After bein' 25 you know

Just trying to survive in the world

'Bout to have a little boy or baby girl who knows

Anyway just when you start getting' that little age

And experience to you

You start thinkin' about stuff

Tryin' to make the right moves

So bust it out this is what I was thinkin' check it

Yo the education of the Lon-chicka-Lonnie Lynn

Began began with time

Bein' my bloodline is one with the divine

In time brotha you will discover the light

Some say that God is black and the devil's white

Well the devil is wrong and God is what's right

I fight with myself in the ring of doubt and fear

The rain ain't gone but I can still see clear

As a child given religion with no answer to why

Just told believe in Jesus 'cuz for me he did die

Curiosity killed the catechism

Understanding and wisdom became the rhythm that I played to

And became a slave to master self

A rich man is one with knowledge

Happiness and his health

My mind had dealt with the books of Zen Tao the lessons

Koran and the Bible to me they all vital

And got truth within 'em gotta read them boys

You just can't skim 'em different branches of belief

But one root that stem 'em

But people of the venom try to trim 'em

And use religion as an emblem

When it should be a natural way of life

Who am I or they to say to whom you pray ain't right

That's who got you doin' right and got you this far

Whether you say In Jesus name or Al hum du'Allah

Long as you know it's a bein' that's supreme to you

You let that show towards others in the things you do

'Cuz when the trumpets blowin'

24 elders surround the throne

Only 144 000 gon get home

Only 144 000 gon get home

Only 144 000 gon get it baby

I've lived and I've learned

I have taken and I've earned

I have laughed I've cried

I have failed and I have tried

Sunshine pouring rain

Found joy through all my pain

I just wanna be happy with being me

Let me voice my concern

So many of my fellow brothers have given themselves a title

That their actions didn't earn

Our ignorance is in the same breath as our innocence

Subconsciously seeking to find

An impressionable mind to convince

I've finally come to the realization

Why black people in the worse place

'Cuz it's hard to correct yourself

When you don't know

Who you are in the first place

So I try to find the clue in you

But evidently white folks know more black history than we do

Why're we bein' lied to

I ain't know our history was purposely hidden

Damn somethin' in me wanna know who I am

So I began my search

My journey started in church

It gave my heartache relief

When I started to understand belief

Hustlin' was like a gift spent my share of time in the streets

Taught me survival from this evil

I'm just gonna have to deal with

And I felt like a fool when I tried to learn it in school

It almost seemed like a rehearsal when the only

Science and math are universal

Takin' elder advice read the Bible the Koran

Searched scrolls from the Hebrew Israelites

Hold on this ain't right Jesus wasn't white

Some leads were granted with insight

And it's all in the plan

But it took me some time to overstand

He still created with the imperfection of man

So with followin' I disagree

By no means have I forgotten or forgiven

What's been done to me but

I do know the devil ain't no white man

The devil's a spiritual mind

That's color blind there's evil white folk and evil niggas

You gon surely find there's no positivity without negativity

But one side you gonna have to choose

Any chance to speak I refuse to misuse

So how can you call yourself God

When you let a worldly possession

Become an obsession

And the way you write your rhymes

And can't follow your lesson

If a seed's sown you make sure it's known

You make sure it's grown

If you God then save your own

Don't mentally enslave your own

If you God then save your own

Don't mentally enslave your own

If you God then save your own

Don't mentally enslave your own

Well I've lived and I've learned

I've taken and I've earned

I have laughed I have cried

I failed and I have tried

Sunshine pourin' rain

I found joy through my pain

Just wanna be happy bein' me bein' me
