MY CHILDHOOD WASN’T ORDINARY TYPICAL
BUT MOMMA MADE ENDS MEET
BUT THE ENDS GOT HYPOCRITICAL
I WALKED A FINE LINE
BETWEEN SPIRITUAL AND CYNICAL
HAD GOOD AND BAD FRIENDS
I WAS TAUGHT TO BE POLITICAL


ANNA’S PRAYERS
ONLY REASON I’M A MIRACLE
DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN, KNOW IT NOW
THAT I’M SPIRITUAL
I’D BE THE GAME PLAN
OUT THE GHETTO, MAN, I DIDN’T KNOW
HOLLYWOOD TO BROADWAY
HAD TO LET THE CHETTO GO


I COULD’VE MASKED UP
PUT THE VEST ON
MADE THE CHOPPER SING
YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR THAT SONG
AND IF THEY SEE ME COMING
THEY KNEW THEY DID WRONG
IF THEY SAW ME COMING
THEY KNEW THEY WERE GONE


A MENACE TO SOCIETY
I’M SURE SOME THOUGHT I WOULD BE
I’M STILL ACTING UP
JUST ON YOUR STAGE AND TV
MY PRAYER WAS THAT
MY DAD WOULD ONE DAY RECOGNIZE ME
BUT THAT MAN WOULDN’T KNOW ME
IF HE WALKED RIGHT BESIDE ME


I GOT ALL THESE ACE’S
BUT WE AIN’T PLAYING SPADES
SLITZOPHREINA ACTING LIKE
WE PLAYING CHARADES

THIS POST-TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME
I’M NOT OKAY
AND PTSD, UNFORTUNATELY, GOT TO WAIT


MOMMA, I PRAY EVERYDAY
THAT YOU ALL RIGHT

AND THE PRAYERS THAT YOU PRAYED
I'M OKAY. I'M ALL RIGHT
AND I PROMISE, MOMMA
I'M STILL FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT
ANNA, SEE YOU IN THE NEXT LIFE
