Down Here

I been doing what you told me Lord

Kept my head up to the heavens when the rain was pouring

Shook the demons off my back and now a nigga soaring

Bearing crowns with rays of light that they mistook for thorns

 

King in the flesh, God in the spirit

Master of the soul, my breed was raised wicked

Went from Black Panthers to kings we raised chickens

Then they raid caught a dub with an L his first conviction

 

Niggas never listen bitches never either

Willie Lynch letter’d us all, we stay scheming

I’m thankful for your blessings, with love, I write this evening

Holding tears because my people is lost and never see it

 

Tryin’ to slow the drinkin’, smokin’ like I’m Marley

Fuck it I might fall in the club off Yak and Molly

If life is to be lived, we live it like no tomorrow in the moment

While drunkin’ with the pain and losing focus

 

Chorus:

Lord I’m writing you this letter

Hoping you can hear me down here, down here

(down here, oh)

we down here , down here

we down here , down here

Lord I’m writing you this letter

Hoping you can hear me down here, down here

(down here, oh)

we down here , down here

we down here , down here

Lord I’m writing you this letter

 

I been doing what you told me God

Kept my eye out for these devils, petty thieves and frauds

Took the rafter out my eye before I judge the next

I’m working on it Lord ain’t got around to judging yet

 

Torn in the middle, demons or the angels

Chain smokin’ Diesel I’m medicating my anger

I’m thankful for the breaths I breathe to make this statement

Cause the murder of these young black seeds, I’m not a stranger

 

Wasn’t s’pose to make it, odds stacked against me

They say the men that pull them strings ain’t out to get me

But how the guns and crack cocaine still come to rip of my pride

Niggas lost their lives from ghetto dreaming

 

Trying to feed his seed, Love his child’s mother

A whole generation was murdered, we all suffer

And they ain’t even notice, my niggas too busy hustlin’ to listen

Just praying that you show us all forgiveness

 

Chorus:

Lord I’m writing you this letter

Hoping you can hear me down here, down here

(down here, oh)

we down here , down here

we down here , down here

Lord I’m writing you this letter

Hoping you can hear me down here, down here

(down here, oh)

we down here , down here

we down here , down here

Lord I’m writing you this letter
