KENDRICK LAMAR lyrics : "Faith"

I take a sip of Hennessy and then get pissy drunk
I ain't a drinker, I'm a thinker, call it what you want
But if you turn your back, know that you just missed your chance

To witness the realest %#@! that's ever been known to men
I found myself losing focus at a Sunday service
Embarrassed so I start questioning God, "What is my purpose? "

He said to live the way he did, that's all he want from me
Spread the word and witness, he rose on the first Sunday
I said alright, enthused that my lord gave a listen

I opened my Bible in search to be a better Christian
And this from a person that never believed in religion
But %#@!, my life is so $#[email protected] up, man; I can't help but give in

I'm giving testimonies to strangers I never met
Hopped on the poor pit and told them how I was truly blessed
Felt like I'm free from all my sins when the service was over

Walked out the church, then got a card that my homie was murdered
Then lost my faith again


Single black parent from Compton raising children of 4

That's 4 innocent [email protected]$(s cause Papa, they don't know
Her day consists of working back and forth with babysitters
Can't find no one to watch her kids, so she pay her sister

Her baby daddy ain't 'bout %#@!, that ^!$$% ain't 'bout %#@!
Spilt his daughter milk just to cop a new outfit
She pray to God every night hoping that he'll mature

And maybe one day his kids, something that he'll live for
Baby wanna go back to school but she need some help
Because it's hard trying to pay the bills when you by yourself

She thought about credit card scams, until she heard a voice
It said the Devil is a lie, make a better choice
And so it's back to McDonald's and every month dealing

With those crazy $$# people at the county building
Looked to the heavens and asked them to make a better way
Then got a letter in the mail, lost her section 8

Then lost her faith again


I had dreams of holding a 9 milla to raise killa
X and Y's, my eyes fill up

Each day it gets more realer, orangutan's bang like gorillas
It's jungle when the ^!$$%'s ensue
The rat's lurking, the vulture's circling the surface

Cat's lying through they teeth, my ^!$$% didn't deserve it
I flirted with the ideal of caressing the steel
To make karma come faster then she normally will

It's I'll to see my faith try and leave me
It's so hard to get it, to get rid of it, it's easy
I'm tryna reach cloud 9, that's what my ^!$$%'s 'bout

But it never rain in California, unless the pistols is out
Until then, my feet planted on the ground, shadowboxing my conscience
Until my faith start responding, and if I get no answer, just know I tried

I should have never looked into His Son's eyes


This for my people that stressing whenever time's is hard
Your mind's slipping, wondering, "Is there really a God? "

Knowing you shouldn't think that way and trying to freeze your brain
But whenever there's pain, that feeling forever remains
We can't believe what we can't see and reality seems stronger than prayer

Cause you tried to change your life, and now you live in a wheelchair
And your son was born with cancer and he live in urgent care
At the tender age of 12, and you feel that no one cares

Searching for answers, that's human nature, you ain't in the wrong
Just know when you feeling that way there's [?] in the roll
I watched people I know pray and catch the Holy Ghost

And wonder why I ain't ever caught that feeling before
Maybe they know him better, or I don't know no better
Well, what I do know, is that he's real and he lives forever

So the next time you feel like your world's about to end
I hope you studied because he's testing your faith again

I'd rather not live like there isn't a God
Then die and find out there really is
Think about it
