Lauren Hill - Forgive them Father

LAURYN HILL - FORGIVE THEM FATHER

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those That trespass against us Although them again we will Never, never, never trust...

Forgive them father for They know not what they do...

Beware the false motives of others Be careful of those who pretend to be brothers And you never suppose it's those who are closest to you, to you

They say all the right things to gain their position Then use your kindness as their ammunition To shoot you down in the name of ambition, they do, oh

Forgive them father for They know not what they do...

Why every Indian wanna be the chief? Feed a man 'til he's full and he still want beef Give me grief, try to thief off my piece Walk you to the increase, I must decrease?

If I treat you kindly does it mean that I'm weak? You hear me speak and think I won't take it to the streets I know enough cats that don't turn the other cheek But I try to keep it civilized like Menelik

And other African czars observing stars with war scars Get yours in this capitalistic system So many caught or got bought you can't list them How you gonna idolize the missin'?

To survive is to stay alive in the face of opposition Even when they comin' gunnin' I stand position L's known the mission since conception Let's free the people from deception If you lookin' for the answers then you gotta ask the questions

And when I let go, my voice echoes through the ghetto Sick of men trying to pull strings like Geppetto Why black people always be the ones to settle March through these streets like Soweto

Like Cain and Abel, Caesar and Brutus Jesus and Judas, back stabbers do this

Forgive them father for They know not what they do...

It took me a little while to discover Wolves in sheep coats who pretend to be lovers Men who lack conscience will even lie to themselves, to themselves

A friend once said and I found to be true That, "Everyday people, they lie to God too So what makes you think that they won't lie to you"

Forgive them father for They know not what they do...
