C-Murder - Lord Help Us

Our world is hopeless, and we have no where to go
Our children are hungry, and we can't feed the poor
Were really hopeless, spread some love before
And love that and hold in
Lord I really miss my friends
Lord please help us

Now as I walk through the streets I see many people under pressure
'Cause uh life ain't easy and you know this world gon' test ya
My daddy told me see one day you gon' be faced with this problem
And you and only you must find the knowledge to solve it

My momma said lord gives us tests to measure our faith
And if you really believe in god, then you shall smile on judgement day
'Cause at the crossroads ain't no hunger, and every man the same color
And when it's my time to open 'em gates cause uh

I really miss my brother
And you the only man that can judge me
So please guide me to the right direction
And why can't I put this gun up and use my bible for protection

And it's an everyday struggle, don't expect nothing to change in a week
But lord help us in this hopeless world
'Cause I don't want to die in the streets


Now I done been stop shedding tears, now my eyes bleed when they cry
And I never understand why, everybody gotta die
And everything that's born gotta go, and I really think that's a shame
And I'm so tired of reminiscin'

Trying to put a face to a name
You put my grandfather in my life, and then you took him away
Yeah, big daddy used to drink but uh, he gave me a place to stay
And many kids starving overseas, and even right here on my block

My auntie told me in the year 2000 that the world was gon' stop
Now I don't want to question you lord, but is violence really the answer
And if not, then how come so many innocent people diein' of the cancer
Now revelations say the world gon' end, but the world ain't over yet
And it's up to us to move on, but in our hearts we'll never forget


They say god created man, and put man on this earth
And then came woman from there, and from there, there was birth
And ever since eve gave adam the apple, the bible's like the spell
And introduced mankind, not only to heaven, but a place called hell

Even though we try to repent, it's too many gangstas taking us down
My cousin tried to leave the streets, and now he laying in the ground
And jesus died for our sins, but I wonder if he wasted his time
'Cause it's 1999, and this world is still blind

Now I don't want to lose my freedom, cause I'm this close to making it big
Now I don't know if I'm a make a difference
But I just want to be there for my kids
Now that's a hopeless situation, when will it end, I don't know
But lord help cause your children, ain't got no where else to go

[Chorus: x 3]
