Better Days (feat. C Dub and Yung Ra)

from by Da Grym Reefer



[Hook: C Dub & Yung Ra]

Same ol' shit (Same shit)
Just a different day (A different day)
Still searching for those better days (Better days)
Lord it gotta be a better way (A Better way)
How more can a nigga take (Reaching for the stars)
[Repeat x1]

[Verse 1: Da Grym Reefer]

It's an everyday struggle just to pay the bills
Can't make an honest living
Damn near gotta rob and steal
Feeling like a slave
Cause even though
I got paid today
All the bills I've accrued
Or they due today

Just wish that I knew a way
To make it to a brighter day
Racing through the road of life
Looking for my right-of-way
Cause right away

Everything isn't looking good
But still trying to keep up with the Joneses
Like I'm living good
But I'm still in the hood

Tell me what you know
About poverty
No credit card in your wallet
Just an EBT

Been seeking employment
But employment ain't really seeking me
And Section 8
About the only way for me to keep my lease

Got a letter
Telling me, next month
My rent will increase
But in that same week
My work hours about to decrease

Seems like the only comfort I find is in a weed leaf
But gotta find another job
So I can't chief for six weeks (Damn!)

[Hook: C Dub & Yung Ra]

Child support due
Baby needs shoes
I might not have a job
But you ain't got a clue

So don't push me
Cause I'm close to the edge
Trying to keep from robbing niggas
Putting pistols to their head

I'm just
Fed up with not having my bread up
Rather take chances with feds trying to set a nigga up
Instead of getting fucked by a 9-5
And still can't hardly survive
Or get your head above water as hard as you try

No such thing as an honest living
Cause honestly
No one honest is even still living

I see the poor and we're still struggling
I see the rich and they still hustling
Like it's still nothing

They've got the most
But they give nothing
We got the least but we share it
Even though we ain't got nothing

And even though we ain't got nothing
We've got the will to survive more than most
So nigga that's something

[Hook: C Dub & Yung Ra]

[Verse 3: Da Grym Reefer]

Life is what you play out
Looking for a way out
We be like "Fuck a job!"
And hustle hard for a payout

Jobs like a layoff
Right before the playoffs
Fourth quarter bullshit
Right before your payoff

Guess that's how I got in this rapping shit
Cause if it wasn't for that
I'd probably be on some trapping shit

Went and got knowledge of self
Now they say I'm an activist
But I ain't got a pot to piss
How can I adapt to this

Trying to school my people
On all kinds of traps and shit
But I would get more respect
If I said I was trafficking
"Oh, now we on that again?"
"Yeah, now we're on that again."

I love all my people
I just hate where our passion is
If we wanted to change the world
More than our income

We'd still have the Black Panthers
Malcolm and then some
Instead of doing the same shit
That's just going to fade away

Dig down a bit deeper
And maybe we'll see a brighter day
(Just maybe.....)
