own The poor say they despise the rich just because they own
The saints say the sinners fold be caught up in the clouds
The sinners say the saints all think they holier-than-thou
The church say that the streets should live for Christ, forgive and quit
The streets say that the church are filled with nothing but hypocrites!
