  • I'm always ready for a war again
    Go down that road again
    It's all the same
    I'm always ready to take a life again
    You know I'll ride again
    It's all the same (ooh, ooh, ooh)
    Tell me who's gon' save me from myself
    When this life is all I know
    Tell me who's gon' save me from this hell
    Without you, I'm all alone

    Who gon' pray for me?
    Take my pain for me?
    Save my soul for me?
    'Cause I'm alone, you see
    If I'm gon' die for you
    If I'm gon' kill for you
    Then I'll spill this blood for you, hey

    I fight the world, I fight you, I fight myself
    I fight God, just tell me how many burdens left
    I fight pain and hurricanes, today I wept
    I'm tryna fight back tears, flood on my doorsteps
    Life a livin' hell, puddles of blood in the streets
    Shooters on top of the building, government aid ain't relief
    Earthquake, the body drop, the ground breaks
    The poor run with smoke lungs and Scarface
    Who need a hero? (hero)
    You need a hero, look in the mirror, there go your hero
    Who on the front lines at ground zero? (hero)
    My heart don't skip a beat, even when hard times bumps the needle
    Mass destruction and mass corruption
    The souls are sufferin' men
    Clutchin' on deaf ears again, rapture is comin'
    It's all prophecy and if I gotta be sacrificed for the greater good, then that's what it gotta be

    Who gon' pray for me?
    Take my pain for me?
    Save my soul for me?
    'Cause I'm alone, you see
    If I'm gon' die for you
    If I'm gon' kill for you
    Then I'll spill this blood for you, hey

    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey

    Who gon' pray for me?
    Take my pain for me?
    Save my soul for me?
    'Cause I'm alone, you see
    If I'm gon' die for you
    If I'm gon' kill for you
    Then I'll spill this blood for you, hey

    Just in case my faith go
    I live by my own law
    I live by my own law
    I live by my own
    Just in case my faith go
    I live by my own law
    I live by my own law
    I live by my own Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Adam King Feeney, Kendrick Lamar, Martin McKinney
