I ain't dead yet, say a prayer for me, please
I can feel this pain scribing tears on these sleeves
Can't be seen as weak, can I even sneeze?
There might just be a demon in this very air I breathe
Satan is after us, he just wants to get my keys
Being covered in the blood is what's gon' bring him to his knees
Heaven, Heaven is the goal of the saints
But being baptized in the fire is what would humble a king.......
God sure 'nough humbled a King,
I've been through numbers of things
I've been broken down and raised up
Scraping and caked up
Now my spirit's linked up to Moses and Jacob
Nxggas is striking poses on a wake up
That's that ignorance
.......................How long will Freedom take us?
Why should a man of honor lose it all and take a pay cut
While the vile cracks a crooked smile and plots another shake-up
On a man who works so hard he's got no time to get a shape up
Say what's......really on your mind
We play so many games with Life you'd think that happiness is crime
But happiness is prime
The nappiest of haters couldn't make it on their own
So they'd rather drop a dime on my journey back home to the throne
It's mine..........It's mine.......
We blame our strife on poverty but never know the cause
'Cause we're too busy flashing to start a cause
