Kanye West – Wash Us In The Blood lyrics
[Intro]
A roaring lion, walketh about, seekin' whom he may devour
(Ronny J, please turn me up)

[Verse 1: Kanye West]
Take some, rain, nonstop, rain don't want war
Rain come, rain come
Come shine, come rain, come up
Southside, let it bang
Outside, let it rain
Rain down on a pain
Rain down on the slain
Rain down for my mom (Ooh)
Rain down on the farm (Ah)
Shower us with your love (Huh)
Wash us in the blood (Ooh)
Drop this for the thugs (Ah)
Know I grew up in the mud (Huh)
The top is not enough
Wash us in the blood (Ah)


[Bridge]
Is there anybody here? Huh
Is there anybody here? Ooh
That can save no matter how much he player-hate? Hahaha
It was the blood that, ooh
It was the blood that, God
It was the blood that cleansed me, ha
It was the, ooh

[Pre-Chorus: Kanye West]
Shower down on us (Ah)
Wash us in the blood (Huh)
Wash us in the blood (Ooh)
Whole life bein' thugs (Hah)
No choice, sellin' drugs (Huh)
Southside, what it does? (God)
Rain down on us (Ah)
Genocide what it does (Huh)
Slavery what it does (Ooh)
Rain down on us (Ah)
Whole life sellin' drugs (Huh)

[Chorus: Kanye West]
Wash us in the blood (Ooh)
Wash us in Your blood (Ah)
Wash us in the blood (And as we live in this evil and crooked and jezebelic world)
Wash us in the blood
Wash us in the blood

[Bridge: Kanye West and Travis Scott]
Holy Spirit, come down (Come take)
Holy Spirit, come down (Come down)
Holy Spirit, help now (Way down)
Holy Spirit, help now (Uh, uh)
Holy Spirit, come down (Spirit)
Holy Spirit, come down (Ayy)
Holy Spirit, help now (Come down)
Holy Spirit, help now (Yeah)

[Verse 2: Kanye West and Travis Scott]
Wash us in the blood (Blood)
Whole life bein' thugs (Hah)
No choice, sellin' drugs (Ooh)
Genocide what it does (Ah)
Mass incarc' what it does (Huh)
Cost a cause what it does (Ooh)
'Nother life bein' lost (Woah)
Let it off, set it off
Execution, thirty states (That's right)
Thirty states still execute (Ah)
Thou shall not kill, I shall not spill, Nextels at the rendezvous (Ooh)
We dodgin' time in the federal (Get 'em)
Squad box you in like a sectional
We walk through the glass and the residue (Ooh)
Now look what we headed to (Ah)

[Chorus: Kanye West]
Rain down on us (Huh)
Rain down on us (Ooh)
Wash us in the blood (Hah)
Wash us in the blood (Huh)
Holy Spirit, come down (Ooh)
Holy Spirit, come down (Hah)
And they tryna control Ye (Huh)
They want me to calm down (Ooh)

[Verse 3: Kanye West]
They don't want me to Kanye
They don't want Kanye to be Kanye
They wanna sign a fake Kanye
They tryna sign a calm Ye
That's right, I call 'em Calm-Ye
But don't take me the wrong way (God)
But don't take me the wrong way (Hah)
'Cause God took me a long way (Huh)
They wanna edit the interviews (We)
They wanna take it to interludes (Me)
Cut a whole sentence to interlude (Together)
You know that it's fake if it's in the news (Ooh)
So I let it fly when I'm in the booth (Ah)
The devil a liar and I been the truth
Livin' 'cause nobody livin'
And nobody gettin' it, doin' it different (Ah)

[Chorus: Kanye West]
Rain down on us (Huh)
Holy Spirit, come down (Ooh)
Holy Spirit, come down (Ah)
We need You now
Wash us in the blood (Ooh)
Whole life bein' thugs (Ah)
No choice, sellin' drugs (God)
Genocide what it does
Slavery what it does

    Was us in the blood is a biblical reference, in the old testaments for anything to be deemed worthy or entering the tent of worship it had to be sanctified by washing in the blood of a sacrificial lamb. Jesus Christ being the ultimate sacrifice washing in his blood is a metaphor to receive salvation from Christ and God. This son is a prayer for himself, his family and his people. It's prayer for peace for salvation and redemption. Also, it is calling of the holy spirit to be there to come down and be a part of his life. At the end of the song he is calling out those who are criticizing him and speaking falsely about him and also about how he is overcome with the spirit and that he is not the same Kanye.

    There is no true sign to whom's blood he is speaking of. Just because they are throwing the Holy Spirit around, God, and using a biblical reference, without fully referring to Yeshua, Jesus Christ. There is no way of telling what blood, the occult drinks blood, we need to be discerning the truth of God and the gospel. John 15:18-25, we will be hated for proclaiming Jesus name and doing the will of Elohim, God, Kanye is speaking while also speaking out about his wealth that he is gain through this. We must be discerning and praying for the eyes to see truth and past the lies.
