[Verse]
Even with my eyes open it’s a dark place
Even when I smile it’s a dark face
Who’s the dummy in the mirror? Yeah I hate myself
Who’s the one I wanna kill? I wanna kill myself
Could it be hope in this last breath?
Could it be hope if I take this step?
Nah, I’m just tripping
I need to shake it off. I need to stand up
I need to pray it off. I can’t give up
Need to walk this road with my head up
Need to walk this road with my hands up
Need to walk this road with the Holy Spirit
Need to walk this road with my faith in it
Need to walk this road like I’m gonna win it
Need to fast all night ‘til I see the truth
Need to read all night to get close to You
Need to praise all night to get close to You
Yeah, to get close to You

[Bridge]
Have you ever needed rest but ya couldn’t sleep?
Room full of silence, but ya can’t think?
All the air that you need, but ya can’t breathe?
Seeing twenty-twenty, but ya can’t see?
Gotta ask myself can ya hear me now
You don’t need they claps gon’ take a bow
Gon’ take a deep breath gon’ head and smile
They say pain comes for a little while
Joy never seems to come on my block
Santa Clause in the hood, not on my block
Happy married in the hood, not on my block
Naw, not on my block
Time to pack up from this old street
Move closer to the Lord ‘cause He loves me
I’m a soldier of the Lord, thought they knew me
I’m a truth teller, stronger than a OG
If I write a dark song can ya hear me now?
If I talk about death can ya feel me know?
If I cry on a single would you buy it now?
If I told you I was broke would you book me now?

[Verse]
People rather just die ‘cause they can’t cry
And you still can’t tell ‘em that you’re sorry?
And you still can’t tell ‘em that you’re wrong?
Yeah I’m praying for you
No love in your heart let’s pray it in
No joy in your heart let us sing it in
No peace in your heart let Him bring it in
Let Him bring it in
Put the dark down, don’t you give up
Get that bible open and keep your chin up
Let the angels sing to you with their wings up
Let the Lord speak to you with His healing touch
Let the Lord love on you with His healing touch
Let the Lord guide you with His healing touch
Yeah, with His healing touch

[Bridge]
Have you ever needed rest but ya couldn’t sleep?
Room full of silence, but ya can’t think?
All the air that you need, but ya can’t breathe?
Seeing twenty-twenty, but ya can’t see?
Gotta ask myself can you hear me now
You don’t need they claps gon’ take a bow
Gon’ take a deep breath gon’ head and smile
They say pain comes for a little while
Joy never seems to come on my block
Santa Clause in the hood, not on my block
Happy married in the hood, not on my block
Naw, not on my block
Time to pack up from this old street
Move closer to the Lord ‘cause He loves me
I’m a soldier of the Lord, thought they knew me
I’m a truth teller, stronger than a OG
If I write a dark song can they hear me now?
If I talk about death can you feel me know?
If I cry on a single would you buy it now?
If I told you I was broke would you book me now?

[Outro]
Get the tears off your face, toughen up chief
You gon’ graduate this, cap and gown please
You gon’ see it to the end, here’s the finish line
