My Bible Lyrics by Nas

 

Ay Hit, we gon’ do some shit like this, my nigga
Yay though I walk through the valley of infidels, suckers
Who adhere to sucker religions
Life’s a bible
We livin’ in biblical times
Uh

First chapter
This chapter called Men
Given knowledge by the psychotic the block was college
We don’t add it up then that shit’ll leave us divided
It’s sorta like Ten Commandments, I’m talkin’ bout men and standards
I’m tryin’ to reverse the damage, you boys obsessed with cameras
The debt we was handed
So many move like Judas look at the past it’s proven
It’s my duty to speak truth to power
I be feelin’ like it’s my fault
Around your enemies then they call you before you hear about it
Talk to you like it’s still love keepin’ your vision clouded
Tryin’ to get cool with guys ’cause you want em to choose sides
Campaignin’ with the haters dismissin’ truth for lies
Definition of a man, don’t full on understand
For your soul the exec let you hold an advance
Don’t be discouraged just go with the plan
Gotta have faith in God’s grace over the land
And I pray for the day when they lay down and caged make their way up out that maze
Get their mind up out a daze
Too many mama’s layin’ flowers at they graves
Don’t rap about death, it’s power in what you say

Second chapter
And you get what you give, it’s power in how you live
I sit and talk with the kids
Tell em just how it is
Go straight to avoid the bids
Livin’ fast can wait, stay down work on your grades
Speak gospel for the next generation
You can have it all just don’t side with Satan
I seen it take down most of the greatest
Hotel suites, Hollywood stars hangin’
The other side of what you think is fly
Your jewelry can be cursed and so can your ride
Let that soak in your mind
Suburbans and Beamers
Shot up with neeners’
How to stop a young genius
Spiritual like a deep cut from Shirley Caesar
I wonder if it’s Jesus when a baby reach up
Sharpenin’ up myself ’cause I know they need us
My African skin gave me the passion to win
Prayin’ this doesn’t come to a tragic end

Third chapter
This chapter called Women
Ya’ll been the rib since the beginnin’
A woman’s intuition, is what a man is missin’
To understand your wisdom is something I had to learn
Somehow you the most unprotected on planet earth
Your smile lift me up and your eyes kiss my soul
Your sweetness is honeycomb, such a lovely tone
You hold the power to make a house a home
Because of you I wanna right my wrongs
Kiss your mother ’cause we only get one
A grandmother’s words to her grandson
Beautiful minds develop in time
Checks every month ’cause you held me for nine
They might see an image of a woman who’s flawed
But I see a woman in the image of God
Highest regards, I light a cigar
To man, woman, and children my bible is ours, yeah

Open it up
Listen to it in anytime
That Revelations vibe
Get you through it
Ain’t none of us perfect
I damn sure ain’t
Prayin’ this doesn’t come to a tragic end
We just gon’ hope for the best and do our best
And be our best, no less, yeah
Yo I woke up this morning and had to pray to God and thank him ’cause I made it this far
I kept it me
I’ma stay me no matter what
No matter who change up
I’ma try to get em to see the right path
‘Cause I think I’m on the right path
