The Convo



You tell me that there's love here

But to me it's blatant

Nothin' but all the blood here

I'm dealin' with Satan

Plus with all the hate

It's hard to keep peace (Uh huh)

Thou shall not steal,

But I will to eat

I tried doin' good, but

Good's not too good for me


Why you chose the hood for me

Mean I'm aight,

I just had to work hard at it

Went to grandma for the answer,

She told me that God had it

So now here I am,

Confused and full of questions

Am I born to lose

Or is this just a lesson

And who it's goin' choose

When it gets turned around

And will it be

Layin' in my own blood

And on the ground

My child,

I watched you grow up

And I've been there (Uh huh)

Even at those times

You least suspected it I was there

And look at what I've given you

A talent to rhyme

I may not come when you call,

But I'm always on time

Somebody's knockin'

Should I let 'em in

Lord we're just startin',

But where will it end

Somebody's knockin'

Should I let 'em in

Lord we're just startin',

But where will it end

But when the funds are low

The guns will blow

Lookin' for that one that owe,

Make 'em run that dough


Put down the guns and write a new rhyme

You'll get it all in due time

You'll do fine

Just have faith

'Cause you mine (Uh huh)

And when you shine

It's gon' be a sight to behold.

So don't fight to be old,

Or lose sight when it's cold

See that light down the road,

It's goin' guide you there

Two sets of footsteps,

I was right beside you there

But what about them times

I only saw one

Those were the times that I was under the gun,

It was then I carried you my son

Led you to safety

It just wasn't your time to face me (Uh huh)

Ah-yo a few of them times I thought you would erase me

But all you did was embrace me

Prepared me for the worst

Offered me eternal light,

And scared me with the hearse

And the curse

Turned to grace

When the hurt, turned to faith

No more runnin', (Uh huh)

Slidin' in the dirt

'Cause I'm safe

Somebody's knockin'

Should I let 'em in

Lord we're just startin,

But where will it end

Somebody's knockin'

Should I let 'em in

So if I'm yo' man

I'm in yo' hands

What's yo' plan?

Never had a friend

'Cause you couldn't trust your man

Learned to stand before I crawled

Things were twisted!

And if you showed me anything at all

Then I missed it

Looked the wrong way (Uh huh)

I've done some wrong things (True)

Kept a bad attitude,

But that's what wrong brings

And now you mean to tell me that

After all this time,

It was you that kept the dog from goin' out of his mind.

It was you that breathed life

Into my lungs when I was born

And it was you that let me know

What was right,

From what was wrong

And it was you that let me do

What I knew what could be done

And it was you that gave me a good wife

And a beautiful son

And it's been you speakin' to me

Inside my mind

And it's been you who has forgiven

Time after time

It was you who opened my eyes

So I could see

It was you who shined yo'

Light on me
