Serious times




These are some serious times
All I can see around us is just violence and crime
Full time for us to centralize, socialize and realize
So let the sun shine throughout everyday
Let the moon shine through the peaceful night
This Seven times rise and seven times fall
But I don't really believe in those falling things at all
Coz life continues as it goes
If you really want to know the truth
The truth is in being told

Sometimes I think it's peace and safety
It could be you for sudden destruction
See you wake up this morning, you better give thanks
You don't know if you're going to live to see tomorrow
Life is much more precious than gold
Yeah, and if the truth hasn't been told

So I say that these are some serious times
All I can see around us is just violence and crime
Full time for us to centralize, socialize and realize

See at the corner, watch how you hang out at the corner
A straight-time pharmacy going on at the corner
At the corner, the youths them really no hold no water
Astray them go stray and left the border
Coz a domino say them gone, now they can play
And a car come in and shots start to spray
Only innocent life can get taken away
