Joyner Lucas – Devil’s Work

Joyner Lucas - Devil's Work

Father forgive me

I'm staring at this bible as I keep glancing
Dear lord I got questions and I need answers
Tryna understand your vision all I see is damage
Just a bunch of dead bodies in the street camping
A bunch of lost souls on their feet standing
We supposed to be your children I thought we family
You're supposed to be my father but I need answers
We don't need to die young we just need chances
Tired of living on the edge so it keeps grambling
Tryna talk to these strippers but they keep dancing
We just wanna be number one like Steve Francis
Bow my head say a prayin' now a seed's planted
Everywhere I turn I see an MC vanished
Lot of good niggas gone I don't understand it
Lot of families lost and they seem stranded
I ain't trying to disrespect you I just need answers
I know you're watching us from heaven thinking "Who to save?"
Cherry pickin' who should go next and who should say
I'd be on my way to heaven if I knew the way
And bring back every good nigga you choose to take
They say you never wrong but you done made a few mistakes
Cause you taking the wrong niggas maybe you should trade
Trade us back all the real ones and remove the fakes
I think you should trade
Give us 2Pac back and take that nigga Suge
Let the legend resurrect and he gon' live for good
I been screaming thug life in every different hood
If only you could bring him back yeah lord I wish you would
Give us Biggie, give us Pun, give us Triple X
Take that nigga Trump with you that's a bigger threat
There's too much power for a coward with no intellect
That's a bigot with a collar that's a disconnect
Niggas dying momma crying grandma need a tissue
Nigga shootin' up a church now I need a pistol
All them niggas still livin' you don't see the issue?
But how you chase a leader then you take a liter with you?
I ain't tryna disrespect just need to meet up with you
I ain't tryna over step just want a reason with you
Give us back our loved ones and take the evil with you
Send them suckers straight to hell they don't need a *
I need you to give us back Martin Luther, take Martin Shkreli
Give us back Malcolm, take R. Kelly
RIP Lil Snoop give that boy his life back
