Mistah F.A.B.

"Prayed Up"

[Intro]
White Rocks

[Chorus: Joseph Kay]
I been tryna better myself as a man
And only focus on what really matters
Sometimes I be losin' hope
And feelin’ like I'm just climbing a never-ending ladder
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up

[Verse 1: Mistah F.A.B.]
Sometimes you gotta, "Whew", "Sigh"
Thankful to wake up in the mornin' and see a blue sky
Memories of those that we lost after my dudes died
War goin’ on outside, you gotta choose sides
I pick the truth side, 'cause that's the true side
Black on black crime, they killin' over these blue eyes
Children of Abraham, God's people doin' the devil's work
Cemetaries flooded with shovel work
Galvanizin' and unitin’, they say it will never work
Seein’ my folks on obituaries and t-shirts, that hella hurt
Lookin' on these streets, some alive, but they died
’Cause they gave up, that's why I close my eyes and stay prayed up

[Chorus: Joseph Kay]
I been tryna better myself as a man
And only focus on what really matters
Sometimes I be losin' hope
And feelin' like I’m just climbing a never-ending ladder
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up

[Verse 2: Mistah F.A.B.]
Oh yeah, I used to wish a n*gga would
Now I just pray that he' doin' good
A wise man don't waste words on a fool
Can't let a fool get you hot, you gotta always stay cool
I used to say, "Pull up", now I say juts "Be Blessed"
Too many problems goin' on to let your problems have me stressed
And I don't wanna hear it if it's bad for my spirit
Cleanse that negativity out, don't even use it my lyrics
Ain't tryna be better than y'all, just wanna be better than the old me
I'm finally listenin' to all the things my mama told me
Sit in the bleachers and watch the game and see how they play
Take care of your family, mind your business and stay out the way
Knew granny had my back on all them nights that I forgot to pray
I love you and I'm thankful and I'm grateful, if I forgot to say it
No matter what you doin', though, you gotta find a better way
And like Pac said, we're prayin' for them better days

[Chorus: Joseph Kay]
I been tryna better myself as a man
And only focus on what really matters
Sometimes I be losin' hope
And feelin' like I'm just climbing a never-ending ladder
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up

[Verse 3: Mistah F.A.B.]
Folks is critical instead of creative
Too many arguments, too much debatin'
Why you mad? Just be motivated
Show 'em love even though they hate it
Still smilin' after all that I been through
'Cause I done watched so many eras other men do
I ain't gon' lie, it get hard, but I continue
But I'm just thankful I don't look like what I been through
Trials and tribulations, unlawful situations
The devil test your patience in a world full of hatred
Babies raised to be racist, priests slappin' their faces
Religion like the matrix, that's why so many is atheist
That's why when I pray it's to the universe
Cleansin' my karma with good deeds, hopin' that it's reversed
'Cause we've been cursed since birth for things we did on the truf
But we was just tryin' to survive 'cause our stomachs was hurt

[Chorus: Joseph Kay]
I been tryna better myself as a man
And only focus on what really matters
Sometimes I be losin' hope
And feelin' like I'm just climbing a never-ending ladder
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up

[Outro: Joseph Kay]
White Rocks
I been tryna better myself as a man
And only focus on what really matters
Sometimes I be losin' hope
And feelin' like I'm just climbing a never-ending ladder
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up
But I be staying prayed up, prayed up
Thanking God every day I wake up
