    Lord, other thugs smoke dro
    or drown their remorse in shots of Hen
    but is there any restitution for us humble, sober men?
    I can't afford the cost of rehab
    so I get high of my sins

    I need some kind of relief
    I feel like dying 'cause I'm finding
    aint no love in these streets. So I'm a lonely black sheep

    not even my family can relate
    I guess that's why my daddy keeps his distance
    and my so-called "homeboys" stay away

    but every time that I pray
    I commit a crime of passion
    I surrender to my cross, but God there's 1 thing I'm asking:

    Can you save my fellow sinners
    if they're scared of the church?
    I've soaked the game up from the trap, so I know how bad they hurt
    swing low sweet chariot and let my customers ride
    and if you need a sacrifice Father I'll bury my pride

    I'll survive the hottest summer
    I'll brave the coldest winter
    I'll poud the gates of heaven
    just let my people in 'em

    until then...
    not a tear will I shed
    I'd rather bleed from my war wounds
    I'll post my pulpit on the corner and try to preach to all my goons

    I won't get into a sermon
    just believe me when I say
    that my worship is for real
    Ya'll....I know all about amazing grace.
