Song Lyrics

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize there's not much left
'Coz I've been blastin' and laughin' so long that
Even my mama thinks that my mind is gone
But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
Me be treated like a punk you know that's unheard of
You better watch how you're talkin' and where you're walkin'
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
I really hate to trip but I gotta loc
As I grow I see myself in the pistol smoke fool
I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like
On my knees in the night sayin' prayers in the streetlight

Been spendin' most their lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Been spendin' most their lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise

They got the situation they got me facin'
I can't live a normal life I was raised by the stripes
So I gotta be down with the hood team
Too much television watchin' got me chasin' dreams
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
Got my 10 in my hand and a gleam in my eye
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger fool
Death ain't nothin' but a heartbeat away
I'm livin' life do or die what can I say
I'm twenty-three now but will I live to see twenty-four
The way things are going I don't know

Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the one's we hurt are you and me

Been spendin' most their lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Been spendin' most their lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise

Power and the money money and the power
Minute after minute hour after hour
Everybody's runnin' but half of them ain't lookin'
What's going on in the kitchen but I don't know what's cookin'
They say I gotta learn but nobody's here to teach me
If they can't understand it how can they reach me
I guess they can't I guess they won't
I guess they front that's why I know my life is out of luck fool

Been spendin' most their lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Been spendin' most their lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise

Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the one's we hurt are you and me
Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the one's we hurt are you and me
