I Think I Know How Jesus Felt

I think I know how Jesus felt,
nigga knew that he was blessed!
knew every truth he claimed and taught
would all be second guessed

I think I know how Jesus felt, ...
got fired from his job
began to hang out with some thugs, .
a gang most feared would rob

I think I know how Jesus felt
when the temple he turned out
got mad because he knew that wealth
is not what faiths' about

He told his partner Lazarus
his money was no good, ..
that camels pass through needle's eyes
before he'd see God's hood

I think I know how Jesus felt
the night that he got popped
his lookout partners went to sleep
while Judas's plea was copped

I think I know how Jesus felt
while dragged from judge to judge
condemned to death and torture
yet he never held a grudge

I think I know how Jesus felt,
cause I'm a black man too
and though 2000 years have passed, …
What's changed for me and you?
