And we're introducing the starting lineup We're gonna introduce now the North Clayton Eagles Coached by James Gwynn His starters, number 21, Tauheed Epps Yeah Pray for our sins, I... Pray for our souls, the... Tears that we're cryin' Let 'em all be forgiven Let it all be forgiven (When your dream, when your dream, dream, dream) Just let it all be forgiven When your dreams turn to nightmares Transactions turn to Nike Airs Went to Greenbriar Mall and bought five pairs I stayed in the Creek, junkies used to preach In the dope game, tryna reach my peak and go undefeated I pleaded with the judge, this my first offense High school b-ball, I'm tryna get a scholarship No ACC, SEC, ClayCo APD On a bumpy road like an ATV, EBT Used to give me peace I smile on the outside, inside discreet As far as the past, wish I could press delete Let my dogs off the leash Rather buy it than lease or get murdered in the streets, fine line Who can learn Pray for the children (I pray) I pray for our healing (I pray) I know you feel it (I know you feel it) Just let it all be forgiven (Lord forgive him, yeah) Just let it all be forgiven (Lord forgive him, yeah) Your sins, let 'em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him) Dead lies, that is how we livin' (Lord forgive him, that is how we livin', yeah) Just let it all be forgiven Got a phone call from Lil' Fate Somebody shot his son, he didn't make it My head achin', hands started shakin' Foul beyond flagrant He said, "Bro, what I'm supposed to do?" I paused, remorseful We been partners since public school Kids ain't supposed to die before us As a parent, it's apparent, ain't no parents Seeing stops once we leave the carriage Cold of the streets react with the heat to create balance One of the biggest revenge is prayer Me, Sean, Dre, and Chris was there Guess Flesh won't spend Christmas there But in spirit, know you hearin' it loud and clear Whole family miss you as we stare off in the atmosphere No fear Pray for our sins, I... I pray for our souls, the... Tears that you're cryin' Just let 'em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him) Let 'em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him) Just let 'em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him) Your sins let 'em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him) Hey, I don't know need to hear this Dead lies, that is how we livin' But if you're doin' somethin' to make... Just let it all be forgiven If you're doin' somethin' to make your parents have to bury you You may want to slow down Everything got a consequence, whether good or bad Rest in Peace Shaylin Bigg, I love you, bruh You know what I'm sayin'? My other partner lost his son too, right before the 18th birthday We out here bullshit, for what? Pray for my soul You don't get another life This ain't no practice life Pray for my sins These tears that I'm crying, let them all be forgiven Let them all be forgiven That's it, that's it In all his majesty and might, his brilliance and his beauty His black and his blue "Boy," still slips from their lips when they address him Still linger in the velvet of his dreams, the scene unseen Black boy fightin' for manhood in a world that still sees through Jim Crow lens Oh, them love him in his place Separate, away, torn, disconnected, passive, submissive, and shufflin' Oh, now just turn that shufflin' into dancin' 'Cause you know them love black boys dancin' And singin' and ballin' You know them love black boys' strength But don't love black boys Let me see your hands
