May the Lord have mercy on my soul
 Forgive me for my fetishes, my purchases, my clothes  Allow me to catch my rhythm so the nervousness just goes
That's why I sound so certain in my verses and my flows 
The verbiage just gets merciless the wordsmithness just rolls 
I've tuned into my pertinence, my purposes, my goals 
The feeling when you realize you've been working for your foes
And the curtains have just opened and they worthlessness exposed
You remember where you came from, where the purses was stole  There was nothing in the oven and just work up on the stove 
And you blossomed from the bottom, yeah, you worked with it and rose
From nothing to a dozen and a gardener that grows 
Tell 'em!

 Courage under fire, gave me a brave heart (That's me)
 Courage under fire, gave me a brave heart
(Yes sir)
 Brave heart
(Yeah I got that) Brave heart
(You know) Brave heart

May the Lord have mercy on my soul
Like shows keep cushion where I land
Keep the devil off my heels 
But please keep me on my toes
Like a reposessor checking for everything I drove 
Like I owe, but I don't
Paid my dues from the go
 Doing donuts in the door, keep my shoes on the floor  Revered by the rich, plus approved by the poor
I guess it's better when they sniff it
(I've been sped up where they sniff it)
And screwed up where they pour
See I flew so way up high
And I scuba'd way down low
Put the top down on my fears 
Put the roof up on my woes
I dropped that food and liquor to put you up on my stove 
They shoplifted and stole 
That just let me know they know
That was Lupe #1 now this version #4
And I still feel like a virgin me versus the globe 
From the surface to the cove
I took on the biggest wave
And I surfed it to the shore with no pomade in my fro
Took the wood from the slave ships and furnished my abode 
Now that boat is now my bed, desk, dressers and my drawers 
Now that's a house of pain!
Plus I use nooses when I hang up all my clothes 
Couldn't change up if I chose 
That's me

 Courage under fire, gave me a brave heart (That's me)
 Courage under fire, gave me a brave heart
(Yes sir)
 Brave heart
(Yeah I got that) Brave heart
(You know) Brave heart

May the lord have,
 Mercy on my soul
