Lay It Down Lyrics

No-one has the right just to take another's life
It can't just be me that sees things so obviously
Brother's dying, baby's crying, when's it gonna end
Can you tell me?

Lay it down, you know that you don't go that route yeah yeah
Lay it down, everybody should know that by now

I remember a time when fighting didn't mean a crime
it was just between men who settled problems with their hands
Now we've got something its worse it's bad it's out of control
You know it's got to go

Listen 8 years old he's got the barrel in his hand Turning it round wonder what this thing is wow
Its kinda heavy weighing in about the same as his arm
Found it behind the bed of his big brother Carl
now Carl was 19 and nah he weren't a dirty drug fiend or a pusher used to be a right left hooker
used to use his hand 'stead of metal when he took em used to until his bredrin got tooken
now Carl can't take two steps without lookin and he's lookin at 10 - 15 and he's shooken to the core mother said she's seen it all before
she seen football dreams gone uncle same as before woulda been 18 pushin a big whip now
but its two years since they laid the wreath on the ground now dreams are deferred and he's laying in the ground yo forget about the pow pow lay it down...
