[feat. God's Instrument & Lazarus]

[Verse 1: City]
God kept me when I barely knew He existed
Back in them days of foster care when things were sifted
Taken from moms, rehab she's admitted
Mother-Son relationship reduced to weekend visits
I spent many rugged nights sleepless, timid, annoyed
Sleep walking with knives from dreams so vivid and boy
I swear that basement had legions in it
Pops made no attempts to retrieve or visit the boy
Paranoid and stressed out tried filling that void
Loaner and burden to family few feelings of joy
Between the times when moms could visit the boy
I tried to keep my head to the sky poking my chest out
Like, "What reasons must I face this for? "
Alone so many nights on that mattress on that basement floor
Spider after spider racing the walls
Through it all I still thank the Lord, my testimony so know

[Hook: Lazarus]
I know you face stress I know the weights press
You're in His grace blessed don't lose your faith yet
You're not a paycheck your not a problem child
You're not alone, not a loaner, not a case just
Know you can make it through, Jesus forsaking you?
It won't happen! See His purpose is great for you
Building your testimony He's molding and shaping you
Keep your head to the sky faith in the King of Jews

[Spoken word piece (God's Instrument):]
It gets hard out here on your lonesome
I grew up in a family where family communicated and came to the conclusion that no one wants Him
So what was I supposed to do? Didn't have no other options so I turned to the drugs and the violence to help me make it through
Now I'm walking down the street with holes in my clothes and two left shoes
Moms always said I wasn't gon be nothin so why go to school?
Pops always said, "Don't work too hard for the another man" so getting a job was out of question
Never really knew right from wrong so there wasn't no second guessin
I always thought that having a child was a blessing
But I grew up a rough life cause I experienced child abuse, depression, and now I'm always stressin
Life got so hard that I couldn't escape
And ever since that first day at the hospital see I knew I was a mistake
You hear about people winning the lottery well why can't I get that big break
But I ain't asking for a million dollars just a hot shower, some clothes, and a little bit of food on my plate
Better yet if I had one wish I wouldn't wish for no hot shower, no clothes, or even no food on my plate
I would go back in time to the day I was born and ask them to erase that date
See none of this would have happened if I never was born
But God showed me a good lesson that you gotta stay strong when you're walking through that storm

[Verse 2: Shyne]
You can't imagine walking in my shoes
You can't imagine what I've seen you can't imagine what I been through
Home after home, School after School
See they keep calling me crazy they making me this way
It's no friends cause it's no time
And when I got time they up up and move me
Why do things have to be like this
They say, "Things happen for a reason" well what's the reason?
That my mom didn't want me, my pops didn't want me
It's cool I ain't trippin it ain't no love lost
But I still want them to see the man I've become
So if you listening come back

[Hook x2]
