    God is still with me (He's still with me) [x4]

    [Verse 1]
    It's hot like Haiti down in Hades
    The false prophet say the Lord has forsaken us black babies
    To make it off a island in Mercedes
    We going sell it white as Michelangelo's Christ
    Babies need rice, the baby need beans
    To feed our babies beans we might have to flip a bean
    I have sold my people dope yet provided them with hope
    Sinner and saint, yeah, I did ‘em both
    Yea I sold a brick on a basketball court
    And bought the uniforms for the basketball coach
    Can't wash a way the blood so I put rings on my fingers
    25 carats symbolize my redeemer
    And my redeemer's blood is capable of taking Chris Dudus
    Making him a savior of others
    My God will take a Sual, fashion him a Pual
    So only God can judge me and to hell with all y'all

    [Hook]
    I lift my eyes upon the hills
    From whence cometh my health
    Only God can judge me
    And nobody else
    I beat these streets to make the Devil a lie
    Marching at hell to the gangster's eye
    I can feel the fire still everywhere
    If heaven got a ghetto I'm a make it there

    [Bridge]

    [Verse 2]
    The critics ask why Michael never blowed
    Well, truthfully I met the Devil at the crossroad
    He offered me success in exchange for my soul
    He stripped me of my riches, broke me down like Job
    First he took my car, and then he took my house
    But he couldn't take the Lord's name out a nigga mouth
    So then he took my friends, and then he took my fame
    And then he had my former friends dirty up my name
    And while he was lying/lion I was Daniel in the den
    Walking with an angel, a testament to men
    I can walk on water, I defy the odds
    The Devil give you fame, but he can't defy my God
    My God is amazing, I don't need the Masons
    I just need the junkies and the liars and the theives
    I need the pimps, prostitues and pushers out the streets
    That's where I'm seeking God cuz that's where he found me
    That's where I'm seeking God cuz that's where he found me
    Amen

    [Hook]

    [Bridge]

    [Outro]
    They tried to tell me "Don't make these kind of records
    You're never going to be who you're suppossed to be"
    The record that people are most connected to is (God in the Building 1)
    So I give you (God in the Building 2)
    I'm a keep doing what I am doing
    I'm a keep building my testament
    My empire, my legacy, my way
    Because I know God moves through me
    God is in me at all given times
    So some of you all can shortcut, take whatever road you like to
    I prefer the high road (high road)
