Chicago Life is Crazy
Life is Crazy
I think about my life and what I've experienced, it's been crazy
My mind takes me back to the days when I was lazy
Running the streets of Chicago, where the thugs act sly
Like birds in the heavens you could see the slugs fly by
Tears fall down like rain when a mother cries
Is it over a happy moment?
No, it's a homicide maybe even a suicide!
Life or death the victim usually does not get to decide
No honor, you get shot from the back by surprise
Now what made you popular leads to your demise
The streets equal sin and death is the final price
Baby momma's get on your nerves like bad head lice
If another man disrespects her, you defend her with hot pipes
Some young women what you to be a thug and still act nice
They would like for you to be educated and still roll dice
They want you to look like Usher, and still behave like Plies
Life is crazy!
I went from growing up in a God fearing home
To embracing life in a chaotic war zone
I remember growing up with a family but still feeling alone
It started with my dad who came from a big family and by the time he was 7 his mother was gone
His dad had to work three jobs just to feed the family, so he grew up alone
The streets of Chicago took him in, so when I came about I became his clone
He did not want this for me and yet I still made the streets my own
I tried hard to establish my own imaginary throne
To deal with my conscience I liked to stay blown
When it came to taking action, I drank forty ounces until I became numb
Living a life full of sin, I should've been dead and gone.
Life is crazy!
I went from hanging on corners
To talking about faith that can transplant boulders
I went from playing with guns
To praising Jehovah and his Son
I went from making enemies
To making peace with those who have hostilities
My life was a dead end, but now it's full of possibilities
I went from hunting women like game
To reserving my love for one flame
I went from living in constant rain
To experiencing sunshine again
And I'm not even rich....life is crazy!
