Gangsta's Prayer

Rating: 2.8
Please Lord watch over my soul tonight
As I pass this alley’s light
M soul is lost
And I keep trying to make it at any cost
I’ve grown so far away from you
And now I don’t know what to do

I steal, Lie, and Cheat
But by and buy I still get beat
Work two jobs and go to school
But it doesn’t matter ‘cause here the gang’s rule
I used to know you so well
But now my life is a living hell

I have strayed so far off the path
And now I feel this everlasting wrath
So as I see the gang that robs me everyday
Please listen as I pray
‘Cause now I am as scared as can be
And now it’s to late to flee

As I see him pull the gun out of his pocket
My eyes feel like they’ll burst out of their sockets
As I see the trigger pulled
The world around me turns cold
The gun cries BANG
Now one less member of the gang
One red dot in the middle of his forehead
Only it was he who was mislead
One little order misunderstood
Life once again proves that
So Lord once again
Help me see you from within

As he turns around
Look at who he just found
Me, standing at the curve
Starts asking me what I deserve
Please let the bullet miss
And don’t let my life dismiss

Now with my life in despair
Please Lord here my last prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take

As for the sake of mice and men
Amen
Isabella Epona
