lyrics

[HOOK]
I'm a dead man walking/
Shulda died, I'm a dead man walking/
John Coffey, dead man walking/
No fear I'm a dead man walking/

[VERSE 1]

Smoking on dat kill, I was breathing out death/
Knew that God was real, but I blended with the best/
Heart beating fast while I'm jiggin on dat X/
Russian Roulette every time I had sex/
Gun in my waste band, walking through the waste land/
I was such a waste man, now I am a grace man/
Stared death in the face, old me replaced and/
Now I run the race wit the pace of a pace man/
Get it? That mean I live it and now I'm leading/
No repeating, good slaves avoid a beating/
And I'm eating, that word is all I'm needing/
And I'm feeding, like broccoli to a vegan/
When you remember where you come from, you never turn/
I'm on my soul glow, shout out to big perm/
Laughing at the enemy like you never learned?/
Enemies of the King will forever burn

[HOOK]
I'm a dead man walking/
Shulda died, I'm a dead man walking/
John Coffey, dead man walking/
No fear I'm a dead man walking/

[VERSE 2]

I never knew a realer feeling than the Spirit hitting/
That power in me got me feeling like it's true religion/
I hit a knee I'm powered up, that's how I'm pluggin in it/
I'm Bobby Buschea, I'm coming and it's no defending/
I needed Gospel truth when I was deep up in my sinning/
I still need the same truth everyday I'm living/
No positivity has ever brought me true conviction/
I'm on that 116, guess I'm power trippin/
It's a tragedy the apathy and acquiescence/
They don't wanna be offending so they switch the message/
Dumb it down if you really wanna be effective/
If they preach another doctrine then I must reject it/
If the shoe fits wear it, but I still love ya/
If I won't speak truth, I ain't real brotha/
I got homies right now need that real life/
I can't tell em keep hope alive without giving Christ/
