Morray – Trenches Lyrics

[Intro]
We all experience pain
And we have our own struggles
It's all about how you come out of it
What don't kill you make you strong
And what don't break your progress make your money longer

[Chorus]
I got love for the ghetto, love for the hood
Love for the people that turn the bad into good
Love for the people that think that it could be worse
Love for the people that's putting they family first
I got love for the ghetto, love for the hood
Love for the people that turn the bad into good
Love for the people that think that shit could be worse
Love for the people that's putting they family first

[Verse 1]
Breakfast in the morning, yeah, it's finga lickin' good
Bunch of lights outside the window, kids playing in the hood
Get dressed, stepped outside, know today is gonna be good
But I'm still on high alert 'cause niggas still from the hood
Everybody see the ghetto as being a bad place
Where people run amuck, niggas stuck in a sad state
They don't see the good times that outweigh bad days
In the hood, we still smile to lighten up them dark caves
Have a cookout, make the kids dance and we share a couple laughs
Pop a bottle, share it with my homies, nigga, f*ck a glass
'Bout to roll up, tell 'em, "Hold up, pass the blunt before I spazz"
'Cause it's five niggas smokin' on a dime bag of gas
[Pre-Chorus]
We don't need the type of things on TV
Everything ain't always what it seems
Everything is easier if you believe, if you believe

[Chorus]
I got love for the ghetto, love for the hood
Love for the people that turn the bad into good
Love for the people that think that it could be worse

Love for the people that's putting they family first
I got love for the ghetto, love for the hood
Love for the people that turn the bad into good
Love for the people that think that shit could be worse
Love for the people that's putting they family first

[Verse 2]
Okay, these fathers at the bottom, makin' shit work every day
Know plenty mothers heart would suffer 'cause their son just joined a gang
Know plenty brother wanna kill a nigga that his sister date
Sister takin' care of the kids, his momma high and outta brain
Yeah it's sad and it sucks but we still find ways to make it
Or replace it, if we gotta f*ckin' do it then we'll take it
It's the basics that we lack, that's why we seem so damn impatient
People fear it, won't go near it, but we forced to just embrace it
In the hood, you gotta find out what works
And if you get it to work, you can still end up hurt
And what hurts can make you feel even worse
And what's worse is that's not even the worst
[Pre-Chorus]
We don't need the type of things on TV
Everything ain't always what it seems
Everything is easier if you believe, if you believe

[Chorus]
I got love for the ghetto, love for the hood
Love for the people that turn the bad into good
Love for the people that think that it could be worse
Love for the people that's putting they family first
I got love for the ghetto, love for the hood
Love for the people that turn the bad into good
Love for the people that think that shit could be worse
Love for the people that's putting they family first
