Mic check, 1, 2, 1, 2, this is dedicated to
An old friend of mine, Michelle
She a holy roller now, turned over a new leaf
Now everything old gonna burn

Ms. Holy Roller, new angel
Got your Bible out shoutin and youre ringin' a bell
Mid-life, reborn, cant wait to tell
If I dont believe what you believe, Im goin' to Hell

Ive been down with Jesus since Sunday school & Easter speeches
The Bible was survival, thats what my grandma would teach us
Since I was 5, Ive been dyin' and tryin' to read it
And when I did, it redefined it
Now you was 34 when you found Jesus after your life fell to pieces
Wife 2 times, with 2 guys, now enlightened in speeches
Seemed to flow out your mouth with the hype of a preacher
Took your whole life to reach you, now Im a trifling creature

Ms. Holy Roller, new angel
Got your Bible out shoutin and youre ringin' a bell
Mid-life, reborn, cant wait to tell
If I dont believe what you believe, Im goin' to Hell

Come on, if I die right this second, I reckon
That God would simply check into my life and times
Dissecting my rhymes, hell see how Ive been leadin' his troops
You cant do dirt your whole life, then say, Oops"

Now where was Jesus, when you was cheatin' me
When you was deceivin' me?
Where was Jesus when you greedy, your lawyers was bleedin' me?
Where was Jesus when every weekend, a new man livin' with you?
Oh, wait, he was with me, trying to keep me from killin' you
Now, where was Jesus when you was lyin' and you was betrayin' me?
When I was tryin' to make it, you was hatin delayin me, huh?
Where was Jesus when the ice was thrillin' you
Oh, wait, he was he with me tryin' to keep me from killin' you

If I aint know Jesus, aint no tellin' where I would be
Its been nights I felt like feces, I needed to fight to release it
Im in the limelight, its hot and the heat is ceaseless
Holdin' my tongue while little bums cut me to pieces
The only reasons 'cause I studied the life of Jesus
And venting with my pen, intendin' to write and release it
But when an ex-friend would slight me or slam me with venom
I hate it, I cant stand it, dammit, I really resent it

I always strive to be righteous, my version of God
The reason why I never write verses with curses inside
The reason I never purposely hurt persons, Ive applied
Many teaching of God, searching the reaches of God
Pondered the mysteries of why you be dissing me
I adore you all I hope for you is freedom from misery
You made mistakes and blunders, you breaking from under
But yo, if Im goin' to Hell, its making me wonder

Now where was Jesus, when you was cheatin' me
When you was deceivin' me?
Where was Jesus when you greedy, your lawyers was bleedin' me?
Where was Jesus when every weekend, a new man livin' with you?
Oh, wait, he was with me, trying to keep me from killin' you
Now, where was Jesus when you was lyin' and you was betrayin' me?
When I was tryin' to make it, you was hatin delayin me, huh?
Where was Jesus when the ice was thrillin' you
Oh, wait, he was he with me tryin' to keep me from killin' you

The greatest atrocities ever committed
On this planet have been in the name of God
This country was founded by Puritans
For the expressed purpose of oppression-free worship
Your attitude is the same arrogant, fearful fundamentalism
That fueled the hatred of the Crusades and the attacks on 9/11
If we are not allowed to worship God
As groups and individuals free from persecution
In respectful tolerance, theres only one outcome

Ms. Holy Roller, new angel
Got your Bible out shoutin and youre ringin' a bell
Mid-life, reborn, cant wait to tell
If I dont believe what you believe, Im goin' to Hell

Yo, Ms. Holy Roller, new angel
Got your Bible out shoutin and youre ringin' a bell
Mid-life, reborn, cant wait to tell
If I dont believe what you believe, Im goin' to Hell
