These Walls (Explicit) (Dirty MC Edit) - Nappy Roots

Well, well, well, well

 

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin, hmm

 

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin, hmm

As darkness approaches and

 

I'm fumblin' through the blunt roaches

It's lookin' hopeless, totally unfocused,

 

stumblin' onto the front porch

Posted with my closest associates,

we were so broke

Though a couple of us had sold dope,

still humble enough to be po' folk

We comin' up to be grown folk,

ain't dumb enough to be slow poke

Know the hours of death they grow close

So we give our lives to the utmost

Plus, here's a extra point,

visualize the goal post

No, we not eatin' duck roast

but we live our lives to the utmost

'Cause those pressure points

are the corners that we cut close

Turn most civilized yeagas to cut throats

And it's these men they send

up state by truck load

And herd 'em in to the pen' like

buffalos, I'm sayin'

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin, hmm

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin, hmm

 

The game was sold, not told to me

Heartache won't let go of me

Games say that I'll live and lie

But I'll try

 

Every which-a-way tell you the angles,

I done tossed and turned

And hit and missed, pissed 'cause

of that didn't amount to this

Gettin' it ain't got a damn thing

to do with keepin' shit

Workin' damn hard to get it,

plans of not partin' with it

Life got a way of showin' you shit,

you can't bear to see

Tough keepin' float, settin' sail

through a sea of G's

Somethin' should happen on this night,

I lay me down to sleep

Wasn't happy with my friend,

pray the Lord my soul to keep

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin, hmm

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin, hmm

I'm 'bout 3000 miles from

Graceland 'bout a county from Macon

But you would think I'm arm reach from Satan

I got a strange way of tellin' the truth

Most felons do stuff between

hearin' your story and tellin' it too

Stuck between numb and feelin' it

I'm right between calm and

militant on the search for deliverance

I'm three days from beatin'

my case at the arraignment

This shit's basic, get to jail, get the statement

Part with the heart of a soldier

Right now I'm stuck behind

bars but daddy told ya

I chose to march with Martin carryin' posters

They lock me down but they

usually hang us folks up

It's so tough, white man tryin' to control us

And mold us, assimilate our cultures,

they doped us

Hell naw, I'm stayin' focused,

I won't corrupt with evil

 

I'm forever fightin' for my people, for equal

 

Fight for your rights

These walls are closin' in,

 

how long am I supposed to grin?

 

I've lost my will to win, forgive my sin

Ladies and gentlemen

I have some very sad news for all of you

 

Could you lower those signs please?

 

Martin Luther King was shot

and was killed tonight
