To The Judgement Day

IN YOUR THINKING, OUR FATHER, DON’T FORGET MY TESTIMONY,
IMMA SIGHT OF SOMEONE LEVERED UNDER ALL THAT’S UNDER HEAVEN.
MY OTHER SIDE IS WILLING BUT THERE IS ONE THAT’S STILL REBELLING,
YOU’VE BROKEN ME TOO MANY TIMES THAT I SEE NO GOOD IN HOLINESS.

SO YOU BURN ME UP IN FIRE AND EVERYTIME I HEAR YOUR DEMON
THAT EVERY NIGHT I GO RETIRE, I FEEL LIKE MOULDED ASHES.
IMMA BLAZING CINERARY AND I WONDER WHY THERE’S NO TRANSITION
YET FOR DECADES I'VE BEEN HOLDING ON FOR A DEAR SWEET ENIGMA.

MY SUICIDES ARE ENDLESS, EVER FAILING, WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?
AM I HOLDING ON FOR THE END DAYS FOR YOUR OTHER HELL TO TORTURE,
I ASK YOU FOR THE PRICE TO PAY AND YOU GIMME JUST THE SILENCE.
THAT’S HOW YOU ENDED KINGDOMS; DON’T FORGET I KNOW THE SCIENCE.

SO LIFT THE BADGE OF POVERTY LEST I GROW IN YOUR DEFIANCE,
I NEED A STACK OF HUNDREDS AND A HOME THAT WILL DEFINE ME,
THE CAR AND SISTER MAGGIE TO COMPLETE MY WHOLE AMBITION
THAN GIMME ALL THE CRAP I DON'T REMEMBER SOUGHTING AFTER.

ARE YOU GOD ALMIGHTY EAR BUDDING OFF MY PRAYERS?
ARE YOU SHUTTING UP YOUR HEAVEN TO GUARANTEE I NEVER MAKE IT?
YOU CONDEMN THESE SOULS TO THE DEVIL AND YOU PUNISH IN THE LONG RUN,
WHEN SUCH IS SEEN ON PEOPLE THEN WE TURN AND POINT CORRUPTION.

I KNOW I SEEM PERVERTED BUT I’M SICK OF KISSING ASSHOLES,
I’M SICK OF FALLING GIDDY AFTER CLIMBING JUST A METER
WHEN I PRAY TO THE ONE THAT’S ON HIGH AND THE DEVILS ARE NOURISHED
WHILE I HOLD MY BREATHE THAT IN THE END I WOULD’NT BE DEFAULTED.

I THOUGHT I PREACHED THE GOSPEL BUT ALL MY SERMONS WERE A FIDDLE,
WHEN I SHUN THE MIGHTY GOSPEL, AND YOU DASH THE DEVILS’ POWERS.
THE MONEY COMING SLOWLY IS THE CAUSE YOU HEAR ME CLAMMER,
YOU TOOK FROM ME WHAT I THANKED YOU FOR AND YOU GAVE IT TO MY KILLERS.

I AIN'T MEAN, I’M SIMPLY CRYING FOUL OVER ONE THAT MADE ME POOR,
THE ONE THAT BORE ME POOR AND THE ONE THAT RAISED ME POOR;
A LAUGHING STOCK IN CIRCLES, STILL APPEASING ATMOSPHERES.
WOULD I COME TO YOU IF I WANTED PLAYS? SO THINK BEFORE YOU JUDGE ME.
