Lyrics

I push back
And I'm driftin'
Driftin' high
See up here
Oh up here
I can see
Where I'm from
To where I'm from down there

See where I'm from
Railroad moss serve as the buffer
Between those who have it
And those who have it tougher
Now see, if you can muster
This image of lacklustre
That we all need to polish
With slaveries not abolished
As we got children who we still deny college
Now tell me how we gon' deny
The youth the higher knowledge when
We're not givin' them no
Role models to follow
The beats are all bangin'
But the words are all hollow

It's a problem houston (hey, hey)
I think we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I said we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I think we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
Cause what I see
Is what I see
And that's just crime and poverty
Said what I see
Is what I see
The plight of the youth is botherin' me

See where I'm from
Politicians are too busy actin' political
To recognise the situation that we're in is critical
And it's a wonder how we keep from goin' under
Poppin' shots like thunder
And they all tryna one[?] ya
Crooked cops got your number
And they claimin you[?] the gun
And cause you're lookin' like a target
You're frontin' like a stun[?]
Back in the place where there's no
Role models left to follow
Cause the beats are all bangin'
But the words are all hollow

It's a problem houston (hey, hey)
I think we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I said we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I think we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
Cause what I see
Is what I see
And that's just crime and poverty
Said what I see
Is what I see
The plight of the youth is botherin' me

I said we got some problems
Yeah, we got a couple problems
We better find a way to solve 'em
Think we got a problem houston
Yeah, we got a couple problems
We better find a way to solve 'em

We got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I think we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I said we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
I think we got a problem houston (hey, hey)
Cause what I see
Is what I see
And that's just crime and poverty
Said what I see
Is what I see
The plight of the youth is botherin' me
