Check it, 1 2, uh

I hitched a train (mmhmm) between here and St. Paul
Had no idea (no) had 2 sleep n a pig stall (Dirty, dirty)
Once I got home, the dirt that covered me
Nothing like the disappointment that U would never see

Same page but a different book
So much more n common if U'd only look
There's only 1 God, whatever name we took
Only matters when it comes 2 war
What r we, what r we, what r we fighting 4?

Breathe
Let it breathe

New kids on the block tryin' 2 make their bed
(Mmm) Here come another rock (here come y'all) upside their head
There go the missiles headed 4 the 'hood (Oh Lord)
Trigger another car bomb did nobody no good

But we're on the same page but a different book
So much more n common if U'd only look
There's only 1 God, whatever name we took (Whatever...)
Only matters when it comes 2 war
What r we, what r we, what r we fighting 4?

Alright, listen y'all
We're about 2 let this thing just groove
Mm, move
C'mon

Chapter, verse, which came 1st?
Thinkin' 2 slow while they snatch ur purse
Faith, love, good deeds, practicing what U preach
Between U and me, TV ain't reality
That's right, I said it, it's said
Buy this, cop that, all up n yo' head
24-hour news, that ain't right, huh
Them suckers got U day-dreamin at midnight (Hey)
Huh

Galatians chapter 3 says the law was as good as dead
Havin' faith n the life, death and resurrection of the 2nd Adam instead
Would bring our souls salvation if there's works n the faith we choose
But if U're all alone throwin' stones
Who do U think's gonna lose, who do U think's gonna lose?

Same page (oh) but a different book (Hehe)
So much more n common (hey) if U'd only look (Only look y'all)
1 God (yes it is), whatever name we took (Tell 'em)
Only matters when it comes 2 war
What r we, what r we, what r we fighting 4? (Oh)

Same page, different book
Same page, different book
Same page, different book
Only matters when it comes 2 war
What r we, what r we, what r we fighting 4?

Same page, different book
Watch out 4 the sinister minister
They out there y'all
Uh
Same page (looka here), different book
U better off chillin' till the world ends, mm
What r we, what r we, what r we fighting 4?
