I got a daughter I ain't never really get to see
I tend to disagree with faith on what was meant to be
Even though I know my destiny is manifest
Before my testimony came I had to pass the test
Voice in my head keep on telling me I'm chosen
But at night I'm seeing visions of my body decomposing
I don't know how, but my life took a drastic turn
Before I had the chance to learn, it's like I crashed and burned
No use in running from the past cause you can't escape
I'm tryina change for the better, I hope it ain't too late
Consequences for sinning is all I'm living
I lost count of all the women that I slept with
The ones who loved me the most, I treated like a stranger
With total disregard, I even put they life in danger
Meanwhile I'm tryina keep up with my blessings
I swear to tell the whole truth, these are my confessions

[Hook] x 2
Everyday is a blessing, just open your eyes
What's the use of living, if you living a lie?
See I won't let this struggle bring the worst out of me
Gotta go through it, to bring the best out of me

This dream chasing is taking me from my family
Sometimes I think my own mama don't even understand me
From growing up in the hood with no benefits
Where niggas who go to jail, all say the innocent
Smoking my life away, hoping for brighter days
Dealing with pressure, that's like the force of a tidal wave
Caught in the system they say we don't deserve a chance
Society made me, a victim of circumstance
Surrounded by bullshit, nothing positive
I'm in need of a miracle, something's gotta give
The ultimate sacrifice, be willing to die
If you can't handle the truth, you must be living a lie
They wiping us all out, death by execution
They calling it evolution, it's time for a revolution
Try on my shoes and walk a mile in our situation
Find out the definition of trials and tribulation
My testimony!

[Hook] x 2
Everyday is a blessing, just open your eyes
What's the use of living, if you living a lie?
See I won't let this struggle bring the worst out of me
Gotta go through it, to bring the best out of me.
