Who Do You Believe In? Lyrics - 2Pac

Review The Song (7)

(featuring Yaki Kadafi)

[Intro: 2Pac]
Let us pray
Heavenly Father, hear a nigga down here
Before I go to sleep
Tell me, who do you believe in?
Who do you believe in?
[Verse One: 2Pac]
I see mothers in black cryin, brothers in packs dyin
Plus everybody's high, too doped up to ask why
Watchin our own downfall, witness the end
It's like we don't believe in God cause we livin in sin
I asked my homie on the block why he strapped, he laughed
Pointed his pistol as the cop car passed and blast
It's just another murder, nobody mourns no more
My tear drops gettin bigger but can't figure what I'm cryin for
Is it the miniature caskets, little babies
Victims of a stray, from drug dealers gone crazy
Maybe it's just the drugs, visions of how the block was
Crack came and it was strange how it rocked us
Perhaps the underlyin fact stay high explain genocide
It's when we ride on our own kind
What is it we all fear, reflections in the mirror
We can't escape fate, the end is gettin nearer
[Chorus 2X: 2Pac]
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin
And even though it's hard, that's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin, I'm askin the grievin - who do you believe in?
[Verse Two: 2Pac]
Can't close my eyes cause all I see is terror
I hate the man in the mirror
Cause his reflection makes the pain turn realer
Times of Armageddeon, murder in mass amounts
In this society where only gettin the cash counts
I started out as a beginner
Entered the criminal lifestyle became a sinner
I make my money and vacate, evade prison
Went from the chosen one to outcast, unforgiven
And all the Hennessy and weed can't hide, the pain I feel inside
You know, it's like I'm livin just to die
I fall on my knees and beg for mercy, not knowin if I'm worthy
Livin life thinkin no man can hurt me
So I'm askin -- before I lay me down to sleep
Before you judge me, look at all the shit you did to me, my misery
I rose up from the slums, made it out the flames
In my search for fame will I change? I'm askin
[Verse Three: Kadafi]
Faith in Allah, believe in me and this plastic
Cause so far I done witnessed to many dead niggaz in caskets
With they chest plates stretched like elastic
And what's worse I'm on front line, holdin down camp, still mashin
Heard my cousin, one of the old heads from the block
Just came home October of '95 back in Yardsville stuck
with a three to five, if he don't act up, now he realize
If you don't stay wise, then in this game you fucked
Talk to my baby girl, give me the word on what she heard
One of the grimmies is snitchin, Diamond a stool pigeon I talked to him
He said he didn't, my man said he did, in fact he's sure
Cause he just came home off of bail
[2Pac] Now tell me
[Outro: spoken word]
Who do you believe in?
Is it Buddah, Jehovah, or Jah? Or Allah?
Is it Jesus? Is it God? Or is just yourself?
Definately not to be imposed, being a demon
Because this is the joy of believing!
Men, to believe in yourselves
But for sure, the higher power
Resides only to ride in the heart of the true
From the soul, of the man; for truth never has an alibi
In the poetry, or in it's realm
That's what pulls all words together
Just to understand, that every man, is his OWN man
And only man can satisfy the man
Only the soul of the man, the feelings of the man
The for realness of the man
You can't shake the man when you feel the man you know the man
And you gotta call yourself because you are that man
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin
[singing while 2Pac speaks]
Who do you believe in? Put my faith in God, and
Blessed and still breathin
[singer] + (2Pac)
Even though it's hard (Who do you believe in?)
That's who I believe in (Put my faith in God)
Before I'm leavin (Even though it's hard)
I'm askin the grievin
(Before I'm leavin I'm askin the grievin - who do you believe in?)
Who do you believe in? (Who do you believe in?)
Who do you (Blessed and still breathin)
Oh blessed, oh blessed
(Before I'm leavin I'm askin the grievin - who do you believe in?)
Oh who do you
Do you believe in
[2Pac over singer]
Who do you believe in?
I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathin
And even though it's hard, that's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin I'm askin the grievin - who do you believe in?
[singer] + (2Pac)
I'm askin (Who do you believe in?)
I'm askin you (Put my faith in God)
(That's who I believe in)
(Before I'm leavin I'm askin the grievin - who do you believe in?)
Who do you believe in?
I'm blessed and still breathin
That's who I believe in
Before I'm leavin, I'm askin the grievin
Who do you believe in?

Peace to the True and Living...This is one of the songs that began to show the change that a man matures through. The reflection and introspection is seen through Tupac's lyrics. To shine light forth for all to see, you must first possess the light. The 85% know that something is taking place but because they remain deaf, dumb and blind to the reality of their ownselves they perish. The various deities cited within the lyrics show all the avenues that the 10% give us to chase and the ultimate reality is you and the science that it took to create you...so who do you believe in?

This is perfection. The lyrics didn't really connect to the beat. Forget the beat. The lyrics are true to life. He's been gone for fifteen years, but they are still true. He spoke of the hood. The pain now is that it is the world. One line "it's like we don't believe I. God cause we're living in sin". People talking about the illuminati need to grow up. Even if it is true. We're not killing each other in the hood or on the block anymore. It's the world. He was love. And his lyrics are as relevant as when he wrote them. We can't win, there is no excuse. We don't care about the people being killed. We all should learn. But no one wants to. We do as we are told. Our own kind is the world. Illuminati? Fuck you. This song is to love. It's to live

Retard | Reviewer: Wyatt | 12/31/11

This song is not about the illuminati retard,
you watched music industry exposed, sick bud
conspiracy theorists are people that have made no real accomplishments in their life so they try and make themselves special by making up some stupid shit like that. It makes sense by not telling you
certain facts so your mind automatically connects the dots. Did you know baphomet beeing a devil is beleived by only a small group of people. He is more widely and anciently known as a symbol of equality. And if u haven't realized the all seeing eye is on the dollar bill, that's why rappers talk about. Don't beleive everything you see.

This songs about the Illuminati. The Illuminati is a secret Satanic organization that controls 98% of the media, movies, and music to subconsciously control society in preparation to the end of the world. Celebrities sell their soul to Satan in order to gain riches and power beyond belief; Tupac was apart of this society but realized his faith in Jesus Christ and began writing music expressing it (Who Do You Believe?). Shortly after this song was created Tupac was murdered in cold blood. Repent before May 21 if you don't want to be apart of the Nouvos Ordo Seclorem

Faith in Allah, believe in Allah,2pac is supper May his soul rest in perfect peace Cause he made us wake up from slumber.Thank you once again pac you are best of all,No one can be compared to you.You are the best PAC...

Who do you believ in | Reviewer: Jay Robinson | 4/1/10

Sarah, this song is about religion and looking at the world in it's current state of war, greed, sin, and death. 2pac is looking at the world from how he sees it and how the future of the world is bleek, due to the aforemention, reasons. This song captures the depth of 2pac and how even though he was troubled in his own life, he saw that it's not just his life that is/was troubled but the whole world. He was socially conscious and was aware of the dramatic change the world is/was going through and this song reflects on how things changed but also stayed the same, in aspects. I hope I helped you understand, even though I am 3 years late.
