A b e l - Hold on

Alright
This one's for the Man Upstairs, Are You listening?
Cos I've been struggling for some time
My life really needs fixing
Anxiety's got me slippin'
I don't know how I did this
Devil's taken ground
Which foot's really got me tripping
The spirit's tryna breathe
Demons have grip on my lungs
Pushing out air, all oxygen leaves
Guess that's what happens when you inhale
There's no light to be seen
What's detrimental to me?
Is knowing I've put all efforts aside
And stopped trying to believe
What's more crazy
Is that You would choose me to go ahead and lead them
This man's not qualified to step out and go reach them
His heart is too deceiving
I'm lost in the world
But You are the answer to sway the mischievous
My pockets have been bleeding
Cos in them was You (God) the very thing I needed
Till I miscarried YOUR SON in exchange for what America may feed us
Now who can flee this?
Tell 'em

I've seen all of your hurt for so long
(For so long)
The world's falling down
Can't go on
You try and try
But fall short
But not this time you will
Hold On (hold on!)
Hold On (hold on!)


The feeling of inadequacy
Builds in me gradually
Darker thoughts are leaping off balconies
With devilish wings sprouting out of spineless snails
Like how you gonna let them things fly my g?
Or take shape like papier-mâché and have weight be formed from some kind of origami
Never thought I'd be running away
Believe it or not
Your mind's not the safest place
Fear, Pride, Anger and Envy
Coursing into my veins
Now what can I say?
My own worst enemy is actually afraid
That if I manage through All of this suffering
I'll see better days
Exhaling my doubts
As I watch 'em singlehandedly fade
Chanting loud, "I'm No A Longer Slave!"
But a work in progress by the hands of this grace
Solely helping me to display
The same love that rescues and pushes on
Knowing there isn't much too long
But with Good News telling you to Hold on

I've seen all of your hurt for so long
(For so long)
The world's falling down
Can't go on
You try and try
But fall short
But not this time you will
Hold On (hold on!)
Hold On (hold on!)
