I watched a baby's soul pass through the concrete

mothers bruise knees beggin fo da Lord's redemption

aunties walin at a sky nobody gonna drop from

don't them balloons deflate too soon?

ain't nobody comin to save us


Mr. Ghetto ain't you tired?

Mr. Ghetto don't cha take no breaks?

Mr. Ghetto don't cha have no leisure?


I watched a man-child dance in a purgatory

fathers beat walls  yearnin for second chances

uncles tip 40oz bottles of heroine in mother earth

don't teddy bears make you nauseous?

ain't nobody comin to save us 


Mr. Ghetto you generations turnin in them graves?

Mr. Ghetto ain't it prayer you said would deliva me?

Mr. Ghetto who built you?
