Lyrics

War On Theez Streetz

Written By: Brother Lew Acosta

There's a War on Theez Streetz Lives In Defeat, Cheat Kill Destroy the enemies on the beat . So how do you feel in the Battle Field Without a last meal, find the real deal. What ever the burden was hurtin inside of me God did a surgery brought it too it's knees,from misery to mystery transformed me from principality so I could be free. consistant conflict makes the world go round, but you go for the fun stay conveniently bound, livin in the past looking for a badge, too close to the stash how long will it last some of ya'll are hosting beats, Roasting Peeps smoke weed and eats and bound by the streetz, some rip the culture like a fiend, a drama queen, following trends from a magazine destroying teens, I'm from the NYC but don't be amazed, my first bid was Spofford back in the day, from 12 to 16 then to Rikers I, from gangster to dopefiend and barely alive, so how you gonna act when your homey gets strapped ripping like a stick-up kid and get wacked. a conflict resolution is one solution another revelation, try salvation.

There's a War on Theez Streetz Lives In Defeat, Cheat Kill Destroy the enemies on the beat . So how do you feel in the Battle Field Without a last meal, find the real deal. What ever the burden was hurtin inside of me God did a surgery brought it to it's knees,from misery to mystery transformed me from principality so I could be free.

When the enemy comes into your life he's so dramatic, cause with the panic he brings you all the static, it's automatic. complicated lifestyle is getting tragic like a rabbit he pulls out a hat
