Album:  Deeply Rooted
Song:   God
Typed by: Lil Hustle

If I had to play God, for a day
I would open up the gates, let the world see my face
Remove all doubt, from the ones without the faith
And put them on the path of the straight, a safe place
For the young to come outside, they wanna play
I'd let they mamas know, that they ok
And when y'all pray, I'll respond so that you all can see a sign
And answer every prayer, one at a time if I'm God huh
All the stabbings, and the wars would come to cease
My whole entire hood, would be at peace no more beef
And you could sleep, without the fears of being woke
By the sounds of sirens, screams of people being smoked
No more dope you don't need it, you been cured of all diseases
Your whole entire life, has been deleted
Please forgive me I was dreaming, and rudely interrupted by the demons
Laughing at the picture, I was seeing on the ceiling

[Chorus: John Legend]
Who listens, when we pray
Who pulls the strings of the wall, as we struggle today
Will you show your face
I don't wanna wait, wait wait till I die
Wait wait, wait for my eyes to close
Smile on your child so he knows, God has a face

Just imagine, if the devil had a day
If God had took a break and walked away, would you feel safe
If everything you loved, turned into hate
Will the dark angels, evil show you grace
Only to be eaten by a snake, one life one mistake
Be careful of the choices, that you make
Cause one day, you'll be standing on your feet and then the next
You underneath the sheet, greeting death
I wonder when I'm sleep is he there, sitting on my chest
Stealing breath, shortening my days even less
Lost souls never rest, a killer walks the street seeking flesh
An adolescent, hey she's depressed
A priest who confessed, a judge typing nigga in a text
Your honor, what the fuck did you expect
A father killed his son look at life, it's a mess
Just imagine what would happen, if the Lord up and left


When all that you believed in, was a lie
Are you willing to accept it, when you find out
Or try to reason with yourself, that's what it is when it's not
And all the whole while, it's been a plot
To poison our minds, and leave us blind to the fact
That if they keep us in the dark, on how they act
We'll react all surprised and not realize, this shit a trap
Thought religion was the answer, but the answer wasn't that
But church and these politics, they all full of crap
And it's a shame but, that's who we blaming it's for the scraps
So I don't knock it, I'm trying to put a black card in my wallet
But some dollars in my pocket, ain't the topic
Y'all need to stop it this is crazy, these lil' babies ticking time bombs
Walking round the lunch rooms, pulling guns
If the mama and the daddy, took the time to raise their son
Then the sister wouldn't be a mom, before she 21 huh
