‘We jumped off the porch without thinking twice’

Story to the Government

We’re innocent

Until proven guilty

But really

It’s the other way around

Cops want a face

When that body hits the ground

Be careful what you say

There’s snitches all around

I’m not finish with you yet

So sit your ass down

I have a story to tell

We grew up without

A mother or a father

Which made life

A lot! more harder

Tried going to school

But wasn’t getting any smarter

So we jumped off the porch

Without thinking twice

Started carrying guns, selling drugs

And shooting dice

Who are you to judge us

Until you life our life

You don’t feel the pain

Under the scarred tissue

We call skin

You look at us like animals

But you don’t know

When, what or where

We’ve been through

You couldn’t be us

So focus on being you.
