If everyone else had my eyes
Then, who I am wouldn't be a surprise
Just because I'm locked up don't mean I'm fucked up in the game
Just to think the motha dirt they trying to throw on my name
Get arrested getting arrested don't make me guilty
But by the time I make it to court
The media dun' killed me
Gotta good heart but we all do wrong
I really mean well but I'm going too strong
You say I'm rehabilitated, but I still can't vote
You say I paid my debt but I still can't vote
Gotta pay taxes but I still can't vote
Come on dawg yall stay trying to keep a nigga broke
You just as crooked as us, fuck you trying to say
Cause once I pay that dough, the charges go away
Forget about it - It's ok!
Cause Imma walk over here and let the lord pave my way э Aight

Choir: That I
Morrison: That I live

Morrison: Pray to God
Choir: That it
Morrison: Has mercy
