A Project State of Mind

by Raphael

My mind drifts 2 a place that's all 2 familiar 2 me
It's where the truth is hidden in books, TV's and between the lines in movies

It's where we stain the ground with what keeps our body warm
And people stay alive by us puttin their faces on our arms

It's where we pray 2 a gun 2 get money from a robbery
Cuz I lost faith when I saw an ATM in my church lobby

It's we look 4 a sign becuz we've fallin behind
But tell me where in the bible does it say 
to avoid goin 2 church I can pay tithes on-line

It's where daddys choose different and decide not 2 stay
Then they call us "generation X" becuz we get lost trying 2 find our way

Pain rules here and we get high 2 ignore it
Cash rules everything and we'll parasite our own people 4 it

It started with belief, now church is a business
Its no longer free, its all about percentage

Maybe we'll wake up and see in our last hours
That they've taken their belief and made them ours
