Teenage Error

When we were little all we can see on tv was B.E.T. and the news showing our future HIS-story.
Direct at us for the better profit of their bank accounts and using our drama now on Maury.
Ice Cube's lyrics were probably misunderstood,
"They give us guns and drugs, then come around here and *ahem* with us".
We shouldn't fall into this vortex of folly and sin
Because we would fall into the White Man's Plan.

Teenage pregnancies before the age of 17,
the body count is tallying up before 19.
So much drama before we get out of college,
GANGS, sex, drugs, and abuse is what seems to be our knowledge.

All for the hood, back then you knew i would.
Run around town with the boys, you knew i could.
But then i would get in trouble,
But dam she makes it hard for a sucker to breathe.
Pounding and pounding with this sensation of guilty heat.
Making me go back to the hood.
All for the hood has got me hooked.
I wasnt insane to smoke that refa,
But with that 40 oz. i might've kicked it with ya.
On that corner with the police rolling by,
Now got me thing police brutality by mind.
"Pop, Pop, Pop," is what im hearing at night,
Now got me thinking, "Why it got to be tonght?"
Now im getting strapped up with the burner behind sight,
Now in the mentality to take a sucka's life
Walking out into the cold
Compeleting the transaction for my life sold
To "All My Hood Incorporated"
"Give us your life and recieve eternal Damnation"
All for the hood,
Dam i was a fool,
A fool about to lose this game called life,
The currency im playing with is years to my life...

S.T.D.s on the rise in the black nation.
Origins unkown but it has a killer nature.
However, our real problem is us, teens.
We give it up for that four letter word it seems.
But which is it Love or Lust?
Either way its confused with trust.
Boy or girl, we have no set loyalties,
One day with her and next week its another girl.
Girls using guys, it seems emotional manipulation is not a lie.
H.I.V. is what most of us got,
When are we gunna stop.
We bring unready babies alive to this world
But there is a few who kill them while there head are swirled.
Guys telling girls, "If you love me you would go through abortion."
LIER, if you loved her you would've never spreaded her legs open.
Girls telling guys, "If you love me you would have sex with me."
BAD CHICK ALERT, She could've have told that to every guy with the letter T.
How bout we take it slow,
And get to know that one.
That way less diesaes and you can plan on a daughter or son.

Purple kush,fire, or should i try some pills today.
This is what is on our minds today.
Not even realizing we are falling into the White Man's plan.
Failing math tests but knowing exact proportions to cut a dime
Not listening to our parents but able to listen to the 5-0 sign.
Able to stand up to our parents but not able to stand up to peer pressure, you see.
This teenage era is coming to and end,
"Where will you be in five years?"
Jail, prison, or six-feet under?
These are your choices if you contine down your"new found wonder"
Down the rabbit hole you go till you see the error in your ways,
Wave good-bye to the succes, oppertunity, mom, dad,
and eventual you true happy life goes the other way.

There is one main reason why our era is the epitome of depression.
It takes place in the house-hold of daily lesson.
Parents tell us to stop being bad,
Well maybe if you stop verbally, mentally, and physically beating us
We might not look in our neighborhoods for families,
Or look for other girls or guys for love,
And not use drugs to hide the pain for the scars you left on us permanetly.
If you took an intrest in my studies,
maybe i would stop fighting and cussing.
If you actually came to my activities,
I wont look into my neighborhood gang activity.
If you actually cared about my well being,
I wont ask for a hit of that weed and a quickie.

But in the end,
Someone will stop the repitition for our sins
