Circumstances Lyrics

Circumstances made me who I am
I wasn't born a violent man

He never sold no drugs, white, no mary jane
Claimed to be a thug, not fight for anything
I see growing up was easy enough
I guess his old man wanted him to have the best of tough
Just him and his big brother, cough, dear mother
Both parents around, love was all around
Or so it seemed, he met a fiend
Then started slowing tainting what was already clean
I mean you can just picture the type: tall, dark, young
'educated right till they found at night his buddy dead for nothing
Parents only saw his bloody hand by stabbing
It has been said treat a child the way he should grow, he'll never depart
Never depart, forever stays in the heart, if only they knew from the very start

Bridges ain't shit and the diamonds mean nothing
We only live once, better stand for something
The circumstances make us who we are, we are
Lay down your sticks 'cause the violence means nothing
We only live once, better stand for something
The circumstances make us who we are, we are

A diamond in the rough, she was young the first time daddy
Huffed and he puffed and blew the house down
Spouse that mom found used to drag her around
Her real dad? Well, he packed a bag then bounced
If only mommy knew daddy stalking her room at night
Could never hear the fight that's happening almost every night
Screams, ignore the dreams, more like nightmares
It was like having Freddy right there, right there
What didn't break her made her stronger, crying over life no longer
Feeling no longer somber, let all your '
Sitting by her, beyond her right here, right here
No longer worry through the night, Freddy got caught doing 25 to life
She's 25 tonight, so thankful for life, that the deepest, darkest fears turned to light

Bridges ain't shit and the diamonds mean nothing
We only live once, better stand for something
The circumstances make us who we are, we are
Lay down your sticks 'cause the violence means nothing
We only live once, better stand for something
The circumstances make us who we are, we are
