Lyrics:

[Intro – Pac Talking] Dedicated to those people that uhh
For some reason look at us as role models
You do know that things change
It might not look like its a cool world right now
Its cool though, things get better
Believe me things change
Tell em about it

[Chorus] Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind
(things change)
Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind

[2Pac] Now can you picture young niggas in the a rush to grow
To hard timers in the Penn, had to crush his throat
Probably never even saw it coming
Too busy bull-shitting, caught him with his mouth runnin
Ain’t this a bitch they got me twisted in this game
The feds, and the punk police pointing pistols at my brain
I wonder if I’m wrong, cause I’m thugged out
My homies murdered execution style, runnin in the drug house
What was supposed to be a easy hit
Now shit is flipped cause niggas died over bullshit
Inside my dreams I’m seeing pictures of a broken man
No witnesses, only the question of who smoked the man
Young adolecence in the prime live the life of crime
But what ain’t logical, we hobble through these trying times
Living blind, Lord help me with my troubled soul
Why all my homiez had to die before they got to grow
And right before I put my head on the pillow, say a prayer
One love to the thug’s in heaven, see you there
It’s written for the young and dumb that wasn’t born
Help me make it threw the storm, the words to my first born
Feel me

[Hook – 2Pac] While trying to maintain through the pressure
Hustlers trying to make life better, for you and me
Nobody loves you when your stuck in the game
But maintain, because all things change, feel me

[Chorus] Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind
(things change)
Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind

[2Pac] Ever since my very first day on this earth I was cursed
So I knew the birth of a child would make my life worst
And though it hurt me, there was no distortion
Cause wild seeds can’t grow, we need more abortions
Quiet your soul
Cause you know what you had to do
And so they victims of the world that never came to
I understand there is a better day coming
Sometimes catch me slipping with the car
Running driving at a dead end blinded
Ain’t no love in the hood only hearts torn
Love letters to the innocent and unborn
All the babies that died up on the table
Wasn’t able to breathe cause the family wasn’t able
Can’t blame her I would do the same
All I could give it was my debt and my last name
Cause in the game things change living up and down
Hard life got me walking with my head down
Wearing frowns wasn’t meant to be, was I wrong
But i’ll never get to know so I carry on
It’s written for the young and dumb that wasn’t born
My words to my firstborn, feel me (feel me)

[Outro: 2pac] This for all the babies that died on the abortion tables
You know, all the mothers that didn’t have a choice
Things change

[Chorus] Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind
(things change)

Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind
(tell’em)

Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind

Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind

Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind

Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind

Things are changing, all the time
Some things you must leave behind
