CHORUS

He paid that cost (that's what I believe in)
Up on that cross (That's what I believe in)
Forgave my sins (That's what I believe in)
And He rose again (That's what I believe in)
They pierced his side (That's What I believe In)
For you and I (That's what I believe in)
Forgave my sins (That's what I believe in)
He coming back again (That's what I believe in)

By the time I was 8, I had a trial of my faith
already knew what I would do, what kind of job I would take

teased by classmates, who told me
"God is a fake"
but I knew, what was true,
despite the whispers and dissin'
cause they were up in service every sunday
just like the regular Christians
relating religion to urban mysticism
and superstition
and trying to convince me
that they controlled the way they're living
like a Philistine
cutting his nose to spite his face
like a guillotine
from the land of dealers, fiends,
killer teens
Michelangelo couldn't paint a realer scene
20 years later and serenity is still a dream
but back to the topic, back to the block
we ain't have much but learned how to
work with what we got
and not long after I came up out the sac
pop dukes pulled a Terry Mac
Disappearing Act
but, i aint mad at that, at night I sat
in a dark room
begging for God to bring him back
but he never did come, by age 21
wonder what I'd done
to make him abandon his son
how we get to this, it's kinda ridiculous
to keep the lights on, momma work triple shifts
then she wonder why we not close
i see the babysitter more than I see my folks
is this the American Dream?
then send me to Mexico
can we go? no?
schedule's not flexible
everyday my momma got up to leave,
i cried, but she told me you gotta believe

so I (BELIEVE)
It'll get better
(BELIEVE)
we get through it
(BELIEVE)
God's real busy,
(BELIEVE)
but He gone get to it
(BELIEVE)
First you pray for it
(BELIEVE)
then you wait for it
(BELIEVE)
Gotta have faith for it

(That's what I believe in)

He paid that cost (that's what I believe in)
Up on that cross (That's what I believe in)
Forgave my sins (That's what I believe in)
And He rose again (That's what I believe in)
They pierced his side (That's What I believe In)
For you and I (That's what I believe in)
Forgave my sins (That's what I believe in)
He coming back again (That's what I believe in)


I still remember the last conversation we had
you were going OT down to Pop-Pop's pad
in SC
just a routine trip, you'd be back in a flash
while me and Jon Bap chillin
listening to raps
you aint give me no crap, just asked did I wanna go
I was busy writing so respectfully I said no
yo,
who wouldve known that this would be your fate
that an assassin would've been lying in wait
next morning Vince told me that you were shot
I was beyond shocked,
thought that my heart had just stopped
everyday i pray for the chance to do it over
a chance to roll with you and face it like a soldier
God told me to stay, and I begrudgingly listened
could've been dead instead
or dead in addition...
I'm living proof that the Son (Sun) can't chill
still here like an unpaid bill
and that's real

I (BELIEVE)
that everything occurs for a reason
(BELIEVE)
suffering only last for one season
(BELIEVE)
stop pleadin'
(BELIEVE)
and start heeding
(BELIEVE)
and keep reading
That's what I believe in...

That's what I believe in...
That's what I believe in...
That's what I believe in...
(adlibs until end)
