Leavin’ Bird's Nest · ten o’clock on the dot · give the Ambassador a pound · then I reach into my pock · · to pull out my last ten · ‘cause he brought me in some snacks to eat · while we construct a fat track with heat · · We started with prayer · so we adjourned the same way · if the LORD wills it · then we’ll chill another day · · straight down Catherine Street · we start steppin’ · him to the 48th and me to the 51st street section · · Zipped up my coat ‘cause it was kinda chilly · hit 52nd · and saw some brothers smokin’ Phillies · · Heard one of them say, "Hey, hey. I’m crazy on the next one · that comes through with funds · Troop, he’s gone · He can be a she or she can be an it · it don’t matter · I’ve gotta get fatter · so I’ll make a hit · · So we proceed with caution movin’ kinda slow · The Ambassador said, "Life, How you gonna flow? · to the new track · come on man · you know I’m gonna do that · I’ll just be me · indeed · and stay true Black · · I gots to bring it · that thing is rugged · you gotta love it · I’ll pray pick up the pen and pad · then rush it · · Like a linebacker · then attack the · drums sack the bassline · then I’ll have to represent the Kingdom · · We near our destination · caught up in conversation · Heard footsteps comin’ like someone was chasin’ · as we turned · I heard a blast · saw a flash, felt a burn · grabbed my chest as I fell · Is it my turn? · · Hit the ground as I heard the sound of my man say, "Call 9-1-1 now!" · Everything was blurry · I heard sirens · my chest was on fire · I knew I was dyin’ · · Man, I can’t believe it · I’m not gonna see this thing through · I’ll never see my dream come true · All that hard work for nothin’ · Now my thing is busted · see that’s what I mean when people can’t be trusted · · Now doctors are pokin’ and cuttin’ · lookin’ for the sluggin’ · my chest man · I’m disgusted · · My will to live gets weaker and my body grows colder · looks like this youngin’ won’t be getting’ no older · · "Doctor, we’re losing him! His vital signs have dropped! · Check his pulse! There’s no pulse! · Check his heart! It’s stopped! · · In a fading voice I heard the doctor say, · "Give me 80 CCs. Everyone, clear the way." · · All of a sudden, I’m walkin’, me and Christ are talkin’ · I got crazy peace · evils no longer hawkin’ · · He said, "Follow me. I wanna show you somethin’, Life. You gotta represent. Absolutely no frontin’." · Showed me in my mother’s womb · Showed me as a kid · the good, bad, and unmentionables I did · · Showed me what I deserved · then showed me when he saved me · what I looked like before and after the Spirit raising · · Showed me on fire · then showed me when I was strayed · showed me a dead one · then showed me a Spirit raised · · Showed me rippin’ mics · getting’ hype with my crew · showed me playin’ hard · showed me playin’ cool · Showed me representin’ · showed me sellin’ out · showed me what my life should really be about · · Showed me the cross, as he was nailed · showed me the tomb, Him raisin’ and prevailed · Showed me His hands and side as they were scarred · Showed me the universe with its billions of stars · · He said, "Listen and understand · all power is in my hands · I chose You to represent the man; Me! I am Who I am · and I am who I Be · the original Almigh-TY · · Look at yourself on the operatin’ table · I allowed you to get bust · so that you would be able · to see you’ve got to rely on me · I am He, who inside dwells sovereignty · · Look, they’re covering you up now · your mother’s cryin’ and wonderin’ how and when she’ll see you again · she’s gotta mad faith and won’t believe this is your end · · I’m glad I’m dead · nobody loved me but my mother · Look again my brother · the waiting room’s full of brothers and sisters you’ve touched · they may not show it all the time · but they love you very much · · So what now, Lord? · I don’t want to leave you · "But you have to · I need you, to lead the seed who · have lost the way · I’ll see you on Glory day · but until then keep buildin’ and pray · and when the devil comes to test you · I’ll be there to bless you, no fear youngin’ · I’m comin’ to the rescue · · Take my Word, believe me, you have worth · and in the twinkle of an eye · I · was back on Earth · Pulled the sheet off my head as I began to wonder · was it all a dream, or did I really go under
