I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change, I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. Let me tell you a story about a young brown man, growing up with a struggle always had problems at hand, but really, it's not just him, it's his community The absence of a father, affecting their opportunities, young kids growing up with thugs around their lives, thinking life's all about selling drugs and getting high. Giving them even before they know how to write. I had that problem in my life, but I'm just trying to make it right. I went from gutter to butter, from nothing to something. I did it all up on my own and didn't have to be hustling I follow the right road and now I think positive, because If I don't I know I would be doing the opposite. I think it's sad how young brothers want to kill each other fighting over the turf and dying for different colors. I'm going to wait for this world to change, If we unite then we can all live the better days. It's one love. I'm trying to make a change, I'm trying to live my life I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change, I'm trying to live my life I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. Life is rough, sometimes I want to quit, put a gun to my head, pull the trigger, let the blood drip. Got teachers saying that I can't amount to nothing, because I'm lazy, and I'm dumb, and I'm always up to something. Had to learn the hard way, went to jail a few times. Music was my favorite drug, so I wrote a few lines. Now I'm on the right road, I show it in my rhymes armed with a microphone, I am changing with the times. I came up fatherless, that ain't going to hold me back. Got myself in college, now I'm on the right track. Living for tomorrow, my future's looking bright, see? Got to make it right, got kids looking up to me. War overseas, war on the streets, got kids on the block selling drugs just to eat. No we can't do it alone, we all must unite. We got to make a change. We got to make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. At times I feel like screaming, because my life is being tugged, get a cold shudder every time I look at schools and books. Freshman year was bad, being a sophomore was worse, couldn't deal with being kicked out so I fought and cursed. Young rebel in a cold world, weak and alone, searching through his environment, trying to find his way home. I found myself in new trouble every time I turned around. Got arrested a few times, even caught some beat downs. Sent to county for six months, I was missing my fam. Said it was the best for me, so I gave it a chance. Came out a new man, sworn to never fall again, supported by my family, teachers and all my loving friends. Who says there is no second chances in this life we live, just need a little help and all the love that you can give. And now I'm helping the struggle, making them see the light and any opportunity. I swear I'm gonna make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, lets make it right. I'm trying to make change, I'm trying to live my life I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right. I'm trying to make a change. I'm trying to live my life. I'm tired of living this lifestyle, let's make it right.
