[Intro]
Ayy, Ayy

[Verse 1: YP14]
Mama always said, “Pray for the best, expect the worst
Don’t make promises of you go back on your word
If you’re doing it wrong, you’ve got willing to work”
Hit a search and grab the dosh, gotta get to it first
See, I grew up in church
But I had devils in my ears saying “Fuck it!”
Control it, my young mind like a puppet
Had me skipping school, ditching satties in the alley as a young’un
Never a boss, bruh, I was running
(Ayy) Tryna slang bud just to get paid
Now boys got beef, I had to run with a blade
See my bro’ got-got, and that’s when my heart changed
Took a couple L’s, but that’s part of the game
Live and learn, take how it comes
And if it kicks off, brother, don’t run
I was taught from young, that I’d be trapped in the system
Didn’t listen, and that’s how I got done

[Pre-Chorus: YP14]
See, I’m just trying to make to a living, lad, and just do me
See, I ain’t stopping ’til they set me free
(Uhh) We stand firm to the word “F-T-P!”
Praying for somebody to rescue me
(Ayy) Train hard, my brother, and stay staunch
Listen, don’t be another victim lost to the system
And you’ll be eetswa when they come to meet ya
We say, “My nigga, welcome to prison” (Ayy)

[Chorus]
Free my brothers in the yard and that
Can’t wait ’til they all come back, ’til they all come back
OneFour, part of the gang
2-7, where my heart is at, where my heart is at
We chop dogs too easy, got locked up too easy
And now I’m on T.V
I bet they’ll burn when they see me walk
They’d rather see me in between these walls

[Verse 2: JM14]
Expect the worst, hope for the best
Keep ’em close if you know they’re down for stretch
They call us ball runners with the utmost respect
We’re all known in the system, there’s not much of us left
You’re also called “The common snitch, biggest bitch
A dog that couldn’t take the pressure for what he did”
The lowest of lowest that you can get as a crim’
Having never met the rest of them down in protection
Separate from the rest of us
‘Cause our instincts always got the best of us
Paranoid, thinking now there’s no one left to trust
Don’t get me wrong, the boys in here just don’t give a fuck
But why he’s acting sus’
Heard them fellas over there, tryna take me for an Inner
Eetswa, I’m just gonna chill away
Fuck waiting another day
Pull up to his cell, give him hell
I want all you got
Put inside this pillowcase and don’t forget your dinner tray

[Pre-Chorus: JM14]
See, I’m just trying to make to a living, lad, and just do me
See, I ain’t stopping ’til they set me free
We stand firm to the word “F-T-P!”
Praying for somebody to rescue me
(Uhh) Train hard, my brother, and stay staunch
Listen, don’t be another victim lost to the system
And you’ll be eetswa when they come to meet ya
We say, “My nigga, welcome to prison” (Ayy)

[Chorus]
Free my brothers in the yard and that
Can’t wait ’til they all come back, ’til they all come back
OneFour, part of the gang
2-7, where my heart is at, where my heart is at
We chop dogs too easy, got locked up too easy
And now I’m on T.V
I bet they’ll burn when they see me walk
They’d rather see me in between these walls (Ayy)
Free my brothers in the yard and that
Can’t wait ’til they all come back, ’til they all come back
OneFour, part of the gang
2-7, where my heart is at, where my heart is at
We chop dogs too easy, got locked up too easy
And now I’m on T.V
I bet they’ll burn when they see me walk
They’d rather see me in between these walls (Ayy)

[Outro]
Free the fucking gang!
Free ’em!
