Started From The Bottom

He walked thru the streets with no respect for authority

Starting from the bottom affected by poverty he thought about robbery,

He knew if caught the judge would come down heavily, so no fuck that

He thought, too much negativity, so on he strode trying to think logically.

Raised in the old Moss Side district  on a diet of mean plus restrictive

Every one he knew was getting into the drug business.

His initial belief was to go against this, he could see his community

Dropping into a precipice. Got a kid on the way and no job to get paid

Gotta do something people looking to me to do something

40 hour week on a minimum wage, Thatcherite ways, fuck the dumb ting.

He gonna go against his instinct jump on the latest craze

His clothes had seen better days, time to get paid, forgive me Lord.
