Ghetto Dreams

Album: Based On A T.R.U. Story (2012)
  • My ghetto dreams always turn to ghetto nightmares

    At night I can't sleep, I toss and turn
    Candlesticks in the dark, I was whippin' the hard
    I was gettin' the broads that like "who the hell is that"
    I was dealing sacks, you looking at niggas that drove to hell and back.
    Charismatic I was raised by a addict with money in the attic.
    Got goons while you at it at
    This present time I'm out of my mind and that's a habit,
    Still got them waiting in line they gotta have

    Last night was the first night I got sleep
    Tossing and turning for two or three weeks
    My nightmares are triggered by bad memories
    Lord, send me an angel right now while I'm having ghetto dreams

    Cold sweats listenin' to the old sweat
    One, two that's a ho check
    Now for real, nigga this a whole check
    Just bossin' around, polo sweats
    Used to dream 'bout a bigger couch
    Woke up in a bigger house, come on
    Commas in my bank account
    So much money I had to let the banker count

    Last night was the first night I got sleep
    Tossing and turning for two or three weeks
    My nightmares are triggered by bad memories
    Lord, send me an angel right now while I'm having ghetto dreams

    It's like the world stand still
    Yesterday your little man got killed
    And all he ever wanted was a bank roll
    But he died too young 'cause the game's cold
    Most niggas ain't know, or they just think slow
    Once you get in you gotta leave but you can't though
    Does freedom make a motherfucker evil
    To the point down your ass when he see you
    Let's take that needle, fill it with poison
    Inject the ghetto with the drug, paranoia
    Got you lookin' at your homeboy sideways
    Ain't no honor among thieves is there nowadays
    They tell me crime pays, but I don't think so
    Because every criminal I know is in the clink, yo
    A nigga in the game right now
    Must be working for them people cause that shit played out

    I lay awake in my four corner room with the candles Writer/s: WILLIAM C. GUICE, ISAAC HAYES, CARLOS DARONDE BROADY, TAUHEED EPPS, BRAD JORDAN, KEN LEWIS, JOHN ROGER STEPHENS, JAMES WALKER, DOUG KING, WILLIE DENNIS
