Track Name: Joy and Pain (Featuring Skulastic)
"Joy & Pain" Lyrics Sheet

Intro
yeah...check it check it

all my people on the planet
money
all my people on the planet
sex... greed
all my people on the planet (what else?)
power...ya know
all my people on the planet
all my people I know its hard not to slip when your dealt with hardships
yeah...

Verse 1
shorty in a skirt? trying to tantalize
she be doubtin her self-worth i can see it in her eyes
strip homeboy of his benz, ends and gold chains
he be going through the same struggle and the same pains
(I can see it... yeah...no doubt)
lil youngin, thuggin, fittin in with the wrong crowd
stealing from his sister when he know she not around
at times the weight of the pain can feel like a ton
and we try to fill that void till we know that pains numb
but we all got a place that we know we came from
and the law says you gotta give some to gain some

Chorus
All the joy and pain that this life bring its a universal thing
all my people on the plant
people on the plant... people on the plant...no doubt its a challenge
all my people on the planet
people on the plant...no doubt its a challenge
but this joy and pain is a universal language

Money, sex, greed, power, all of life's trips
I know its hard not to slip when your dealt with hardships

I know its hard, I know its hard, I know its hard
all my people on the planet
all my people on the planet...people on the planet... no doubt its a challenge
all my people on the planet
people on the plant...no doubt its a challenge
but this joy and pain is a universal language

Money, sex, greed, power, all of life's trips
I know its hard not to slip when your dealt with hardships

Check check it now... check it out now
Check check it now... check it out now

Verse 2
But every soul has an inner light dying to shine
and half the fight is maintaing the right state of mind
so once you get it don't forget it don't let it outta your sight
know your in it to win it, sink or swim, fight or flight
(yeah thats right... yeah thats life) shine
check it, if you let it, then the sun will shine on through
to every aspect of your life like it was meant to
see the youngin now a grown man takin a stand
trying to give his kids all the things that he never had (never had)
(ok... what else?)
and shorty traded in her skirt for a real nice blazer
with a daughter of her own, knows the right way to raiser her
bet that we all got something that were livin for
peace, love and happiness...thats the fullest reward!

Chorus
you gotta maintain through all this joy and pain, that this life bring? its a universal thing
all my people on the planet
people on the planet...people on the planet...no doubt its a challenge
all my people on the planet
all my people on the planet...no doubt its a challenge
but this joy and pain is a universal language
(check it out now)

Money, sex, greed, power, all of life's trips
I know its hard not to slip when your dealt with hardships

I know its hard, I know its hard, I know its hard
all my people on the planet
people on the planet...people on the planet... no doubt its a challenge
all my people on the planet
all my people on the planet...no doubt its a challenge
but this joy and pain is a universal language
(oh ya...oh ya...oh ya...check it!)

Money, sex, greed, power, all of life's trips
I know its hard not to slip when your dealt with hardships

but even though its hard....you gotta stick with it!!!!!
