Livin' 2 Die
Unreleased track recorded summer 1995. Written by Sandra St. Victor and Prince.

 
R U livin', r U livin', r U livin' 2 die?
R U livin', r U livin', r U livin'?

Look at how we're livin', look at how we're livin'
Look at how we're livin' our lives
But is this really livin', r we really livin'?
Look at how we're livin' 2 die

Mama's raisin' boys 2 men
17 and young 1, 10
She wants 4 them what she don't have
Baby keeps on listenin', brother keeps on bein' bad
Who told him that this is what 2 do young man?
Surely not mama, she's left feelin' sad
When the news comes that her son
Died from bein' on the wrong side of a gun, ooh

Look at how we're livin', look at how we're livin'
Look at how we're livin' our lives

Candy's watchin' videos
Thinkin' that's how love goes
U give it up or be called a tease
Now she got a couple of babies and a strange disease

Look at how we're livin', look at how we're livin'
Look at how we're livin' our lives
But is this really livin', r we really livin'?
Look at how we're livin' 2 die, oh

And children, did U believe like I?
That the only natural human right is 2 b paralyzed
Don't let the sun set on the dawn, oh yeah
But c'mon and rise, baby, rise, it's gonna b alright

Look at how we're livin'
Check out how we're livin'
R U livin', r U livin', r U livin'?
Just wanna say 2 wrongs never make a right (R U livin'...?)
The only victims here r U and I, baby
Ooh
Look at how we're livin', hey

Look at how we're livin', look at how we're livin'
Look at how we're livin' our lives (Ooh, hey)
But is this really livin', r we really livin'?
Look at how we're livin' 2 die

Look at how we're livin', look at how we're livin'
Look at how we're livin' our lives
Ooh, but is this really livin', r we really livin'?
Hard 2 get on and trust (Look at how we're livin' 2 die)
Oh yeah!
Yeah! Oh yeah
Look at how we're livin', look at how we're livin'
Check ur world, y'all
We out (Oh yeah)
