"I found God, on the corner of First and Amistad
Where the West was all but won
All alone, smoking his last cigarette
I said where have you been?
He said ask anything"

Chorus:

Yeah, stuck in this place where we can never leave
He looked at me and said it's money over everything (everything)
Came together when I got birds to fly
That's why I got these bad hoes thinkin' these nerds is fly
So where were you when I'm alone?
And yeah I know were poor but we richer than a lot of folk
Who would have thought that I would ever eat again?
When it was hard I told god that I would never speak to him

Verse 1:

I say, we all need to be saved - I'm prayin or I'm sayin' grace
Children of a Lesser God - Angel with a dirty face
No hope for the poor – it's the rich is who the system saves
Niggas go to prison, - while police increase the murder rates
Thinkin' why we forsaken? - and then I doubt God and
Then I Found God - He said - thank you for bein patient
Fuck that - livin' to die - to know that I could be killed
It's hard to be iced up with gucci God - poverties real
My stomach, - it hurts this morning - a warning - that death is certain
And here it floods, - the only thing that keeps churches from burning
So they closed another school - ain't no jobs - I mean you owe us this
Cuz they be sellin' drugs to kids - and everybody knows the shyt
Maybe we will all just off each other - or get close to it
The sun never shines - ain't somebody 'ppose to notice this
And it even like we tried to fight - And Ayana Jones just died tonight
But that's alright cuz I think

Chorus:

Yeah, stuck in this place where we can never leave
He looked at me and said it's money over everything (everything)
Came together when I got birds to fly
That's why I got these bad hoes thinkin' these nerds is fly
So where were you when I'm alone?
And yeah I know were poor but we richer than a lot of folk
Who would have thought that I would ever eat again?
When it was hard I told god that I would never speak to him

Verse 2:

We got, choices to make - go hungry or keep the lights on
Defeated - and we've been given nothin to shine on
No one can save us - keep my niggas in cuffs
I recollect we use to ball - now just livin's enough
Plus – there's no father figures - figures, why we're lead a stray
Bishop - they say he twisted so I question this collection plate
Hate that my city went from ugly to disgustin',
To know - you're at the top - and only Heaven's right above it
Disgusted - wondering God - where are you when I'm alone?
In the business of buying souls - only fuck with those who sell em
Tell em - strip 'em of pride - change the station - cover your eyes
The Elephant's in the room - the devil is a lie
But I, feel I have the right to fight for my spot
He say why you stand alone - I say it's lonely on top
And I Hate to say - that people die in the struggle everyday
But they will kill me anyway - so I guess it's an even trade
But hey

Chorus:

Yeah, stuck in this place where we can never leave
He looked at me and said it's money over everything (everything)
Came together when I got birds to fly
That's why I got these bad hoes thinkin' these nerds is fly
So where were you when I'm alone?
And yeah I know were poor but we richer than a lot of folk
Who would have thought that I would ever eat again?
When it was hard I told god that I would never speak to him
(Repeated)
