(Kelly Price) What can I do? What can I do, to make it better? Yeah, yeah
(Scarface) I thank the Lord, for every morning, he allows me to rise And though the sun is shining, there's a cloud in the sky Lettin' me know, that at any moment, there could be rain And as beautiful as life is, there still can be pain Down the park, I hear the sirens, just screamin' away And then the unevitable happens, the end of them days As sad as it sounds, but that's the price we all gotta pay And the whole world knows God giveth, will taketh away (will taketh away) I live and I learn, I sit and watch my cigarette burn Down to the ash, it remindes me of the now and the passed I say a little prayer, 'cause eventually I'll stand in the path Of the souls and dark rows that lead to rest
(Chorus) Do you hear them, crying? Waiting for someone to come and dry their tears (someone like you and me) Take away their fears
And then a child is born Bloody legged, clingin' to life Unaware of his surroundin's or breathin' is right In the arms of his mother as he looks in her eyes He takes his first breath and he screams (baby's alive) At the same time, another mother, murders her kids And the unbarable thought of this hear, just' brings me to tears It's hard enough we gotta raise our kids to live in this world So full of hate with no faith, and killin' your pearls And sometimes, I sit it down, and wonder myself But then again, I ain't Jesus, and I can't help All I can do, is hope I never live with the fact That if I heard one of my seeds is dealin' with that That'd be the hardest thing, I'd ever have to do in my time I'd have to take my own life too, and I couldn't glide Instead what he'd, what you hear me singin' bout it in my ride And a parent hurtin' his kid ain't decidin' the time I know it's truth, the next day, we just livin' to die But I believe if you livin' right, you'll live in the sky Lookin' down on the good and the bad, the world as a whole And hopefully you did what you did, before you had to go
(Chorus) Do you hear them, crying? Waiting for someone to come and dry their tears (someone to dry their tears) Take away their fears Can I make it, better? (I want to make it better) Can I ease the pain that they are goin' through? (they're through) What can I do? What can I do?
I say "goodbye" to your cruel world I see peace to the red sky I see these are where the dead die, leavin' my head high And if the streets up ahead crowd with the heat from the lead fly But the grief when I said "Bye," pull the sheets on my bed dry We're turnin' the table, we tellin' a tale That the destruction of human flesh, and it not so great Long list of the John Doe's, and Kauntly the spirit With them jails of souls lost, we hope that God hears it Resurection very harsh, crowdin' in the room Muffle sounds on the outside, echo the tomb But I'm cold
(Kelly Price) Do you hear me? I'm cryin'
(Chorus) Do you hear them, crying? (x2 to fade) Waiting for someone to come and dry their tears (someone to dry their tears) Take away their fears (take away their fears) Can I make it, better? (gonna make it better) Can I ease the pain that they are goin' through? (everything they're goin' through) What can I do? What can I do?
