I believe you didn't know you were trapped
He set a goal to control the people's souls through the rap
It's like we're frozen in sap
My people know there's something missing
So they throw in the gap
A substitution for religion
In addition to the drugs
Should I mention the clubs?
They're claiming nothing is changing but in my vision it was
The way of living is tough but thank the Lord
And I'm thinking
Life's enough to be thankful for
People can't ignore the consecrated Holy Spirit
You know when you're wrong?
That inner voice?
I know you hear it
Can we listen to a song that isn't violent?
Or bragging 'bout sex and monumental finance
