man: so what you gonna when you get outta here, cat daddy?
scarface: i don’t know dawg… just trying to live it one day at a time, you know?
man: i hear you talkin’ man, live it one day at a time… ain’t nothin’ but a thing though, bro.
scarface: yeah i hear you fool. well let me get up outta here, man, my ride out here waitin’ fo’ me
man: aight cat, take it easy baby.
scarface: stay up fool… peace.

verse 1:

he greets his father with his hands out, rehabilitated slightly,
glad to be the man’s child
the world is different since he’s seen it last…
out of jail—been seven years—and he’s happy that he’s free at last
all he had was his mother’s letters
now he’s home and he’s gotta make a change and make it for the better
but he’s black, so he’s got one strike against him
and he’s young, plus he came up in the system
but he’s smart, and he’s finally makin’ eighteen
and his goal’s to get on top and try to stay clean
so he’s callin’ up his homie who done came up
livin’ like this now they dealin’ with the same stuff
and had that att-tude that who he was was worth it
and with that f-cked up att-tude he killed his first man
now it’s different, he done did dirt
and realized, killin’ men meant comin’ up, but it still hurt
and can’t n-body change this
it’s nineteen-ninety-fo’, and we up against the same sh-t
i never understood why
i could never see a man cry, ’til i seen a man die

-instrumental chorus-

verse two:

imagine life, at it’s full peak
then imagine, lying dead, in the arms of your enemy
imagine peace, on this earth, when there’s no grief
imagine grief, on this earth, when there’s no peace
everybody’s got a different way of endin’ it
and when your number comes for service then they send it in
now your time has arrived for your final test
i see the fear in your eyes and hear your final breath
how much longer will it be ’til it’s all done?
total darkness and ease be in all one
i watch him die and when he dies, let us celebrate
you took his life, but your memory he’ll never take
you’ll be headed to another place
and the life you used to live will reflect in your mother’s face
i still gotta wonder why
i never seen a man cry, ’til i seen a man die


verse 3:

i hear you breathin’, but your heart no longer sounds strong
but you kinda scared of dying, so you hold on
and you keep on blackin’ out, and your pulse is low
stop trying to fight the reaper, just relax and let it go
because there’s no way you can fight it, but you’ll still try
and you can try it ’til you fight it, but you’ll still die
now your spirit leaves your body and your mind clears
the rigormortis starts to set, now you outta here
you start your journey into outer sp-ce
you see yourself, in the light, but you’re still feelin’ outta place
so you standin’ in the tunnel of eternal light,
and you see the ones you never learned to love in life
make the choice, let it go, but you can back it up
if you ain’t at peace with god you need to patch it up
but if you ready close your eyes and we can set it free
there lies a man not scared to die, may he rest in peace
i still gotta wonder why,
i never seen a man cry ’til i seen that man die
