God Bless (Sweatshop Union)

[Verse One] Man the world's on it's end and somethin gotta give How do we spawn so much evil from somethin so positive Pick a side is your prerogative Or we can just sit in here bickerin who God is Love, change, life all the above Far more than the three letter word we speak of But we judge, discriminate and hate But pray to wash it all away every Sunday There's no escape from your own devices Even with blind faith in Jesus Christ kids And far greater than any saint or savior Safe to say it takes more than faith to save ya Born and raised through honor thy neighbor While we wage another war, worship in the name of God [Chorus: repeat 2X] Like the sun up above the trees (bless) These trees allowin us to breathe (God) Whether yours, whether him or hers (bless) These people let 'em sing the words (God) [Verse Two] God it took my whole life to meet you again Forgive me those years, I didn't know how to speak to you then I speak to you now, through the ink that bleeds from this pen To seek counsel, and I think I need to repent I speak to my friends and reason with them And seek to find a way to try to stay free from the sin And yet, even if sin excedes the weed and the gin We drink not believin in the freedom within I think I believe we can win I believe it like I know I hear you breathin the wind Through the speakin of streams, the people that sing And birds beating their wings, please believe that you can speak through me And when I speak to people let my voice be love And praise and faith and hope and all that And when I've reached the speak, let 'em say my life Was light and truth until my soul was called back to God [Chorus]
