Let Us Pray by Amon Re The 8th Sign

Verse
I pray for myself
Pray for others
Pray for my people
I pray to God that one day we'll be equal
Under the eye of big brother in the talon of the eagle
It's like police brutality is legal
They're rewriting the history book so what they teach you in schools
Is only a portion of the truth look they'll deceived you
Give you doubts and make you not believe in you
Or anything your people do
For centuries we have prayed for our enemies
I pray that unity in the black community
Is the number news story on my tv screen
Instead my did the next
life being taken by those who suppose to serve and protect
Let's take a stand
I never had to run from the Klu Klux Klan
So I shouldn't have to run from a policeman
Or is a synonym
Tell me what's the difference
Between a guilty conscience and a citizens innocence

Chorus
We are than just slaves on ship
But for our accomplishment praise don't exist
From the cradle to the cage or grave we are prey
So we pray and we pray the pain only itch
We don't pray for the poor but we pray to be rich
They don't pay a good wage so we're late for rent
Nigga rig just another way to say we invent
While they try to beat us down pray for our descent
Let us pray
Pray pray pray pray
Let us pray
Dear lord
Let us pray
I pray that God can forgive don't take my blessings away
Let us pray
Pray pray pray pray
Let us pray
Let us pray
Dear lord
Let us pray
I pray that God can forgive don't take my blessings away
Let us pray

Verse Two:
I open my eyes
And drop to my knees
Dear god can you please
Take this burden from me
I know you won't put more on me than I can take
This weight I've been carrying I'm bout to break
I'm gonna keep walking because I have faith
That what you have in store is more than think
More than I can fathom
More than I can imagine
More than the eye can see but I already have it
I'm already ready already to go and grab it
First you must walk the path and
Not just talk with passion
But back it with action
Fighting oppression
Until my last breathe
Last word last test
Last shall be first
The meek shall inherent the earth
For they are blessed
The streets shall may inherent your body and the heart that pump in your chest
But your soul still belongs to God your day of rest
Now that I lay me down to sleep
And I know what I sow is what I reap
Nothing more or less
All the good and bad I did or said
Since a little nappy head
To a grown dapper man
From ashes to ashes and dust to dust
At the end of it all God is my only judge

Chorus
We are than just slaves on ship
But for our accomplishment praise don't exist
From the cradle to the cage or grave we are prey
So we pray and we pray the pain only itch
We don't pray for the poor but we pray to be rich
They don't pay a good wage so we're late for rent
Nigga rig just another way to say we invent
While they try to beat us down pray for our descent
Let us pray
Pray pray pray pray
Let us pray
Dear lord
Let us pray
I pray that God can forgive don't take my blessings away
Let us pray
Pray pray pray pray
Let us pray
Let us pray
Dear lord
Let us pray
I pray that God can forgive don't take my blessings away
Let us pray
