PLIES lyrics : "2nd Chance"

[Verse 1]
I went to see my ^!$$%, he doin' seventeen
One of the realist ^!$$%s, I done ever seen

Got caught wit' a bird, but his record was clean
Comin' back from Dade, on da Gator wit' speed
He a real soldier, but his partner was greed

Get out when he fourty, went in at twenty-three
How seventeen years worth one key
Some %#@! cost twenty-grand can get you over ten piece

He ain't wanna hurt nobody, he was just tryna eat
He had a real job, went to work four days a week
Said this his last trip, and he was gettin' out the streets

He a good ^!$$%, second chance all he need

[Hook 2x]

Some ^!$$%s make mistakes, off $#[email protected] up circumstance
Now they life gone, probably gon' die in the pen
They done gave up on life and put it in God's hands

I thought this was America, what happened to a second chance

[Verse 2]

Wish I had one chance, to sentence the Judge kids
And watch 'em beg for they life like my ^!$$%s did
Give them a life sentence fo' some %#@! that wasn't big

'Fore they get granted they appeal they gotta do ten
Shoe gotta be on the otha foot for you to understand
The scariest %#@! in the world to be a black man

What my future holds, wish I knew in advance
I approach life everyday just hopin' I win
A lot us already lost, we sittin' in the pen

This %#@! crazy 'cause God, he forgive sin
But when it come to the system that %#@! don't bend
I guess it do, dependin' on the color of yo' skin


[Hook 2x]

[Verse 3]
I thought it was understood, nobody was perfect

So, how can one mistake make yo' life worthless
God made us all, put us here to serve a purpose
Yo life in twelve strangers hands to come back with a verdict

But is that really fair, what if they all was dirty
You mess up one time, and they come back with thirty
But if you ain't got money, yo whole family hurtin'

Then you ain't got a choice, you gotta cop out early
But if you was rich, you wouldn'ta got them thirty
What if the Judge racist, nobody'd overturn it

The system $#[email protected] up, because it ain't sturdy
Welcome to America, home of the controversy
