Beaten Up Chucks (Original)

Beaten up chucks
on a downtown street
smoke in the air
looks like lies and deceit
got a chain hangin'
from his right side
the expression on his face
is like somebody died
and his footsteps fall
like battle drums
and as he walks
he hears the sky hum
"Children he's the one
that your momma told you 'bout
he's the one to be scared of
he's the one you should doubt"
but he walked anyway
and he looked straight ahead
'cause if the sky was right
he'd already be dead
and he was as alive
as he had ever been
the stereotypes fell
to let his true colors win.
