    If I gotta burn in fire
    Feel the flames
    For my loved ones to excel in this game
    Then let it burn
    Let it burn

    As I lay me down to sleep
    I pray to the Lord that my soul he keeps
    Nobody weeps when a G dies
    But like Maya Angelou still we rise
    Mama tried to keep me home at night
    But despite her attempts
    I hung with the macks and the pimps
    Sidin' with the Rip's
    Not cuz I like blue if you like red
    I did it cuz I never did like you
    And it said the good die young
    I don't recognize myself what have I become?
    Can you tell me why am I headed for a dead end?
    Why I got another dead friend?
    Why they surround me- dead men?
    Everywhere I look right and left
    Flip another page in the book of life and death
    It's comin'- I feel it breathin' down my back
    It got me runnin' Grim Reap ain't cuttin' no slack
    What can I do where can I go
    Lord forgive me for all I did cuz I didn't know
    And when my heart beats it's last tick
    Somebody sat these three words in my casket:
    Lord have mercy

    Lord forgive me for all the wrong that I did
    All of the pain that I inflicted as a kid
    On Judgement Day consider this before you curse me
    I was only a child so Lord have mercy
    Forgive me for all the wrong that I've done
    All of the pain I inflicted when I was young
    On Judgement Day consider this before you curse me
    I was only a child so Lord have mercy

    Should I die before I wake
    Don't shed a tear Mama cuz I finally escaped
    No more drama no more blood sweat and tears
    No more pressure from my peers
    and no more fears
    I rest in peace- how long will it last
    Fore I have to answer for what I did in the past
    Illin' - willin' and dealin' cops always after me
    I call it survival and you call it misanthropy
    But let the record reflect circumstances were suspect
    But you couldn't care less- mann
    While I struggle to survive
    You turned your eyes- plugged your up ears
    Ignored my cries
    Now Ms. America sayin' we scarin' her
    But she can give me Liberty or Death- I'm darin' her
    Either one'll set me free- that's all I wanna be
    But that aint what y'all wanna see
    You'd rather see me killin' up my own in the ghetto
    Or sellin' blow to anybody Black, Brown, or Yellow
    But forget that- I'm tryin' to get my head right
    Even if it mean I gotta get dead tonight
    Lord have mercy forgive me


    Forgive me for the blood that his body bled
    And all the tears that his Mommy shed
    Book says 'Thou Shalt Not Kill'
    But I done seen more blood spilled
    Than the vets on Hamburger Hill- it's real
    Post War Syndrome- went to see my homie
    But his Mama told me that the homie been gone
    Everytime I turn around it be another body on the ground
    With fresh gunshot wounds but he didn't hear a sound
    When he came out the room
    Nobody told him he would be dead so soon
    But the gauge went boom Ms. America,
    I know you got a cure for AIDS
    But we need a cure for Raid who on a rampage
    Can you feel it- the tensions in the air thick
    Hate got me so high I'm gettin' airsick
    Got my people broke lookin for a buck to borrow
    Doin it one day at a time fuck your sorrow
    Fuck tommorrow I want revenge
    I got a Beretta named Vendetta
    Time to answer for your sin- man
    When you meet your creator- tell him I apologize
    But I gotta ride Lord have mercy forgive me...
