Plies - 2nd Chance Lyrics

I went 2 see my nigga, he doin 17
one of da realist niggas I done ever seen
got caught with a bird, but his record was clean
coming back from Dade, all he gave him was speed
he a real soldier, but his partner was greed
get out when he 40 went in at 23
how 17 years worth one key
some shit cost 20 grand can get you over 10 a piece
he aint wanna hurt nobody he was just tryna eat
he had a real job went to work 4 days a week
said this his last trip and he was gettin out da streets
he a good nigga, a second chance is all he need

x2
some niggas make mistakes of fucked up circumstance
now they life gone, prolly gon die in the pen
they done gave up on life and put it in God's hands
I thought this was a miracle what happened to a second chance

wish I had one chance to sentence the judge kids
and watch them beg for they life like my niggas did
give them a life sentence, some shit that wasnt big
before they get granted they appeal and gotta do 10
shoe gotta be on the other foot for you to understand
the scariest shit in the world is be a black man
what my future hold, wish I knew in advance
I approach life everyday just hopin I win
alot of us already lost, we sittin in the pen
this shit is crazy cuz God even forgives sin
but when it come to the system that shit dont bend
I guess it do dependin on the color of your skin

x2
some niggas make mistakes of fucked up circumstance
now they life gone, prolly gon die in the pen
they done gave up on life and put it in God's hands
I thought this was a miracle what happened to a second chance


I thought it was understood, nobody was perfect
so how can 1 mistake make yo life worthless
God made us all put us here to serve a purpose
yo life in 12 strangers hands n cum back with a verdict
but is dat really fair what if they all was dirty
you mess up 1 time n they come back with 30
wat if u ain't got money yo whole family hurtin
then u ain't got a choice you gotta cop out early
but if u was rich u wouldn't of dat 30
but wat if the judge racist, nobody to overturn it
the system fucked up because It ain't sturdy
welcome to America home to da controversy

x2
some niggas make mistakes of fucked up circumstance
now they life gone, prolly gon die in the pen
they done gave up on life and put it in God's hands
I thought this was a miracle what happened to a second chance
