2Pac – Never Be Peace (feat. Outlawz) (Remixes Vol. 1 Album)


So why you ask me if I want peace if you can’t grant it?

And if we make it up out, we still stuck in the dark
Now of course I want peace on the streets, but realistically
Will there ever be peace?
But after puberty, we brought war to our community
And I know there’ll never be peace
And you at the funeral every motherfuckin’ weekend?

And I gotta be blind, missed sign after sign
‘Cause there’ll never be peace
Plus my teachers was too petrified in class to teach me
Nigga, it ain’t no motherfuckin’ peace
And I don’t like nobody, they don’t like me more
Will there ever be peace, or are we all just, headed for doom?still consumed by the beast?
Stack my funds and my guns, never rely on luck
Pssh, and you motherfuckers talkin’ about peace?
Never let no weapon formed against me prosper
These niggas ain’t even got no childhoods no more
It seems drugs done turned this whole mothafuckin’ hood out
Sippin’ Thunderbird and grape Kool-Aid, callin’ Earl
And I know there’ll never be peace
Dawg, we livin’ in a prison, losin’ our religion
‘Cause there’ll never be peace, so don’t rely on it, soldiers dyin’ for it, and in the ghetto, they cryin’ for it. But fuck peace!
Watch my lil’ homies lose they childhoods to guns
So I stays ready, keep my pay heavy and boss up
And I’m good with that finally, but they heard it before
I’m only concerned about me and mine in these times
Niggas spendin’ too much time hatin’ on each other
[Verse 2: Kastro]
But still I’m steppin’, keep my weapon, must protect myself
And it ain’t hard to find a friend like mine
On the strength ’til my niggas get a piece, we can’t have peace
I ain’t a hater player, but I want all you got
You ain’t seen the news motherfucker? You ain’t heard? Lil’ babies gettin’ smoked, motherfuckers killin’ they whole family
We can’t never have peace ’til you motherfuckers clean up this mess you made Fuck peace!
But there’s a devil in the ghetto tryin’ to tear it apart
[Verse 3: E.D.I.]
And I know there’ll never be peace
‘Til you fuckin’ clean up the dirt you dropped
That’s why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets
Motherfuckers gettin’ abused
That’s why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets
[Outro: 2Pac]
Will there ever be peace, or are we all, just headed for doom?
The good die, mostly over bullshit, repeatedly
Or are we all just headed for doom?
Paintin’ perfect pictures ain’t never worked, my misery

Memories of adolescent years, there was unity
Bigfully is a bullet and he don’t mind dyin’
All us niggas actin’ up, wild-ass motherfuckin’ adolescents
That’s why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets
Still consumed by the beast?
And I know there’ll never be peace (never)
We all believe God’s new plan to make it out of this
Nigga, there’ll never be peace
You feel me, dawg? C’mon, uhh
[Hook: 2Pac]
Peace? Nigga, is you out your fuckin’ mind?
So it could never be peace
Lil’ kids gettin’ thrown off buildings
But the rest of me know, war is what’s waitin’ for us
Westside ‘Til we get a piece, fuck peace!
Nigga, there’ll never be peace
Still consumed by the beast?
Fool, there’ll never be peace

Shit, fuck peace! Will there ever be peace?
You motherfuckers are smilin’, but I’m mean muggin’
And the victim is you and me, it’s sick, but it’s true indeed
That’s why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets
On Thanksgivin’ we thankful, just for livin’ in Hell
Niggas fightin’ across the whole planet
So many bodies droppin’, it’s gotta stop, I wanna help
Y’all babies had babies, now we fightin’ each other
‘Cause there could never be peace

My dawgs got frabies, they bitin’ each other
And I know there’ll never be peace
Never! Will there ever be peace? Just a piece of my heart.
Why? ‘Cause I gotta be thuggin’
[Final hook: 2Pac]

Deep in me there’s a part that wants nothing but love
How the fuck can you have a childhood
[Middle hook: 2Pac]
The promise of a better tomorrow ain’t never reached me

Will there ever be peace, or are we all just, headed for doom?still consumed by the beast?
That’s why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets
Thangs is changin’, nigga, you better read the signs
So will there ever be peace

Somebody owes me. Will they control me? Not
The only peace we got is a piece of our heart, piece of our mind, or that damn piece that we hold in our waistline

Niggas buyin’ guns, loadin’ ’em up, aimin’ at each other
[Interlude: Outlawz]
In my quest for cash I learned fast, usin’ violent measures
Since my stomach was empty it seduced me to fuck the world
Askin’ God to point out the impostor
The world is a ghetto and peace is not a part of it
Nobody cries no more, ‘cause we all die for fun
How the fuck we gon’ live happy when we ain’t got nothing?

[Verse 1: 2Pac]
Was so deep, couldn’t sleep through all my pressures
Time after time after time after time
Will there ever be peace, or are we all just, headed for doom?still consumed by the beast?
Damn, homie, I don’t mean to be harsh
