    DAZED AND USED
    WAS THE FORMULA
    THEY GAVE ME

    NOW THEY MINIUM WAGE ME
    HUNT ME DOWN
    AND TRY TO CAGE ME
    THROW PISTOLS IN MY PALMS
    EDUCATIONALLY IN SLAVE ME


    OUT RAGE ME

    EXPLODING IN MY MIND

    I SUGGEST EVERY CHILD READ PSALMS

    ITS BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

    TRAPPED IN BEAUTIFUL WORDS

    BEAUTIFUL WORDS

    LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING

    MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD

    I SATND STILL........................... EVEN THOUGH

    YOU KEEP TRYING TO MARKET MY GIFTS

    CONSTANTLY RAPING MY VERY HARD FOUNDATION

    ****KING* ME IN AND OUT OF EXCTINCTION

    QUESTIONS
    REAL CONCERNS
    REAL ANSWERS
    ARE YALL REALLY RELATING

    QUESTIONS


    ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT ME

    SELLING ME THE BULL SHHHHH IT
    THEIR BULL SHHHHHH IT

    NOW

    THINK ABOUT ...................................(IT)


    THEY SAY WE KILLING OURSELVES
    AND I SPEAK

    THESE POWERFUL WORLDS ORALLY AND VERY CASUALLY

    AND

    WITH NO DEGREE ( UNIVERSITY OF THE STREETS )

    LIFE IS MY TEACHER


    LIKE I WONT FIGHT BACK
    LIKE I CANT FIGHT BACK
    LIKE I WILL NOT FIGHT BACK

    BUT THEY JUST CANT FIGURE ME OUT

    THEY WONT FIGURE ME OUT

    BUT ITS GODS PLAN IN THIS MAN

    AND

    I WONT SINK IN YOUR SINKING SAND

    PEN JUST WONT LEAVE MY HAND

    PARKING MY BICYCLE OF LIFE LEANING
    ON A NINE ELEVEN KICK STAND


    AND IM

    SUROUNDED BY ANGELS
    I DONE BEEN BAPTIZED
    AND FILLED
    WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

    ANCHORED EVEN DEEPER STILL

    ALL THINGS ARE POSSIABLE

    I JUST WONT LET THIS RUGGED WORLD DROWN ME

    LIVING FOR THE CHANGE

    NOW TELL ME
    WHOSE THUGGIN
    WHOSE LOVIN

    WHOSE A REAL MAN
    WHOSE A REAL HUSBAND

    WHOSE A REAL WIFE
    WHOSE A REAL WOMAN

    AND IF YOU EVEN CARE ABOUT YOUR SELF THE LEAST BIT

    STAND UP
    BREATHE
    BELIEVE
    RECOGNIZE DREAM

    BREAK THE HAND CUFFS

    PUT YOUR HANDS UP

    ACHIEVE

    BECOME WHAT THEY THINK THEY KNOW
    BUT THE CANT SEE


    BECOME SOMETHING FAR MOR GREATER

    BECOME

    YOU
    YOU
    YOU
    YOU
    YOU.......
    .............
    .........................................
    ............................................... YOU.......................................
    ............................................... U ..............................................
    BECOME ONLY YOU
