This generation


Bang Bang
Gun shot noises heard from blocks away 

Somebody just got shot ! 

Damn it makes you wonder if you’re next or not 

YO the violence needs to stop 
Because all it’s leading to is the cops 

But the cops don’t do nothing 
But get paid

We drinking water and they sipping lemonade
Teens having mad babies .
It’s like babies having babies 
Damn yo this shit is really crazy .

Young men rather hang on corners 
And smoke trees than 
To be in school receiving degrees
I’m getting tired of seeing all these 
Statistics about a black man . 
We shouldn’t just be settling we should be taking a stand .
