Zerø Meets Herø pt. 1
Strolling down the ave, scrolling down a app/
Holding down my map, that’s just problem #1/
You might know how to add, but I’ll school you on my math/
Good + Evil = Hero’s job is never done/
But the victims of the villains don’t jog or ever run/
And the witnesses lips have zippers that lock and sever tongues
Strolling down the street/
The pigs or the police
Babies making babies raising babies at 16
A broken family Is all you really see
Apathetic teachers make the school policy
Kids skip class real fast blowing on them trees
Life skips fast quick flash, homeless by the deed
Wait, who is he,
This young’n that I see, coming down the street?
Looks like a job for me
Approaching, Pace 1, pace 2,
Yo, what it is young?
Zerø: Yo what’s good?
Herø: Yo, what’s your name dude?
Zerø: My name is Zero.
Herø: Word? Well, my name is Hero.
Zerø: That’s your name?
Both: Who named you?
Herø: But yo you looking kinda down son
Zerø: Got problems
Herø: Word? Tell me about some.
Ayo this world aint about nothing
But lil chicks being tricks and lil boys gunning
The government makes a grip but aint feeding stomachs
Broken homes in the hood, ceiling nearly crumbling
Young boys hate their fathers cuz they never loved them
But then they do the same thing and amount to nothing
And I see wrists cutting, clip busting, pimps hustling
And I see pigs bugging, kids drugging, kids smuggling
And all these rapists, and these racists, and all these crazed kids, and how this place is
That’s just the way it is I can’t fake it man, I can’t take it in, I can’t make it big
That’s just the way it is
I must say it is the way you say it is/
But we can make a diff; we can change up things
Zerø: Man we can’t change a thing
Herø: Well, if that’s what your choice is/
But I aint one of these boys just acting boisterous/
I use my choices and my voice as a ploy to destroy what destroys us/
And I bet you we’ll get a change/
Zerø: Real talk Hero, I see you…but things’ll never change/
