lyrics

[Verse 1]

Kid shoots up his school cause he's pissed,
And he copies all of this shit that he sees,
On TV with that whole screwed up box,
He's got instincts on killing, 17 people like the kid did,
In his own home with the video game but he missed,
Hit a girl barely turned 15, then he blows his own brains,
Man, tell me please,
How this controversy happens right now in front of me,
Unbelievable to really see,
Then they blame music, not the movies that they gon' see,
Or their parents who don't know their own kids,
And I'm sick to my core, bumping Tupac Shakur,
But never had violent tendencies,
To my own people man and it really seems,
Cowardly to be fair and discreet,
These kids are misguided, it's up to me,
Show em the positive shit you could be,
Without losing your life, with a gun and a fight,
Ending others causing disbelief,
And this grief man it gon' never end,
When you lost all your friends,
And you cant concentrate anymore man it really seems,
You drop out of school with the similar themes,
And the rest of the teens,
Who were popular in class,
Tryna be queens,
No longer cocky,
Nobody cares about your ass,
They scarred and they constantly scared,
And they don't know what they fuck they gon' do next,
Man I hate to tell you but they don't know what they gon' do next.

[Rap Hook x2]

Man all them troubled minds, we pray and pray for them troubled kids,
Troubled minds, we pray and pray for them troubled kids,
What did they do, what did they do?

[Singing Hook]

Lift your voice up, make it clearer,
God does hear your prayer's he is here.

[Verse 2]

Now comes to the part of it, when you getting bullied all day at school,
You get so mad that you run through, any motherfucken obstacle,
Knock anybody down that gon' touch you,
But it's a bit too late cause you bottled it up,
Inside the whole time, it's dangerous,
Music tryna inspire this change in us,
Wow and I'm sick of it,
Can't believe that I witness this,
Gotta stand up for yourself right at the start,
Nothing's gon' happen I promise that part,
Remain strong you just gotta build up your heart,
Cause the cruel world's really gon' knock you down,
Whichever chance it gon' get, and that's for anybody that don't make a sound,
The quite kids that don't do anything, man they innocent,
But they really receiving it the worst,
Hope my son understand that first,
Ready for that man cause it's gon' hurt,
That's just part of life, you gotta graze your knees a few times,
And get up, wipe your eyes,
And thank God that at least you really alive,
At least for another day,
Survive now damn with all the pain,
If I did it man you def can to,
I had my own doubts but I believe in you,
Fuck that cutting shit,
It's not right if you really wanna live a life legit,
I know things are troubling,
But I'd do anything just to really gon' see you quit.

[Rap Hook x2]

Man all them troubled minds, we pray and pray for them troubled kids,
Troubled minds, we pray and pray for them troubled kids,
What did they do, what did they do?

[Singing Hook]

Lift your voice up, make it clearer,
God does hear your prayer's he is here.
