Lyric "Dying Of Thirst"

[Verse 1]
Tired of running, tired of hunting
My own kind but retiring nothing
Tires are steady screeching, the driver is rubbing
Hands on the wheel, who said we wasn't
Dying of thirst, dying of thirst, dying of thirst


[Verse 2]
Dope on the corner, look at the coroner
Daughter is dead, mother is mournin' her
Strayed bullets, AK bullets
Resuscitation was waiting patiently but they couldn't
Bring her back, who got the footage?
Channel 9, cameras is looking
It's hard to channel your energy when you know you're crooked
Banana clip, split his banana pudding
I'm like Tre, that's Cuba Gooding
I know I'm good at
Dying of thirst, dying of thirst, dying of thirst


[Verse 3]
How many sins? I'm running out
How many sins? I lost count
Dreams of balling like Spalding
But only shotty bounce
The reaper calling, I'm cottonmouth
Money is power (money is power)
Yours is ours (yours is ours)
Lay with a snitch, die with a coward
Hope we get rich, hope we can tower
Over the city with vanity with the music louder
The same song, a black flower
I'll show you how to dye your thirst, dye your thirst, dye your thirst


[Verse 4]
What are we doing? Who are we fooling?
Hell is hot, fire is proven
To burn for eternity, return of the student
That never learned how to live righteous but how to shoot it
Tired of running, choirs is hummin'
Tell us to visit, we lying 'bout comin'
Now back to business, loading the guns in
Back of the Buick, your hood is feuding, and the beef is bubblin'
It's no discussion
Hereditary, all of my cousins
Dying of thirst, dying of thirst, dying of thirst


[Verse 5]
Too many sins, I'm running out
Somebody send me a well for the drought
See, all I know, is taking notes
On taking this life for granted, granted, if he provoke
My best days, are stress days
(Lord, forgive me for all my sins for I not know...)
My best days, are stress days
Say "Fuck the world," my sex slave
Money, pussy and greed; what's my next crave
Whatever it is, know it's my next grave
Tired of running, tired of running
Tired of tumbling, tired of running
Tired of tumbling
Back once my momma say
"See a pastor, give me a promise
What if today was the rapture, and you completely tarnished
The truth will set you free, so to me be completely honest
You dying of thirst, you dying of thirst
So hop in that water, and pray that it works"


[Skit/Outro]
“Fuck! I’m tired of this shit! I’m tired of fuckin' runnin', I’m tired of this shit! That’s my brother, homie!”("Young man, come talk to me! Is that what I think that is?)
I know that's not what I think that is
Why are you so angry? See you young men are dying of thirst
Do you know what that means? That means you need water, holy water
You need to be baptized, with the spirit of The Lord
Do you want to receive God as your personal savior? Okay, repeat after me
"Lord God, I come to you a sinner" (Lord God, I come to you a sinner)
"And I humbly repent for my sins" (And I humbly repent for my sins)
"I believe that Jesus is Lord" (I believe that Jesus is Lord)
"I believe you raised him from the dead" (I believe you raised him from the dead)
"I would ask that Jesus come into my life" (I would ask that Jesus come in my life)
"And to be my Lord and Savior" (And to be my Lord and Savior)
"I receive Jesus to take control of my life" (I receive Jesus to take control of my life)
"And that I may live with him from this day forward" (And that I may live with him from this day forward)
"Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me with your precious blood" (Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me with your precious blood)
"In Jesus name, amen" (In Jesus name, amen)
"Alright now, remember this day: the start of a new life
Your REAL life."
