[Chorus] To all my people goin' through it on a daily basis And it seem like the world is full of cold places Keep yo' head up, f**k what they said cause you can do it and the man will get you through it I believe that, homey I believe that If I can picture that, I'll bring a picture back [Ice Cube] They say "Gangster, gangster! Tell me how you do it How you get through it and them other n***as blew it" I keep my eye on the prize then pursue it Chase it like a cheetah chuck it out and subdue it So self-educate, n***a don't hate Cause the game I got, is Madden oh-eight F**k with Cube, I'm better than YouTube F**k with them dudes them n***as is new school The game don't change just the players The rhymes don't change just the f**kin' rhyme-sayers They make it up as they go along But I'm goin' on 25 years strong The shit I say might get you through the day Or change your whole life, in a major way The shit they say, might catch you a case The shit I say, feel like your birthday [Chorus] [Ice Cube] You know what? Momma said it'd be days like this Straight hell on earth, but come up out the abyss She said "Don't let 'em see you crawl, don't let 'em see you fall All they wanna do is laugh when you tear your drawers" It's a cold world n***a bring a bomber jacket If it's another hustle out there I'ma crack it F**k the new dance I'ma learn how to eat Get my mind right, stay up out these f**kin streets They keep callin' me They keep callin', all the lil' homies keep fallin' In them same traps n***as can't figure out In the fast lane boy but the bridge is out Make my blood boil, get yo' life spoiled Get you in the system, get you in the soil And your funeral was sponsored by Unocal Saw you UVN, n***a digital [Chorus] I know, it's f**ked up how they do us Pretend they really care, but then they Jerry Lewis Take that money that was allocated to us Put us in some f**ked up trailers then sue us Watchin' Katrina, is worser than Ike and Tina See New Orleans get bitch-slapped by FEMA Louisiana got racist-ass politics Free the Jena Six (N***a free the Jena six!) Your honor, Osama, Obama Even, yo' momma, ain't f**kin' with my comments They want us to quit, forget And not give a shit about these sick-ass politics A lunatic is in the White House Make me wanna go do a lick right now But they'll make a n***a bow down in the penitentiary, a billion dollar industry [Chorus] I believe that, homey I believe that If I can picture that, I'll bring a picture back
