DMX - Cold World Lyrics

[Adreena Mills:]
Does it really get this cold in the summer?
Does it really get this dark in the day?
Boy they really turn their backs when you talking
When they lay somebody else's head where you lay
Know that I ain't easy to be hard
I find it even harder to be easy
You know sometimes I close my eyes and I wonder
If I ever left how much you'd miss me
Yo somebody told me blood is thicker than water
If a man can say then he can recognize his own daughter
And if hell is below would you pay the price to go
Then I can make it to heaven for sure

[Hook - Adreena Mills:]
This is a cold world, (what)
Cold world
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way
This is a cold world, (what)
Cold world
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way

Cats don't know what they say what they talking
So I just let a nigga say what he feel
Fuckin' with the kid they gonn end up in the coffin
Cuz I'ma say what I gotta say with the steel
Niggas hating cuz I got a job
I know it's they job to be hating
I'm a dog so I don't fuck with cats (nah!)
If they gon' have me living in the state pen
It's about time I reacted (yeah!)
Look what you all did to this rap shit (what?)
Knowin' niggas is wrong, come on with the cat shit (come on!)
Wack shit, get niggas torn down slap quick
Bam ,bam ,bam go down that quick
Acting like the truth was gone
And I'm sayin' got mill with the ruthless one
It's 2 piece, if your faggot ass 2 persona
I go hard, no dog don't do it, too late it's done
Hold up, I'ma show you why a dog is the illest, killest
You might catch it, but you'll feel this (yeah!)
The realest nigga to ever do it, the realest nigga to ever go through it
And y'all gon' bring me back to it
Y'all gon' make me lose my mind (yeah!)
Middle name is grime, came from crime
You thought I'ma change in time, niggas don't know me
But you been holdin something
You ain't got it? nigga show me

This is a cold world
Cold world
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way
This is a cold world
Cold world
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way

[Adreena Mills:]
The tunnel looks bright up from behind but you gotta keep moving
Moving,moving because if life stops spinning in the right direction
You lose it, lose it, lose it, lose it
See in the night, I pray to keep me breathing
To see another day to give them something to believe in
'Cause I know it won't always be this way
When you tryin' hard to make a change.

  61. reddeath1944able

    haha hes a dumbass, everyone has their own problems that dont take from what you believe in, he just wants to fight over youtube...

  62. lefthandovfaith

    Don't mistake me, I am not perfect. I do however believe that actions speak louder then words, and well I am no christian, but I know my actions speak louder then DMX's words. Its easy as hell to say you are a christian but not do a damn thing to represent that fact, I witnessed it my whole life growing up in the bible belt. Its much easier to say you are a sinning christian then to be a good human being, whats even worse is heh its more excepted.

  63. robertwarrior

    u calling dmx fake?? aha nice joke. The lord cleans you up like he he is doing with DMX and who are you to judge do you have no sin? are you perfect? didn't think so

  64. lefthandovfaith

    lol christian music? when the motherfucker is so high in some interviews talking shit don't make me laugh. I am no way a christian but I can call out a hypocrite or fake when I see one, but then again thats the problem I have with 95% of christians in the first place.

    Jesse Hope

    You can be high and struggling to do right and still believe in christ!!! That's the good news

  65. MVRQUE

    RESPECT FROM ESTONIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Dustin R.S.S

    fuck yea :)

  67. Zyzz

    Everytime i listen to DMX's music i remember Tupac

  90. Stuart William

    This is the best verse of all 2012. It's powerful. It's deep. It's what has been missing in hip-hop for a few years. A verse from someone's heart.

  91. ↺-enιgмaтιc-↻

  92. King1Leon

    Right. But, you give a fuck about Pokemon, though. What more can I say.

  96. Miscin Brah

    I love how your comparison is solja boy, Your sixteen your still a kid!. And dont ever put DMX in the same category as those pieces of shit ever again...

  97. King1Leon

    Keep listening 'cause you haven't got a clue. First of all, it's not a mixtape, and the bark has been his trademark since way back in the day and has a lot of meaning behind it. Learn your rap/hip-hop history, son. Better yet, stick to your whack teenage pop/hip-hop hybrid music.

  98. SuperMurkleman

    are u retarded and did i hit a nerve about your boyfriend justin only one talkin shit is u

  99. felix faykus
