Soldier In The Ghetto - lyrics

playlist Playlist
We need a contribution
To help us find a solution
Barely staying alive
In all this confusion
I never took a cent
That wasn't mine to keep
Worked my fingers to the bone
Dug myself in way too deep yeah
Don't define yourself by what you are
Define yourself by what you love
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
Fighting for a few home truths
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
There's war in my neighborhood
Hey I should have known better
Than to trust in the wisdom of fools
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
Won't somebody please call a truce
Now everything's different
And nothing's really changed
People trying to move on up
But they just get rearranged yeah
They'll give you what you want
Repossess all you own
I don't know where I live
But I wanna go home yeah
Don't define yourself by what you are
Define yourself by what you love
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
Fighting for a few home truths
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
There's war in my neighborhood
Hey I should have known better
Than to trust in the wisdom of fools
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
Won't somebody please call a truce
What it all comes down to
Is you don't really care
I bet you sleep like a baby
While we lie awake saying our prayers
Don't define yourself by what you are
Define yourself by what you love
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
Fighting for a few home truths
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
There's war in my neighborhood
Hey I should have known better
Than to trust in the wisdom of fools
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
Won't somebody please call a truce
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
I'm a soldier in the ghetto
