Verse 1:

Sunday be the first day
Give God praise
Monday through Friday
Those be the work days
Rest on Saturday
Homie, you just chill
Look back on the week
It seemed so surreal
So unreal
So monotonous
So many things to deal with
So many problems
You alone can’t solve them
Going insane in the membrane
Dealing with so much pain
Can’t hide your shame
Problems stacking like dirty laundry
Don’t even have quarters to pay for your laundry
Welfare done run dry
And no food stamps
Run in to Payless Shoes
To get your new pair of Champs
No food on the table
Baby girl crying
D-Boys on the block
Crack, weed they be supplying
Listening to Little Wayne saying
“I feel like dying”
Can’t be 50
Get rich or die tryin’
Can’t be the snitch
And resort to lying
Ain’t got a job
Government cheese you be buying
Section 8 knocking on yo do’
Like J-Dubs knocking on yo do’
Eviction notice slipped under yo do'
Saying you got thirty days to go
You think “where can I go”
“With all these struggles”
“Someone burst my bubble”
“This is real trouble”
Screaming out
“Lord, I need your portion double, double”


I cry, I shout, hey Lord I’m walking in doubt
I need you more but living is just hardcore
I wonder if you’re there ‘cause no one else seems to care
These are my problems Lord, can you really solve them Lord

Verse 2:

Went to church to look for some answers
Too many questions
But very few answers
Can God answer?
You know He will
Went to the altar
Got saved to be in His will
You do it all over again
Same fake people and harsh environment
Go to work
Boss a jerk
Put in work
He laid you off first
Packed your things
Heading home on the train
Tuesday, you was good
Food in the bridge
Wednesday, running out of food in the fridge
Thursday, now you almost over the edge
No food, no food stamps
Really gotta make a way
No job, no money
Gotta find some way
Your baby’s starving like Marvin
She’s winin’, baby girl crying
Drugs can get you away
But you deny them
It’s Friday
Plus it’s a pay day
House is a mess
Section 8 says you got thirty days to go
And you feel like you’re under house arrest
Screaming “Lord, deliver me out of this mess!”


Verse 3:

Friday at the club
Trying to take it easy
Mind is occupied
Everyday living isn’t easy
Go home on Saturday
All alone, no peace in your mind
Calling on Jehovah Shalom
Saying “Lord, did I not get saved”
“Ain’t I one of your children?”
“Why do I feel like a slave?”
Then you hear God say;
“My child I love you”
“My ways are above you”
“My thoughts aren’t your thoughts”
“I don’t know what you thought”
“’Cause this walk isn’t a lame walk”
“I call my children to suffer with my Son”
“I heard you, I see you”
“I will never leave you”
“But you must follow my ways”
“Change your mind, on your knees and pray”
“Humble yourself, I will show you the way”
“But you must be obedient”
“And renounce your sinful ways”
At that, you got right with the Lord
Got discipled and you got in His Word
Knowing that you don’t deserve
His grace, His love, His salvation
No more sleeping on God
And no more vacations
When you got serious
Then the Lord restored you
New job, new house
Family restored too
But that doesn’t mean problems still won’t arise
You can get through it though
Just rely on Christ
Uh, just take His guiding hand
‘Cause you know God
Definitely has a plan
