BABYLON ER

[Background vocals by Sufjan Stevens and Shara Worden]

I decree and declare that they will never be broke a day in their life
I decree and declare God will curse them will multiple streams of income at a young age
I decree and declare God will curse them will multi million dollar deals
In Jesus name Amen

Whips check, chains check, idols check, fame check
Y'all just trying to be some kings I hope you don't fail
Or fall from your God and make the truth a lie
Unless you die for your righteousness marshall law
Martyrs of a modern time I hope you ain't enlisted
For a trade you can keep your gold chains
I ain't trying to be a slave
I'm just trying to pave a way for some freedom
A lot of us searching, a lot of us curse
Perverting what was true
Ain't nobody keep their word
Asserting what is real exposing what is blurred
Misinterpreting His word
Alone in Babylon

[Hook: Kiya Lacey]
People living for nothing
In the nations wearing themselves only for fire
Fulfilling desire
Lost in a long fall to our knees in Babylon
Babylon
God bless America, God bless my city, God bless my people, God bless my family
We just living in the test of time in a twine
With the crime of America
Black and white America
Racism isn't past tense, but the color of the war has been distorted another baby aborted
Being born in a lost generation where our leaders are the rappers and the presidents' an actor
Lets just skip another chapter matter of fact lets just close the book
Ain't nobody trying to read they just rather watch TV
Watch them lies televised on the television
If I decide to spit the truth I wonder if they'll listen
Alone in Babylon

[Hook]

Well can I get a church (Amen) a church (amen!)
Now can I make a comment about the church? (go ahead)
I don't see these congregations doing work (well said)
They just dismissing other people leaving hurt (or worse)
Paparazzi preachers wanna sell faith falling victim to the system
Gotta get em enslaved
Pass the bucket, pass the bucket now lets move it to the bank
Call that organized religion thats the stuff I think I hate
Hold up can I pray
Lord forgive me for my anger, can you give me wisdom? (please)
Cause I ain't tryna fall victim to this chain system
And I know I'm in a world that spend a fallen man
I just need protection
I ain't trying to leave like Solomon
Babylon

[Hook]

Living for nothing
