Getting By
by Derek Minor, Trip Lee

Album: PSA Volume 3
by Derek Minor, Trip Lee


Derek Minor: They tell us that we savages cause where them hard knock classes is, dudes'll leave you in bandages. Its only one rule where the cashless live, survive or reside where them caskets is. Yeah they roll they problems in Swishas and blow em in the sky, born in hell but hoping they can get high and rise, tired of steppin over crack fiends, rather deal it than smoke it, he got crack dreams. They broke and drug dealin is his only hope and aint no doctors and lawyers livin that way, posting. When he see doctors and lawyers its only liquor pouring on the curb cause homie got his head exploded. And as I sit on this stage and the drummer play the symbols and thangs, somebody round the corner on a mission tryna get em some change, hopin he can pay for a change.

I wish that things were really different, and we were really living. It must be something missing. Cause yesterday it felt that this cant be life. Today it seem we only getting by.

Derek Minor: See I remember when Me and Tommy was barreling down a country road. He smoking strong, im comin up with the sickest flows. At least to me they was. Im like "you feel that, cuz?" he blow the smoke in my face so I can get a buzz. Fast forward im rappin so I can get a buzz, think if you knew who I was that would replace the love that was gone cause I rarely had a dad at home and when I did it was different cause I wasn't his own. I bet you wanna be a rock star. Mix the white with the soda it get rock hard. But remember while you tryna hit your quota theres a kid at home losing his parents to buy your new car. And as I sit on this stage and the drummer play the symbols and thangs, somebody round the corner on a mission tryna get em some change, hopin he can pay for a change.

I wish that things were really different, and we were really living. It must be something missing. Cause yesterday it felt that this cant be life.
Today it seem we only getting by.

Trip Lee: Yes sir, I remember as a young buck all I wanted out of life was dumb luck, enough money that I could fill up a dump truck, and a whip that I could swang like numchucks. But both of those came second to the females staring at their backsides but I couldn't see well. Caught up in the chase would holla for my sake, I guess knowing I could pull them would help to feel safe. But them girls wasn't safe tho, cause I was done when I had what I came fo'. It made me feel like I was livin, it aint so, I wish I could go back and take away the pain bro. Now as I sit on this stage and the drummer play the symbols and thangs, somebody round the corner on a mission tryna get em some change, hopin he can pay for a change.
