    i am addicted to sex and allergic to love
    i flirt with death only to get a buzz
    i'll work up a sweat if i don't blow up!
    so, i line up next to bust a flow, cous
    but, i'm not a rapper, i'm a wrapper
    wrapped around my happiness
    i'm not a player or an actor
    i can feel my sadness
    d*** girl i feel like you saved me
    from a life of hell maybe
    thank god for this baby
    i might have gone crazy
    i guess i'll work up that sweat
    step up, and make that check
    but, my father's a reverend and gets respect
    i haven't been to church in a year no less
    as i walk in, they stare ladies with big hats
    as i testify tambourines ring and they alll clap
    "We've been waiting for you son." says Minister Winn
    it's like the door's been wide open and I walked right in
    My father sank in the pulpit and handed me a Bible
    a robe, some water and said, "This is Revival."
    This IS survival. I shouldn't feel ashamed
    my old friend said, "Who the hell is King James?"
    I said, "I've never met him but, he wrote a good book."
    "How did the Bible save you?"
    I said, "Take a good look."
    I'm G-O-D, I have beauty, strength and wisdom
    My eyes don't lie and I survived the cataclysm
    another friend said, "All praises due to Allah...
    If you died and met Muhammed would he know who you are?"
    I said, "What color was Muhammed?...
    and Who wrote the Quran?...
    Didn't Jesus send him to comfort and calm?"
    God and Allah must be related
    to the mother of ALL creation, most loved and hated
    regardless of matter, my mind is what counts
    and this is what The Most High is all about
    but, back to the church, my wife, and my child
    my life is like yours, taking place right now

    based on true events

    "Back to Life, Back to Reality"

    The road had some detours, all roads do, but you progressed onward, becoming a strong, dependable man. Continue to stand tall and proud.
