Who Do You Believe In Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Let us pray
Heavenly Father
Hear a n**** down here
Before I go to sleep
Tell me, who do you believe in?
Who do you believe in?
Verse 2
I see mothers in black cryin', brothers in packs dyin'
Plus everybody's high, too doped up to ask why?
Watchin' our own downfall, witness the end
It's like we don't believe in God 'cause we livin' in sin
Verse 3
I asked my homie on the block why he strapped, he laughed
Pointed his pistol as the cop car pa**ed and blast
It's just another murder, nobody mourns no more
My tear drops gettin' bigger but can't figure what I'm cryin' for
Verse 4
Is it the miniature caskets, little babies
Victims of a stray, from drug dealers gone crazy
Maybe it's just the drugs, visions of how the block was
Crack came and it was strange how it rocked us
Verse 5
Perhaps the underlyin' fact stay high explain genocide
It's when we ride on our own kind
What is it we all fear? Reflections in the mirror
We can't escape fate, the end is gettin' nearer
Verse 6
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin'' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 7
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin'' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 8
Can't close my eyes 'cause all I see is terror
I hate the man in the mirror
'Cause his reflection makes the pain turn realer
Times of Armageddeon, murder in ma** amounts
Verse 9
In this society where only gettin' the cash counts
I started out as a beginner
Entered the criminal lifestyle became a sinner
I make my money and vacate, evade prison
Went from the chosen one to outcast, unforgiven
Verse 10
And all the Hennessy and weed can't hide, the pain I feel inside
You know, it's like I'm livin' just to die
I fall on my knees and beg for mercy, not knowin' if I'm worthy
Livin' life thinkin' no man can hurt me
Verse 11
So I'm askin', before I lay me down to sleep
Before you judge me, look at all the s*** you did to me, my misery
I rose up from the slums, made it out the flames
In my search for fame will I change? I'm askin'
Verse 12
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin'' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 13
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 14
Faith in Allah, believe in me and this plastic
'Cause so far I done witnessed to many dead n****z in caskets
With they chest plates stretched like elastic
And what's worse I'm on front line, holdin' down camp, still mashin'
Verse 15
Heard my cousin, one of the old heads from the block
Just came home October of '95 back in Yardsville stuck
Verse 16
With a three to five, if he don't act up, now he realize
If you don't stay wise, then in this game you f***ed
Talk to my baby girl, give me the word on what she heard
One of the grimmies is snitchin', diamond a stool pigeon I talked to him
He said he didn't, my man said he did, in fact he's sure
'Cause he just came home off of bail
Verse 17
Now tell me
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
Verse 18
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin'' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 19
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin'' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 20
Who do you believe in?
Is it Buddah, Jehovah, or Jah, or Allah?
Is it Jesus, is it God or is just yourself?
Definitely not to be imposed, being a demon
Verse 21
Because this is the joy of believing
Men, to believe in yourselves
But for sure, the higher power
Resides only to ride in the heart of the true
Verse 22
From the soul, of the man, for truth never has an alibi
In the poetry, or in it's realm
That's what pulls all words together
Just to understand, that every man, is his own man
Verse 23
And only man can satisfy the man
Only the soul of the man, the feelings of the man
The for realness of the man
You can't shake the man, when you feel the man, you know the man
And you gotta call yourself because you are that man
Verse 24
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
Verse 25
I put my faith in God
Blessed and still breathin'
Even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin' the grievin'
Verse 26
Who do you believe in?
Who do you
Oh blessed, oh blessed
Oh who do you
Do you believe in?
Verse 27
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin'
And even though it's hard
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin'
I'm askin'' the grievin', who do you believe in?
Verse 28
Who do you believe in?
