I had no advantage over you 
There was troubles and I had'em too  
Just 'cause you're so strung out 
Don't mean it can't work out

   Do you like bananas

Say you're a victim of society 
You ask them for your mercy  
Just like the cats in the garbage cans  
When's their time coming, man

      You better give up on my insistence
      Things happen overnight   
      You don't give up without a fight

You say you're poor and uneducated   
You ain't gotta chance 'cause you're hated 
You're on your way to life's promotion     
You hinder it with emotion
