Where Are You Lord Lyrics from Bless Da Flow LP

Verse 1:
Its like her mom could never forgive her/
took her children away and left her freezing in the winter/
of course she want them back, but she can't let go of that crack/
when she finally left it alone, her whole family turn they back/
bad enough they claimin' they church folks/
stop looking for their acceptance, time to look out for your own/
trying to do the best she can, in and out of homeless shelters/
sincerely trying to change, but her environment don't help her/
she weeps, cause deep inside/
she feels like her family will never really think she's trying/
I know you sick of the pain, I know that you sick of the cryin'/
your life is on the line, I don't blame you for sipping wine/
bed bugs eating you alive/
but it's nothing compared to the stale love to she feel inside/
a man gone open up his home/
she opened up her legs/
so he beat her in the head/
and he kicked her out the door/
she just trying to praise the Lord/
only reason you a pawn ya keyboard and guitar/
till them chicks at the shelter tried to take it/
wouldn't give it up so they tried to break it ya/
you filed charges to no use/
it's like you can't escape abuse/
you went from in and out of jail to in-n-out of pews/
but redemptions in Lord, mama don't pick up at noose/
Joy's coming in the morn mama Chonne/
head up and hold on/

Chorus:

when I feel like I'd rather die/
how can I hold my head up high/
when I'm all beat up/
and my feet won't budge/
how long can I keep this up/
they say that life's supposed to go on/
but how can I be strong/
when I'm bashed and bruised/
Lord I'm asking you/
where are, where are you Lord/

Verse 2:
I know it's hard ever since you lost your mother boy/
I'm here for you like a brother know I love you boy/
you always try to do the right thing/
but your ways got ya facin time, in the pen, it's not the end/
it's hard raising three kids on her own/
section 8 don't seem to be enough to fill her home/
you aint the kind the Republicans riffin bout/
she working a steady job, trying to feed 3 mouths/
his daddy beat em/
5th to the face, so a belt is how we greet him/
his mama cheatin/
broken dishes on the floor, broken lamps, broken speakers/
can recognize the mirror, bruises cover his features/
she's never been a kid/
he took her innocence snuck through her window then/
raped her up in the bed/
feel like her womb is dead/
she wanna to bust his head/
instead she'll be a lesbian/
said she's done with men/
shut down the government/
and we don't even know if we should be blaming Democrats or Republicans/
it doesn't matter when your son gets killed/
died fighting for his country and you left to foot the bill/
I know the pain is deep/
lamentations of a dying world I hear it weep/
seems like God is asleep/
but I promise you guys got something up his sleeve /
redemption's found in the King/ you just gotta believe/

Chorus:

Verse3:
it aint where you been, its where you are going/
it's time to hold strong to your faith and gird ya loins/
my God got you at the palm of his hands/
you ain't know a fruit of the Spirit was long suffering/
what don't kill you will make you stronger/
life doin you wrong but/
sometimes we pay for sins of our fathers/
I know what's wrong but/
sometimes you can't escape the domino effect of the consequences/
I know the road looks endless/
it's full of pain tremendous/
did I forget to mention/
we have an everlasting hope/
don't get exasperated, but our mansion's pretty dope/
can't view it through a scope/
can't dream it in a dream/
treasures are more precious than you have ever seen/
and I guarantee you we gone make a scene/
when we see the scenic vision of the kingdom of the King of Kings/
you ain't got nothing more than your faith/
I aint talking religion, this a historical faith/
its not a myth, Christ really Rose out of the grave/
from the abyss, and He did it too purely through faith/
which is a gift/
so you better hold on to your faith/
giving purely through grace/
the afterlife will be a better place/
our pain is minuscule compared to the day were raised/
and we've got the perfect vision to see his face in the clearest shade
