INTRO: Walking down Mr. Big wearing that fishing cap
Concealed weapons laughing at heart attacks
Always getting wasted writing crud on the walls
Gang violence mentality take it into Youth Hall
I had words for you I had ears for you
I had time for you patience for you
I had hope for you I had dreams for you
I had smiles for you I had love for you
But now all that’s left is the love
And I’ll keep praying to God above
It can still come out alright
Why do you do the things you do
Who blew it your mom or you
Now there’s a price
Friends worried and concerned for you
Wanting no more trouble for you
Now the county’s coming to take you
Showed you Jesus and faith
Did you take it and throw it away
Prayers for you
I will dream for you I will smile for you
I will wait for you I will think of you
I will visit you I will talk to you
I will listen to you I will pray for you
Hope this first time is the last
Hope it soon will be passed
I hope you survive
That time you prayed to be saved
Hope it was real wasn’t faked
I hope you stay alive
