How long will this take, how much can I go through? My heart, my soul aches, I don't know what to do. I bend but don't break, and somehow I get through. Cause I have You, and if I had to...
How long, how long? How long will this take?

Yeah, uh, hey yo my baby sister died and I barely know why
I'd a lost my religion and I don't apologize
As far as I'm concerned it was birth and my demise
Livin' by the law scared not to pay tithes
Snatched off my disguise, tired of living a lie
You ain't gotta hit the block to see the innocent die
Church heard you dissin' Mary Mary but you'll ride for Kirk (Franklin), come to think that's kinda backwards cause he tried it first
And much worse all the bickering aside
Us instead of the Spirit, everybody tryin' to drive us
And that's the reason why the miracles dry up, tie up
To the same brothers that He died for
Too many rappers got Scripture on their lips
But their hearts vacated on the ship
And brag about how they graduated seminary
And act like they the only ones qualified to spit
Lord tell me, how long?

How long, how long? How long will this take?

Yeah, this is revolutionary rap, ya'll in rebellion
Was taught in a church, got me feelin' like an alien
An outcast, thrown out, stoned, and lonely
Word to my wife I had to drop a couple homies
Friends turn to enemies, ask John Kennedy
Trying to make change, find death in divinity
But Mamma, she intercede, angels surround me
Lost in deception the truth finally found me
I got it, I've seen it, the Scriptures, it's meaning
Inside, I'm gleamin', so I'm glad to sing it
Harder than I ever had, team with my better half
Brain kept us outta that, that's what I'm aimin' at
Cock back, bangin' at, throwin' up gang signs
3's in the air till I see 'em everywhere
Till it's evident the Trinity is here
Regardless of the penalty for Christ, I don't care how long

How long, how long? How long will this take?
How long will this take, how much can I go through? My heart, my soul aches, I don't know what to do. I bend but don't break, but somehow I get through. Cause I have You, and if I had to...
