Artist: 2Pac
Song Title: Thats The Way Is Is
oooohhhhh yeah
c'mon c'mon

I see no changes
Wake up in the mornin and i ask myself
Is life worth living should i blast myself
Im tired of being poor
And even worse im black
My stomach hurts
So im lookin for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn about a negro
Pull a trigger kill a nigger hes a hero
Givin crack to the kids who the hell cares
One less hungry mouth on the welfare
First ship em dope and let em deal to brothers
Give em guns step back and watch em kill each other
Its time to fight back thats what Huey said
Two shots in the dark now Hueys dead
I got love for my brother
But we can never go nowhere
Unless we share with each other
We gotta start makin changes,
Learn to see me as your brother
In steada two distant strangers.
And thats how its spose to be
How can the devil take a brother if hes close to me?
Id love to go back to when we played as kids
But things change, thats the way it is.
c'mon c'mon

Chorus:

Thats just the way it is....
Things 'ill never be the same....
Thats just the way it is
Aaawwww yeah (hear me)
Ohhh no ohh na
Thats just the way it is
Things 'ill never be the same
Never be the sayame (aaww yeah)
Thats just the way it is (way it is)
Awww yeah
c'mon c'mon

I see no changes
All i see is racist faces
Misplaced hate makes disgrace for races
We under, i wonder what it takes to make this
A more better place lets see race dont waste it.
Take the evil out the people that be actin right
Cuz no black and white, are smokin crack tonight.
And the only time we chill is when we kill each other
It takes skill to be real time to heal each other
And i know it seems heaven sent
We aint right to see a black president
It aint a secret of the sealed effect,
The penitituries packed and its filled with blacks.
But some things will never change
Try to show another way, but your stayin in the dope game
Now tell me whats a mother to do
Bein real dont appeal to the brother in you
You gotta operate the easy way
I mage a G today
But you made it in a sleezy way
Sellin crack to the kids
I gotta get paid, well hey, well thats the way it is

Chorus:

c'mon c'mon
Thats just the way it is...
Things 'ill never be the same
Thats just the way it is
Awww yeah
Thats just the way it is
Things will never be the same
Never be the sayame aww yeah
Thats just the way it is (way it is)
Awww yeah

You gotta make a change
Its time for us as a people to start makin some changes
Lets change the way we eat, lets change the way we live
And lets change the way we treat each otha'
You see the old way wasnt workin so
On us to do what we gotta do...to survive.

And still i see no changes
Cant a brother get a little peace?
Theres war on the streets, and a war in the middle east.
Steada war on poverty, they gotta war on drugs
So the police can bother me.
And i aint never did a crime i didnt have to do
But now im back in the locks givin it back to you
Dont let em jack you up, back you up, crack you up
And pimp smack you up.
You gotta learn to hold your own,
They get jealous when they see you with your mobile phone.
But tell the cops cant touch this, i dont trust this
When they try da rush, i bust this
At the sound of my two, you say it aint cool,
But mamma dint raise no fool.
And as long as i stay black, i gotta stay strapped
And i never get to lay back
Cuz i alwayz got to worry bout the payback.
So buffed in a roughed up way but,
Comin back after all these years
Rat tat tat tat tat
Thats the way it is.

Chorus:
Thats just the way it is (yeah yeah yeah)
Things will never be the same
Thats just the way it is (way it is)
Aww yeah oh my
Your my brother your my sista!
Thats just the way it is
Things will never be the same
Yo my brother yo my sista
Thats just the way it is
Awww yeah
Some things will never change!
