On the Inside Looking Out

by Doc Williams



There are many things I could tell you about because 
I am on the Inside Looking out
these things I see in every day life
they bring about the troubles and strife
of our people
who fight to stay alive
while you sit at your desk job from 9 to 5
you make promises you never intend to keep
with in our reach or should I say reach-less
peep this itís wild out there
my sprit looked in disbelief
I felt so much pain and grief
stricken as with some awful disease
 the people on the outside I can not believe
nigga please!
You don't even know the half
I laugh at your ignorance
or rather ignore
ants on the path way
to do his way is the key 
to the gates of Heaven
not robbin' a 7-11
pop-pop was the sound you heard from the gun
and now your ass is on the run
and for what a gun? And you didnít know what to do
and now you lookiní at life times 2
many years have gone by now 
and you can't even go down
to see your grandma who just died
because you were too foolish 
you just should have tried
to look at things from all aspects
you can't go around killin'
people 
like insects 
in general population were all your hommies roam
now you have to wait just to use the phone
there are many things I could tell you about
because I am on the Inside Looking Out
those things I did in every day life 
landed me here 
because I was too trife
