Take My Soul Lyrics

by Woodie


This Music Thang
I'm Doin' It For My Family And My Homies
Im Tryin' To Leave Some Cash In They Pockets Before I Go
The Clock Is Tickin'
It's Just A Matter Of Time


If Enemies Lay Me Down To Sleep
I Pray To The Lord My So He'll Keep
When I Die In This Life Of Hate
I Pray To The Lord My Soul He'll Take


In This Life Of Sin
God Tell Me Where Do I Begin
I've Rejected You My Whole Life
But Now Im Listenin'
Accepted You As My Friend
My Heart Is Open Hopin' For A Change
But I' Still A Killer Inside
I Feel It In My Viens
Ain't Got The Stength To Rise Up Out
This Concrete Battlefield
Cuz I Still Feel The Urge To Kill
Cuz Snoop Still Ain't Got Outta Jail
Plus My Closest Homeboys Deceased
I Gotta Seek Revenge
But Who Do I Avenge

Sometimes I Catch Myself Overlookin' My True Friends
I'm Tryin' To See Through All The Lies And Decite
To Make Intelligant Decisions That'll Keep Me On My Feet
But Evil Ways Make Me Stray And I Get Caught Up In The Same Shit
Riskin' My Life To Represent So Enemies Know I'm Dangerous


Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control
Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul
Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control
Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul


As I'm Sittin' In My Room
Oil'n Up My Strap I'm Thinkin' Back
On All The Different Pistols That I've Packed
All The Dirt That I've Done
With Different Weapons And Guns
And How Much Fun I Had When I Was Young
Earnin' My Striped One By One
They Added Up Sin
At The Scene I Didn't Realize It Then
But Now I Understand There's Consciquences For Every Action
Lord Could You Forgive Me For My Sins Up Till Today
But What If I Kill Again Tomarrow Does That Mean You Feel Betrayed

Cuz I Can't Promise You, That I'll Do
What The Bible Tells Me Not To
If I Feel I Gots' To Ride
Im Goin' To Ride With Or Without You
No Disrespect Intended
Don't Take Me For Satan's Child
Cuz 5-0 Got My Dirty Deeds
Gathered Up In The Gang Files

Look At My Loyalty
The Love That I Got For My Family
If Anybody Could
I Know You Would Understand Me
So When They Call My Number
And I Take My Final Breathe And Die
Please Forgive Me For My Sins
And Let My Soul Rise To The Sky


Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control

Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul
Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control
Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul


If Enemies Lay Me Down To Sleep
I Pray To The Lord My So He'll Keep
When I Die In This Life Of Hate
I Pray To The Lord My Soul He'll Take


I Live'd Another Day
Now It's Time To Live Another Night
I Take It Minute By Minute
And Hope Somehow I Do It Right
I Gotta Fight To Keep Hope Alive
That Snoop Will Get Released
But It's The Red-Suited Beast
That Gets' The Blue Suited Police

Societies Already Got Us Marked
As Killers, Dealers, And Thugs
Gangbangers Shoot'n Them Slugs
Drug Dealers Movin' Them Drugs
Ain't No Love On This Side Of The Tracks
That's Why Criminals Run In Packs
Who'else Gonna Have Our Motherfuckin' Backs

You Think Our President Ain't A Sinner
He's The Cruelist Of All
He's The One, Killin' The Inncocent With Missles And Bombs
While We Just
Up In The Street Tryin' To Maintain Human Nature
That Have Enemies So We Gangbang

Lord If You Could Shed Any Light Up On This Life Of Mine
I'd Be Willing To Listen To You At The Drop Of A Dime
Because Im Suicidal At Times
And At Times Im Homicidal
Livin' On The Borderline
Damper My Chances Of Survival


Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control
Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul
Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control
Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul
Livin' That Life, This Gangbangin' Done Took It's Toll
On The Outside I'm Fine But Inside I'm Outta Control
Tryin' To Stay Outta Prison But The Streets Pursuade My Goals
When I Lay Down To Die Will Good Or Evil Take My Soul

Lord, I Got A Question
Will You Fogive Me For My Sins If I Don't Regret 'em
Cuz Sometimes No Matter How Hard I Try, I Feel No Remorse
I Feel I Had To Do What I Had To Do
But Then Again
Maybe It's Just The Old-E Numbin' The Pain
I Dunno
'but Send Blackbird My Love


If Enemies Lay Me Down To Sleep
I Pray To The Lord My So He'll Keep
When I Die In This Life Of Hate
I Pray To The Lord My Soul He'll Take

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
