She said I have to watch what I say, “don’t want to lose any endorsements.”

I guess I can’t say what I want to say, only what “the Hand” Okays.

You know what I think about that?

The Lord Giveth; The Lord Taketh Away.

 

The homie said not to be honest with these flings.

Keep em’ running after hope, keep getting in them jeans.

You know what I think about that?

The Lord Giveth; The Lord Taketh Away.

 

My family said don’t do sedition.

Don’t want to get bagged up and thrown into a dungeon, no charge, no trial.

You know what I think about that?

The Lord Giveth; The Lord Taketh Away.

 

The Church says put down Machiavelli and the 48.

If it’s not in the Bible, forget about it.

You know what I think about that?

The Lord Giveth; The Lord Taketh Away.

“Sometimes if you want to get rid of the gun, then you have to pick the gun up.”
