(Nelly Talking)
Free City
This is a shout out to every young brother ya know
That’s doin' his thing right now
Keep ya head up…
He’s walkin' the yard wishin he had wings
Ya know so he could fly up out that joint
Man

If I could, fly away
Ooh and I wouldn’t come back no more
I, I’d turn around,
Just to see you for the last time,
See, now I know
Hey, that it won’t be easy
I done fought in a battle, and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet, but its still the longest yard

Man, it’s the longest yard I ever had to get in my life
And see my life ain’t right, if my wife don’t write
My niggas can’t eat if the fish don’t bite
My raise the gross sales, like Mike and Ike
Now big brother almighty
I keep a gamma ray, I’ma G-5 G
Take a G-5 jeep, G-5 deep
Too some of their bare feet
And that jeep don’t speak
Listen mayne they lock it down round herre
See body bag and gag and your found round herre
This as serious as it sound round herre
The guards guard the ground, 4 pounds round herre
And they ain’t playin', they’re just lettin you know
That anything they want to happen, nigga happen real slow
Get the word from upstairs, put you in that hole
I can’t take it, I’m just ready to go

If I could, fly away
Ooh and I wouldn’t come back no more
I, I’d turn around,
Just to see you for the last time,
See, now I know
Hey, that it won’t be easy
I done fought in a battle, and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet, but its still the longest yard
Yeah, its still the longest yard
Uh uh, its still the longest yard
Um um, its still the longest yard
I done fought in a battle and I done made it this far

I’m in my cell 20 hours a day
And doin' push-ups ever hour a day
'Cause I’m tryin' to keep the cowards away
That’s why I’m markin off the calendar days
Tryin' to get it out of the way
And I’m just tryin' to keep a piece of mine
And I’m gon shame a motherfucker with a piece of mine
'Cause he tryin' to take a piece of mine
So I’m gon slice his ass a piece at a time
But now that they close the door
Lock me in and cell 30 deep but its built for 10
Tell me what kind of world they got you in
With the barbed wire fences, box you in
From now, till they turn off the lights
I’ma read anything in sight
Its kinda hard tryin' to read at night
But I’ma change my life
And hope another brother take this flight

(Ooh no) I gotta make it out this place some how
(Ooh no) Man I really believe that I done turned it around
(Ooh no) You see, all I need is that second chance to show,
Since incarceration, my obligation to rehabilitation
(Ooh no) They can punch me high, and they can kick me low
(Ooh no) But I mean it’s gonna take more than that for them to break my soul
(Ooh no) Man its hard for people to understand what it’s like to be,
Gated, incarcerated, I just can’t take it, but I’ma make it man to see better days

If I could fly away,
If I could I turn around,
If I could fly away
