Now I see it’s so clear so when them clouds don’t break
Them drops might hit me but the wet won’t take
Its like, these Romans want martyrs to bleed
But the more that we see makes it harder to grieve
eden’s jungle, snack on the meek and humble
number one rule is die for the hustle
but kings won’t live for the God in our struggle
to turn gold from dust of the concrete rubble
