It's gravity  Keeps pullin' me down

I pen songs for the perishin' and parishioners 
Them hearers and them listeners, the home and the visitors 
This is not a game, you can't tame or make it purty 
They say the earth cursed, so our mouths stay dirty 
There's mud on the track, a slug in ya' back
 Police done pulled you over wit' a gun in ya' lap
And you ain't the power to make it through this parade 
The workers can't keep the profit everything here is vain
My job oppressive, I strive for my blessin's
The pastor so corrupt it's hard to ride with his message  Riches destroy the owners, the government think they own us
My onus is to keep the police from ridin' all up on us
Leavin' money to kids who spend it on getting' blitz 
Say, what's the point of livin' to give it up in the end
Then again, all my sin has been pinned to the cross 
I know I'm free forever from this land of the lost

[Chorus]
Yeah, every time I think I'm flying 
I'm just falling 
So close to touching the sky
But gravity keeps pulling me back down
But I can't stay here forever 
I want to go, ooh one day! 
I want to go
 Somewhere where there's no gravity 

 Somebody told me there was no such thing as truth 
I said, "If that's the case then why should I believe you?"
Murder, money, and mayhem, every place that I lay in
My problems follow suit, I'm tailor-made for this, ain't I?
It's deep. You wanna go deep? I'll take you deep
 Reality is really just cheap 
Yo' eyes wide open apparently, but you sleep 
And everything you have in your hands you'll never keep
So why hold on, I flow on to go on, before long I float on
 Eternal life is what I'm thinkin' I'mma bank my hope on
 Believe me, easy is irrelevant 
The devil want us burning for the hell of it
 Elephants in the room say we can't talk about impending doom
Or we gospel rappin' or preaching people out of they shoes 
It's cool, I'll be that dude. We glued to our depravity, 
 Until somebody free us from this gravity. Fly! 

[Chorus]
