Drive BY-COWARD POINTS A GUN SHOOTS A GUN THEN RUNS

Not a soldier of war MIA'S Caught up in a family of no one cares just drive by MIA-Mother's Involvements Always cries Raising infant, toddler, teenaged boys alone what for Cousin Charlie sitting on the steps Not even knowing it's soon to be his last breath You better run Drive, bye... Coward points a gun Run Somebody Dun got loose Shot brother Bruce Better run Shoots his next victim Run everyone Someone got a gun Bullets left the chamber Everyone in front of point range in danger Dragnet and rage, shootings all weekend Friends turning on friends Neither a battle, now a war Killing, maiming and wounding our men and boys Black boys and men being killed just because they can Not greed nor material things or money just drive by I can pull the trigger and run just because I can and run No concern about life, just like a roach you step on Run everyone Someone got a gun Bullets left the chamber Everyone in front of point range in danger Just enough running don't look up, comin by your hood Just ridin, a good day for a ride, comin by your house....... Bullets just don't Drive, bye Nor like rainfall down from the sky Run everyone Someone got a gun Bullets left the chamber Everyone in front of point range in danger DRIVE BY?
