Bethesda

Sho Baraka
Yeah, I feel the pain of a 70's soul single who just saw the death of one of it's soul leaders/
I wanna sell records but yet I feel eager to write political tunes that give a certain finger/
To talk to God they told me to climb a mountain/
I'm thirsty for His revelation where's the colored fountain?/
As grace rains on the concrete garden I guess it's common sense now that that's water for chocolate/
Mommas tried to keep their babies off the street police got rap sheets so ya kids gettin beat, beat/
Hit after hit video in the crowd and still not enough evidence/
I'm on my Harriet Tubman maybe my sojourner/
More like Martin Luther the King than Nat Turner/
I roll with a team of newly redeemed sinners that know we have to lose our life to be winners/ (live)


Clouds will come the rain will fall
Sometimes sun won't shine at all
From pain inside cries will soar
But I'm hopin' that you hold all things together


Sho Baraka
Yeah, every pastor ain't corrupt, every church don't suck/
But the people are thinkin' who will speak for us/
A nation of people who bleach their skin/
Keep fightin' my bro, you'll find that peace within/
Or that young brown sister with a pure gold voice/
Or that unborn child who has had no choice/
Third world pains, kids dyin of aids/
Abort a child cuz 2 adults had childish ways/
Pretty offensive - I'm still in the zone/
I have a Chris Rock goal - keep my daughter off the pole/
That's two-fold - stripping and politickin'/
Cuz to me homie I don't really see much difference/
Promise a bunch of stuff you never get/
Exit with the same concerns you came in with/
To all my people who grindin - what up tho?/
To all my people who dyin - what up ghost?/
To all my people who grindin - what up tho?/
To all my people who dyin - what up ghost?/


Clouds will come the rain will fall
Sometimes sun won't shine at all
From pain inside cries will soar
But I'm hopin that you hold all things together


Sho Baraka
Born in Alberta, died in Atlanta/
Had 2 parents plus raised by gramma/
Told I was different cuz I spoke with a grammer that was proper/
Cuz my momma tried to raise me with manners/
I'm a lover, I'm a husband, I'm an artist, I'm a father/
I'm a fighter, a believer, I'm an actor, I'm an author/

I ran up son of Adam I'm just lookin for the pardon/
A vegan avoidin the beef that started in the garden/
I'm on my Oscar Grant and invisible children, Jena Six, Rakeem Boyd, I am Bobby Tillman/
I'm on my thief on the cross the prodigal son I was the sheep that was lost/
I'm on my mover and shakers a student of the panthers also learned in the quakers/
I'm on my Zora Neale, Absalom Jones, Harlem renaissance with a Paul Robeson poem/
I'm on my George Washington Carver a humble servant who gave all glory to the Father
I'm on my Rembrandt with a fitted cap, C.S. Lewis if he would ever rap
I'm on my Lord touch down, I love life but you can come back now
I'm on my son of a king, a fresh prince, diverse being, the talented 10th

Wade in the water
Wade in the water
God's gonna trouble the water
