R U still thirsty or would U rather have the water?
C'mon
Yeah, ooh

Come and take my coffee, we gonna have 1, not 7 cups
And then 2 packs of cigarettes a day, 2 packs 2 much
Open up ur window, cuss the whole world, if U please
When the day comes no 1 listens, get down on ur knees

Pray, the voice inside, it don't stop
Pray, the reason 2 b, don't stop
Listen 2 what it say and picture 1 more day
Live a different way cuz it's ur play, it's ur play
Yeah, ooh

Listen
Don't take my word about it, my rap is cut and dry
I'll walk a thousand crooked roads while standing on the line
Yes, some people love 2 cry, I never close my eyes
Never have I stopped listening 2 the voice inside

Pray, the voice inside, it don't stop
Pray, the reason 2 b, don't stop
Talk and listen 2 what it say and picture every day
Live a different way, it's ur play, it's ur play
Oh, it's my play now
Yeah, ooh
Say it

Maybe we'd all b better off listenin' 2 the voice inside
We listen 2 the voice inside

Take another piece of candy, have a hundred if U like
Just don't cry, but wait and I'll free this bike
Just don't U cry, just don't U cry
Get on ur knees and pray 2 the voice inside

Pray, the voice inside, it don't stop
Pray, the reason 2 b, don't stop
Listen 2 what it say and picture 1 more day

Then we could all just listen un2 the voice inside, the good
Will not b evil when we could all take this mutha higher... yeah!
The voice inside
The voice inside
Now come on!
Shout it out, the voice inside! {repeat}
I got 2...
The voice inside
The voice inside (Shout it out now)
Oh yeah

Thirsty?
Chill out
Thirsty, thirsty
Get on ur knees
Pray it don't stop
Get on ur knees
Pray it don't stop, pray it don't stop
