Don't Cry

Album: The Resurrection (2020)
  • (When I wake up in the morning)

    I'm bleeding out, I'm bleeding out
    My eyes are full of blood, they're closing up
    My clothes are tight enough, they cut them off
    The skies aren't bright enough to see the gods
    One hand on the crown, I'm on the ground
    Tears are falling as she's looking down
    The sky looks way darker than usual
    And it's like dark's becoming beautiful

    I told her, don't cry, be a soldier
    Now you're holding your composure
    I think I see the holy ghost
    I'm not ready yet to meet the throne
    No crying, I'm a soldier
    And I'm holding my composure
    I think I see the holy ghost
    I'm not ready yet to meet the throne

    Night, night to my enemies
    Didn't think I would survive my injuries
    Didn't think the almighty would intervene
    I know they are praying for the death of me (death of me)
    If life was a melody
    Would the angels congregate and sing for me?
    Blue lights in the sky signify tragedy
    You're chosen by the heavens and you have to leave (have to leave)

    Tell me, did you think I died for a second?
    So did I, for a second
    Oh lord, I look up into the sky
    And thank my blessing
    Are you taking me early?
    Are the gates really pearly
    Will I wake up in the morning?

    Where was you when you seen it?
    Nearly died and I mean it
    I cannot think of another time
    In life that I have needed
    The support of my people
    Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil

    That's when I told her, don't cry, be a soldier
    Now you're holding your composure
    I think I see the holy ghost
    I'm not ready yet to meet the throne
    No crying, I'm a soldier
    And I'm holding my composure
    I think I see the holy ghost
    I'm not ready yet to meet the throne

    Night, night to my enemies
    Didn't think I would survive my injuries
    Didn't think the almighty would intervene
    I know they are praying for the death of me (death of me)
    If life was a melody
    Would the angels congregate and sing for me?
    Blue lights in the sky signify tragedy
    You're chosen by the heavens and you have to leave (have to leave)

    Shoot me down, paranoia
    Bring a medic, bring a lawyer
    I can't even bear the thought of
    Living on with all this trauma
    If the blood thickens up
    And goes to your heart, will you fall apart
    When the bright days start to feel dark?
    If it's breaking my spirit and I pray
    Will you hear it? Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    If it's breaking my spirit and I pray
    Will you hear it? Hallelujah, Hallelujah
