It's not natural if it goes against God
It's not factual, her truth is not hard
It's not natural if it goes against God
It's not factual, gimme the truth

Listen to the lyric as the negative is shrinkin'
It's shrinkin' out your life when you decide to change your thinkin'
One of the first things we gotta switch around, of course
Is Jesus Christ and him dying on the cross

You're looking at the cross, surrounded in it's mystery
With Jesus on the cross in a total misery
Now separate Jesus from the cross, so you can see
The truth about the cross and the cross's history

The cross was created by the Roman government
It's only purpose and use is capital punishment
But Jesus Christ was all about the revolution
While the cross was used as Jesus Christ's execution

See what if Jesus Christ was hung upon a tree
Upon every church wall, that's exactly what you'd see
If Jesus Christ was shot in the head with no respect
We'd all have little gold guns around our neck

If Jesus Christ was killed in electric chair, now get it
You'd be kneeling to the electric chair with Jesus still in it
You gaze upon the cross and you see the execution
You yell, "Stop the violence" but the cross, you're still using

It's not natural if it goes against God
It's not factual, her truth is not hard
It's not natural if it goes against God
It's not factual, gimme the truth

So I say listen, listen, open up your third eye vision
God is not down with religion
Religion they be sellin' it, listen up, God is intelligent
Reading of The Bible is irrelevant

You gotta look within yourself, not a scripture
KRS-One comes to rearrange the God picture
If you sit and believe, you can achieve
If you sit and accept, you don't know, what's correct or incorrect

Take for instance, Adam and Eve
The first two people on the planet or so you believe
Their first time in heaven kids they had, Cain and Abel
Now let me show you why the story's unstable

According to the story, according to what you believe
There was only Cain, Abel, Adam and Eve
On the whole planet, now use your intellect
And tell me, what did Cain and Abel do for sex?

Upon the whole planet, there was not another
Could it be for sex, they were looking at each other?
Hold up! I thought the church wasn't into that
But wait, still yet, there is another fact

How did the world get populated?
Now tell me if I'm wrong but obviously Eve had it goin' on
Think for a minute, I know it gets notorious
But yo G, check out the chorus

It's not natural if it goes against God
It's not factual, her truth is not hard
It's not natural if it goes against God
It's not factual, gimme the truth

Yo yo, yo bring that back
I wanna say something on this Blast Master session
Yo, this is Rich Nice
You brothers gotta stop treating these hoes like nice girls
And these nice girls like hoes

True indeed, I'd like to welcome the rebirth of the Goddess
Word up, it's all about knowledge of self
Yo Busta Rhymes, why don't you take the session over from here
