Welcome to hard times, back again like it's never been. for the first time it
seems to mess with my head. when i realize what it takes, can i realate. with
whatever, but never will it drive me to hate. could i be the next guy that
you take before i wake. now i lay me down to sleep, eyes tight when i pray.
this here is real life, circumstances make you think. should i be counting my
blessings, the next second my eyes blink.

[chorus:] here in the southtown you know that kid don't play. put it down
on the streets, will i see another day. if i make it back this time, gots to
hold what is mine. and thank god that i made it alive.

One love it's easier said than done. can i rise above anything that gets in
my way?. like words you say, you let your tongue get loose. and when push
comes to shove, i'm not used to walking away. i keep on looking up, because
these times are getting tough. tomarrows gone and its the same o' song.
father fill my cup, give me strength to power up. a life to shine, you're the
diamond in this rough.

[chorus:] [chorus:] here in the southtown you know that kid don't play.
put it down on the streets, will i see another day. if i make it back this
time, gots to hold what is mine. and thank god that i made it alive.

Babylon Breathe Babylon

I see you people babylon and on and on
Graven images, golden idols and false icons
I'm seeking wisdom like Solomon
But my antenae keeps on picking up evil transmissions
At headquarters I receive my mission
Blow up the ruler of the air like nuclear fission
So I analyze my weapons, laser guided rifles that shoot spiritual wisdom
I think I see enemy warriors,
Fragile heathens tryin' to run stuff like mayors
So with brotha's that snuff punks,
I set up time bombs to destroy the strong holds of Babylon

Babylon Breathe Babylon

We be tribes under grace, a righteous minority
Decadent culture make you forget your spiritual priority
Back down by the movement, soldiers who will serve ya
Open to be used by God, destroy you like Medo-Persia
Jewel of all kingdoms, live evil, purified Hurrah take you down
Don't look back, overthrown you like Sodom and Gomorrah arm of the law
Guilty of all crimes I be like the great Prophet Isiah
Predict your fall over 150 times, got rhymes you could never use
For the purpose you be using, I'll dance over your fields
Present day Iraq still lies in ruins lies,
Schemes, backstab persuasions bumrushed
Get crushed by us, this rescue invasion

[Chorus 8x]

Look to the sky, heed the warning
The shadow is coming, the shadow is coming

The plagues are coming, the plagues are coming
I feel the breath of the Death Beast

Misled bureaucracy, full of hypocrisy
I gotta steel pulse, looking for a true democracy
Destruction, now your walls have fallen
Just sitting here waiting for the train to Zion

Sit down in the dust, Babylon without a throne to call your own is 47:1
The city has fallen, she has fallen golden images of it's god
Lie shattered on the ground

Brothers and Sisters 
We're gonna draw the line to forget about the problems abroad 
But, in the end, we all have problems of our own 
Gangs, Crack, Racism, and many people don't have hope 
It probably don't matter much to you 
In the struggles, the time that we live 
But, you don't know your future, so you better take time to give 
Who's gonna draw the line? 
We're gonna draw the line 
Together, forever and ever 
You must be thinking, I can't do a thing 
But look at me, I help when I sing 
Where man can make a difference 
Like Ceasar Chaves and Doctor King 
We all have the ability to release a positive capability 
Where the youth is our responsibility 
It's time to take a stand 
Who's gonna draw the line? 
We're gonna draw the line 
Together, forever and ever 
Brothers and sisters 
Where gonna draw the line to make people change 
Yo I'm optimistic, down with positivity 
But yo I'm realistic, this line will be drawn over night 
This is a struggle so prepare to fight 
Who's gonna draw the line? 
We're gonna draw the line

I cry why O' why did my mommy have to die?
Too many questions, no answers confuses my mind
Like what did I do, what did she do, who's to blame
No one understands what I'm going through
So how can I trust what I can't touch and can't see
Believe in love and she's in front of me
Silence in your eyes, my heart so cold
No time for goodbyes, then you leave me alone

So what do I do accept it and carry on?
Or release my anger, until it's gone
Show you and this world exactly how I feel death in full color
It's never been so real, It's been me and you, It's always been me and you
No matter what we faced, we always made it through
Get out of this dream, do what I gotta do
No one can take your place and I don't want them to
If I could take your place, I would, I would take your pain
Just to see you smile and say my name,
Just to hear you laugh and hear you cry
I don't understand, I don't know why

I've never been it this state of mind, life just don't make sense
With you I could move mountains, right now I'm helpless
I guess, you always knew what was best
Believed in your God, til the very last breath
You showed me how strong you can be
If Jesus saved your life, could he do it for me?
I'll lay down my life for you and for Him
Believe God's promise, I'm gonna see you again

Lord here I am, but I am no one, Believe in Your name
Believe in your Son, if you meet me here I will wait on you
Sacrifice and serve, do what you want me to
I'll take it day by day, and sit at your feet
You are strong when I am weak
I seek to keep from going under
Until I hold you again, I'll always wonder

Why did my mommy have to Die?
