Common - War Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Lil Mark get shot, Lil Reese and them
  • Little niggas, it's hard to find peace in them
  • Chiraq, they say it's Middle Easterin'
  • Put your flames in the air for the deceased to them
  • Young soldiers who never got to become older
  • Dogtagged in the body bag
  • Police kept the knot he had
  • Plus he had weed in his system
  • Never knew at 13 they could enlist them
  • Momma kissed him, body was colder
  • She was shaking, I tried to hold her
  • Tears on my shoulder, he was supposed to
  • Be going to his junior year, this is his funeral year
  • Paul-bearers, all looking like kids
  • Some faces show anger, some show tears
  • No moustaches, no beards
  • Probably had the same aspirations as his
  • On a mission, staring in the distance
  • It never stop like the muslims and christians
  • We under-21 gun salute them
  • Just to go back and salute them
  • I'm talkin' bout war
  • To all the killas and the hundred dolla billas
  • Real hittas who ain't got no feelins
  • To all the killas and the hundred dolla billas
  • Real hittas who ain't got no feelins
  • There's a war goin on inside, no one is safe from, goin on
  • Going on, there's a war goin on inside, no one is safe from
  • Or can escape from, take one wars from the same place that hate from
  • Gang wars used to be about the nations
  • Now it's cliques with clips and hittas is missing
  • They hit the innocent now they families miss him
  • Death do kissed him, in his last breath he wishing
  • But no option so he assume position
  • It don't stop, hittas killin women and children
  • Angels cried, that's supposed to be God's decision
  • Collisions of cliques named after rap groups
  • Except wearing Jordans instead of black boots
  • Black troupes trade war stories reminiscent of glory
  • Walk the walk of those before me since I was a shorty
  • Seen slugs and drugs and unemployment
  • Terror town y'all was my first deployment
  • The life of a soldier ain't nothing to toy with
  • I'm livin' in this shit while the world exploit it
  • To all the killas and the hundred dolla billas
  • Real hittas who ain't got no feelins
  • To all the killas and the hundred dolla billas
  • Real hittas who ain't got no feelins
  • My basic training was aiming
  • Hustling, banging changing niggas up
  • Cause of what they did to us
  • Nigga, I don't give a *****
  • It's do or die in the Chi
  • And I ain't lived enough
  • Hoping for some visitors
  • Of war, I'm a prisoner
  • Politicians they did enough
  • Want to get rid of us
  • Hopped in the back as soon as the shots hit the truck
  • Looked at my son I could see his soul
  • Shot and killed at three years old
  • War, war, war, war!
  • We are at war!
  • We came up of this concept, Nobody Smilin
  • And uh, all the violence that was going on - it was happening in Chicago
  • It's happening in the inner cities all over America
  • I said "Nobody Smiling" but it's really a call to action
