lyrics

Chapter V
Mind your steps and watch your mouth
In the presence of God
2 Speak less
If you’re listening, you might hear him talk
3 Fulfill all the promises
You make with your heart
4 Please be honest with yourself
That’s where honesty starts
5 Why can’t you hold true
To the vows that you make?
6 Shaking your head at your reflection
Like this vow’s a mistake
7 Running your mouth—babbling
Like you talking in dreams
8 But if God ain’t the topic
Tell me; what does it mean?
Yeah, 9 I hear you talking
Ya’ll be talking bout life
10 People oppressed and deprived
And you shouldn’t be surprised
11 Cause they can take away your freedom
Try to strip you of your pride
12 Just to get a little richer
And they’re never satisfied
13 They got all they need and more
But never all that they want
14 But we all depart this world
The same way that we come
15 If you’ve got it, live humble
Get distracted by joy
16 So when reality start’s hollering
You’ll hardly hear the noise.

Chapter VI
I see the wealthy pass away
2 With no one to remember them
No flowers on their graves
3 I’ve seen poor men
With long lives and plenty kids
4 Die without enough capital
To be buried with
5 And the common phrase
Is rest in peace
6 But a still-born child
Knows more peace than these
And...7 everybody got a mouth to feed
8 But even with a full belly
We want more than we need
9 Who does it benefit?
To be wise and broke?
10 If you can’t afford shoes
It hurts to walk the good road
11 Too much desire
Such an appetite for sin
12 Tryna find the meaning in it
We’re just chasing the wind
13 Human condition
Is as old as mankind
14 They tryna look for something new
But there’s nothing to find
15 What’s good in life
Is up to you to decide
16 But live with it
Cause time slips away and we die
