Do believe N me?

Controversy
Do U get high?
Does ur daddy cry?
Controversy {repeat}

Do believe N God?
Do believe N me?

We're all just the same
Do U wanna play?

Our Father, Who art N heaven
Hallowed B Thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will B done on earth as it is N heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
& 4give us our trespasses
As we 4give those who trespass against us
Lead us not n2 temptation
But deliver us from evil
4 Thine is the kingdom & the power
& the glory 4ever & ever

Some people wanna die so they can B free
