[Chorus]
Drug boy steady shootin'
The streets don't give a damn
They're filled with such pollution
The kids don't stand a chance

We're trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hand
We're filled with so much hatred
The kids don't stand a chance,
I said the kids don't, the kids don't stand, the kids don't stand a chance
I said the kids don't, the kids don't stand, the kids don't stand a chance

[B.o.B]
Well since I was planted at birth, I abandoned my own planet
And I landed on Earth,
As a kid I never understood what I observed
Some of it was strange but most of it disturbing

Always in detention for the lack of my attention
You can call it deficit
Really I just didn't listen
And I was always missing

The teachers like, "Where is Bobby Simmons?"
But tryna get a record deal is all I can remember
It's funny 'cause looking back on the path that I had
On my days in the streets tryna prove that I was bad
I still elevated to the level that I'm at
(Still elevated to the level that I'm at)

[Chorus]
We're trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hand
We're filled with so much hatred
The kids don't stand a chance,
I said the kids don't, the kids don't stand, the kids don't stand a chance
I said the kids don't, the kids don't stand, the kids don't stand a chance

[Janelle Monáe]
Sometimes it's hard to grow
While living in fear of the unknown
How can he ever give love
When no love is in his heart?
A child can barely sleep at night, too worried about tomorrow

And would it be hold, if he drown himself
Deep down in his sorrows
Will you run and will you show your light
Tell a story, live and try
See its when we giving hope
That we know that we can grow.

[Chorus]
We're trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hand
We're filled with so much hatred
The kids don't stand a chance,
I said the kids don't, the kids don't stand, the kids don't stand a chance
I said the kids don't, the kids don't stand, the kids don't stand a chance
