Delivery me from my enemies, oh GodDefend me from those that rise up against meDeliver me from the work of inequityAnd save me, from the Bloody men
Look, mind state of a gangster from the 40’sMeet the business mind of Motown’s Berry GordyTurn crack rock into a chain of 40/40’sSorry my jewelry so gaudySlid into the party with my new pair of MaurisAmerica, meet the gangsta Shawn CoreyHey young world, wanna hear a story?Close your eyes and you could pretend you’re meA cut from the cloth of the Kennedy’sFrank Sinatra having dinner with the GenoveseThis is the genesis of a nemesisMother America’s not witnessed sinceThe Harlem Renaissance birthed black businessesThis is the tale of lost innocence’s, as the incense burnAnd the turntables turn and that Al Greens playsI see my mother’s afro, as mama taps her toes as she rolls her J’sAnd my papa just left the house, in search of the killer of my uncle RayAnd she’s tryna calm my nerves, as I observe this is just one dayAnd what tomorrow has in store, we could never be sure, so all we can do isPray
Because of Your strengthWhile I walked upon theeFor God is my defense (pray for me)
As I head towards my homeroom, I observe the ruins, dope needles on the groundI hear a car go, “Vrooom”, drug dealer in the BM with the top downAs the girls start to giggle, I ask, “Why you laugh?”, they say, “You too littleOne day you’ll understand, when you become a man ’bout things you have to get you”Fast forward, freeze frame on my pistolFist full of dollars, ignorance is so blissfulI didn’t choose this life, this life chose meAround here is the shit that you just doI just left school, the same BM is pulled over by the boys dressed blueThey had they guns drawn, screaming, “Just move”“Or is there something else you suggest we can do”He made his way to the trunk, opened it like, “Huh”A treasure chest was removedCops said he’ll be back next monthWhat we call corrupt, he called paying duesNow when the rules is blurred, as they is and were, what am I to do?But pray, pray the Lord forgive mePray He guides me by what I’m ’bout go throughPray
Delivery me in thy righteousnessAnd cause me to escapeAnd climb thine air unto meSave me Lord (pray for me)
Geah, anywhere there’s oppression, the drug professionFlourishes like beverages, refreshing (ah)Sweet taste of sin, everything I’ve seen made me everything I amBad drug dealer or I victim, I begWhat came first? Moving chickens or the egg?This is why I be so fresh, I’m tryna beat life ’cause I can’t cheat deathTreat shame with shamelessness, aim stainless at anusesYou know who’s game this isMove coke like Pepsi it don’t matter what the brand name isI stand behind mine, everything I do I’m a man behind mineI’m not a angel, I’m sure, but every night before I layI drop my knees to the floor and I pray
The name shall endure foreverThe name shall be continued as long as the sun (pray for me)Men shall be blessed in HimAll nations shall call Him blessedIn your name I pray (pray for me)Lord bless us
