  • Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy and pity on your son

    Dark Past full of evil endeavors
    Heart clean never black and ugly as ever
    However I seen my family die from them rocks
    Them beams on blocks including my own pops
    Homie I seen too much to drink them two cups
    Can't lean on the lean already way too screwed up
    Was way to gone I was way to cold
    Fifty yard hail Mary I was way to thrown
    I was Tarzan raised by gorillas and the beasts
    High on them trees when I gorilla'd the beast
    Then that truth came hit me got me outta my grave
    All my partners say I'm changed
    How am I gon' stay the same huh!

    Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy and pity on your son

    Killer tryna murder it chasing ladies down for fun
    Saying come with me hail Mary but then kill the son
    However I seen them boys mane take that bar and wait for God's sake
    Beastie boy he still took three the hard way
    Toss me out heart away crucifix no jewelry
    Just wooden beams he took from me
    Took 'em up to Calvary while I was a DGK
    Wiling out to UGK runnin' from the HPD
    Huffin' puffin Mary Jane no grip chains mane
    I was looking for a super freak
    Nasty cameo candy super sweet
    But now your boy turnt up free from all them chains
    Ya volume on ten you can call it unashamed

    Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy and pity on your son

    Now I'm turnt up daily I'm on my one-eighty
    They thought I'd water it down I'm like boy y'all crazy
    On my J.O. my OJ Mayo I'm on my Grizzly
    Jesus turned me around me so fast that you would swear I was dizzy
    Now they askin' who is he now they wonderin' my name
    I run in my own lane screaming Jesus is King
    'Til my heart stop pumpin' no more blood in my veins
    Watch me turn up everyday homeboy I'm so unashamed

    Turnt up boy turnt up boy
    Turnt up boy turnt up
    Turnt up boy turnt up boy
    Turnt up boy turnt up
    Turnt up boy turnt up boy
    Turnt up boy turnt up
    Turnt up boy turnt up boy
    Turnt up boy turnt up

    Lord have mercy and pity on your son
    From what I once was to what I have become
    Lord have mercy
    Lord have mercy
