Thug Life
I have watched a lot of friends fade into the past.
Many were known trouble makers first and last.
They lived the thug life, they lived it hard and fast.

A few hustled bricks and got paid.
A few partied hearty and got laid.
A few bought a big house with a maid.

Some peddled and got caught.
Some enlisted and got shot.
Some live in a vacant weedy lot.

Most never heard the jailor's call.
Most didn't have very far to fall.
Most haven't really done much at all.
