Falling In Reverse - Gangsta's Paradise Lyrics

Gangsta's Paradise

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left.
Cause I've been laughing and blasting 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, yeah, you know that's unheard of.
You better watch how you're talking and where you're walking,
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk.

I really hate to trip but I gotta loc,
As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke.
I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like,
On my knees in the night saying prayers in the streetlight.

[Chorus]
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise,
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise,
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.

Look at the situation, they got me facin',
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the streets.
So I gotta be down with the hood team,
Too many television watching got me chasing dreams.

I'm an educated fool with money on my mind,
I got a tin in my hand and a gleam in my eye.
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger,
And my homies are down, don't arouse my anger.

Death ain't nothing but a heartbeat away,
I'm living life, do or die, what can I say?
I'm 23 now, but will I live to see 24?
The way things are going, I don't know!

So tell me why are we so fucking blind to see,
The ones we hurt are you and me?

[Chorus]
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise,
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise,
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.

Power and the money, money and the power,
Minute after minute, hour after hour.
Everybody's running, but half of them ain't looking,
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.

(Oh.....yeah)

Ha ha, fuck everyone!

What up?
Shout out to Epitaph,
Shout out to Fearless Records,
Punk Goes 90's, oh.
Shout out to all the bands in the record.
Falling In Reverse, 2014 and beyond,
Gangsta's Paradise, baby.

[Chorus]
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise,
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise,
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.
