If the Grass Wasn't Green

Dizzy as the world spins around me
Wow thinking if the grass wasn't green
What would the world be?
What will I be more or less
Or would I even exist
Would a gun be as deadly
As a cut through the wrist?
I live life fast
On the edge
I look in the mirror
And it's still the same
So many downs
I pray for an up
Surprise to see the day
Hope for tomorrow
If the Grass wasn't Green
Would the hood be the hood?
And would jail be a place
for the good?
No bars
Look far
Open my eyes wide
100s on my report card
What a lie!
But I tried
Tried to get by
Fake something I hate
A feeling far from great
Hey,but I'm not perfect
And the grass is green
So I dream like King
