Everlast – Black Jesus lyrics

They call me white devil, Black Jesus,
Heaven closes, Hell freezes,
Ego's trippin', scripts keep flippin'
Bloods keep bloodin', Crips keep crippin'
Time keeps slippin' and I keep fallin'
I can't see but I hear them callin', ballers ballin'
Players playin', haters fightin', righteous praying
Dawn breaking, Manhattan keeps making, Brooklyn keeps takin'
Shook ones keep shakin', no time for fakin'
Know what I mean ain't choppin' no pies, just risin' like cream
If you're digging the scene, if you feelin' the vibes, throw your hands
In the air, scream out you're alive, singin' na na nana na na
Singin' na na nana na na (Repeat)

Black Jesus, White Moses, heaven freezes, hell closes
B. Boy poses and punk rock chicks, the kids are all right
But I need my fix
If you're diggin' the mix, if you're feelin' the drugs
If you're keepin' it real
If you're livin' like thugs, I spit kisses and hugs like 45 slugs
Come back on the one and kiss my love gun
Gotta look that will kill, a voice that will carry, half a dozen women
I think I wanna marry, trouble on my mind, refusin' to lose
Still I've gotta find someone to abuse
So won't you run spread the news
Help say the word and jump the fuck back and act like you heard


They call me white devil, Black Jesus, heaven closes
Hell freezes, Black Jesus, White Moses, heaven freezes
Hell closes, singin' na na nana na na singin' (Repeat)

They call me white sinner, black martyr, live wire
Fire starter, jungle brother, red neck cracker, freak of nature
New world slacker, s** junkie lookin' for a dealer
You can play the leaper girl and I can play the healer
Shit is only getting realer baby haven't you heard that the
Bird, bird, bird, yes the bird is the word
They go one for the trouble, two for the time, three for my homies
And four for the dimes, singin' lemons to the lime
Till the break of dawn
Excuse me every six minutes Everlast you're on, and they go on and on
Like a rolling stone, baby anywhere I lay my hat is my home


They call me white devil, Black Jesus, heaven closes
Hell freezes, Black Jesus, White Moses, heaven freezes
Hell closes, singin' na na nana na na singing (Repeat)
