    waking up thinking somebody's
    hands were on me...
    it's just the drugs and another
    Sunday morning...
    The corners are empty
    and quite moody...
    the vice lords and
    disciples are truce'n...
    the preachers are moving
    the bible are in their hands
    the sweat are on their brows
    it's time for proving...
    to the back row hooligans...
    appropriately dressed in
    white tees, jeans, and scuffed
    chucks and forces...

    I've been there before...
    the grudge matches with lonely poets
    who questioned my soul...
    back against the walls
    teasing the tightropes...
    the devil's greatest creation
    isnt the sci-fi channels...
    or some silly UFO's
    the greatest deception is fearing
    what you don't know...
    open your eyes and shut your mouth
    you might learn more...
    I dont know where you've been
    but you couldn't walk my roads...
    not with your soft heart and
    your holy ghost...
    the opposition will
    eat...you...whole...
    everything you see in the sky
    isn't truth and golds....

    It's a shame when two "n.iggas"
    cant get along...
    on a religious tip...
    came together as one
    chained and whipped...
    now we'll kill each other
    over chains and whips...

    we'll sell our religion
    through some five
    page pamphlet
    at gas stations...

    we'll sell our religion
    on a bow tie and
    fruit basket....

    anything to please god
    and fill them pockets...
    anything to please god
    and avoid hell's pits...

    anything will do
    now days...

    4 they who don't believe their hearts, anything will do...

    But that's only temporary.

    Nice piece.

    Peace.
