Vinthoven's 1st Symphony (Freedom)

(Chorus)
Time to go home. Home.
Time to go home. Home.

(Verse 1)
I used to think a gangster was the thing to be.
I strangled beef throwing hands wasn't a thing to me.
But I did it for respect in retrospect it was all insane, to me.
But yet it's strange to me that even in the midst of beef
Death was not in range of me. Then it came to me.
One night in the studio God explained to me
A vision that was plain to see and made me free.
That I could change the streets
With the gifts he gave to me.
That's why I'm not ashamed to say the price that Jesus paid for me.
So now I just bring the heat. I wrangle strangle then mangle beats.
Hoping one day that the change in me, It could be the change in you.
And that you'll make it through your situation without playing the fool.
See what if we made it cool...
To get an education study hard and make good grades in school?
See that's the lesson man if yall jump on them lesson plans,
you start reppin man your minds your best weapon man
I graduated summa cum laude and that's a blessing man.
This is my confession man. See I used to be one of yall.
Not a dollar to my name just a little bit of change
But a nigga still tried to ball. Straight trip if you pull my card.
Tell me how you trying to be top dog when the only way to be top dog
Is to hold your head high to the sky and don't be scared to fall?
Don't be scared to walk when you can't see ahead cause it's too much fog.
Now I don't walk I just jog I don't stall I hop walls like they too small.
And I learned this for myself. Had to put the twelve gage back on the shelf.
Trying to be the king of beef is bad for your health.
Stop chasing after riches start chasing after wealth.

(Chorus)

(Verse 2)
We've all fallen short of his grace.
So it's safe to say I've made mistakes all along the way.
But I thank god for the errors of my yesterday.
He showed me a better way, so finally I can proudly say
That I'm the man you see today.
When weather grays and tomorrows filled with sorrow
I can keep my head to better days.
That's why I can't help but pray.
But it's hard to elevate, when your only motivation
Is the accumulation of better pay.
For this generation and nation I can't help but say,
"Damn! You really want your kids' kids' kids in the streets with Ks?"
"Killing your cousins kids' kids over kis of yay?"
It's people dying over what their favorite rapper say.
When their favorite records play,
Tell me who's gone ease the pain
When gangstas bustin where the children play make the grim reapers day?
A child in the way of AK sprays between rival gangs...
The good die young but tell me why does evil stay?

(Chorus)
(Chorus)
