Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Incomprehensible] mind, soul over body
Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
Secret Society, tryin' to keep it [Incomprehensible]

Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Incomprehensible] mind, soul over body
Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
I came down

This shit is wicked on these mean streets
None of my friends speak
We're all tryin' to win, but then again
Maybe it's for the best though
'Cause when they seein' too much
You know they tryin' to get you touched

Whoever said illegal was the easy way out
Couldn't understand the mechanics
An' the workings of the underworld, granted
Nine to five is how you survive, I ain't tryin' to survive
I'm tryin' to live it to the limit an' love it a lot

Life ills, poison my body
I used to say, Fuck mic skills
I never prayed to God, I prayed to Gotti
That's right, it's wicked, that's life, I live it
Ain't askin' for forgiveness for my sins, ends

I break bread with the late heads
Pickin' they brains for angles
An' all the evils that the game'll do
It gets dangerous, money an' power is changin' us
An' now we're lethal, infected with D' Evils

Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Incomprehensible] mind, soul over body
Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
Secret Society, tryin' to keep it [Incomprehensible]

Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Incomprehensible] mind, soul over body
Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
I came down

We used to fight for building blocks
Now, we fight for blocks with buildings that make a killin'
The closest of friends when we first started
But grew apart as the money grew
An' soon grew black-hearted

Thinkin' back, when we first learned to use rubbers
He never learned, so in turn, I'm kidnappin' his baby's mother
My hand around her collar, feedin' her cheese
She said the taste of dollars was shitty, so I fed her fifties

About his whereabouts, I wasn't convinced
I kept feedin' her money 'til her shit started to make sense
Who could ever foresee
We used to stay up all night at slumber parties
Now I'm tryin' to rock his bitch to sleep

All the years we were real close
Now I see his fears through her tears
Know she's wishin' we were still close
Don't cry, it is to be, in time
I'll take away your miseries an' make 'em mine, D'Evils

Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Incomprehensible] mind, soul over body
Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
Secret Society, tryin' to keep it [Incomprehensible]

Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Incomprehensible] mind, soul over body
Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
I came down, I came down

My flesh, no nigga could test
My soul is possessed by D'Evils
In the form of diamonds an' Lexuses
The Exorcist got me doin' skits like Homie
You don't know me but the whole world owe me, strip

Was thought to be a pleasant guy all my fuckin' life
So now I'm down for whatever, ain't nothin' nice
Throughout my junior high years, it was all friendly
But now this 'Higher learning' got the Remy in me

Liquors invaded my kidneys
Got me ready to lick off, mama forgive me
I can't be held accountable, D'Evils beatin' me down, boo
Got me runnin' with guys, makin' Gs
Tellin' lies that sound true

Come test me, I never cower
For the love of money, son, I'm givin' lead showers
Stop screamin', you know the demon said it's best to die
An' even if Jehovah witness
Bet he'll never testify, D'Evils

Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
I came down, I came down, I came down
