We're Still Here

The ones, they never talk about 

We're still here

The ones posted on the coners 

We're still here 

The youth blinded by the guns,women, and drugs

They're still there

The ones who THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO GUIDE 

We're still here 

Lost in a land covered, In shadows 

friends disappear

lost in a Land full of

DOG FIGHTS 

CANT LEAVE IN FEAR

Is it him or is it me 

Im still here

Tell em it's us 

and 

Its we 

CAUSE 

WE'RE STILL HERE 

Some will HATE 

Some will LOVE 

But,Ill still CARE

They the PEOPLE

Them the CHILDREN

Them the FUTURE

They the PRESENT 

WHO STILL CARES 

Not the President

Not the Mayor 

Not the Press 

The stress is REAL

The ones on the block 

We're still here 

The ones who will never stop 

We're still here 

Getting cash to get the bag 

We're still here 

Cause they need the rent 

My kids need a place 

and 

I still care 

Cause I LOVE 

AND I CARE 

AND THEY'RE

STILL HERE
